    Location and beach access were great. Fun surf spot right below the hotel. Less than a mile from the pier with restaurants and other activity. Unfortunately, because of Covid hot tubs were closed. Bed and pillows were not comfortable. TV didn't work, but I'm sure staff would have fixed it had we asked.

    The view from our room made this hotel worth every penny! We ended up extending our stay an extra night because we didn't want to leave. We stayed in the signature deluxe rooms, so we had a  private balcony with a 180 degree view of the Pismo pier and the cliffs near Shell Beach. The rooms are nice, recently renovated, and generally clean. There are no maid services during your stay due to COVID. They provide an extra trash bag for food, etc, and you text the front desk to have it picked up when it's full. Amenities for the hotel were good. Keurig in the room was a highlight for my husband. Pool was warm and they limited the number of people allowed in the pool area. Breakfast was grab and go and included cereal, pastries and fruits. We opted to go into town to get fresh cinnamon rolls from the Old West Cinnamon Roll Co (highly recommend). Fire pits were a bit too crowded for my taste, so we spent the majority of our time on the balcony. Only complaint was staff was a bit unprofessional and unhelpful when trying to extend our stay. Otherwise, highly recommend this hotel! We will visit again!

    Great views of the ocean and beautiful patios. Rooms, hallways, and elevators are a bit out dated... marketing looks to be the only thing that has been updated, so I felt like we had higher expectations and were disappointed when we arrived.

    Breakfast (due to COVID restrictions) is very sad: everything is individually wrapped in plastic. Looks a lot like airplane food purchased in mass quantities. Coffee is terrible. I often saw staff not wearing masks sometimes.

    Grateful that they are dog friendly, that was a plus.

    It’s nice but they are charging too much. The view is worth the price maybe but not the amenities, food and interior environment.

  • Nov 08, 2020 by Chelsea Correa

    Great views and clean grounds. They take infection control seriously and the rooms were clean, modern and fresh. They serve breakfast if you want it, all individually wrapped and limited number of people. They allow dogs in some of their rooms which is a bonus. There is access to the beach and they have a pool with plenty of seating to enjoy the ocean breeze and sounds.

    I stayed here with my family during Halloween 2020, and we all had a fantastic time. We were looking for an outdoor type area to celebrate our Anniversary and Halloween.  A friend recommended the SeaCrest Hotel.  Such a great recommendation. The resort is about a 10 minute walk to Pismo Beach city center.  Directly in front of the resort is the Restaurant Willow.  We ate there a couple of times and the food was really good.  Also a 6 minute walk north of the resort is the Ventana Grill, which overs patio dining overlooking the ocean, another really good restaurant. I have two kids that are doing on-line schooling, so I needed a late checkout so they could finish their classes.  When I made the reservation, I spoke with one of the Managers Christina.  She was awesome, she found a way to accommodate all of our needs. We booked the family suite.  Large suite with a king bed in the main room, and another room with two beds and a TV.  Plenty of drawer and closet space.  The room was very clean and well maintained.  The large patio was directly in front of the resort grounds and pool, and looked onto the ocean.  We saw some of the best sunsets there. Each morning they offer a light continental breakfast, with enough options to get you started in the morning.  They also have lawn games and board games you can check out and bikes you can rent.  There is a large pool (Open) and several jacuzzi's (Covid closed).  There are also several fire-pit tables all around the resort. The resort also offers direct beach access via some stairs. This is our first time visiting Pismo Beach, and we are already looking to our next visit and to staying at the SeaCrest Resort.

    Had a real nice time. Spent 2 nights, woke up to ocean view. I felt safe with the hotels safety guide lines for Covid. Continental breakfast was good with safety guidelines followed. Plenty of space to sit safely away from others. Great time.

  • Oct 31, 2020 by Shawna B.

    No hot water. They set their temperature to lukewarm water. We asked if we could check in early. So they checked us in and asked for an extra $30.00. Why? If the rooms are available, why not just do a nice thing? Ridiculously overpriced. The front desk girls were amazing but the only thing you are getting for $400-500 a night  is the ocean in front of you. Go somewhere that doesn't nickel and dime you and actually has hot water. The maintenance people said the temperature was 102. It was barely warm. Ugh.

  • Oct 27, 2020 by Sara Y.

    First impression was not great.  The check in person Hailey was not too friendly or welcoming.  The first room she gave us was a room right next to the breakfast area, fire pit, parking lot and a bike rack.  Why did she give that room to us when there are other rooms available?!! I don't know but I cannot help to think it might be the color of my skin.  That room should be your last resort for people who did not pay extra for a king sized ocean view room.  I called when I got to the room and asked if they had another room.  The lady on the phone told us to come down and gave us keys to another room right away.  We checked in on a Sunday so plenty of other rooms were available.  That was also not how we want to spend our birthday trip.  The new room was upstairs and better located but a little smelly.  The glass wall on the balcony was full of hand prints and fingerprints from other people and their children.  I wish they had more precautions with masks and cleanliness.  People were not wearing masks or social distancing but only required to do so in the lobby.  It is a state law but the hotel staff said that it was not necessary other than the lobby area.  People were everywhere with no masks on.  Only people wearing masks were from the bay area.  The housekeeping and breakfast staff were so nice , friendly and helpful!  These are the people who truly shine during our stay.

    If any one is looking for bargain deals for hotel rooms check out ʜᴏᴛᴇʟʙᴜʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏᴍ reserved a hotel on there and they had the best prices any where!

    The view is fantastic. Giving all the circumstances created by covid id say they are doing a great job here. Beach access is pretty good.....lots of stairs.....the staff is very nice and helpful

  • Oct 25, 2020 by Sita A.

    This is the only hotel we stay at when we visit Pismo beach! We absolutely love everything about it. We have been coming here for the last 3 years and are always impressed each time!! I LOVE how family friendly this hotel is! We also have access to the beach which is amazing!!!

  • Oct 23, 2020 by Peter L.

    It's not a 5-star resort but still earned our highest accreditation.  The facility in general was well kept and well laid out, rooms were contemporary and comfy.  It's convenient yet far enough from Pismo downtown to offer some measure of peace. Unlike some other places this hotel has direct access to the beach, you walk down 2 flights of stairs and vola, Atlantic Ocean (or was it the Pacific?) is right at your feet.  There are literally miles of gorgeous beaches on either direction, you can see the pier at downtown which is about 15 min walk.  In the back of the hotel facing the ocean is the common area, there are swimming pool, multiple dining and lounge areas equiped with fire pits and outdoor heaters.  On the top floor of the hotel there is an outdoor bar with comfy lounge sofas, from here you will have a breathtaking view of the ocean and the pier. Our room was quite spacious, well-lit and very pleasant to the eyes.  Bathroom was not furnished with the highest quality materials but was relatively new and well kept.  We got a regular king room without ocean view.  We speculate that many of the ocean view rooms only offer a glimpse of the ocean, unless it's on the upper floors.  Also rooms with porch at the back lacked privacy, as you are literally facing the pool and the court yard where peeps are lounging and eating, not to mention the other 50 guests who are also sitting in their respective porch, in plain sight of each other. There was grab and go breakfast bags, but we opted to drive to downtown Pismo which is 5 min away and sampled local BF.  The pier was closed for construction, downtown was quiet due to Covid.  Infront of the hotel there was also a restaurant/sports bar (Willow Pismo) that served basic items as well as adult beverage to go.  Its french fries was amazing (see photo), even though I generally hate fries. Overall this seems like a well kept and well run hotel, we liked the rooms and amenities, and especially the easy beach access.  Will def be back.

  • Oct 23, 2020 by Deron R.

    This is a beautifully located hotel right in pismo beach on a bluff overlooking the main beach with quite steep steps down to the ocean.  Watch your step!  the weekend we were there it was quite crowded in fact it was sold out with hot and cold running kids.  However it's a beautiful location, close proximity to the beach, the rooms are pretty standard but the front desk was very helpful and nice.  Next time we'll go when it's not too busy.

  • Oct 21, 2020 by Denz M.

    The place is amazing! 24hr access to the beach with a beautiful view Of the whole beach from the front. 6 mile hike up in the mountain with breathtaking view. From your hotel beach you can walk to the pier where all the stores & restaurants  are located. Although, most  beach activities are closed due to COVID-19 such as atvs & horseback riding.  When you're at the beach by sundown..oh man! Sunset is so beautiful! Trust me! Takes all your stress away. A Highly recommended must visit spot for any occasions. Visit & you'll see!

  • Oct 20, 2020 by T J.

    This  hotel is nice and  has  a pretty outdoor area. Here is the reason we took two stars-The clientele! The others staying at this hotel take over the outdoor fire pit and grass areas with large groups hauling coolers, store bought 2 liter soda's & chips and homemade food in containers. I swear there was a rice cooker! They sit there the entire day talking loudly, and acting like it's a family back yard. It's uncomfortable walking by, let alone enjoying the outdoor space. To be honest, before we stayed here, I noticed this same type of thing going on when I walked by on the hiking path, but figured it was just an isolated incident, boy was I wrong. I go to the coast for peace and quiet and I am very respectful about sharing spaces and letting everyone enjoy the property. This just isn't for me

  • Oct 18, 2020 by Brazil S.

    Literally the best trip we've been on thus far and we have to say the room is what did it !! We kept the sliding door open our ENTIRE stay!! It was so relaxing and calming hearing the waves crash (especially during the night). We even spotted a pod of dolphins from our balcony! Perfect for a quick getaway with the kids, or your significant other, because we can all use a break right now lol. Staff were really nice and hotel grounds were extremely well kept. We weren't able to get fresh towels, or have our room cleaned daily but it's definitely understandable due to Covid, and the hotels attempt to minimize interactions. Overall this trip was amazing, it exceeded our expectations and we will DEFINITELY be back !!

  • Oct 17, 2020 by Chris V.

    We were looking for a small getaway before the holiday season and chose to stay at SeaCrest during the week before the weekend crowds. The hotel seemed pretty busy with families and couples even in the middle of the week. The check in process was easy and our room views were stunning. The mask rules were followed throughout the hotel and social distancing standing markers were in place for the breakfast room and for if a line were to form at the check-in desk. However there didn't seem to be much social distancing of the patio seating near the breakfast room. No problem for us as we took our food back to our room and ate on our patio. The room was updated, and mostly clean, although there was a few hairs and the glass wall on the patio was dirty. The room includes a microwave, mini fridge and safe, which was nice. The hotel has beach access to Pismo's main beach so you can walk to all the restaurants and pier or make a very short drive. Overall we had a nice stay and would stay there again the future.

  • Oct 12, 2020 by Jackie L.

    I loved the accommodations here, perfect location on the ocean. A short walk to most of the popular restaurants in Pismo. The rooms were clean, and modern. Good lighting in the bathroom, which helped while I was getting ready for a wedding. They offer a complimentary breakfast, which always comes in handy. This room had a small patio which I liked, a small fridge, and microwave all came in handy for my 3 night stay. I would def recommend staying here!

  • Oct 10, 2020 by April H.

    This is our second time here this year and its such an amazing place.  The customer service is amazing!  This time we had Joey as our contact and he was amazing.  He made sure we were good and taken care of.  This trip we celebrated our 15th anniversary and we couldn't have asked for a better place. We will be back for sure!

  • Oct 09, 2020 by David Keller

    I haven't stayed at SeaCrest personally but family have. And they loved the experience. My wife Amanda works at the front desk. I know how much she and her coworkers do to make anyone's stay as comfortable as possible.

  • Oct 09, 2020 by Elizabeth J.

    Was clean and nice!  They do not have wine and cookies to greet you so don't be upset like one person was upon entering.  They did a show on Wed night with a musician and it was great music but they didn't serve anything so bring your own snacks and drinks or you will be sorry.   The room was clean and they don't offer room service so brace yourself if you want all the extras in a COVID world you won't get it. Great beach access and nice grounds.

  • Oct 08, 2020 by matt mitchell

    Great location with direct beach access. Staff were all great and wore their masks. The room was very clean and fully functional. Our room was recently updated along with new windows to keep the noise out. The entry door to the room could use a better seal, you can hear everyone talking outside of your room in the hallway. Plenty of parking. I'd definitely stay here again.

  • Sep 29, 2020 by ELIZABETH MORELOS

    The jewel of Pismo. This place is perfect for a date out with your significant other, or a family trip. It's pet friendly and every one who works here is super chill. They make you feel like home here. I love the staff here! The location is the best on the coast. The corner suite is the one you'll want! With a beautiful view of the coast and the peer, you'll want to keep coming back. They have a full on breakfast with eggs, pancakes, and sausage. Coffee, and fresh baked cookies are available 24/7. All new renovations! fire pits to have lunch, and beautiful bbq pits to have dinner with the fam! Trust me, I've tried most of the hotels on this coast, and you get the most out of the SEA CREST!

  • Sep 11, 2020 by Steven Beasley

    Nice rooms but horrible water pressure make a shower less then refreshing

  • Sep 07, 2020 by Kim Park

    My friend and I stayed for 2 nights. The room we got was on 2nd floor right by the elevator and entrance. Human traffic was constant from early in the morning till way passed midnight. We paid over $1000 for 2 nights and was certainly not worth that much. Too noisy and as for housekeeping we constantly had to ask for towels, and other items. Definitely not worth $500 a night.

  • Sep 06, 2020 by Mike K

    Beautiful... WOW... Great for the family staff was very friendly.... definitely recommend this place...

  • Sep 02, 2020 by Sparkly Spaceship

    Great location between some of the popular beaches. Midweek is prime time to go. It is so mellow and chill. Great vibe. Staff front of the house and back of the house always checking to make sure that you have everything you need. Loved the wine Wednesday and the music outside from the live musicians. The musicians from the week of August 20th were fab. another thing that I loved is that each level had a vending machine and each building as well drinks and snacks which is where to find at hotels now. It saves a trip from going back and forth to the lobby to the little market places that are so popular now. I love the old-fashioned vending machine convenience down the hall. They had a good variety of snacks and drinks. Not just junk. Gas stations and supermarkets and sundries were all within a 5-minute drive. Lots of activities from the sand dunes to little tide pools. The rooms are well appointed with a coffee machine and a microwave and a fridge. A little bigger than most standard hotel rooms where you can stretch out. A balcony with flower locking screen locking glass door and pretty shutters. Updated decor. We'll be coming back! I did have one slight problem with my AC unit but you can see I gave it five stars still, because they were on their game and fixed it right away for me.

  • Aug 26, 2020 by Yuliya Lyube

    Very nice hotel, really pretty. It is right on the beach, with a stairway going down the cliff right to the beach. There’s a restaurant right next door which is really good. The rooftop is beautiful. All throughout the property there is outdoor furniture and fire pits which give it the best relaxing mood. Just walking in I was able to relax and enjoy my time there. The rooms are clean and nice. A great hotel overall

  • Aug 26, 2020 by Tina Holmes

    Currently vacationing, so far so great! Amanda was very helpful booking my reservation and also put in a request for a room not on floor level. Joey, was very kind while checking us in & gave a wonderful recommendation to a restaurant close by. We have a room on the 3rd floor, room 345, "Ocean view King Deluxe) Beautiful ocean views, bed is very comfortable (a must for me). Room is very clean. Continental breakfast was good. Boxed juice, milk, cereal, bagels & pastries. So far so good.

  • Aug 25, 2020 by The Mac

    This place is pretty spectacular location wise with a stairway down to the beach. Great clean and sizeable rooms.

  • Aug 11, 2020 by Chris Lake

    The location is awesome, the room was great, bed is comfortable and has nice space in the room. The only negatives were the check-in wait time due to Covid-19 and certain guests. Check-in is supposed to be 4pm, but we didn't get a room until almost 6:30. There's also a no smoking policy guests obviously cannot follow and is not enforced. Its not an enjoyable experience if you're sitting on the balcony trying to enjoy the ocean air and someone in another room nearby is smoking a joint stinking up the area. Also, had issues with the TV not working. They had their maintenance guy out quickly to resolve the issue and he was very professional.

  • Aug 09, 2020 by Jorge Alvarez

    We had to wait 4 hours yes 4 hours
    To get our room
    They said they had only one person cleaning the rooms per floor
    The prices weren’t cheap $400 per night
    I would think they can hire more people
    And the worse part we weren’t the only ones
    A lot of angry people
    I would never ever come back

  • Aug 04, 2020 by Paul Gutierrez

    Very nice and clean with great ocean

  • Aug 01, 2020 by Marc Mantelli

    Nice hotel. Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Has access to the beach, via a stair way down. Breakfast had a decent selection.

  • Jul 27, 2020 by This PumpGuy

    Great for kids. Nice spas and pool. Direct beach access. Will be our vacation spot from now on.

  • Jul 11, 2020 by Garrett Pool

    Great room service . The ground keepers were exceptionally nice and dry helpful. Kevin and his crew deserve a raise for their hospitality and friendliness. God bless you guys , the guest were very nice and we loved the Christian music. May God continue to bless you guys and all who desire to stay here. Great Christian atmosphere . Hallelujah

  • Jun 26, 2020 by bri bates

    We had an awesome stay for our staycation. Highly recommend if you are in the area and want a beautiful ocean view. Joey checked us in and was very courteous even while our child was having a meltdown in the lobby. He showed us around and made us very comfortable. Thank you. Will be back.

  • Jun 22, 2020 by Isabel Molina-Cantu

    Very welcoming at check-in. Room was clean. Slept well as mattress was comfortable. We had ocean view balcony. Spacious outdoor social for friends and family. Bbq pits, nice clean pool. Great access to beach. Continental breakfast with many choices.

  • Jun 15, 2020 by Jessica Smith

    Loved our stay! Loved our ocean view. Room was very clean. Spent time down at the fire pit. Staff was very helpful. Beach access was great. Although I do feel like check in time at 4pm is pretty late. Wish it was a little bit earlier. Will Deff be staying again

  • Jun 07, 2020 by Stephan Greenhill

    The hotel was very nice with 24hr beach access. The room was well laid out with nice decorations. I had a view of the coast and the water, which my wife truly loved. The beach access was on the hotel premises and the beach was very clean. The only drawback was the dinning facility was not located in the main building and parking is not as robust as you'd like at a facility like this and it's shared with the dinning facility.

  • Jun 05, 2020 by Amber Claido

    From booking to check out our stay was amazing! The staff went above and beyond on multiple occasions to meet our needs including rescuing my son's kite that was trapped in a palm tree! We will be booking again soon!!

  • May 16, 2020 by Phillip Lloyd

    Wonderful place to stay for the value! Prior to our arrival, Amanda did all that she could to accommodate our desires to surprise the mother of our family with a wonderful bouquet of flowers and candy & ice cream upon arrival to the room. They also look to keep the place up as clean as possible, given the current environment. Even with the absence of their major amenities, the experience was still very enjoyable, the best part being immediate access to the beach (which was the primary reason we chose this hotel). The aspect of the hotel that has most interested, was the fact that our room would have a full view of the ocean (best part!).

  • May 04, 2020 by Nina Almanza

    I took a drive with my kids to the coast, we’re from South Lake Tahoe area and needed to get away. I walked into the reception and there was Amanda. So friendly and welcoming. I knew in the first 2 minutes of conversation this is a place I will be come to from now on. Amanda engaged in conversation while booking my room and had me booked and in quickly. I’m impressed!!!! Thank you Amanda!!!!!

  • Apr 30, 2020 by Christopher Lopez Leon

    This has got to be by far the most relaxing and most amazing stay. I've had so far the views are amazing and the beach is just a walk down from the rooms the staff is so amazing. Adi ,Theresa, and Elizabeth where beyond welcoming. The rooms are very detailed and clean will be back very soon.

  • Mar 19, 2020 by Travis McArthur

    This place is amazing! Great views! Great service! Fun! Although two of the hot tubs were down including the adult on it was still fun! Very comfy beds! Amazing pillows! Great breakfast!

  • Mar 10, 2020 by bimal shah

    Unfortunately, I had a terrible and rude experience with Julian at front desk when I tried to understand the hotel's billing. Also, the hotel is okay at best. The rooms are a bit sterile, but they do have good views of the ocean. Hopefully, the management finds a better spot of Julian to keep him away from the hotel guests

  • Mar 09, 2020 by Chad Schommer

    This hotel has recently remodeled rooms, beautiful views, an attentive staff, a hot breakfast every morning included with stay and a quick access to town and beach. Communication from staff is on point. They have a texting system as well for requests. The rooftops have hangout spots with heaters and couches which have incredible views. The hotel sits on a clean and well maintained property with a spa and pool as well. Prices are reasonable for the accommodations.

  • Feb 26, 2020 by Michael Rothstein

    Room is surprisingly comfortable with excellent bedding, large mini fridge, and microwave. Free WiFi too. Although our room says "no view" we can see the ocean from our deck, and hear its soothing sound by opening our deck window. Super quiet floor and staff has been friendly and helpful. I'd be happy to stay here again.

  • Feb 16, 2020 by Edward Booth

    Very clean and a Spectacular view, Very Maintained grounds Well groomed Grounds, Very very clean Couldn't ask for anything more. The continental breakfast could have been more sanitary. But other than that excellent. We will be coming back again this year And hope everything is OK for us, Last time we went down and stayed they were painting and asphalting the Parking lot and got Asphalt all over our feet and shoes. Hopefully all the work is done.I would recommend people staying there any time of the year. We will be back.

    Really nice hotel. Good breakfast, very good staff. Awesome jacuzzi and pool. Beautiful oceanview! Will be coming here again!

  • Feb 01, 2020 by Marvin Lake

    This was a well manicured grounds that had all the amenities. A spectacular view and we had a constant view from our balcony. A safe walk down to the beach and such a pleasant stroll. The bed was comfortable and I slept with sound of the crashing surf. A wonderful time!

  • Jan 27, 2020 by Rosa Kirchner

    Starting at the phone service and checking has been perfect. Rooms are clean. Recommend for a full nights rest and njoy all it has to offer.

  • Jan 23, 2020 by Eddy Rayher

    Our family goes there every year. We love it. BUT this year they decided to get rid of the breakfast buffet at the hotel and instead you get a ticket to get ONE item at Willow’s restaurant. The food there was not good. The service was poor.

  • Jan 20, 2020 by marshall guo

    We booked an ocean view room, the view was great. Room is not very big but it's cozy. The door has big gap between the frame, don't know it's common for every room or just the room we've got.

  • Jan 01, 2020 by Mirandalynn Calissie

    Clean. Beautiful. Amazing view. Great staff. One of my favorites

  • Jan 01, 2020 by Lloyd Martin

    We really loved this place! Very spacious for our family of 4, quality modern amenities (TV, etc.), very clean and maintained, and the view overlooking the ocean was breathtaking, especially with all the pelicans flying by. (There's a nearby point that's apparently a popular gathering place for them.) There are good, sturdy stairs going down to the beach, and the beach was one of the cleanest we visited on our 2-well visit. Also, process we're slightly cheaper than other nearby places. Oh, and there's a great little sitting area with comfy outdoor chairs, a fire pit; in the mornings, it's the perfect place to enjoy their very above-average Continental breakfast, too. This is now our go-to place for staying at the coast in that region.

  • Dec 16, 2019 by Andrew Pontious

    The place is super clean! I love the views and the sunset. This is by far my favorite hotel. I highly recommend it. The prices can be a little pricey but it's worth it!! They also put cookies out everyday.

  • Dec 10, 2019 by Marie R.

    We have stayed at this hotel multiple times a year on a regular basis, especially when my son was at Cal Poly between 2010-2014. We were excited for the new renovations since the last time we were there, they were just beginning the change. This visit,  we had a couple of issues. They had a crew replastering the hot tub. The fumes from the chemicals were so strong we had to close our sliding door. Even one of the workers commented and was concerned. Later that evening, we were in the room and heard young men yelling. My husband walked down the path and saw them drinking beer and peeing in the bushes! Obviously, they weren't staying at the hotel, just partying on the patio. He told one of the workers, but it didn't seem to change the situation. When we left, Amanda commented that we had a dog. I was cross-interrogated on whether she was a service dog or ESA. I was then scolded that an ESA is not a service dog. I told her to just go ahead and charge me the fee. My dog is a 7-pound hypoallergenic breed. When we left, we stopped at the Dolphin Bay Resort for lunch. They never even asked if our dog was a service dog or ESA and wanted us to come into the dining room. We ate on the patio, but I appreciated that they treated us respectfully like we were valued customers. Next time we will spend our weekend at the Dolphin Bay Resort.

    LOVE THIS PLACE Came for our first year anniversary in April of  2018. Cant believe I never posted a review here. We had a perfect view and the room was sooo nice. We also ate at the restaurant that is on the property. It had only been open two weeks and the food was excellent. Check out the photos and go!!!

  • Nov 29, 2019 by Bonnie G.

    My review is more of a 3.5, just for the record Positives: 1. Comfy beds and decently sized rooms. Bright and modern with a beach vibe. 2. The hotel grounds are nice. But in winter, it's just a bit harder to appreciate/make use of it all. 3. Only about a mile to downtown Pismo by foot. 4. Staff has been friendly. Negatives: 1. They need to think about breakfast seating IN WINTER. It was about 40 degrees out today and it had rained yesterday so chairs were not only cold but also wet. 2. While I love their efforts to conserve water, how about doing the same paper and plastic? I think of all the people generating pounds and pounds of trash between 7:30 and 9:30 at breakfast, and frankly, it's enough to make you lose your appetite. :( Yes, all plates are paper and they use plastic cutlery. :( 3. LOTS of noise near our room. We are right by the elevator, and I consistently hear guests and staff conversing loudly. :( 4. No gym. For the price we paid to stay here, they should have an agreement with the place down the street that allows you free access. 5. The breakfast has lots of options but many are unhealthy. Luckily, they did have oatmeal! The fresh fruit was not good. Oranges were sour. Apples were mealy. If you are with kids, though, they will love it! Pancake machine. Muffins. cereal.

    Okay, let's just get the obvious out of the way. It's oceanfront...and the view alone gets all the stars. They probably have one of the best sunset locations in all of Pismo Beach. It's also has direct access to the beach, which is always a plus. We stayed in a 2-bed room and had a nice ocean view from our room. It was foggy in the morning, but once it cleared up, we had such an amazing view to take in. The check in/out process was a breeze and they have such a cute lobby. Staff was super nice and accommodating to our requests as well. Pros: -free parking...and plenty of it -free WiFi -beds were super comfy and clean -bathroom was good size -sink area was super spacious -complimentary cookies in the lobby from 3-6pm -complimentary breakfast in the dining room from 7-10am -bike rentals available for a fee -beautiful pool...with jacuzzi!! -fire pits to sit around at night -rooftop terrace -restaurant on-site (but I would skip it and go to the many other better restaurants Pismo Beach has to offer) Cons: -to be honest...there really were none. I truly did have a magical stay here and I wish I could have stayed longer for my vacation. At least I know for the future to book all my rooms at SeaCrest!

    My husband surprised me and took me to Seacrest OceanFront Hotel for my birthday.  This hotel is stunning and the view we had was breathtaking.  I literally cried.  We had an ocean view and I still cant get over how incredibly beautiful it was.  The room was very spacious, clean and obviously newly renovated.  This has romance written all over it.  We had a wonderful time.  We will be back.

  • Nov 20, 2019 by lisa m.

    I could go on for paragraphs about how much I love staying here. If you haven't stayed here before, you really should. They are family friendly, pet friendly, and have A LOT to offer. My husband and I won't stay anywhere else. The SeaCrest has recently gone through a remodel and the place looks GREAT! It no longer has a retro vibe, but instead is now more of a modern feel with a twist of beach. The staff has always been friendly and accommodating, and even sends complementary wine to our room if we are there for special occasions, such as a birthday or anniversary. We have never had a bad experience. If you have never visited before the property has beach access, a pool, 3 hot tubs, bbq grills, fire pit seating at night, a nice patio for enjoying the ocean view, roof top viewing, and a pretty decent complimentary breakfast in the mornings.

    I found this place through Groupon but FYI they do price matching! I chose to stay here during an impromptu getaway to Pismo Beach because I had heard it was dog friendly. This was the perfect beach vacation. The room was very clean and big with an excellent layout because the back patio opens up to a massive lawn area and just a few steps away are stairs down to the dog friendly beach. I arrived to check-in around midnight after a long drive and the front desk staff John was very friendly and helpful in orienting me to the hotel's layout and breakfast time. There's a $100 cleaning fee for staying with a dog but I'd say it was worth it compared to boarding them. When we got to the room, there was a dog bed and bowls. You get to keep the dog bowls but the bed stays in the room. Breakfast is served 7AM-10AM was pretty good for a typical continental breakfast. There was your usual fare of eggs, sausage, waffles, pancakes, yogurt, cereals, fruit and pastries. Everything was constantly being refilled so you didn't have to wait long to get a plate. Beyond breakfast was the lovely seating with a spectacular view of the ocean. There was plenty of seating on the terrace to sit with my fat dogs. Grounds: There's hot tubs and pools and huge areas of grassy lawns to hang out. Plenty of seating with umbrellas and gas fireplaces for chilly nights. This is a great place to bring kids and pets. The location was only about 1 mile from the downtown area. Checkout their website if you're traveling with dogs as they make some great recommendations on where to eat and play with dogs in tow. There are dog cleanup stations with bins everywhere so no excuses! Oftentimes I hate traveling with my dogs because I worry they're a nuisance but this place seemed incredibly welcoming and with so many people bringing their own dog I felt comfortable with my dogs hanging out. Overall this was just a wonderful hotel to spend the weekend and relax by the beach. I'm so happy to have discovered it and we'll be back very soon.

    Amazing property!  The whole property is extremely clean.  The staff is helpful and nice.  The views are breathtaking.  Highly recommend!

  • Oct 25, 2019 by Justin Simper

    We always stay here when we’re in Pismo and love it! The view is amazing and it’s right by everything we want to do! The front desk staff is super friendly and so helpful! We travel a lot and go many places but this is definitely one of our favorites.

  • Oct 08, 2019 by Lucie

    Get an ocean view room so you can watch the waves from your bed!

  • Oct 01, 2019 by Carissa Garletts

    The views are worth it alone. This hotel stands out from some of the others close by because of the beach access. The breakfast buffet was busy but plentiful and more options than your typical continental breakfast. Parking is also free which is a bonus. Stayed in a partial ocean view room which had a decent view of the pier, beach, and water but honestly it doesn’t matter which room you stay in because you’ll want to go out to the sea deck and sit by the many different fire pits or couches to take in all of the views.

  • Oct 01, 2019 by Nathalie Tran

    Our very first time here and will definitely be back. Lovely resort with everything any family would ever want or need. Nice touch were the afternoon fresh baked cookies

  • Sep 25, 2019 by Crystal Valencia

    They recently remodeled the hotel, it is very nice! Breakfast is great, they have pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, English muffins, pastries, yogurts, cereals, and fruits. They also provide orange juice, cranberry, coffee and teas. The entire staff is phenomenal, I will definitely stay here again.

  • Sep 23, 2019 by Aylette Roper

    Absolute heaven! Rooms are trendy, fresh, airy and spotless. The property is out of a magazine. The best part is the staff that begins over backwards. Will definitely be back.

  • Sep 16, 2019 by Jeannine Forslund

    Great value...rooms are very nicely appointed in beach motif, spacious and very clean. Grounds are well maintained, and views of beach and Pismo pier are stunning. Access to incredible beach for walking. Only downsides are the thin walls/ceiling (woken up just be people walking around on floor above) and the loud cycling of the heater/AC.

  • Sep 14, 2019 by E Majich

    Clean family orientated on the ocean with spectacular views. Just a little north of Pismo pier. Nice descent to secluded beach. Decent breakfast like you would get any self serve layout.Fire pits for ambiance

  • Aug 29, 2019 by James Dawson

    So we splashed out on a ocean view room which had a fantastic view of the ocean, see picture below. They have a great location with easy access to the beach and newly refreshed rooms. Lovely pool and hot-tubs. Free coffee all day, breakfast and really nice staff.

  • Aug 26, 2019 by Bethany McGuire

    I cannot say enough amazing things about the SeaCrest Hotel. The staff is wonderful. Everyone is so willing to help. I spent a week at the hotel while hosting a meeting on-site in their banquet space. My guest room and the banquet space were both updated and absolutely perfect! The staff was extremely responsive to requests and eager to make our experience a positive one. The location was ideal. Stay or host your next meeting at this hotel. You won't regret it!

  • Aug 11, 2019 by sarah haffey

    Really nice! The rooms feel new and nicely appointed. The views, amenities, and people are great!

  • Jul 30, 2019 by Cynthia NT

    Our meal was FABULOUS! Pet-friendly location, which helped in our decision on where to eat on our 1st night. Michael was our server and did an A+++++ job keeping us fed and keeping the 2pups hydrated

  • Jul 16, 2019 by Nick Alarcon

    This was the best hotel that my wife and I have ever stayed at in Pismo Beach!!! The rooms were amazing, the view from the patio/walk around garden area is amazing. Walking distance from the beach, and only a short drive from downtown. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good place to stay in Pismo.

  • Jul 09, 2019 by Robert Sitarz

    Outstanding hotel. Rooms are slick and super clean. Staff are top notch.
    The included bfast is good (get there early). Access to a great beach and close pismo activities.

  • Jul 03, 2019 by Sherman Negotiators

    I love The Seacrest. My family has been here several times. From wonderful beds and clean rooms to a direct path to the beach. Hot tubs and fire pits. Great location in Pismo. For a good hotel, this is great! Expect hot eggs, sausages and so much more for the included breakfasts.

  • Jun 24, 2019 by Daisy R.

    This Hotel will be our Family favorite for Pismo. Don't have any negative things to say . The hotel has great views , nice swimming pool with 2 hot tubs , a lot of parking , The rooms were nice, and very clean. The balcony had a great view of the beach . Over all excellent hotel . Thanks to Colton for bringing us a bottle of wine to our room . We'll definitely be back !

  • Jun 23, 2019 by Lisa P.

    Good golly!  Ed! I called planning to make a reservation for my elderly father and myself.  Since this would have been our first stay with SeaCrest, I was hoping to get some advice in choosing the best room option for our circumstance. I waited patiently for the next available booking agent; unfortunately, that was Ed.  I tried to explain our needs, but Ed didn't seem to even listen.  He was impatient, and curt in his responses.  I am sure most of the staff at SeaCrest are courteous and helpful, but I got Ed!  I will call Lighthouse.

  • Jun 23, 2019 by Vicki N.

    We took my mom on vacation to Sea crest oceanfront Hotel in Pismo Beach. When we checked in Colton at the front desk was amazing. My mom turned 80 and they had a bottle of wine and a special birthday card in the room for her. The rooms are gorgeous the breakfast in the morning is really good. The set up and the view from our room is breathtaking. I highly recommend staying here you will truly enjoy it. Thank you Colton for making us feel so welcome and making my mom feel special on her 80th birthday. Vicki,  Derrill and Bobbi.

  • Jun 22, 2019 by Felicia V.

    Love the SeaCrest hotel. We spent our honeymoon here many years ago and continue to come to spend our anniversaries. We had a reservation this past week and was checked in by COLTON. (Reason I'm writing the review) He was super friendly and had great customer service! Thank you Colton for the outstanding service. So hard to find now a days!

  • Jun 21, 2019 by TheBlueEyedCritic L.

    I had the most wonderful stay here at Seacrest. The staff are so great. My room was really nice and clean with a wonderful view of the ocean and pool. I slept great with no loud noises and woke up to a beautiful sunset. The breakfast buffet was absolutely delicious and those fresh baked cookies oh my gosh! I will definitely be back. 100% recommended for a lovely stay by the beach.

  • Jun 21, 2019 by Chris R.

    This place is great! Its right on the beach! We had an Oceanfront Room.  Its within walking distance to everything.  Was nice to have the Restaurant and Lounge right upstairs.  The decor is newly updated and the service and cleanliness rocks! Thank you Christina, Cynthia, and Amanda. We will return again!

  • Jun 15, 2019 by Daniel Ruegemer

    Great choice for a quick getaway. Very relaxed.

    Great views, three hot tubs and a nice pool. Barbecues you can use.

    Open layout with many lounge chairs and fireplaces to hang out. Decent breakfast. Kids liked it too. Will be back.

  • Jun 15, 2019 by Andrew Mcgowan

    Lovely hotel, we stayed at the seacrest for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms were a good size and nice and clean. The staff we dealt with were very good and knowledgeable. The hotel it self is on top of the cliffs and is only a short walk from pismo either along the beach or along the road . If we were ever in the area again we would definitely stay there again.

  • Jun 12, 2019 by Joe S.

    We are here on our last night of a 4 night stay. This hotel is a pleasant surprise  at a very competitive rate. The hotel has been remodeled inside and out recently and the rooms and the grounds are wonderful. There are a lot of families staying here but the layout of the hotel is such that you don't feel crowded out; there are plenty of areas to hang out and relax and the views of the ocean are spectacular. The pool is a little small but, with direct access to the beach, who cares? The staff has been very polite. Everyone greeted and chatted with us throughout our stay; grounds, cleaning staff, everyone. We had an issue with our tv remote and the front desk called us to make sure it was fixed. Excellent follow through. This kind of service shows a commitment to customer service by the management. Well done!

  • Jun 12, 2019 by Dee L.

    We stayed here last October for our sons 14th birthday. The gentleman that took our reservations, Phil, went above and beyond to make our guy feel special. He gave us a room with a gorgeous view and left a bottle of sparkling cider on ice waiting for us when we arrived. Our boys enjoyed a complimentary ice cream as we were checking in. We chose this location because it was pet friendly, I would recommend a bottom level room if you have pets. That way you can open the slider and they can run out to the grass. There was a dog bed, water bowl, and bone in our room. Totally adorable. We did not try the pool or spa, but did take the back steps down to the beach. This was probably the most gorgeous beach I have ever been to. I wish we had planned more time to explore the area. There was a long list of places that delivered so we ordered in and enjoyed the sunset. Hit up the sand dunes the next day for a fun day on atv's. Beautiful experience! Will definitely be back soon!

  • Jun 08, 2019 by Dottie W.

    This place is so lovely.  It's been awhile since I visited, but have coming here for over 35 years.  It is newly renovated and gorgeous.  I like that it is dog friendly and has a great complimentary breakfast.  Special thank you to Christina Cordova the Guest Services Supervisor who was so gracious and welcoming. We will definitely be back to stay at this lovely place.

  • Jun 07, 2019 by Bill

    Rooms are outstanding, great views, free parking, free breakfast

  • Jun 07, 2019 by Phil D.

    SeaCrest Hotel is an absolutely amazing hotel in Pismo. Every square inch of the property is in like-new condition. We typically stay at 4-5 star resort style properties and SeaCrest ranks right up there with the best. We stayed 2-nights and We received First-Class service from the second we arrived, first being welcomed by "John" at the front desk. He is an asset to this place. We ran into John a couple time throughout our stay and every time he asked how our visit is going. John wasn't the only staff member proving exceptional service to guests, in fact every single person we spoke with working at this property was amazing (Karlee and Cristina). Our ocean front room had two king size beds, a large lounging/window sitting area and a balcony. The room was larger than any standard hotel room I've ever been in and it was extremely clean. The parking lot provides plenty of parking and we were always able to find several spots at any time of day. Very easy walk into town either on the sidewalk or just along the beach to the pier. My kids loved the fresh chocolate chip cookies made throughout the day in the lobby. Free continental breakfast from 7-10am was really good, but gets crowded from 9-10. I HIGHLY recommend SeaCrest Hotel! We can't wait to go back.

  • Jun 07, 2019 by Bill P.

    First time staying here and very impressed. Recently remodeled and done extremely well. Upgraded to an ocean front room , spacious, comfortable bed, outstanding views. Large balcony with comfortable furniture. Surprised to find free breakfast as well. Extremely pleased will stay here again, love that you can hear the surf all night

  • Jun 02, 2019 by C P.

    Absolutely loved this hotel and it exceeded my expectations. We had an ocean view, it was SUPER inexpensive, it was newly renovated, it was CLEAN AF & we loved that we could take dinner down to the fire and sit by the ocean AND they provided free water in the room - all in all I loved it. It was perfect as well to wake up while the sun was rising and go out to the front area by the fire and read while watching the waves and the sun rise. My one complaint was that we had left the note requesting our room be left alone by housekeeping, and it was not abided by. Additionally, while we had just wanted this as our usual request - when I was checking out, I heard the couple next to us offered a $10 credit to the ice cream, etc. f they selected not to have their room entered. That was a little a little frustrating to hear.

  • May 28, 2019 by Dasha Biswas

    AMAZING STAY!!!!
    My boyfriend and I came for a holiday weekend and loved every minute of it.. .The hotel is beautiful, remodeled rooms. Ocean view is worth it! Check in was fast and easy, super friendly staff. Same with the check out.
    Thank you Colton, Denise and Kosha!
    The grounds are well kept, so many comfy lounge chairs and fire pits. We also grilled our own food on one of the 3 grills.
    The beach is right below and stretches for a while.
    There is also pools and hot tubs. Absolutely wonderful!!!!
    We will definitely be back!
    Thank you so much from Dasha and Curtis.

