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.

Recently stayed as we were told hotel and amenities had been renovated and were fully functional. Arrived to a folding table in the hallway, paper and active construction in the hallways with no lobby. The "full service restaurant" was a to-go window with no alcohal due to lack of liquor license. Room had sand on the floors and did not appear renovated well, fireplace didn't work. Only plus was comfortable sleeper sofa and two mini fridges in the suite. While the staff was understanding and pool was open (nice the first day, ants all over the floor from lack of cleaning the second day) the hotel was clearly NOT ready to be open and should've delayed taking reservations. Extremely disappointed as location is great and previous stays were much better. Read less

I have stayed at the Sea Crest before and had a very positive experience. The location is great and the beach was immaculate. The restaurant had great food for the whole family and you can’t beat the amenities with both indoor/outdoor pools and pet friendly rooms. That being said, I was extremely disappointed to learn that this year they have implemented an off season “resort fee” that added $120 to my already $640 reservation. When I called, I was told it was for “bottles of water and towels for the beach”. I asked if it could be waived given that we would not be using this service during the second week of April and was advised it could not. Unfortunately we will not booking again as a result....

I did a lot of online research before I decided to book the Seacrest. I thought it would be a convenient location for a trip over to Martha's Vineyard and to bike the Shining Sea bike trail,etc. The day of our trip we received notification that check out has been moved back one hour until 5:00.

I did a lot of online research before I decided to book the Seacrest. I thought it would be a convenient location for a trip over to Martha's Vineyard and to bike the Shining Sea bike trail,etc. The day of our trip we received notification that check out has been moved back one hour until 5:00. Okay, no big deal. The clerk at reception was very pleasant. We stayed in room 416. When I booked the room I was that I would get the explore and stay package. I was also told that there would be a microwave provided in the room as well as a refrigerator. There was no microwave provided. I was planning to prepare some breakfast in the room so as to save cost and avoid any morning crowds at breakfast. Well that wasn't an issue since the restaurants were not open. The only food on the premises was from a little snack bar by the pool area. Where a breaffast sandwich was $9 I fully understand the need to be flexible during COVID, but the lack of amenities was not disclosed. It's very deceptive and misleading. Entering building 4, my first impression was not a good one. The cement stairs looked dirty and off putting. Our room had a crack and chipped paint on one of the walls. The faucet leaked and ran down the wall causing puddles on the bathroom floor. Yes, we found out by slipping on the wet floor. The toliet paper holder did not have a spring in it so it was not staying put. The issues with the leak was addressed, but when your paying close to between $300 and $400 a night you expect a higher standard. I expressed my disappointment to Kathy at front desk who said the manager would be in touch. Jonathan called and spoke to me.I appreciate the response, he said he would offer us a discount on our next stay. Maybe under normal circumstances Sea Crest would be okay, but definitely not worth the money. Stay elsewhere. PS. The geen carpet is hidious. Read less

What a disappointment to say the least! Not worth the money at all. First, everything was closed which I'm sure was conveniently not mentioned when I booked the reservation. Also, trying to get ahold of the front desk was impossible if you needed towels or toilet paper as there was no housekeeping services during our entire stay. The room was… Read more
What a disappointment to say the least! Not worth the money at all. First, everything was closed which I'm sure was conveniently not mentioned when I booked the reservation. Also, trying to get ahold of the front desk was impossible if you needed towels or toilet paper as there was no housekeeping services during our entire stay. The room was awful, the toilet ran all night, the shower drain was extremely slow so you had to take a quick shower otherwise the tub would overflow. Then crawled into bed to find dried blood on the comforter. Absolutely one of the worst places we've ever stayed. Such a waste of money and vacation time! Read less

Was hoping for the full package: A beautiful beach and a beautiful, clean room. I got one of the two. The issues weren't egregious, but enough to leave us disappointed. ~wifi issues with no resolve, couldn't get anyone on the phone to help ~there is no elevator to the 2nd floor (this would have been great to know beforehand as I was traveling… Read more
Was hoping for the full package: A beautiful beach and a beautiful, clean room. I got one of the two. The issues weren't egregious, but enough to leave us disappointed. ~wifi issues with no resolve, couldn't get anyone on the phone to help ~there is no elevator to the 2nd floor (this would have been great to know beforehand as I was traveling with an elderly parent and a lot of stuff) -the doors to the hotel were not secure, anyone could walk in. -there's an ice machine! But it doesn't dispense any ice. Maybe that explains why there was no ice bucket in the room. -the mini fridge wasn't plugged in and we didn't notice until everything became warm. -The floors were really dirty. I spilled a bottle of water and when I wiped it up the towel was black. Read less
