Spacious room was clean and comfortable. It was a little damp and musty but that is what most seaside rooms are like. Just keep the AC on. The staff were very nice, easy-going and welcoming. Crowd was mostly over 60 year olds mid-Sept.

The Sea Crest Inn has been our September getaway spot for the past 24 years and has never failed to please. The staff is helpful, rooms updated and clean, pool refreshing and hot tub inviting. The location convenient but quiet and the view of the beach beautiful.

We stayed here last year & moved up one floor, and loved the view. This is an 18yr. old and up location so it is nice and restful. Wonderful saltwater pool & hot tub. There are full kitchens in some rooms. Free Wi-Fi, but I have to say we had some issues with connectivity. Normally I wouldn't mind, but the... More

This very very clean, no pretense, casual laid back strip motel has the most customer friendly staff I have dealt with. Not one or two folks but all of them, including housekeeping and grounds understand the word hospitality. We made our reservations very last minute(on a Thursday for a Sunday-Thursday stay the following pre-Labor Day weekend. When we called they... More

Sea Crest Inn is located near the end of the strip right across the street from beach. The atmosphere was very laid back and low-key. All restaurants, shops, malls, are within 5-15 minute walk. The room was neat and clean. Small dorm room type refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, blow dryer......."no iron". Staff very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a two room superior luxury suite. It was very clean and spacious with a microwave, stove top, refrigerator, pots, pans, and utensils with dish washing soap and a sponge. The bed was pretty stiff but it didn't bother us too much. The view of the ocean and pool was awesome. Staff were very nice. Pool and hot... More

Clean, comfortable, very welcoming and so close to everything. We booked at the last minute and are so glad we did. Plenty of space, good bed, clean bathroom, nice little kitchette. Cross the street and are you on the beach. Come back for a dip in the pool and/or the jacuzzi. Watch the waves from your balcony or walk one... More

Visited Cape May for the first time and literally stumbled across this very nice beachfront hotel. Due to recent Hurricane Hermine, there were a lot of vacancies in this otherwise busy Labor Day weekend. As a result, I got a greatly discounted rate on the room. The Sea Crest Inn is an oceanfront hotel; with immediate access to the boardwalk... More
