We have family in Shell Beach and have elected to continue returning to Seacrest at every visit, two or three times a year. Staff is always cordial, rooms are clean, view is amazing, grounds are well kept and clean and room rates are reasonable. The property is centrally located.

We had a wonderful time at your resort and had a wonderful time. I would appreciate two things: 1) New beds, we stayed in room 118 and that bed was terrible. 2) Showers at the pool or somewhere to allow guests to take off sand and not bring it into the hot tub and pool.

Thank you for letting us know your room number. We are currently in the process of replacing mattresses in our rooms and will make sure we get the one in 118 replaced! Also, we do have an outdoor shower near the South Spa for guests to wash off after coming up from the beach. It is nice to hear you...

We stayed here for two nights for our anniversary! We booked the spa deluxe room and we're not disappointed! We had the 4th floor/corner room.

It is pleasing to hear you enjoyed the views and location of your room. How lucky that you were able to enjoy some whale watching--they seem to be frequenting in front of our hotel all of summer. Thank you for taking the time to share your trip with us and Happy Anniversary!

We're not particular fans of the Pismo Beach area . . . better for young families with kids than aging empty nesters. But the SeaCrest can be quite nice if your are very specific in your room selection. Ours was a Deluxe Ocean Front Room and it lived up to its name in almost all respects. The room was about...

I came here on a Monday, August 17th for two nights. The room we were given was on the fourth floor, room 416. The hotel is right next to the highway. We had to keep the air conditioner on to drown out the noise. We asked for a better room, away from the freeway. That room was on the 3rd...

We stayed just one night in a King Ocean view room. The room was clean and nicely decorated.Front desk help was very friendly and allowed us to check in early, as our room was ready.

Came here this past week with the kids and dog. Booked a pet friendly room on 2 different nights. There was a nice small dog bed and dishes in the closet for you to use during your stay. If your pet is more than 20 lbs the bed will probably be too small. There is a $25.00 extra charge per...
