I should have read the previous Trip Advisor reviews. Got to the hotel a 1:15pm even though ck.in.was after 4pm, to be sure they had followed up on our request to not be anywhere's near the "pet building" as we are both allergic. Young college age teen (Ashley)said yes we were given a room in the "north" building. But our... More

I love visiting Pismo and I always stay at SeaCrest. Normally my experience at the hotel is great; however, this time it was not. This vacation was celebrating my birthday. After a three hour car trip, I couldn't wait to check into our room. I arrived slightly early to check in and was not greeted with the usual high level... More

I was really happy with this hotel. We booked a deluxe signature room (310) , which was a corner room with a fantastic view. It was nicely appointed with a microwave and large refrigerator that you could fill up with what ever you needed. The shower was awesome with great water pressure and massaging jets. Pool is really warm and... More

My husband and I were there for our one year anniversary. It was very scenic and romantic and lovely but I guess we just picked the wrong time to go. There were many families so I heard lots of screaming kids when I just wanted to wake up to the sound of the ocean, and we were there 2 days... More

A friend and I stayed there for two night as a "getaway" from husbands and kids. Overall it was pretty nice. The hotel is nothing spectacular, you are paying for the location. The bed and linens were sub-par. But it was defiinitely clean and the location and view is great. I would stay there again....EXCEPT.... I left two pairs of... More

I got married this last weekend 8/16/14. I picked this hotel because this was essentially my honeymoon, so we splurged and reserved the spa room. Our ceremony was down on the beach access. When my husband to be went to check in to start setting everything up, he was informed that they had "over-booked" and that we were going to... More

Checkin was fantastic. Jacob worked with us and exceeded expectations on getting us a fantastic room. Perfect for families with ocean access, pool, and a nice breakfast included. Dave also did a great job getting us an extra bed setup. His attitude could not have been more pleasant.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the location was amAzing..... We however got a room in the main building which felt like a dungeon! Although well equipped and staff helpful we felt trapped and dark in the room. Outside was a different story, easy access to the beach which is pretty quiet and a nice walk to the town... More
