Older place but comfortable and clean with both cottages and rooms. All non-smoking, several pet friendly. Walking distance (two blocks, did not use car for three days) to fun downtown with lots of food, drink and shopping, and just a block off the beach. All very convenient. Don (retired Marine) and Ruth were superb hosts, most helpful, even with library...

We have stayed at Hillcrest Inn numerous times and have always been pleased. The rooms are well equipped, comfy and clean and the staff go out of their way to be helpful. They even provide free snacks/beverages in the office for your enjoyment.

First off, the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly.

I'm so happy I stayed here. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Best hotel I have ever stayed at. The room was awesome, they have DVDs to watch, very close to the beach, and they offer buckets and towels to borrow for the sand. The jet tubs are awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel experience. Thank you...

Not only did this place have rates competitive with just about anywhere except City Center Motel, but their service and rooms were just top notch!

I'm a single mom and brought my 3 kids ages 17, 13, and 11 to Seaside for Spring Break weekend 3/28-3/30. I researched all the hotels to find one that was close to both the beach and downtown but wouldn't break my budget. I read the very positive reviews for the Hillcrest and crossed my fingers!
