“Wonderful oceanfront hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

The rooms have been updated, the private balconies provide a wonderful view of Pismo Beach, with stairs down to the beach, three jacuzzis, outdoor seating on the deck with heaters, comfortable beds and bedding and new shower jets. It's a wonderful property and includes breakfast. It's a real jewel at a great price. We will definitely make this one of our regular getaway spots.

Room Tip: Book one of the ocean view rooms. The deluxe corner rooms have a sitting area with great views.

This is the second time we have stayed at SeaCrest and I would come back without hesitation. This hotel is a great value (we booked the Ocean View King room) when you book in advance and get the advance purchase discount. Our king bed was very comfortable, our room was spacious and clean and the ocean view was spectacular. Steamers restaurant down the street had good food, good service and great views. There is lots to do in Pismo. We walked to the Monarch butterfly grove, and drove to Avila Beach. There are lots of local vineyards with wine tasting if that is something you enjoy.

Room Tip: Ground level rooms have sliding doors to the grounds and upper level rooms have balconies. We have s...

We have stayed at the SeaCrest for years. I think we have been going there for around 30 years. The old owners took very good care of us. The new Corporation is not personal like it used to be, but the Manager this last time took really good care of us. He said they want to be personal. He did everything he couuld do to make us happy with our stay and to take care of the room problem we had when we arrived. I would certainly ask to speak to the manager if the counter person can't help you. We love it here. They have upgraded the rooms and they are a lot nicer. It is a perfect vacation spot for families or just a couple. Walking distance to town and the beach is just down the stairs. Get in shape!! The walk back up the stairs will kill you if you are not in shape. We take our own food and cook it there. They have Bar B Q's and Microwaves. Nice picnic area looking at the ocean. Lights at nite so you can see if you want to be out there past dark. They also have nice heaters outside and a couple of fire places to sit around. Breakfast in the morning is ok.. Saves you money on Breakfast. ;) I would say go... Fun place, Nice big hot tubs. Enjoy

Terrific stay! Beautiful location, clean rooms, stunning view, perfect weather, and a few noisy kids in the pool at 7:30 am. I would definitely come back.

The pictures on the SeaCrest Hotel website tell the truth: it is on a dramatic bluff overlooking the Pacific, it has a large outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzis framed by towering palm trees, and the patio seating has gas heaters and cozy fire pits with views of the ocean. I recommend taking advantage of all of it – no resort fee required! There’s also no fitness center, spa or concierge, but that’s why the stunning setting is reasonably priced.

Our room was stylish and large enough to accommodate our belongings plus two dogs and their crates. Yes! The SeaCrest takes pets, and it's always a challenge to find a pet-friendly hotel that's clean, comfortable, with plenty of amenities. Much to our delight, the rooms seemed to be well insulated so that noise was not a problem. Our bed was very comfortable - not too soft and not too hard - just right. All rooms faced the ocean (most at an angle) and had patios or decks.

The included breakfast is simple and convenient, featuring cereal, muffins, waffle-station and hard-boiled eggs. For dinner, we visited a lively, traditional Italian restaurant in downtown Pismo which is a quaint seaside town. It’s a perfect stop when traveling down the CA coastline.

Please note that the stairwell down to the beach is not suitable for small children or anyone who isn't in good condition; the risers are high and irregular, and the wooden steps are slippery.

Room Tip: Our room was on the ground floor, but still felt private due to the thick foliage around the patio...
