The hotel is excellent. Great outdoor area, pool is fantastic!! The beach is great for walking and playing in the sand with the little ones. Would go back again!! Lots of places to eat and the kitchen in the room is fully stock for cooking except for the food, that's on you!

We have been staying here Dec thru Feb for the past 6 years and have always enjoyed our stay. The owners Maria & Andy and their staff are friendly and accommodating. The place is always clean and they do regular updates all the time. Would recommend staying here to anyone.

This place is the best on the beach. Maria is always updating her property and we never had had a problem in 11 years. She treats her motel like her own home. I highly recommend this motel to any on the beach including all the new ones.

I was at the Sea Chest this past New Year's weekend and was surprised to find new changes. They had added new carpets the last time I was here and now some new furniture and attractive wall paint. They still keep the place so clean. It's like coming home. The weather during this weekend was also perfect. Chilly to go...

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.
