We stayed last month in the deluxe king ocean view for our anniversary. The view was breathtaking. The room was spacious, clean, and had all the amenities I wanted (ipod docking station is an absolute plus). The staff were courteous, the free breakfast they provide is very satisfying. The beach is wide, the sand was firm (good for running), and... More

Wow! The upgrades are terrific since our last stay (Dec. '12). Room 439 beautifully appointed. Bedding, bathroom and new bathroom wooden floor, TV, reading/relaxing chair all outstanding. And the view from our balcony of the lush grounds, majestic coastline and ocean added to the enjoyment of our stay. Long walks on the beach below took us to the pier and... More

We only stayed on night but we should have stayed longer. This was a great hotel with easy parking and check-in. Free coffee, tea, cookies in the lobby. They have free continental breakfast in the mornings. It seems the hotel and rooms was recently upgraded. We like they have private access to the beach which was nice. We will probably... More

Got a great last minute deal on this hotel. It was very nice and relaxing. We got an oceanfront room where we were able to drink wine and watch the sun go down! I really liked the spas and the grounds! Very cozy and the fire pits were nice to sit out and listen to the ocean! We will return!

Once again, on our annual vacation to Pismo Beach, we had an excellent experience at the Seacrest. This hotel is awesome. The staff are very friendly and accommodating--a special thank you to Victor at the front desk for his assistance with our reservations. The hotel is so clean including the grounds. We love the gas fire things outside while having... More

I am in the hotel business and I traveled with my girlfriend who is as well. We are both in management at a 5 start 5 diamond resort and spa. I understand that this is not a 5 star hotel but yet I have to say initially my expectations were beat! Yet the one issue that really would question if... More

This old landmark hotel has been remodeled in the last several years. Not everything, but most things. Clean room. Good location. Self Serve breakfast items. Keurig in room. Beach access at the hotel. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in the family suite for one night. We were on the first floor with a gorgeous view of the Pacific! The hotel has a retro cool vibe. The front desk was very accommodating and friendly. We asked for a Pack n Play for the baby and it was delivered. The man who brought it even offered to set... More

Thank you for your kind comments about the SeaCrest's staff. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and your view of the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Ocean is magnificent. Not sure about the body odor, our guests and staff are smell good people. Recently, we had contractors in and out of the lobby doing a bit of improvements. Now that... More

We had a very good experience at the SeaCrest. It's well located in Pismo Beach, a mere 10-15 minute walk from the main pier and 'downtown' area. Obviously an older motel that has been renovated and expanded, they've done a good job of it. Our room was well appointed and nicely decorated - and it had a balcony with a... More

Wow! You really took full advantage of the SeaCrest's location during your stay. You outlined a perfect getaway; walk to the Pismo Beach Pier or to downtown Pismo Beach. You are right, the San Luis Obispo Farmer's Market is quite a bit of fun, worth scheduling a visit to include a Thursday night. Thank you for your review. More

I received a last minute deal here for $132.00 for a Friday night, just my four year old and I. Don't get room 104 it is in a dark corner and the patio is open so some drunk guys decided to get comfy there at 4:00 a.m. But the inside was very nice and extremely clean. The grounds were my... More
