We've been staying at Seacrest for many years and it is definitely our favorite spot at the Jersey Shore! The motel and grounds are impeccably maintained. We always stay in the Royal room which is a nice suite with separate bedroom and direct oceanfront view.

Wonderful hotel...even in the off season - we felt like it was the busy season, as our room was exceptionally clean and the staff was present (our house-keeper was busy about the rooms, the gardener was trimming away expired plants and freshening up the grounds, the office staff was in the office and available) -- yet, it was nice and...

After doing a lot of research about where to stay in Cape May, before continuing our trip south by ferry, we finally settled on the Sea Crest because of its great location at one end of the beachfront road, and because of its low off-season price, of just $110 for an oceanview, king bedded room with balcony. Strangely enough, they... More

No reservations online as far as I know, but the lady who took mine on the phone was very nice as were the ones when I checked in. They told me about the area and what was going on. Had a suite on the 2nd floor that overlooked the pool area and ocean view. Very roomy and clean room. Had... More

We stayed in late Oct/Nov .. we had an ocean view. The hotel was very clean, the rooms were neatly put together and had what we needed. Our view was wonderful. The people at the desk were very nice. I'm sure summer rates are much higher, but for an off season trip - much cheaper than a B&B and quite... More

I agree this inn is indeed clean however, our room, one of their most expensive rooms, had a distinct musty, mildewy type odor. We tried opening the windows but like other viewers have mentioned we very quickly had a room filed with cigarette smoke. On a positive note it was obvious the owners take pride in their establishment. Rooms, hallways,... More

We wanted to book a last minute trip to Cape May, which seemed almost impossible. After looking at a lot of places, I stumbled upon the Sea Crest Motor Inn.

Although we do typically have a two night minimum during the summer, if we have rooms that aren't reserved we will rent one night, so it is always worth giving a call last minute, glad you were able to get a room with us, and enjoyed your stay!

We agree with many of the reviews about the positive aspects of Sea Crest Inn: the location, the cleanliness of the rooms, the free parking. The pool and hot tub were great. However, guests are allowed to smoke on the balconies, which are shared, and as a consequence, the smoking of neighbours constantly affected our air, whether we were on... More