  • May 27, 2019 by Damaris E.

    Beautiful beautiful beautiful hotel! Upon arrival, you could see the most beautiful view of the ocean from the lobby! Everyone seemed very nice and welcoming. The only thing that put me off was the strong smell of weed in the hallway :( the room was bright and super cute! The first thing I wanted to do was lay and relax and it definitely helped that you can hear the ocean in the background..so amazing! The next morning we had breakfast and it was pretty good..I believe they start serving from 7am-10am the coffee was great! They had a cereal bar which was real cool, they had so many options for carbs! Bagels, wheat bread, waffles, pancakes...it was crazy! I got some scrambled eggs, sausage, and one slice of a bagel. Although there was a big line, employees were quick to refill items which were running low. I had a great experience here, definitely coming back! Relaxing, clean, and Beautiful! *two thumbs up!*

  • May 21, 2019 by Jordan J.

    Amazing service, Koshen and Colton are great. I have never stayed here before and they literally made my night. I've been driving all night, and they upgraded my room to a better view for an extremely low cost, they went above and beyond the call of duty. They honestly deserve a raise!

  • May 13, 2019 by Michael Mullins

    Always love staying here when in Pismo. Rooms are cozy, staff is friendly and inviting and the views are gorgeous. Definitely would recommend.

    UPDATE: Just checked in a bit ago and absolutely love the room updates/renovations, if I could give more than 5 stars I would. Will keep coming back most definitely!!

  • May 10, 2019 by Teri A.

    Beautiful, clean, friendly staff. Everything was perfect. Definitely will come back. We got a $10.00 credit to waive the maid service. The rooms are beautiful, most with a view of the ocean. Delicious breakfast and wine tasting on Thursdays.

  • May 02, 2019 by Daniel L.

    This place exceeded my expectations. My room was newly redone I think and it was nice a roomy. I didn't have ocean view but still had a balcony which was nice. The outdoor area is great to just relax. The breakfast was standard fare but has what you are looking for: eggs, sausage, pastry, fruit, etc. I planned to go out for breakfast but this place more than satisfied by breakfast needs. Oh, don't leave your plate alone for a moment. I went to get salt and in less than 10 seconds my plate got devoured by two seagulls. Easy access on and off freeway. To get to downtown you can walk on the beach or sidewalk and after 20 minutes you are there, or drive the 5 minutes. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

  • Apr 26, 2019 by Jason H.

    We stayed here a few weeks ago. Amazing view.. the staff was amazing ... we had a small issue with the room and front desk jumped on it right away and put us in a room with an amazing view .. we will return For sure .. have already told a dozen friends to go visit SeaCreast

  • Apr 22, 2019 by Derek M.

    We we're lucky enough to get a room here short notice. The place has a very modern motel feel, but the real draw are the views of the ocean and the beautiful Sea side cliffs. The rooms surround a pool and hot tub. They also have a patio with fire pits to enjoy the cool ocean breeze overnight. The rooms have large balconies, but the railing is kinda positioned poorly so you can't see the ocean well sitting down despite having windows in it. They also included a continental breakfast, but it's only what you'd expect from an average hotel chain. The restaurant they have on site has all your normal pub food, the burgers are good.

  • Apr 21, 2019 by Shannin s.

    i found this hotel to be very poor value. it was lovely to be so close to the ocean, but everything else about this place fell short of expectation. luxuries like bathrobes were a myth; none existed in my room. the breakfast was dismal. nothing lived up to a $350+ room. there was a wedding happening, so it was noisy all night. thin walls separating rooms, the outdoors, and the guests upstairs. there have to be nicer places with better amenities and more character in the area. i am not happy with the experience given how much i paid for the room.

  • Apr 17, 2019 by NinaBella N.

    Love this hotel! It's quiet, has amazing views over the cliffs, nice modern rooms, and friendly staff. We took a last minute trip out to Pismo and we thought about staying at our usual spot, inn at the pier, but it was so loud there last time with all the beach goers, and construction next door... plus the resonating floors and thin walls made it a pretty terrible experience. The sea crest is quite the opposite. You have a direct view of the ocean, you don't have to look past a parking lot to see it. Rooms were quiet and clean. You really can't ask for more. The only real downside is the distance from the main eateries in Pismo. It's walkable if you don't mind walking 15-20 mins. We chose to drive and deal with trying to find a parking spot out there. This place also puts you close to the other beach cities so go out and explore!

  • Apr 16, 2019 by Jonathan W.

    Love this place! I've stayed in many places on the central coast and this is by far my favorite. The rooms are spacious and quiet for the most part. And the view is unreal. You are situated above the cliffs about half a mile north of Pismo Beach with access to a small private beach below. The bed was very comfortable, and the decor was modern and clean. No complaints. We started in a regular ocean view room in the main older building. It was nice but the floors were a bit soft like padded vinyl or something so it was kinda weird. They have a lot of premium channels here and we were able to watch part of the season premiere for game of thrones... But the off brand TVs lack in brightness and sound quality. Today we were upgraded to one of the fancier rooms overlooking the ocean and I think the best part about this room is that you can no longer hear the cars passing on the highway right in front this hotel. Breakfast wasn't bad, it just wasn't mind blowing. But there are actually a ton of places in Pismo with great breakfast so who wants to stay in a hotel all day anyways. The best part of our stay has been the staff. We were assisted both days by Colton at the front desk and this guy is a superstar. He took care of our every need. Answered any and all of our questions, and basically took great care of us. He made our stay at the seacrest a great and memorable experience.

  • Apr 12, 2019 by Kris C.

    Loved our get away to SeaCrest.  Had an ocean view room, 3rd floor, super nice, clean, comfortable.  The staff was super nice about getting us more towels, etc.  (wish they had an onsite restaurant).  Sat by the fire at night and they will give you blankets if you request. The steps down to the beach are easy and the short walk along the beach to the pier is beautiful and easy.   It would be 5 star for me if they offered rentals on site (wet suits, boards, etc.)

  • Apr 08, 2019 by Melissa Alvarado-Vazquez

    My family and I had an exceptional stay here at SeaCrest for our first time. The price was great and the rooms had a homey feeling to them. The view of the beach and the outside were beautiful. The breakfast was delicious! It was definitely worth the trip! Thank you Jon for your assistance!

  • Apr 08, 2019 by Estee A.

    While the location is EPIC & the hotel has huge potential... there is some major room for improvement.   I think my husband put it best when he said "it's like a wanna be resort being run by motel 6 staff."     A MAJOR disappointment is the breakfast.  There is not one thing that is even remotely appetizing... it's a stingy assortment of highly processed-preservative laden junk... breads & muffins & sugary juices, BAD coffee, fake "out of a carton" scrambled eggs... just all around bad.   Which is really a shame considering we smacked down $900 for three nights in this hotel. I have traveled the world & NO WHERE could you spend this amount of money and be offered such a lousy array of "food", if you can even call it that.  It makes me so ashamed as an American how LOW our standard is.   Anywhere else in the world where you pay $300 a night, you can count on a mouth watering array of cheeses, fresh fruit, "tell us how you like it"omelette bar, nuts, meats, yogurts.....   food is important and really should be given more attention at a place like SeaCrest. What a shame. Another simple observation that seemed stark & TACKY is the note in the room boasting "WE offer free water. Most hotels don't, but we do...".  I mean come on- that is just not classy, guys.  It's a bottle of water after all, stop hooting your horn. I think I paid for it...  (and as a side note, this FREE bottles of water are only for the first night.  If you pay for consecutive nights, you lose the great privilege of free water....).   Eye-yi-yi..... Another doozy was every evening we went to the jacuzzi and the towels are - no joke- the size of a hand towel!!!!   Crazy.  You need like 4 or 5 to dry yourself....  as if that wasn't bad enough, the towels weren't stocked two out of the three nights.   So it's late, and COLD with the ocean wind and no towel..... ugh. I do hope this review is heard and taken into consideration.  I hope changes are implemented.  When a family pays this sort of money for a refreshing getaway, you should do more to honor your guests SeaCrest.

    Absolutley love staying here! Pictures do not do it justice. Even though they are doing some remodeling everyone one there was so accommodating especially Danielle! Since we bombarded her with questions  and she answered them making sure we were good. She definitely made us feel welcomed and at home. The atmosphere is beautiful and even more so at night! Don't feel like walking to the beach to get in some water? There's a pool and jacuzzis over looking the ocean! How can that get any better?! I reccomend for everyone to come here. So far each time we have came they go above and beyond. Can't wait to come again!

  • Apr 06, 2019 by Greg L.

    Views are spectacular.  Hotel is immaculate and the front desk staff goes above and beyond. We have stayed at this hotel now 4 times and it never disappoints......

  • Apr 05, 2019 by Jocelyn S.

    We were not told the hotel is under construction!! In addition to that, I had booked a pet friendly room which they did not find on my reservation, and wanted to charge me $200 for two nights to have our tiny dog there... After negotiations, we ended up staying, but I did not feel the staff cared about the mixup, or wanted us to feel welcomed. The rooms are cute, beds are not excellent, pillows are not great. The pool is nice. Breakfast is average. I think if the staff was friendly, all around from beginning, middle to the end, it would have gone a long way in feeling better about our stay with the noise and construction. If you opt out of housekeeping, you get a voucher of $10 per day towards a bottle wine, or beer. We opted out, and I got a bottle of wine, and when checking out, they charged me $10 for the bottle, which I redeemed 2 vouchers at $10 each. With all that, the staff is in need of some hospitality training!!

  • Apr 03, 2019 by Rachel C.

    We enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel.  The renovations are brand new and the amenities were nice.  Free breakfast which was fantastic. Eggs, sausage, toast, bagels, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, coffee, tea, juice.  We had some hiccups with our AC not working on the first night and unfortunately, I didn't notice until we were unpacked so, they fixed it the next day and without even asking they gave us a small credit for the inconvenience​.  In the afternoon/evening time, they set out chocolate chip cookies and there was always hot coffee and tea in the lobby.  Don't get that everywhere!  I loved that they offered a $10 credit each night if you didn't need your room cleaned.  I'm sure they would have still given clean towels but, this is their efforts to save resources and I think it's a fantastic idea!  I would highly recommend.

    Doesn't look like much from the street, but what a great location.  They are just finishing refurbishing the entire motel.  Karlee gave us a brand new "coastal partial ocean view" on the 4th floor of the North tower, #411.  Perfect!!  We had an ABC pizza at the adjacent  Willow restaurant and then came back to sit around a fire pit to watch the sun set while listening to the rolling waves.  Beautiful beach front property.

    We came into the Pismo area for a wedding this month and decided to stay at SeaCrest! We had an ocean view room and absolutely loved it, the views were amazing! The room came with a king-sized bed and was spacious enough and clean! The front desk clerk was really friendly & accommodating (Cynthia) during check-in as well. With us being first timers at the hotel she mentioned to us about the beach access, which was really cool to just be able to walk down onto the beach! First timers, who will definitely be coming back as this has now become "Our Spot"!

  • Mar 24, 2019 by Samuel L.

    This place is amazing! The service is great, the people are kind, and the beach view is breathtaking! We LOVE Seacrest!

  • Mar 22, 2019 by Krystal J.

    Everything was Great ! Clean and the staff was very accommodating to everything beautiful beach access. Patio area set up with fires to stay warm ... ice creams were delicious. Kids also enjoyed the stay

  • Mar 20, 2019 by Bryan R.

    Outstanding upgrade to already incredible locale...the attention to detail is notable and the new design is heavenly. Bravo!

  • Mar 16, 2019 by Bill R.

    Our room was recently renovated.The room was excellent.The bed was really comfortable.The staff was friendly and helpful.

  • Mar 15, 2019 by Jennifer L.

    Beautiful hotel, wonderful Staff.  My husband and I stayed here for my work conference for 3 days.  They were highly accommodating as I changed my room to upgrade to an ocean view and can I say these rooms were redone and gorgeous.  The grounds were clean as well as the rooms.  The fire pits on the terrace and down by the pools were comfortable and cozy for all of us to get together and hang out and BBQ.  All in all I love this hotel and will be back for sure!

  • Mar 14, 2019 by D.M. Page

    I LOVE THIS HOTEL. It's on the beach. It has outdoor seating and fire pits. The rooms are cozy. I can't wait to go back. It will be my go-to hotel in Pismo Beach.

  • Mar 14, 2019 by Trevor S.

    Great location and amazing views from our oceanfront room.  The remodel looks really nice! Our room was recently updated and it was very cozy.  Half of the rooms are still currently under construction but we had no issues with sound or anything. Polite staff and clean property! Thanks again, will definitely consider next time we are back!

  • Mar 13, 2019 by A. T.

    We always stay here when in the area.  We love this place and the staff is extremely friendly professional, and accommodating. Special shout out to Danielle, Karlee, and Christina! This is truly an oceanfront hotel with amazing views! The rooms are spacious, cozy, and clean. Having a coffee maker, microwave and mini refrigerator makes it convenient. The beds are very comfortable. Since the property is oceanfront, you can listen to the waves all day & night long having the sliding door open.   Pool & jacuzzi, BBQ, and breakfast area have nice chairs and fire pits.   Breakfast is free with variety of choices! We love this place and will keep coming back!

  • Mar 10, 2019 by Prateek J.

    Great hotel. Clean rooms. Nice service. Wholesome breakfast. Amazing view of the ocean.

  • Mar 07, 2019 by Jennifer E.

    First thing I want to say I've been coming here for 11 years consistently I currently live in Los Angeles and I come and stay at this place at least three times a year I have tried other places once in awhile but I always go back to home Seacrest is always great extremely friendly Carly and Christina are wonderful. I've been coming here since they remodeled it twice this last remodel is very modern but of course I love though old style I guess I'm just set my ways I've always had great customer service and I've never had a problem the only thing that I really don't like is at the pool closes at 8:30 even in the summer time that new owners have changed a lot of things but that is one thing I do not agree with I think it should be open at least till 9:30 or 10 p.m. there has never been a problem in the past and I don't know why they changed it now if people are complaining and get this place less than 4 stars you have a problem Seacrest is wonderful thank you for having  I hope I see you guys soon.

  • Mar 02, 2019 by Familie Hong

    Amazing location (essentially, cliff's edge overlooking the Pacific Ocean) and great value for the price (though we stayed here midweek during the off-season in mid February). Plenty of rooms available as we stopped by on a same-day check in. Heated pool, 2 jacuzzis, and standard light continental breakfast included. Excellent, friendly service. Lots of restaurants within a few minutes drive. Direct access to the beach via a long set of stairs. Note: the stairs end at a part of the beach covered with rocks/boulders, so could be a little tricky to navigate for little ones or people with mobility-difficulties, but my 7-year-old loved climbing the rocks and exploring the tide pools.

  • Feb 27, 2019 by Martha W.

    Great experience! I felt welcomed as soon as I walked in, I was greeted by Kosha and Cynthia. while we were checking in Kosha showed of where and how our room was located at. While our stay we had a nice room and a great view of the ocean and the overall environment was amazing and friendly. I would definitely recommend for all future visitors!!!!

  • Feb 27, 2019 by Fredrick J.

    Amazing! Absolutely recommend, amazing view great guest service and hospitality. Right when I walked in I was greeted by the front desk which consist of Kosha and Cynthia , as soon as you talk to them you immediately feel welcomed, as soon as they checked us in they started to show us where and how to get our room. For the next two days we saw nothing but an amazing scenery, would definitely be coming back soon!!!!!!

  • Feb 23, 2019 by stephanie sarginson

    Amazing upgraded room with a view! I felt like a millionaire. Awesome helpful staff and the views are AMAZING.

  • Feb 19, 2019 by Nora F.

    The staff is amazing! Everyone was friendly, professional and helpful. We did ask to switch rooms because the heater was quick loud and the staff was more than accommodating. They even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine since we came for our anniversary. Breakfast is an added plus. The views from the rooms are gorgeous. The newer remodeled building is lovely! The rooftop terrace is absolutely breathtaking! We will definitely be back!

  • Feb 18, 2019 by Angel Avila

    Whenever we plan a trip to Pismo we always try and stay here. The location is perfect the pool area is amazing and the staff is always awesome and accommodating. This most recent visit was from my daughters birthday and Phillip made it special by giving her a card and ice cream. Little things like that make every visit here special and keeps us coming back

  • Feb 17, 2019 by J B.

    Had an awesome time at the SeaCrest... As soon as we checked in and the staff found our we were in town for my wife's birthday, she was given a complimentary birthday cake ice cream cookie!! We were shown around the property, hours of different amenities, etc. Shout out to Phillip, Alyssa and Cynthia for making us feel welcomed. we were provided recommendations on dinner and for making a great weekend. While the weather wasn't the best, our view was still amazing!!!

  • Feb 13, 2019 by Christina C.

    I absolutly love the seacrest! The renovations are beautiful and the property is so majestic. The staff really make your stay so special.  The front desk staff is great and their customer service skills are amazing. Thank you to their amazing staff for making our stay so great. We will be back.

  • Feb 08, 2019 by Natalie T.

    Karlee helped us check in and she was very informative and nice. We asked if we can do a early check in since we got into town early and she checked and said our room wasn't ready yet but told us that she will give us a call once our room was ready. While grabbing something to eat, 15 minutes later she called and told us that our room was ready. We checked in approximately at 3pm. We got the Signature Deluxe Room which was very newly remodeled. It has the most beautiful view ever! Seriously, words does no justice. It was above my expectation. The room was very clean. The only concern i had was that although we didn't touch the little bottles of the shampoo, conditioner and body lotion that Seacrest provided, they were clearly already used 1/4 to half way. Maybe the house keepers forgot to switched them out but we didn't mind since we used our personal ones. It was nice that their spa/ jacuzzi opened until 11pm. We went for a dip in the Jacuzzi around 8pm and the jacuzzi itself was very clean and so was the water. Definitely will be returning!

  • Feb 06, 2019 by Kim Grimm

    Loved it! Stayed in a recently renovated room which was quite nice. Wonderful views from the well kept hotel grounds.

  • Feb 04, 2019 by josanna ramer

    First time staying at Seacrest was a great experience. The service was excellent. The grounds are well kept, the scenery is outstanding and the best part...they have a section which is pet friendly ♡

  • Feb 03, 2019 by Rodrigo E.

    Very friendly staff. Newly renovated rooms are very nice and tasteful. The views are amazing, very well kept common areas like pool, spa, and walkways. Excellent breakfast options. Highly recommended.

  • Feb 01, 2019 by Chris Paxton

    Very nice hotel. Perfect location and views. They are going thru renovations, hopefully to be completed by spring 2019. Really nice fixtures and amenities. I got a newly remodeled room and very clean. Would recommend.

  • Jan 31, 2019 by Leanne D.

    Stayed here while visiting a Pismo Beach area and my husband and all were pleasantly surprised on how nice this hotel is. It is deceiving when we first arrived because the hotel doesn't look like much from the front view. The ocean side is another story!  We had a corner room on the second floor and the view was beautiful.  They also offer a continental breakfast which was nice to grab a quick bite before starting our day. Good location.

  • Jan 27, 2019 by Susanne M.

    The customer service here is just amazing! I walked in having a reservation for a standard room but ended up getting an upgrade! The front desk ladies, Nacosha and Cynthia made it really fun by asking us to sing the song that was playing in the lobby for a free upgrade!! unfortunately I didnt know the words too well but thankfully my husband did! Soon my "standard" room became an ocean room in minutes!! This stay was just miraculous as everyone was so welcoming and helpful! they even let you get some money back for goodies such as ice cream if you do not get your room clean! I don't know any other hotel that offers that, which is very unique!!! Everyday they served fresh cookies to grab which was a great snack sitting in front of the fire pits and enjoying the cloudy day. They also have access to the beach which made it more convient to have fun with the kids! Overall, this place is a must stay. From the customer service to the amazing views right out our balcony. I will definitely stay here again!!

  • Jan 24, 2019 by Nathaniel Volk

    An absolutely stunning location and wonderful hotel. The staff were fun and friendly which always makes a difference. I stayed in one of the newer suites and they were great. having a balcony to enjoy the view was a plus. As I was there in the winter there were fires out on the shared terrace which makes for a great vibe.

  • Jan 21, 2019 by Jay L.

    Customer service Views Peace and quiet Attention to detail Oh did I mention customer service?

  • Jan 21, 2019 by Kelly T.

    My parents have come every year since they were in their 20's and they are now in their 70's. I started bringing my kids every summer. We always get a pool side room and the kids run back and forth from the room to the pool. They have a separate spa just for adults and we love That. The path to the beach winds down a steep wooden staircase the gives a fun beach vibe feel. The beach below has tons of caves and sealife. When we go we never have to get into the car. Food in parking lot and we walk to town along the beach to the pier. The beach and hotel is dog friendly. Friendly service, amazing location. Make it part of your summer tradition.

  • Jan 03, 2019 by Zeus Von S.

    I have stayed here a couple of times and def would recommend. Stayed there over the last holiday to escape the bay area. MOST of the staff is 5 stars, there was 1 girl who just seemed to be having off day during my check in.  Make sure u get the whole thing clear about the room credits should you go that route, it was i think for the lobby food? or drinks i am not sure, i thought it would be just off bill but I was and still am confused on how that worked. I had an issue with the shower and they fixed it right away (it was user error, had odd handle config and the guy politely explained how it worked) ANy how very overall good experience. Be aware they are super pet friendly and dogs may or many not be around you . A few people seemed def scared of dogs, sorry if my GSD looks scurry but he loves people , he just didnt like all the small yappy dogs running around and peeing in front of our patio.   I will vacay here again sometime.

  • Dec 30, 2018 by Rohit Jnagal

    Great stay for large group and kids. The views are amazing. Amenities and staff are above par.

  • Dec 27, 2018 by Tom M.

    Got a great deal through Hot Wire. Because we got a great deal, we knew we would not have a spectacular view room, but our room was fine and we got to take advantage of all of the other hotel amenities.   It's nice that they offer breakfast,  but it's not great. Premade waffles you can toast, a pancake maker, oatmeal,  cereal, toast, rolls, eggs that were just okay. Would stay here again, depending on the price.

  • Dec 27, 2018 by Brian K.

    Convenient location just off the highway and within a few minute drive to downtown Pismo, or about 10-12 min walk via the beach.  Nice big and clean rooms with comfy bed and good hot water and pressure.  Free parking and (slow) Internet. Pool is nice and hot tub could be a little hotter and without the scum bubbles.  My other beef is that there's no real inside seating for breakfast, which isn't normally a complaint, just that it was really cold and windy.  Ended up taking food back up to room. If you can get this hotel for under $180, that's a good deal.

  • Dec 25, 2018 by Erica Reuter

    We had such a pleasant stay. The fire pits are wonderful (need more!). Waking up to sights, sounds and smell of the ocean is just incredible. The staff were great. Very warm and welcoming for me and my kid. Wonderful!

  • Dec 24, 2018 by Jin Yan W.

    Below my expectations. There is a coffee maker next to the toilet. TV is not direct to the bed. However I liked the firepit especially at night.

  • Dec 07, 2018 by Dominic John

    Loved this place. Amazing setting on the beach. Went for a midnight walk down the beach and along the pier. Then woke up for breakfast over the sea. I'll be back...

  • Nov 29, 2018 by Cherri Lavender

    Location is amazing! Rooms are clean and nice! Hotel amenities are very nice. Only diwn fall was pool closed at 8:30 pm. Will definitely go back.

  • Nov 26, 2018 by Tracy L.

    I really enjoyed staying here. The view was really nice and you can even go for a stroll down the stairs behind the swimming pool area. I took a sunset picture going down the stairs while my boyfriend took a picture of me taking a picture of him. Lol. Anyway, this hotel was really generous about the hot chocolate, tea, and coffee options for drinks. They also had warm chocolate chip cookies on the side that are up for grabs. They were delicious btw. For breakfast it comes complimentary and is available from 7-10am. The fruits section comes with grapefruit, banana, green and red apples, and oranges. For juice they have orange, cranberry, and apple. They have carbohydrates like pancakes, waffles, cereal, small blueberry muffins, oatmeal. The oatmeal has toppings like raisins, cinnamon, and brown sugar. They have pre peeled hard boiled eggs available as well. For their caffeine they have coffee, tea, and hot water. Not bad for a complimentary breakfast. I wish they had an omelet option though. But other than that I don't mind. It was nice taking a stroll on the beach after my meal. I don't think you can go wrong with a beautiful beach view on a relaxing weekend.

  • Nov 22, 2018 by Adrienne H.

    I stayed here a few weeks ago for my brothers wedding. I got checked in my room which was one king size bed it was supposed to have a double bed or two double beds because I had my teenage son and my German Shepherd with me and it was a room all the way at the end next to the ice machine next to the door where everybody walks in and out. We say Friday night Saturday night and on Sunday my son had a migraine and was throwing up and they told me I could not have a late check out after paying about $70 short of $1000 for room for two days and they repeatedly called my room every 5 to 10 minutes asked me what I was going to leave so I had to hurry up and pack up my sick child because I was 30 minutes late on checking out and while I was using the restroom and they used her card after I told her not to come in the door they knocked on the door every five minutes it was not good experience and I will never go back. It was not.

  • Nov 17, 2018 by daniel choe

    Great hotel! Has a staircase that takes you down the beach. It's about 5 a minute drive to the local restaurants and 10 minutes to the ATV rentals. Clean spacious room.

  • Nov 14, 2018 by Corrinne B.

    We came to Pismo beach on the spur of the moment and stayed at sea crest oceanfront hotel. We got our tickets off hotels.com and Phil took great care of us at the front desk. He was very welcoming and had a great attitude. He did everything he could to make us feel welcomed. The hotel itself was extremely clean and we had an absolutely amazing view of the ocean. Unfortunately we only had one night to stay because of other obligations. And we would highly recommend the hotel. We can't wait to come back for another stay with Phil's Great hospitality and amazing attitude

  • Nov 11, 2018 by Brenda Gordon

    Listen to the sound of waves from your room. Employees are friendly and a call away. Beautiful views and a very good restaurant next door. Stairs to the beach and easy walk to the pier. Loved our stay!!

  • Nov 10, 2018 by Jessica F.

    My sister and I traveled to Pismo for a quick get-away from the Bay Area and opted to stay here. We were traveling with my pup and this is a dog-friendly hotel for an extra $100 fee. The property was nice and had great access to the beach. I'm unsure if all dog-friendly rooms are on the same floor, but we were placed on a floor below the main level, which had a basement feeling. It also seemed to serve as their back of house as their service area was located here. It was dark and not a welcoming feeling. The positive is that our bedroom had a sliding glass door which opened to the main grass area so it was easy to take the pup outside. They have a free breakfast, which we stopped by in the AM, but it was a huge line and there was a super small room that had the breakfast. Not sure if waiting in the line was worth the time. All-in-all, it was a decent hotel, but for $400+/night, not sure I would stay here again.

  • Nov 09, 2018 by Jessica G.

    I was there for a wedding with my daughter. I ran into a friend in the lobby while they were checking in to their room.  A gentleman by the name of Philip was assisting them and I was lucky enough to get home too!  After the check in he had told me that my room was an inside room etc... after telling him that my daughter and I were so excited to stay at the hotel and we had gotten a great deal on hotwire, he told my daughter she could pick out an ice cream, upgraded my room so that we were overlooking the water and 4 doors down from my friend, and brought me up a bottle of wine.  He was so friendly and kind as was the rest of the staff. The rooms were great the view unbelievable and I am so grateful we go to stay there!  I can't wait to take all three of my kids to Pismo Beach. We will stay there again! Thank you Philip for making our trip extra special.

  • Nov 08, 2018 by Marie S.

    We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place. The view is out of this world. Beach is accessible  in many ways . Loved the stair way to the beach for a beautiful walk . Gorgeous sunset from every which way. Out door set up is very cozy and picturesque. Will surely come back .

  • Oct 30, 2018 by Ann R.

    I want to thank Christina, Kosha, Danielle, and Cynthia once again for making our stay feel like we were at home. The service here was amazing. They all treated us as we were long friends and never called us by a "room number". I have never been to a place such as beautiful as this place was. The views are amazing and the weather was just right! They have a heated pool which makes it convenient because the ocean water was really cold. We were originally in a room with no view but we got upgraded to a suite called the "family suite". The views from our balcony was breath taking. I would really recommend this hotel once again for anyone traveling with family or a large group. My family and I will be back!

  • Oct 24, 2018 by Tammy B.

    We checked in on a Sunday and had to wait for our room due to the hotel having a high turnover. when our room was finally done we checked in with a man who rushed through the check in process. I had to come back and ask multiple times where my room was because I could not find the entrance to the north tower and was brushed off because he was helping another guest. (which I understand). The views were amazing and rest of the staff was great. when we ordered their beer and wine delivery service it was delivered promptly.Over all my experience was great and would come back now that I got the hang of things!

  • Oct 21, 2018 by Paula M.

    My family and I love this hotel. The staff is always really welcoming and friendly and the atmosphere is so relaxing. The rooms are spacious and really clean and the views are to die for. The hotel uses the outdoor space so beautifully so that there are many opportunities to take in the magnificent views. I recommend this hotel for a family vacation or a couples getaway.

  • Oct 20, 2018 by Evelyn Chen

    Great hotel that accommodates our dog. Love the direct access to the beach. Have been for years and will be continue to come here. Was engaged here. Just brought our newborn here for the first time. Only thing is that we have seen a steady increase in pricing compared to the first time we came. But I'm guessing that's just how it is around here now. I wish they had a program that rewards their return guests though.

  • Oct 20, 2018 by Mary W.

    This is a great property. My boyfriend I have had the best time here this weekend. Philip was wonderful and up graded is to a spectacular room. We will definitely stay here again thank you all for your hospitality. Danny and Mary

  • Oct 19, 2018 by Elizabeth C.

    Awesome location!  Beautiful views of the ocean from our room.  Pet friendly which was a huge plus for us.  Willow restaurant and lounge was very convenient for us to grab some drinks and walk to our hotel.

  • Oct 19, 2018 by Donna C.

    Our room had a patio with the ocean view and it's really nice. I didn't expect that we will be getting a room with a view still. I like this hotel because it's so quite and you can hear the waves of the ocean at night. It's so peaceful.

  • Oct 18, 2018 by Jazmin R.

    To be really honest the website photos gives an impression that the rooms and the hotel its self is resort style and for the price of the room one would expect that. Guest room was severely outdated it looked dirty the bay window seating was atrocious it was stained and really broken down. The bed frame was old and dirty you could see the dust trail surrounding it. The spa bathtub was stained with a ring of film and old water stains. It was not enticing for us to go in. It was one of the features that attracted us to the room. The bathroom old, stained  and outdated. The cleaning of the room was not even enough to notice they made the bed only it looked like they didn't replenish many things. It looked like it was an after thought. They left sand and dust on furniture. This was some of the worst housekeeping I have ever seen. I rarely feel ripped off when we stay at other hotels for the price they were charging. I definitely felt very ripped off staying at the Seacrest. We felt like it was an slightly upgraded motel 6. The room was right next to the sea walk which was very annoying and disruptive to quality relaxation it was on the second floor we could hear stomping from the top and bottom floors. The only thing that was good was the view. Pictures are deceiving. It is not what you see or think.

  • Oct 17, 2018 by Melissa G.

    My husband and I have stayed here twice before and it is a very nice hotel, however, their attitude and poor business practices have caused us to take our business elsewhere.  It is extremely overpriced and definitely not worth the cost.  Here is why we have decided to stay elsewhere.   We were hoping to book a long weekend at the Seacrest as a last little getaway before our baby arrives.  When we looked at the prices online, a Deluxe Ocean Front King Room costs $275.10 a night if you book it Saturday through Tuesday (3 nights total).  The same room is $197.10 a night if you book it Sunday through Tuesday (2 nights total).  Now, I am familiar with hotels charging different rates for different seasons or nights of the week, but here is what is not acceptable.  They will not honor the lower price for Sunday and Monday, charging us the higher price for only Saturday because they claim that weekends fill up first.  Yes, that may be true, but if we only book Sunday and Monday, they can only offer someone our same room for Saturday night.  At every other hotel we've ever stayed at (and we have stayed at some nice hotels), the prices were associated with the day and the only time a longer stay changed your nightly rate is when it lowered it.  Essentially, by adding a night to our stay, they wanted to charge us an extra $156 on top of the cost of the extra night.   I spoke with Willow on the phone and she was very condescending, speaking to me as though I don't understand how hotel prices work.  While this hotel is certainly nice, it is not worth an extra $156 just because someone can't update their online computer program to have different prices on different nights of the week within a single stay.  The first time we stayed, it was awesome.  The second time we stayed, it was awesome though the prices had gone up too much.  This is unreasonable though, so sadly, we will not be staying again.  We do not feel valued as returning customers.

  • Oct 16, 2018 by Glenn Guiao

    The location is not far from the Downtown Pismo Beach. There are steps down from the edge of the cliff, built in between large boulders that will take you down to the beach. It's about a fifteen minute walk to Downtown. The room I stayed in was a ocean view king size bed on the first floor. Which literally takes you into their large grassy area. From the room itself shows the beautiful ocean and large Palm trees themselves which I find calming. The waves don't make a lot of noise which I also prefer. The only negative about this place is even how far you are from the road, you can still hear the cars driving past. One way you can probably solve this is a bushy barrier. Other than that, the staff was very kind and polite. I'm not 1 hundred percent sure but Stephanie recommended me a restaurant which I followed up and was happy with it.

  • Oct 04, 2018 by Heidi M.

    We have stayed here a few times when visiting our son at Cal Poly.  Prices are on par with neighboring motel/hotels.   Staff is very friendly.  A good spot to stay if you are looking for beautiful views.  There is plenty of parking, walking distance to a few dinner spots.  Free breakfast, BBQ area and rooftop deck with nice chairs and gas fir pits. Right on the beach with direct access. Free bikes too.

  • Sep 28, 2018 by Ala'a Tolba

    This is a very overpriced hotel. Their “breakfast” contains no hot foods (like scrambled eggs). It’s all bakery items and bagels, coffee, etc. Very disappointing. They do have direct access to the beach, but the beach is gross AF and it’s a LOT of stairs. There is seaweed all over the beach, dead birds, rotten food. It’s gross.
    The hotel has a jacuzzi which was nice but it had people all over it. On the plus side, there is a mini fridge and microwave in the room.
    Photos reflect a beachfront king room. (Notice there is the pool and stuff in front of the actual ocean)

  • Sep 26, 2018 by David V.

    For my first time in Pismo beach I have to say I was pleased, I couldn't believe how friendly the staff was, from Cynthia at the front desk to a man who delivered our extra towels with a smile (rayngel?). this place is worth the $$$.

  • Sep 25, 2018 by Raj S.

    This is our "go-to" destination when we visit family in Fresno. We came to celebrate my mom's 75th birthday and from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out was perfection, the only issue was the heater but Daniel was very helpful and compensated us appropriately. Thank you Seacrest for making this milestone so memorable for my mom.

  • Sep 23, 2018 by TheProfessor F.

    We paid $300 for a King room. Although clean, it wasn't worth that much. All the rooms are next to the parking lot and there are people mingling behind the room as well. That being said, I will state that there wasn't a lot of noise during the night.  The fart fan in the bathroom didn't work, which I think should have been addressed. The front desk was very professional and friendly.   I'd say if the prices were reduced significantly, it would be a good value. Right now, I can just say that is typical of what you get at the coast these days........an overpriced old room next to a parking lot. Imagine a Motel 6 with some lipstick. The views of the ocean are great, but the fog prevented anyone from seeing the ocean. That isn't the fault of the motel, however.

    What an amazing view of Pismo Beach! When they say ocean front, they mean it! Our check in girl(I can't remember her name) was very professional and friendly! Our 1st floor oceanFront room had a priceless view of Pismo Beach. We can walk right on to the cliff rail.. then down the step to the beach... watched an amazing ocean sunset. We will definitely be coming back here since one of our kids is attending Cal Poly!

    SeaCrest impressed me, even on a budget. And when we talk budget, we already know that a coastal hotel, that is literally at the cliff off the beach, is going to be expensive.  At $279/night, our total stay, with fees etc. came to $630.  Divided by 4 people, it came out just right. First off, the Hotel is split into 2 segments, the central, the north and the south towers.  The Central, where check in is, has 2 floors, while the north and south towers have (4) floors I believe.  We were on the 2nd, and to save money, we passed on the view (which was gorgeous from the center/pool area) and instead had a view of the parking lot. Very efficient to get to and from the car though. Rooms are decently clean (you could see the age in the walls, the furniture, and corners of the bathroom etc.), beds were comfortable enough, showers worked well, and DIRECT TV in all rooms.  Not that you should be staying inside and watching TV, but the option is nice.  Mini-fridge and freezer probably were on it's last leg, as it took over-night to cool our drinks on the lowest setting. (but hey, functional!). They had a microwave which helped with the leftovers...  Each room has a balcony, of which I bet the ones that overlook the coast are of far greater use.  Free WIFI, however its pretty slow (as expected, you are splitting with the entire compound) We just used our 4G LTE. Service was great too from check in, to the Maids who cleaned our rooms.  They were so nice, and accommodating to us swapping back and forth between rooms while they cleaned, as we waited for our event. Check in was simple, continental breakfast in the morning, cookies in the afternoon, nice pool, nice "chilling" area with gel fire places.... the seats could have used a good washing, but maybe we were on the off day. Willow, a surprisingly large restaurant, shares the parking lot with the hotel, and is worth it to drop by and grab some food and drinks during happy hour. All in all, I'd stay here again if I had the option.

    We checked in the Monday before Labor Day weekend.  The Hotel Clerk (Cristina) verified our 5-night stay, and my wife said we were on our honeymoon.  Cristina upgraded us to "Ocean View" on South Tower.  What a gorgeous view!  The suite was big and roomy with nice balcony. There was some noise with guests above us, and maintenance crew trimming bushes (one day).  We were close to beach access, pool and spas. The Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful throughout our stay.  We received a $10 a day comp on wine and drinks, which we didn't use.  However, we skipped a day on cleaning, and the cleaning staff gave us a $10 VIP comp which I used toward a SeaCrest T-Shirt.

    This is a beautiful hotel from the outside and the views of the beach and coast for the king rooms are spectacular. The staff is also very attentive and friendly. The fire pits and outside area are very nice too. I'm giving this place 3 and not 5 stars because of a few issues we had with the room. 1. The water pressure in the sink and the shower were really bad. 2. The furniture in the room needs to be re-upholstered. The couches and the leather next to the Bay window are pretty worn out. 3. The tv remote sucks. You can only change the channel if you're standing right in front of the tv which was kind of a nuisance. 4. The hotel needs a bar or small restaurant, there's nothing to eat but the continental breakfast and there's and if you want a drink bring your own. For what you pay here, you'd be expecting a bit more. With a few upgrades this place would be amazing.

    Beautifully located over a cliff overlooking the ocean. Ocean view from every room. Walk down a pathway to the beach. Heated pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast was awesome with choice from oatmeal, various breads, eggs, cereal, fruits and tea, coffee. It gets crowded during breakfast time....we had to take it to the room. Go early to avoid the crowd and get a good fireplace table. lovely place to stay with kids....... might plan another trip with family. Tip book early on for better rates ...

    Beautiful view of the ocean and Pismo pier from the room. You can hear the waves gently crashing in to the shore all night long. Very easy access to the beach from the hotel via a flight of 99 steps. The hotel has also provide for a fresh water shower at the top of the stairs to clean off the sand before getting in to the hotel, which is very thoughtful.

  • Sep 03, 2018 by L N.

    Perfect in every way. Staff is welcoming  and friendly. Hotel is just beautiful and the views are priceless. Just there over Labor day and was able to watch whales playing in the ocean from the balcony of my room while I had coffee. Great breakfast and very conveniently located. I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go. Beautiful Hotel - was sad to leave - hope to go back sometime soon. Pismo Beach  is a must visit place and SeaCrest is the  place to stay.

  • Aug 31, 2018 by Linda S.

    Great place to stay close to beach, although no direct beach access and no handicap acccess. Special dog room available which includes doggie beds and food and water bowls.

  • Aug 28, 2018 by Anonymous P.

