      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.

      Sunday night we stayed in San Simeon, Ca at a cozy little hotel called The Morgan which just a couple miles away from The Hearst Castle, our next destination. The next day after lunch in the nearby town of Cambria, we headed to the Castlle for a very interesting afternoon.

      William Randolph Hearst was indeed a very interesting and versatile …

      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 …

      ... are fair trade, and a cute cow chalkboard for my kitchen - it was very much my style (not to mention the golden retriever who was in with his owner and got a belly rub from Darrin). Also hit a t-shirt shop and got a nice shirt with a black lab on it because it reminded me of my doggie. Also in Carmel there are all these little alleys leading to hidden courtyards - we only checked out a few, but I really wished we had spent 4 hrs ...

      ... attraction here.

      A little farther north is San Simeon which is not associated with William Randolph Hearst's San Simeon. Nothing of interest in this town unless one seeks lodging close to Hearst Castle.

      William Randolph Hearst built his home which he named "La Questa Encantada" (The Enchanted Hill) because he got too old to camp at his favorite hillside location. Over the years his ranch grew to 250,000 acres including 13 miles ...

      ... and the rain became more of a drizzle. We stopped about 20 times to take photos of the scenery, hundreds of shots of pretty much the same scene, we just can't get enough of it! At one stop, YouTube "sensation" Lonnie Campbell (man who sings with a rabbit on his head) introduced me to his bunny Gandalf and talked to me about fishing whilst Emily hid in the car. We made a hasty retreat. Eventually the road began to straighten and ...
