“Great Pre-Christmas Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Everyone was nice and friendly from the minute we got there to the minute we checked out. The room was clean and nice and the view was fabulous! It wasn't crowded at this time of year so we pretty much had the pool, lazy river and hot tubs to ourselves most of the time. It was a great time to get away for awhile before Christmas and relax and to do some last minute Christmas shopping too. We had a great time and are already planning another trip for February and hope to stay at Sea Crest then too!

We stayed at Sea Crest in December. It was off season but still got a chance to enjoy the indoor pool and lazy river. The hotel was surprisingly closer to the beach than I anticipated. The stay was very enjoyable and overall, I can't think of any complaints.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved that the resort was oceanfront. It provided us with a great room with an awesome ocean view. We loved the full kitchen in our suite and had plenty of room for everyone in our party to relax, eat or take a nap. The beach access couldn't be better. We had three kids in our group that loved going in the ocean and then coming back to warm up in the hot tub. Even though we came in the fall there was plenty of fun to be had by all of us. The indoor pool and lazy river were clean and very popular with the kids staying at the resort. We will definently be back!

The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and well worth the money. We had the junior king suite with a jacuzzi. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location, not too much noise. The only thing I didn't care for was the limited parking at the hotel. There is a parking deck across the street, however. Will most definitely stay there again.

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.

I try to stay here every time i plan my vacation for the beach. Rooms are always clean and the service is on the spot. They will bend over backwards to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Very family oriented, and plenty of things for the kids to do! I definitely recommend this to all my friends and family! And i will always be a repeat costumer!

We went to SeaCrest for our 1st anniversary. Stayed in the oceanfront king eff. and the bed was firm, which we loved. However we had concerns, among them the loud, blaring music, not sure why it was on so much at this time of the year. The cover on the remote was missing, the towel rack on the left side is coming loose and in the kitchen there wasn't a pan to heat in, which we had to call for. Think it might be a good idea for staff to check rooms thoroughly before guests arrive. That way, the guest doesn't have to call or go down to retrieve or report. Saves time for everyone that way. Re: housekeeping,when we removed the bedspread, the next day when housekeeping had been there, the bed was made w/out the bedspread, which was strange. Not enough towels left by housekeeping, so had to go down for more. We did make use of the swimming pool, but due to the kid's behavior, which the parent just ignored, we exited earlier than had planned to. I realize they are kids and SeaCrest can't do anything about that. Other than the above concerns, we enjoyed our stay. The staff were all super-nice. For us, wish SeaCrest was located on NMB, due to most of what we did was at NMB, so required daily driving.