    The rooms are clean. When you go out the back door, it looks like paradise, my dream life. Rachel, the blonde lady with glasses is a very helpful and kind, sweet lady. She helped us check into our room and was very kind. She even helped us with the wifi and taught us how to use the wifi :) jedidiah is also a very great manager, he's very kind. Rachel and Jedidiah if you both are reading this, I want you to know, you guys are amazing employees and I hope you continue to work at Seacrest Hotel :) The breakfast is really good. Recommend it. The bathroom is very nice. The beds are well made. I love this hotel, I definitely recommend this hotel :)

  • Aug 27, 2018 by Amanda Casale

    Loved it! Friendly staff, Cozy fire pits with comfortable chairs and a free Continental Breakfast. Room was spacious, private terrace with chairs. Walk down to the beach was close less than 100 stairs, and we could hear the waves from our room. 24hr coffee and Coco. The water pressure in the shower was so nice. The sheets smelled so clean and we're crisp, super comfy blankets and pillows. Restaurant in the same parking lot that has good food is convenient. We'll be back!

  • Aug 27, 2018 by Ravi S.

    Great service and our room was very comfortable. Many outlets and some usb ports so charging all my professional grade photography equipment was easy. Directv, a/c, etc. All the stuff you would cone to Expedia from a resort.  Most importantly, excellent beach views and access!  The pool and patio area was amazing too.  Free breakfast! Fueled up and enjoyed the day right when we woke up each morning!  Great restaurant right next door.  We never needed to leave the resort because everything we needed was right there, and then we were able to maximize our time on the beach!

  • Aug 21, 2018 by Sammie C.

    Wonderful hotel with beautiful ocean views and a staircase to the beach. Hotel was very, very clean and the room was great. We had a second floor room with an entire balcony that over looked the Pacific. This hotel looks like most hotels from the street, but it was very nice. They have free bike rentals and the restaurant, Willows, which is located right at the top of the driveway was excellent. Staff was very nice and the hotel had a very laid back feeling to it. There are several fire pits near the pool and the grounds were very well taken care of. Pismo Hotels are far from cheap, but this one was worth every single penny. We will definitely be staying here again.

  • Aug 20, 2018 by Jamie G.

    My wife and were very impressed with this hotel. We decided to go on a road trip up highway 1 and not make any hotel reservations in advance. We drove by this hotel and decided to stay here. WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE! this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. From the moment you walk in, the personnel treats you with a smile on their faces and explain how to truly enjoy this place.  Our room face the ocean and it was awesome to hear that waves throughout the nite. The rooms are very modern and lots of amenities such as free  bottle of waters. Popcorn etc. There are several fire pits, pool, jacuzy and they have an awesome breakfast service at no extra charge. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE !!

  • Aug 18, 2018 by Mario Cerna

    Absolutely loved staying here. The hotel has so many little perks that you don't really think about until you're there enjoying them. Fresh baked cookies everyday from 3-5, credit that can be used to purchase alcohol if you skip the daily cleaning of your room, board games to play with the family when you want to enjoy the rooftop terrace. The hotel is situated right in a cliff that provides access to the beach but if you'd rather spend the day in the heated pool or hot tubs, they got you covered there too. They are only about a 10 min drive to the Oceano dunes where you an drive directly on to the beach to enjoy your day. We can't wait to come back to Pismo Beach and will absolutely be staying here at SeaCrest.

  • Aug 17, 2018 by Caromar S.

    Wonderful hotel right on the ocean.  Very clean, beautiful location, grills for grilling, lovely pool, hot tub, and fire pits to sit around in evening or while you eat breakfast.  The breakfast was one of the best we have had.  Look forward to returning.  View is spectacular!

  • Aug 17, 2018 by Shari A.

    Awesome hotel for our first visit to Pismo! The check front desk clerk was friendly and welcoming! The room was perfect. The hotel accommodated our late check in and our late checkout request. I wish there were coffee stirrers in our room .. a small petty thing. I wish wish wish we had more than just one night there! The only bummer was the service we received at their adjoining restaurant the Willow which was absolutely a put off and a bad first impression. But everything else at the hotel was tip top! We will absolutely be back! Very friendly hotel staff

  • Aug 12, 2018 by Justin Huebner

    Great Sea side hotel. There is steps down to the beach and a roof top terrace. The breakfast is above average with a great views while you are eating. There was fog when we stayed, but I'm sure the sunset would be great it you had a clear day.

  • Aug 12, 2018 by Kodiak Wolfe

    Amazing view of the ocean, especially at night, this hotel truly lives up to its own price! On top of this, the breakfast is not too shabby but free, helping the price look even better. The beach is easily accessible to anyone wishing to relax on the shoreline. Highly recommended!

  • Aug 08, 2018 by Carl Christopher

    Nice big property with great views all around. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Room are nice with all modern amenities even including an iPhone iHome clock radio. Loved our stay... will definitely go back !!!

  • Aug 04, 2018 by Victoria M.

    Extremely disappointed! Booked ocean view room and all I have is a view of grass, pool, and bbq pits. Lots of people walking right past my sliding door so I can't even leave the blinds open. Bed is not comfortable. Furniture is old. And bathroom is horrible. I think they put us in an ADA room. Wanted a romantic weekend for my birthday and I am so upset with this room. Completely ruining my birthday weekend celebration. Front desk says there are no other rooms available but I just tried to book online and there was a kind coastal view available for both nights I'm here. I hate when people lie!

  • Jul 30, 2018 by Tracy A.

    The hotel couldn't be in a better location.  There is 24/7 beach access and amazing ocean views!  Check in was quick and easy with friendly staff.  Stayed in room 248 of the south tower.  It's a corner room which has a private balcony facing the ocean/beach and a great corner nook with a seat with direct ocean views.  The downside to the hotel is the breakfast room.  It is way to small for the size of the hotel.  The line to get into the breakfast room snakes around the hotel.  I would recommend just going out to breakfast while staying here.  The beds are comfy and the hotel is quiet.  The hotel grounds are very nice.  I would stay again.

  • Jul 26, 2018 by Becca L.

    I stayed at this hotel for a girls weekend in Pismo. Seriously exceeded ALL my expectations I could ever have in a hotel. The location is prime and worth every penny. We could literally walk down to the beach from the hotel. There are rooms that face the beach directly. The patio seating area is beautiful to sit and watch the sunset too.

  • Jul 20, 2018 by Jon Carnes

    Very nice place with a solid view of the ocean. Beach access was a plus and provided a nice stroll (under a mile) to the pier. Breakfast was standard continental (bagels, muffins, fruit, oatmeal, etc.). The top terrace was lovely for watching the sunset and overall relaxing. Don't forget to nab a freshly baked cookie when you check in!

  • Jul 20, 2018 by Caryn L.

    Can't wait to come back for another stay! Great place directly on one of the most beautiful beaches in the hamptons.  Go for one of the second floor ocean-view rooms.  Mine was bright (sun flooded actually) and clean and had a deck overlooking the dunes.  Place has a great low-key vibe and the people who work here were very nice.  I can't understand how this place has any bad reviews.  My experience was all good!

  • Jul 18, 2018 by S B.

    We came to relax, my adult daughter and I. We missed reading how very family friendly this place is. Dogs, kids, grandparents. Couldn't get around the fire pits because a family was at each one. Kids running and cannon balling in the pool all day long. They are cute, but we only found solitude hot tube secluded to the right side the second day of our visit. Just be prepared.... it is VERY family friendly. We did come in the summer time! Staff is awesome!! Smiling and helpful. Location is perfect.

  • Jul 16, 2018 by Jeanne Aspenson

    Great hotel!! So glad we stumbled across this driving up the coast. Tons of amenities that are important to me. Great sleeping beds with plenty of pillows, real wine glasses, not plastic! A couple free bottled water, great dark coffee in the room for my early morning fix. Great views. Fabulous fire pit, actually a few. Three hot tubs. Outdoor grills. Nice towels, magnified mirror in bathrooms. I haven’t even gotten to breakfast yet, so will have to leave that out. Don’t let the outside deceive you. I’m guessing this is an older hotel that has been remodeled. They’ve done a fabulous job and have all of the extra perks! Great stay!

  • Jul 15, 2018 by Diane L.

    When visiting Pismo Beach we will always stay at the Seacrest Hotel!!  Everyone on staff, beginning with the women at the Reception Counter, to the Housekeeping Staff, to the Maintenance Staff and any others I may have overlooked, were so friendly and nice.  We were always greeted with a Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening or a friendly Hello.  The buildings and grounds were all well kept and spotless!!  The breakfast bar had a wide variety of cereals, breads, oatmeal, pastries, fresh fruit and beverages. In the afternoon they had fresh baked cookies!!  We highly recommend Seacrest and we will only stay at Seacrest when visiting Pismo Beach!!

  • Jul 14, 2018 by Aubriel R.

    We had originally planned for a week long stay at the SeaCrest Oceanfront hotel. At check in we realized that that was too long to stay. The front desk worker looked at our reservation and said "wow you guys are with us for a whole week, that's a long time". We quickly realized that this hotel is typical for a long weekend type stay. We ended up changing our reservation to a 3 night stay (my son ended up developing a pretty significant ear infection) and the staff was thankfully able to accommodate that change. Special shout out to front desk supervisor Christina who went the extra mile and helped us! We originally booked a king ocean view room but we were lucky enough to upgrade to a deluxe room which was amazing!!! The hotel was really nice. Every staff member was friendly! The breakfast is ok, it was your standard hotel breakfast (waffles, bagels, pastries, juice, yogurt and coffee). The lobby has hot tea and coffee 24/7 which was nice. This hotel also offers beach access but beware of the sand flies! They aren't bitting sand flies but they are a nuisance to the point where we hung out mostly by the pool. My three biggest complaints are (1) there are not enough common areas- there's a roof top deck, spa area and pool area along with some fire pits but that's about it. And (2) the pool closes at 8:30pm and they are pretty strict about that. (3) the sound proofing isn't that great, we could hear people walking in the room above us and we weren't constantly asking our kids to be quiet in fear of disturbing our neighbors. This hotel is very friendly which was great (you can rent board games and bikes from the lobby) and pet friendly rooms are available. All and all we would definitely stay again!

  • Jul 10, 2018 by R M.

    I have been coming to Pismo Beach for almost ten years and the Seacrest exvlusively for almost two years now, mostly for business but also for pleasure. The atmosphere and location can't be beat - you are literally right on the beach! The rooms are well appointed and very clean and quiet. The pool area has BBQs and multiple hot tubs. The topper though is the staff. They are such nice people that really make you feel welcome and appreciated. From Christina and Rachel to Karlee, John and Danielle this group is the best! I have stayed at a lot of the Pismo area hotels and this is easily the one I recommend.

  • Jul 08, 2018 by Wil C.

    It is a great pleasure to write this detailed review of the SeaCrest Ocean Front Hotel.  So far, I have stayed in 3 different hotels at Pismo Beach.  From a customer service standpoint, the SeaCrest is the best of all of the hotels that I've stayed in at Pismo Beach.  My visits to Pismo is usually due to business.  The last time work brought me to Pismo, I had a nice experience at the SeaCrest which is the reason why I chose to introduce Pismo Beach to my family with us staying overnight at the SeaCrest Hotel this month of July 2018.  The gentleman who spoke with me over the phone was thorough and very helpful as I was trying to decide which room to reserve a few weeks ago.  Upon arriving on Thursday, 07/05/18, we were welcomed by two smiling faces who were the ladies on-duty behind the front desk counter.  The wonderful hotel representative who helped us was named Cynthia.  She was kind enough to review with me the special requests that I made when I initially reserved our Double Queen Bed Ocean Front Deluxe Room.  We wanted to have a patio facing the ocean and she told me that she will do her best to make it happen.  However, she mentioned that she could not guarantee me anything.  I appreciated her candor.  We arrived quite early on our check-in day which prompted me to request for an early check-in time.  At the time of our arrival, Cynthia could not check us in yet because the rooms were still being cleaned.  However, within 20 minutes of our arrival, Cynthia called me back to inform me that she could finally check us in early.  To top it off, Cynthia made sure to fulfill all of the requests that I made which I am very thankful for.  Even though we stayed only 1 night, my family and I had a nice and memorable time.  It gave me a much needed relaxing and rejuvenating experience.  We enjoyed using various features that the SeaCrest offered such as the heated swimming pool, jacuzzis, ocean front fire pit lounge area, special room beverage credit, beach access stairway, and our ocean front private patio where we were able to sit back / relax / watch and take pictures of the amazing sunset.  The nice gentleman (Phil?) at the front desk, who was on-duty during the late afternoon - early evening hours during our stay, was another SeaCrest employee whose kindness I appreciated.  The next day, it was sad for us to go because it felt like saying goodbye to friends.  Cynthia was on-duty again behind the front desk and her top-notch customer service skills continued to shine.  She said farewell to us the same way she welcomed us...With a smile and a type of personality that makes you feel that you've been friends with her for a long time!  Many thanks to her hospitality and professionalism, we will definitely return to the SeaCrest in the future.  Finally, as we were getting ready to depart outside of the hotel lobby, one of the other nice SeaCrest employees (Marina Ortiz), who was working at the breakfast area, approached my wife to invite her to wait for me at a much more comfortable area near the lobby area.  Before we left the parking lot, Marina also happily gave us directions to send us to the best route to access the freeway.  In a nutshell, the stellar customer service that we received from various SeaCrest employees (especially Cynthia & Marina) makes this hotel our number one choice now.  It may not be one of the newest or fanciest hotels in the area, however, the SeaCrest employees and the hotel's nice amenities makes this hotel to be an ideal place to stay at if one cares for things such as excellent customer service, free parking / WiFi, easy beach access, 10 - 15 minute walks to downtown Pismo, great views, etc.  THANK YOU Cynthia, Marina, and the rest of the SeaCrest Hotel team for making our stay an unforgettable one!

    Cute little hotel. The rooms are simple, nothing fancy. But if you're vacationing at Pismo Beach, then there's no need to stay in your hotel anyways! One thing that was annoying was that the hotel keys would constantly get de-magnetized. Our room was on the second floor so it was very annoying to go up the stairs to our room just to have to go back down to the office to get our keys reset. View from the room is gorgeous though! And the beach is just right there. Would stay here again!

  • Jun 30, 2018 by J Skioban

    This place is amazing. Christina was super friendly and helpful, all staff was nice and made sure you had what you needed. Very professional. Great breakfast, awesome pool, private entrance to the beach. What more could you ask for! Will definitely be coming back!!!

  • Jun 30, 2018 by Luis Mendoza

    The hotel is conveniently located by the beach and has its own beach access. The signature deluxe queen suite was perfect with an ocean view. However, the queen dog friendly room faced a metal fence and seemed to be located in a basement floor. But it turns out to be the first floor because it has outdoor access to the pool from the backside. Overall, we had a good time.

  • Jun 26, 2018 by Kelly Z.

    I struggled to come up with how many stars to give this place, and I guess it depends on what you're looking for. The property is amazing-the room was amazing! We stayed in a Spa Deluxe room with a jacuzzi so it was incredible! We were looking for a romantic getaway, and this was definitely not the place for that. Sooooooo many kids!! And our room was on the ground floor on the north corner of the building, and apparently all of the neighboring hotels use the walkway that goes right by the room to get to the beach access. So at all hours there is people walking by! Lots of people and lots of kids playing. Kids are great and all, just not on a romantic getaway. There's 3 jacuzzis-I wish they would make 1 of them adults only because they were all packed with kids the entire time! So, I decided to give 4 stars because you can't fault a place for being that busy, and for being kid friendly, just wish I would've known before spending that much money on a "romantic getaway" that felt more like I was at Disney Land. But the property is amazing, the views are amazing, and the room was amazing! Oh, and as you see in the pictures, there was even a cute little duck family passing by on the patio! So, great bird watching spot

  • Jun 25, 2018 by Christine G.

    The view and room was fine, keys to room hardly worked, frustrating! Coffee maker leaks all over!  Pet friendly but they told us at check in 'no pets allowed'! Hum

  • Jun 25, 2018 by Chris G.

    We spent the weekend in Pismo for a wedding.  There are several hotels/motels on the ocean in Pismo, so do your research, but we wanted to stay with all our family who was staying here.   Hotel has plenty of parking and I don't think any rooms have a bad view.  BUT, we should have spent more time on the balcony, we paid for an ocean view, total cost was $513.99.  The price includes internet and a continental breakfast.  We were never told what time the breakfast ended, so when we got there at 10:15 we were very disappointed, breakfast ended at 10!  UGH.  The overall room is okay (B grade), you get a fridge, coffee machine, and some basic bathroom amenities, nothing overly luxurious.  The bathroom is standard with a plastic shower basin which flexes when you stand in it, cookie cutter standard room. Don't get too comfortable in your room the day of checkout, you need to be gone by 11am, which is a tad on the early side for my liking.  The hotel was clean and the property is nicely perched above the ocean with beautiful sweeping views up and down the coast.  They also have a decent pool and jacuzzi set-up, but, be prepared for a lot of screaming kids.  Another fun aspect is the beach access, they have stairs going down to the beach, which is always a great place to explore.     I was not a fan of the early morning ocean smell, which was really fishy, but it is the ocean after all.  Relative to this area and the other properties, this looked to be as nice as any, BUT, at $500 my hopes were greater, simply put, no expectations were exceeded.

  • Jun 17, 2018 by Joshua Seifert

    Our weekend stay here has been amazing. The rooms are spacious and clean. Small little outdoor patio is nice to sit on. The pool and and spa look out over the ocean offering an amazing view for relaxation. Private beach access allows the guest to easily get to the beach for nice walks. All in all would come again in a heartbeat.

  • Jun 15, 2018 by Nicole H.

    Went for the first time for one night. Really enjoyed the location, view, and hospitality from the staff. Since the room was a little outdated the carpet & tub kinda gives you a dirty feel, but it was mainly just the normal wear and tare on the carpet, tub, cushions, etc. All the staff whom we would cross paths with were very nice. The pool is very small. Great for the kiddos but not enough room to be comfortable swimming around in with other people. The grounds were always kept neatly & clean. Breakfast was very good. You can't beat the view and location.  We will definitely be back soon!

  • Jun 14, 2018 by Hans Poschman

    I love visiting the SeaCrest. I have visited for events, and also stayed the night. They recently added a restaurant, Willow. The rooms are great, but the outdoor space is even better with a great oceanfront grass and pool area. This is where I like to go for a staycation.

  • Jun 10, 2018 by Ty-Rone M

    Son graduated from high school...Staycation...wonderful all around excellent customer service...excellence staff...excellent view from room..Enjoyed my stay and family especially wife...enjoyed the stay...Most definitely will stay again and recommend too all...Chose over The Cliff...Love it

    Lovely location, nice stroll along the beach to shops, restaurants & bars. And added bonus we timed our visit by luck at the time of the car rally. Very friendly & helpful staf, wish we’d been able to stay longer.

  • Jun 09, 2018 by 175charle...

    Great ocean views That's all. Doors slamming all day and night made our stay not worth repeating. We could hear normal conversations next door. Over priced. Limited storage/closet space. As a result We do not recommend this hotel.

  • Jun 08, 2018 by Rashele Shoun

    This hotel is pretty awesome! It gets a bit pricey but you only live once right? I would say if I get the chance to come back to this beach I'll be back. This was definitely one of those once in a lifetime moments for a girl from Oklahoma. Beautiful views!! Cute hotel! I'd prefer more classy colors but orange is cute! It was worth the money! Great experience! Really fun walk to the beach. Check out my photos to see exactly what it will look like.

  • Jun 07, 2018 by kathrynd4...

    I stayed at this hotel for one night while on a road trip with my sister. We were greeted with a friendly and helpful staff. Since we arrived early and our room wasn't ready, they gave us a room key to get a discount at their newly opened restaurant and invited us to enjoy all of the amenities of the property. We decided to head to the beach which is down about 90 sturdy steps with a hand rail. It was a nice walk on the beach and you are able to walk to the pier and shops which is a nice plus. When we returned from our walk, we sat by the pool which is surrounded by plenty of loungers and chairs with tables. There are also a few fire pits and barbecue grills. There was a family barbecuing and I thought it's great to be able to do that on the property. We checked into out coastal room and decided it would be really nice to have a beach view. The staff was very accommodating and we were able to switch to a beach front room. Our room was clean and inviting. It had a refrigerator, microwave, 2 complimentary bottles of water, a small complimentary bag of popcorn, and Keurig coffee pot. There is a continental breakfast which included hard boiled eggs, cereal, muffins, pastries, oatmeal, waffles, toast, bagels, a variety of fruit, coffee, tea, juices, hot chocolate, and yogurt. Our check out was quick and easy. We had no problem with splitting the invoice on two credit cards. I would definitely stay here again.

    The last two times we made a trip to San Luis Obispo we stayed at the SeaCrest Ocean Front Resort. Since we have a toddler we were never able to book the rooms that has straight direct view to the ocean as we exceed the 2 person guest max capacity. With that said we were able to get the partial ocean front room instead. The rooms here are decent. What we enjoy most about SeaCrest is the easy access to the beach. It is with in the hotel. All you need to do is walk down the stairs case that located in the front of resort. The view is amazing and having easy access to the beach for some play time for our little guy is awesome. The location of the hotel provides short drive to downtown SLO, splash for great clam chowder and our favorite family own Italian Restaurant Rosie's. We would stay at this hotel again due to the great view, location and easy access to the beach. The hotel also offers basic complimentary breakfast.

  • Jun 04, 2018 by Anna C.

    Beautiful location!  Lots of seating with fire pits all along the path to the beach.  Our room was nice and spacious, with in room coffee!  The breakfast buffet was a nice bonus.  Nothing like eating outdoors with an ocean view.  Super friendly staff too.  My husband even commented as we walked away at how nice she was (Kosha?).  Would definitely stay again!

  • Jun 04, 2018 by prdypny

    We really enjoyed our stay in an oceanfront room in the main building. The view from the second floor was incredible, the room was very spacious and the staff is outstanding. The restaurant across the parking lot, Willow, is a must try. It was a very busy car show weekend so it was really easy to grab some food so close to our room. We ate there 4 times in 3 days and the food was amazing.

    Came up to visit Cal Poly with our 2 teenagers, we stayed in an oceanfront 2 queen deluxe room, which also had a sofa bed in the room. It was the perfect accommodation for all 4 of us. While the room is showing its age and wear and tear, it was clean and well stocked. Our room was on the ground floor and we had a patio that was oceanfront, which was a perfect place to sit and have coffee in the morning. In addition, it made for easy access to the pool area, the walkway to the beach, and to the firepits and patios. Every employee we encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. After a long day of touring the college it was so nice to come back and relax on the patio overlooking the ocean, while the kids swam. The free continental breakfast was much appreciated. The selection of fruit, cereals, pancakes, and pastries was just what my kids needed to start the day. This was truly one of the best weekend stays we have had. I highly recommend this hotel...we will certainly be back!

    Such a great hotel with beach access.  Comfortable  and spacious rooms.  Wonderful beach views and private balcony.  Pool and three jacuzzis.  This is my 2nd time staying there and will continue to come back!

    We had a great stay at the Seacrest! Absolutely beautiful views and comfortable room with our own private balcony. We will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!!

    First time for us in Pismo Beach opted for an ocean front hotel. beautiful view!! Free continental breakfast, nice sized comfortable rooms, EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE. The hotel is clean and easily accessible. They do provide beverage service as well. It was pretty quiet until our last 2 nights there when our neighbors decided to watch tv full blast at 230am!!  I finally had to call the front desk to ask them to turn it down after finally getting to bed at 330am, we were woken up yet again at 630 from the same neighbor.  (Would be nice if they tried to keep kids and families separate from couples to avoid the noise) Only a couple negatives here. The beds could be more comfortable and they don't provide room service if you wanted the have breakfast lunch or dinner in your room. That would be a huge asset. Although they have Willow restaurant (which is by the way an excellent choice) close by it's a bit of an inconvenience if you really just want to lounge. Overall I enjoyed our stay and the customer service is definitely out of this world!!

    Honestly the hotel it's self is nice. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Spa room and apparently there's rules to when you can and can not use your jets in your private room. I came to celebrate my birthday but instead I got falsely accuse of smoking in my room and then got disturb during our relax spa tub time by "complaints" and tried to tell me its on my contract that we can only use the jets in the spa at a certain time and there's also no sign near the spa tub in the room . I'm not sure if there were complaints or not I felt very uncomfortable and targeted because my boyfriend and I our mixed with African American . It's unfortunate that we had  experience racial prejudice on our first stay out here in Pismo Ca . I Don't recommend this hotel for young African Americans !

    The SeaCrest Inn is one of my favorite places in the central coast. I stayed here few years ago and I just came back for another week. The location is awesome, great views, friendly staff, amazing pool area and spa, few minutes drive to Downtown Pismo Beach.

    Looking for a weekend getaway? this is the place. The only reason it's not five starts (during this stay) it's because some rooms seem a little outdated but it seems they are being renovated, other than that, very nice place I will def go back.

  • May 20, 2018 by Michelle E.

    Let me first start by saying that I really do love this hotel BUT... on my most recent visit a change to the pool hours was made.  The pool and 2 of the 3 jacuzzis were closed at 8:30pm.  Which made the one jacuzzi opened PACKED.  Think 20 people in one smaller jacuzzi... no thank you.  We got back from dinner about 8:45 and wanted a soak, but we were not about to cram ourselves in with the rest of the hotel.  The room was great, the view was great, the grounds were great.... but cutting off the facilities so early is pretty disappointing. Especially with the cost of the room.  Not sure why the jacuzzi about 30 feet away was closed, but it is a poor business decision.  Hoping this will change.  I will for sure be checking the pool times before booking again.  Having the pool facilities is a priority to my family.

  • May 16, 2018 by Marianne F.

    Wanted a hotel near the ocean/beach. This was the perfect hotel, I looked around and this hotel had a stairway to the beach. It was perfect. I gave it 4/5 stars because I didn't really like the bathroom. It was small, but everything was perfect. AND THE PLUS SIDE IS THERE IS FREE BREAKFAST BUFFET. If I come back to pismo, I will be staying here. I've already told my family and friends.

  • May 11, 2018 by V Kitten

    This is a happy place for my husband and I, we've been coming here on and off for the last 13 years and we couldn't be more happy with it. Staff and guest alike are always friendly and in a good mood and who wouldn't be, the setting is so beautiful. Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the ocean is Magic. Getting up early, walking down the cliff stair path to the ocean, hearing the calmness of the early-morning water and seeing how remarkably beautiful it is breath taking. There's little caves and cliff rocks and the sand dollars! There are so many sand dollars it's amazing.
    If you're reading this you should just go you'll be pleased

  • May 08, 2018 by Aaron Nieradzik

    Lovely hotel on the beach! There is a stairway from the hotel down to the beach! Great, cozy rooms, at a great price! Delicious, complimentary breakfast is provided too! Of all the hotels in Pismo Beach I've stayed in, this is by far the best! I would 100% recommend this hotel!

  • May 07, 2018 by jane miller

    We love this hotel. It has family suites, a great pool area, BBQ area and fire pits, it has direct beach access, and many rooms with full ocean view. We have been coming here for the past 11 years and loved it every time. Close to many restaurants, shopping centers, grocery stores, gas stations, even antique stores.

  • May 05, 2018 by jag8386

    We were looking for something for just a couple of nights to get away from LA. This was a perfect choice. Great price for an ocean view, walk to beach and included a continental breakfast. Continental breakfast was adequate- coffee, juice, fresh fruit, bagels, muffins, hot/cold cereal, boiled eggs. Nice outdoor area to eat looking out over the pool but you have a view of the ocean as well. This is set back on a bluff overlooking the ocean BUT backs up to major highway 101. If you’re a light sleeper the sound of traffic is there. We couldn’t sleep with our slider open. I have a White Noise app on my phone and this was enough to muffle the traffic. I definitely could not have done this without the White Noise app or a sound machine. I am a light sleeper and the sound of huge tractor trailers and motorcycles woke me a couple of times but I was able to get back to sleep. My husband sleeps like a rock and it didn’t phase him. Customer service over the phone was very nice. We booked upon arrival because we weren’t sure what LA traffic was going to do and couldn’t risk not making it as we were past their cancellation time. Front desk personnel was extremely nice as well. Our room was nice size on the 2nd floor and clean. It was also equipped with a small refrigerator,microwave and Kuerig coffee maker. Bathroom was decent size with plenty of towels, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Balcony had chairs & small table that looked out over the pool and onto a view of the ocean. The one drawback to our room was that it was right over the front lobby. They start playing music at 8 AM that can definitely be heard in your room on the second story. It’s great rock ‘n’ roll but I really wanted to sleep in... so I recommend requesting a room away from the lobby area. If you choose not to have your room cleaned daily they give you a five dollar credit daily. This can be used for convenience items or ice cream. So for two days we had a $10 credit that we used for ice cream. Now granted the ice cream is six dollars per ice cream bar so plan on throwing in a couple of extra bucks. There’s a nice size pool and Jacuzzi Nice large pool towels are provided at the pool. Wonderful fire rings that are lit at night with comfy Adirondack chairs, you are on the bluff and can hear the waves crashing below. Every night we took a glass of wine and sat out there listening to the waves. Why they hung a bunch of string lights above this area is beyond me. To me it made it look a little tacky and was annoying from our balcony view at night. There are stairs that take you down to the beach. It’s a nice walk along the beach to the pier and to the downtown area. It’s a bit of a walk in the dark but a quick Uber ride to restaurants. There is a restaurant adjacent with a full bar. There is a barbecue area and bicycles for rent. Overall we had a great time, we recommend this and will be back!

  • May 02, 2018 by Cory K

    What a fantastic property! Appears recently renovated, beautiful rooms, fantastic breakfast (huge selection), pool and common areas are gorgeous. Numerous firepits that help create a magical nighttime ambiance. Staff is very friendly and helpful!

  • Apr 30, 2018 by Sandeep B

    Great views of ocean from the resort! Decent rooms and amenities! Pool and hot tub are great. I kinda feel like it's a little over priced for what you got though but that might have more to do with the location. Breakfast was adequate consisting of basic international breakfast

  • Apr 29, 2018 by Frograph

    We stopped here for the night whilst driving up the coast from LA to San Francisco. Starting with the good - the location! Right on the cliffs above the beach, with a set of steps heading down to the sand which we took advantage of straight after check-in. There was a nice balcony that meant we could enjoy a lovely view over the hotel grounds and Pacific. The room decor also appealed to my love of 70s style, with the cool wallpaper. The takeout from Willows restaurant was nice and convenient, breakfast a simple buffet that wasn't extravagant but did the job. One thing that stood out was the exceptional service from the gentleman on the front desk. We needed milk for the 2yr old and he suggested the shop a couple blocks away - but then offered to supply some milk from the hotel supplies to save us a trip. The only negative (and a fairly big one for us) was that the supplied crib was dirty. The bedding was clean but the top frame of the crib itself was filthy. A good wipe down during each service of the room would sort this out. This one thing is what made me offer a 3/5 rating - otherwise the hotel was 4/5.

  • Apr 29, 2018 by Jerry P

    Just wanted to get away for a couple of days and relax. The SeaCrest is just th right place to do just that. My compliments to the entire staff & management for operating a first class establishment. Thank You for a relaxing time.

  • Apr 27, 2018 by HfromMK

    Stayed for two nights during a fly drive down the PCH. Stunning location and staff were ultra friendly. You take your breakfast back to your room which we did not mind at all. Local restaurants are within walking distance. I also like the fact that improvements are being made even though that caused minor inconvenience during our stay. Great stop off on a fly drive. We would have liked to stay longer titan the two nights.

  • Apr 27, 2018 by Sheena Z.

    I have had one bad and one very good experience here but I will still like to stay here , I'll start with the good Went for me and my daughters birthday and we had a beautiful room with a great view of the ocean and the hot tub was awesome, the bad stay was when me and my daughter were trying to take a nap at about 12 someone tries to open our door and continued knocking but I was not able to get to the door fast enough and then nothing for another thirty minutes and the phone rang and I had my daughter asleep on my arm and couldn't get up to answer that and right after was a loud knock on the door again, the manager was there telling us we were supposed to be out of the room because we had only had the room reserved for one night but the reservation was clearly for two nights when my boyfriend booked the room, they looked puzzled at me and said never mind that it must have been their mistake, so me and my daughter were woke up time and time again because they had made a mistake in the office, we were never comped anything but they did apologize but it was such a inconvenience and my daughter had a rough day because of this. Even after all of it we stayed for my daughters birthday and it was very nice.

  • Apr 24, 2018 by Liz I.

    Beach access and the rooms are cozy. The refrigerator in our room didn't work so that was a bummer because we bought some refrigerated items.  They did offer to switch rooms but it was about midnight when we realized it didn't work and we're set up for the night. The fridge was hot so It must've been off for quite sometimes. Really good location for dining, beach, wine tasting etc.

  • Apr 24, 2018 by Jacquelin...

    My husband and I came for our wedding anniversary and a little baby moon. The hotel staff is very kind and accommodating, the rooms are cozy, pool is clean, the ocean view is beautiful and you have easy beach access. We loved that you can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast, warm cookies in the afternoon and very close drive (or walk) to the pier. Highly recommend this hotel and we will be back.

  • Apr 24, 2018 by Richard H.

    Unbelievable staff, always friendly and ready to extend a helpful hand. The room and grounds were outstanding, well manicured and clean as a whistle. Are stay at the Sea Crest was a memorial one indeed. Thanks to the outstanding staff. Rich & Nancy Hietbrink

  • Apr 22, 2018 by Maya H.

    Absolutely love this hotel! Amazing views and great amenities for a decent price. I love that they have grills on their patio where you can grill and eat while you are facing the water. I can't forget to mention that there's a beach access from the hotel patio. It makes it very convenient. Highly recommend this place!

  • Apr 22, 2018 by dandmboca

    Thank you SeaCrest for the amazing views and customer service! My husband and I loved the Anniversary card and special touches! The views from our room were breathtaking and we will be making this our yearly anniversary destination! Close enough to walk to shops and restaurants but far enough from the busy nightlife!!! We loved every minute!!! We highly recommend this hotel!!!

  • Apr 20, 2018 by elizabeth...

    Loved the fire pits. Cooked dinner on the grill each night. Soaked in the hot tub. Ocean view from room with balcony seating. Walked along beach into town with shops and restaurants. Family suite worked very well for my sister, husband, and me.

  • Apr 17, 2018 by jaxcqueli...

    The service at the sea crest hotel was absolutely outstanding. I will definitely be coming back the staff makes you feel as if your at home and the breakfast was good too. Enjoyed every minute of my stay.

  • Apr 16, 2018 by Brendtrav...

    We sprung for the signature deluxe king room, which has a sitting area that gives 180 degree views of the beach and ocean. It was amazing to be able to relax and watch the sunset in the comfort of our room. The hotel is also in a great spot with ample outdoor seating areas with fires and grills. Definitely recommend this place and you can spend a whole weekend just enjoying the location the hotel is on.

  • Apr 15, 2018 by Alejandro...

    First time staying there and it was awesome, already planning another trip to stay there in a couple of months.!! Room was nice size with mini fridge and microwave. I used the grill to bbq which was clean! Great view to the ocean everywhere you step. Fire pits were awesome at night. I didn’t use the pool but looked liked other guest were enjoying it.! Two min walk down to the beach if that.. with was great.!! Overall great experience with the staff as well, they were there to answer any questions and were very polite. Big thumbs up for that.!!

  • Apr 15, 2018 by anitabrit

    Love love love the Seacrest Hotel. We have been going there for 33 years! The only complaint is that the beds are so hard. I have to take a topper each time. But the staff are so friendly and helpful and the location is superb

  • Apr 15, 2018 by Jess M.

    This place has a very lovely view and nice rooms, though it can be quite expensive. What it lacks is good customer service. I recently stayed at the SeaCrest hotel and left my expensive watch on the bedside table due to a mix-up between my husband and I. We realized we had left it there when we were nearly home, but we had left early and so it was still early in the day. We were informed to not turn around (which would have added several hours to our trip), and the woman at the front desk, Christina, informed us that when the watch was found, it would be mailed to us, and we would be called back with an update further in the day. We called back two hours later after no update, and was informed that they still had not reached housekeeping for an update, and that they would still get back to us later. Several hours after this, we had still not heard back and decided to call again. After several minutes of being on hold, and being hung up on once whilst on hold, they informed us that no watch was found. This is not possible, as I distinctly remember where it was left and informed the staff in the morning exactly where it was. The hotel in general is nice, and the location is nice, but their ethics are  very questionable, and ruined the end of a nice birthday getaway. I do not see us booking here again.

  • Apr 14, 2018 by mikek1123

    We had a great time the service was fantastic everyone was so very helpful. The room was amazing we couldn't have been happier. The hotel was clean and the ground well kept. We will definitely be visiting again and telling our friend about our stay.

  • Apr 14, 2018 by Aaron O

    My wife, Golden Retriever & I stayed here while in Pismo to photograph a Wedding at a nearby venue. The view just can’t be beat. The beach access was simply wonderful. They had a shower for rinsing off outside & a hose to rinse our dog before going in the room after being on the beach. The pool area was very nice & they kept the glass around the pool & balconies very clean. They just opened their newly renovated lobby the day we checked out & it looks classy & modern. We hope they do the rooms next. Our room was spacious & clean, but it was dated & had carpet. Carpet & the beach don’t mix with it constantly getting wet & sandy. Friends staying at a nearby hotel had vinyl flooring which worked much better. The color scheme also made the room dark. Other hotels nearby seemed to have a terrible problem with seagulls & poop everywhere, but it seemed because of dogs being allowed here, that it keeps them away & the property much cleaner & more poop free. We loved how pet friendly they were & would love to come back again!!

  • Apr 13, 2018 by James W.

    So lets start with saying  I am very fussy about my hotel and where i sleep.  I am giving SeaCrest a 5 because they deserve it!  This is not the Ritz Carlton but it was super clean, outstanding views the friendliest helpful staff.  The continental breakfast was Okay not fantastic but held me over til lunchtime for sure.  I will definitely being staying here again and I suggest you do too

  • Apr 12, 2018 by AE -.

    We really enjoyed our stay! The hotel is literally in front of the ocean. We had a great view from our room. The front girl that assisted us was very friendly. She gave us a free bottle of wine and there were chocolates waiting for us in the room for our anniversary! Such a nice touch. They also offer a 10dollar voucher that you can use at their market place if you choose not to have your room cleaned. How cool is that! They were renovating when we went so the lobby was obviously not done and they had their reception area in one of the rooms. Not a big deal, but we'll definitely go back once they finish their renovation. This hotel is also close to the pier and nearby restaurants. Highly recommended!

  • Apr 10, 2018 by Maggie Lewis

    Great hotel. Right on the coast. Great views
    Magical sunset and sunrise. Rooms very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly

  • Apr 09, 2018 by Gabriel Quinonez

    I booked through a website my employer offers and called to upgrade room but when I showed up it didn't show the room that I wanted to upgrade to, but the manager on duty Danielle provided me with excellent customer service and tool care of everything for me. She put us in an Ocean Front King Deluxe that my family absolutely loved! Thank you Sea Crest and Thank you Danielle for making our Easter stay a wonderful and memorable experience . P.S. the Room was amazing and the bbq and firepits by the pool were awesome.

  • Apr 04, 2018 by Meg V.

    Our go to spot when in pismo beach area. Great views. Lots of things to do for the kids. Walking distance to beach.

  • Apr 03, 2018 by Dana D.

    I was a little unsure about trying a different hotel from our usual but we were glad we did! What a nice surprise! Amazing views especially from the Deluxe Spa room which they upgraded for our anniversary. Top floor beautiful 180 views of beach and ocean and along coastline. Could not believe how close we were to Pismo Pier and downtown so walking the beach was great to and from downtown. The room was big, huge jacuzzi tub and bay view window in addition to balcony overlooking the beach. The lobby was being renovated so there was a room next door as a temporary lobby. The staff were wonderful and always smiling. The fire pits were nice along with the direct access down to beach. The morning breakfast provided was in a tiny room which was horribly small and just okay items nothing special. There will be a restaurant in parking lot that is opening.

  • Apr 03, 2018 by Alejandra V.

    staying here first time! really love the 3 jacuzzies and the warm pool! paying 20$ more for beach view! worth it! acces to the beach, was the best!the room really clean! I will stay here again!!

  • Apr 02, 2018 by Carole Word

    We had Easter Brunch at the Willow Market, Pismo. This weekend was their "soft opening." It was a little pricey...$40 per person, but pretty tasty. The staff was courteous and attentive. The decor is very nice as is the bar. It is not part of the Seacrest, but it's my understanding that guests at the Seacrest will be able to order room service from the Willow Market. We will go again for lunch or dinner once it's up and running.

  • Mar 23, 2018 by kathleen...

    I didn't personally stay in the room. I rented it for a 90-year-old friend who came here from L.A. to speak in our schools. Last year he was at a different hotel, oceanfront, and said he couldn't sleep because of the sound of the ocean right outside his room! So I conveyed that information to the SeaCrest staff. He had the perfect experience...a beautiful view when he wanted it, but a VERY quiet (his words) room at night! He also shared that it was a lovely room and the personnel were very friendly. Thank you, SeaCrest!

