    Historical Traveler Reviews SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel Pismo Beach

    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.

    Coast road from Santa Barbara to Pismo Beach.

    A travel blog entry by marshallrj on Aug 12, 2014

    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 being cleaned so we have to avoid the pressure washer, but that is fine. We experiment at breakfast, by having cereal and croissants in our room instead of buying an …

Having been a good few years they had an awesome catch up and it was so lovely to meet her and her partner Garrett, who had us in MTB kit within minutes and on bikes ready to hit their trails. We went via the Cambria Bike shop where we were very kindly lent some great bikes before joining Chenin’s crew for a ride, after a bit of debate about which tracks to do because of how ...

    ... walk on the peer and there are few people.... so very laid back. We encounter a pelican who wants to make friends, sitting on the bench on the peer. He eyes us and poses for the few of us taking pictures. You can get close enough to pet him and he loves it.

    We finally tear ourselves away and head up the coast. We arrive in Santa Barbara in the late afternoon for some ice cream and to take a tour of the University of California at Santa Barbara where we have had some ...

    The rain stopped at about 7am then it drizzled for a few more hours. My tent location was under heavy foliage and I could pack everything while not getting too wet. As I was not allowed to cycle on the highway, I visited the local police station for a route alternative. One of the officers was an avid cyclist and decided to drive home to get me some proper detailed maps of the region. After a few ...
