We stayed here for one night. It was perfect. Completely remodeled. Everything was brand new from the floors to the ceiling tiles in the bathroom. There are 2 flat screen tv's, a kitchenette, and a great view from our room. I would absolutely stay again!

Stayed here on a Sunday night, last minute birding trip, and the front desk was extremely accommodating and the price was right! Room was spotless, roomy and comfortable. Very pleased and will definitely come back the next time we go birding in Cape May.

The hotel staff were so welcoming and friendly when we arrived and eager to accommodate in any way. We loved the room with its view of the ocean from the huge front window and the bedroom windows that opened to and other view. The 2-room layout with 2 TV's and a door between was perfect with the kitchenette fully stocked... More

This was our first time staying at the Sea Crest and we had a great time. We were in one of the Royal Suites. The king size bed was very comfortable and there was more than enough space in the bedroom - plenty of closet and drawer space too. The bathroom was roomy and VERY clean. We loved that the... More

We come here every year in September and this time we were able to get a room on the 4th floor that faces the Lighthouse which is quite visible at night. You can sit on the balcony and listen to the waves rolling in and watch the Lighthouse. It's very quiet and peaceful at night. As I have said in... More

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
