SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We booked three nights and added one more. Hotel is on a cliff overlooking Pismo Beach---location is great with fabulous views. Hotel grounds were well kept. The beach was wide and very flat with gentle surf. The hotel had a good stairway to the beach but it should be noted that it is at least 100 steps. The hotel does not have beach chairs or umbrellas available to borrow or rent---had to buy these. The breakfast is nothing to brag about at all. From the beach we saw whales, dolphins and a sea otter.

Extremely hot day when we checked in. Great staff and nice hotel. A couple of things that caused me to rate a little lower. There was no ice machine on our floor. We had to go down a floor to get ice. Additionally the hallways were cooled with 2 small AC units at the far ends of the halls and they were not set properly causing the halls to be extremely hot

Nice stay, beautiful view, and great location! Enjoyed walking to all the shops, beach, and restaurants!

Lovely sunsets. Clean room and helpful staff. The heating/AC unit wasn't working properly in our room and when we notified the staff we were amazed at their prompt response. Within 15 minutes we had someone come and fix the problem. Nice offerings for breakfast with a great view.

Easter weekend and the location was great. Room was clean and updated. Broken hair dryer was replaced immediately when we called. The grounds were groomed and taken care of. Loved the view and the balcony, and we liked being on the top floor. And to top it off, really nice breakfast spread that was nice to walk down to in the early morning.

Our room was not big but comfortable, on the third floor with a magnificent view. Continental breakfast was very good.

the three person king room did not have an extra bed, but the view and location are spectacular. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff is very accommodating. The room is clean, and there is ample parking.

Great hotel, very clean. Our room had a frig and microwave. Beautiful ocean view and beach access. Friendly staff. Tables outside with gas fire. The only.. complaint is the bed was very hard. Other than that,we loved the hotel, location.

Last hotel on our coast trip. Traveling with a dog. Wow, perfect views and very pet friendly. Close to wonderful food. Should have just went here for the entire vacation.

We go to Pismo several times a year and have stayed in many hotels and inns but Seacrest is by far our favorite. The views and grounds cannot be beat and the staff are all wonderful.

We stayed for a night on a beautiful December weekend. Due to the temps, not many people were in the pool or the 2 hot tubs. A few kids were running around, but a fairly quiet property that weekend. The skies were clear so a couple families were using the BBQ grill. We didn't use the grill, but sat by the fire pits under the lights to enjoy the cool evening. The rooftop terrace on the South building (under construction until Feb 2017) was a lovely quiet location with 2 small fire pits and outdoor patio furniture. We visited in the morning after breakfast and the view is gorgeous! We had a main building, ocean view room. The room was a reasonable size with enough room to move around in and not run into the furniture. The bathroom was quite large - the spa shower is spacious! The in-room mini fridge was useful for keeping drinks cold. Keurig coffee machine plus free bottles of water above the microwave. Breakfast was quite reasonable, though not very many hot items. Danishes, muffins, scones, cereal, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, juices, hot coffee, oatmeal and fruits. It was our first time staying in Pismo Beach (we generally stay in Santa Maria). We loved our stay. It was about 15-2 min walk to the pier.

Hotel with a great viewing to the ocean. Room is small but comfortable. Restaurants and shopping are near. What better way to sleep than listening to the waves crashing.

Good location even for ocean front hotels. Friendly staff, good for a day for two stay.

Most of this hotel was great. Nice location and facilities. The staff was fine. The room we had was on the top floor at the end. There was a loud and constant low vibration in the room. It sounded like a helicopter was hovering outside. The hotel was packed on this weekend so we didn't ask to be moved. This noise was pretty bad though. I may be more sensitive to this than others. Still, my wife noticed it too and was bothered by it. Not relaxing in our room!

Good breakfast lots of variety nice ocean views beach access nice spa and pool

This is a perfect location of you want to literally want to be steps from the beach. They also have a pool, hot tub and an area to bbq.

Nice Staff really made a wonderful experience, will return in the future.

Nice place, beautiful beach views. Great continental breakfast! The housekeepers were somewhat loud! I could hear them talking to one another as they would go from room to room to clean and this went on for many hours at least 4. That was the only negative!

We will stay here again, kids loved it! Heated pool and free breakfast were plus we came to appreciate!

Please accept our apologies for the miscommunication about accommodations in our king rooms. We've updated our room descriptions as additional bedding is not supported as part of our safety and hotel policy. We are delighted you enjoyed the views and our little beach town of Pismo! Thank you for the review and we hope to see you again.
