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 now 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.

Sorry, I was very disappointed in the hotel. For $200/night I would have expected at least a continental breakfast and decent toiletries. The blower was so noisy, we had to call maintenance so we could sleep. We attended a wedding at a venue about 20 minutes away; however, the bride booked a block of rooms so we thought it would be nice to stay… Read more
Sorry, I was very disappointed in the hotel. For $200/night I would have expected at least a continental breakfast and decent toiletries. The blower was so noisy, we had to call maintenance so we could sleep. We attended a wedding at a venue about 20 minutes away; however, the bride booked a block of rooms so we thought it would be nice to stay with our friends. Our rooms were't even in the same corridor. and some were in a different building. Maybe if the weather was nicer I'd feel differently... Read less

Very nice. It's on an old model, but with good bones. Lots of upgrades on fixtures, bathroom etc. Amazingly clean with striking attention to detail in the housekeeping. We had a second floor king bed room in the main building. We'll go back.

Should be called sea crust and dread’s restaurant . Absolutely no hospitality. No bell man to be found, seriously understaffed, took all of the front desk staff to resolve another customers issues causing a major line for check in. The outside pool was open and accessible yet a manager came out after 15-20 minutes of use to inform our family with two young Children as well as another family that “we were trespassing and needed to get out of the pool” the manager then said the pool was not open for the season even though there were no signs or communication from staff. We gave him absolutely no problem we said we understood and jumped right out without a complaint so there was no need to treat us like criminals. There were no signs or communication that the pool was not open. A simple - hi folks sorry but the outside pool is not ready for use and an apology would of been the proper way to handle this. Greasy handprints were found in our room on multiple walls. The bed is uncomfortable and small. The room is good size but lacking in areas of cleanliness and keeping up to date. The updated rooms is basically what many in the construction trade would call a fluff and buff not a full renovation or up to par. Don’t walk from Red’s restaurant.... run. Took over 35 minutes to receive the two drinks we ordered with our meal. Our food came out before our drinks did. Other tables throughout the restaurant were clearly not satisfied with the experience. Al of the staff seem rather inexperienced and have no sense of hospitality. Another table was overcharged for wine and the staff struggled to resolve the issue in a timely and professional manner. When we asked about the issue with our drinks and the poor service the manager said he doesn’t control the bar. Clearly staff does not work together and as a team to keep service and experience high. The hot tub is one of the tiniest you will ever find in a hotel. It was very uncomfortable and barely fit 4 adults forget about the 8 maximum posted. When we returned back to the pool the second night there was a chain and lock on the outside pool doors. The issue with this is those doors are clearly marked as emergency exits thus they are breaking fire code by chaining a fire door. Surely the staff should know this. Very disappointed in our entire experience - the beach was nice but because of everything else I couldn’t recommend this place to anyone. They seem to care more about conferences and events than the actual hotel and experience. Read less

This is a comfortable motel at Old Silver Beach in Falmouth. It’s being renovated, which is good because it is a bit shop-worn. The restaurant is okay for breakfast, but pricey. Sunsets over Buzzards Bay are glorious. If you want to stay at the beach on Cape Cod, this is a good choice.

Renovation was well under way during a 3-day women's crafting getaway. Not too far into the Cape (by the "armpit") but with ample beach front ignore the renovation the conference area was well-lit. the conference buffet area seated us comfortably without overcrowding the hotel breakfast buffet was perhaps a bit pricey for the selection. however the beachfront views were spectacular. rooms were modern with a maritime theme (floors and walls) and a retro vibe of Cape Cod in the 1950s. amenities were the brand "Pure". dining choices were somewhat limited. one needs to drive 4-5 miles. one can take a leisurely walk along the beach. the cold Atlantic beaches come with a different charm I would return for sure off-season.
