Was looking for a 2-3 day trip from bay area while my daughter was on spring break. Looked at napa, Monterey, sf, etc. finally decided we could go visit my son at Cal Poly, have some sun, ocean and massage time all at one place. This is an older.place, which just means it has primo real estate! Has been totally updated, rooms are nice, balconies overlooking ocean, 3 hot tubs, firepits, beach access, etc.

It has been a few years since I have been to the central coast and was so impressed by the remodel the Sea Crest has done. Very welcoming and comfortable, excellent job. Love the new tented entrance, the cookies in the afternoon, fresh coffee in the morning, and the rooms were wonderfully decorated and clean. Can't wait for my next visit back to the coast! Highly recommend this location.

Overnight getaway with husband last Friday. I know that this hotel has had mixed reviews, but wanted to try it since it was oceanfront. Most rooms do face the ocean and it is a beautiful view. Can walk down paths to the ocean. However, this is the nosiest hotel I have ever been in. They placed us in a 2nd floor room close to the lobby. People out till 11pm using pool, jacuzzi and tables outside our door. In the morning, lobby area was packed and loud with people eating and talking beginning at 7am. Could not sit outside on balcony due to the looky lous even if we wanted to. Could not have drinks outside or leave door open to hear ocean due to the proximity of lobby. Ask for a room near the sides (same view). Thermostat did not work and bathtub drain did not work. When I complained, they gave me a $30 coupon off the "next visit"...as if. There are lots of nice ocean view/front hotels in Pismo. Won't be back to this one.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the sides of the u-shaped configuration. DO NOT get a middle room if you want any...

The SeaCrest hotel was very modern and cozy. The access to Pismo Beach was very convenient and provided great picture opportunities. The staff were very helpful and catered to our every need. (They even lit the fireplace for us, we didn't even ask!) The hotel is a short distance from the Outlets, boardwalk, and downtown. The hotel also offered continental breakfast, but there wasn't much food choice.
Our rooms were a little pricey but we had a beautiful view, comfortable beds, a clean bath/shower, a Keurig coffee maker, and a flat screen TV. The sleep quality was OK due to the loud noise of footsteps on the floor above us. Our floor had a terrace that provided us with a place to sit while looking over the ocean.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay here. In my opinion, I hope to come again! :)

Room Tip: Get a room facing the pool or ocean on a high floor for great views. ;)
