The Sea Crest Motor Inn is one of, if not the best, value in Cape May. This was our second visit there and the staff was friendly, accommodating and very responsive to our needs. Great view of the ocean in an adult-like motor inn. Private, secure parking was a bonus and a great pool and hot tub. We met several great guests during our stay and the laid-back setting was just what we needed. Conveniently located to great restaurants and shopping and just a short drive to great things-to-do. We stayed at another hotel last visit....just to see what was out there, but we will definitely be going back to the Sea Crest from now on for our visits to Cape May.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 2nd floor or higher for a better view of the ocean from your balcony.

Wife and I sneak away to Cape May once a year. Place is quiet, great restaurants, clean beaches and some great smaller hotels along the ocean street. Sea Crest is one of these and the stay is always relaxing. Bob and staff always make you feel welcomed. Facility is very well maintained and rooms are basically new, great beds and bath, hardwood floors and kitchens in suites. Rooms all have a porch facing the ocean. Price wise tough to beat their rates for ocean front in the northeast! Plenty of parking, great pool and steps from the beach, restroom and snack shack.

We have spent every Memorial day weekend in Cape May for the past 5 years. The Sea Crest is by far one of the best values in Cape May. The entire facility is spotless. Our room was extremely clean as were the stairwells, elevator, and pool area. It is obvious that the owners as well as the entire staff take great pride in this property. On site parking is a plus. Less that a 10 minute walk to Washing Street Mall. Beach is directly across the street. Staff was extremely friendly. We will be returning.

Room Tip: Breezeway rooms are small and have a small fridge and a coffee maker. Perfect for 2 for a short stay...

This is our fourth time here. We are always happy with our visit and a nice addition to each visit is constant improvements. New linens, paint, landscaping, etc. These are nice people and staff! Our first night here this time the a/c wasn't working. They replaced it quickly and gave us a fan until it was done...tho we didn't really need it. Heated pool, hot tub, clean, efficient, comfortable, good location, what more can we ask for? Whatever it might be, they'll do it.

Room Tip: This is a good value esp. Memorial Day week. There is a nice price range according to room location...

I love cape may and go frequently. but last summer it was a beautiful weekend and I wanted to get away so my boyfriend and I took off for the weekend .. We stayed at the Sea Crest we had a great room that was supposed to be a breezeway room with no view... but if you looked out the window you could still see the ocean and beach.. it was a great little room. And the pool was perfect, warm and very clean. I stayed prior to this visit as a child at the Sea Crest but didn't remember those visits very well. But Was very pleased with this last visit. The staff and owners were very friendly upon check in and check out. And the room was well appointed and clean. Will def consider staying there again on another visit to the Cape!

Room Tip: the breezeway rooms are a great value for those of us on tighter budget, you may not have the direct...

We stayed at the Sea Crest the week before Memorial Day. The staff were very nice on the phone as well as when we checked in. We reserved an ocean view motel room on the third floor. Having stayed at hotels in South Florida that were literally right on the ocean, I was a bit disappointed that (a) the hotel was set back from the beach as they all are in Cape May (see the photo from the room attached); and (b) that the balcony was shared so if you keep the blinds open there isn't privacy because people can walk right by your room (unless you get a corner room which was not offered to us); but these issues are not the hotel's fault - you just need to know what you are getting. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The picture quality on the TV monitor was low and there weren't too many channels. The towels were standard motel issue (not very soft) and the toilet paper was very very thin and rough. After staying at the Sea Crest for 2 nights at $140 per night (remember this is off-peak) we headed to the Borgata in AC which (believe it or not) was about $20 cheaper per night and very very luxurious. So either the Sea Crest is overpriced or they need to upgrade to give you better quality accommodations for the price they are charging.

Room Tip: Choose a corner room so people don't walk in front of your window and invade your privacy.
