Sea Crest Beach Hotel

Cape Cod, New England

Virgin rating

The hotel

Just minutes over the Bourne or Sagamore bridges is the Sea Crest Beach Hotel – an old favourite that has just undergone a multi-million dollar renovation. The same great service is still available and the friendly atmosphere, but there’s plenty that’s even better than before. What will never change is the location – overlooking Old Silver Beach, an endless stretch of golden shoreline that really is nothing short of sublime. What have changed are the guest rooms – all have been sumptuously refurnished in soothing colours to bring you the utmost in comfort. The Ocean View Dining Room more than matches the beauty of its vista and Red’s Restaurant and Lounge, named after previous hotel owner and Celtic’s legend, Red Auerbach, is one of the hip and happening places to spend your evening. Just opened is the Ice-Cream shop – sure to prove popular with just about everyone or head to the pool bar and get the barman to whisk you up a refreshing cocktail. A wonderful place to feel big city stress just melt away, there’s plenty to see and do in the nearby area too. There are various golf courses or make like the locals and explore by bike.

The resort has a bad odor, carpets stained and dirty appearance. No decent drink or food options and the prices were about $17 for one mixed drink.

This place needs a thorough deep clean. The hallways were filthy, some sheets/pillowcases dirty, and walls, etc. desperately needing a new coat of paint.

Needs to update hotel, new beds, pillows, cleaning of cobwebs, and provide more quality food choices. The location is beautiful as it is right on the beach.

My husband and I had our hotel room block at the Seacrest Memorial Day Weekend 2024. The hotel just finished up renovations and everything looked amazing. Highlights: Bartender ANNIE! She is clearly the most seasoned and was on point all weekend. All of our guests were loving her out by the pool/beach. She’s an absolute rockstar and took amazing care of our guests. Annie is your go to girl. Wedding block wise: - Lauren from the sales department was great. She was always responsive to my emails and calls. - Keep in mind that check in is at 4. The staff did great at providing early check in as they could but this may change your mind when determining your wedding ceremony start time. - Despite being told not to worry about room availability; I will say I had to check my block weekly to make sure there were both still king and double rooms available for guests to book. There was even a point when there were no rooms available to book on my block (this happened twice, and the other times there were only doubles or only kings available) and naturally my invitations had just gone out. Lauren was helpful in the sense where she kept adding rooms and changing guests reservations who booked outside of the block because of this issue after I contacted her. - Surprise Additional fee: Welcome bags! This is typically a free of charge service with most wedding blocks industry wide considering the business you’re bringing in and the ease of turning around and picking up a bag and handing to guests with their key card. Occasionally there will be a small fee for room delivery but here at the Seacrest it was for both, upon check in or room delivery. This was unfortunately not stated in the contract I signed and I was told about this fee the weekend of my wedding as I was arranging the bags drop off. In the grand scheme of things in the wedding world, the fee was small, but I did not like the “surprise” fee and felt it was a little sleazy considering we had over 55 rooms booked and they all paid hotel resort fees. The response I received was that “hotel amenities may inquire additional fees”…. This is still quite confusing to me that welcome bags purchased and put together by myself would be considered the hotels amenity but just be aware of this. Overall: Good experience and would recommend using this hotel for your wedding block. Monitor your block and cross all your T’s and dot your i’s! We’re excited to return next summer for our anniversary and can’t wait to see Annie for some summer cocktails by the pool! Read less
