SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel

Classic seaside hotel on the Pismo Beachfront

With possibly the best location found in Pismo Beach, the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel is the ideal place for a great traditional stay by the sea. Direct beach access, three hot tubs and an outdoor swimming pool ensures that guests can make the most of the climate plus the barbecue area provides a great place for self-catering dining outdoors. The entire complex is based around the great ocean views and guests are able to make the most of the beautiful panoramas from the fourth floor terrace or spend a cosy evening at the SeaMist terrace complete with lounge chairs and firepits. When it’s time to explore the area, why not take advantage of the bike hire scheme and whirl along to the Pismo Beach pier for some more ocean views. At the end of the day you can retire to your retro-chic room and enjoy self-catering facilities in the form of a microwave and fridge for a late night snack.

Average stay


We never write reviews and never complain, but thought this deserved one. We are currently staying at the hotel and tried to get a robe since we saw one in a display case in the lobby. We were told by a woman in the lobby that in order to get a robe it depends on the type of room you have. Apparently an ocean view room costing $457 a night doesn’t cut it. You have to have a “deluxe” room to get a robe. Yes, this may sound petty, but it’s the principle. The view is fabulous, but not sure it’s worth that much.

SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel

The property and its management are 1st class in every way! The location is superb and the facility scrupulously clean. The staff is very cordial, well-informed and always helpful. We look forward to our next stay and more exploration of Pismo Beach and the region.
