Came for a three day weekend getaway and booked here when our first choice hotels in Wildwood Crest were already closed for the season. Cape May has some very nice B&B's but most are on side streets and in town, and when we go to the Jersey Shore we prefer to see and hear the ocean. We had no history... More

My wife and I tried a number of other accommodations in Cape May before making the Sea Crest Inn our standard. We use it now for our spring and fall birding trips to Cape May, and have never been disappointed. The location is perfect, both because of the great view of the beach and the sunset from the balcony, and... More

We have been coming here for many, many years and always look forward to our Fall retreat. The fourth floor rooms are the best, we sit on the balcony most nights watching the lighthouse and listening to the crashing waves. No cellphones, no laptops, no loud music.The beds are very comfortable, slept like a baby.The view is great, the office... More

My sister and I have been going to Cape May for several years now. We started staying at The Sea Crest during the annual retreat that my sister's church hosts every spring at the property right behind the inn. Preferring not to share a bathroom with about 30 other people, we booked into The Sea Crest. We always get a... More

The Sea Crest has a great location, right on the beach in Cape May City. The rooms are spacious, clean, and modern; mine had a full kitchen, which we'd take advantage of on another stay. Though the hotel has a parking lot, it is best suited for tiny vehicles; street parking was no problem in September, but I suppose it... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, everything very nice. Our 2 room suite was spacious with a comfy king bed, comfy bedding. Full kitchen completely new. Our fourth floor room faced the pool and the ocean, we could watch the sunset each night from our balcony. Two tv's but limited channels, only 12 in the bedroom, couldn't figure out why. Very...

The Motel is directly across from the ocean and boardwalk on the quiet side of town. Pool area and rooms are clean but linens need improvement - towels have stains and are rough, bedding dated.
