“Beautiful little escape just off the Pacific Coast Highway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We will be returning to the Seacrest on our next vacation to California. From the moment we arrived until our checkout, we were shown the best service, the utmost courtesy and above all we noted that the hotel employs some of the friendliest people in California. We upgraded to a seaview room and for the few extra dollars we spent, we were not disappointed. Our view was breathtaking and the sound of the waves on the shore lulled us to sleep at night. The rooms were equipped with refrigerators and microwaves and we were told we could get microwaveable popcorn at the front desk. Fresh cookies and coffee were also available at the front desk - what a nice touch! There was an outdoor pool and the beach was just a few steps down a staircase away. There were bbqs for guest use and gas heaters were available wherever there were chairs and couches including on the rooftop terrace. Parking was ample and it was free. The Front Desk Clerk spent over half an hour trying to program the scenic ocean drive into the navigation system we had bought in California and although he too was unsuccessful, we certainly appreciated his efforts. At the end, he printed us good old fashioned instructions which took us along the scenic coastal highway to San Francisco. Overall, it was a lovely and relaxing experience and we wished we had been able to spend more time there. It's certain that we'll be back again one day in the future!

The SeaCrest Oceanfront hotel is a perfect spot to at whether it's hot or cold. The rooms are very modern and clean, beds are comfortable. The view is fabulous overlooking the ocean! Nice pool and 3 hot tubs!!!! Had a wonderful time bbqing under the warm gas fires! The staff is so very friendly, offering us blankets to have by the fire because it was so cold! The room was ready for early check in and we got to have late check out!!!! You must bring things to bbq ~ it was really fun for everyone! Nice and close to the beach but not too close to all the craziness of Pismo! Nice and quiet!! Very lovely ~ will definately be back to stay!!!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room on the first level by the pool so we could go back and forward easily to the poo...

What pleasant staff this hotel has. They were so busy checking many guests in but still made time for everyone and were so warm and inviting. We hadn't paid extra for an ocean view but once you were out on the balcony you could see and hear the gorgeous Pacific Ocean. Wow! The whole suite was beautiful. We really wished we had planned to stay here longer and yearn to return. The pool area, gardens and grounds were immaculate and being able to walk along the beach was fantastic. The breakfast was ample and varied and being able to sit out on the patio even though it was shady was pleasant because of the heaters. Check out was sweet and simple, staff always with a smile. Thanks Seacrest. See you again hopefully.

Room Tip: Second floor (or above) south wing and you should be able to see the Ocean!

The Sea Crest is an awesome hotel. The pools and hot tubs are as good the pictures. The room I stayed in was super clean and updated with a modern west cast beach look. I loved it. after flying in from Wisconsin and having to drive 5 hours to get to Pismo Beach the bed was very welcomed. The mattress was awesome, and provided a great nights sleep. I think is the best hotel mattress I've ever slept in.

The views from the hotel are outstanding. They are on the plateau above the ocean with views of the public pier. There are steps to get down to the beach which are are owened and maintained by the the city. The steps are steep, so you have to be careful.

The breakfast was good, with all the basics. The coffee was great too. I was disappointed that I didn't pick a room with a view, that would have been a nice treat. The grounds are spectacular and very clean.

I didn't have time to see the fitness center so I cant comment on it.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who like a quality top rate hotel. Coming from the midwest, the Seacrest was a real treat.

Room Tip: Second floor balcony view would be awesome!

We have stayed at many other hotels in Pismo over the years. We will be returning to the SeaCrest from now on. From the moment we checked in with the very friendly and enthusiastic front desk staff, we were happy we had booked here. The room was ready a little ahead of time, and we were pleased to see how spacious and elegant it was. The louvered sliding door to the balcony allowed us plenty of privacy, while we still felt connected to the beautiful setting. Having a Keurig coffeemaker was a very nice touch, and we were able to get few more coffee pods from the cleaning staff so we could laze around in the morning in our room before heading to breakfast. The bed was SO comfortable, with plenty of pillows and nice linens.

We had an excellent ocean front suite with a wonderful view of the beach and the rocky shore.
We fell asleep to the sound of the waves. The room was nicely equipped; and had a balcony and seating area. Friendly staff.

i booked an overnight stay at the seacrest for my boyfriend and i in the jacuzzi suite. wow -- what an amazing room!! not only was there a HUUUUUGE jacuzzi in our room...there was a big nook with windows where you can cuddle looking at the stars or watching the waves roll in. unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to go down to the water but i know there is easy access to the sand. everything was clean and the staff was so nice and accommodating. i had requested the top floor with a "romance enhancement" and it came with a bottle of wine, chocolates, and rose petals all over the room. such a great experience and i would definitely go back there for a weekend getaway! thank you seacrest for making my anniversary special :)

Room Tip: room 406 has a jacuzzi in the suite and it's on the very top floor so you don't hear anythin...
