My husband and I live in northern NJ and were looking for a weekend getaway. I had heard many good things about Cape May but was turned off by the overwhelming amount of bed and breakfasts at $300+ per night. The Sea Crest Motor Inn was PERFECT. We just wanted a room. Nothing fancy. Didn't even care if we had...

Returning to the Sea Crest after a few years away, was like going back home again. The Inn is still beautifully maintained and the rooms are spotless. The updated kitchen area, bathroom and wood floors were a nice surprise. You just can't beat the location directly across from the beach, with the sound of the waves and beautiful ocean breeze...

We stayed in the Sea Crest autumn 2012 for 4 days with my family and loved this location. We got a room on the top floor with actual views of the Cap Point Lighthouse. The room was very spacious and ultra clean. While the decor may appear a bit out-of-fashion (it would not win a boutique hotel prize), but it...

We've been traveling to the Sea Crest on an annual basis for 17 years and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. We feel like we are family. The facilities are CLEAN and WELL MAINTAINED. It is located in a quiet part of town, across the street from the beach, but within easy walking distance from the activities of Cape May. The...

My husband and I stayed here for a short getaway. This hotel had everything we hoped for. We opted for the best view and it delivered! The innkeepers were very nice and accomodating. We especially liked how well the grounds were kept, the pool area and gardens were lovely!

My 82-year, old mother and 4 sisters spent a lovely weekend at the Sea Crest. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, and trust the TripAdvisor community to steer me in the right direction. They certainly did. Cleaner than clean, comfortable and an incredibly kind and helpful staff. From the outside it has the look of an old-time motel, but...

My husband and I stayed here for the first time after many trips to Cape May. We had a great experience. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our oceanfront room was clean and comfortable.
