Overall, I liked the property, we had a decent room and our view was better that ocean front in my opinion. what I do take issue with is the "Pet Friendly" aspect of the hotel. There is a very nice grass area between the hotel rooms and the pool / patio. Problem is, pet owners use this area to let... More

Dear Derek D, Thanks for such great feedback regarding your stay. I think I will review the pet zones at the hotel and make some designated areas for that use. We can do our best to monitor, but can’t control all actions. Thanks for the tip and we look forward to your next visit with us! Sincerely, Andrew Jenest Andrew@seacrestpismo.com More

Was in town on biz for a night and 2 days. Live in SoCal, but had never been to Pismo Beach before. The resort has a tremendous spot overlooking the Pacific and sunsets are unbelievable. The staff are really down-to-earth, friendly, and fun people and love working at the resort. The rooms are comfortable and have great furnishings - totally... More

This was our second stay at The Seacrest (after having a good experience last year) and while we did enjoy it again, we were disappointed about my request not being able to be honoured about having a spa room on a higher floor. Our reservation was booked well in advance and I had hoped for the best but I also... More

Dear Selina C, Thanks so much for staying with us again, and I am very sorry we couldn’t accommodate you on a higher floor. The higher rooms do seem a bit more private, especially with the other hotel’s guests utilizing our exclusive beach access. Thanks so much for sharing some of the nice things you said about the hotel, and... More

Spending one night here on a trip to Pismo. Nice and clean, really friendly and helpful staff and Gosh, what a beautiful view! Nice stairway down to the beach. Keurig coffee in the room. Nice pool and spa area as well as fire pits. Will definately come back next time we're in the area.

We were doing the Highway 1 Pacific Ocean drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles so we stayed 1 night at this amazing hotel. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the place and area. The room was spacious and clean with a complementary water and coffee machine. The breakfast area is small but the place and weather makes it fantastic.... More

This is a really nice hotel with a great view and beach access! The only reason I gave it a 4 for cleanliness was because there were a couple of Cheerios under my table and my cousins room had a cork in between the refrigerator and dresser - could sweep up a little better. Value was marked down because we... More

This is the 5th time we have stayed at this resort. Every other visit we have stayed in an Oceanview Deluxe King Room in one of the towers. However for this stay those rooms were booked. We were traveling with children and decided to book the family suite. The family suite is not so family oriented. First the the room... More

Dear Michelle R, Plain and simple, we should have been able to accommodate you better, especially with respect to the plumbing challenges and satisfactory service. Some of the very basic hotel stay requirements are clean towels, and a working shower drain. I am very sorry for the challenges you encountered both with the room and lack of service/effort by the...

After a spectacular day on PCH I had promised my family a relaxing Christmas evening oceanfront cookout at a really nice hotel...everyone was skeptical . I was a bit nervous but when we arrived I was delighted to find the photos on the website did not even come close to showing how lovely this hotel really is. The friendly staff... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location, right on the cliffs overlooking a lovely stretch of sandy beach. The hotel has a compact lobby that, when we checked in, was quite crowded. There did not seem to be enough staff to cope with the number of people checking in, which was disappointing. There are a lot of outdoor areas on... More
