          Our Summer Tradition


          Since the early days of annual Band Reviews, the Sea Crest has been our choice for the beach! It has now become our traditional "summer place" to re-connect and enjoy the summer times together!

          It'll do for a night


          We stayed at Sea Crest in mid April to break up our trip from SF to SD. The desk staff leave a bit to be desired - I'm sorry but being told at 2pm that your room isn't ready, come back later just isn't good enough. We weren't offered to use the facilities or given any alternative - just go away and come back in an hour. Especially disappointing when no paperwork mentions book in time.

          We chose an ocean front room and were given top floor which had magnificent views. The room was a great size with two double beds and sitting area as well as a private balcony. It was looking a bit shabby - definitely a cheap family 'use and abuse' type room - but served a purpose for our night's stay.

          The pool area was ok - lots of kids, and I mean LOTS. There was an adults only spa which was almost at boiling point.

          If you're after a cheap family holiday then this is the place to go. If you're expecting a bit better, go elsewhere.

          Think Nice Motel 6 with Outstanding View


          My family and I have stayed at this hotel every year for the last 10

          years. I think the hotel is a very good value for what you get. Think

          Motel 6 with a great view of the ocean. I think the grounds and

          building could use a makeover though. I have never found the staff to

          be either very courteous nor rude. No complaints about them but

          honestly I'm not there because of the staff or the hotel but were there

          because its beautiful and you get a decent room for a reasonable price.

          We reserve a family suite on the first floor which gives you two rooms

          and two televisions (important when you have kids). A large grassy area

          is right out your back slider and convenient for watching sunsets. A

          long stairway down the bluff takes you to the a wonderful beach. I

          would definitely recommend it but next year I think we will upgrade.

          Great view, mundane decor


          Spectacular view, great location, dated furnishings (old TV remote bracket still bolted to nite table?), average bed, uncomfortable pillows (thin), only two bath towels (in "executive suite"?

          please!)....but the view *is* spectacular.



          We decided late in the afternoon to spend the night rather than make the drive so late. My daughter was staying at the Sea Crest so we asked if they had any rooms available. They had one on the 1st floor. It would have been nice if they would have told us it was right next to the housekeeping headquarters. The employees were very loud starting at 8:00 a.m. It was more than just annoying. It wasn't just that they woke us up, but that the loud voices continued for about 2 hours. My daughter loved her room. Just make sure you aren't on the 1st floor.

          Nice place, not accommodating


          Nice place to stay. The owners are neither helpful or accommodating.

          They treated myself and family poorly. We had requested 15 rooms close to each other over a year in advance for a family reunion and ended up spread all over the complex. If they cared even a little bit it could have happened. They'll never see us again.

          Great view of ocean from balcony


          Loved staying in this place. HOT pool was great

          Favorite Hotel


          This is a wonderful place to come and enjoy Pismo Beach...we usually arrive Sun. after church and stay Monday and is our get-away to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and happy staff!

          Great hotel!


          I love this hotel! Just steps away from the beach and a walking distance to downtown, The Sea Crest has a great location. The rooms are very well maintained and clean. The pool is always SO warm. If the ocean is cold, I can just live in the pool the whole day. It is SO well heated. This hotel has everything done perfect and I highly recommend it!



          The sea crest is the best place to stay while your in Pismo. :) I wouldnt reccomened anywhere else.

          To be honest there isn't a great deal we can tell you about Pismo Beach. We rocked up pretty late from Monterey that evening & we were out by 7:00am the next morning. We did get the opportunity to spin around the main strip & find ourselves a fabulous little Italian, but that aside there's little we can say sadly. We had spent far too much …

          Its a gorgeous day today, no a cloud in the sky, warm and you can hear the sound of the sea from the room, it's too much for us, so O&J and I go to the pool at 7.30 for a swim, it's being cleaned so we have to avoid the pressure washer, but that is fine.

          ... Found the neatest thing ever! Seals! Wild seals just make themselves at home on the rocks below the piers and along the oceanfront. So, we ordered lunch at a outdoor restaurant and had the best view ever, ships, waves, birds, and seals. Wow, still can't believe I am actually here in California!

Our destination, Ragged Point, is located only a few miles from the flatlands. If one continues on this remote and beautiful mountainous path Big Sur and Monterrey can be reached in about 1.5 hours.

          110 unique rooms now exist, each decorated differently to suit many individual tastes...rock rooms, waterfall showers, rock fireplaces, european fixtures and fine furnishings to name a few...there are even waterfall urinals in the mens toilets (we didnt check these out though!!)
