My family got very lucky in finding space at the Sea Crest. We were coming to town for the Hamptons Marathon and with that event -along with a triathlon taking place in Montauk the same day- the already limited hotel choices from East Hampton to Montauk were fully booked 2 months in advance. I found an available room for my... More

Just returned from Amagansett and four days at the ocean. Have stayed at Sea Crest for the past six years and always enjoy our time there. They have a swimming pool and tennis courts but the Atlantic Ocean is the best. We always get a second floor room facing the ocean and we are never disappointed and this year every... More

This summer was the 12th year in a row that we have gone to the Sea Crest for a weeks vacation with the family. It has a special place in our hearts as it's been the place for so many great memories for all of us. We always stay in the one bedroom suites facing the pool. We had thought... More

The location is simply unbeatable. Renting a house in the Hamptons is nice but being right on the beach with SeaCrest is not only convenient but more affordable. Add in the fact that you are provided beach valet service with towels, loungers/chairs, and full sized umbrellas and it's no contest. No more trying to find parking or lugging chairs and... More

As our first time in Hamtons we are no experts but we had a great first impression. The hotel is nice with a nice walk down to the beach and great chairs staff that accommodate you with towels and umbrellas. The pool was fine heated but it was closed, we just stayed at the beach which was amazing. The room... More

Like a previous reviewer my family and I have been coming to the Sea Crest each summer for many years. The pool and beach are still great. We love the included beach chair, umbrella, and towel service. The accommodations could use updating, but are clean and well serviced by housekeeping. Like a previous reviewer we were also bothered by the... More

So first the good stuff. You are steps to the beach and many of the rooms have ocean views. The beach is clean and private and included is beach service providing chairs and towels. You are also 20 minutes away from many great restaurants in both directions - either Montauk or Amagansett / East Hampton. And my personal favorite -... More

My wife and I have come to Seacrest for 16 years for the unbelievable beach and perfect location between Montauk and Amagansett. We are happy to to say that our children learned to swim in the pool, and later to ride the waves here. Traditionally the Seacrest has patrons that range from young couples with children to older adults, all... More

It isn't easy to book a beachfront hotel room on the East End of Long Island in midsummer, but we felt fortunate to reserve a room at the Sea Crest. The location and beach are superb, and the addition of a freshwater pool and tennis courts are added pluses. As for the rooms, they are certainly adequate: balconies that offer... More

We booked with no notice, have never been to Montauk and had relatively low expectations bc of last minute find. This place was a great find for what we spent. The beds were comfortable, shower clean, lovely balcony and the grounds were nice and clean. They have some great guys working the beach who will set up chairs and umbrellas... More
