Hubby and I have been coming here for years for our anniversary. We are never disappointed with the views of the beautiful beach, the relaxing private hot tub, and of course the customer service. The staff at the front( Fiona) and the housekeeping staff(Maria) and the others are so helpful. Thank you again for a great anniversary.

Beyond disappointed with my experience at Sea Venture. I had high hopes for this trip for my birthday and it was ruined within 2hrs of checking in.

Beyond disappointed with my experience at Sea Venture. I had high hopes for this trip for my birthday and it was ruined within 2hrs of checking in. Upon check in we learned the elevator was broken and we were put on the 3rd floor. I have twins so this was an actual nightmare carrying all of our stuff up the stairs to our room. The room was hot and extremely small. The toilet didn't work and neither did the fireplace. I will never stay here again. Read less

This was the perfect Covid friendly hotel stay. The hot tub on the balcony with ocean views was amazing, especially with the cold weather. The fireplace was lovely and heated up the room very quickly. Dinner was delicious, loved having room service and not needing to go out. Breakfast was basic, but I appreciated it delivered at the time we selected the night before, and arriving hot to enjoy on the balcony. All the staff here were very courteous, and I felt very safe here with all the Covid precautions in place. There is no daily room service due to Covid, but it’s not really needed anyway. Extra towels is already sufficient. I appreciate that the hot tubs are completely drained and cleaned, made me feel very comfortable using it. Also something to note, the location of this hotel is at the end of all the other beachfront hotels, so it is quieter and has much less people around on the beach than the others. I would definitely stay here again! Read less

We had a wonderful visit in the King Full Ocean View and we happened to get a room almost in the middle and the view was gorgeous! They empty, sanitize and refill the spas everyday so that was super comforting to know. The room decor was beautiful. They are in the middle of remodeling and everything in the room looked new so that was wonderful.… Read more
We had a wonderful visit in the King Full Ocean View and we happened to get a room almost in the middle and the view was gorgeous! They empty, sanitize and refill the spas everyday so that was super comforting to know. The room decor was beautiful. They are in the middle of remodeling and everything in the room looked new so that was wonderful. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud, we got the best sleep. They had robes to use so that was a nice touch we were not expecting. Their breakfast was delicious and I was super happy to see a bacon for the meat option as most don’t offer bacon and you get two mimosas out of the juice and champagne bottle they send. Best hotel breakfast in bed we have ever had. We will be back at that hotel and hopefully sooner than later. Read less

We are regulars to Pismo and have eaten at the Sea Venture several times but never stayed there. For our 34th anniversary we decided to drop the $500 per night for the ocean front room so highly rated on trip advisor. We arrived early and were allowed to park but early check in was not available. They did call us when the room was ready and since we had checked in online we basically grabbed the keys and headed to room 423. The hallways are dark and the flooring is very filthy and the stairway is even worse. The small room had been updated but this is obviously an old property with a great location. We had a small balcony right on the beach with our personal hot tub which turned out to be the highlight of the stay. Right away we noticed the foot traffic on the ceiling which turned out to be the restaurant and bar. Thankfully the Covid stopped the clog dancing on our ceiling about 10:00pm each night. I can’t imagine staying here when the bar is open until 2:00am! We had dinner and brunch at the restaurant and both times the service was horrible but the food was good. The highlight is that you can take drinks to your room to enjoy in the hot tub. The personnel at this property are just bad. From the front desk to the waiters and waitresses they all just belong in another profession. The maintenance person who fixed our broken phone (used for room service) was the only pleasant staff member. Due to Covid we were informed there would be no daily service of the room and we could text for additional coffees and towels. I wondered why we didn’t get a discount for the reduced service as we surely paid top price for this old place. Bottom line: This place is old and extremely noisy. Staff needs some serious attitude adjustment. Location rocks but the competition has great location too and we will try them next time. Read less