  • Mar 22, 2018 by mamabbyth...

    Our room was lovely and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We checked in several hours early and then we were able to have a late check up. The view from our ocean front room/balcony was spectacular!! I will definitely stay here again!

  • Mar 21, 2018 by RJ V.

    We arrived Monday morning along with my daughter and her little friend the place is going through a huge renovation and compared to about two years ago when my wife and I stay there they have done a fabulous job in renovating this beautiful hotel which has beautiful views of the Pacific ocean. They offered us to stay at an oceanfront room for an extra $40 which we excepted we stayed on the third floor we had our own balcony with two chairs and a table and enjoyed our bottle of wine. We walked down to the swimming pool and enjoyed the two of the three Jacuzzis that they have along with her new furniture they have Rex to the pool. I can't wait to stay there once this place is completely done. In the morning we woke up and took advantage of their continental breakfast which was in a makeshift room but it's temporary while they complete their renovation. The food was good and there was a good variety what I love about this place now is that they deliver bottles of wine and beer to your room so you can enjoy the views and sip on some nectar of the gods. Parking is easy there is a new restaurant opening up next to this hotel I believe it's called willows and I hope their food and service will be great once it opens up. I highly highly recommend this hotel toAnybody who wants to come and relax and enjoy the views of the Pacific ocean the job Seacrest.

  • Mar 19, 2018 by lostinfou...

    Love this hotel and this location, in general. Worth the money. We went during a lot of construction, and as far as construction goes, it didn't cause a lot of problems. Pool hours were tightened and breakfast just wasn't the same, but the room (Ocean View King) was amazing, as it was last time we stayed here in 2014. If you're planning a trip here, I would wait until the construction gets further along though. That said, even with the construction, I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in the area. Hotel staff are kind and accommodating. Nothing like falling asleep and waking up to the calming sound of the ocean on a comfortable bed.

  • Mar 18, 2018 by elle_cher...

    SeaCrest is a great hotel! Awesome oceanfront with great views, swimming pool and hot tubs, and beaches. We got an ocean front room and just enjoyed the coastline, and beautiful sunsets. Close to Hearst Castle, Solvang and Santa Barbara if you want to explore.

  • Mar 16, 2018 by Heidi W.

    The SeaCrest has prime oceanfront property. Our room looked out to the ocean thanks to Rachel who upgraded us after we caught in a snowstorm and got in a day late. Rachel has been absolutely incredible! Even left some champagne in our room for arrival. And help my mom deliver a gift bag to be waiting for us in the room. The room had the most magnificent views, a sitting area to see the ocean and a balcony where we watched the sunset each night. The hotel has a stairway down to the beach that made walking on the beach so convenient and close every morning. The also have wonderful sitting areas that look to the ocean and amazing, fancy firepits to sit next too. We did that in the evenings and even took family photos there for Christmas! They had nice grills in case people wanted to grill. This place is a hidden gem of amazingness!!!! Even on Christmas day, the staff was cheery, kind and went the extra mile to be sure we had a wonderful stay and holiday. The breakfasts were WONDERFUL and so expansive. I love the variety. From hard boiled eggs to fresh, yummy grapefruit to organic granola, oatmeal bar, bagels, waffles, cereal and more - it was incredible!! Everyone got their breakfast and sat at the umbrella tables that look to the ocean. It sure was amazing to get in from snowstorm to this paradise place. The only thing I can think of that was a little tough was the upstairs room was noisy even after midnight/the floors are hard wood so noise carries more. HOWEVER, the front desk was incredible and dealt with it right away and even said to let them know if they continue and that they'd call the cops. Our comfort was there concern. For only a 3 star resort, this really felt much higher.

  • Mar 16, 2018 by marcuscla...

    Parts of the hotel are currently under construction - we were aware of this at the time of booking and decided to stay here anyway. They are changing the main entrance and lobby area which will look great when it is complete. At the moment they are making do with a makeshift reception in one of the rooms. The breakfast is also in a temporary location being served in the conference room. We could hear some noise from the construction in the day but it didn’t effect our stay and was not very loud. The location is fantastic and has stairs down to the beach. The hot tubs are great and not usually busy as there are three of them. The rooms were clean and the staff were all very friendly. Breakfast was quite average with limited choice - I don’t know whether this is because it is served in a small temporary location or not but that could be improved. It would also be nice to have a fitness centre which this hotel does not currently have. This will be a great hotel once it is complete. We got a great deal on the place at the time and we’re happy we booked here despite the construction. I would recommend to anyone, particularly once the renovations are complete.

  • Mar 12, 2018 by Danielle M.

    Our stay at seacrest was phenomenal.  From the beginning guest services was so accommodating and really worked to make this trip for my boyfriend and I special.  Our room had an award winning view of the ocean.  The bed was comfortable, room was clean, and grounds were beautiful.  They are currently under renovation, but over the weekend we had no interaction with any working crew.  The roof top fire pits are so lovely.  The hotel has a long flight of stairs that lead directly to the beach.  Quality and convenience to downtown Pismo Beach. Will definitely be back and maybe opt for the upgraded suite!

  • Mar 12, 2018 by brockward

    We booked a "Signature Deluxe King" room on the 4th floor of the north wing. The view was breath taking, the room was clean and the staff was first class . There was construction going on at the time, but the staff made every attempt to accommodate their guest. We are looking forward to visiting again, after the remodel. The beverage service is a nice added bonus

  • Mar 12, 2018 by 1LGM1

    We stayed in a ground floor family suite during the renovation. Rooms had a beautiful view, were clean, up to date and when requested extra blanks and the like, the service was quick. I would stay here again. Cons: Room is walker accessible, but going out the sliding glass doors to the pool & hot tub(both handicapped accessible) Room 132 required going down maybe 7 or 8 widely spaced stairs not good for a wheelchair or walker. Window in second room does not open. We stayed for 5 days and were given two complimentary bottles of water. I checked and this was two per stay, not two per day. Continental Breakfast was fair at best. The Complimenary breakfast card for the place a few blocks away was nice but again only good for one day. The credit to beverage service was doubled to $20 due to the construction. Again only one for a 5 day stay. We stayed in the family suite, a premium room, with a premium rate which we were charged five days. However you only got one day of the "premium" amenities. Web site is a bit misleading. Otherwise this would easily have been a 5 star rated hotel.

    We have totally enjoyed our stay! If I HAD to find something wrong, it would have to be the NOISY people above us, but the hotel can't help that. We enjoyed the pool, 3 Jacuzzi's, walk to the beach, and stunning ocean views. These are views from our room!

  • Mar 12, 2018 by brenagain

    We wanted to cut our drive in half and chose this hotel for the ocean view rooms. We got the deluxe ocean front room. Our view of the sunset was breathtaking. At one point, we were standing in a pink sky on the balcony. The room came with a free cook to order breakfast at the Shell Cafe and $10 drink credit applicable to beers or wine. The room was large, clean and suitable for in room dining. I loved the sit in bay window to take in the view.

  • Mar 09, 2018 by Emilio M.

    Very good place to stay. Had a problem that was quickly fixed. There is some construction going on now but will be back.

  • Mar 06, 2018 by Cynthia M

    They are renovating the hotel. Everything is being upgraded. The lobby looks like it will be nice when finished. The steps to the upper level is a great improvement. We used the bbq there which was really convenient.

  • Mar 05, 2018 by Marni I

    We stopped in for a one night stop over and couldn’t be happier! The staff were very accommodating and gave us a great deal for last minute check in. The place is beautiful, right on the beach. They are undergoing renovations although that has not effected our stay at all. Highly recommended this Motel and wish we had more time here to enjoy it!

  • Mar 05, 2018 by HardwireTag

    Claims to be friendly, but almost anything but friendly" Nice looking hotel building with plenty of parking. Small swimming pool which along with the seating area and fire pits overlooks the sea. Stayed in a mid-level room which was a good size, decor was a little 60's retro kitsch but as advertised. Direct tv in the room with a standard fridge and microwave oven. The hotel grounds, however, has lots of building works which were not advertised in advance and yet the worst part was the staff. Arrived late in the evening and the check-in staff was not friendly in the slightest, cold even. The following morning called down asking about the check out time was told very abruptly. Went down for breakfast and found tea, coffee and some juices otherwise just some bread, cereals, eggs (boiled only) and about three pastries which were not replenished. My advice, don't count on breakfast here. Time of the year affects this, but the room was very cold overnight and the heating/air con was really noisy so could not use it With all of this said, the hotel banks on the location and *could* be a great place to stay if they upped their game a little.

  • Mar 03, 2018 by LucianeAN...

    Ótima opção para quem está viajando pelo litoral da Califórnia. Quartos confortáveis, bom café da manhã, vista espetacular, fogueiras artificiais ao ar livre para aquecimento, e a praia bem em frente!

  • Mar 01, 2018 by Lesa Lamb

    I love this hotel. I have been going every year around this time for the past 10 years. Have seen the improvements. The price is pretty average.

  • Mar 01, 2018 by Julianne H

    We love this gem of a hotel! It sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, has all of the amenities you are looking for and staff that treats you like family. You can walk along the beach to downtown or sit in the hot tub and soak away your stress, you pick!

  • Feb 28, 2018 by Steven D

    Our second stay. First time we had a long day and were Cold n tired of riding our motorcycle up the coast and needed a place to crash. What a pleasant surprise to find The Sea Crest. They have remodeled the dining and pool areas. Love the location and proximity to everything in Pismo. We will be back

  • Feb 27, 2018 by Roberto Gonzalez

    My family and I have been using this motel since the 1970s. Great improvements over the years. The newest updates are great, very modern. Great views of the ocean and access to the beach, steep stairs not easy if you are elderly or have back problems. Heated pool and the different Jacuzzis are great. Great continental breakfast. The only drawback is the price. They have always been reasonable, but the last few years the price has more than doubled. Management says it's due to the remodels, but the staff gives you the real answer. Most of their guests they get from Tour busses, with Europeans who have lots of money. The staff says because they are usually always full due to the tour busses they can charge more.

  • Feb 27, 2018 by GRAMMIEGRAM

    First of all we would like to say Christina who is employed at SeaCrest is one amazing lady. Christina is very professional as is Danielle. Thank you for your EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. The rooms are super clean, excellent view, 100 steps to the beach, gorgeous views and OUTSTANDING customer service from all employees.

  • Feb 26, 2018 by JJ M.

    When we booked our reservation, we were not told that they were under construction. They are remodeling the lobby area which posed a problem for us as our room was located above the lobby so the construction noise was a factor. Upon check out we told them of the inconvenient noise factor but since we booked thru a 3rd party, they weren't willing to take anything off our stay. The room was nice, extremely comfortable bed, the ocean view & easy access to the beach was wonderful. The very loud rattling bathroom fan as well as the Ac/Heater unit woke us up every time it turned on. We definitely did not partake in the breakfast they offered as it did not look appetizing at all. Went to Dolphin Bay Resort for an outstanding breakfast & lunch. Dolphin Bay would be the place to stay - even though it's pricier. Once the construction is all done at Sea Crest, I'm sure they will try to increase their rates but paying anything more than $159 per night to stay here is robbery. It's an older establishment & will never get to Dolphin Bay standards!

  • Feb 26, 2018 by John Y

    We have been coming here for the past 5 years and really love the place. It is great with the family and the dog. Definitely will be back. I find the staff extremely friendly and helpful. This trip there is a lot of construction going on so parking was a bit difficult, but that should be over soon.

  • Feb 25, 2018 by A TripAdvisor Member

    The hotel was under construction. we were notified about this prior to booking and arriving. Everything was good except the continental breakfast, one of the normal perks with staying here, was in a much too small room/area. It was chaotic in the breakfast area. We opted to go elsewhere to eat. Our room was nice, but the group occupying the room above made it difficult to sleep in the morning. They were very heavy-footed walkers or the ceiling/floor is just not well insulated to absorb the constant thumping of these occupants.

  • Feb 25, 2018 by justin l

    Even though there are some renovations ongoing this season, you get the sense this is a well run hotel. From check-in to check-out things are organized and efficient. The room is spacious and spotless, nice little balcony and a comfortable living space for a few nights. There's a large fridge and great WiFi for some Netflix during some downtime. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the pool because of the cool weather, but spent our time walking the beach and taking in some of the West coast's greatest scenery. Sunrise and sunset are particularly sensational. Breakfast was merely good enough to get the day going but it's great that they include it - the fresh fruit was great. All in all a lovely stop on highway 1. Check around for discounts. You can't beat the property itself in Pismo.

  • Feb 25, 2018 by Steve H.

    This place is a gem! First of all, the staff has been superb on each of my 3 stays there. Friendly and accommodating. The grounds feature a great hang out space with fire pits, couches and barbecues. When we saw there were two large groups using the area, the staff set up a portable barbecue near our room.   Speaking of the rooms, they are nice, well-appointed, modern and clean. The hotel sits on a cliff above the ocean, and had a stairway down to the beach. They are doing some hardscape upgrades so some of the pool area was closed, but I wasn't going to swim. It is a great place for families.

  • Feb 24, 2018 by 774nancys

    We only spent one night at this lovely hotel, but will definitely stay here again. Even though they were remodeling the office the staff was exceptional and they went out of their way to accommodate us and all the guests. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the pool and hot-tub area very nice and very close to the downtown area and shopping. The stairs to the ocean are well built and taken care of and this is an exceptional beach right at the bottom.

  • Feb 23, 2018 by on-th-go-mama

    This is the second time I have stayed here. The rooms are very nice and clean. They are currently remodeling so they gave us a $20 cert to be used on drinks or snacks at the hotel. The breakfast was very good with a good variety of choices. This hotel is right on the beach, which you need to walk down stairs to get to. They have a lot of seating outside to relax. I highly recommend this property.

  • Feb 21, 2018 by Hulagirl4

    This was our first time here and looked to take advantage of a warm winter. Had an ocean front view and it was gorgeous! We could see all the way down to the pier and up the coast. They are still completing major renovations but it didn't impact our stay at all. Rooms were great and staff was friendly and looking forward to visiting again as it should all look even better the next time. Family couldn't have been happier and looking forward to coming again!

  • Feb 21, 2018 by lisp650

    Overall everything was great. My only issue was that upon check in we were told the pool closes at 530 :( I have 2 kids and specifically picked this place for the heated pool since the beach in feb is very cold. I have never stayed in a hotel that shuts down the pool so early. Big bummer.

  • Feb 20, 2018 by Feelingera

    Warm winter discount oh my we love it. The partial ocean view rooms are very good too especially if you are on the 4th floor and close to the rooftop terrace. Watching the ocean waves, sunrise and sunset with a cup of coffee or glass of wine..Oh my heaven. Staff are very nice also they're accomodating..We are definitely go back with more company.

  • Feb 19, 2018 by mcculloch1501

    Nice hotel, which should improve over time as they finish the major renovation project. So far the rooms and guest areas are looking good. The rooms have been upgraded with stylish new furniture and beds. On the downside, they redid the closet, installed new shelving, which is too wide so your close hit the newly installed doors. Needs to be corrected to not ruin clothes. Out side areas are coming along and look stunning so far, but the hotel has a lot of work to do and were running behind schedule, when my group of 15 were staying. I look forward to staying again once they have completed the renovation.

  • Feb 18, 2018 by Cali F.

    Location and views are quite amazing. Room is annoying.... Wifi went out and the heater cooler is impossible to control properly

  • Feb 17, 2018 by mishelez

    We were very pleased with the room and the view! We came to Pismo passing through on our way to Monterey and enjoyed our stay here at the Seacrest. Super clean! We would stay again and recommend this hotel.

  • Feb 16, 2018 by crsxtn

    Love this hotel - the views can’t be beat, amazing location close to the pier but still a good walk, great restaurant around and the rooms are always nice and clean. Staff very accommodating. I come here twice a year at least and wish I lived closer! Can’t wait to come back and see it once the renovations are completed! Never have to leave the property to see the best sunset!

  • Feb 13, 2018 by Linda S

    This hotel was under construction during our recent visit, but the staff was super friendly and made it up to each guest with a voucher - good toward drinks. Once construction is done (updated center rooms and pool), the hotel is going to be gorgeous! We stayed in one of the north tower rooms, which was new and beautiful! The hotel is located right on the coast - very pretty view! Nice breakfast spread!!

  • Feb 12, 2018 by dvasquez99

    I was here on business and my family got to enjoy some time here. Although it is under construction and the pool area is closed, you get direct beach access which was great. The construction didn't bother us, in fact we look forward to coming back one renovations are done. All the staff was great and really helpful. We really liked the three propane grills that are available by the lounge area.

  • Feb 11, 2018 by Susan H

    We absolutely loved this place. The staff was very helpful, and made our stay all the more enjoyable. We had a room with a balcony it was a beautiful view, No other room could see in our balcony so we could admire the view even in bed. We had planned on one night , but stayed two. Breakfast was outstanding and such a great place to eat it.

  • Feb 11, 2018 by William R S

    We've been coming to this property every year since 1983. Sea Crest has changed a lot over the three decades we've been coming. Each change has been positive and increased an already outstanding experience. The only change that is very hard to embrace is the cost of the room.

  • Feb 10, 2018 by Sandy B.

    Planning a Anniversary/Valentines getaway we booked an amazing room with a balcony facing the ocean. Planning to sit on the balcony, enjoy the sunset with the sound of the ocean and a great glass of wine. Instead we were stuck in our room with doors/shutters closed trying to drown out a loud DJ and live band. Wish we would have been told when we booked the room about this event right outside our room so we could have chosen a different hotel or weekend. This was so disappointing since the staff was amazing and the room would have been great. I suggest the hotel consider not opting to allow this type of event to occur in late afternoon evening but instead offer this option during the day when most people are out enjoying the beach and downtown Pismo.

  • Feb 09, 2018 by Anne T.

    5 star service +5 Star room + 5 star view! **FYI, we did come here during the construction and still had a wonderful time** we came in for a birthday getaway in the middle of feb (still here as I'm writing this review). from the moment of check in, though it was a make shift front desk, Jackie was still very friendly and gave us a little tour/map as it was our first time staying in pismo. Upon entering the room (king bed with a coastal view) very clean, all the amenities- microwave + mini fridge + plenty of plugs to charge cameras and phones! The view was still amazing and can barely hear the construction even though we were right next to the main building that they are working on the most. Of course, the complimentary breakfast is always a plus! (Bagels, oatmeal, coffee/juice, danishes, muffins- plenty!!) each room has a little patio/balcony. Again ours had the view + a little dust from construction don't hurt nobody.. it was still a great time. Also, the bonfires were still up at night time. But the construction was in the way; I'm sure when it's all done it'll be amazing. The location is awesome, just about 2 miles from everything pismo - 1 mi away from pier, 2 from ATVing! This location + the view is everything!!!!! This was our first time here but DEFINITELY NOT OUR LAST!! SeaCrest thank you for being so good to us!! We already can't wait to come back!!!! Pictures are view from our patio!

  • Feb 09, 2018 by Cllvdisny3

    We love staying here. It has been a family tradition for over 50 years. Views are extraordinary! The staff is very friendly and are there to help with any questions you may have. The only “complaint “ would be no water pressure for the bathroom sink lol! Lovely place to go relax and forget the stresses of everyday life.

  • Feb 07, 2018 by Dave B.

    This was an official nightmare! Forget the construction and mess that comes with that activity. My nightmare was one of gross negligence and lack of safety. Around 5am, the power on one wall went out. I notified the Manager on Duty. He went through the normal stuff, like breaker box and GFI switch, nothing.  He informed me that Maintenance would arrive at 7am. They did. The Maintenance folks went through the same drills as night manager. Found nothing. They then pulled out the desk and furniture that housed the refrigerator and microwave. What was discovered was multiple power extensions that overload breakers. The plugs, covers and outlet adaptors all burned and melted, all while not tripping the breaker. Around 8:30am the maintenance workers finished the job. I checked out around 9:15am and spoke with the Front End Manager. I showed her the pictures of the fire that was ready to ignite. I suggested that my night should not get charged for the danger and inconvenience. She informed me that she would need to talk to the GM. I got a call back around 9:45am. To my surprise, there was no remorse, apology, but rather a "we can give you 50% off of your stay".  I was taken by this. Take a look at the damage and you determine if you want to stay at a place that prides themselves a family and pet friendly. Is the risk worth it? My book says no way.

  • Feb 06, 2018 by azelton

    We had a great time, the construction did not allow us to use the pool or spa. The weather was great and the sunset was amazing. The room was very clean. Pismo is a great place to visit. The breakfast was great and clean and well stocked.

  • Feb 06, 2018 by Cynthia L

    Perfect location, under construction so not able to use the pool. Will be beautiful once completed. Looking forward to it next year. Great BBQ area next to pool. Walking distance to ocean and shops. They allow animals.

  • Feb 04, 2018 by pannette1

    Our go to lodgings for Pismo. Great views and nice outdoor seating with fire pits and chairs for lounging. Staff is friendly. Lots of people staying here had dogs. Their is an outdoof patio area with a BBQ you can reserve for your party.

  • Feb 03, 2018 by FabriceMa...

    La vue sur l'ocean est particulierement belle (à condition d'avoir une chambre orientée du bon côté). Demandez à visiter la chambre avant d'accepter. L'hotel a subi des rénovations de chambres importantes, elles sont désormais modernes et confortables. bon rapport qualité-prix

  • Feb 02, 2018 by Sharon E.

    This is our fifth year here and sadly it has not started off well. We can see the room is ready yet the front desk hasn't gotten confirmation as such. So here we wait. Almost 5 pm and no room so not sure what to do with our dinner reservation. And to make matters worse, the pool and spa area that was supposed to be ready by 1/31, is still not open. Disappointed is what we are right now.

  • Feb 02, 2018 by floracupcake

    I booked the King Spa deluxe room. We just stayed for one night. I wish we could of stayed longer. The room was very roomy,clean and had a gorgeous view of the ocean. It was super nice to sit out on the patio with 70’ degree weather. The front desk upon arrival were very friendly and helpful. They were all in a small room because of the renovations that were going on for the property. Which did not bother us at all. The lady who was helping us offered me a complimentary wine for my birthday and delivered it to my room when we were ready for it. The bed was super comfortable. The jacuzzi was HUGE. It could fit probably 5 people in it. There’s a a set of stairs where you can walk down to the beach. This property is very beautiful. We had a awesome time and we will definitely be coming back for a longer visit. BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!

  • Feb 02, 2018 by PortlandCEE

    I love Seacrest. The view from our room was amazing. Everyone working there is positive and kind. We will return next year. I think of Seacrest as my home away from home. I love everything about Seacrest. I checked out this morning, and I am missing it already!

  • Feb 01, 2018 by Dezi A.

    Seacrest: You have lost a long time customer. I visit the Seacrest once a year and never have I received such RUDE service! Thank you for not being able to accommodate me due to the DELAYED CONSTRUCTION on your end! We were told last minute that many of the amenities would be closed two days before my stay! So they have the pool area closed off the spa and the lobby??? So not worth the value....The FRONT DESK MANAGER was no help and VERY rude, and did nothing to help. This place is no longer my hotel of choice when traveling! Stay away!!

  • Feb 01, 2018 by Justbo805

    Love love this hotel! It was our first time visiting Pismo Beach since we moved away 2 years ago. Everything we expected was fulfilled. The room we had was beautiful and had great views. The only gripe we have is the "20 dollar credit" offered for drinks was for alcohol based drinks only, which was a bummer as wife and i don't drink. Might want to make it more clear during check in.

  • Jan 31, 2018 by Amber Retzloff

    Overall had a good experience. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations but the room was fine. Pros: right at the ocean great views Can walk down to the water Pet friendly Large bathroom Small patio to relax on. Most have ocean views Very close to the pier/boardwalk Cons: No actual beach access (you can walk down stairs but you can't leave them safely--rocks and waves!) Our room sliding door was in need if repair Our patio had no view (unless you count an ivy covered wall) Overall it was a good experience. I wouldn't mind staying here again.

  • Jan 31, 2018 by Gemini L.

    I booked the hotel thru hotwire.com, and the price was pretty competitive. When I checked in, I asked if my room could have the ocean view, but the manager said they were all booked up. Besides, the Hotwire reservation could only get the standard room. Ok.. that's fair due to the cheaper price. When we walked to the room, it was on the first floor and next to the elevator. It must have lot of traffic outside/inside the hotel. So we went back to the lobby and asked if there was another room avaliable. At the beginning, the staff said it was pretty fully booked. But when we insist to get another one, she showed us the map for the available rooms (4 to 5 rooms). They were all next to the elevator. We then picked the one on the third floor. The conclusion is if you want to have better view or location, don't book the room thru Hotwire, Expedia or discount website. You will regret it.

  • Jan 30, 2018 by Miley C.

    I am never disappointed in any way when I stay at the Sea Crest! From the moment I get there, I am welcomed warmly as if I'm an old friend from two people in the front desk, manager Danielle and reservation agent Christina. These two never cease to amaze me with their kindness, professionalism, and really making me feel like my needs are important to them. These two ladies always meet my requests with ease and I know that I am taken care of when I come to the SeaCrest and their on shift. As far as the amenities and the hotel itself. It is of the upmost high quality. It is clean and organized. The rooms are immaculate. The ocean views are incomparable. Everything about this hotel is superb. If you want a flawless vacation, staycation, business trip, etc..ask for Christina and Danielle and choose Sea Crest!

  • Jan 30, 2018 by James K

    My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing stay at the SeaCrest Oceanfront Hotel over the weekend, and we were impressed with the property! The views were breathtaking, the room and property was clean and well kept, and the staff was SO nice!! We will make the SeaCrest a regular stop on our visits to the Central California coast!!!

  • Jan 29, 2018 by Virginia E

    It was the most beautiful experience I have ever had. It felt like I was in another world. The view was breath taking. I couldn't imagine ever staying anywhere else on the central coast. I would highly recommend Sea Crest to all my family and friends.

  • Jan 28, 2018 by Michael H

    In early December we packed up the family (including our puppy) and went to Pismo to escape terrible air quality in Santa Barbara. Originally we planned on staying only for a couple of nights. We chose the Sea Crest because of the gorgeous location, clean rooms, the fact that breakfast was included and that they allowed pets. We extended our stay several times, and ended up staying for 10 nights. Staff was gracious and accommodating and went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome. Particularly Christina at the front desk was so kind, genuine and always willing to help. We can’t wait to go back to this very special place.

  • Jan 27, 2018 by Kathy R

    I come to the Seacrest about twice a year to recharge my batteries. I just love the property and you can't beat the views. The spa rooms make for a perfect get away with my husband. If you want a great family vacation or a romantic getaway, Seacrest is your place!

  • Jan 26, 2018 by Antonio C.

    This was  my wife's and I second year staying at the Seacrest. We had a very good experience the first year so decided to stay there again. Check in was horrible. We didn't get the room we were promised. There were guests smoking marijuana as well as cigarettes  ( this is a non smoking hotel). When I called the front desk to complain, all they did was spray an aerosol to mask the odor but got woken up to the same smell. We don't own pets nor do we smoke so I'm not sure when this became a facility for smoking and barking dogs. We have children and left them at home not  to deal with screaming kids, only to substitute by barking animals day and night! We will never stay there again! The walls are paper thin so please remember to bring ear buds or ear plugs as you can hear everything! The variety of the breakfast menu was very small so we didn't eat there the 3 days we stayed. Unfortunately, I had paid for the days in advance.

  • Jan 25, 2018 by Mark N.

    I just tried to book a room for Saturday night, April 14th, and we were told that it is a minimum two nights stay. We always stay at this hotel on our way home from San Diego and it was been on a Saturday in the past. It is unfortunate and frustrating because the service and hospitality is impeccable. Why not consider changing the policy, or maybe reserve 1-2 rooms for a one night stay? This is very frustrating as we were very much looking forward to staying here. Needless to say, we will never stay here again and we will take our business elsewhere.

  • Jan 22, 2018 by cyclerama

    This property is right on the ocean and you can get an oceanfront room for a very reasonable price in off season. Granted, during summer, prices are high, but that is in keeping with a popular beach town. This property is very clean and has all the amenities I want. If you are looking for a large pool, this probably isn't the property for you. The pool is centrally located and adequate, but is often closed when I am there (winter.) The main part of Pismo is right down the street and there are many options for restaurants, walking on the beach, and shopping. If you come in winter, be warned that there is often construction and you may not be able to use all the amenities. If you can live with coming in winter, you can't beat the value.

  • Jan 21, 2018 by henderson_scott

    Great hotel. Gorgeous views. Comfy bed. Relaxing pool area and fire pits around the property.. Even got a $20 thirst aid bonus because they're working on improvements to the hotel. We've stayed here numerous times and will be back again.

  • Jan 21, 2018 by Eleanor P

    We have been coming to Seacrest Hotel several years and each time we've been impressed with their rooms, breakfest and courtesy . Their grounds are beautiful with ocean front property with walkway to the beach. Their prices are reasonable and we always get a great nights sleep.

  • Jan 21, 2018 by Chris A

    We had to leave our town because of a fire and Danielle and her staff were so great! Very accommodating from the start and made sure we were well taken care of. We can’t wait for our next stay, we will definitely be back.

  • Jan 20, 2018 by Madison M.

    We booked a weekend at the Seacrest Hotel for our friends wedding and it was a great experience. We got a room with a beach front view that was breathtaking! It was kind of a cold, cloudy weekend but that didn't stop us from enjoying the ocean access right from the hotel. Having a very comfortable king size bed made a huge difference compared to most hotels I've stayed at as well. The service is great and the staff were all very friendly. I will definitely recommend the Seacrest Oceanfront Hotel to all my friends and family.

  • Jan 20, 2018 by Cindy L.

    We booked our reservation through Expedia, which no where indicated that this place was under construction. At the time I was staying, construction was not as bad as what others say, however I'm very disappointed that I had to pay this much money to stay here. I really would have rather stayed at the Dolphin Bay Hotel even though its pricier if I would have known about the construction. Customer service was good. And at least they had one hot tub open. The view from our balcony is alright but I can't complain that the hotel doesn't have a spectacular view of the ocean. Also, Pismo is a pretty boring place.

  • Jan 20, 2018 by Martha H.

    We where there, a couple of days before Christmas. Check in is around 4 :00 pm. I thought, we can hang around the beach and boardwalk until it's time to check in. So we got to Pismo around 10:00am. So I decided to call the SeaCrest and see if they would at least let us park at the hotel. So I call in with two questions.1. To see if we could park there, 2. How much they would charge for early check in. So I called in, and to my surprise they Girls in the front desk were so, attentive and professional. So I asked if we could check in early, she put me on hold and to my surprise she said YES! We checked in around 10:30 am instead of 4:00 pm. We were so excited. Our room was awesome!!!! Front Ocean View. Since the Hotel is in renovation, they gave us a Boucher for $20 dollars to use towards alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. Delivered to our room. Although they have a really nice Continental Breakfast, they also gave us another Boucher for Shell Cafe. We had coffee and a Pastry at 7:00!am looking at the beautiful beach. The views are amazing!!! Then we used the Boucher for the Cafe also. Really good! I know it's a little bit pricey. But so worth your money. You don't need to go down to beach if you don't want to. The views from up there are sooooo beautiful.

    This was our first time visiting Pismo Beach. I was very happy I chose the Seacrest Hotel for our stay. Our view from our room was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the hotel is close to restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.

    Hotel room with fantastic view. Room was clean with all quality extras micro/fridge/coffee! Beds super comfortable - pillows too. Staff friendly and attentive. Continental breakfast - plenty of choices. Close to butterfly grove which was spectacular. All making a bucket list check off a great experience!

  • Jan 15, 2018 by troylynl

    Winter in Pismo provided the perfect weather and an amazing opportunity for a getaway. We had the perfect view of the sunset! Our stay was only one night but it was wonderful. Listening to the ocean waves as they put us to sleep! We look forward to booking again and making this an annual event.

    We fell in love with the Seacrest back in 2014 when our daughter began her studies at Cal Poly! We absolutely love everything about this beautiful hotel! So relaxing. Peaceful. Wonderful breakfast. Comfy couches around firepits over looking the ocean. Just breathtaking.

  • Jan 13, 2018 by Alina S

    Ocean front hotel on bluff directly above sand, you can take stairs down to beach. Hotel is undergoing a renovation so all guests get comped a bottle of wine or two beers from local wineries. The breakfast was pretty standard all you can eat. We also got the off location breakfast, that was more of hot breakfast also good reality we didn't need it as we were stuffed with what hotel provided. Same hotel in Orange or LA would be twice the cost. Located in walking distance to several excel at restaurants.

  • Jan 12, 2018 by Jackie M

    So when we pulled up and saw construction got a bit concerned, however no worries! The staff was ready and waiting and within minutes I forgot all about the construction. They let us go look at the room prior to booking. We got a beautiful view with a patio walk out room. Christina and karlee were very accommodating to our needs and requests. Definitely recommend.

  • Jan 12, 2018 by leticia8412

    Extraordinary! The location and hotel was absolutely beautiful! The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our needs. The hotel is pet friendly, which I love beacuse I got to bring my dogs on vacation too! There is a nice seating area and walking spots with clean-up bags and trash for our pet's needs. The hotel and room was very clean. Wonderful view to the beach. They also provided us with a pet bed and a food and water bowl. My family and I were very happy with our stay.

    Another nice stay at Sea Crest. Building under construction however our room in the South tower was not prepped well. Phone didn't work so I had to pull the desk away from the wall to plug it in and then it was mostly static. TV didn't work. Had to sit and watch the maintenance guys futz around with changing the box and calling directv at 1030 at night while we all laid in bend and watched him for 45 minutes. Not the best experience.

  • Jan 06, 2018 by Mike S.

    I visit the Seacrest once or twice a year.  This last week I visited only to find practically the entire hotel is under construction.  With the amount of noise and disturbance, I am frankly astonished that the hotel is open. The construction started at 7am sharp.  Hammering, power saws and impact wrenches.  I am paying to wake up to the sound of the ocean. Instead it was construction all day.   Typically I like to spend most of my time hanging out at the hotel , relaxing enjoying the view and peace.   I took time off work to go here and relax.  I am furious the hotel was open.  I feel betrayed and will be trying a different t hotel In 3 months on my next trip.

  • Jan 06, 2018 by L0wie

    We had an Ocean View King room with a private balcony overlooking the pool and Pacific Ocean. There is free parking and a good Continental breakfast. The day we left was the day they were embarking on a fairly extensive renovation of the grounds and lobby. I cannot imagine how amazing it will be after that. We sat around one of the fire pits at night and enjoyed the sea air. We took a morning stroll along the beach before we left the next morning. I would definitely return to this place.

  • Jan 06, 2018 by milandash

    The first word that comes to mind when I think of my experience at the Sea Crest is WOW. My fiancé and I like to take what we call staycations every couple weeks to about once a month. Every time we stay at the Sea Crest we are always completely impressed! The elite customer service we receive imparticular from Christina and Danielle at the front desk is almost beyond words. They are both kind, professional, genuine, and go above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate our every need and want. I know we will always be taken care of when these two ladies are working! The location is absolutely gorgeous, right on the cliffs. We have stayed in several different room types there and not one has disappointed. The rooms are upscale, clean, crisp, warm and welcoming.

  • Jan 04, 2018 by u2urs

    We had a wonderful visit to the SeaCrest this week. We had a deluxe room in the north tower with spectacular ocean views from both picture windows and our balcony. The room was very spacious and we could even see the ocean from bed! We love the central coast, but when I stay at the SeaCrest, I don't want to leave the hotel! If you must leave, make sure you're back in time for the spectacular sunset. We plan to stay at the SeaCrest whenever visiting Pismo!

  • Jan 04, 2018 by rachelarmenta

    This hotel was amazing not only relaxing but the wonderful staff. Danielle who works at the front desk made sure that I had a wonderful stay and was very sweet. This worker cares about making people feel very comfortable that I can't wait to go back. This will be my families permanent stay when going to Pismo Beach. The view was spectacular I loved that I could see and view the ocean right from my room. Thank you, Danielle, for making everything perfect.

  • Jan 03, 2018 by Vipul K.

    We were there on the new years weekend and we were not satisfied with the services provided. When we got there we were surprised that the property was under construction, it was never advertised as what to expect. Pool area was also closed. Everything was cordoned off. As a customer you expect atleast the management to be little courteous about extending the services of the fire pit area. As a family you want to spend some chill time around fire pit specially on new years night and to our beyond imagination we were asked to leave since the hotel policy does not allow the area to be open till midnight? They have to close it by 11 pm ? For god sake it is only for one night and for one extra hour? On top of it the front desk threatened to call the police if we didnt leave as if we were staying free if cost? Are they serious? You charge customers $250 a night with minimal services provided and just for an easy access to the beach ? I would not recommend this place to anyone. Please stay away from this property its a complete ripoff!

  • Jan 03, 2018 by daringwomen

    We enjoyed our trip to SeaCrest very much! Our first room was ground level and lots of kids next door..I love kids, but we needed a quiet getaway so we asked to be moved. The room they moved us to was wonderful and had even more gorgeous views. Everything was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was okay, would have liked some more warm/hot options, and they ran out of orange juice almost every day (?)... Parking was a problem late at night. We loved having our dogs with us, everyone was wonderful to them. The beach was impossible for me to get to because I am disabled and can't manage the long stairs. We had to drive to get to an easily accessible beach, but if you are able-bodied you should have no problem, it is a lovely beach. We will be back, and please visit Mattie's Restaurant..it is AMAZING!

  • Jan 01, 2018 by AmericanTouristBen

    This place is a good 3.5 star hotel on a 5 star piece of land. Our room was clean and had no view, but we were fine taking our glass of wine to the fire pits to enjoy the ocean surroundings. There is a nice staircase that takes you from the cliff to the beach.

  • Jan 01, 2018 by Isis O.

    I don't even know where to begin, me and my fiancé stayed in the SPA Deluxe room and it was amazing!!!!!!!! The staff is great!!! The view from our patio was breathtaking it looks over the whole ocean, easy access to the beach, if I could give 10 stars I would definitely will be coming back to stay here!! Outstanding customer service and beautiful hotel.

  • Dec 31, 2017 by Johnny Shankle

    What a great hotel. The room was very nice but the veiw is the best part. Our room had a balcony facing the pier that is wonderful but i think we spent more time on the roof top patio with the fire pits and stars. Can't wait to come back.

  • Dec 31, 2017 by missy a.

    Why, oh why did you decide to put emergency room lighting all over your back lawn and pool areas? This totally destroys the evening ambiance of watching the glowing waves and the stars at night. Please fix this. You're not a crime scene, and you don't need to be visible from the space station.

  • Dec 30, 2017 by Teddy L.

    Best in Pismo I have stayed here twice and both times I didnt want to leave.  Get a room in the north tower.  The Signature Delux King has fantastic views from inside the room as well as the balcony.

  • Dec 30, 2017 by Bryan P.

    I see all the great reviews, but to be honest, we were totally disappointed. We checked into a room and was given nothing less than a basement room for $215 a night. If you leaned out the window far enough and squinted your eyes, you might see the ocean. The "free" breakfast was also disappointing. Nothing hot except the toast, bagels and freezer waffles (you toast yourself). One flavor of Yoplait yogurt only--peach. We were booked for two nights. Checked out after the first. Beware.

  • Dec 30, 2017 by Andrew G

    I hate leaving a negative review based on the actions of other guests. However, the overwhelming stench of pot that made its way into our room throughout the night and ruined what would have been a lovely stay at an oceanfront hotel. After the 3rd cloud of pot smoke made its way into our room in less than two hours, we were forced to close the sliding balcony door and we could no longer enjoy the nice view and wonderful sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below. We made a call to the helpful and very understanding front desk and they said they would dispatch someone from maintenance to find the source of the stink. The hotel needs to post signs throughout the hotel and balconies that reads “This is a no smoking hotel and that includes your dopey marijuana.” The sound proofing is somewhat poor as we heard someone pacing back and forth above us for a good hour. The room was newly renovated and clean. Sheets and pillows are only average and not especially comfortable. The grounds and walkway on the beautiful cliff above the accessible beach are beautiful. Sam was very kind at check in, ample parking.

  • Dec 30, 2017 by tedl01

    I have stayed here twice and enjoyed so much I didn't want to leave. Both times I stayed in the north tower. This most recent time in a signature deluxe king room - wow what a view both from inside the room and from the balcony. And you can hear the waves even with the balcony door closed. This is my idea of the best kind of ocean front hotel. Note that the middle part of the property was under renovation, but we did not hear a thing - so whatever they were doing was very quiet.

  • Dec 29, 2017 by Lorena V

    I needed to re-charge and relax and that's what I got at SeaCrest! Christina at front desk was friendly ans took time to make me feel welcome! Carmen from housekeeping took excellent care of us, always with a smile!

