Staff was very friendly and helpful. View of the ocean is magnificent. Enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi and breakfasts every morning. I was there for a high school churches summer camp and Seacrest accommodated all 100 of us and let us use the patio area overlooking the beach. We were able to bring our own food and serve everyone there. Thank you, Seacrest, for a wonderful experience.

It's clean, the staff is very attentive, it's well located, the rooms in the old wing are spacious and comfortable, it is on the beach (sort of), has nice grounds (small but nice), and generally a good value for a beach front property.
The little buts - It's a tour bus stop. Big groups of people come and hang out for the night and then are gone. So are all the cookies and breakfast. The lack of breakfast is no real sadness as it is pretty marginal and there is no place to sit down to eat it. I can see that the rooms could be noisy if people are partying on the little patio or the lawn. The on the beach is the sort of joke. The beach is down (and back up) about six flights of stairs.
And one morning the pool was empty and nobody at the desk knew why (strange). It took a whole day to refill. And late in the afternoon they stop putting out towels at the pool.
All in all good for what it is and actually very well located.
Not a Ritz Carlton but not a Motel 6 either.

Room Tip: The old wing in the center has good views but don't be in the middle. It is right over the lobby and could be noisy. The old wing does not have an elevator.

This is a superb hotel. The room was comfortable and airy with excellent coffee! In fact, coffee was available at any time from the foyer, along with delicious freshly made cookies - naughty but nice.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the rates were very reasonable. In fact, they were the best rates of any we stayed in whilst in California, and it was probably the nicest. Our room faced the pool and beach which looked very inviting but, unfortunately, we didn't have time to use.

I thoroughly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to return if I ever visit the area again.

Our son was a student at Cal Poly. We have been driving down to visit him over these past 3 years. We ALWAYS stay at Sea Crest. The view is magnificent, as is the staff just great. It is convenient to the college, and a very pleasant walk to the pier. This is a classy place, We just came back from our sons graduation, and were discussing how much we are going to miss this place. As an added bonus, the breakfast (which is included in the cost of the room) is great! It is fresh, healthy, and just perfect for folks who don't want greasy, heavy food that early in the day. Our most sincere thanks to everyone at Sea Crest!

Room Tip: Spend a little more and get a room with a balcony. The views are really amazing and worth every penny!
