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

Check in staff was super friendly. But as soon as I got in to the room I saw some old sheets. But whatever, it was midnight. I needed to hurry up and get some rest. Morning comes and breakfast room was really a room. About 200sqf only and was limited. Had an omelet and a slice of bread. 2 hours... More

We took advantage of the stay a night and get free shuttle service and parking while on your cruise out of Long Beach. The hotel staff are really nice, the location is great! Walk over to Seal Beach's Main street, down to the pier, restaurants etc. There is a pool in the courtyard with a hot tub, not the best... More

Just like the title says, awesome "mini" vacation me and the mrs had. Stayed here for the weekend and had a blast. Location is great if you want food, beach, and quiet. Staff is nice, rooms are super clean and very modern. Almost like a suite. coffee machine and cookies saved my life after a long day. Hopefully it'll be... More

We stayed here while on a business trip. The location was perfect. We walked to the little shops, and restaurants several times a day and the beach. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable, although they could use new pillows. My only real issue was the smoking. Every time I opened my door to the balcony... More

sagaseal, Public Relations Manager at The Pacific Inn, responded to this review

I'm sorry you experienced this issue with your stay. Unfortunately we do allow smoking on our balconies as long as the balcony door is closed, so there is nothing we can do to prohibit your neighbors from smoking. However, if you do find this to be a problem, never hesitate to contact the Front Desk with your concerns and we... More

The location is only a short walk to the ocean. It is clean, the employees are friendly, and is a great value for being by the ocean. It's set just behind a small trip mall but is very close to the Main Street area.

First, I must say that I spoke to several staff members in my 24 hour stay (Thanks for the early check in!) and each one of them was cheerful, helpful and accommodating. The motel as a whole was clean and pleasant. There were areas that need a little TLC and maintenance (bathroom floor could use regrouting), but overall a great... More

Nice quiet clean motel within walking distance (4 blocks) of the beach front restaurants and 2 blocks of downtown Seal Beach shopping. Nothing spectacular, but clean and friendly staff. Careful about the double queen beds, they are more like double full beds, but it all works out!

Thanks for the review! Our standard room type is a room with either a single King Bed or 2 Full Beds. We do also have rooms with 2 Queen Beds for just $10 more than the posted rate of that day. More

Spent 4 nights there. Room was OK. The pool is in an atrium, open at the top and it was a little cool for the pool, but the hot tub was hot. The pool is in the middle, with the room wing off it, so hall noise carries and the hall got cold, due to the weather. The maids chattered... More

We appreciate the review! We have actually just placed an order to add a variety rotation to our breakfast room, so that will be implemented in the next week or so. Unfortunately, the beach of Seal Beach is not a dog beach, but there is a small area designated for dogs just a 5 minute drive up to Long Beach,... More
