My wife and I chose the Sea Crest based on favourable comments from a family member who visited previously. Stayed in mid October for 8 mights. As we were sharing a room with a friend we opted for the northwest corner unit with one bedroom and a sitting/dining room with pull down murphy bed. Both rooms were separated in the middle with a kitchen and bathroom which was convenient for everyone. The room was clean and we had good housekeeping service daily. Of note is not to feed the small birds which seem accustomed to flying on the balcony's and venturing into the rooms if the patio doors are open looking for food. I found it interesting that there were no screen doors on any of the units. We really enjoyed the northeast view of the beach area and Atlantic Ocean. Our unit was just above the kids water park but being it was off season and it wasn't used.
Being we were on the 3rd floor we opted to utilize the stairwells, of which they are conveniently located, instead of the elevators. We appreciated the lobby staff permitting us to park in the main hotel parking lot oversize area being we had a hard shell rooftop carrier which may have not fit in the multi level parking building across the street. The hotel also offers 24 hour outdoor security which is a nice feature.
We used the main outdoor pool and lazy river which were cold to start but the hotel turned up the heaters at the request of another guest.
The front desk personnel were professional, personable and informative at check in. I was able to walk to the main beachfront of MB in about 20 minutes. There is a nice roadhouse style restaurant directly next door of the hotel with good food and reasonable prices. I could also walk to a few stores located 2 blocks west on King's Hwy (#17). The location is excellent to area activities and the airport is only a 10 minute drive which is convenient for picking up our friends who flew in.
Another couple who came with us stayed in a similar unit as ours next door and we all agreed Sea Crest is a wonderful hotel and was reasonably priced. We are already considering making one or two trips back here next year.
