I had a great experience on my last stay, from check in to check out everyone was very helpful. Erica at the front desk was so sweet and just made my trip. The views were stunning and the rooms were great. I will refer you guys to all my friends headed to pismo!!

Room Tip: Bottom Floor is great for pool and beach access

I had to take a cold shower. The water didn't warm up till after I was done with my shower. Sure was not worth the money they were asking. I think they were over price and they would not accept military discount because they said it's seasonal. I don't remember soldiers only serve for our country only during certain seasons.

On behalf of the entire management and staff of the SeaCrest, we thank you for your service to our country. We do not offer a specific military discount, but there are discounts available for many dates throughout the year. A sure way to get firsthand information on upcoming discounts, is to like us on Facebook. Hopefully, you gave your email address to the staff, if so, we will add you to our Wacky Wednesday promotions with great rates throughout the year. Also check out our "Life Happens™" Advance Purchase rates. This is our peak season, most nights are sold out, but there can still be opportunities during the weekday dates for reduced rates, even this season. Please visit us again and this time, contact our hotel general manager directly, he will do his best to secure you an accommodation you will be very happy with. Yes the "cold shower" is a bane of every hotel's existence, it rarely happens, but when the hotel is crowded and too many guests are showering at the exact same time, somebody may momentarily wait for hot water. Our apologies to you.

Don't let the brochure pictures fool you! Just arrived, 2 rooms both smell of stale smoke and damp. Pool tiny, with water so cloudy you can not see the bottom. If you want a drink you have to go to your room. Order it there, wait for delivery, then take outside.... How stupid is that, no bar but they do offer free coffee, well they would if they bothered filling them. Thanm God we are only here one night. Staff are pleasant but how it has such a high rating suggests management paid people they know and not real guests.

On behalf of the management and staff of the SeaCrest ,we apologize for your stay being anything less than the superior experience we expect for our guests. However, our website pictures are an extremely accurate representation of our hotel and grounds. Please also see the hundreds of pictures taken by our completely satisfied guests recently, over 1000 on TripAdvisor alone. Our hotel is 100% non-smoking and we take great care to assure our guests comply with this policy, to the point of examining each room after guests' check out, to make sure they are is no stale odor. Guests who violate are then charged a cleaning fee. Thank you for mentioning a cloudy pool; we did immediately examine the chemical levels and determined they were correct and the pool was, in fact, clear. As far as the hotel not having a bar or poolside drink service, true, and we have never advertised such a service. Nor, by the way, does any other hotel along our section of the Pismo Bluffs. However as you pointed out, we do have Thirst Aid (only hotel here providing such a service), available only to our guests. So once your drinks are delivered to your room, confirming you are indeed a guest, you're free to carry the beverages anywhere on the property grounds. Please allow us to serve you again, we will demonstrate the superior level of service and accommodations that match our reputation.

On our roadtrip from LAX to San Francisco, our first stop was at the SeaCrest Oceanfront.
We had a great room with direct view over the pacific ocean. The room had everything we needed and there was planty of room.
The hotel offers very much such as a free breakfast near the lobby every morning as well as 3 pools which are all heated. The direct access to the public beach is directly in front of the hotel and if the hotel pool is to warm for you, you are within a minute in the ocean!
The hotels WiFi was free but didn't work very well inroom. we had to go near the lobby for getting perfect access!

Room Tip: Buy a bit more for a Deluxe OceanFront Room! Don't miss Winesday every Wednesday evening on the Hotel Terrace!

We were traveling to Los Angeles and planned on staying at Sea Crest on Father's Day,
June 15. When I attempted to check in, I found out that my reservation was for the following Sunday, June 22. We had our two chihuahuas with us and there weren't any "pet friendly" rooms available. The wonderful young lady at the front desk, and the Manager, were able to secure us a room with an ocean view for the night. They made an exception and accommodated us with our little boys/chihuahuas. I think that level of attention and service is worth writing about!!
