Spot on

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: everything
Cons: nothing
Location: right next to the beach, short stroll to the village centre and shops. Fishing from the pier. Good restaurants and bars.
We were here for a friends wedding on the beach. The location was perfect, just off the main road, a short walk to supermarket and to the village centre, where you will find a variety of bars and restaurants and shops. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and with it being a small hotel it was always quiet by the pool. The pool and garden areas were immaculately maintained. and the free wifi worked right by the pool area too. Our friends visit Lauderdale By The Sea quiet often and when we return with them in the future we will be booking here again.

Family Event & Get Away

Posted Apr 8, 2014
We went to Fort Lauderdale from the Great White North to attend a family anniversary party, and were happy that we stayed at Hotel Seacrest. My wife and I traveled with our 2 small children (ages 2 & 5). We stayed in Room 2; it has a king size bed and two twin beds. The room itself is huge with a kitchenette, equipped with a fridge, microwave, toaster and a 2-burner cooktop, which were all convenient for our length of stay (3 nights). The room also has a large bathroom and a flatscreen TV. There were plenty of pool toys and floats for guests to use; both of my kids loved floating around in the pool. There are also lots of beach toys, umbrellas and chairs for use if desired. The beach is only a 2 minute walk, as are plenty of restaurants, a grocery store, and a CVS. Seacrest is centrally located in a beautifully walkable community; the beds are comfortable and the landscaping will make you feel like you're on a tropical island. Great place for families! Wolfgang was accommodating to all of our requests (ie, we needed to iron or clothes for our family event, and after coming back from a walk there was an iron and ironing board waiting in our room). Traveling with 2 young kids can sometimes be dicey, but the relaxed atmosphere of Hotel Seacrest kept everyone in our room calm! Would have loved to stay longer if time permitted

Can't wait to go back!

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: clean, comfortable, great location, nice pool, quiet
Cons: nothing!
Location: Beautiful beach and quiet area but with plenty of restaurants and things to do
We just returned from a 3-night babymoon at Hotel Seacrest and were very impressed! The room was spotless and very comfortable, the pool area was beautiful and quiet, the location was perfect - just a short walk to the main square, and Wolfgang was extremely helpful in recommending great restaurants and making sure we were enjoying our stay. We are already scheming to try and plan a trip back with our newest family member!

Good Location.

Posted Mar 19, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: Natural light.
Location: The beach is only 2 blocks away.
Hotel and amenities were ok and located very close to the beach. However, our room only had a very small window next to the bed and as a result the room felt quite claustrophobic. Took us some time to locate the office as well as the signage around the building was not correct. While the hotel was quaint, and "Lauderdale-By-The-Sea" was quite nice, the proximity to Fort Lauderdale causes unwanted issues. Within minutes of our arrival we were almost run over by a truck carrying three male teens who apparently thought the public beach access was an appropriate place to urinate. We usually vacation on Florida's west coast and in 20 years have never encountered anything similar.

2 blocks from the beach

Posted Mar 4, 2014
Great stay. Just a few rooms, but clean and very nice. Grocery and restaurants in walking distance, as is a park with tennis courts. Nice pool and bbq. Owner goes above and beyond. We had to extend our stay by 1 day due to a snow storm / canceled flight; unfortunately he had no vacancies but went out of his way to help us find a place to stay. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent stay on short notice.

Posted Feb 26, 2014
Pros: Great location, quiet, and a color changing light show for the in ground swimming pool.
My wife and I booked a trip that involved staying in many states and because of flight cancellations due to bad weather we needed to book one more night in Florida. The day before I was able to get the last room available at Hotel Seacrest with its location being a perfect walk to the strip for food and shops and also the ocean. We arrived many hours early of the check in period so I made a call to inform them of what happened. We arrived with all our bags and met Wolfgang the owner and he let us keep all of our luggage and personal belongings with him until our room was ready. He offered us beach towels for use of the in ground swimming pool or to take to the sandy beach. We arrived back at the Hotel many hours later ,after grabbing a bite to eat and hanging out by the water, to see that all of our belongings were placed in our room for us. Overall stay was great as we spent most of the time away with friends but the small details like this was even better to make us feel like we were a guest at someones home. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel close to ocean

Posted Feb 7, 2014
Clean, comfortable, recently and attractively rehabbed; minimalist like a modern European hotel. Friendly, attentive owner. In residential neighborhood with easy access to grocery, restaurants, and small shops. A couple blocks from ocean.