  • Dec 29, 2017 by JillClardy

    We arrived at 4 pm, which is the advertised check-in time, and were told that a room was not yet available and they couldn’t tell us how long it would take. They claim that check-in “starts at 4 p.m.” I have stayed at hundreds of hotels and have never heard of such a Policy; nor have I ever had to wait so long for a room. We checked back again after 40 minutes, and they still could provide no update. When I suggested that we would expect a discount for not having access to our room for the full time for which we booked it, the clerk just shrugged. We then took our luggage back to the car and went down to the beach for a walk. We finally got a call after 5 p.m. advising that our room was available. The staff did not apologize for the delay, nor offer any compensation for the delay. So we missed seeing the sunset from our ocean view room on the 3rd floor! This appears to be a staffing issue, as the housekeeping staff was still in the halls well past 5 p.m. cleaning rooms - and many of the rooms are out of commission due to renovations! The hotel is under extensive renovation, though I didn’t hear any noise or experience any discomfort as a result. It appears that all of the balconies on the main building are being replaced. The pool and patio area are also being upgraded, and are currently off limits. The room was comfortable, and we enjoyed having our dinner on the balcony overlooking the ocean. The breakfast room offers fresh fruit and juices and the usual assortment of bagels, muffins and toaster waffles. My favorite feature of this hotel is the staircase down to the beach. 100 steps and you’re on a beautiful, clean beach. The pier is about 1/2 mile away, and the beach goes on beyond there. You can watch surfers and families, and look for shells, and just breathe in the sea air.

  • Dec 29, 2017 by jt7103

    I stayed at the hotel during my birthday. The front desk staff was friendly and informative. The views are amazing. The hotel is very close to the beach. I was able to walk down to the beach. Overall I had a great experience during my stay.

  • Dec 28, 2017 by Diana W

    This was our first time at the Seacrest. Right now they are doing renovations to the hotel so not all the rooms are available. The pool area is also off limits. We had a lovely stay on the north side of the hotel. Beautiful ocena view and only steps to the ocean. It is also a dog friendly hotel. Very nice and we will be back.

    If you like dogs barking in the room next to yours and kids running up and down the halls screaming, then this is the spot for you. My family has been staying at this hotel for years but after our most recent stay, we've decided to stay somewhere else next time. There was  construction going on which was fine, it's off-season and we were warned. However, the staff in the office was less than pleasant which is a huge change for us as we've always been happy with the staff in the past. The nightstand in my room was dirty and sticky and one of my bath towels was terribly dirty/stained. I know the hotel can't control rude guests, but my family had booked multiple rooms on different floors and they all had the same complaint: kids screaming and running up and down the halls late at night and early in the mornings. The other problem was the dogs. Since we've been staying here, they've always been a dog friendly hotel and we've never had any problems with that. This time it was extremely frustrating as our neighbors had barking dogs in their rooms with them.

  • Dec 27, 2017 by Amit Dunsky

    Super nice hotel, just 1 minute of the main road, and 5 minutes from the beach area with all the great restaurants. Parking available at no extra charge, and rooms are clean and spacious ( although somewhat remote from the reception area). Great value for your money.

  • Dec 27, 2017 by marcyh624

    My family and I are planning on ringing in the New Year at Sea Crest along side about 15 other family members. There was confusion with rooms and dates, I felt like I was going to lose my mind! I called and spoke with Kristina 12/27, she was beyond helpful! There were a lot of rooms to go through, tons of name changes and other issues. She stood on the phone patiently for over 30 mins till all problems were resolved and we were good to go! Not one time did she make me feel like I was bothering her, I had a million questions and even called back with more! Everything question was answered with a smile through the phone. My family and I can't wait to spend our holiday weekend at Sea Crest, it has always been a special spot for us for over 20 years. This new year we will be taking my 94 yr old grandma back, and we can't wait! Thank you so much to Kristina, her kind voice, patience and attention to detail were more than appreciated.

    My mom and I decided last minute to take a mini roadtrip for Christmas. We tried to find a decent place that was dog friendly with oceanview room and came up empty due to the low availability. On Christmas Eve morning, I seen a room on a travel site and called them to confirm if it was still available starting that day. When I called, they were able to accomdate us in a room for a two night stay (I am so glad I called). It was the perfect getaway. The room was perfect for 2 adults and a dog. The view was incredible. The staff were amazingly friendly and even gave us a list of places open on Christmas Day. The work for the renovation was not happening, so it was not something we were bothered by. The firepits are night was a nice way to end the day. I can't wait to go back and would definitely stay here again.

    The rooms are acceptable and nothing special. Everything else about this place is awesome. That's a good thing you shouldn't spent time in your room with a location like this. Sea front views from every inch of the hotel. Great lounge areas with cozy fire features. Breakfast is full of selections for all needs. Canine friend combinations are a huge plus. Beach access and views are amazing. Just minutes from local shops and stores. Lots of restaurants with a wide variety to choose from.

  • Dec 22, 2017 by Kacey Coleman Hennings

    Do not stay here while it is under construction. I missed that in the description on expedia and it is horrible. The main building looks like it is about to fall down. Room is clean. Partial ocean view is obstructed by a palm tree so no view. Room was clean. Noise from 101 is loud.

  • Dec 21, 2017 by Christopher K

    I originally was here on a business retreat in November and was amazed by the view that I wanted to come back to fully enjoy it when I had some time off. After dealing with the Thomas Fire I decided I needed some R&R and booked the Deluxe OceanView Suite and took a friend who also desperately needed a mini vacation. The construction was a little of an inconvenience but they usually start around 8-9am and end around sunset which is the time I was out and about. They gave a $20 drink voucher for the inconvenience. The plus side was that the parking lot had plenty of spots and the fire pits weren’t jammed up al the time. They take longer then you'd expect to deliver the drinks so don't use it unless you are okay with hanging out in your room for awhile. The ocean view rooms are a must to book as it’s absolutely beautiful to wake up to. I left the patio door open when I slept so I could hear the sounds of the ocean at night. If you have bad knees then the stairs leading to the ocean can be a pain but it’s doable. They also have bikes to rent but decided to forgo that option to walk by the beach. The suite was nice and big and the area near the window is big enough to lay down and sleep on if you get lost in the ocean view or it’s too cold to stay on the balcony. I originally only planned one night because I was going to go explore wine tastings in other areas but was sucked into another night as the location was too beautiful. The only downside was that my room was not cleaned nor did we get a thirst aid voucher for not having it cleaned. Also, we only got one meal voucher despite booking more than one night and the Keriug was dirty inside so we did not use it. But other than that everything went really well.

  • Dec 20, 2017 by Jennifer H

    This is my 7th time staying here with my daughters and we can’t wait to come back! The staff is always so friendly and helpful and makes us feel right at home, as soon as we get here! My only complaint, because nothing is perfect, was the heater in the room. It was so loud and come on, what seemed like every 5 minutes, that we didn’t even turn it on for nights two and 3. But we were fine without it. The construction was actually a little bit exciting to see because we know that when we come back next time, we are going to love this place even more! Thank you, Seacrest, for another great stay that we will never forget!

  • Dec 19, 2017 by calatorre

    This place was great, had the most amazing view of the beach, we even got to see whales just as we stood at the top of the resort. Loved the direct beach access, and you are so close to many of the small shops and wonderful restaurants, no need to drive anywhere. The staff was great, we didn't have hot water in the shower, as soon as I went down to tell the front desk they immediately had someone come in and fix it within minutes. Even though there was a lot of construction due to the remodeling, they still made everything comfortable. December weather was absolutely beautiful. Will definitely be coming back.

  • Dec 19, 2017 by krystald1977

    I always enjoy staying at the SeaCrest! Great views, nice and friendly staff, close and convenient to restaurants and beach access. Complimentary full breakfast at neighboring restaurant and complimentary continental breakfast onsite. Nothing like hearing the waves from you room.

  • Dec 19, 2017 by emmalou812

    This was our first stay at SeaCrest. From the reviews, it looks like lots of folks are frequent flyers, so give their words more weight than mine. But I'll drop some thoughts. First, the good: friendly staff, drop-dead gorgeous views, and beautiful rooms. And I look forward to staying here again....um....later. Now, about the noise. The first night we were kept awake by a rambunctious group drinking and yucking it up on the patio below our deck. Coming from the East Coast, we were jet lagged but we weren't unreasonable. We stayed up until midnight hoping they'd call it a night. They didn't. We asked them to quiet down. They didn't. So, we had a fitful night's rest thinking the hotel would quiet down on Sunday. (And I will buffer what I'm going to say next with the fact that I was looking forward to escaping the noise and commotion of a HUGE construction project behind our house in Massachusetts.) So it was comical that on day 2 of our 3-nite stay we were awakened at 8AM by large machinery and burly men in hard hats. (Day 1 was a Sunday #blessed). Needless-to-say, I appreciated the hotel's peace offering (to all construction-weary guests) of a complimentary bottle of wine. I used it to try and forget about the above mentioned yucking, machinery noise & hard hats. But I won't be back until things have quieted down a bit. #sleeplessinMA

  • Dec 18, 2017 by Sherry S.

    It's lovely hotel.. just want to give heads up to the people visiting soon is there doing construction... we stayed Saturday-Monday. The weekend they didn't do construction but Monday's round 9am very loud noise.... but i was leaving to check out soon so i didnt mind. Breakfast was okay.. I had better but it was free so I cant complain. Room view wise.. [we booked w/ costal view) (#311) unfortunately there was a big palm tree branch blocking our view to the Beach unless you go all the way to the end corner lol. So I hope they can trim it for the next person that books this room for better view....  and I would avoid being put on the 3rd floor due to there is a 4th floor so of course if people have kids you can here them running upstairs and stomping... Here is some picture!

  • Dec 17, 2017 by jama4ca

    This is our fifth year staying at SeaCrest Oceanfront Hotel and we love it. We are always stay in the oceanfront room which is amazing. Hearing the waves hitting the shores all night is something everyone must experience. The rooms are beautiful and feels like home. We had the chance to experience the new model rooms which is stunning. The new rooms definitely feels more "beachy" with modern furniture and decor. The customer service at SeaCrest is wonderful from the moment you check in until checkout. The continental breakfast is pretty good but you also get a to have breakfast at Shell Cafe when you stay in an oceanfront room. Shell Cafe is delicious and get service. The hotel does make sure you are taken care of throughout your stay. We used the Thirst options which you can get drinks delivered to your room. I really love Seacrest and I can't wait for our next stay. If you have not stayed before you will love it. The hotel is remodeling right now so I can't wait to see all the enhancements. Check it out because you will love it!!!

  • Dec 17, 2017 by Jediprincess26

    Great location and staff was very friendly and helpful. Karley and Rachel were the best and always took care of us and our needs. Just a few things that we would like to mention. At night we like to hear the waves so we keep our patio door open. We stayed a week and had no trouble during the mid-week evenings. But as the weekend got closer we could not keep the door open due to the heavy marijuana smells coming in. Now since this is a "non-smoking" hotel, maybe a little more patrol during the evening hours would keep this from happening. The smell was so bad one evening that it woke us up from a sound sleep at 12am. We could clearly see which room the people were located in since they were smoking on their balcony so it wouldn't be hard for the staff to stop them if they would patrol the area at night and kindly remind them that there is no smoking except for designated areas away from the hotel. This would add greatly to the enjoyment of the other guests instead of having to bear the smell of smoke and ruin an otherwise great vacation. We are actually looking at other hotels to stay at next time because of this unfortunate situation. We usually stay here 2 or 3 times a year but if the smoking is allowed to continue, we will have to stay elsewhere as my husband is allergic to the smoke whether its cigarettes or marijuana.

  • Dec 13, 2017 by OCTodd

    I was here last year, and it's still the place to stay in Pismo. On the cliff, overlooking the ocean, great expansive grounds and places to enjoy the sun and coast. The staff is WONDERFUL, and jumps to help. The hotel is going through some improvements, and upgrades, so check with them on the progress. We stayed in the south tower and had a nice balcony that overlooked the water. The construction did not bother us at all or interfere with our stay...I highly recommend.

  • Dec 12, 2017 by Marlon J

    I've been to the SeaCrest twice before this stay with my family. It's always been a great environment for family, with the direct walking access to the beach, the pool/jacuzzi, the helpful staff, the quick and complimentary continental breakfast, and just minutes away from things to keep the family on the move (go carts in the sand dunes, old west cinnamon rolls, bowling downtown, etc. But this time I went with my fiance for a romantic getaway. I knew there would be construction, but to be honest it didn't really bother us. We still had a great view of the beach, the jacuzzi was still open (no way was I going into the pool during december so since that's closed off we didn't mind), and the beach access was still available. We had such a nice peaceful time during our stay. Beautiful and peaceful breakfast meals overlooking the ocean, nice walks along the beach for sunsets, and some relaxing time in the jacuzzi. We did make one day during our stay a trip up to Cambria which I would highly recommend visiting if you stay at the Seacrest and have a day to dedicate to a mini trip (only an hour away). We stopped at Nit Wit Ridge, Hearst Castle, Main Street Grille, Linn's Restaurant for a slice of Olallieberry Pie (a must try with a scoop of ice cream), and the elephant seals by the beach across from Hearst Castle, and the Cambria Christmas Market (amazing). We had both already been to the monarch butterfly grove, but that's definitely a good stop for both family and couples. I also appreciated the fact that they reward guests who opt out of the cleaning of their room. Per day they will give you credit to the hotel to buy drinks/food. Great incentive for guests to think green. All in all, I think I will be coming to SeaCrest much more often. I can't wait to see what it looks like after the remodeling as well. Thank you for the great stay SeaCrest!

  • Dec 10, 2017 by Lakashia N.

    My boyfriend and I spend two night at the SeaCrest celebrating his 32nd birthday. I decided to book with this hotel after reading the reviews. We stayed on the third floor with a partial ocean view. The view was amazing! We were a bit disappointed with the construction and the limited parking that was available. One thing I would recommend in the future advertising the hotel is under construction on the website. Besides the hotel being under construction and limited parking available I would definitely recommend this hotel.

  • Dec 09, 2017 by edwin c.

    Great hotel with the best views on the 3rd floor and with updated rooms. The service was  great and a big  thank you to the manager Daniele for accommodating us!! Will visit again.

  • Dec 09, 2017 by redkitty7

    *** The pool and two of the three hot tubs are closed for renovations I’ve stayed here at least 10-15 times over the last 3 years. Staff is extremely kind professional and helpful. It’s worth the upgrade for the deluxe ocean view rooms. I prefer the south tower since its closer to the sunrise. It’s dog friendly and they keep the grounds extremely clean. You can walk straight down to the beach via private staircase. Breakfast is free and actually good! Tons of fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, good coffee, cereals, oatmeal, bread, bagels, pastries, juices, and yogurt. Nice patio with heat lamps. And finally the rooms....very comfy beds and bedding. Balcony has chairs and small table. Flat screen TV with premium channels. Decent sized small fridge and microwave. I have stayed in several hotels in Pismo but the Seacrest is #1 for me. If you can, go Sunday-Thursday for the best rates....splurge and get the ocean view rooms!! The sound of the waves always relaxes me so I come home rejuvenated ❤️

    When we first got there it was late until I found a nasty mark on our comforter, so I pulled it off no biggie. I called front desk and explained the issue and they had put in a request for a new one. I entrusted housekeeping because it was made really nice until the day of check out I woke up with the same mark in my face. It looks like human feces!! I am not pleased with it, I can catch something... please check the time stamps in these photos attached. I was informed to send an email to management but they probably disregarded my complaint. So low of them!!! This hotel is a remolded motel, while it looks nice in the picture you still feel the old run down motel vibe. Definitely weird activities and noises throughout the night. And no cameras in the hallways; anyone is able to just walk in your wing with or without suspicion. Something is definitely fishy about the place. Haunted? Other than that, the view of the ocean is amazing.

    My fiancee and I planned a short weekend getaway and knew we wanted to go to the central coast. I had found this hotel on a general search because we had originally planned to bring our dog with us (we ultimately didn't, but it's good to know this hotel is pet friendly!). We arrived at the hotel a few hours earlier than check-in time and Karlee at the front desk was gracious enough to allow us to check in and ended up upgrading our room (which was wonderful because we were on the road for a few hours and wanted to relax ASAP). The deluxe ocean front room was AMAZING. There was a bay window in the corner that overlooked the ocean, which was my favorite thing, and the room was pretty big in size. The hotel has beach access via a staircase, a pool/jacuzzi (which is under construction) and lots of lounge areas outside that face the ocean. I did appreciate that the hotel went to great lengths to let me know that the property was under construction and was offering all guests a $20 credit for drinks which we definitely took advantage. Overall, I wanted a relaxing weekend at the beach and I got that. Granted, it was December when we stayed, so I can only imagine how busy this hotel must be during the summer months.

    Oh my goodness what a lovely seaside hotel.  I was a bit unexcited about the price tag but I knew I wanted oceanfront and a unique experience and this was certainly it.   I brought my mother and toddler here.  It's very "pismo" with the atmosphere and decor.  Everyone, staff and other guests, are so friendly, it was a refreshing change from the LA hustle and bustle. Our room... we were on the first floor, oceanfront.  We literally walked out of our room's patio onto the grass and had nothing but ocean views.  Absolutely breathtaking. The nearest restaurant was said to be walking distance.... well, if you have a senior citizen with you, or are not fond of "long" walking distances, then by all means, drive.  This was a walk that my mother and her friend could have done without and it would have been nice if the real distance of the restaurant had been shared by the staff :) Very family friendly with kids everywhere and lots of patient adults, which we appreciated. A head's up... if you are on the first floor, watch the drain pipe above your patio seating.  Someone from one of the upper floors poured their beer down their drainpipe and it went all over my poor mother.  We laugh about it still.  :)

    We've been coming to the Sea Crest for over 10 yrs now. Its been a family favorite! We always come off season, which is the absolute best!!! Sept-NOv..........We're moving out of state and knew we had to have one more, or a final farewell at our most precious resort before we left. I'm so thankful we were able to. As always our stay was amazing. The perks of a Nov Stay..... whales, dolphins, more sand dollars than you can even hold, PERFECT weather and fewer people. I'm sad this is our last who-ya here at the Sea Crest, but its given us more memories and a reason to want to come back next year on vacation!!!! (even though we'll have to fly)

    I fell in love with this hotel and staff. Talk about going the extra mile. My daughter and I have previously stayed at the Shore Cliff hotel in Pismo. It was our "go-to" spot to stay. However I had always wanted to stay at Seacrest ever since I was a kid. We could see the hotel from Shore Cliff and it looked to appealing with the string lights and fire pits. I knew my next trip, I had to try this place. So my birthday came along and I booked our stay. We stayed 4 nights, Nov 24-28th. I booked the hotel online at booking.com and there was a discrepancy with our booking. I booked a pet friendly room but apparently that wasn't what the hotel had us booked for. So we had to make accommodations for our dog who would no longer be able to come with us. I was kinda bummed. Mind you, they were doing some renovations at the hotel which I was made aware of a month or so ago. The pool and south spa was closed but the north spa was still open so it wasn't a big deal. They were giving us 20 dollars in in-room beverages as an inconvenience. We check into our room and I step out onto the balcony to discover that our ocean view was really a construction view of tractors and what not. I was super bummed. I had always wanted to stay here and was very disappointed. I called the front desk and they told us they would be able to move us into a different room tomorrow and for the rest of our stay. The next morning come along and we get moved into our new room...I was blown away! They had moved us into a deluxe suite over looking the fire pits, pier and Pacific Ocean. It was phenomenal! My daughter slept on the couch overlooking a panoramic view of the ocean. It was truly amazing. Along with a great complimentary breakfast each day, the fire pits, the views, the stairs down to the beach, and extraordinary staff, we will definitely be back and our now Cresties for life. Thank you for making my birthday stay unforgettable!:)

    I was in town for business in San Luis Obispo and found a great option for staying nearby at the coast. I was very delighted with the room, the view and the amenities but most importantly the personalized service I received at every turn from Rachel. She not only checked me in but anticipated my every need from hot tips for food nearby, the services the hotel offered and took care of my next booking. I felt like an honored guest. I am actually looking forward to my return next week. --a happy business traveler

    Driving up, you notice the resort-like lounge area of chairs and sofas under an awning at the entrance. Check-in was fast and efficient. All of the staff we encountered from front desk to housekeeping to breakfast buffet workers were all friendly and helpful. We had an ocean view room. This was decently-sized corner room with a king bed. The spacious balcony had an expansive view north of the grounds, sea cliffs and ocean. The hotel is located on the cliff above Pismo Beach with a long staircase leading down to the beach. The beach between the hotel and the Pismo Beach pier is accessible during high tide. Exploring the beach north off the hotel, which includes numerous caves, is only accessible at low tide. There was a large patio behind the center of the hotel as well as a large lounge area above the cliffs. Both of these areas included gas fire-pits that made them comfortable for enjoying the continental breakfast, an evening drink or just to relax and enjoy the view.

  • Nov 26, 2017 by Campuzanotribe

    Can't believe that even under remodel how wonderful this hotel is. This hotel litterly has every amenity. From pool and spa to beach access and breakfast to coffee and tea and cookies even bbq pits and board games. To say I'm impressed is an understatement. We love this hotel and can't wait to return again.

    If not for the staff and views, I’d give the hotel 4 stars. The Seacrest is undergoing renovations and we got an email to that effect after reserving a room for three nights. It wasn’t clear though, how much the renovations would affect us in our room. I probably should have called to see. Anyway, the first room we got was in the north complex, near most of the construction, which had knocked off for the day by the time we got there. The room had a good view but many things were worn or dated. When we went to bed, you could hear lots of walking/running noise from above, so we didn’t get to sleep until late then the construction started up at 8, so not much sleep. We asked for a different room the next day and there was a jacuzzi room available in the south complex, on the far corner from construction. It was an extra $40 a night but we took it. The room was much nicer, bigger, less worn, with a even better view and a spectacular reading nook surrounded by windows, where I spent as much time as possible when not on the beach. The jacuzzi is huge, in one end of the room. Some buttons were missing and while you could fill it, none of the available buttons worked, so it was just a big soaking tub. Disappointing. Still, the sound of the ocean (no construction noise at all) and views went a long way to soothing us. The balcony and nook were fantastic for sighting whales frolicking off the coast (note to self- bring binoculars next time). We did enjoy the last two nights in this room and slept well. At checkout I did request a discount since we were a little irritated to pay so much more to avoid construction noise and for the jacuzzi that didn’t work, and the manager promptly took off the extra charge for both nights, which was great. I do understand that a hotel must renovate but when it’s your vacation and not inexpensive, it’s hard. Both times we talked to staff, they were friendly and accommodating so we hope to come back and enjoy the views again.

    Great hotel. Had fabulous room, great views of the ocean. Enjoyed sitting on the veranda taking in the views. Such a relaxing place. Staff were friendly, check-in quick. Can't comment on the food as we had room only and ate out. This is a place we wished we had stayed for 2 nights so that we could explore some more. Plenty of parking

  • Nov 22, 2017 by vickymiselos

    Our car broke down here the day before Thanksgiving. Oh and it was getting cold and we have two toddlers and a baby. We went inside to ask the front desk associate, Jacelyn, if we could hang out in the lobby to keep the kids out of the cold. She kindly replied that we could and she offered us all water, coffee and hot chocolate ffree of charge. It turns out we had to leave the car in the parking lot while family picked us up. Jacelyn consulted with her supervisor, Cheyloe, who allowed us to leave the car while we tried to figure out plans for moving the broken car. While here, we noticed how beautiful the premises were and there were amazing views of the ocean along with a cozy fire pit area for relaxing. But the best thing was the welcoming and friendly ambience of the hotel and staff. We would definitely return for a vacation here the next chance we get. Thank you cheyloe and Jacelyn!

  • Nov 21, 2017 by Cyntia Steiner

    Currently under construction. Gave us a $20 voucher for inconvenience. Beds super comfortable. Wonderful beach access. Love the staff attitude and feel of place. You don't feel like they are trying to get more money out of you for every little thing.

  • Nov 21, 2017 by Beans V.

    Best place to just let go and relax. Restaurant near by,  beach is easily accessible at night. Will go again.

  • Nov 21, 2017 by A H

    Great location and views. Dog amenities and easy lawn access very good. It will be nice once remodel & pool upgrade complete. Complementary continental breakfast offers a lot of choices and hotel has a lot of freebies too. Professional staff, very helpful with resolving billing issue.

  • Nov 20, 2017 by Beverly1208

    Loved the Seacrest - the views, breakfast, cozy fire pits and walk on the beach. Wish we had stayed longer as we were on our way to Carmel. Loved the stair climb to the beach. While eating breakfast on patio saw dolphins playing and jumping and doing flips! Lots of sand dollars on beach as well.

  • Nov 18, 2017 by Jenni C

    SeaCrest is amazing! Unlike many other Pismo hotels, SeaCrest offers a staircase down to the beach directly from the hotel property. It’s a quick and beautiful walk to the Pismo peir and downtown from the hotel along the beach. Amenities are great, including a pool, two hot tubs, big rooftop deck, and fire pits around the property. Continental breakfast includes toast, bagels, pastries, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, juices and coffee (among other things!). I highly recommend SeaCrest!!

  • Nov 17, 2017 by Diane D

    We stayed at the Deluxe OceanFront room, we had gorgeous ocean view with palm trees in front of our hotel room. We walked to the Pismo Beach from hotel room through a few flights of stairs. Everywhere, the cliffs, fire pits, plants, benches, piers, the big rock and the beach are so beautiful. Really enjoy our stay!

  • Nov 16, 2017 by bpsyth

    Beautiful room, grounds were under renovation, but the workers were all caring and sensitive to our needs and personal safety, hotel staff friendly and helpful, and the morning breakfast was delicious. Thank you for providing the free breakfast, and the beautiful setting in which to enjoy eating. We loved the gas fire pits also. We can hardly wait to return next spring.

  • Nov 15, 2017 by Rrivera0053

    First time stay and absolutely loved it, room was awesome as was the view of the ocean from our room. Not to far from the pier and had beach access. Fire pits were nice to sit at during the night while listening to the crashing of the waves. Overall a great experience and we would recommend SeaCrest to anyone.

  • Nov 14, 2017 by Charlotte M.

    I can't even begin to say how incredible this hotel is. By far the most wonderful hotel I have ever stayed at. The views from our jacuzzi king room on the 4th floor were to die for. The jacuzzi was just as big as the king bed and was utterly luxurious. The room was huge with a balcony and stunning sitting area with windows. We even had a side window that saw the mountain in back of the hotel. Pismo Beach is dreamy and I can't wait to go back someday. I talk about this hotel all the time! It's the most beautiful layout ever. The pool and outdoor jacuzzi were wonderful, and breakfast was superb. This hotel tops any hotel!

  • Nov 14, 2017 by Alan B

    I was in town for a conference and my client happily arranged for me to stay here. I had a beautiful, and large corner suite, with a great ocean view. Being the end of October, it wasn’t beach weather, but the convenient heaters make sitting outside possible. They’re working through a renovation, but it’s not intrusive at all, and I look forward to coming back when it’s done (and in warmer weather!). The staff was friendly, check in was easy, and my room was comfy and modern.

  • Nov 14, 2017 by Jennifer U.

    Favorite hotel in pismo. Beds are great, rooms are clean and staff is friendly. Stairs to the beach!

  • Nov 12, 2017 by ViviMCer20

    The Seacrest is such a wonderful hotel! It is clean and the rooms are wonderful. Came with my husband and children and really enjoyed our room overlooking the ocean. Breakfast is included and the front desk is very helpful. We will surely return!

  • Nov 10, 2017 by Shana Diallo

    Regardless that there was construction going on during our 3 day stay, the Seacrest was a wonderful hotel and my husband and I can't wait to return!
    The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are clean, modern, and comfortable with all the amenities you could ask for (refrigerator, microwave, etc).
    Our favorite thing about the hotel was the spectacular view from our room! Watching the sunset from our balcony or from the rooftop firepits was breathtaking.
    It's always nice to stay at hotels that provide free breakfast. Though this is supposedly a continental breakfast, there is something for everyone to fill them up and start the day with a healthy hearty breakfast. There is fruit, pastries, bagels, waffles, toast, cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, coffee, juice, and teas. Now, if they could get cinnamon rolls from Old West Cinnamon rolls, it would be the PERFECT breakfast!
    The location is so close to the hub of Pismo Beach and has many close amazing restaurants! The beach access allows you to take a scenic walk along the beach to the pier downtown. The stairs leading up and down to the beach are long and steep, this could be a little tough for those with physical limitations, but the view from the top..... my goodness!
    We had wonderful service from all who worked at the hotel and they even did a little something special for our anniversary.
    We will be back because I am claiming it as "our spot."

    Even though they were in the middle of construction/remodel this hotel was a delight to visit. The front desk staff was friendly and welcoming. The facilities were generally clean, however the construction (not the noise which was only slight, but the esthetics) was a little distracting with orange barrier webbing, tarps, and diggings. The room was very clean. Simple decor. Bed was very comfortable, not a 10, but a decent 8.8 - 8.9. An awkward part of the design is the neighbors airconditioning unit was on our patio, and ours on the next and so on. So even if yours isn't on, the nice blissful sound of the ocean can be thrown off by the humming of the neighbors AC. Only watched for a bit later at night but the t.v. was a bit small for today's standards in similar types of rooms. Was kind of surprised there were no local magazines/guides of restaurants and things to do etc. Yeah, there's always the directory for recommendations but so often they are a bit dated. The overall feel of the grounds/pool area is that this is more for family's/groups than couples, not that it didn't have a certain romantic feel just sitting looking out over the ocean with a bottle of wine. But paths didn't "meander" like they might, they go straight to the pool or straight to the stairway to beach...and what could be nice gardens of any sort are just little grouping of grass lawns. But of course that part is totally subjective. The breakfast in the morning is simple continental but adequate. While we didn't use it they did have some nice additional amenities include bike rentals and wine tours available. While slightly critical of a couple minor things this is our third hotel in the area in the past 8 months and probably our favorite.

  • Nov 08, 2017 by Erika Paling

    Although the property is gorgeous, the rooms clean and well appointed, and the staff friendly, construction put a damper on the stay for us. The pool and one spa are closed. There is scaffolding up everywhere and orange construction fences. I woke up before 8am on my "vacation" because workers had started working loudly already. I went on my balcony to enjoy the morning view and was greeted by a man standing on scaffolding staring directly in to my balcony.

    I understand construction needs to be done, I just would have liked to know about it before my stay. I also wouldnt have paid for an ocean view if I knew it included a construction worker. Overall, I'd definitely stay again - once the construction is finished.

  • Nov 07, 2017 by Jyoty P

    Breakfast provided. It's Good. View is great. Facility in general is well maintained. Love the view but paid lots for what we got. We checked in late in evening. Excited about the stay. Got to the room and has at least 50+ Flies! Called front desk and sent someone with insecticide said it's not harmful. I have a 6 years old chasing flies for 2 hours to save his mom! Gave me goosebumps whole night. Couldn't sleep well at all. Disappointed for what we paid for. Told the front desk again next morning to see what they would do to compensate the damage of my stay. Didn't even get an apology.

  • Nov 06, 2017 by Will C.

    I booked a king room with an ocean view, and was put into a normal queen room due to renovations. I asked if I could be compensated for the price difference in rooms and they told me no, but offered 7 beers as compensation. When I got home the next day, I found that they charged me for the beer. I feel like I was ripped off and taken advantage of. Definitely wouldn't stay here again based on my experience. Wish I stayed somewhere else.

  • Nov 06, 2017 by tamarag1863

    First timers staying at the Sea Crest. We usually stay at the Kon Tiki but they were sold out. We are soooo glad we had the opportunity to try something new. Didn't realize how much better we could have it until we actually did at the Sea Crest. The friendly service was far superior then your competition. Even with the pool area torn up, the grounds were layed out nicer and were much more welcoming as we walked around the property. We enjoyed the beverage service delivered to our room and took it down to the fire pit for a lovely visit with family. We come over quite often from Bakersfield. We are happy to say we found a new place to stay during our visits to Pismo.

  • Nov 03, 2017 by tomjbeavers

    Enjoyed our stay for one night at a beautiful property and in a very quiet, comfortable room. This is what one would expect at a classy resort hotel and they don't disappoint. Pismo Beach is a great destination with the beach and also local wineries and beautiful landscapes. Will return often to this hotel.

  • Nov 01, 2017 by Elizabeth L.

    I spoke to a women by the name of Rachel, she was absolutely incredible. One thing I truly appreciate is that she is very informative, professional, and calm voice when trying to gather information. She is the perfect employee to have as your front face at the desk upon arrival. Thank you for having her as your employee and she deserves a raise!

  • Oct 29, 2017 by R V

    The room had a bad smell from the moment we arrived. Access to the room was the equivalent of steerage on a ship. The corridors were lined for hours (and well past midnight) with trolleys full with all the hotel's dirty laundry. The laundry room doors were constantly open in front of our room with staff working and being quite noisy. This was definitely back-of-the-house but off the main corridor into the rooms. Really a bad image. When we complained we pretty much got back a "sorry" and that was it. We would never come back to this hotel nor would we recommend it. Great location, but that can't offset poor management and a sub-par property.

  • Oct 29, 2017 by Shirley T

    The rooms are standard though almost all have balconies or exterior space to sit and gaze at the ocean; but the amenities, location and especially service are stellar. They were very full in early October so we moved twice during our 5 day stay but the desk staff: Danielle, Christina, Chyloe and Jacklyne, were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and, most of all, willing to do all they could to make our stay better. Lots of families, dogs and many repeat visitors. A good pool, two hot tubs, incredible views--whales, penguins and even a sea otter. It was heaven. We will go back.

  • Oct 29, 2017 by akgirl51997

    Husband, daughter and I stayed 1 night here. I had a hard time deciding where to stay in Pismo and made and cancelled reservations at several neighboring hotels before deciding on the Seacrest. I guess it turned out fine but have mixed emotions about the hotel. Parking was good and free. the setting is nice and I really liked the grounds oceanside at this hotel. We really enjoyed having the direct beach access via a well-maintained staircase. This access was one of the reasons I chose the Seacrest and it was better than expected. The breakfast had lots of offerings and was better than expected also. We appreciated that they had whole pieces of fruit. Coffee was good too.The room was a mixed bag. It was nicely decorated but appeared bigger in photos than it turned out to be and was a tad small but adequate. They did have a frig and microwave. Bathrooms was fine although not a fan of a spray tap on the sink. I assumed it has something to due with water conservation. the water may be soft because it was a tad hard to feel squeaky clean. Not the hotels fault I'm sure just a comment. We had a partial ocean view but I was disappointed that when sitting in the chairs the rail was right at eye level so there was no real beach view unless I stood or severely slumped in chair to see below the railing. I am sure code dictates how high the rail must be but a better designed railing could have allowed for a real view. The pool and one hot tub were under construction as anticipated as well as some parts of the hotel itself. They offered a $20 beverage credit to make up for the inconvenience which was nice. We wanted to take advantage of the evening fire pits (they have several ) but all the lit ones were crowded. We went to the roof top terrace and while they had firepits there none were lit which was a big disappointment as this was the other main reason I chose the Seacrest. That was a nice area to sit too with loads of space if they had just bothered to light them. So overall, I had a few minor disappointments and a few expectations exceeded but I was most disappointed in the front desk staff. the person I encountered in the afternoon about check-in was a bit difficult and snarky. The staff person later in the day when we did check in was nice. checking out though we encountered a bit more attitude too. We had been given information by someone over the phone at guest services the night before which turned out to be wrong given they wanted to charge us for something we were told was included. Ultimately management did the right thing by removing the charge but the front desk gals seemed irritated they had to deal with our issue. So grounds, beach access, location and breakfast all get an A. Room and management a B. front desk a C.

  • Oct 28, 2017 by Samwalkerpi

    We arrived at around 2.30pm after a long drive. We were advised by reception that we could not check in until 4pm, which is fair enough if that is the policy. When I asked what could we do, I was told we could go out. I said as we had just had a long drive and didn't know the area that was not an option. I was told if I had an American number they could ring me and let me know when a room was free, as I am from the UK obviously that wasn't an option, how to welcome a guest from the UK! The receptionist did not tell me where I could go on the property nor show me where the amenities are, even advise where the one toilet was. I later found out that free hot drinks were only two feet away from her but she also failed to mention that . We went away into the unknown to return at 4pm. We did get a room, the room is nice, ample room and amenities. Some issues the door in doesn't close unless you put some force behind it. The bathroom door opens unless you lock it, and bangs into the glass mirror, the in room coffee maker doesn't work. The highway is noisy, along with the noise of guests up and down the hallways, then the cleaners start pushing heavy trolleys outside from 7am. Breakfast is included there is a good choice, but no seating. There is a small number of tables outside but not ideal on a foggy morning, best thing is take your tray back to your room. This was the sixth hotel on our California tour, and we did not receive the warm Californian welcome we have become accustomed to. I wouldn't come back, if you are from the UK this is the equivalent of a travel lodge with a view.

  • Oct 27, 2017 by Valérie Lefèvre

    Friendly staff, room clean and quite big. A bit too noisy as we had a room with the view on the parking and the main road. Comfortable beds. I will recommend this place.

  • Oct 26, 2017 by Rob Burns

    Wow.
    Get a room with a balcony overlooking the ocean and watch the sunset go down. Or just sit outside by one of the many fires.
    Room is beautiful and has a large Jacuzzi.
    Complimentary breakfast and and drink was included in our package.
    Beach below hotel is magical.
    You can see the management have really thought about all the details to make everything special.
    Right, I'm finishing this review and getting back to listening to the ocean.

  • Oct 26, 2017 by norminoakley

    My wife and myself have birthdays in October, so we went back to the SeaCrest Oceanfront Hotel to celebrate! This time we brought our daughter and granddaughter! They had a great time, our granddaughter really enjoyed the pool! Our room was great, a full view of the ocean, we even saw whales breaching! Sleeping with the glass door open, listening to the ocean was so relaxing! The staff was great addressing any needs we had, which was minimal! We will be coming back here as long as we stay healthy! Turning 75 years old wasn’t so bad!!

  • Oct 25, 2017 by Katie Metraux

    The rooms are nicely appointed and many have a stunning view of the ocean. The beds and furniture are comfortable. The pillows are a bit too firm, but hey, you can't have everything perfect. The decor is simple and elegant.

    You can access the beach via a set of stairs directly from the hotel property. Pismo Beach Pier is less than a mile away once you are on the beach. I've stayed here several days over 3 years and have always been greeted with a smile.

    There are k-cup coffee makers in the rooms and 2 free bottles of water.

    The hotel itself is very clean and in a fantastic location, with great views out onto Pismo Beach. You can also walk along the side of the road or along the beach into Pismo Beach. I’ve rated this as a 3 because we didn’t actually get the rooms we’d booked (x2 beds in each room) instead we got 1 room with 2 queen size beds and the other with a king size bed. Now this wasn’t a major problem because we were only here two nights, but ultimately it wasn’t what we’d booked. Upon arrival we were also told by the receptionist about the facilities the hotel has, such as a swimming pool, however when we went to use this the following day we were told by the same receptionist that the pool was closed because they were expanding it. This would have been nice to know when she first checked us in and was telling us about the hotel facilities.

    The ocean views are absolutely amazing! We came for a visit to Cal Poly Family Weekend and were delighted with a relaxing and enjoyable time at SeaCrest. The location is great for access to local attractions and the property is immaculate with so many ways to unwind whether by the pool and spa, in the multiple patio areas, or a quick walk to the beach.

    This is a five star review, even though I had an issue. Upon arrival at our room, our key cards didn't work. Went back to the front desk, they re-keyed and sent me back up. The keys still didn't work. Went back to the front desk again, re-keyed again, and the front desk employee came back up with us. Keys didn't work again. Front desk employee tried their master key, but that didn't work either, so they called the maintenance person. After about 30 min waiting to get into the room, the maintenance person arrived with a working master key...so we were finally able to get into the room. The maintenance person worked on the door lock for about an hour, even calling in the supervisor who was on their day off. We went out for dinner while the maintenance people were working, as it was taking quite some time. The front desk staff called to tell us the door lock could not be fixed, and there were no other rooms to which we could be moved. The best option was to stop by the front desk every time we needed to get into our room, which is what we agreed. Although the front desk staff was great, it was very inconvenient not to be able to access room whenever we wanted. The morning manager, however, made a very generous adjustment to our bill to acknowledge the inconvenience. When service failures occur, service recovery is the big test. The Seacrest staff did a fantastic job at resolving the issue, so I must give full credit for how they handled. That being said, the room was awesome. Clean, quiet, right along the ocean with a walking path and steps down to the beach. The outdoor lounge areas, with the fire pit, was enchanting. In the morning, we woke up and saw whales breeching in the ocean. I would stay here again, and look forward to our next visit.

