A/C didn't work in the room. They said to turn off the lights. Causing heat. I have too many lights on.. The A/C guy on vacation, can't fix the problem. Sweat-house conditions, and people cranking music by the pool. Nothing done.

This is an older motel right on the beach. Prices are lower as well so it is a great value for the 5 star location. We are not in rooms much since we were at pool or on the beach. Very friendly staff and very clean. Our room had small kitchen so we could fix some meals.

I was just back at the Sea Chest for this past weekend and found out the owners had replaced the carpets in all the rooms !!! What a difference. The rooms even seemed to smell fresher! This is the cleanest motel I've ever been in and now it's that much nicer. I had a wonder ful time.

We have stayed here before with no problems, but this time was different. Parking is always problematic. There are 23 rooms and 23 parking places, so there should always be at least one open parking spot, that is not always true. The Hotel does not have 24 hour front desk. We discovered this when a loud party kept us up... More
