The Sea Crest Inn is the perfect romantic Cape May getaway for couples. The Sea Crest is owned and operated by a local couple, and located in a quiet part of Cape May overlooking one of the largest beaches on the island. Close to the shopping area, fine restaurants and historical homes.With features like ocean front suites with fully equipped kitchens, the only out door whirlpool in Cape May and extra large balconies, why stay anywhere else? Close to restaurants, nightspots, fishing, tennis, golfing, swimming,biking shopping and just steps away from the beach, you haven't experienced the Jersey Shore until you've experienced Cape May at the Sea Crest Inn.

My family and I have been going to cape may for years. This visit we decided to try somewhere new, and were thrilled with the Seacrest inn. Our maid was Catalina, and our room was immaculate. From the moment we walked in, it smelled clean and no dirt or dust was to be seen. Even when we forgot to put out our door tag to clean our room, Catalina came in and replaced our towels, made our beds, and folded our blankets. There was a very nice kitchenette, and nice size bathroom. We even had a sitting area. We cannot wait to come back!

Hotel's Favorite
We were in Cape May this summer and once again stayed at the Sea Crest hotel, both our home away from home. Our stay was wonderful as usual. The rooms smell good and are nice and clean. The office and maintenance staff are always nice and helpful when we reach out. A special shout out to the manager John who truly cares about the hotel and its guests. He's fantastic and makes us feel appreciated. We enjoy relaxing by the pool and never find it too loud and crowded. We also love the location which is right across the street from the beach and close enough to walk to restaurants and shopping. It's also just a couple of blocks from the end where we get to see nice sunsets. We go back each year as we love it there and are already looking forward to our next visit.

My sister and I stayed at the Sea Crest for a weekend in October 2022 with our fitness group. What a wonderful hotel! Our room was spotless and very nice. The beds were comfortable too. The front office was so nice and welcoming. We felt very safe and loved having a refrigerator and coffee pot in the room. Would definitely stay there again.

We have been coming for years for our anniversary, after the crowds are gone. Quiet, clean, comfortable, within sight and sound of the ocean and walking distance to everything else. Amenable staff. A great place to be together. What more could we want?

This place is so spacious and immaculately clean!! Of all the beach motels I have stayed out this by far exceeds the rest. Owner is super nice and accommodating as well. Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Cape May. Can see the light house from the beach here as well.

Every stay at the Sea Crest Inn has been wonderful for us! Just returned from our third trip there this season, and enjoyed a comfortable, pleasant stay as always. The grounds are kept immaculate, as are the units we have stayed in, and the location can't be beat!! We walked everywhere, and having the elevator to our fourth floor suite was a huge help. The hot tub, pool and ultra-clean atmosphere add to the enjoyment, as well as the large screen TV's where we watched our winning Phillies! Thank you to John for helping us with our accommodations and for all of the staff who work hard to keep the Sea Crest so lovely!
