Very close to the beach. The complex is well maintained. Welcoming staff. Our room was clean. We really liked the inside patio with benches, picnic tables lawn, bonfire ring and lots of toys for kids.

I found this little hotel on Trip Advisor. It looked like a great place to stay for our old car group while on our way to Canada. It was close to downtown Seaside (just a block or so) and you can walk to shopping and restaurants. This is a family owned hotel and Ruth was so nice to work with... More

We are staying here two nights (basically the same price to stay here two nights as one night elsewhere). They are exceeding our expectations. Jacuzzi tub is great. Arrived to an ice bucket with sparkling cider, and returned to our room on day #2, with a cute wrapped bath bomb next to the jacuzzi tub. Very sweet touches and thought... More

We arrived in Seaside late in the evening with no reservations and were lucky enough to find a room here. Most places were full or very expensive. Hillcrest met our needs perfectly. We had a very small room with one bed and it was fine. The bathroom was one of the smallest I've ever seen but had all the necessary... More

Seaside is a great beach town. But what made our visit truly special, and what gives this 5 stars, were the people who own/run the Hillcrest Inn.
