Best place I ever stayed at!!! It is only 1 block from the best beach in the Wildwoods, 3 blocks from Sunset Lake, super clean room, and great prices. It is only 16 units on a large property so you have alot of space to sit by the pool, eat at one of several picnic tables, and cook on the...

We LOVE the Sea Chest Motel. Our family have been coming to the same place for over 30 years. The place is cozy, very clean and within close distance to the beach. The owners are very accommodating and take pride of their place. They are very friendly and love seeing their customers coming back. Our family would definitely highly recommend...

Our room was spotless when we first checked In and the cleaning ladies did an excellent job when we were out of the room. John is a very nice man and I would recommend this motel to anyone. It's steps away from the beach and is located in a good part of wildwood crest

Love The Sea Chest! Great little motel. No frills, but John and Christina take great pride in ownership. Our rooms have always been clean, as are common areas. The pool is immaculate. It's one block from the beach. The bang for your buck is great. We will continue to use this place for our Wildwood trips!

Best motel I have stayed at on the island! Not far walk from the amusements and boardwalk, but far enough away for the piece and quietness that Wildwood Crest can offer. Super close to the beach, so no need to worry about parking. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Definitely looking forward to coming back next year!!!

We stayed at the Sea Chest. It is a great hotel. The rooms are kept immaculate. My daughter has severe allergies. Her allergies did not bother her during her stay at the Sea Chest. The owners are kind and hard working. They cater to their guest's needs and are very pleasant. The hotel is close to the beach, boardwalk and...

We've been going to Sea Chest Motel for over 10 years, we love the place, clean, close to the beach, quiet and relaxing. When looking for clean and family oriented place, this is the right pick. The owners are great, we feel like home when we stay there.

this is an old 50's style hotel which is the charm of Wildwood (unfortunately these are quickly disapearing).This establishment is located one block from the ocean in the crest just a short drive from the boardwalk or a half hour walk so it is a lot quieter. It is quiet, clean and has a nice pool and a couple of...

Have stayed at the Sea Chest 3 times and have grown to love the place and its owners. They are the nicest people and work hard to keep the place meticulously clean and in good order. It's not fancy but you can't beat the rates and the location is perfect - a short drive to both Cape May and the...