    We had a great stay while visiting our daughter at Cal Poly. Just 15 minutes from campus. Easy access to stairs to the beach- nice for morning walks . Room was nice with a fantastic view. Breakfast was ok. Can't wait to stay again.

  • Oct 20, 2017 by saruffino

    Came to Pismo Beach to escape the smoke filled skies of Sonoma County. Seacrest helped to make our escape perfect. From check in to check out everything was as promised. Nice room, comfortable bed, and friendly staff.

  • Oct 20, 2017 by Jumaxel

    Check in : 18 September 2017 Check out: 19 September 2017 From San Diego To San Fransisco we stayed here for 1 night. You must stay at this hotel if you visit Pismo Beach. Pro: Friendly Staff Nice view Walk to the beach Free Parking & Breakfast Room very quite and clean Con: Room a bit outdated

  • Oct 20, 2017 by 113bdw

    My husband and I really loved our recent stay at SeaCrest,staying in a tower room with beautiful unobstructed full ocean views as well as watching the sunsets from our balcony and hearing the sounds of the ocean. There are stairs with direct access to a long walkable beach. The room was spacious and very clean. The included breakfast had many items to choose from. We will definitely be back again!

  • Oct 19, 2017 by andy0680

    We stayed at the Seacrest for one night, whilst we travelled North along the PCH on our Honeymoon. As we checked out the following day the housekeeper was waiting to enter our room. Shortly after we realized that we’d left my wife’s new Bluetooth Bose speaker in the room. We called within a couple of hours to ask if they could send it to us at our expense, however it took almost a week to get a response, which was that they didn’t find it!!!! I would advise you to NOT leave anything in your room of value, if you’d like to ever see it again

  • Oct 19, 2017 by Brandon T

    Great location! And the view is outstanding! We were very pleased with the beach access, as well. Once you’re on the beach, it’s not too far to the Pismo pier. And it makes for a romantic walk to and fro with the beautiful Pacific waves crashing. I highly recommend the Seacrest. You’ll be pleased with your stay.

  • Oct 18, 2017 by Ihearthoward

    If you have kids - this is the place for you! Lots of green space to run around, next to the ocean, pool, games, etc. Now for two people on their honeymoon - not so much. The view was beautiful mind you but a LOT of kids! Also - the breakfast was very very basic (no hot food at all) we actually thought it was the worst Continental breakfast we've ever seen (howard johnson would beat this) The other thing that we were a bit turned off by was check out is 11am. We asked twice if we could extend our check out until 1pm (we were willing to pay if need be) and were told both times no - they had a quick turnaround because they were busy. Keep in mind this place must have 200-300 rooms at least. They couldn't offer two hours extra to two people on their honeymoon?! We were hoping for the late checkout because we wanted to shower after our ocean kayaking that morning. So instead we had to drive to our next stop (Long Beach). They didn't seem to interested in making an exception. I should also note that I emailed this hotel twice before our honeymoon asking about a later check out and that it was our honeymoon and I didn't get a reply at all. Their customer service is lacking in some areas (compared to other hotels around the same price point). Again, if you have kids - stay here! If you don't, find somewhere else. We loved Pismo Beach though. Great little spot on the Ocean!

  • Oct 17, 2017 by Marilyn V.

    My husband & I spend this past weekend here for our honeymoon as we got married on 10-07-2017, & we had an amazing weekend. We loved everything from our signature deluxe room to the jacuzzi & the walks on the beach. Everything was perfect, we definitely want to go back with our kids!!

  • Oct 17, 2017 by kris10robin

    The room was awesome! The view was spectacular! And the vibe was sensational! I loved staying here and would definitely book again! The showers were hot! The tv has cable and the hotel had a decent breakfast and coffee all day long!

  • Oct 16, 2017 by Brett Cassells

    Decent room although the walls were very thin. Party next door was very loud. Continental breakfast was less than desirable. No scrambled eggs, no bacon, no sausage. Make sure you ask for a room with a view. We faced another wall and saw a sliver of the ocean from the side. Very expensive so I'd expect a bit more than what I got. Great location for views when you're on their property however. Access to the beach below. Would consider coming back if other options were exhausted.

  • Oct 16, 2017 by Shapazian

    Overall Thumbs Up!!! The Hotel was great, great hospitality and great services. The views of the ocean were amazing, especially from our room. Great for the whole family and an easy walk to the beach!!! Our child loved the pool and the Jacuzzi bubble bath in the room itself

  • Oct 16, 2017 by uneelima

    The stay is amazing. We stayed for 1 night and we had a ocean front view. Breakfast is good. Pool is good. We spent nice time in the hot tub. This place is very easy access to beach.Over all we had a wonderful time in the hotel.

  • Oct 15, 2017 by Vicki M

    Been visiting Pismo for years. Always stayed at the same hotel until we recently discovered SeaCrest. The SeaCrest is our new go to hotel. Very clean, lovely grounds, friendly staff, beautiful views. A little more expensive than where we use to stay, but worth every penny. Can’t wait to return.

  • Oct 14, 2017 by Manureva2...

    Nous avions heureusement une chambre Océan front ; la vue Est juste grandiose accès à la plage depuis l'hôtel . Ce que je n'ai pas apprécié c'est de payer 349 $ pour cette chambre double car La qualité n'était pas! J'avais envie de repartir aussitôt ... Accueil digne d'un motel ; aucun service , pas de bar aucun endroit pour prendre un verre devant cette vue , il est paraît t il en rénovation ? Le petit dejeuner est servi tout En plastique ! La piscine paraît idyllique sur la photo de l'hôtel ; c est minuscule !!! Quelques mètres à peine Très déçue ... ah j'ai oublié la moquette dans la chambre très vieillotte pour 359$ ...

  • Oct 12, 2017 by Michael H

    This was our fourth trip over the last 12 months, since first discovering this incredible Ocean Front Hotel. I hate to sound like a broken record but each trip has brought us such joy and pleasure, and we attribute a large part of that joy to SeaCrest Hotel and their Wonderful Staff. We have a favorite room which has a large jacuzzi in it, located on the fourth floor. You can almost throw a rock off the balcony into the ocean, and every night listen to the waves crashing into the shoreline. Everything is so close and easy to get to right from our room. They have a wonderful daily continental breakfast with a large variety. We walk right out of the hotel and down the staircase to the beach and love walking to Pismo Beach Pier while collecting shells and sand dollars. Thank you so very much Danielle for your warm and friendly smile each day and answering all our many questions. Thank you Cheyloe for the late check out and helping us with directions and picking out our SeaCrest Souvenirs. We have already booked another week for our wedding anniversary and can hardly wait to go back. Thanks again..

  • Oct 11, 2017 by Jeffrey Quadro

    Been coming here since I was born. Every year for the week before memorial day. Best hotel in the area. Amazing view, great outdoor pool and hot tubs. Wonderful rooms that are very accommodating to all needs. Easy beach access day and night.

  • Oct 09, 2017 by rustygrecian

    This was the best value hotel on our Pacific Highway trip. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable and the view from the terrace and swimming pool area was stunning. The hotel offered no bar or restaurant but allowed you to order take out pizza etc and consume your own drink on the terrace. Alternatively the centre of Pizmo has a number of good bars and restaurants. The free coffee and breakfast which could be enjoyed on the terrace were also a nice touch. I would recommend this hotel.

  • Oct 09, 2017 by Jodi P

    Since our daughter became a Cal Poly Mustang in 2014 we have been visiting the central coast quite frequently! We are so blessed! We absolutely love this resort and hope to come back often (even after graduation)! The grounds are breathtaking, the breakfast is wonderful and it is truly a place where one can relax and escape reality!

  • Oct 08, 2017 by Jerry S

    Trevligt hotell med fina rum. Oerhört vacker utsikt över havet och solnedgången. Mkt bra service! Frukosten var ok. Vi var en familj med 2 vuxna och två barn som bodde där och det var väldigt många barnfamiljer som bodde där. Ett riktigt bra familjehotell om man har barn med sig. Ville man äta på någon restaurang fick man gå eller åka bil en bit in till Pismo Beach. Där fanns det ganska gott om restauranger.

  • Oct 07, 2017 by Daniel I.

    Following our wedding in June, my wife and I drove up the coast from LA to Pismo for our mini-moon. We had originally booked an ocean view room at the nearby Shore Cliff Hotel, but when we checked in there we were met with a damp, smelly, dark room, with a very disappointing obstructed/partial ocean view, and an incredibly inhospitable and rude staff. Upset and distressed, we checked out immediately, had our room refunded, and booked the closest available room we could find on booking.com -- which happened to be the SeaCrest.   A few minutes later we entered the SeaCrest and were immediately taken by what a nicer experience it was. It was bright, colorful, clean, and the staff was warm and welcoming. Reggie helped check us in and we cannot thank him enough. He noticed that we had just booked our room less than ten minutes before arriving. We told him the story of what had just happened and he said "Let me see what I can do." Reggie was able to upgrade us to a Spa Deluxe Room, which was one of the largest and most luxurious hotel rooms I've ever stayed in (my jaw dropped when I saw the room). The room was clean, bright, and colorful with an amazingly comfortable king size bed. But what truly made it special was the huge, personal jacuzzi tub and the balcony with an absolutely gorgeous ocean view (we left the balcony door open and slept to the sound of the waves every night).   The location cannot be beat and the convenient beach access is a real plus. The complimentary continental breakfast is nice, but watch out for those seagulls when eating outside, one swooped down and took a hardboiled egg right off my wife's plate while she wasn't looking. We loved our time at the SeaCrest. We left relaxed and refreshed and we can't thank Reggie enough, he made our moon unforgettable.

  • Oct 07, 2017 by Gary G

    My wife and I are on a 2 month western states tour and have stayed in luxury hotels and National Park lodges. We have enjoyed our stay at Seacrest equal to or better than any lodging we have visited. Our room 342 was ocean front with a balcony facing those beautiful sunsets. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating.

  • Oct 04, 2017 by Ben W

    Had such a great time at SeaCrest Oceanfront hotel in Pismo! We stayed in a deluxe king spa room and it was everything we had expected to get from seeing the website photos/description and more. Our room was spacious, had a huge spa/jacuzzi tub that fit 2 adults easily. It's a big spa tub not one of those bath/whirlpool tub things. The bathroom was good (nothing amazing) but had everything you need and was clean. The room also had a cool day bed area near the balcony that was surrounded by windows and had amazing views of the ocean. Last but not least was the view of the ocean from the balcony. Wow! We were on the third floor and you couldn't ask for a better view of the ocean and evening sunsets...All I can say is wow! You will here the ocean waves all day and all night....It's great..You will not mind paying what you pay for this room when walk through the door and see the ocean view from your balcony. The hotel has 3 hot tubs and one pool..I do wish their pool was heated...if it is a heated pool it may not have been heated when we were there, was cold but not freezing cold. 3 built in gas BBQ's , lot's of outdoor seating with fire pits, and also a rooftop area for hanging out as well. Also has beach access (lighted stairway down to beach). And for you runners/walkers out there a walk from the bottom of the beach access stairs to the pismo dunes area is just over 2 miles (over 4 mi round trip) Will return to this hotel. We had such a great time. ps..Their breakfast is ok IMO could be better and I've heard it may get better soon.....The hotel staff was really nice, they really were....The cleaning crew does a great job too!

  • Oct 04, 2017 by misslindieloo

    We enjoyed our stay here but there are some things about this hotel that just let it down which is a shame because the location is out of this world- not to mention the view! We had an ocean view room with a balcony which was amazing. The room was nice and comfortable. The hotel has no bar facility so if you are at the pool or sitting out you have to go back to your room and order some beers, then wait for them to arrive. Staff were mostly helpful apart from 1 or 2- no towels at the pool area and we were told they would be with us in 10 mins. We had to ask 3 times before they came over an hour late. This wouldn't usually bother us but when you are paying 250 a night you have certain expectations

  • Oct 03, 2017 by GKK108

    We have come to stay at Seacrest a number of times over the last 18 years, starting even before they had the north and south towers. It has always been a pleasure to sit and watch the ocean, walk on the beach, and relax to surf sounds.

  • Oct 02, 2017 by David M

    Pismo Beach is a chilled relaxed seaside town which probably hasn’t changed much in 40 yrs Seacrest is much the same. A 1970s functionally built hotel with no luxury touches but with dramatic views over the Pacific and fire pits to allow romantic after dark sitting with a glass of wine Everything we needed for an overnight stay and great views from an ocean facing room with balcony Breakfast was pretty basic with help yourself buffet and seating outside which is chilly in California mornings but fine if you walk to a firepit We ate at Ventura Grill - about a 6 min walk away - with a dramatic position over the rocks to watch the sunset and a great experience The town and pier best reached by car but worth it to see what life was like 40 yrs ago with little pressure No Malibu facelifts here but a simple little chilled Oceanside town where life stood still Great value for a night stopover but probably not worth a long stay

  • Oct 01, 2017 by MaryAGL01

    We have been staying at the Sea Crest for over 30 years. The new improvements are nice but there is room for them to do better. Please remind people staying on upper floors not to jump around on the floor, the floors are not sound proof. It also would be great if they would reserve the North spa for adults only. There are 2 others for families to enjoy with their children. Prior ownership did not allow children in the spas outside the pool area.

  • Sep 28, 2017 by SnowballNewcastle

    Hotel has a great location right on the coastline with ocean views. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Rooms were nice and modern. Grounds were pretty with a walkway down to the beach, pool was a good size with two separate hot tubs. Only downside was the pool/hot tubs have walls around them so when you are in them you can not see the ocean. A bit limited for places to eat nearby but would stop here again.

  • Sep 26, 2017 by rhb70

    The seacrest offered so much great outdoor areas and pools with bbqs and the perfect spot to watch the whales and sunset, rooms were great would highly recommend booking a sea view room, breakfast and the close distance to the shops was a bonus.

  • Sep 25, 2017 by April T

    The staff at the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel was very friendly and helpful! The room was clean and the view amazing! My husband and I were able to watch whales while we were on the balcony drinking coffee! Thank you!

  • Sep 25, 2017 by mike u

    Well this was another amazing trip to pismo and the seacreast hotel thanks to Danielle and her amazing staff that make it always the best stay you could imagine please contact her for your get away dates and ask for a ocean view suite. For food people If you like steak you must go to jockos in nipomo and if you like brick oven pizza check out 2 spots one is embers on grand and then there is ocean grill in avlia beach. for you bbq oyster lovers you must try in tognazzini's dock side morro bay wel hope this helps you in your central coast get away

  • Sep 25, 2017 by ericinla3131

    The room was perfect. Windows and a deck to the ocean. Instant service and free beer every day. The option to have the room cleaned or received a $10 credit paid me to conserve. That's nice. Front desk was great. Breakfast was plentiful and cookies in the afternoon were really good.

  • Sep 24, 2017 by Sharon F.

    Escaped to Pismo for the weekend and fell in love with the SeaCrest. The staff were awesome and offered us Room 410 for an upgrade saying it is "the best room on the property" and it did not disappoint! I've rarely entered a room and dropped luggage to immediately take pics of the room and the gorgeous views! We'll definitely be back! The bathroom could definitely use some upgrades soon and a posted How-To on the shower controls, but you won't spend much time in there anyway. *Recommend: Sunset view from the balcony Continental breakfast - go early on weekends Taking coffee to the beach for a walk or go for an early run! Fire pits at night. Can bring food and BBQ on their patio too. Walking to Ventana Restaurant for dinner Brunch in Shell Beach at Seaside Cafe *Pass on: Renting bikes on the weekend. Better to do on days with fewer cars. Enjoying the pool as a couple - would be great if kids are only allowed during certain hours. Tiny pool towels. They have nice robes in each room though!

  • Sep 23, 2017 by Tamara W.

    This place is great! Clean, staff is inviting and private beach access. We didn't have a reservation when we arrived and luckily they had a king room available. Rooms are clean, large, mini fridge and a Keurig. We had a lower level which has a patio area and can walk right out to the pool or the beach. The hotel sits high enough that you still get the ocean view even from a lower level. Th fun thing is that they have gas grills in their patio area that guests can bring their own food and grill on. Definitely will come back if ever in Pismo again.

  • Sep 22, 2017 by Cynthia M

    The Seacrest is very close to the pier. I would say like a 10 minute walk by the ocean. It is a great location and the hot tubs are very nice. I also enjoy their continental breakfast in the morning. They have bikes out front that you can use and explore Pismo. You can also walk to restaurants which is really nice. I recommend McClintock's when visiting. A great place for couples and families to enjoy dinner.

  • Sep 22, 2017 by lalGator

    Slice of heaven, from the view to the room, perfection! Had a deluxe ocean view room and stepped out onto the balcony & into paradise! Loved every minute, only wish we could have stayed longer. Comfortable beds & nice amenities.

  • Sep 20, 2017 by A TripAdvisor Member

    Everything was wonderful! We used the grill and took advantage of the fire pit. Maintance comes out and lights them for you. They also have cooking utincels you can borrow if you forgot them at home. What else could you want or need. It was fabulous!!!

  • Sep 20, 2017 by Joslynn W.

    One of my favorite places to stay at Pismo Beach, always great service, clean, and beautiful views. We go back and fourth between this one and sandcastle inn, the only difference is sandcastle inn is down on the beach, this is up and you have to take steps to get down... but that also makes the view better! The pool and hot tub are a really good touch and make for some really cool pictures! We will be back from Spokane WA

  • Sep 19, 2017 by Anthony Collins

    SeaCrest offers exclusive beach access, ocean view rooms, spa, pool, free breakfast, and fire lit areas with cookies for their guests. 5 star place to stay with the perfect location to access everything Pismo and the surrounding areas have to offer. Amazing place to see whales, dolphins, and seals.

  • Sep 19, 2017 by Danae S

    We've been coming here every year for over 30 years. We love the oceanfront rooms with balconies overlooking the ocean as well as stairs directly down to the beach. The hotel staff is so friendly and helpful! (from the office staff to the housekeeping people) Everything is so clean and well kept. The property is absolutely beautiful. We love the fire pits out in the courtyard area. The hotel staff is very accommodating. They really work with you to make your stay special. Christina and the other girls in the office were so patient and helpful as we got all our rooms figured out. We look forward to coming here all year long! It's the best!

  • Sep 18, 2017 by Bella ..

    I usually stay at a different hotel (rhymes with Molphin Day Report) but this time around we decided to try out The SeaCrest. 5 stars! I really enjoyed my stay here. Waking up and getting some breakfast to dine out by the BBQ grills and fire pits really gave us a great start to our day. I felt so relaxed my entire stay. There is a separate jacuzzi from the fenced off pool. Really nice, the spa jets are great! Only downside I found is that while I stayed in a first floor room, you can totally hear people above you walking around. Bummer. Check in and check out were quick and easy! Thanks for a wonderful weekend, SeaCrest! Will definitely be coming back!

  • Sep 18, 2017 by annia559

    Beach access, amazing views, and 3 jacuzzis are some of my favorite things this hotel has to offer! I have been going here for many years and recommend it to all my friends and family. Rooms are always clean and the staff is very friendly.

  • Sep 18, 2017 by Verenaa95

    Die Lage des Hotels ist einfach traumhaft, direkt am Strand mit tollem Ausblick. Das Hotel an sich ist modern. Das Zimmer war modern und sauber, das Personal freundlich. Das inbegriffene Frühstück war okay.

  • Sep 15, 2017 by Mari S

    Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night. The room was clean, big and nice. The room had a spacious balcony. The hotel staff was friendly. They had a free breakfast that was ok. The pool area was really nice and the hotel is on the beach. Would definitly stay here again.

  • Sep 14, 2017 by Kelly G

    This hotel is amazing, we stayed for 2 nights and I was so sad to leave and move on to our next part of our road trip. Our room was an ocean front and the views were amazing, we watched dolphins swim by and whales in the distance coming up for a breather. Complementary coffee 24hrs in reception, very spacious room, staff incredibly helpful and $10 per day complimentary credit to spend. All in all this hotel is amazing and I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying in pismo beech. I enjoyed it so much I was considering changing my next destination to stay longer.

  • Sep 13, 2017 by rdgrimsey

    Stayed four nights and enjoyed the view from the balcony, the patio area and the bench located on the bluff. We skipped breakfast at the hotel in favor of the Fatcat at Avila harbor. On the third night we heard loud voices and heavy banging next door to us at 02:00 in the morning. The night manager was on it and had the issue resloved by 05:00, the police had to be called. The staff were friendly and helpful. I found the no smoking policy somewhat extreme. Only two spots to smoke on the entire property with a $200 fine if caught smoking anywhere else on the property. I noticed people smoking on their balconies anyway. Even though I smoke the stay was enjoyable and I would definitely come again.

  • Sep 13, 2017 by Jessica P.

    Amazing two days spent at the SeaCrest! I got a standard room, nothing fancy, but who would want to stay indoors when there is a pool, hot tub, and beach right outside?! The hotel itself was comfortable, but did lack a couple of things. Check in was a long wait and I wouldn't have minded much if they had a bar. There is a small selection of beers and wine that they deliver to your room upon request. Overall it was a great stay and I will definitely be coming back.

  • Sep 12, 2017 by Alicia O.

    My family has been visiting Pismo for decades, and this is where we always stay. This time around, my husband and I came to Seacrest for a sort of late honeymoon after an unexpected injury forced us to relocate our wedding, which was originally going to be in Pismo, back in December 2016. If a bit of peace and tranquility that's only a short walk from tons of fun is what you're after, this is the hotel to stay at. It's perfectly perched on the cliffside with the nicest beach access stairs, which have been improved in the last couple years. They are lighted at night so you can take a stroll on the beach under the stars(but watch the tide!). Their location along the coast puts you a short beach walk from the pier and all the great restaurants, but far from the tourist/public beach-going crowds surrounding the pier. They offer coffee all day, cookies in the afternoon, and continental breakfast. The continental breakfast includes fruit, juice, yogurt, coffee, and cereal as well as hot oatmeal, boiled eggs, pastries, muffins, and toasted items(bagels, English muffins, breads). They also offer a voucher for a hot breakfast at Shell Cafe down the road. The first is complimentary, and any subsequent ones are ten dollars. The voucher is good for two people and the food is great, so it's a great deal if you are more interested in being served in the morning. They are pet friendly, so be sure to bring your furry friend if you go. I have never had a problem with the dogs or their owners. The landscaping is kept clean and waste-free. The building is older, though, so the one thing we aren't fans of is all the drains being slow. From the sinks to the showers, water pools and drains slowly. I think it's a mix between the building's age and the sheer amount of sand that gets washed down the pipes from all the guests. Service was great and accommodating. Cheyloe was really nice and Jedidiah is an amazing manager. We had ordered a small cake from Arroyo Grande Bakery to sort of capture what we missed out on for our wedding, and we made sure to give him a slice. Unfortunately, he was in a meeting when we dropped it off, so we hope he got it! If you're in Pismo and looking for a place to stay, you'll find no better place than SeaCrest. Parking is a little tight. There are lots of spaces, but the rows are a bit narrow. Full-size trucks can fit, though. It compounds the problem a bit, but if you're in a normal vehicle, it should be just fine.

  • Sep 12, 2017 by manorom

    Located about half a mile outside the centre of town on a headland directly over a delightful sandy beach in a bay frequented by surfers and sunbathers. Motel style accommodation just a little dated but very clean and comfy. Staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast (buffet) is adequate, reasonable choice and taken outside on the attractive patio with terrific views of the ocean. Ample free parking, good wi-fi, nice lawned area with chairs and benches, swimming pool. Loved sitting round the fire pits for a last drink of the day. All round - a good and enjoyable experience.

  • Sep 11, 2017 by Kent Groeneveld

    The front desk staff could not have been nicer. The rooms were large for a beachfront hotel. Pool and spa were great, as was the view from the hotel. Would definitely stay here again

  • Sep 11, 2017 by Mngsm

    From the phone call to make the reservation to checking out from the hotel and everything in between, we had the best customer service and experience. The property is the best the nicest in Pismo. We couldn't bare leaving he hotel so we brought food to BBQ on sight. Best experience ever.

  • Sep 11, 2017 by Lori P.

    This is an amazing view, from an ocean front room.  The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.  We were set to be on a cruise this week, but Hurricane Irma kept that from happening, so we searched for a room on the beach and it is so beautiful, the view, the hotel is good but the view is exceptional.

    I picked this hotel for the location and the photos looked stunning. And it was a great location and the grounds were beautiful. Access to the beach down the steps was awesome. The grass area that the surrounds the pools was really nice. They had fire pits and lots of seating to enjoy the view. Grass area was great if you had kids with you, they could run around or play the bean bag toss the hotel had out. The continental breakfast was much more substantial than I thought...it was really good. The stay itself was ok. Our room was average. We paid for an ocean view room, but had one kind of tucked in the corner, so our view was partial. The TV had to be restarted and we couldn't figure out why the thermostat didn't control the AC, until we finally noticed a different unit tucked in the corner behind some chairs. Overall it was a nice stay. I would go back with my kids.

    Great location, beautiful grounds but nothing special... Upon arrival the lobby doors were broken which wasn't a big deal. I was given a ADA room on the second floor with a ocean view (partial view). Room was nice, very open and very clean however, my AC didn't work....I tried to call the front desk and reached an answering machine and left a message. After trying to get some sleep, but couldn't because my room was too warm I decided to try again and managed to reach someone, a maintenance person was sent to trouble shoot the AC which led nowhere and I ended up having to leave the patio door open overnight which didn't help much because of all the crickets which washed out the sound of the ocean. After getting 3-4 hours of sleep before my training, I informed the front desk of the issues prior to check-out and was offered complimentary soda or Gatorade, but I prefer coffee in the mornings so I kindly denied their offer. Cons: Broken Hot Tub Weird smell in Lobby and Hallway. Broken AC Crickets Pros: Well kept grounds Clean Friendly Staff

    My wife and I stayed at the Seacrest Oceanview Hotel for three nights over Labor Day weekend. This hotel is up on the cliffs north of Pismo Beach. It benefits from the panoramic views from on high, and stair access down to the sand even at the summer high tide mark. There is a one mile walk across the beach to Pismo Pier (closed while we were there) from the bottom of the stair. The hotel is made up of a crescent of rooms in a two-story structure that houses the reception, with a newer block of rooms at either end. Between the rooms in the crescent and the cliff edge are lawns, pool, spas, and barbecue/ seating area. We had a room in the crescent on the ground floor, access was from the rear directly out into the car park. The room had patio doors with a small seating area with two high back chairs and table, a low hedge separated this spot from the lawns. We upgraded the already expensive holiday rates to get an ocean view which we could still see over the pool. The room was functional with bathroom, bed area and desk, but it also had a small counter with microwave oven and mini fridge (not minibar). There was a little grubbiness concerning the carpet and arm chair but you are at the beach so we can understand that. The bathroom was sizable but for some reason we ended up with what appeared to be a disabled room so the shower may not have been typical of other rooms. Plantation shutters offered good privacy across the patio doors when required. A sizable flat screen TV was opposite the bed, and the internet service could support streaming with Netflix etc. although one rainy night it did grind to a halt, not sure it was a technical issue or that everyone was indoors using it. Room had the usual noisey hotel AC. The free breakfast was served in the center of the crescent next to reception and was the usual, coffee, juice, cereals, pastries, bagels, toaster, hot oatmeal etc. The coffee was good. The breakfast buffet/seating layout made sure there was plenty of room even at the busiest time. There is no restaurant in the hotel but they have some order in options we used and found successful. Staff were friendly and helpful and seemed to be on top of things about the complex, regarding keeping the place clean and all in order. So, you would think it would be a place we would return to? Alas, no. In my haste to book a hotel for our last-minute weekend I failed to notice that the Seacrest is a pet friendly hotel. This fact is not immediately clear when browsing this hotel. If you are a dog owner who takes their pets to hotels read no further as it will not apply. It was not until we checked in and signed some papers concerning pets that I discovered my mistake. We are not dog or pet haters but would prefer not to sleep in a bed that recently had a dog sleeping on it. I know dog owners who state this is what they do at home and probably do the same when staying at a pet friendly hotel. Also, the lawns in front of the crescent, though pristine and well kept, were a magnate for all the dog owners to come and let their pooch do its business. This parade frankly ruined our sitting out to enjoy the ocean view. Most owners picked up the solid waste afterward, but we saw many children rolling or playing barefoot on the lawns in front of the swimming pool. I enquired at the main desk if people taking their dogs to onto the lawns to do their business was acceptable to the management. I simply received an affirmation that it was a pet friendly hotel, so I took this as a yes. So, animal guests aside, this is a nice hotel with great location, but it’s not for us.

    The SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel has always been the best place in Pismo Beach for my family and I to stay at. We have been coming here ever since 1994 and always come back! We love the friendly staff along with the beautiful property. The easy beach access is a plus. The SeaCrest is a great place for families of all ages or if you are looking for a couples get away. Thank you SeaCrest for you excellent service over the years!

    Ottimo albergo che ci ha ospitati nella tappa intermedia fatta durante il tragitto da San Francisco a Los Angeles. Ampio parcheggio gratuito, a due passi dalla autostrada, visuale bellissima sull'oceano, prato curato e piscina aperta ai clienti, accesso sulla spiaggia dell'oceano, camere molto ampie e pulite, letti molto comodi, bagno spazioso e curato, personale gentile.

  • Sep 06, 2017 by Kimberly S.

    Checked in for 2 nights and had an issue with our room.  The staff could not have been more helpful.  They moved us to a better room and comped our first night's stay.  They were so helpful and their customer service was exceptional and refreshing. Will definitely be staying here again soon.

  • Sep 05, 2017 by Amber Witherow

    We love love LOVE staying at the Seacrest!! This place just keeps getting nicer and nicer over the years. Heated pool, 2 adult spas and one kiddie spa, 4 gas grills and plenty of outdoor seating at multiple patios (and the weather is pretty much ALWAYS nice enough to sit outside!)... And let's not forget the staircase down to the beach straight from their own patio! The views are breathtaking all over the facility. And the staff will even go out of their way to help you out if you look like you're having trouble.

  • Sep 05, 2017 by Nicole A.

    The location, ocean views, beach access, outdoor patio/lounge areas, & personal patios make up for the crappy mattress, the fact we could hear every step our upstairs neighbors took in the middle of the night, and the not so awesome breakfast that was offered. There was an ice cream hour on Friday, which was a nice treat the day we checked in. They also have several grills that can be used by guests to grill whatever they would like. We simply took in our surroundings with a bottle of wine and the many available seating areas with ocean views. The direct access to the beach was also pretty awesome, just a stair case down to the sand... The room offers a microwave and fridge which is always good to have if you plan to heat food or cool off beverages. They also provide two free water bottles. The rooms could use a bit of in upgrade with linens, interior decor, there were missing bathroom hooks, and why is the bathroom light on the outside? There is also a $10 fee for any incidentals that they charge upon check in.

  • Sep 04, 2017 by Helen S.

    We stayed here for one night. I really enjoyed their amenities such as the BBQ pits, fire pit, continental breakfast and the cookies they made during the day. However, I think their customer services sucks!!! Every experience we had with the front desk was just bland. When we asked for things they acted like they hated their job and everyone was bugging them. This is the only reason they don't get a 5 for me. Other than. That the location is perfect and totally worth it. We had a balcony room and enjoyed the chairs and space to sit out.

    SeaCrest is our family favorite. This year, we considered Airb&bs and vacation rentals for price comparison and SeaCrest won. SeaCrest has everything you need for a perfect, worry-free vacation. Sand, surf, swimming pool, 24/7 coffee/tea, plush pillows and beds, fire pits (the best for s'mores and evening storytelling). No cleaning fee and no security deposit that most likely will not be returned (should we have gone to VR or ABB). The greatest dilemma we faced was having to leave the beach/pool to get the freshly baked delicious cookies. The staff are very accommodating allowing us to check in early and check out late. We could have had adjacent rooms but my daughter's arrival was delayed which turned out to be a blessing as she got a room closer to the jacuzzi. My grandchildren made several friends as there were a lot of families with children there Everyone felt so safe that my daughter and her husband went to the jacuzzi and I found my 2 grandchildren watching TV by themselves. I do not agree with that so I lingered around as any grandma would. The place is kept very clean. Being pet friendly, I did not see any dog droppings at any time. Believe me, I was watching closely as we had a 1 year old who enjoyed crawling in the perfectly manicured lawns. The staff was very helpful when we needed the BBQ or fire pits started. The pool area was kept clean and towels replenished quickly. The stairs leading to the beach was evidently reinforced. Even non-guest were welcome to use this and the shower to wash the sand off. SeaCrest does not turn anybody/anything away. We saw (and my grandchildren petted) 3 goats. Apparently the owner goes surfing there. This being Labor Day weekend, the BBQ area was very busy but the area was cleaned and replenished as soon as it was used. The free breakfast though simple was very filling, complete with healthy choices of protein-rich boiled eggs, yogurt and plenty of fresh fruit. The kids of course loved the pasties and hot coco. I stayed away from them or the bagels with generous cream cheese to make room for those cookies. The location is great too. Many nearby shops like Big 5 and Vons where we got the birthday cake for the 9 year old celebrant. Being the adventurous type, I wanted to go down to the beach at 3AM low tide but a helpful and knowledgeable staff warned me of the dangers saving a misfortune from happening. My granddaughter agrees that this is where she wants to celebrate her 10th.

  • Sep 03, 2017 by venuatt

    Everything is awesome. Would love to comeback. Had a pleasant stay at the hotel. Got a nice room. The staff and their response is pretty good. It has a decent beach access which has a terrific view. Overall it's awesome

  • Sep 03, 2017 by ucfnurse35

    Found this place online bc it had good reviews for families and we have a toddler. Also a friend said it's the best place in his opinion to stay in pismo beach. The grounds are big, so much grassy areas to play, walk dogs (pet friendly). You never seem crowded or cramped at all. The pool isn't huge but again it does not feel cramped at all. Quick access to beach below, 3 hot tubs as well which a lot of the time no one was in them which is very rare and we were here Labor Day weekend. Hey have free coffee and water in lobby all day, cookies everyday in lobby at 3 pm. Only downside is there is no restaurant or bar on premises but some of the local restaurants will deliver to the hotel. We tried but they didn't have a driver at the time. We ate at cracked crab, papi's grill (amazing tacos!), and huckleberry cafe while in town and would recommend all. I would definitely stay here again. If you have kids, a first floor room with pool view seems to have the best access patios!

  • Aug 31, 2017 by Haley W.

    I am checking out at 6am tomorrow morning as I write this from my room at 12:05am. The room next to mine must be full of college kids yelling and partying, like it's a Friday night, on a Wednesday. I have called down to guest services twice this evening and told the gentleman who is working the desk this evening about my frustration. Twice. He told me a man has already been next door, but still no change in volume. Pissed I have to keep the A/C and tv on all night to tune out the noise. Take note management, this put a bad taste in my mouth. Spent too much money to have to deal with this.

  • Aug 30, 2017 by Rola T.

    Well, Seacrest emailed me to ask about my stay. I responded, and they gave me an auto-generated response that they'd reply within 2-3 days. Since that never happened, I am just going to post my experience on Yelp, so future patrons can be aware. We paid $250 for one night (Tue night) for a room with a "private" patio.  I am currently suffering from a disability that renders me unable to handle anything more strenuous than a slow shuffle.  We had booked, in advance, an ADA compliant room. While I waited in the car, my husband checked in and returned with a pair of keys to a 4th room floor.  Since there was elevator and ramp access, I didn't think much of it.  You can imagine our surprise when we opened the door and found other occupants!  Mistakes happen, but this is not a cheap place to stay, and this is not rocket science. They were apologetic and reissued us a room.  However, the room they gave us, was RIGHT NEXT to the exit door.  There was no sound insulation in our room.  The exit door was latched in a way so that even if clients tried to shut it softy, it would slam shut the last 10 degrees of rotation with a loud BANG. So, if you like your sleep to be interrupted every hour for 250/night, by all means, stay here. Furthermore, the "private" patio was NOT private.  It simply led out of the building.  Anyone from the street could walk in and sit right down on our patio -- that does NOT make it private.  There was no gate/fencing/foliage/demarkation of any kind to make it "private".  This is what the email confirmation said: "Room Type: ADA OceanFront Deluxe King This room offers one king size bed and a private patio with a breathtaking view over the Pacific Ocean and enchanting sunsets. This handicap accessible room offers a bathtub with handrails in shower and around toilet." Nope.  No private patio.  False/misleading claims.  Reviewers, you have been forewarned!

    As usual, I had a wonderful stay. I always refer to this as one of my "Happy Places". The view, the room and the simple sound of the surf pounding below make this one of the best places to stay on the West Coast.

  • Aug 28, 2017 by brenagain

    I was planning on camping but all the campgrounds in the surrounding areas were full. So, we stopped and got a room at the Sea Crest. Check in was interesting. I sent my friend in with my credit card and ID because I was dirty from camping. There was a line but I cut in front because my friend had already waited. I was quickly chastised by someone in line. In response, I asked if I should wait twice to make it fair. The front desk was no help. The room was clean. We did not get a direct view but the ground floor room had a view if you sat at the end of the balcony area. We could also walk to the pool and direct view from our patio. Good location. Breakfast was fairly good and included in the price. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were clean. I would come back.

  • Aug 27, 2017 by Laura A.

    We stayed here because it's dog friendly. The problem is that the dog friendly rooms suck. They are right across from the pool so there's a lot of activity going on. They also have a terrible design flaw - the intake vent for the air conditioners for the room next to yours is right on your patio. So basically you can't use your patio because of the loud blowing going on right next to your lounge chair and you can't even keep your door open for the same reason. 350 a night for this?  Then the next day there was some sort of party gong on in the public seating area and the people were playing lawn games and screeching and screaming for 4 hours in the middle of the day so good luck getting any peace and quiet.  There's also no bellhop service so we were on our own pushing the luggage cart across the parking lot then through narrow hallways and into the elevator. Then returning it. Not something I would mind if they weren't charging so much money to stay here.  Won't be staying here again.

    I can't believe it's taken me so long to write this. We stayed here in March, We are locals just getting away for the weekend and with the help of Christina we found the room that we wanted with a beautiful Oceanview room. She explained the breakfast and all of the amenities, I would highly recommend calling Christina, she will find the best room for you! Thank you so much!

  • Aug 26, 2017 by Nivar Rivera

    Great place to stay for the weekend, beatiful views of the ocean. Relaxing with hotel amenities for being outdoors till wee hours of the night. Rooms are small but adequate for 2 people. Guest services and people were very nice.

  • Aug 26, 2017 by krnewportbeach

    Awesome place and service! We would definitely go back! We had an ocean view room, it was clean, very spacious, and and so comfortable! Christina at the front desk went out of her way to make us feel welcome and very special! She was amazing! The housekeeper, Esmeralda, greeted us with a warm and lovely smile, and catered to our every need. She was a doll!

  • Aug 25, 2017 by rum r

    Really enjoyed our stay and hated to leave. The grounds are so very inviting, with plenty of terraces and fire pits at night. I also really liked the beach access via the stairs. Maybe not a luxurious 5 star property but we felt it was perfect for a central coast beach stay.

  • Aug 23, 2017 by T L.

    Great access to the beach! The beds felt new and comfortably firm. Free wifi and breakfast. Good service overall. Rooms updated and well maintained. We didn't get a room with an ocean view so it was only max 4-star worthy. Also a great restaurant 2 blocks away (Ventana Grill) with beautiful views. I would stay here again.

  • Aug 23, 2017 by Iza1981Kuba

    The hotel is great. Front desk staff were extremely friendly. Awesome view. We really enjoyed it. Thanks for extra large blanket . Delicious breakfast. Everything was exactly I expected to be . My husband was kind of shocked when we got to know how much I paid but it was worth.

  • Aug 23, 2017 by FrankWulm...

    Goed hotel met een geweldig uitzicht. De WiFi werkt goed door het hele hotel heen. In het plaatsje Pismo Beach is zelf niet veel te beleven of te doen Misschien waren wij in de verkeerde tijd vh jaar....

  • Aug 23, 2017 by Sevtap W.

    We are having great family stay with our dog! Staff is incredibly helpful, rooms are top notch, the view is the die for. Love it! Definitely coming back many more times!!!

  • Aug 22, 2017 by Zigzeb

    L'hôtel est idéalement placée, directement sur la falaise, avec une vue splendide. Chambre spacieuse ( double queen bed) en ce qui nous concerne. Il vaut mieux prendre une chambre vue mer car les chambres qui n'ont pas vue mer donnent sur le parking et surtout le bruit de la highway 101 remplace le son des vagues. Grosse déception: le petit-déjeuner. Pas du tout à la hauteur de l'hôtel. Self service bondé, vaisselle jetable et choix très médiocre. Incompréhensible.

