“Fabulous romantic getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Beautiful views, spot on service, and private hot tub on the deck was perfect even in December! Both hotel restaurant and bar were excellent and staff both knowledgeable and friendly. Loved all the local wine on the menus, and provided in the rooms.

We were staying here for a family reunion. I had called in advance to make the reservation and talked with the Manager Meghan Hamill. I had a few questions about handicap rooms, due to my mothers mobility issues. She had us set in the handicap room with walk out of the room and onto the beach access. Check in was quick and easy. We got to the room and there was already a shower bench in the bathroom. Talk about details. At check I had asked if there where only real glasses in the room, yes they are real glass. Oops not good with a 4 year old, so they gave me a stack of plastic cups. Made my life a bit easier. The room was wonderful. Huge patio, private hot tub on the 2nd patio. Couch bed that fit 2 people just fine. Ask for an extra feather bed for better comfort. My 72 year old mother slept very well on it. The Staff~ so friendly. Heidi and Brittany were smiles and hellos every time we walked in. They would ask if every thing was fine, how is your stay, how was your day ect and mean it. Did not feel like it was just part of the job, they really wanted to know. Would I stay here again? I think I have too, the 4 year old is already making plans to go back to the handicap room where she can go straight to the ocean.

We stayed here on the way up the coast to San Francisco. It's in a great location, with parking included on the nightly resort fee and we were given a voucher for a free bottle of champagne when we checked in. Right on the beach and with a ' holiday feel' in terms of the overall ambience, the rooms are a little dated and we had about 10 pillows on our bed which did seem a bit over the top. However, the deluxe spa room we stayed in was very clean, bathroom very small but manageable, good mini bar ( not extortionate prices) and we made good use of the hot tub which we found worked really well and it was lovely to relax in while looking up at the stars. We'd booked for Thanksgiving Dinner which was lovely and we were in time to watch the sun set over the sea as we ate our meal (which was delicious). Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

My wife and I drove from San Francisco on Hwiy 1 and this was our first night stay. We showed up a little before sunset got checked in quickly and had a drink at the bar to watch the sunset. Check in was easy, my wife loved the room. Up at the bar, outside on the terrace they had music playing. Spectacular view, good drinks and appetizers at reasonable prices. We made use of a lot of what they offered, room service, hot tub, free cruising bikes to go see the butterflies! If I pass through again, I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We were actually glad we didn't have an ocean view room. We had privacy when using our hot tub!

Love the location - right on the beach. Decor is dated - lots of dark colors. We stayed two nights - the jacuzzi on our balcony was kind of lame - none of the jets were working properly. The second night we had to move to another room (which was odd to me) that was also full ocean view. One jet in the jacuzzi was working properly. They have a massage area, which we didn't use. A full restaurant on the third floor - seemed nice but we ate at the Thai place (great) down the street. Overall, friendly staff, beachy feel, totally dated decor but I'd probably go back. Price a bit high - they said the beachfront room was regularly 300+ but they had a special offer of 219/night. Seems expensive for what we got.

Meghan H, Manager at SeaVenture Beach Hotel, responded to this review, December 4, 2012
Thank you for taking the time to review the SeaVenture Resort. It is very unfortunate to read that your jacuzzi wasn't working properly during your stay. This is one of the amenities that stands us apart from other local hotels, so I wish we would have had the opportunity to address it while you were here. We are also in the planning phase of a room decor update, and look forward to a fresh look in our rooms soon! We hope you'll consider staying with us the next time your travels bring you to Pismo Beach.

We had our wedding dinner at the restaurant and spent our wedding night at the hotel, and it all turned out perfectly. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The meal was delicious, and we had a spectacular view of the beach at sunset during our meal. The room was very comfortable, with a hot tub on the balcony and another great vista of the water. We slept with the door open and could hear the ocean through the night. It is the perfect location on the beach and one of the best spots for a hotel in the county. We had breakfast in our room in the morning, then went for a relaxing walk along the beach. The weather was perfect. Our sincerest thanks and deepest gratitude to everyone who helped make this a fantastic weekend for us, on a very special occasion. We look forward to coming back again and reliving the experience. There is so much to do within walking distance of the hotel - shopping, eating, playing. It was a very memorable lodging and dining experience.

Stayed for 5 nights. Perfectly placed within easy reach of town centre but at the quiet end of town.Right on the beach. Stayed in one of the smaller standard rooms which was ideal - not much of a view but Ok. Bed was huge and very comfortable.
Restaurant was excellent and not that expensive considering the quality of the food. Superb views, but would recommend booking in advance to get a window seat. Would definitely stay here again.
