My parents decided they wanted to go to Wildwood for a weekend a little after I came to the same realization. We had called to a few places, and then found availability at the Sea Chest. We'd never stayed below the boardwalk before, but wow, it's nice down there. We had four adults in a tiny, vintage room that reminded...

Wonderful motel, comfortable beds, GREAT pool, 2 blocks from a great beach. The location is perfect, quiet at night, nice and clean, nice owners. Couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. Very reasonably priced.

Planned a last minute vacation for a long weekend, needed something cost efficient and close to the beach. Great if you're just using it as a place to sleep and you plan on spending your time on the beach and Boardwalk. Very clean; a little outdated, but exactly what you'd expect from a less expensive motel. Management was very accommodating,...

Guests were clearly frustrated underage individuals. They miss understood the meaning between a "ROOM DEPOSIT and BALANCE" and "SECURITY DEPOSIT" These young immature guests decided to call the police themselves to dismay which did not help their case as to all paperwork and receipts were documented and shown to the officers. We have never had ONE incidence of a car...

My family has been visiting Wildwood for the last 25 years, and have stayed in a few different places. My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Sea Chest twice now, and we will definitely be back. It's conveniently located, clean, and affordable...what's not to like? See you again next year!

The sea chest motel was the best pick for us! Only 2 blocks from the beach, nice sized pool, affordable, and very clean! The owners John and Christina were very friendly and accommodating and take a lot of pride in their motel. It was a nice 3 day getaway and we will definitely be coming back!

Room was a reasonable price for the two nights that I stayed. Room was very clean, and although it doesn't have a flat screen tv the TV they offer gets the job done. Besides you come to wildwood crest to enjoy your days out. The bathroom was also very clean and very well stocked. Overall it was calm and I...
