Retro-Chic Beachfront Hotel Overlooking Pismo Beach Cliffs and Sand Dunes
Located on top of a bluff along California’s central coast, the SeaCrest OceanFront offers panoramic views of sand dunes, cliffs, the Pacific Ocean, and, during migration season, even gray whales spouting water just off the coast. SeaCrest’s RoofTop Terrace has the best views, with couches and lounge chairs from which to soak in the gorgeous beachfront and the area’s mild temperatures. The scenery soothes even at the lobby level, where there’s a heated pool, three hot tubs, and fire pits. The hotel sits on 5 acres of park-like land, with a path that takes you from cliff’s edge down to sandy Pismo Beach.
With retro patterns and splashes of orange and yellow, the hotel’s décor displays some affection for the ’60s and ’70s, yet modern furnishings and amenities—including flat-panel HDTVs and iPod docking stations—keep it from feeling like a time warp. The rooms feel fresh and energizing, especially inside the deluxe OceanFront rooms, where sunglow-yellow walls complement the blue of the ocean just outside. Each room is complete with a furnished terrace and is just a few steps from the pool and fire pits.
Each morning, a complimentary continental breakfast includes coffee and hot chocolate, and fresh-baked cookies are available the rest of the day. For a full meal, make the short walk or ride a bike to downtown Pismo Beach.
Pismo Beach, California: Seaside Surf Town Close to Wine Country
Located along the Central California coast around the midpoint between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Pismo Beach enjoys 315 days of sunshine each year and temperatures ranging from 66 to 84 degrees. The weather is ideal for the surfing and beach culture that surrounds the 23-mile, white-sand coast. Besides surfing and tanning, visitors enjoy hiking the Oceano Dunes and exploring the coast’s tide pools.
The warm weather and misty mornings also provide great conditions for winemaking in the nearby Edna Valley. With one of California’s longest growing seasons, the Edna Valley AVA has some of the region’s best wineries, producing large quantities of chardonnay, pinot noir, and syrah.