  • Aug 22, 2017 by cateringbysuzanne

    Hospitality, clean, BEAUTIFUL GROUNDS , with many options of seating and views, with cool fire pits , guest BBQ grills pet friendly, family friendly, But respectful guest, and a relaxed vibe. As on might expect. it gets a little crazy at the peak of breakfast time, but there is plenty of seating and a good variety of foods for a continental breakfast. coffee and tea in the lobby 24 hrs and oh yes ,fresh baked cookies every afternoon! sweeping ocean views!!!! Luv LUV luved it!!!!!! ,

  • Aug 22, 2017 by Glenda C.

    Bad experienced with this hotel. Our room and the view was good. But the room that they give it to us smelled like puke (vomit).  Called the front office and complained about it. I waited for the cleaner guy to come by(wasted my time waiting instead of enjoying my time with my family). First they sprayed the carpet with some chemicals to get rid of the smell then I told the guy to wait. After an hour the smell still they same. They came by again to scrub the carpet and sprayed. They ask me if I wanted to move to a different room, I told them to let just wait until they can fix it cuz the view and the room was perfect. Then the smell went away but i told them again just wait if the smell will not go back. We went out to eat got back for an 1 1/2 hour then the smell still the same. Called in again but we got bad experienced with customer service named Khan. He taught that my kids who puke in the room. He grab some dirty towels and drag into the beds and pour the chemicals in the carpet and insisting us that the smell went away.I told him your towel is dirty and touching the sheets. He apologize. Then I asked him if they can move us to another room he told us no more available. So I called for a another hotel with ocean view and cheaper than what Im paying dealing with bad customer service (Khan). He heard me talking and dealing with another hotel. And then he told me I think I might have a room for u guys. We are tired and ready to go to bed so we accepted the open room knowing will be the same what we have. Nope it was a disappointing one also. We came in smelled like burned popcorn. Ohhh and the view is the parking. My fault I didn't complain right away cuz we are so tired and don't want to deal with him anymore. Breakfast is ok nothing special except its sooo relaxing . Eating breakfast looking at the beach is the best. We check out and no receipt was printed because they have to call the third party. She didn't explain it to me very well but she just told me you will get your refund. Lie .I am just going to get a $50 refund for the inconvenience. If I only knew that I have to deal with this crap from this hotel I could just find another one and enjoy the relaxing vacation with my family. Really disappointed!!!!!Not going back and would not recommend this hotel to my friends and family. Lots of nice hotels that close by with a nice ocean view. Don't waste your money here.

  • Aug 21, 2017 by jpowers495

    The view from our deluxe room balcony was wonderful and hearing the waves at night was soothing. The beds were comfortable. However, the walls were thin so you can hear the TVs in the neighboring rooms and the slamming hallway doors. The bathrooms should be redesigned and upgraded with deeper tubs and grab bars. The elevators are iffy -- they work but aren't smooth. Rachel, at the front desk, and other personnel were very friendly and helpful. There is no restaurant or snack bar in the hotel.

  • Aug 21, 2017 by Jim B

    Stayed here for 2 nights in 2 bed family suite. The room was great, clean and had amazing views of the sea, a patio outside with 4 chairs so we could sit and chill while listening to the ocean. Staff really friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. But, we do have some negatives There is no restaurant or bar at present, I know there are plans to build/refurb one but it does mean you have to go out to eat lunch and dinner The interim arrangements for breakfast are adequate, there is plenty and they never runout, but is is a bit of a free for all. The 24hr tea and coffee is a great idea The swimming pool is quite small Also this is a dog friendly hotel so be warned there are lots of dogs, we like dogs but we didn't enjoy them being allowed to urinate and defecate on the grass outside our room and the pool. Lots of children play there and there are lawn games provided by the hotel so kids in bare feet run around on the grass. Just after we arrived we saw a young child about 4 years old who had walked onto the grass and stood in a fresh deposit, disgusting, parents came over armed with tissues and wipes. Had that been my child I would have gone nuts. The hotel should ban dogs from using the grass play area as a toilet and designate an area at the side as a dog toilet area Wanted to give the hotel 5 stars but with no restaurant and the dog issue can't go more than 3, which is a shame as we actually loved the hotel

  • Aug 21, 2017 by Mikeromanlucalisa

    Great staff, really good free breakfast get there before 8.30 to avoid the queue, easy access to the beach, nice pool, great sea view rooms. Just need a bar and restaurant now. Uber just $6 into town though.

  • Aug 20, 2017 by ernie802

    Wanted to get out of the Central Valley heat, away from the daily hustle. We had stayed here before I was happy with the room, and the view is perfect. So we booked again. Definitely will be back again and again

  • Aug 20, 2017 by Jodi F.

    This place was booked when we passed through Pismo beach!! However, We spent the day on the beach then walked up  the wooden steps provided by the Seacrest oceanfront inn. At the top, an outside shower, and a beautiful outside grass area with lovely pools, and spa. Every room has a balcony ocean view. So clean and peaceful, worth the $$

  • Aug 20, 2017 by Steve A

    My wife and I have been to SeaCrest several times over the years. It continues to be one of our favorite plays to stay for a summer vacation getaway. We love all the renovations that have been done recently and are looking forward to seeing the ones that are in the works next including their new onsite restaurant and a pool makeover. Everyone that works there is extremely friendly and professional and always attentive to make sure your stay is the best possible.

  • Aug 19, 2017 by Ismail Sebe

    Love the view. The staff was fast, curtious, helpful. The rooms were a bit outdated but clean. The spa was functioning and fun. One major issue was the A/C in the room was to loud. We either needed to try to sleep with the nose or sleep with the cold, we chose the latter. Some folks can sleep with the noise, we are not one of those. Other than that the place was awesome. But after the sleepless night couldn't get myself give 4 stars.

  • Aug 19, 2017 by Rachel A

    We loved this hotel! Everything from the time you arrived was friendly and good. The views and grounds are beautiful & the breakfast was just enough. Outdoor seating with ocean view during breakfast was so peaceful. We were able to walk down to the beach after breakfast and when we returned, we saw dolphin & a whale! The room was comfortable and well appointed. We will be back!

  • Aug 19, 2017 by Lmar562

    Love it, love it. My compliments to all staff specially Cristina at the front desk. All very polite and acknowledge every guest. The room that we stayed was great. All that is missing is a restaurant but the coffee and tea 24/7 works for me.

    Wir haben uns für pismo als zwischenstopp entschieden und sind hier gelandet Die lage ist toll Ein kurzer Holztreppen weg zum strand, tolle Pool Landschaft mit hot tubes und der hammer: drei festinstallierte Gas grills zum selbergrillen, wenn wir das gewusst hätten Ja, es sind Hunde erlaubt in dem Hotel, aber das ist überhaupt nicht aufgefallen Ein toller platz um den Sonnenuntergang zu sehen Zimmer sauber , der Preis leider etwas zu hoch für meinen Geschmack, aber mal kurzfristig was zu finden ist halt so eine Sache

  • Aug 17, 2017 by Helle J

    Super dejligt hotel tæt på Stillehavet. Vi havde ikke værelse med udsigt, men boede nede ved jorden og havde direkte udgang til græs og gang arealerne. Morgenmaden kan man enten spise på udendørs terrassen eller tage den med til sin bolig. Hotellet har ikke et spiserum. Morgenmad er tagselv i et rum nær receptionen. Det lyder måske underligt, men vi synes virkelig om ideen. Vi benyttede den direkte adgang til stranden og udsigten fra hotellets have over Stillehavet og kysten er fantastisk. Vi vil klart anbefale hotellet. Der er ca. 1.5 km til centurm at Pismo. Vi gik til centrum og spiste aftenmad. Pismo har også en rigtig godt outlet.

  • Aug 16, 2017 by dmoe932

    When booking this hotel, Cristina at the front desk made our booking so easy, she was right on the money in advising us and letting us know what was available. We haven't actually stayed here yet but are sooooo looking forward to it. It will be my mom's 89th birthday and Cristina helped us with a room with an ocean view and balcony. With this kind of help and great attitude, we are really looking forward to it.

  • Aug 15, 2017 by RonG215

    View was amazing, staff was very friendly, room was clean. Would highly recommend this stay on your visit to Central CA.... You can't beat the location and proximity to the beach. Will def. stay on our next visit

  • Aug 15, 2017 by Marlon J

    As soon as you get past the front doors and get the view of the ocean you'll understand exactly what i'm talking about. Not to mention the stairs that take you down to the beach! One of the friendliest staffs I've ever come across, rooms are perfectly made each day and the beds are so comfy it'll be hard to wake up for the continental breakfast. So much to do around the area if you feel like you don't want to relax by the beach the entire time. A couple of my favorites were the Monarch Butterfly Grove and the crazy ride through the sand dunes on a hummer! Will definitely be staying at this hotel again.

  • Aug 14, 2017 by jacobskro...

    Es ist ein hundefreundliches Hotel,das riecht man leider auch auf den Zimmern. Auf dem Balkon ist die Klimaanlage der Nachbarn angebracht,läuft diese kann man sein eigenes Wort kaum verstehen-mit Fenster auf zu schlafen - gar nicht dran zu denken. Die Lage und der Ausblick ist traumhaft, entschädigt leider für den Rest nicht (laute Hotelgäste Mensch wie Hund bis spät in den Abend, schlechtes Frühstück etc.).

  • Aug 14, 2017 by veichten

    The hotel was clean and kept up well by maintenance staff and room cleaning service, Rose was cleaning the rooms on our floor and went out of her way to help us. Perry at front desk was great regarding early check in, call in the am 7-8ish to be put on a list. I have used this hotel for 28 years. My adult children learned to swim in the pool as young children. We always stay here if it is not booked. Located near the pier and all eating establishments which are fantastic. The whales were out of the water this trip most I have seen.

  • Aug 14, 2017 by boblitvak

    First, your staff were very friendly. A few improvements would have earned five stars: A safe in the room. A grab bar in the shower. A warmer pool. I'm an active 77 year old and rented three rooms for a family get together. For what we spent, an ocean view would have been nice.

  • Aug 13, 2017 by 1Sailgirl

    Oceanfront room, perfect pool and grounds. Always relaxing and pleasant time on the central coast. Nice sized room could have accommodated a couple of queen beds rather than the well warm doubles. Other than the beds, everything was wonderful. The staff was friendly as were the other hotel guests as well. Great environment for couples and families. This hotel is child and pet friendly. We watched whales and dolphins seemingly play beneath us in the wide expanse of the gray blue ocean. Not much better than a weekend at the Sea Crest. We will visit again and again as we have for nearly twenty years. Thank you!

    Our family of 3 (self, spouse, & 20 yr old daughter) stayed 2 nights midweek in a deluxe 2 Queen oceanfront on the 4th floor. Perfect for viewing the pier and Avila Beach. Did hear a noisy neighbor on his phone at 2:30 am! Patio was protected and offers a great view. Lots of wildlife: whales, otters, pelicans, and more. Typical August weather, foggy mornings, breezy midday, and then those beautiful golden hours between 4 and sunset (8 pm). We enjoyed meeting people at the fire pit and the spas. Staff are wonderful, from groundskeepers to the front desk. Thanks to John at the front for his great smile & help. We'll be back!

    Great view, great room, great beach access, only drawback is no bar or restaurant. Drinks can be ordered and delivered to your room only. The staff is very friendly and courteous and provided us with a free bottle of wine for our anniversary.

  • Aug 13, 2017 by debilu315

    Loved staying here. Had the third floor with a balcony. Perfect view of the ocean. I definitely recommend. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very nice. Easy access to the beach. The weather was perfect.

    First of all. we usually stay at 4 star hotels and wouls rank this 3 stars overall. We stayed in a Deluxe 2 Queen Oceanfront and booked only a week ahead. We paid $340/night and really enjoyed the view and wildlife sightings from our room. We saw dolphins and brown pelicans every day and sea lions once. We loved the Jacuzzis and never felt overly crowded with only one or 2 small groups using it at the same time. The general mood is very relaxed and low key. Expect a busy breakfast room but it is very well stocked despite the morning crowd. Staff is friendly, grounds are beautiful and kept clean. location was perfect for us with a short walk down the beach to Pismo. Although we didn't use it, there is a free trolley station down the street with service to Avila Beach. The down sides were thin walls and no food service on site besides continental breakfast and afternoon cookies. We understand they are working on a new restaurant called "Willows" which will provide room service and light groceries which will make this a great one stop resort.

    My family with totally four persons stay at this hotel only for one night. But the hotel room is huge and clean. There is a pool area although the pool is kind of small but consider hotel right beside the beach, so not really a problem. There are free rentals bicycle available for use as well, too bad we don't have the time to enjoy it. There is only one draw back as the stand lamp inside the room has no light bulb in it. I call the lobby to fix it although they said will do but actually nothing happen.

  • Aug 10, 2017 by shockingblue7979

    The chance to have quality time with my DIL and granddaughter was too good to pass up and we were lucky to book our stay here. We found the accommodations to be quite comfortable and private. You can't beat the location right on a beautiful beach and the view from the cliffs above is breathtaking. We enjoyed our continental breakfasts and unexpectedly broad offerings, too.

  • Aug 10, 2017 by Richard S

    Bij aankomst imponeert dit hotel nog niet echt. Ook de gangen en het tapijt in het hotel doen best oubollig aan maar eenmaal binnen is het uitzicht overweldigend. Het geluid, de geur en het uitzicht over de oceaan is adembenemend. Let op, boek hier voor iets meer een signature guest-room want dan heb je de volle 100% van dit uitzicht. Verder zijnet zwembad en het strand onderaan de klif geweldig. Echt top! En schoon!!

    I have been to Seacrest many times over 27 years. I have most often rented deluxe spa rooms and the like. My first rental was my honeymoon. We rented the family suite. It was listed having a gaming system...wasn't there. Advertised with Direct TV in the rooms, kids room was stuck with one Disney Channel, suffice to say it wasn't as advertised. If I am going to rent a room that ultimately cost over $450 for one night, I at the very least expect what is listed in the offering. There was confusion in billing. Apparently the payment made on the Internet was allegedly not processed and they were going to use the card I left to cover incidentals for the rent. If I didn't go and physically check out, the wrong card would have been charged. I will not rent here again, they have lost a repeat customer.

  • Aug 10, 2017 by Angela B.

    The view is epic! The pool closes too early. The breakfast was always stocked and good quality. The pet policy was inexpensive and much appreciated. The staff always pleasant but our room was next door to the laundry room and we heard the music and banging of workers and saw the staff all day every day of our three night, four day stay. The noise and smell of the laundry facility unappetizing. Room 136 needs some maintenance, screen door is ripped, loud and failing off track. Air conditioner is extremely loud and the next door's AC makes sitting in the private deck impossible but we enjoyed our private entrance, perfect for letting the dogs out but the dog relief station was not stocked and attempts to get it stocked went ignored. The outdoor patios and fire pits/grills are a real nice touch and the hot tub was perfect thanks to the staffs meticulous attention.

  • Aug 09, 2017 by Rico Santiago

    Best Place to stay @ Pismo Beach. Great staff and service. Moderately priced. Will come back again! Wait im still here.. Kept on extending my stay!

  • Aug 09, 2017 by Heinz G

    We've enjoyed 2 wonderful days in this hotel. Excellent room with impressive ocean view. Room service 'Thurst Aid' includes very good wines for reasonable price! Friendly personnel! Our receptionist (Christina) gave us very helpful recommendations. The hotel gives a very friendly and relaxed impression! Very good! August, 2017. A. and H. from Switzerland

  • Aug 07, 2017 by Meiying H

    Spent $450 a night on a 2-star level accommodation...room is very dated, its basically a Best Western Inn kind of room and bathroom, arrived with some hair on the shower and sand on the toilet. Got me a bit traumatized but didn't bother to voice to the front desk as we were so tired from long drive. Bfast included yes but nothing hot served...all paper plates. Lawn is maintained immaculate and direct beach access. Didnt use the pool as it was full of kids. A bit far to go into town. Next time would stay at Avila area where the hotels are nicer and prolly $100 less, such as Avila Village Inn. On the morning of check-out, we called front desk if we could extend it maybe 15~30 min late check out (11am). The lady Jaime at front desk picked up the phone with impatient tone and rushed me into hanging up. When she heard my saying "late check out, 10~15 min", she immediately say "NO, we are fully booked", CLICK! Well...that's nice customer service considering we paid Ritz Carlton kind of price to stay at a very basic hotel. Will not come back again. But its ideal for family travel I'd say.

  • Aug 07, 2017 by Melissa J.

    Visited the Seacrest for our 30th wedding anniversary! Wasn't sure what to expect and was very pleased! We were greeted by Cheylee so friendly and professional!! Offered us a bottle of wine for our anniversary and delivered it or our room herself! She offered us a ground floor ocean view with our own patio or 3rd floor ocean view.  We chose ground floor, just a little more convenient to the pool and taking all of our stuff down to the beach without having to walk a lot of hallways and elevator. This is a straight shot down the hall and out the door.  We are staying 2 nights! So relaxing  I can sit and listen to the ocean forever!

  • Aug 06, 2017 by Ramandeep D

    Very good location with an excellent beach and ocean views. Beach access route has wonderful views of the ocean. Beach is both long and wide, and less crowded on this side of the city i.e. close to the hotel. Plenty of restaurants within reach of a 5 minutes drive. We dined at Ventana Grill and Cracked Crab which were both good. Got a bit of a Hawaii feeling without the overprice. Free breakfast was good, not the best we've had at similar hotels, but good. The pool and two spas were good. Hotel staff was very helpful and gave me a cup of milk for my son in the night when I inquired about grocery stores nearby, even when their food service was closed. Hotel room was nice and clean but looked a bit dated, could use some refreshing. TV could use a channel guide, else hard to find the right channel. Overall, enjoyed the stay and definitely coming back here.

  • Aug 06, 2017 by Victoria R.

    A first for my fiancé and I staying here. We loved it. The price was reasonable and the view over looking the beach was amazing and beach access was great. The only thing we suggest is that maybe one of the three jacuzzi's be designated for adults only.

  • Aug 05, 2017 by Oyvind Gullikstad

    Get a room with a view, it is worth it. It was just stunning. Got to see both whales and seals from the balcony. Rooms where big, and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was on the low end of the scale, but you get some serial and waffels to get you trough to lunch. Staff was very helpful as well.

  • Aug 05, 2017 by Todd B

    We had a so-called deluxe ocean front room in the north building, at more than $500 a night after tax. The walls were terribly thin, and we had to listen to the tv next door throughout the day and night. It sounded like a herd of elephants lived upstairs. We could hear complete conversations from the bathroom (hate to think what they could hear). Bathroom fixtures were old and wobbly. In room AC was very loud. Carpet in the hallways was dirty and dated. The ice machine around the corner was deafening. On the positive side, the view is great and staff was conscientious and friendly. But nothing can fix this architectural and structural crime of a building.

  • Aug 05, 2017 by kmlawler

    I have been coming to SeaCrest for 29 years now. SeaCrest is my summer home. It is the best hotel at the coast. The staff is friendly and supportive, kind of like an extended family. My stay here is the highlight of my summer each and every year. Danielle and Christina are two examples of wonderful SeaCrest employees who are dedicated to maintaining the wonderful experience I have described for myself and all their guest. I am already looking forward to next summers stay. (30th year, yaaa) Thanks! Wes

  • Aug 03, 2017 by tgmckenzie1965

    Accommodations and Customer Service is Definately a 10+. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it's not smoker friendly at all. Certainly I understand No Smoking Rooms and I even understand No Smoking On patio/Balcony. If I were a non smoker I wouldn't want smoke drifting in my window either. BUT... I don't understand designating only a hard bench for smokers and most the time, out of courtesy I wasn't even able to sit there bcuz there were other people sitting there. There's 3 seperate Jacuzzi's. I used none of them bcuz all 3 r non smoking. There is that 3rd bbq patio, closest to the ocean with a bbq and semi comfortable chairs that, in my mind could be designated for smokers. Had I not talked to several others smokers who said they wouldn't return to SeaCrest for those reasons, I probably wouldn't have even said anything. Other than that....it was a great experience for myself, my Daughter and my Grandaughter. Planning another trip to Pismo soon and would love to stay at Sea Crest if we smokers were not treated like 3rd world citizens.

    Danielle the manager ? Is a dream . Friendly , smart and got us a perfect room with a baby pool sized jacuzzi right in the room :)) amazing views , little fire pits , free beer credit every day , I had a reading nook with pillows in my room . I left dolphin bay after a bad experience ughhhh and drove around until we found this place . Got 3 nights stay for almost the price of 1 nights stay at overpriced noisy Dolphin Bay . Reasonable prices and great stay . I totally recommend :))

    Worst customer service I have ever encountered in my 50 years of travel. This hotel double charged my daughter and her husband at checkin.  They called twice prior to arrival to make sure they could pay cash at checkin and were told yes. At checkin they took the cash and charged their card same amount. Because my daughter is tied to my account ALL overdraft amounts came off my account basically rendering both me and my daughter completely penniless. We tried our entire five day stay to get them to fix it and we were told it's our banks fault.  Our bank repeatedly told us money still held by hotel.  Hotel finally fixed on our departure five days later. My sister frequently goes to this hotel....my first and most likely last time .  We have family reunion next year..I will stay elsewhere.  General manager became ghost. I had to call my attorney and pay for his services to get fixed.  Bad bad choice in hotels and extremely poor customer service. Bad end to what should have been a great time.

  • Jul 25, 2017 by Phillip Macias

    One of my favorite places to stat. Wonderful staff on arrival and departure. Every room being Ocean front is wonderful. A little pricey during summer but 100% worth it.

  • Jul 25, 2017 by Jake M.

    The family and I stayed here for two days. Very accommodating friendly staff across the board. From management to cleaning staff. Rooms are clean. Easy access to the beach. Ice cream Fridays for an hour and delicious cookies and coffee are always in the lobby. My little boy misplaced one of his plush toys while we were out; one of his favorites. My wife asked one of the ladies cleaning a neighboring room if she cleaned our room and happened to come across a plush toy. The cleaning lady said she did not and recommended that we check behind the dresser, microwave stand, and bedsides. I checked behind the stand in between the beds. There it was! A few minutes later the same cleaning lady came back to check if we've found our son's toy. We were pleased to tell her we did and thanked her for her thoughtfulness. We enjoyed our stay here!

  • Jul 23, 2017 by familiebamert

    The Hotel is beautifully located on the cliff with stairs leading down to the beach. Great Vista down towards the Pismo pier. The medium sized pool is ideal for families. There are three hot tubs open until 11pm. Gas fires provide warmth in the evening. On the downside the hotel doesn't have any restaurant on site, but a number of good restaurants are nearby.

  • Jul 23, 2017 by matysu

    I booked a 2 night stay with SeaCrest in July. They had an Ocean view room upstairs with a private balcony on their website. Perfect, exactly what I wanted. When I arrived it was downstairs with a view of the fence and garbage can. When I asked the front desk she informed me they don't book by room number or floor, you get what you get. I wouldn't have reserved a room had I known that. If you have kids or pets or are handicapped you might need/want ground level. I just wanted to relax with a good book, enjoy the view in peace and quite. I was in front of the walkway and people, who were very friendly wanted to engage in conversation which was fine but you don't get that upstairs. The rooms are small. They were clean but the ambiance was simular to a Holiday Inn. Stale popcorn, and although they were 3 of us only 2 glasses, coffee for two etc. I wouldn't have minded but I payed $850 for 2 nights and it wasn't close to an $850 room. Staff was great but I won't be back.

    Very nice family friendly beach getaway. Great location with beach access via a staircase. Well maintained and very clean. Pool and 3 Jacuzzis. Rental bikes and games for kids. Not a good place for a quiet getaway in the summer as there tends to be a lot of children of all ages.

  • Jul 21, 2017 by Kimberlyacarey

    Wish we could afford to stay more then one day. Loved the backyard patio!! Beds are super comfy. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was okay but would have loved to see eggs, sausage, bacon etc. We will definitely be back!!

  • Jul 21, 2017 by Lacey r

    .....This must be the space between dreaming and reality because at this resort, fire greets the ocean, smiles dance in couples eyes, kids applaud the birds of sea air, a zen like stair case connects a go-long (frisbee term) beach to a close encounter hot tube....you can literally walk off the grounds of this well designed arena for living the good life, and walk downtown to Pismo with in minutes. Pismo: a place to wine, dine, shop, hop, play, ride and surf.... is icing on this eclair! ps.... it gets sunny after 11 AM in July, and in June there is no fog.....

  • Jul 21, 2017 by linjo720

    We've stayed at this hotel a few times and always love it. The beach access is great. The continental breakfast is as good as any other hotel I've stayed st. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. Pismo in July is a welcome relief from the 90 and 100 degree temps at home.

  • Jul 20, 2017 by evergreensummer

    we have stayed at the SeaCrest many times over the last 25 years. It's a nice hotel, perfect location for beach lovers, and offers well appointed modern rooms. Excellent ambiance with cozy seating areas, fire pits, family gathering areas, and a great pool. They have their own private access to the beach. The lack of a nearby restaurant is noticeable for us since the one that use to be there has closed. But there is a remodel going on in the empty building so perhaps that will be an added feature again soon.

  • Jul 20, 2017 by labunch

    Wonderful location overlooking the ocean. Just a staircase down to the sand. The rooms are clean, loved having a fridge and microwave. My only recommendation is to have higher chairs on the balcony. When you sit in the ones they have, your eyes meet the railing and you can't see the beautiful ocean or pool area. Will definitely stay again!!

  • Jul 20, 2017 by Darlene S.

    The hotel is overall good, but the floorboards are squeaky and loud. This is my second stay here. My last stay was on the second floor. This time I requested the floor level to take advantage to the nice patios they have facing the pools and beach. Unfortunately, however, if you stay on the first floor of the main building, you will not sleep! The ceiling/ floor of the second level is horribly squeaky. You will hear every single movement above... when they walk, when they sit on the bed, and even when they have sexual intimacy in the bed above you. Again... you will not sleep! Management show really look into getting this fixed. Aside from this, it is a nice hotel, love the garden area, the firepits, pool and Jacuzzis. The continental breakfast is merely ok, but could be better. Overall, not sure I will be back, not unless the fix the floorboards. For this, I give them 4 stars instead of 5.

  • Jul 19, 2017 by Christine C

    Janie and Christina at the front desk did a great job and saved my vacation and fixed my booking.com reservation that was totally messed up. Thanks again for going the extra mile. They made sure that my family had rooms by each other and that we had a great time. The ocean front was amazing

  • Jul 19, 2017 by Casey K.

    What an awesome place to stay! Beautiful ocean views, clean and comfortable rooms, free internet. Highly recommend SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel. Further more - Outstanding customer service. Thank you Perry P. From booking over the phone to checking in you made it smooth process.

  • Jul 16, 2017 by Chris K.

    Traveled here with my family from NorCal. Friendly yet inconsistent service. I was told I could go look for a luggage cart when I asked for one. That said, a Seacrester came up to our room to address our WiFi problem and he made it work again in a timely manner. Upper or lower power outlets did not work in our room. Beautiful view from our room, which was reasonably updated. Pretty oceanfront grounds and easy stair access to the beach.

  • Jul 15, 2017 by Kenny W

    I don't even know where to begin with my review. From the courteous and well mannered staff who waited for our late arrival at night, to the amazing views and experience in your hotel...we miss you already! Nothing was too much of a hassle and that makes a tired weary traveller feel so relieved and gives me a brand name that I can trust. Thankyou for being so professional and offering such a friendly environment for a small price compared to the big wig locations.

    I'm looking forward to writing about this place in our travel blog shortly.
    We will return!!

  • Jul 15, 2017 by peter g

    Here at the mo. Hotel is nice , loads of parking , access to beach is good . The hotel has no bar or restaurant which is odd . They will deliver beers to your room however . Restaurants within walking distance . Pismo beach is nice . Pismo itself is ok , not much there .

  • Jul 15, 2017 by BroncoBecky

    Gorgeous views. Great room with both refrigerator and microwave. We only stayed one night and wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely will be doing a repeat visit. A must thing to do is sit by the fire pit at night. Beautiful sunset and beautiful evening.

  • Jul 15, 2017 by Andrea M

    I have been staying at this hotel thru the years, never disappoints. This trip I was with a girlfriend and our kids, I will start with staff...AMAZING, I had some issues with my room charges and Perry is a ROCKSTAR!! he was patient and determined to get to the bottom, and he did...Danielle and Christina also assisted in this issue and always had a smiling face, the day staff is phenomenal ( I know I am missing another gal who was also fantastic) We where close to downtown, you can walk the beach, rent a bike at the hotel, or minutes of a drive. Freeway access is easy, and the Avilla farm is also minutes away. We loved the beach access from the hotel, Breakfast daily, smores at the fire pits at night and Jacuzzi to end the day. I felt safe with the kids on the property and there wasn't anything the staff wasn't willing to jump in and help with. This hotel has everything you need to complete your vacay, I would not come to Pismo and stay anywhere else but here...

  • Jul 14, 2017 by U5438GCdavidm

    Nice rooms. Excellent location on the beach. Wonderful restaurants near by. Live music and wine tasting on the rooftop patio midweek was fun. Watching the humpback whales from our balcony was an added bonus! Dave M.

  • Jul 13, 2017 by c l.

    This was our second visit to this hotel. The first was amazing, that's why we returned. This time though, the hot tub jets didn't work. The coffee and water in the lobby was almost always empty. When we asked the guy at reception, he was annoyed that he had to get off a personal phone call to fill it up. We were excited to give our dog the bone toy and it wasn't in our room. Details were there and the place was not as well kept. Next time we are in the area we will probably check out one of the other accommodations.

  • Jul 12, 2017 by dt51654

    The front desk was very friendly and helpful. The first night we were assigned room 229. The room had a full on ocean view right above a sitting area. This is not the room for anyone who wants privacy. People are socializing which is not a bad thing but when you are paying full high season rates and you don't want all that noise this may not be the room for you. The most bothersome with that room was the patio lights obstructed the view. We went to the front desk and asked if we could be moved, they put us in the South Tower 4th floor room 438. This room was very nice, great view looking to the north. The hotel staff treated us well.

  • Jul 12, 2017 by dianacoffman2131

    This was our second stay at Seacrest...great hotel resort! Definitely will be coming back. We brought friends this time and they loved everything about it. So many wonderful views and places to relax and enjoy beautiful Pacific Ocean.

  • Jul 12, 2017 by o_Orjan

    Stayed one night in double queen room. The hotel had great outdoor spaces and views, access to beach via stairs, easy parking, but the room we were given was dated and dark. The window (offering a glimpse of the ocean) was extremely dirty. Looked like someone had sprayed mud on it from the outside. AC was loud and directed directly towards one of the beds. Room felt very dated, and did not match the relatively high price. Would not recommend staying here unless you know you'll be getting an oceanfront room.

  • Jul 12, 2017 by Korrina R.

    Stayed here for moms birthday. Room had a nice view of the ocean. The breakfast is a little half ass. They don't cut the fruit, or have a selection it's very just plain. Bagel and cream cheese with a banana type of thing. The lady's are natzis too, they lock you out right at 10am. Even if your taking things to your table they will lock you out they don't care and are very rude. I asked for some coffee and they rolled their eyes. Came off very lazy. They turn off the toasters on you while your toasting. The cool thing is it is very dog friendly so if you have a behaved pet then it's great. It's right next to the ocean so you can walk down to the sand. The cons are there is no place to eat after 9pm. The whole town closes at 9pm.

  • Jul 11, 2017 by Paul P

    My family and I had a great two-night stay at this hotel. The room was clean and spacious. The wifi worked great. We enjoyed the small balcony with a view to the beach. We also took advantage of the Jacuzzi which was great. The only con would be that for the complimentary breakfast, there seemed to not have any sorts of meats (bacon, sausage, etc) available. It kind of left my family a bit hungry. Besides that, it was overall a great stay at a very nice hotel, and right by the beach. Would come back again.

  • Jul 11, 2017 by CareyNorthampton

    The hotel is an easy stroll along the beach or by road to Pismo. Our room had an ocean view, but the mist rolled in both afternoons we were there. Access to communal barbecues and fire pits, however the roof top terrace was taken up by a private party the first night as we had the misfortune to book for graduation weekend, which we had been unaware of. Excellent breakfast and free coffee from Reception

  • Jul 10, 2017 by Benjamin...

    Sehr zentral am Highway gelegen, jedoch weit genug entfernt um nichts davon zu hören. Schöne Aussicht vom Pool und den Zimmern auf das Meer. Im Garten stehen drei hochwertige Gasgrill um mitgebrachtes Fleisch zu grillen. Check In verlief sehr kühl und die Mitarbeiter hatten nicht viel Spaß an der Arbeit. Das Meeresrauschen entschädigt dafür allemal.

  • Jul 10, 2017 by mid65

    My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Seacrest. I would have to say my favorite part was falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. We had an ocean view room with a balcony with 2 chairs. The room itself was nothing special, but it was very clean and the bed and pillows were wonderful! This hotel sits right on a cliff overlooking the ocean. There are steps that take you right to the beach. The view from anywhere on the back of the property was breathtaking. You can see the Pismo beach pier. The property has 3 hot tubs but only 2 were working. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and in the beach loungers right next to the hot tubs. There were clean towels in a bin next to the hot tubs and the pool. There were children playing in the pool but it wasn't like the place was overrun with kids. I saw some families BBQing right next to the pool and hot tubs. There were 3-4 fire pits with nice cushioned seats set around it, including fire pits by the pool and on the roof top terrace. Also there was a big patch of grass where kids could play. Overall it was a very beautiful hotel. The only thing that would make this place better would be an on-site restaurant.

    stayed 2 nights .... Arrived on Weds and had winetasting up on a nice sunny patio on 4th floor...great view, good wine and entertainment. Adequate breakfast , Oatmeal and other cereals, bagels, hard boiled eggs fresh fruit and reasonably good coffee..sat outside with fireplace close by... went for long walk on great beach afterwards then went on for an afternoon of wine tasting... walked to dinner so that we could continue with wine.. coffee tea and hot chocolate available all day

  • Jul 10, 2017 by Nancy H

    Loved our stay. It started with friendlly, helpful staff. Loved the ocean views from our room and easy access to the beach. It was only a short walk along the beach to downtown Pismo where we spent a delightful evening at the Oyster Loft.

  • Jul 09, 2017 by Meg B.

    Wonderful ocean front hotel! Our room was very clean and we wanted to change rooms to a ocean view and Rachel at the front desk was very very accommodating :) We will be back.

  • Jul 08, 2017 by Impy9331

    Stayed over one night after traveling down the Pacific Coast Highway. Staff very accommodating. Room was clean although the hallway had a odor and was a bit cramped. The view from the room was fantastic overlooking the cliffs to the beach and ocean. The pool area appeared nice and the grounds were well maintained. A very steep stairway took you down to an absolutely beautiful beach with unbelievable views of cliffs and rock formations. This alone made the location worthwhile. Only one negative comment and that was the noise coming from the room directly above us at 6:00am. Not a big deal since it allowed us to go for an early walk on a fantastic beach.

    I just had a wonderful stay at the SeaCrest. The staff was amazing! Lamont was so kind and helpful. He really made our stay more enjoyable. It gets a bit chilly outside at night and he saw that we were cold and just showed up with blankets, lit the fire pit for us and even set up the TV in room so the kids could play Xbox after a long day at pool. Really amazing! Beautiful property Beautiful weather Great getaway. We will be back!

    Just a great time, front desk staff was on top of everything. Housekeeping would miss little details, but promptly fixed them. For example, we ran out of Kleenex, but they were quick to get a box to us. We did their 4th party, just pure gun and great food.

    One night stay in a family suite. My daughters were fine in the second room even though they are both over 16. Friendly staff, lovely rooms, great views and nice pool area with free parking. There are steps down to the beach and the breakfast was totally fine. Only negative is there is no bar or restaurant on site although they can deliver limited drinks to your room. Would definitely stay again

    Free daily breakfast, nestled on a cliff with steps to the beach (has a lot of sea kelp). Walking distance to Pismo Downtown. Good stay with three families for in-laws 50th anniversary. Weather is a bit chilly/foggy in the mornings.

    If I could, I would give zero stars. It all started with Samantha, the "manager in charge" and literally the worst customer service experience I have ever experienced. I called the hotel while I was on my  amx travel site to confirm there would be a dog friendly room available for the room I was trying to book online. They said, "yes, that won't be a problem just add it in the notes". To which I responded "can I just call immediately after I book so that I can confirm, rather than trusting the notes" as I wouldn't book the room without my dog being able to come because it is a trip with my wife for our babymoon and we wanted to bring . I called back after booking and was told that room is actually not pet friendly. This was within 2 minutes! And that there were none available. So I respectfully said no problem and called my amx travel to cancel. They started to process the cancellation and was told there was a $279 cancellation fee and that it could not be waived. They called in for me and Samantha said there was nothing she could do even though I was given the wrong information. She blamed "the call center probably gave you the wrong information, we actually haven't had any of those rooms even available today"  I then had my platinum AMX concierge call and he was told the same thing. I then called in and was told "sorry we have a 48 hour cancellation fee and probably our call center gave you the wrong information, not us at the front desk. YOUR CALL CENTER. I have worked in customer service for 15 years and when my staff makes a mistake, regardless of if they are in another state, we own up to it and do right by the customer. Samantha did no such thing and was actually extremely rude in the process. This all literally happened within 15 minutes.  I am now dealing with this at 1030 at night before trying to take my wife and dog on a trip down the coast. Thanks a lot to your incompetent staff for being  unwilling to deal with a mistake they made, for a customer who was trying to do the right thing late at night so that you could still rent this room out and not miss out with down time. Amazing. This tops the list for worst experiences of my life. I don't care how amazing the views or rooms are, I will NEVER stay here.

    The Seacrest Hotel gets 5 stars for location and zero for everything else.  By far a disappointment.  We booked the VIP pet package for an additional $50.  Don't let the video on their website for this package fool you.  First at check-in despite having a confirmation of price, we were told we needed to pay an extra $50.  It was our vacation, and after a brief discussion, we paid the extra money anyways.  We were handed a toy bone at the front desk and sent to our room.  There was no pet items in the room that we now had paid $100 for.  We called the front desk and someone brought over a ripped pet bed which was not cleaned or sealed as the video showed it would be and 2 bowls.  We loved that the hotel was pet friendly and certainly wanted to clean up after our dog outside, however both dispensers of bags outside were empty and when I went to the front desk to ask for bags I was told they didn't have any and would send maintenance to refill them which didn't happen during the 30 minutes I waited.  The towel hook in the bathroom fell off the door, the TV didn't work, the hairdryer wouldn't shut off and the whole room was very rundown.  After experiencing these disappointments, we went to the front desk to discuss the extra $50 we were charged in error and the attitude of the front desk person was unbelievable (Christina I believe was her name but I am not sure).  So incredibly rude and nasty.  She gave us nasty looks, was very short in her responses and provided horrible customer service.  Her attitude spilled over to the next morning when we checked out and saw her again. We understand that all hotels can have inconveniences and we could have overlooked many of them during our stay had the front desk person even made a minor effort to be helpful and friendly.  The Seacrest hotel has a lot of potential but needs some work and staff needs to be trained on customer service.

    We love Seacrest. The property is beautiful. The scenery gorgeous. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a nice addition but wish there were more protein options. Lots of carbs and the juice is often watered down. But we will keep coming !

  • Jul 03, 2017 by Kenna0818

    All the employees were professional and friendly. The hotel room was nice with an ocean front view. I would like to come back and stay here again. Although the continental breakfast was good, it gets a little crowded in a small room.

  • Jul 02, 2017 by Kelly B

    Awesome ocean front hotel with fantastic pool and hot tubs. Comfortable patio furniture and fire rings. The rooms were relaxing and clean, staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone!

  • Jun 29, 2017 by David R.

    So this place is super great. The staff is really nice, hands off to the managers that do all the training, your staff is awesome. The views at this hotel are fantastic, from the pool, from the jacuzzi or from one of the many many very comfortable outdoor chairs, couches and or benches located all around the grounds.   Now not only can you sit around and just stare at the beautiful ocean but you can also play corn hole, swim, and even BBQ your dinner. Then you can sit on your very own patio and eat your dinner while watching the sun set in to the pacific. This place is so great, we will be back soon! Oh by the way, did I mention that you can bring your dogs, yes this is a dog friendly hotel. Oh my God it just keeps getting better!!

  • Jun 28, 2017 by casey k

    What an awesome place to stay! Beautiful ocean views, clean an very relaxing rooms, free internet. Highly recommend Seacrest OceanFront Hotel. Further more - Outstanding customer service. Thank you Perry P. From booking over the phone to checking in you made it a smooth process.

