We stayed here last minute due to the fact that the motel the rest of our family was staying at was booked and the Sea Chest had good reviews. The owner said that we could pay with a credit card when I made the reservation and then when we arrived he pressured us into paying in cash. And then hounded us to go to an ATM the first day as we were heading to the beach. The rooms are clean, but it looks like they haven't been updated since 1970 including the beds. They were pretty hard and uncomfortable. It also says on their trip advisor page that they have high speed internet access. We asked them for the login info, but we were never able to find a network name by the one provided. I will say that they were accommodating when we showed up late the night of check in and the location is convenient and very close to the beach. Overall, I'm not sure I would stay here again.
