Travelers' Choice
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 daughter and I stay at the SEA CREST twice a year for the past 8 years. It is by far the cleanest friendliest and convenient place in Cape May. John the manager is so very helpful. We had to change our days due to my daughters nursing job and covid and he was patient while we had to change dates.

We had a suite with a separate bedroom and a full kitchen... Corner room... wrap around balcony... simply could not ask for more. Windows galore so lots of natural light. The owner was simply the nicest man! Everyone on staff was so pleasant and worked very hard! Fabulous location because it was not directly in the hustle of town but close enough to stroll to it. Beach access directly across the street. I think we have found our new "spot"!!!! Thank you Sea Crest Inn!

Great location, friendly staff, spacious updated room. I highly recommend this place! The heated pool and hot tub were great on the cold rainy Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is also steps from the beach and a short drive from Wildwoods boardwalk.

Dear Tripster, Thank you for the strong recommendation. A rainy weekend in Cape May is better than a rainy day anywhere else. Thanks for hanging through the worst of the weather and finding a silver lining in the hot tub. We look forward to your next visit.
