SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location is great. You have access to the beach and it’s an easy walk to town. The hotel was decorated very well! The coffee and tea they have in the lobby is great for chilly nights or the morning wake up. The room was nice and spacious. The bed was very comfortable! I really enjoyed my time at the Seacrest!!

They are remodeling so the reception area is very small. The breakfast area was very small and crowded . Since they are remodeling they should have opened up a bigger area for their guests or offered something extra to make up for the inconvenience

We did not get the room we asked for (double queen), so our daughter had to sleep on a pull out couch.

Always a favorite. Gorgeous view, firepits, beautiful pool area. On a bluff with beach access.

The hotel was under construction, the hot tub water was dirty, the breakfast was very weak and the location was ghetto.

Nice friendly staff the rooms and the views were amazing definitely will stay here again

We did not like not to be informed that construction was going on. Prefer hotel where construction is not happening. Disappointed that orbitz does not provide that information. For the same price we could have a hotel where construction is not active.

Great location, property and view. New mattresses were being delivered during our stay but the only upgrade needed is new carpets, which feel old.

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.

Great location, property and view. New mattresses were being delivered during our stay but the only upgrade needed is new carpets, which feel old.
