“Great customer service and great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Stayed here for 3 nights for our anniversary and had a great time. Hotel is a little out dated and room lay out was a little weird. We stayed in an ocean view suite but very clean and customer service was great.

Good location- across from the beach- and excellent views of the sunrise. Pool was open in early October- inviting and brisk when you got out. Well worth a visit but probably mobbed during he summer. Hope they survived Superstorm Sandy!

Room Tip: the least expensive rooms have a view of the buildings in the rear. Worth getting a room that has a...

We had another very enjoyable stay for two nights at the Sea Crest. Great location, with beautiful view of the beach. Close to Cape May Point and great birding activities. Very clean and comfortable rooms, and pleasant staff.

This is the 2nd year we stayed at the sea Crest Motor Inn,last year was the 1st year we spend four days there - we liked it so much we came back this year (2011) and spent five days and wish we were there longer. It is very practical for a couple like us we are in our 70's and our children are grown - so we are on our on. The hotel is very clean and the staff was great and everyone was very accommodating. You could not ask for a better location - we were on the 2nd floor with an Oceanview room where we enjoyed the great view of the ocean and the pool.
I would recommend this motel to any of our friends. We are hoping to return next year.
On another note - I hope your property was not too affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Clean, comfortable beach view property. We had a wonderful 3rd floor ocean view room that was very comfortable and enjoyed watching the ocean over coffee both mornings we were there. It is an older property but the bed was very comfortable and the staff was very helpful.

We stayed at the Sea Crest for a week in October. In fact this was the first time that we were able to make "Victorian Week" in Cape May. This hotel is very clean and the staff could not be nicer. They will help you with whatever you need and answer any questions you have. The hotel is right on the beach and many of the rooms have beach views. We have stayed here before and they never disappoint us. Compared to other hotels in the area I would say that this is the best buy for your money. Rooms are clean, it's close to the beach and town and you have low rates. What more could you ask for. I would recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good but we prefer the 4th floor suites. They have the best view of the ocean...

We stayed here for two nights in mid-october in a fourth floor beach view room. Easy to find, within walking distance to Washington Square, across the street from the beach. Everything was clean and the staff were very nice. Free, covered, off street parking is a plus. The room needs a little work, plaster a little rough in the bathroom and the door lock was extremely difficult to turn, but the bed was great and the location is perfect. Would recommend this to friends.
