This hotel is perfectly located about a mile from the Pismo Beach pier and easy walking distance to downtown via the beach. They offer continental breakfast which is quite substantial (more than just fruit, toast, and coffee). The service is nice and the views are breathtaking. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and the grounds are kept very... More

Stayed here on spring break with the family. As mentioned in the other reviews the grounds are great with plenty of seating, fireplaces, a pool and three hot tubs. Excellent views from the bluff top location. We were upgraded to one of the suites, which had a king bed in the main room and two twins in an adjoining room.... More

My family of four stayed here for two nights. Nice room and updated. Great view of beach on balcony. The hotel had nice gas grills for guests to use. Many families used them. Small pool and two hot tubes. Outdoor heaters were nice to use at night on the couches. Bring s'more fixings for the family. Lots of stairs to... More

Loved our stay! Staff are super friendly, rooms clean and nice. View and amenities are awesome. GREAT place if you are with a few families...large outdoor seating areas with tables and fire pits. Easy access to beach, and we walked down to pier for lunch. Will stay here again for sure!

This hotel has a very nice bluff location, with excellent ocean views from most of the rooms. Some of the deluxe rooms overlook the surf below. There is a nicely landscaped lawn area all around the pool and patio terrace areas which have gas fire pits. It is quiet (except for the sound of the ocean surf!). They offer free... More

It's a lucky spot we have on the bluff and we love hearing the sound of the ocean too! We are glad you were able to walk into town and enjoy the beautiful city of Pismo Beach. It's nice to hear you enjoyed so many of our amenities that we offer despite the small bit of rain that we had.... More

We had one of our best stays on this California road trip at the SeaCrest. It offers great value for the money. The rooms with the coastal view made watching the sunset easy and peaceful. We had pizza up on the south tower patio with the propane torches and the propane fire place to keep us warm. The kids loved... More

Will never go back again, even if it is the only hotel that's supposedly decent available. Hated the bed!! Got no sleep because of all the lumps :( Only nice thing I can say is it does have a nice view, but so do many other places in pismo... I do not recommend staying here if you can avoid it.

Huge room with comfortable beds and an amazing view. Pool and hot tubs with views of the ocean and really good breakfast included at a super cheap price. Not overcrowded and staff were friendly - even gave us a bottle opener so we could drink wine in our room. I would recommend to anyone!

I can not say how amazed I was about how nice Seacrest OceanFront Hotel turned out to be. The staff, from Aspen checking us in; the kind maintenance man getting us more towels in the pool area; sweet house keeper telling us to have a great day; and finally, Danielle checking us out. They were all so nice and polite... More
