Best motel I have stayed at on the island! Not far walk from the amusements and boardwalk, but far enough away for the piece and quietness that Wildwood Crest can offer. Super close to the beach, so no need to worry about parking. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Definitely looking forward to coming back next year!!!

We stayed at the Sea Chest. It is a great hotel. The rooms are kept immaculate. My daughter has severe allergies. Her allergies did not bother her during her stay at the Sea Chest. The owners are kind and hard working. They cater to their guest's needs and are very pleasant. The hotel is close to the beach, boardwalk and... More

We've been going to Sea Chest Motel for over 10 years, we love the place, clean, close to the beach, quiet and relaxing. When looking for clean and family oriented place, this is the right pick. The owners are great, we feel like home when we stay there.

this is an old 50's style hotel which is the charm of Wildwood (unfortunately these are quickly disapearing).This establishment is located one block from the ocean in the crest just a short drive from the boardwalk or a half hour walk so it is a lot quieter. It is quiet, clean and has a nice pool and a couple of... More

Have stayed at the Sea Chest 3 times and have grown to love the place and its owners. They are the nicest people and work hard to keep the place meticulously clean and in good order. It's not fancy but you can't beat the rates and the location is perfect - a short drive to both Cape May and the... More

My parents decided they wanted to go to Wildwood for a weekend a little after I came to the same realization. We had called to a few places, and then found availability at the Sea Chest. We'd never stayed below the boardwalk before, but wow, it's nice down there. We had four adults in a tiny, vintage room that reminded... More

Planned a last minute vacation for a long weekend, needed something cost efficient and close to the beach. Great if you're just using it as a place to sleep and you plan on spending your time on the beach and Boardwalk. Very clean; a little outdated, but exactly what you'd expect from a less expensive motel. Management was very accommodating,... More

Guests were clearly frustrated underage individuals. They miss understood the meaning between a "ROOM DEPOSIT and BALANCE" and "SECURITY DEPOSIT" These young immature guests decided to call the police themselves to dismay which did not help their case as to all paperwork and receipts were documented and shown to the officers. We have never had ONE incidence of a car... More
