SeaCrest is a gem that should not be passed by! It is the ideal hotel along California's central coast for all travelers, and my family and I were once again delighted this past holiday weekend with what an outstanding resort SeaCrest truly is! The hotel staff was warm and welcoming, from the point of my initial reservation over the phone (with "Emily"), to my check-in (taken by "Vincent"), to simply the housekeepers and groundskeepers saying a friendly "Hello." I had requested a room we had stayed in during last year's visit, but was given another in close proximity to my requested room that ultimately better met my family's needs. We were quite happy that this year's room exceeded our expectations! Upon arrival, our room was clean, which, when traveling with two children, is a must! The daily breakfast was kept well stocked and offered a variety of choices, and the grounds were kept in the most immaculate condition. The breathtaking view speaks for itself, and with so many attractions in the surrounding area, SeaCrest is in prime location to make the most out of your vacation while spending minimal time in the car. We drove away, and already couldn't wait to go back! Thank you, SeaCrest, for being so great and enabling my family to create wonderful memories! We'll be back next Labor Day!

Stayed here for a few nights while we drove along the coast. Great location as it's easy access off Highway 101. Had a jacuzzi room with a great view of the ocean. Was clean with fairly updated modern decor; loved the window seat with the bay windows. Staff was very accommodating and cheerful every time we saw them even though there were a lot of people in and out. Was a little noisy with the patio door open but can't be helped with all the folks staying here. A/C worked well and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was OK, pretty typical and always crowded. Seating was mostly on the patio which in the morning was almost cold but they did have heaters going. Nice touch. Great beach area once you negotiated the steep stairs. Lots of interesting rock formations and cliffs below. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with an ocean view and higher floor, definitely worth it.

Very nice hotel - with all the amenities you need.
Had a nice room with an obstructed view of the ocean (this was expected)
Pool was nice and warm as was the hot-tubs
Nice selection for continental breakfast
And the afternoon cookies were an added bonus

My husband & I took a road trip up the coast and stayed here for 2 nights. The accommodations were spacious, and we had a wonderfully comfy bed. We reserved a deluxe oceanfront room, and the view was spectacular. COMPLETELY worth the price! We didn't use any of the amenities, didn't have the free breakfast (Zorro's Cafe & Cantina, about a mile north on Shell Beach, was superb!), but had a lovely, wonderful stay. We will be going again!!

Room Tip: Definitely reserve an oceanfront room for maximum enjoyment and value!

(Note that this review is for an ocean front room.)
The room was wonderful with a large balcony and a superb view of the ocean. (Others were wandering down on the grass below trying to get a view of the whales, taking photos, while we were sitting back relaxed on our balcony with a drink. Really, really nice.
We could access the beach by way of a steep stairway (too steep for little kids and the elderly, in my opinion.) The pool was nice but a bit crowded. There are three jacuzzis, and we had it all to ourselves at one point :-)
Staff was friendly and accommodating.
Breakfast was a bit hairy, because it was very crowded and the staff stood by looking on with a look of dismay. They also removed all the cream pitchers from the coffee bar for no apparent reason.
I would love to stay here again. Only recommendation to management is to train breakfast staff better.

Room Tip: Ocean front well worth the extra $$.
