This is a fabulous hotel with the sweetest and most knowledgeable owners. The rooms are fabulous and you could eat off the floors. A nice quiet pool area that I put to use almost every day. Looking forward to my return visit in May!

Having had a great time at the Seacrest last year, we decided to go back this year. It was like we had never been away. The hotel was as clean and comfortable as it was last year. The owners go out of there way to make your stay there really great. Another thing we like about the Seacrest, is the...

Great little hotel with a nice pool area and garden. Our room was very clean and well appointed. Watch out for the Mosquitos I got eaten alive in our room! It's a 10-15 minute walk to the restaurants and shops and 5 minutes to the supermarket. Our hosts met us and settled us in and gave us lots of information...

Hi Susan - Thank you for your review, we're sorry you got eaten alive in your room from mosquitoes, but that tends to happen when you leave the door open repeatedly, even after we ask you to keep it closed. I also explained to you in great detail during your check in and orientation why we need to keep the...

Clean and comfortable. Close to restaurants and gorgeous beach. Very safe and secure. The outside courtyard is what really makes this boutique hotel special. Beautiful pool and gardens feel very luxe.

Lauderdale by the Sea is a quaint beachside town (before you get to the condo-crazy Ft. Lauderdale)! We stopped here for a quick overnight stay and are so glad we found Hotel Seacrest. The owners were absolutely spot-on with their recommendations for dinner, breakfast, and things to do to fill our day. The beach is an easy walkable distance away...

Seacrest is a wonderful eight unit hotel that is owned by a couple who could not be more accommodating to the needs of their guests. The hotel has a great (heated) pool deck with plenty of space. The adults only rule make for a peaceful stay. The well maintained room where I stayed had plenty of space with a large...

Thank you, Trip Advisor reviewers for recommending Hotel Seacrest. We stayed for 3 nights and loved it. I feel like I went back in time. Small and quaint with an old Fort Lauderdale vibe. We will be back! Loved the fabulous beach chairs for guests to use.

Cheers Jet4040 - Appreciate the great feedback and nice visual, we agree with you, our town (Lauderdale-by-the-Sea) is one of the best kept secrets on the eastern seaboard of southern Florida. Those that have been around long enough equate it to what Key West was like 40 years ago, you know, when Buffett wrote all those songs - our beach...

We spent a week in December, 2016 in this amazing cozy place. It has the feel of a tropical paradise. The management is wonderful and ready to please you.

Hi redonthehead2015 - Always a pleasure to have you folks back with us.

Absolutely loved this place! Family-owned, clean, quiet, steps away from the beach, chairs and umbrellas provided. Huge room - I mean, my first studio in NY was smaller! Shops and restaurants all within walking distance, the atmosphere is so relaxed and absolutely perfect for a vacation. Thank you Mark and Maggie! Our definite go-to place for future vacations.
