The Hillcrest Inn worked very well for our family of 5. As we were traveling from Switzerland, the fact that they had all of the beach toys with a wagon to bring them to the beach was a BIG PLUS! The beach is a short walk and as the kids had never been to the Pacific, they loved it. The...

We have stayed at several properties in Seaside on previous trips, but this was our first stay at Hillcrest Inn. The hosts Don and Ruth are friendly and upbeat, as are all the staff members we encountered. There is a palpable sense of pride in keeping the property clean, maintained and well supervised. The light continental breakfast available in the...

I stayed at the Hillcrest and boy what a second chance can do. The first time I stayed I was probably one of only a few guests and was stuck under a very "amorous" couple. After listening to a prolonged bed workout, they left only to return after the bars let out, and were quickly back at it. Ruth the...

I absolutely love this place and will not stay anywhere else. And my family lives on the Coast. The owners are terrific. I will be returning for a month in October. It's quiet and has all the luxuries you would find in your home. I can't wait to get back.

At the last minute we were looking to get away with the dog and not break the bank. Hillcrest remembered me from like 7 years back and were hilarious to book with over the phone, Don made us feel welcome even before we arrived.

Ruth and family have done a great job making this little charmer a comfortable and sweet place to stay. Within a block of the beach, this central location allowed us to walk anywhere we wanted to go.

Great management ... lots of help and going the extra mile. Clean and close to the shoreline (about a block or so.) We found the location very convenient for walking around the town. There are regular rooms, kitchenettes, and cottages ... so plenty of options for however many in your family.
