“Updated, dog-friendly, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Nice property, nice sized, recently updated room with modern touches and amenities (Flat-screen, wall-mounted TV w/Dish receiver, Keurig coffee maker, iPod-dock alarm). Other amenities include microwave and fridge, ironing board & iron, hair dryer, modern hotel-style A/C-heating unit. We stayed in a ground-floor, dog-friendly room (with dog bowls and small dog bed). Convenient sliding door access to a small, unenclosed patio (2 patio chairs w/small table). (Proved handy for toweling off our Belgian Malinois and entering directly to room without trekking thru the hallways.) Our room on the South edge of the property was listed (and priced) as a "partial view room", but it faced the attractive central common area and pool/jacuzzi, and we could enjoy a nice view of the ocean and a bit of coastline beyond just by looking out our patio door.

Loved the main outdoor terrace area outside the lobby! It was quipped with plenty of chairs, patio tables and umbrellas, plus propane heaters and fire tables -- great for enjoying breakfast outside with our pup outside the main lobby & breakfast room, with great views of the grassy common area, pool, and the beautiful ocean and coastline.

There's a Marie Callendar's that shares the parking lot (and provides room service), but we had no need given the included breakfast set up daily in the breakfast room. Well-stocked with plenty of muffins, pastries, bagels, and waffles (toaster available too), fresh fruits, cereals, hard-boiled eggs, instant oatmeal, juices and yogurt cups. Plenty of packets of jams, cream cheese, honey, butter, etc. too.

Decent brewed coffee available all day; fresh cookies provided every afternoon.

Not aware of any fitness room, but bikes available on property for rent. However, there's a public access path connecting almost all of the adjacent hotel properties, perfect for nice walks -- you can walk Northward all the way to Shell Beach and beyond almost all the way along the bluffs above the ocean. There's also a stairway for direct access down to the beach from this property (although it was closed during our stay for renovation -- but another stairway down to the beach is just a couple blocks away).

Can't think of any complaints -- our stay was even a great bargain (February, so off-season rates, plus we were lucky to take advantage of a 3 nights-for-two special that they were offering). If we can get anywhere close to similar rates, we are definitely coming back - and hopefully on a regular basis...

We coordinated a training camp for a women's professional cycling team, and the hotel worked out great for a group. They gave us a group rate, and they had the use of the conference room for meetings. The location was perfect for bike riding, and the view…the view of the ocean is world class. Staff was very accommodating.

The details: decent breakfast with cereal, bagels, scones, eggs, fruit, yogurt, and drinks. Not the best in the world but adequate for athletes. The room had everything we want: good lighting, a refrigerator, very nice bed and bedding, free toiletries, a bathtub, and that awesome view.

The afternoon cookies were good, too.

Room Tip: Pay for the ocean view!

My husband had a business trip that was in a neighboring city and I decided to tag along with him. We stayed at the SeaCrest and was pleasantly surprised with the size of the room. VERY nice large CLEAN room, king size bed, refrigerator, microwave, (which in most hotels both are extra money, not here) nice table ans chairs in the room as well as a desk area, and a balcony.

We didn't have a room with a view, but if we went out onto our balcony we could see the ocean. I left the sliding glass door open most of the time when I was in the room just to hear the ocean.

I spent A LOT of time sitting in the patio areas. Taking photos or crocheting.

The staff was very nice and helpful.

The only down fall was the path that went from the hotel grounds to the beach was under renovation, so, we had no direct access to the beach.

We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: When we stay here again, we are definitely going to as for a room with a view.

My husband and I have traveled to Pismo on many occasions. We've stayed at many different hotels. The Seacrest surpassed our expectations. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were clean and well kept. Of course the view was to die for. I will definitely be back. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

What a beautiful place! Clean, lovely room with balcony, beautiful views. Loved the outdoor fire places and hot tubs!

Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The only issue we had was that one day, the housekeeper decided not to service our room. It was our first day there AND my husbands birthday so it would have been nice to walk into a cleaned up room. Otherwise I would have given them a perfect score. She came in the room and left him a bday card and chocolates but did not do her job which was to clean up the room. Bummer.

Room Tip: We loved the corner room, second floor!
