I was really excited to get home and write this review of this little gem I felt I had found! It's not luxurious, it's not 5 star, but it is a great little hotel. I got a partial view of the ocean. I arrived on their "Winesday" rooftop wine tasting. They have stair access directly to the beach. They have...

Dear DMBfan, First let me thank you for your kind words about the hotel and it’s amenities and service. More importantly though is the matter of your iPad. Our guests, and their belongings, are of utmost importance to us. We can use GPS technology to help guests locate their lost devices, and have done so in the past to great...

Went for a couple of nights with my wife and our 3 kids and all of us came back home with wonderful memories. We really enjoyed having the opportunity to BBQ our own dinner and enjoying our meal on the magnificent patio. Rooms and all amenities very very clean.

We love this hotel. Stay here every time we come to Pismo. Clean rooms, nice tvs, close to everything! Hours are perfect. Not insanely loud. Ocean views are the best. Perfect for a family visit. Our son loves the pool and the spa. We can easily walk down to the beach. Love it! 😎

High on a cliff above Pismo beach this resort is family friendly and includes light breakfast. Request ocean view rooms in the tower for both privacy and wonderful view. Only issue is beach access is by very steep, long flights of stairs. Beach is however gorgeous, clean.

Stayed here with Road Scholar group. Good continental breakfast. Beautiful grounds on high cliff over looking ocean. Convenient to natural sights such as elephant seals on beach, Monarch butterfly grove, etc.

Rooms are clean- we checked for bed bugs- and staff is friendly. The property itself is a gem! Stairs leading down to the beach have been reinforced and feel safe. Pool is heated and parking is ample. Make sure you go early to get your free cookies daily, they run out fast! Definitely will be back again!

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're not particular fans of the Pismo Beach area . . . better for young families with kids than aging empty nesters.
