... parking fine.
Movie Drive In - with authentic MONO speakers and popcorn with liquid butter. Ruth and James did camping.
Long dreary drive to Falmouth and then great cycle ride and home for a lovely sunset.
Off to Nantucket ...
What a fantastic day. Set off early - some borderline misery from the junior members- to drive to Provincetown on the northern most tip of Cape Cod. A trendy arty rainbows type of place. Our main aim to go whale watching on the Dolphin Fleet.
Got on the 1000 and did our customary Titanic shot and set off. The whole thing was done so well. The boat was not too crowded, the marine biologist on board did a brilliant show and tell about whales circulating a tooth with baleen ...
... island. The Gay Head Cliffs and lighthouse are at the far end of the island. The lighthouse is one of America's most endangered historic places due to the fact that the cliffs are eroding away beneath it. To save the lighthouse it needs to be moved further away from the cliff edge. The machinery required to do this needs a certain amount of space around the lighthouse and unless the necessary consents and agreements are obtained from congress, the local councils and the ...

Really nothing more exciting today except that Tom has relinquished the driving to me as he is better with maps. I needlessly inspired great confidence by mixing up accelerator and break but ok since then!
Dull day but needed down time.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Crest Beach Hotel Falmouth
A wonderful Cape Cod resort
A year ago on Labor Day week end my husband and I celebrated our 50th Anniversary at Sea Crest.
We had 39 family members with us. First night
we ate in the oceanfront dining room with good food
and a great sunset. Our celebration was in the ballroom the next night with plated dinner and
a fun one-man band. Our consultant was helpful
about recommending local businesses for flowers,
the one-man band and local bakery for special cake. We were all in the main bldg in the same
hall so that was special for visiting each other.
The day camp for the children was free so adults
could go off to golf. The beach was the best all
agreed, very user friendly for all ages. We love
the atmosphere there and will go back.
Do you like being awoken at 6:00 AM to the sounds of screaming children throwing temper tantrums in the next room? Or the lovely sounds of children running amuck through the hallways? Do you wish to be surrounded by mold growing in the bathroom, with broken tiles all around, and do you like to be surrounded by several breeds of insects? THEN THIS PLACE IS FOR YOU! We stayed at the Sea Crest on our honeymoon many (10) years ago, and returned for an anniversary stay. What a difference 10 years make - this place has gone to ruin! And forget about privacy and romance - if you don't have children, DON'T go here - you will not get any rest or relaxation. We had to move our room twice due to inconsiderate parents - dragging their kicking and screaming children while yelling at them down the hallways, slamming doors, etc. NOT a peaceful stay, to say the least. We moved our room to the more expensive side of the hotel, only to be awoken the next morning at 6:00 AM to yet more screaming and the sounds of "bouncing balls" against our wall. Our room was dirty - black mold all over the bathroom (fixtures, shower curtain) and the furniture was falling apart. Just awful. $600 is a lot of money to spend to be miserable, not to mention the ever prescence of assorted insects. The hallways were flooded by the rain, and the place reeked of mold. Disgusting.
My sister got married this past weekend at the Sea Crest. While there is nothing better than a beachfront room, it must be noted that the ocean front rooms are nothing more than super 8 "esque" accomodations with a great view of the water right in front of you. In essence, a 2 star motel made a 4 stars because of location.
Directly on Old Silver Beach... With small children who love to play at the beach, there is no better Cape Cod spot than the Sea Crest. Very helpful staff, newly-appointed oceanfront rooms, and great food! We highly recommend this Cape Cod classic!
We have been going to the Sea Crest for years now and we love it. We go to the Cape Cod every year, and we stay there every time. It has something for everyone from children to adults. We would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone going to the Cape.
Had guests visiting Cape Cod from Annapolis. Suggested they stay at Sea Crest, as it was close to my home.Drove by property. Visitors instantly fell in love with the hotel--especially its great location right on the beach.They decided to check in. Room was nicely furnished and had a wonderful view of Buzzards Bay from the sundeck.Friends were truly pleased with accommodations, courtesy of staff, delicious meals, entertainment in Surf Lounge and watching the sun set from the terrace. They liked Health Club also with large pool and exercise equipment.All in all, visitors had a memorable time and wanted everyone to know about the "treasure" they had discovered.Where else can you step out of your room and put your feet into white beach sand?Actually, my wife and I will also be dropping by the Sea Crest fairly often to take advantage of the great food, music and dancing! We, too, are happy to have learned about this "treasure."
Located directly on Old Silver Beach, the Seacrest Resort is a large hotel/motel in North Falmouth, Cape Cod MA. I write my review with mixed emotions, because I have been staying there each year for my entire life (22 years) so I have a bit of an attachment to it. While I do enjoy my stays, there are a number of problems I've experienced over the years. On the upside, the hotel does have a terrific location just off of Route 28, which connects directly to the interstate at the Bourne Rotary. It's also near to all major attractions, downtown, shopping, restaurants, medical centers, and other beaches. There is plenty of parking if you check in early enough, and the outdoor pool and beach is nice. They have a lovely gift shop and lobby, as well as two lounges and a long boardwalk. The front desk staff is friendly and usually very helpful. Now, on to the problems: one of my major qualms about this hotel is the cleanliness factor. Many of the rooms have a bit of a moldly, musty odor, and you can see staining and water damage in some of the rooms that have doors and are located in humid areas....such as near the pools. There are stains on the bedspreads, walls, and carpets in virtually every room I've been in. The bathroom floors and tubs also have a lot of stains, and there are no lids on the toilet seats nor fans to remove the humidity. The refridgerators are also dirty. Another issue is the insect population...since the rooms obviously lack a tight seal, the ones with doors (especially near the beach) house many varieties of spiders, ants, and roach-like critters.
Attended a conference at the Sea Crest in November of '03. The conference was superb. The hotel and conference center nickel and dimed you to death though, which I objected to.The room was clean, but blah--needs to be updated. There are some newer units, but they are in separate buildings and away from the main campus.The banquet foods were better than the main dining room fare, but the box lunches served to us at noon were nothing special. The banquet staff were exceptionally nice and service oriented. Can't say the same for the main dining room which is run separately. I let the maitre d' know that our table was NOT happy with the food AND the service. It was also on the pricey side.I would stay at the Sea Crest again as the location is wonderful and on the water with wonderful views, although I would try and stay in the newer buildings and eat elsewhere as there are quite a few fine restaurants all around. Many seemed to be open throughout the year.
