We only spent one night here but wish we had have had more time, as we loved the area and the hotel was so clean, modern rooms, quiet and in a great spot to be able to walk and explore the area The cookies available was a nice touch, so was the free shuttle bus to take you into long... More

The Pacific Inn is situated in the most ideal location if you are looking to visit Seal Beach. But, their friendly service is most definitely the reason why I keep coming back. The front desk always greets everyone with a smile, offers each guest a complimentary bottle of water, and check-in is easy and efficient. Each employee is more than... More

Our room had been recently remolded, it was terrific,clean & very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The property is within walking distance to the beach and Main Street. The Seal Beach area is very relaxing, family friendly, lot's of dinning options, beaches are clean. We'll be back.

Little above average but generic. Rooms are large and clean and bed very comfortable. Bathroom in updated with glass barn door on runner which would slide shut on it's own. Quiet location and easy walk to main street for dining and shopping,but they do offer free transport to anywhere within 5 miles of the hotel which is a very nice... More

Thanks for the review! We are currently in the process of making our full hot breakfast fully functional, so we will have other options besides cereal and bagels. More

We have stayed at this hotel many times before over the last three or four years. This last visit was the worst. When we first walked in our third floor room it had a bad smell, like bad water. Once I had turned on the water the I notice a smell coming from the faucet. Not the most inviting to... More

Checked in last minute. This hotel is very clean and well maintained. Nice pool area with hot tub.close to beach and very helpful informative staff. They have a shuttle that will take you anywhere within 5 miles and puck you up.the breakfast was good with a lot of choices. I would stay here again for sure.

I stayed here for 3 nights and everything went well. The rooms are very clean and the room is spacious. The furnishes have good taste and the bathroom is ample and everything worked perfectly. Great hot water for those chilly mornings we had on February. The best was the bed, both beds were extremely comfortable, it's always great when the... More

We revisited this hotel and stayed in a room at pool level, facing 7th street. The layout was the same, shell shaped soap instead of the cute handmade seal shaped soap. They were switching out all the queen size beds to new ones. I was very impressed with the breakfast selection. It had everything from the usual cereal bar, fruits,... More

We arrived too early for check-in, but left our car in the FREE parking lot, and got a FREE shuttle ride to our local destination--all in a matter of minutes. Inn is walking distance to Main Street and many shops and restaurants, also walking distance to the pier and beach, which saves having to struggle to find a place to... More

The Pacific Inn's website makes it look sexy--huge atrium, beautiful balconies, etc. This is not that kind of property. It's a nicely updated motel with some amenities. The bathroom renos are exceptional. Ask for a room facing south - Marina Drive is loud and not too attractive.

Thank you CatchLimit for taking the time to review The Pacific Inn. Last year a TripAdvisor Photographer did come to the hotel to take pictures of the property and posted about 300 photos. We can see where a professional picture taken at a flattering angel and or with great lighting can make a photo appear Photoshopped. While we do not... More
