Editor’s Review of Sea Crest Beach Hotel

Old Silver Beach, home of the Sea Crest Beach Hotel, has a history that extends back to 1929, when a summer theater first operated on the property. Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart were two notable names that performed on these shores in a time when the theater was a summer hotspot worthy of Broadway fanfare. After being destroyed by a fire in 1936, the property was transformed into a popular hotel and dinner theater by Lou Walters, father of famous American journalist and writer Barbara Walters. During World War II, the hotel was converted into housing for the neighboring Camp Edwards military base, but became a summer hotel again after the war.

The Sea Crest Beach Hotel began its operations as a family vacation destination in
... more 1962, when Boston Celtic president "Red" Auerbach and friends purchased the property. They converted it into a year-round resort in 1971. Recently, the hotel received a full renovation to the tune of more than $15 million! Today, the 263-room resort is a secluded and still-family-friendly destination on West Falmouth's Buzzards Bay. Two saline pools, one indoor and one outdoor, lead the path to Old Silver Beach, where rows of orange-and-white striped umbrellas and white chairs face toward the setting sun. Onsite dining, seasonal activities for kids and nautically themed rooms serve as the ultimate in family vacation relaxation.

After receiving a massive multi-million dollar renovation, Sea Crest looks like a modern and upscale beach resort. Formerly a motel, the remnant motel look remains, with first-, second- and some third-story rooms located in wings with walk-out decks or porches and interior front-door corridors.

Each guestroom features a flat-screen TV, mini-fridge and a writing desk. Sofa beds and sitting areas are available in some rooms. Room types include Standard Rooms with king or double beds that sleep up to four; Sundeck Rooms and Oceanfront Rooms with either balconies or patios; Fireplace Rooms, which only come with a king bed and sofa bed to sleep four; and Oceanview Rooms.

Madcap and Hot Foot rooms are furthest from the beach and the views. Some rooms overlook the parking lot and grounds, so be sure to ask if you want to see the bay. The outdoor pool area can be quite loud during peak season; if that is a problem, avoid Arabella rooms. Then again, request a walkout Arabella room if you'd like to watch the kids in the pool from the patio.
