Not happy with the Hotel, when I checked in, I called for an Ocean View, and willing to pay for Upgrade. The agent circled our room on the brochure, we are in the middle of Hotel but we got put in on the back end. The coffee maker is broken, leaking faucet and a bad shower head. I lived in... More

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

Well, you definitely didn't have to take a tornado to get here. What amazing things you have to say about our hotel, ThebazileP. Sometimes you have to look from someone else's perspective to really admire what you have and wow, you really talked about everything!
