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.

I am in the middle of a week long stay for the 4th of July and this place is fantastic. The beach has soft white sand and the water is warm for Cape Cod.

I went Father's day weekend for what I thought would be a relaxing weekend. I had anything but.

I went Father's day weekend for what I thought would be a relaxing weekend. I had anything but. To start there was no social distancing...most people were not wearing masks unless they were in the bar line. Then the staff required them. Went on the beach Saturday at 9am there were no beach towels available and limited beach chairs and umbrellas. The guests that were staying around my room were very loud and decided to set off fireworks at 10pm. The next morning when I went outside to the beach there was trash everywhere. Needless to say this was not a relaxing weekend. I informed the front desk Sunday morning of the problems that I had had and cancelled my last night there. I never recieved a phone call or email from the hotel manager about my stay. If I could give this experience a zero I would. Read less

Had a great weekend at the Sea crest. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet. The bathroom could use some TLC. The beach was perfect and staff was pleasant. The food and drinks were great, and typical hotel prices. Would definitely return. Hopefully pool will be open next time

My husband and I were supposed to go to Maui for our wedding anniversary, but COVID-19 made that impossible. At the last minute, we were in search of the perfect, (near by) resort to relax and celebrate our anniversary. We wanted a place that would make us forget all the craziness and stress in the world, and that’s exactly what we found at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel! I can’t say enough about this amazing property, but I will try. Firstly, I disagree with any review that found the hotel to be disorganized or unclean. This was not my experience. Every time I waked through the hallway I saw someone cleaning, and our room was very clean. The staff and the hotel were always friendly and helpful. Lauren at the front desk was especially helpful and kind, going above and beyond to make sure my husband and I enjoyed our stay! Secondly, the location of the resort is ideal!! The beach is, in a word...PERFECT. I’ve been to beaches all around the world from the Caribbean to the Amalfi Coast, and I will honestly say that the beach at the Sea Crest is one of the nicest beaches I’ve spent the day on. It was clean, and had more than enough chairs. Sitting on that beach, I didn’t feel like I was missing Maui...I felt like I was exactly where I wanted to be. Now to be honest, you should be aware that the hotel isn’t fully open just yet. If you are expecting everything to be the same as before Covid, you will be disappointed. The pool and restaurant are not open yet. There is a take out window available, with a basic menu. The pizza was pretty good, coffee and a muffin are just fine for breakfast. There are several restaurants very close by that offer out door dining or take out. You must wear a mask in public areas where people are around (lobby, bar), but we took ours off on the beach because we were 6 feet a away from others. Over all I’d give the Sea Crest a 10 out of 10. I plan to make this my regular “go to” spot for relaxation. If you need a getaway, give it a try!!! Read less

Gifted a stay for Father’s Day weekend. Family getaway. Jarring to see lack of preparedness. Understaffed, disorganized, lack of attention to social distancing- stay away until they get their act together. Completely irresponsible to book to full capacity.

Gifted a stay for Father’s Day weekend. Family getaway. Jarring to see lack of preparedness. Understaffed, disorganized, lack of attention to social distancing- stay away until they get their act together. Completely irresponsible to book to full capacity. Overflowing garbage on beach, absolutely no extra attention to cleaning, lines for chairs, check in lines for over an hour in closed space, people with no masks... Hallways littered with dirty towels, take out boxes. Do better. Will not return. Read less
