“What a location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Our first thought when we arrived at the Seacrest was of excitement. The sea view room that we had was AMAZING. Just couldn't get over how amazing that view was. The hotel itself is quiet basic. In saying quiet basic, I refer to the facilities onsite. That is by no means a bad thing, it has everything that you need, but with no frills. The only thing we were missing was a bar ! But the staff did say that they could bring wine or beer to our rooms if we called for room service. Was decided to go to the local off licence and have a little beach party. The night porter also brought all the ladies in our group a nice warm blanket to keep us warm while we relaxed in Pismo Beach!

My family and I visit Pismo several times a year. We almost always stay at the Seacrest as long as there is vacancy. Every room is worth the price. Beautiful views, wonderful staff, beautifully updated rooms, very clean, and awesome amenities. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone I know. We can't wait to come back this month!

I travel to San Luis Obispo from LA every week for work and stay at the Seacrest Oceanfront Hotel. This is my 8th week, and my stay is a consecutive 12 nights. When I checked in, I was given a room that wouldn't be ideal for a long stay. I came back to the front desk to speak with Jacob and another gentleman who worked Sunday night. They both hacked away at their computers to find me a room that would be work for all 12 nights without having to move me in the middle of my stay!

Each week after a long drive it's a pleasure to check-in with the front desk staff. They are always fast and helpful. From someone who travels 260 days out of the year, I would certainly recommend this hotel for business or leisure.

Room Tip: The AC units are loud in all the rooms so if you're a light sleeper you may want to ask the staf...

This was a 4 day getaway to celebrate my husband's birthday... Unfortunately, it was cold and raining the whole time... however... The very friendly hotel staff did all they could to make us comfortable (freshly baked hot cookies in the lobby every afternoon, etc., etc)... and we had a wonderful time, despite the weather... We love that it's pet-friendly too... Our room was quiet, nicely decorated, and had direct access to the grassy area for our doggies... We will definitely be back!!!

I think Pismo Beach is a lovely spot on the Pacific and an easy drive from both San Francisco and LA area. It's the oldest hotel in they city - according to the maintenance guy - here since 1962 but has been completely retrofitted. Rooms are great with fridge and microwave and they all seem to have a patio or balcony - many looking to the Pacific. The rooms are big too with free water. Included breakfast. Lots of restaurants and bars close by and an outlet mall. Going through on a quick business trip but would love longer!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms facing into the pool area go straight out onto the lawn and the ocean is just bey...

We arrived late in the evening and I was pleasantly greeted by the desk clerk. He got me a room (with a king bed) in short order, provided me information on the weather. We got into the room, and I was pleasantly surprised. The decorating was awesome, love the orange and brown, very welcoming and love that both sides of the bed had electrical outlets for charging phones, ipods.

The continental breakfast was great, simple, but everything was stocked. The apples and banana's were yummy.

Only con, our thermostat was broken so it was either a sauna or freezing, but it appeared to be mechanical and they offered some dollars off our stay.

I have stayed in this hotel during the kids winter break. The hotel is quite modern, great quiet rooms (did not hear any of our neighbors). The kids could not decide between the beach, which there is direct access, the pool or the jacuzzi. One of the only times that the kids wanted to stay and not return home.
The breakfast is ok but crowded. Only hiccup, small one, is that our room was not ready when we arrived and the receptionist took my number to call us as soon as it is ready. That call never happened but when we did return to the hotel the room was ready.
