“One of the top motels on the shore Hands down.”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

The owner John was very friendly and attentive during our stay. Clean rooms(& bathroom), great beds, Wifi, full size fridge & freezer, even a microwave in my room! I'll certainly be coming back! The pool was also nice & clean, there are great full size gas grills by the pool, I mean we ended up chilling mostly on our balcony. They had nice picnic tables with umbrellas and comfortable lounge chairs to sun in. Plenty of ice too!!

I recently vacationed in South New Jersey and brought my family to the Sea Chest Motel in the (dry) town of Wildwood Crest. The family-owned business with small style apartment-type rooms gives you a welcoming feeling from arrival through your exodus. They made me feel very welcomed and I even picked up a few words of Polish during my family's vacation. I will definitely be staying there again in the future, possibly again at the end of this year's summer season. Here's hoping each return visit is as enjoyable as the first!

Just returned from 3 nights at the Sea Chest Motel in Wild wood Crest, NJ. The hotel is whistle clean and the staff is extremely accommodating. The management kept the pool open later so the kids could swim when we returned from the beach. There are 3 grills and picnic tables to accommodate feeding the kids. There are refrigerator/freezers in every room. The price is very good for what you get. The trolly picks you up right at the corner and takes you to the boardwalk so there is no need to drive down and pay to park. We would definitely stay here again.

Close to the beach, clean (smells lovely, by the way), wonderful staff--the Sea Chest Motel is the reason we come to Wildwood Crest. The pool is large and clean with lots of chairs for lounging. Sea Chest is the Best!

SeaChest-Wildwood, Manager at Sea Chest Motel, responded to this review, May 19, 2013
We would like to respond to this inaccurate review. First, our establishment does not have any hallways (see pics). Our rooms are one of the cleanliest in all of Wildwood and we pride ourselves on our cleanliness. We have a incredible amount of satisfied repeat guests that come to our establishment time and time again for the last 24 years since we started operating this motel in 1989. Now, our office is small (agreed), but so is our motel. We have 16 rooms.

This reviewer is clearly unhappy, probably due to a price, and with having ONLY 1 review under their belt, that being ours, it does not add to their credibility. I would encourage those looking to stay at our motel to see for themselves what a wonderful place we have.

Thank You

My husband, daughter and I just got back from Wildwood Crest, we stayed at the Sea Chest. And once again we did not want to leave, we even extended our trip an extra night, making our stay 7 nights. My family has been vacationing at the Sea Chest for over 15 years now and there are many reasons we keep coming back, and even bringing with us new friends over the years. Firstly, the owners are very sincere, caring people and extremely welcoming they make you feel as though you are part of their Wildwood Crest family. The Sea Chest is a very quiet cozy place. It is very clean and you can see the owners take pride in every aspect of the place. The pool is very large and clean. The rooms have all you need, they have been recently updated and have nice new floors and light fixtures. They have gas grills for our use which was so nice, you don't have to go out to each each night which is especially difficult with little ones. The free coffee in the morning is a real treat. It is only a short 2 blocks from the beach. We are going back to Wildwood Crest next year and would not think of staying anywhere else but the Sea Chest our "Little Home Away from Home."--Basia
