Sea Crest Beach Hotel

Cape Cod, New England

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.

First time in the cape. Loved it! The Seacrest? Not so much. The individual who checked us in was not at all inviting and provided very little info. We found our room very dirty. Mold in the bathroom and fixtures were old and falling apart (took me back to a fraternity house bathroom). I wish I had taken pictures of the bathroom to post here.… Read more
First time in the cape. Loved it! The Seacrest? Not so much. The individual who checked us in was not at all inviting and provided very little info. We found our room very dirty. Mold in the bathroom and fixtures were old and falling apart (took me back to a fraternity house bathroom). I wish I had taken pictures of the bathroom to post here. There was a chair in the room that had stains all over it, and the walls were dirty with paint falling off. Beach towels are first come first serve. If you don't get to the beach before 10...no towels. The servers who work the beach are very nice but there should probably five more. The food is ok, but not what we expected. Housekeeping never came to the room which I understand may be a covid thing, but maybe at least offer to change some towels of wash cloths. AGAIN....for the amount of money we put out, plus those hidden daily hotel use fees, the Seacrest is not even close to being worth the money. Read less
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Terrible. Room dirty. Bathroom unsafe and dirty. Food fair to poor. Clam chowder was cream of mushroom soup. 1 * beach

Room was not what we reserved. Reserved beach front walk out. Ended up on 2nd floor with steps only. Front desk didn’t care. 3 phone calls with rude staff. Room was dirty. Rug filthy. Bathroom dark small and unsafe. Tub so slippery could not stand in safely. No safety bars anywhere. Dirt and/or mold around bath tub. Toilet seat slipped every use.… Read more

Bathroom dark small and unsafe. Tub so slippery could not stand in safely. No safety bars anywhere. Dirt and/or mold around bath tub. Toilet seat slipped every use. Plus other bathroom issues. No ice bucket in room. No extra plastic bags to handle trash. You are your own maid here. I had to clean room. After disposal of trash I could see the basket was filthy. Air conditioning system is so loud one is awakened every 2 hours. Reds the restaurant had a very limited menu. Food was lousy. The clam chowder was like cream of mushroom soup with potatoes. Requested towels and received them 11 1/2 hours later. So overpriced. So sad our last days were spent in this place. Read less

This place looks stunning online, but be aware when you arrive. What you see is NOT what you get. I booked a room and informed the person I was booking with that I will be bringing a small dog. I was trying to check into my room and was told by the manager on duty that night that I was in the wrong area as the area I was in was not a dog… Read more
This place looks stunning online, but be aware when you arrive. What you see is NOT what you get. I booked a room and informed the person I was booking with that I will be bringing a small dog. I was trying to check into my room and was told by the manager on duty that night that I was in the wrong area as the area I was in was not a dog friendly room. I proceeded to tell him that this was the room given to me at check in and then accused me of lying. He was so unprofessional and made me so upset that we ended up checking out. We not only checked out because of the way the manager treated us, but also because the place was such a dump. Read less

This hotel has a lot of amenities , but be aware some of them are non existent during covid. No housekeeping services , which is a issue with your children and sand everywhere . Especially in the beds! you would think with a lot of things not available they would have lowered prices , but no it was actually going way up! Way over priced.. doors would not open , no trash cans. Asked for KIng got doubles , no more rooms I was told. ask for room to be vacuumed and they brought 2 vacuums for us to use ! Really at over 500..00 a nighty and a 40.00 resort fee ??? That was so ridiculous it was comical. Hire more people or lower your rates! Read less

This place is way overpriced and the rooms in building 4 need some serious work. Bathroom was so tiny and the tub had no drain and missing tiles. Floor was sandy and room dusty when we arrived which tells me it was not cleaned very well upon are arrival and smelled stale, The screen was broken and door to deck stuck.

This place is way overpriced and the rooms in building 4 need some serious work. Bathroom was so tiny and the tub had no drain and missing tiles. Floor was sandy and room dusty when we arrived which tells me it was not cleaned very well upon are arrival and smelled stale, The screen was broken and door to deck stuck. We called front desk to tell them and it was never taken care of. Front desk is horrible, issues when we checked in and then when we checked out. Terrible customer service by a women named Andrea!. The staff was wonderful, the folks that worked at the bar as well as the young folks that worked on the beach were all so friendly and helpful. They could have taught the front desk some manners. This was our second stay and this one was a huge dissapointment. For the cost for 3 nights I could have stayed at an all inclusive on a nice island.....sorry I didn't do that. Will not be back or recommend the Sea Crest to anyone that I know. Read less
