Wonderful ocean front stay on Pismo Beach. Friendly staff with lots to do and see in this complex. Great ocean front rooms with patios/balconies. Nice decks to enjoy the outside with firepits. Plenty of lounges around pool. Need more time the next time we visit the central coast of California.

We stopped over one night heading south to Santa Barbara , people are right to say it's a motel but if you want decent accommodation at the right money you can't go wrong here. We were given an ocean view room and we had a great vista off our balcony. We walked along the beach to the Main Street and... More

We are currently staying in this hotel for one night whilst travelling down Highway 1 en route to San Diego. Having just completed the longest drive of our trip we were hoping to check into an upmarket full service hotel, sadly this hotel is not much more than a glorified Motel with limited facilities on site. Upon entering our room... More

LouBLou_67, I sincerely apologize about the confusion and expectations created regarding our hotel. However, we do not claim to be “an upmarket full service hotel.” The SeaCrest is an individually owned, family-friendly, and retro-chic hotel, keeping with Pismo Beach’s “Classic California” slogan. It is true that we do not have a bar or restaurant on site, but have in the... More

Our cat Munch very much enjoyed this place as our stopping point to the central valley from southern California. Small town, easy access to everything, even delivery sushi! Good service at the front desk and they even gave us some extra time at check-out. Awesome little hidden spots around the property to get away from everyone for a little bit.... More

It is pleasing to hear you and Munch had an enjoyable pit-stop! We love hearing about our guests discovering our hidden gems on property. Although its fun to meet other guests, we understand that sometimes you just need some quite "me" time. We would like to clarify some information in response to your comment about the "balcony" area and your... More

Nice Ocean views but that where it stops. Bath towels are worn, no robes provided to go out to the hot tub, (its cold at night) coffee maker not working. Wouldn’t mind but at $300++ per night this is unforgivable. When I called the desk to find out if they just forgot to leave a robe in my room they... More

Michael, Thank you for taking the time to provide such feedback about your stay with us. I am truly sorry you encountered an unpleasant experience with one of our guest service agents. It is unacceptable for our staff members to treat our guests impolitely and the situation will certainly be addressed. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest... More

Picture this: A long drive and it's hot. We arrive at a place never before visited by us. We get our room... Take the elevator up to the fourth floor.

The views from the Ocean Front room are amazing. The hotel is well maintained and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Lot of variety for breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend staying at the Oceanfront room in this hotel.

Lovely location, nice hotel, comfortable beds with quilts. We had a side sea view room. Hotel is really nicely looked after. Lots of comfy seats outdoors with heaters. You can sit out and watch the sunset, have breakfast (complimentary continental). The beach is down the steps. Lovely to walk on especially at low tide. About 15 minutes walk to the... More

We stayed here for a couple nights. Clean rooms, nice view, close to downtown. Two things we didn't really like were...they first put us in the south tower over looking the smokers designated area. We asked to have our rooms changed and they were very accomodating. Second issue was the pets on the property. Too many! But the grounds were... More

Although your first room location wasn't to your pleasing, it is good to know our staff was accommodating and able to move you. We are a pet friendly hotel and adore our furry friends. The city...
