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...

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...

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...

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...

The place I normally stay in Cape May was booked, but Sea Crest had a room. This was a 'happy accident' as my mother would say. I loved every minute of my stay, and everything about my experience at Sea Crest Inn. First of all, the people at the front desk are so friendly, cheerful, helpful, and accommodating. They make...

I have been here at least a half dozen times over the years with my husband and we always enjoyed our stay. Sadly, my dear husband passed away nearly two years ago.