    I brought my homemade cookies and I was eating them with my family while looking at the stars and just enjoying our evening taking and joking. We helped ourselves to the complementary teas in the Lobby of the hotel. It was late maybe around 10 Then I saw one of the staff who was cleaning and I offered him one of my cookies and he accepted it and thanked me. Then I gave my nephew a cookie to take to the to the another gentleman who seemed to be working there all night. That guy looked like from India he told my nephew "if you don't want it throw it away." Wow!!!! How rude. My nephew just walked out. I couldn't believe it. So rude. I don't know What's his name. But I am sure the people who works there knows him. All the staff that we dealt with were so sweet and very friendly. Except that guy. That rude person should not be working in a hotel. I would have given the hotel 5 stars if it wasn't for that rude person. Over all it was a wonderful place. I really loved it. We had a wonderful time. The views were amazing. Easy access to the ocean. I would come back but hopefully that rude person is gone or went through training.

  • Jun 27, 2017 by Don2156

    Found this place on trip advisor for our one night stop over, was really pleasantly surprised. We took the cheapest room still had ocean views, was pretty quiet and really comfortable bed. Location is great on a cliff top set around a pool, with steps down to the beach, pretty big wide beach there is a 4km run along the beach past town if that's your thing. Sunset was nice sat out on a verandah by reception with some fire pits really enjoyed that but boy....what a missed business opportunity for the hotel who could have laid on some snacks, dips, non alcoholic drinks......just an ice cream fridge (which were really tasty) and a shut breakfast room. Pismo beach was not our cup of tea at all! Plenty of people there so it appeals to some, we got out pretty quick! Also devastated that the coast road was shut and we had to take the inland road to Carmel !

  • Jun 26, 2017 by Thomas S

    Die Lage des Hotels ist toll und ein Spaziergang am Abend vom Dorf zurück am Strand ist einzigartig. Man kommt auch direkt vom Strand via Treppe hoch zum Hotel.. Das Zimmer war sauber und schön, allerdings shr hellhörig und da wir direkt neben der im Gang stehenden Eismaschine waren, war diese sehr laut zu hören. Das Frühstück ist klein, das wussten wir schon von anderen Bewertungen. Wirklich schwach ist aber, dass es nur zu kleine Pappteller hat und Plastikbesteck, mit welchem sich nicht mal die Butter (welche natürlich hart ist) verstreichen lässt. Richtige Teller und Besteck würden das sonst kleine Buffet wirklich sehr stark aufwerten!!

  • Jun 26, 2017 by Karsay

    We have stayed at the Sea Crest for some 30 years but hadn't been there since the remodel and upgrades. WE LOVE IT!!! From the location, to the room décor, to the comfort of the beds, to the outdoor amenities including grills that we can use ad fire pits everywhere, we love it all. What we love the most is how much time we sped on site which is unusual for a hotel stay. We spent an entire afternoon sitting at the picnic tables over looking the ocean and even ate dinner there and then we enjoyed the fire pits with other guests after dark. When we arrived we were even upgraded to a better room since one was available. The customer service was excellent. Can't wait to go back.

  • Jun 26, 2017 by Yayholiday_10

    This hotel is in a great spot although was covered in sea mist for most of our stay so we were too cold to enjoy the beach or pool. The rooms were older in style and rather small. We were placed near the hotel cleaning rooms and all we could smell was drying fabric. We had a small balcony that had a little glimpse of water from the side of the property. The beach side of the hotel was pretty with grassed areas and a nice pool & spa. Breakfast each day was included and had a range of nice food. You could sit around gas fires while you eat which was really needed as it was cold in the mornings. The cookies available each day at 3pm were delicious. The photography for this hotel makes it seem higher class than what it actually is. We had a nice stay but we're expecting something more glamorous for what we paid.

  • Jun 25, 2017 by Darren A

    We stayed here for one night - the was our second night stop on the drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Again we wished we spent another night here to see more of the area. The room (Standard King, Ocean View) had a reasonable view of the ocean from the small balcony, and was very spacious and clean. The bathroom was also a good size and also clean. The staff were also very friendly. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Pier and restaurants - note that there was no restaurant at the hotel but it did seem that one was being renovated. And it was a very nice place to sit down in the common area near the pool with a glass of wine watching the sunset !!

  • Jun 24, 2017 by Cyrilozzy

    Nice Location and nice staff, nice room, nice view so yes nice everything. Just nice not amazing but then that depends on what you are after from a room. We used it as a place to sleep after a 11 hour flight and 3 hour drive. The Location is beautiful on top of cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You can walk down steps onto the beach. Yes there's no restaurant on site but from the look of Pismo there was plenty to choose from in town. Breakfast was self service and you can eat it in the grounds or on the patio. It was plentiful and ample to get you started for the day. Our room was a King Size Suite and it was nice. Bed was comfortable which was good after such a long journey. Bathroom was large and comfy, T.V, ironing board and ice machine nearby, basically everything you want from a room and a little more. The reason for a 4 rating is because (and this is a personal opinion) if you charge what The SeaCrest charges for a room then everything you get is what you should get. We could and have paid less and got a similar service, we've got a whole lot more for our money in other hotels but we've also paid more and got less, so yes The SeaCrest is a nice comfortable choice in a very nice part of the world. We booked well in advance and they had a deal on so I would think a room here could be fairly expensive, which would make you wonder if it was all worth it, for us it was.

    I can’t say enough good things about this hotel. This is the 2nd time I’ve stayed here and I love it. The location, the freindliness of the whole staff, the cleanliness, the amenties are all awesome. I have yet to bring my dog here, but they are pet friendly so next time for sure! There was no restaurant on site (they are working on that), but free breakfast (it can get crowded & crazy) and lots of walkable restaurants close by made that a non issue. I have to give special props to RACHEL who is probably the best person in the hospitality industry that I’ve ever encountered. My sister and I were there for our bday weekend and as soon as she found out, she right away upgraded our room to a deluxe ocean front WITH a bottle of wine! How awesome is that? She brought our wine to our room with a corkscrew and two wine glasses. She was there the 2 nights we stayed and was just super friendly and accomodating. I even gave her a hug before we left because she just had that good of energy! Can’t wait to our next trip down to get what we now call “Pismo Brain” (aka Relaxed state of mind)

  • Jun 20, 2017 by 700katys

    Staff very humbly at your service. Acces to their barbecue, two jacuzzis, Rooms with view, clean. Hope Veterans will get discounts (so we can stay longer). Hotel pet friendly and grounds clean The ultimate was the clean beach, (just down steps) and your on the beach

  • Jun 19, 2017 by Fabian S

    I loved the seacrest oceanfront hotel, It has the most beautiful views, The rooms are amazingly comfortable, The fire pits, pool & jacuzzi looked so inviting, This is really the best place to stay, I can't to return here hopefully soon♡

  • Jun 19, 2017 by Jane268_13

    We spent two nights here at the end of a California road trip. It was expensive when we booked it but went ahead anyway as the advertised pictures of the rooms looked lovely and we wanted to finish our trip somewhere nice. The photos of the rooms on the web site are very flattering but in reality we were disappointed. The room was much smaller than it appeared, darker and much less comfortable than we were expecting. It was clean however and had everything we needed. When we booked we didn't know there was a major motoring event on in Pismo Beach and that is why the prices were so high. There was also a major difference in price between the Thursday and Friday nights which to us felt very exploitative. The hotel is basic, there is free breakfast and it is well situated above a lovely beach but overall we felt it is over priced and disappointing.

  • Jun 18, 2017 by paigeebrown

    I was so pleased we chose SeaCrest to stay in Pismo Beach for the first time. I have an annual event in SLO and usually stay up there. We wanted to try something new, and I now regret all the stays in SLO when I could have stayed here! The hotel is very well remodeled with modern colors and cozy areas for families and couples. The view and access to the beach are beautiful and convenient. The jacuzzi and pool areas are generous in size, pristine and gorgeous with plenty of towels. The furniture and stunning blue glass fire pits along with the bright romantic outdoor lighting is a source of instant pleasure whether you are enjoying it for breakfast in the morning facing the Pacific, or in the afternoon relaxing, or barbecuing at the clean new bbq's out on the pool deck. It's like being at home, but in a luxury resort. The fact that is is also dog friendly is a real plus for me and I hope to bring my dog next time. Parking was convenient, as was location to all amenities. Compliments to John at the front desk, who recommended a fantastic restaurant, told me about the hotel amenities, brought me my free beer to my deluxe room, and much to my shock, was the epitome of warm customer service, remembering my name the next day and saying hello. I'm not sure that's ever happened to me at another hotel. Wow. So simple but something that most hotels miss... customer service. Thank you John. The room itself was stylish, comfortable and clean and I wanted to move in quite frankly after our stay.

    Beautiful view from most rooms. Very clean rooms and the grounds are well kept. Great evening accommodations with numerous fire pits, mood lighting & gathering areas. It's wonderful to fall asleep listening to the surf!

    Das Hotel liegt erst mal absolut toll: Direkt an der Küste, etwa 20 Meter über dem Meer an einer Steilküste. Direkter Zugang zum meilenweiten (Sand-)Strand, ein Pool und drei Whirlpools (teilweise viel zu warm), mehrere Grills zum Selbstgrillen, ein ordentliches Frühstück, Cookies am Spätnachmittag, eine für alle Hotelgäste zugängliche Dachterrasse, Nach dem Sonnenuntergang überall brennende Feuerschalen, das alles hat schon was. Wirklich billig kann solch ein Spaß nicht sein, aber wir haben zwei Nächte verbracht und sind der Meinung, dass das seinen Preis wert war....

  • Jun 14, 2017 by Thomas S

    An die wenig reizvolle Auswahl beim Frühstücksbuffet in US-amerikanischen Hotels gewöhnt man sich als verwöhnter Europäer (wenig Auswahl, schlechte Fast Food-Qualität). Das es jedoch nicht einmal ein Restaurant gibt, in dem man sein Frühstück einnehmen kann, war uns neu.... Das Positive: Die Lage des Hotels ist sensationell! Über einer felsigen Steilküste gelegen, hat man eine tolle Aussicht auf das Meer und den umliegenden Strandabschnitt. Über Holztreppen erreicht man den Strand mit seinem feinen Sand. Leider konnten wir aufgrund des kühlen Wetters nicht die Vorzüge des Hotels genießen, weswegen wir am Strand entlang nach Pismo Beach spaziert sind. Sehr schön! Das Neutrale: Die Zimmer sind nicht abgewohnt, aber auch nicht wirklich modern. Da haben wir in dieser Preisklasse besseres gesehen. Dennoch hat es für eine Nacht gereicht. Das Seltsame: In der Früh hatte es nur 14 Grad und es war nebelig. Es gab nur einen kleine Raum mit ca. 5x3m mit dem üblichen Frühstücksbuffet (Toast, Waffel, kaffeeähnliches Wasser). Wir haben den Speisesaal gesucht und sind nach Befragen anderer Gäste - nein, man kann sich nur ins Freie auf die Terrasse setzen - mit unserem Frühstück auf unsere Zimmer balanciert..... Fazit: Schönes Hotel, typisch Westküste (wie auch immer man das verstehen will), mit traumhafter Lage und trotz des Frühstücks sehr schönen Erinnerungen. Würden wir mehrere Nächte dort verbringen? Ich würde mir definitiv noch andere Hotels ansehen....

  • Jun 13, 2017 by Hans Poschman

    I love going to the SeaCrest. We go there a couple times a year for events. They have a beautiful back lawn area that has a great ocean view. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We love locally and have even done a staycation there because it is so relaxing.

  • Jun 13, 2017 by FAllan93

    We only stayed here for one night during a California trip but this was definitely one of the highlights hotel-wise. The hotel was easy enough to find with the sat-nav. We arrived well before check in time however this didn't seem a problem and we were allocated our room fairly quickly. After going out for dinner that evening to a local restaurant we came back to see the sunset. There was cookies and hot beverages available in the hotel lobby to take and sit outside around the fire pits with. We took advantage of the breakfast option that was added into the price of the room. It was a continental breakfast but there was plenty of options and plenty food to go around. There was around 3 different types of cereal, bagels and bread for toasting, muffins, yoghurts, fruit and pastries. Overall, it was a lovely stay even if it was just for one night. Friendly staff and lovely location in the Pismo Beach area.

  • Jun 12, 2017 by Alliiie

    We had a wonderful experience at SeaCrest. From the moment we checked in, Rachel took such good care of us. We received a room upgrade (thank you!!) and had the most amazing suite, with a balcony and incredible views of the Ocean. There was even a nice little personalised note in the room. All the staff were really helpful, but Rachel was really the star of our stay. Helping us out with restaurant recommendations, and other activities. Thanks so much to the whole team!

  • Jun 12, 2017 by W5594TTmarys

    My husband and I have been to Seacrest several times, but this time we were able to bring our son and grandson along. Everything was perfect! The needs of the guests...ALL guests, from the toddlers to the grandparents to the four-legged guests...are anticipated. We had a ground floor room, because we wanted to be "in the mix" with all the activities. (nice to have the choice) We loved watching the kids play various games on the grass, greeting the friendly dogs as they passed by, trying to count the pelicans as they flew by in large groups...etc... The pool and all three hot tubs were immaculate. Slipping out to have early breakfast with grandson overlooking the ocean...priceless. Not to mention the morning stroll on the beach searching for tiny treasures, followed by fishing at the Port Luis Pier. Just great! We love, love the BBQ area and enjoyed BBQing delicious swordfish we bought at the pier...that was swimming that morning! We watched as the parents with the toddlers started BBQing hot dogs at about 5pm, then the parents with older children started cooking burgers at about 6pm. Then the adults came out with appetizers and wine a little later, followed by steaks and seafood about 8 !! It was lovely! That was followed by some time by the fire meeting people and chatting and even a little guitar playing and singing along. I felt like everything my family needed was provided, and all I had to do was just spend time with them and make wonderful memories...so that's what we did! Thanks to the great staff for all you do :)

    Stayed her for the first time in a family suite for three nights.  What a delight!   The views are amazing and there are so many special places to enjoy them.  You really can't go anywhere on the grounds without a gorgeous view of the Pacific.  The staircase  that leads down to the beach was just outside the patio of our room.   The multiple fire pits at night are a nice touch.   This place has a retro resort kind of feel.   The family suite was perfect for my husband and I, and our 15 year old.    Truly enjoyed our stay and we will be back.

    If there was a 4.5 star rating I would have left that. I think if we would have been there on a normal day I would have given a 5 star review. We stayed here for 2 nights and the one full day that we were here was the day that the hotel had the palm trees trimmed up. This lead to chain saw noise for a few hours during the mid-morning to early afternoon time period. Not really much the hotel could have done about it but was still not great. With that said the location is fantastic, the pool area with a cooler hot tub that is fenced in and then two separate fenced in hot tubs that are hotter. This makes it nice as the kids are in one area and you can get away from them if you want to. The walking path down to the beach is nice and allows you to walk on the sand all the way to the pier and past at high tide with no issues. There is no on sight restaurant but there is a good continental breakfast in the morning. They also have alcohol that can be delivered to the room (beer and bottles of wine from what I can remember). There is also a nightly wine tasting on the terrace (which we missed both nights we were here). Happy with our stay.

    I was quoted 288. For a Friday night, husband had to call next day to talk with Jason (manager) for military discount. Just got credit card bill 323.31. Wow! We had stayed twice before, had a wing room. That was great, this time had room over lobby by pool. Blinding lights when on balcony and by pool, not enjoyable. Wasn't gonna complain, til I got my bill. We don't get away much so I didn't want to be complaining.

  • Jun 08, 2017 by Defibjoe

    This is usually our favorite place to stay when we are in Pismo Beach. Over the years it is has always been our choice hotel. They are always keeping the grounds and rooms up to date and we've loved the experience! We were in one of the beach front king bed rooms which are spectacular! Beautiful design and definitely up to date with a modern feel. The only reason we gave this hotel a 1 star rating instead of a 5 star was that they have set up these large strands of bright lights that are so bright at night that you can't even see the ocean! Why get an ocean view room and pay extra if you can't actually see the ocean! If the lights were on a timer till like midnight, it would make all the difference in the world. After about midnight anyway, there were no more people out sitting under them anyway. The room we were in was like daytime the whole night because of the lighting and the inability to close shades enough to keep it out. We didn't sleep much that night and staff wasn't helpful. "Sorry they stay on ALL night on a timer", they said. We have ALWAYS stayed here, but unfortunately it will probably be our last. We absolutely LOVE all the fun amenities they have set up all over the grounds but the lights alone were a deal breaker for us! The room didn't even have curtains to shade the sun lights so we could sleep, only blinds, which were pretty but couldn't close enough to get rid of the brightness. I hope they change the current lighting setup, because everything else is amazing! If they were even one a dim cycle it would make a difference. They didn't used to have the light and the grounds were amazing, even kind of romantic, but not now! Sorry SeaCrest but unfortunately people don't want to pay $250 a night not to sleep. After all that's ultimately why they are there.....

    We had the most wonderful family vacation at Sea Crest.  Our room was clean and updated, conveniently located close to the pool.  The staff was friendly, courteous and professional.  The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained.  Loved having the grassy area around the pool.  Two hot tubs, one on either side of the property.   Several fire pits and lovely seating areas.  Beautiful ocean views.  Loved sitting around the fire pits and hearing the ocean beside us.  A lovely breakfast was served each day and warm cookies in the lobby every night.  Relaxing and beautiful, reminded us of a place we stay in Hawaii.  We brought our dog and felt perfectly comfortable having her there as did many others.  While we've been to Pismo many times this was our firsts stay at Sea Crest.  We will definitely return again and again.

    I will start by saying...I usually book mid to upscale chain hotels but after reading some reviews I thought I would really enjoy the location of this hotel...so I booked it for two nights. I was surprised about the GREAT quality this hotel has going for it! First, it is only a short walk to the beach, you walk by the pool, down some stairs and you are at the beach....and it is a beach with seashells! (Remember - not all beaches in Calif. have seashells!) Second, the rooms are modern, showers are VERY large and it is extremely clean! My room was an ocean view - GREAT VIEW! The rooms are also equipped with a fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker on a little island with chairs. One thing I noticed that was different from other hotels I've booked - the pillows - they were GREAT- puffy and firm. Third, the hotel serves complimentary breakfast...dry cereal, oatmeal, pastries, bagels, waffles, hard boiled eggs and assorted juices/coffee. Granted no meat but you get to eat on one of the many patios, by a fire pits, overlooking the ocean-so no problem! I was also impressed with the front desk - we had a question on "How do we get to Hearst Castle?" - and they promptly had a map in hand giving directions.The SeaCrest staff was extremely professional - but they had a down home feel - which was so refreshing...I got the impression that they liked their jobs and cared about the customers. Presently they do not have a restaurant but they are in the process of building one - with that said, the main town is a five min. drive with places to eat. After, reading this review, I think the real question is, would you book this hotel again?...My answer...in a heartbeat, it was great!

    We stayed at the Seacrest for a wedding weekend getaway. The room was spacious and very clean, but the particular room we book was very dark on the first level with a 'balcony' that just faced a wall. No natural light in the room at all. There are only a few rooms it would seem that have this poor a location, and I was really disappointed to lay the same rate for a room that felt like we were in a basement. Was happy with cleanliness of the room and conscience of the hotel location, but probably wouldn't book again due to price paid for cavern

    Fantastic view, photos on website match current conditions, 2017.  Clean, beach access with large well kept grass area by pool. Will definitely stay here again!!!

    Found this place by luck and we can't wait to come back! The property is well kept and rooms are nice. The views are amazing and the front desk staff was quick and attentive! The town itself is adorable. I wish we had more time to enjoy the hotel and town!

    Splendida posizione sull'oceano. Camera ampia e pulita, spazio esterno curato e accogliente. Forse, per un posto del genere, la colazione è un po' poco varia. L'ascensore lento completa i lati negativi. Volendo si raggiunge piano beach co. 10 minuti a piedi, via spiaggia o via strada. Davvero notevole

    Staff was awesome as usual, the best place to stay in Pismo. Clean, on the beach and very professional staff. Reggie, thanks for getting us the Best room!!!

    We had a wonderful stay at the SeaCrest Hotel! The staff was welcoming, helpful and attentive. The hotel was full of families, which was a bonus for us since we were traveling with our 3.5 year old. We enjoyed the breakfast and ate at the hotel all three days we stayed. We took advantage of the pool and hot tubs and the Thirst Aid service. (Tip: If you decline to have housekeeping clean your room they leave you a $10 Thirst Aid voucher). I wouldn't say the hotel is high-end but it's comfortable and accommodating with great amenities. We would definitely stay here again in the future. The only downsides I can think of - 1. the towels and bed linens have been washed probably a gazillion times and are quite stiff and scratchy and 2. the access to the beach can be a little difficult to maneuver. At the end of the (very tall and steep) stairs you have to navigate over a large pile of rocks that are slippery at times and difficult to cross. I saw families with young kids or babies having a tough time getting across them and some older folks having to get help or crouch down and use their hands as well. Unfortunately this is the only beach access from the SeaCrest.

    Room is surprisingly comfortable with excellent bedding, large mini fridge, and microwave. Free WiFi too. Although our room says "no view" we can see the ocean from our deck, and hear it's soothing sound by opening our deck window. Super quiet floor and staff has been friendly and helpful. I'd be happy to stay here again.

    From the time we walked in until the time we left it was great. At first the price seemed a little high but trust me it was worth it. The room is very nice and clean, the view is amazing. There are plenty of terraces with fire pits to keep you warm in cooler weather. The continental breakfast was good but not great. The front desk staff was some of the friendliest people I have ever encountered at a hotel. The beach view was fantastic, and the stairway was ideal to make it possible to explore the beach. My only regret in staying here was that we only spent one night. If you are looking for a relaxing romantic place with a view this is it.

    I can't say enough great things about the seacrest. We came with my father who has to use a walker. The seacrest was very accommodating of him and made to consistently check with us that the accommodations were working for him. The grassy area by the pools was great for my toddler to run around while we watched him. Nice walk down to the ocean, beautiful views. Cannot beat the beach access.

    Es un lindo hotel con una ubicación panorámica, de frente al mar sobre una posición elevada, por lo que da unas vistas magníficas del mar y las playas aledañas. Si bien no tiene playa bien al frente, bajando por unas escaleras se accede a la playa que está al lado. La ambientación es muy buena, tiene una terraza frente al mar con sillones y prenden unas fogatas con gas muy pintorescas. Tiene dos torres de habitaciones (norte y sur), cada una con 4 pisos y una terraza en cada torre para poder tomar algo y disfrutar de las vistas. Hay mucho parking disponible, sin cargo, al igual que la conexion wifi. En resumen un muy lindo hotel. La única contra que le encontramos es que no tiene lugar cerrado para desayunar, se hace en el exterior del hotel, por lo que en las mañanas frescas no es muy cómodo...

    We just completed another wonderful stay at this resort. We've been vacationing here for 30+ years. Beautiful views, lovely rooms and wonderful staff. As we were putting our luggage into our car this morning our housekeeper, Norma, ran out to give my husband his wallet which he had left in our room. Many thanks, Norma! (Note to Management: we stayed in room 210 and checked out on May 26, 2017.)

  • May 25, 2017 by Traci B

    The room's are beautiful - nice ocean view - Very clean! It was my husband's birthday and we went here to celebrate. One of the manager's gave us a complimentary bottle of wine for his birthday. Nice!

  • May 25, 2017 by RBSTL

    We stayed in a very nice oceanfront room overlooking Pismo Beach. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. The best part of the room was the window seat overlooking the ocean. The continental breakfast was average, and the only available seating was outside, which would have been fine if it weren't for the fact that it was a bit chilly in the morning. Even though they had outdoor gas fire pits running it was a bit uncomfortable at times. As a fun bonus, we were in town to see the Amgen Tour of California and one of the teams (BMC) was actually staying at our hotel. The front desk staff were all very friendly and extremely accommodating. They took lots of time answering our questions about the area and always seemed glad to be of help. I would definitely recommend the SeaCrest to anyone looking for a place to stay in Pismo Beach.

  • May 24, 2017 by lizzybl8

    Grounds, breakfast, staff, cleanliness, appearance, location and provided activities are #1. the best! Wine tasting, movie night, warm cookies in the eve. local ice creme avail. for purchase, luxury all the way. pool, tubs, green lush ground, paths to walk or scooter around for kids. we play Frisbee, hangout on our patio, and utilize beach access off property and use the grills for cooking corn and food.Now we know the best local vegetarian eateries and parks, playgrounds to visit.

    Recently as of Mother's Day Weekend my wife and I along with many members of our family, about 25 stayed at this this hotel while attending our son's wedding in nearby Arroyo Grande. I have to say the staff personnel we encountered were polite and helpful. A special thanks to Christina and Perry who worked the front desk went out of their way to make are stay a fantastic one. Both accommodated my family's needs beyond expectations. Definitely an asset to the Sea Crest Hotel staff. The night time security personnel were friendly and allowed us a few extra minutes at the roof top lounge and lower fire pit areas to enjoy our family, many who traveled from out of state. The hotel grounds were awesome with great views of the pacific and Pismo beach pier. Rooms were clean and had good ocean views. I highly recommend this hotel as a place to stay.

  • May 21, 2017 by Angelique DeLaCruz

    This hotel was definitely worth the price. Me and my family had a relative visiting from out of town while we all stayed there in two separate rooms. The rooms were very clean and well-stocked. The View was amazing and there was so much for my kids to do who range from 2 years old to 10 years old. I felt very safe letting them run around as everything is pretty much gaited and can only be accessed with a card key for the hotel. It's such an easy access to the beach that you need only walk down some steps from your very own room. We had such a nice time and will definitely be returning. I would recommend SeaCrest OceanFront hotel to all my family and friends.

  • May 21, 2017 by Hillary

    For our wedding, the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel was a casual, laid back, unpretentious venue with an unbeatable location. It provided the ultimate California experience, which is exactly what we wanted since many of our guests were traveling from Europe. Growing up on the Central Coast, I"m familiar with Pismo Beach, but since I no longer live in the area, we took a risk and booked the SeaCrest without viewing it in person beforehand. We were not disappointed!! We had the ceremony outdoors on the lawn and the reception on the terrace, which was an ideal size for 85 guests. Even though hotel guests can use the facilities and there"s public beach access, staff members blocked off the walkways during the ceremony so that we weren"t disturbed. We had a cocktail hour on the lawn, which was ideal for people to enjoy the views. For the reception, the terrace is right on the cliff bluffs, behind the swimming pool and hot tubs, so it was actually a relatively private space. Since the hotel doesn"t have a restaurant, we had to arrange for catering and a bar, but they have a list of recommended vendors and we selected a great one to work with. We also took advantage of the special flower package they have with Sprigs Floral Designs, which I highly recommend! Since lots of our guests weren"t from the area, many of them stayed at the hotel using a special discount code that was given to us. It was so convenient to have our guests staying on site, with the ceremony and reception in the same location. As a part of the wedding package, we got a 2-night stay in an amazing ocean facing room, giving us lots of time to socialize with our guests during the weekend. The event manager, Jess, was so helpful and friendly and always responded quickly to emails. During our reception, staff member Lisa was there to assist and she was also so enthusiastic and helpful. I wouldn"t change anything about our experience and would highly recommend the SeaCrest!

    Ein tolles Hotel. Ein Superausblick über den Pazifik. Über ein kleinen Weg, die Klippen hinunter, kommt man zum Strand. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber. Personal sehr freundlich. Gefrühstückt wurde immer draußen. Bei den vielen Sitzgelegenheiten, war dieses gar kein Problem. Falls es zu frisch ist, werden die Feuerstellen entfacht. Grillen ist auch kein Problem, ein schöner Grillplatz ist vorhanden.

  • May 20, 2017 by pnn991

    LOVED the Pismo SeaCrest!! Beautiful location. We had a king, oceanfront room. Great view from room. Very, very clean, modern room. Grounds are beautifully maintained with pool, spas, fire pits, BBQs, tables for eating & chairs for lounging. Front desk staff very, very friendly & helpful & hotel staff very nice & helpful too. Can’t wait for our next visit!

  • May 20, 2017 by TSH1949

    Passisng through Pismo Beach without a hotel reservation and was able to get a room at the SeaCrest, room 410 to be exact. A great room, large well appointed with a fantastic view of the Pacific ocean. We wished that we could have stayed longer. Nice staff, ok breakfast included. Look forward to returning.

  • May 19, 2017 by Sylvia V.

    Returned to the hotel to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.  The hotel staff welcomed us with a nice bottle of wine and chocolate truffles - very kind gesture -  THANK YOU. Front desk personnel is friendly and accommodating.  Location is great and rooms are spacious and clean.   We visit the hotel 2-3 times per year and will continue to do so.

  • May 17, 2017 by Carolina V

    I had another wonderful trip to Pismo, and stayed for our second time at Seacrest, I love the views from our balcony and listening to the waves at night .. The room is nice the bed is comfy and can't wait to go back in a few months. Also the staff was very nice and attentive.

  • May 17, 2017 by Michael M

    We had a great room with a sea view (when the fog cleared) well equipped with frig and microwave. Lovel rooftop wine tasting to get the evening going. Very well appointed hotel, managed by caring friendly staff.

  • May 16, 2017 by gdaples

    Pros - nice location. Great view from room, nice staff, good daily breakfast. Didn't use the pool or jacuzzi but looked ok. Nice outdoor seating areas. Cons - outdated room and decor, room smelled a bit at entry, the shower was weird, water spilled everywhere and shower head didn't work right

  • May 16, 2017 by redeye_091776

    My wife and I revisited Pismo Beach the week of 5/8 and we stayed at the SeaCrest for the very first time. We checked out the reviews, checked out the pics of the deluxe oceanfront rooms at the hotel, and we decided this was the place to go. How was it? I'm happy to report it was a first-class experience all the way! The room was very nice (nice decor, 42" HDTV, dresser for cloths, fridge/microwave, etc), the hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating... there was also a continental breakfast served every day and fresh cookies placed out in the afternoon for hotel guests, etc. Our room also had a private balcony... and from this balcony we got simply stunning views of the ocean and Pismo Beach. And many more stunning ocean/beach views are available from the ground as well... and there is also a set of stairs behind the hotel that takes you right down to the north end of Pismo Beach. Just awesome. My wife and I will definitely be coming back to this first-class hotel... no reason for us to look anywhere else at this point.

    Our stay at the Seacrest exceeded expectations in so many ways! I contacted them before our arrival to inquire about upgrading our room, as we were celebrating our anniversary. Not only did they upgrade us free of charge, our room had an amazing view, was one of the most comfortable and well-equipped I've stayed in, AND they left a cute welcome note and chocolates for us in our room! What a lovely touch! The best parts about the room: * The bed was HEAVENLY! Seriously - so comfy. I didn't want to get out! * The view! The balcony was our favorite hang out for cocktail hour and morning coffee. So peaceful and relaxing. * The amenities were impressive. Full kitchenette feel (microwave, Keurig, refrigerator and cute little bar sitting area). Great bathroom set up (nice bath products, large bathroom). The best parts about the property: * The firepits at sunset. Just beautiful and seriously relaxing. I felt like I was a world away from the worries of home. Also nice to socialize with other guests. A great perk. * The hot tubs were large and had tons of lounging space. It's nice that there are three. We had one all to ourselves! * Although we didn't use them, the outdoor bbq's looked great. * Basic yet filling breakfast. Trays are provided, so you can bring your breakfast up to the balcony and enjoy that beautiful view! Other perks: * Proximity to the Pismo Beach pier area. It was a 15 minute walk down the beach. I wasn't sure about taking the steep stairs down and walking there, but it ended up being the best part! Such a lovely beach to walk on - very packed sand. An easy and fun walk. * Wooly's on the pier for dinner and drinks. Great view, great seafood, great service. * Absolutely wonderful service at the Seacrest. Everyone was friendly, helpful and accommodating. We are already talking about going back for a longer stay! The Seacrest is a new favorite, for sure. A total escape from the hustle and bustle of home. Thank you for an awesome stay and an amazing anniversary celebration, Seacrest!

    I read reviews on Yelp all the time. It helps me make decisions for planning many things.  This is the first time I've taken the time write a review.   We chose the SeaCrest over several other hotels in the area. The reason for the 2 stars is because the hotel itself is nice and has a great view.  The rooms are also decent.  Unfortunately I would not stay here again.   Here are the reasons for my rating: 1.  When I checked in, I didn't find the person helping me to be friendly.  The woman even seemed a little sarcastic with her responses to my questions.   2.  The pool was freezing even though I was told it was heated to 83 degrees when I called in advance.  When I asked the front desk about whether the pool was actually heated to 83 degrees they kind of laughed at my question and said they would check with engineering. No one asked for my room number to follow up with me with an answer.  They also said that, because it was windy, the water cools down a little.  I would bet that the pool was not heated anywhere close to 83 degrees.   After the above issues, I was already feeling disappointed in our hotel choice.  The next point takes the cake... (I probably would not have written a review based on just points 1 and 2 above).   3.  I left a very expensive flat iron in our room.  My husband and I remember exactly where we left it.  We called and apparently it is no where to be found.  This is the first time that that I've ever left anything at a hotel and it hasn't been found.  Perhaps my very expensive flat iron has feet that I did not know about and walked out of the room its own.   Overall, I'm very disappointed in my experience at the hotel.

    I happened on this hotel walking from another hotel I was staying at and fell in love with it. The fire pits are so cozy and the view is breathtaking. They have two bbqs that are right in the common area. I was so sad to leave, since I was booked at another hotel for a lot more money. This place is worth the money. A real gem, even locals stay here. I met a group from the area, who 'stay cay' here and spend weekends on special occasions. That says a lot about the property. Also they have really good coffee for free in the lobby. I got some on my way out.

  • May 15, 2017 by Denise S

    Beautiful rooms, grounds and the sound of the ocean right outside. Perfect for a relaxing weekend getaway. Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and nice pool area. We were able to walk everywhere and just enjoyed sitting out on the cliffs.

  • May 15, 2017 by Rachel M.

    We received a beautiful free room upgrade upon checking in. The room is gorgeous and overlooking the Pacific. I feel the calm washing over me as I sit on the couch in my room and gaze at the ocean.

    My first stay at the seacrest was October 25 1965, Yes I said 1965 on my honeymoon. We stayed at the recommendation of my father-in-law who was a regular guest at that time. I recently stayed with you folks from 3/29/17 to 04/01/17    Here is a list on things you should know about your hotel, staff and procedures. 1.    Every time I stay the clerk at the front desk says " just ask for me and I will take care of your needs Mr. Criona." Unfortunately, you seem to change staff about as often as I change underwear (daily). Every time I ask for one girl or another she has left your employ. 2.    I do receive your  email offers which your staff seem to know little about. I received an offer which stated book 1 night save 10% book 2 nights save 20% book 3 nights (I think) save 30%. When I booked the room over the phone I had to mention the offer to the person on the phone, She did not know about the program. Ultimately, I did receive a 20% discount for the 2 night stay. 2a.    When checking in I asked if our room (Signature Deluxe Room) was booked for the following 2 nights. We were told the room was not reserved, however the hotel would not honor the price I paid for the first 2 nights, I felt that was unfair but finally I was offered  a 10% discount.  We decided to stay 1 more night not 2 for a total of 3 nights. 3.    For ecological reasons, we decided as usual to not have our linens/towels changed as we have done in the past. When we returned from our daily activities we realized the coffee nor water was replaced. When I complained to the front desk, I was told when we put that cars on the door no one would enter the room, ergo no coffee nor water would be replaced, and that I could get more K pode at the front desk. Now since no where does the ecology card mention those facts. How am I supposed to know that, by osmosis? 4.    Later in our stay, I discovered by accident HBO is available. Once again How am I do know this fact? By Osmosis? There were no TV channel guide or HBO guide in the room. I looked. 5.    Finally, on my arrival date there was an American Express charge to my card for $25.00. What was that for? I was never told the reason for that charge. 6.    So you are aware, I turned in the $10.00 voucher to have the front desk gift an ice cream or treat to the next child who wanted such. 7.    For the second time the first day of my stay I had to report the main light bulb in the fan was burned out.  This stay I told 4 people including the front desk twice before some people finally came to replace the bulb that was on the 2nd day. 2 days to replace a bulb? Not good.  Same thing last October (I think).

    We stayed here one night only while driving between San Francisco and LA.. really disappointed we didn't stay longer. Our room was absolute waterfront, probably one of the most spacious hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. It had a huge king size bed, a spa and a beautiful little lounge nook in a bay window area overlooking the ocean.. best night sleep I have had in ages, listening to the ocean .. only negative is we had to go elsewhere to get dinner.. no onsite restaurant.. other than that it was perfect ...

  • May 14, 2017 by MinnAvidTraveler

    We came for one night. My husband hates to make reservations and likes to move on. We walked in our first afternoon and knew we found our happy place. Room was very clean and had an absolutely stunning view. Grounds were immaculate. Lots of staff everywhere working. The Front Desk accommodated us the next two nights we called to extend our stay with no problems. Great vibe here. Relaxing, family friendly, no big parties, incredible location, decent continental breakfast. We are already planning our next trip back. Honestly, I thought this was a pretty good value and I have traveled quite a bit. Worth every penny. So much love for the SeaCrest. Cannot wait for our next visit. I'm not giving up our room number cause we want it again.

  • May 14, 2017 by dcnjomas

    One of the most beautiful trip I have taken. My children plan this trip for my Mothers Day. Employees the most friendly and kind. We are planning another trip and stay. Like the idea of BBQ your own meals and sit by the fire pit with a glass of wine.!

  • May 13, 2017 by Flobeetle

    J'avais beaucoup misé sur cet hôtel par mois les 14 hôtels différents de notre roadtrip car les photos faisaient vraiment envie. Les photos sont bien réel, mais le service est à revoir Nous sommes arrivé à 18h30 et nous avons vu que nous dérangions. Accueil digne d'un formule 1 à 45€ la nuit en banlieue parisienne. Hormis cela, l'hôtel possède sa piscine avec accès directement sur la plage. Petit dej jusqu a 10h (nous l'avons appris en le demandant à une femme de chambre car on nous a rien expliqué à notre arrivée). Beaucoup de choix mais je vous conseil de vous servir des que vous arrivez car si vous souhaitez vous resservir vers 9h45, le personnel est déjà en train de tout ranger et vous le fait savoir Au final, il y a du choix sur pismo et je pense qu'il y a mieux

  • May 12, 2017 by Mada P.

    So my wife and I was here for a night and we sat our fatass on our chair playing music on the TV and singing karaokes. The volume was on low. This old mofo came and knocked the fuck out of the door and then yell at me that I was too loud. I was like wow! You could at least warn me nicely. But he's like idgaf. I'm like...ask nicely bitch. He's like thank you. I'm like  you're welcome Jesus. He walk away... Damn...that was rude.

  • May 11, 2017 by Jesse R.

    I travel to Pismo Beach often and love the hotels in the area. One of my favorites, if not the favorite, was the Seacrest Inn. But this recently changed. Reason for the downgrade? Their customer service at the front counter is lacking. I booked an ocean front room months ago and specifically made it a point to call and request a certain wing. When I showed up they assigned me the only 1st floor ocean front room they had available, which was in an entirely different wing. I was not happy. Apparently, Seacrest was in the process of cleaning all their first floor rooms, which limited the available rooms they could provide. Helloooo??? Seacrest, you ever think about calling your customers and letting them know this was going on??? Had I known my room choices were going to be limited I would have stayed somewhere else.

  • May 11, 2017 by Erica R.

    Our previous stay was a delight and the reason why we chose to patronize the SeaCrest again. But sadly our most recent experience was disappointing. We booked our room via the phone, so we could assure we would be getting a ground-level room in the North Tower with walkout access to the lawn area. This was very important to us, because we have a 2 year old daughter and wanted to do nothing more than sit outside and play all day. That is not what we got! Instead we got the room I specifically did not want. One with a stucco wall which, while seated, was too tall to see over and had two glass windows which left us feeling like animals in a zoo display. Who obstructs a beautiful ocean view with a stucco wall? We expressed willingness to downgrade to a room with a pool view so long as it had the walkout access we desired. Unfortunately all of those rooms had recently undergone carpet cleaning and were unavailable. Now whose bright idea was it to clean the carpet in all of those rooms at the same time? And why wasn't this communicated to us upon our booking. I reluctantly accepted the room I did not want, but it was the nonchalant manner in which this matter was handled that left me upset. What bothered me most is that there was no apologetic tone. No sincere concern for the fact we traveled from Virginia to Pismo Beach for our family vacation. No acknowledgment of our disappointment or frustration. We feel dealing with SeaCrest is a gamble because they are not able to accommodate specific room requests unlike neighboring hotels. And it's
