We stayed here for three nights while on a motorcycle trip and just loved the place. We did chose one of the small rooms but it had everything we needed and it was nice. The staff was just wonderful to us, if you needed anything for your stay they would help you out. They have a great location for walking... More

This is a very clean hotel, that has an inviting atmosphere. Our room was a queen, with a large whirlpool tub, and a gas fireplace. We also had coffeemaker, microwave, and fridge. There were plenty of towels, and really nice personal items such as shampoo, conditioner, etc. The bed was quite comfy, and there were extra pillows. Our room was... More

Older place but comfortable and clean with both cottages and rooms. All non-smoking, several pet friendly. Walking distance (two blocks, did not use car for three days) to fun downtown with lots of food, drink and shopping, and just a block off the beach. All very convenient. Don (retired Marine) and Ruth were superb hosts, most helpful, even with library... More

We have stayed at Hillcrest Inn numerous times and have always been pleased. The rooms are well equipped, comfy and clean and the staff go out of their way to be helpful. They even provide free snacks/beverages in the office for your enjoyment.

First off, the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Really lovely couple that went out of their way to make sure we found the room we wanted for the price (which couldn't be beat), and were comfortable. They recommended all the best places to eat and drink in town and were so helpful. The room we chose was... More

I'm so happy I stayed here. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Best hotel I have ever stayed at. The room was awesome, they have DVDs to watch, very close to the beach, and they offer buckets and towels to borrow for the sand. The jet tubs are awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel experience. Thank you... More

Not only did this place have rates competitive with just about anywhere except City Center Motel, but their service and rooms were just top notch! As soon as we checked in we were greeted by the nicest owner you could find - a real conversationalist that cared very much about making our experience as enjoyable as possible. The office had...

I'm a single mom and brought my 3 kids ages 17, 13, and 11 to Seaside for Spring Break weekend 3/28-3/30. I researched all the hotels to find one that was close to both the beach and downtown but wouldn't break my budget. I read the very positive reviews for the Hillcrest and crossed my fingers! Luckily everything I read... More
