We stayed at Pacific In for 2 nights during our road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. We had been recommended to visit Seal Beach and it is well worth the visit, we would love to go back, it is a small town with beautiful beach and main street with many individual restaurants and cafes. Pacific Inn was in... More

We were surprised by the size of our room, which was actually a suite. Spacious living area, room and bathroom complete with a jacuzzi tub. Loved the small but well appointed pool area but didn't have time to use it. All the staff were delightful. One of our outlets did not work, we told the front desk and it was... More

My family and I have stayed at The Pacific Inn now for a few years in a row. We very much enjoy our stay there, the staff is always friendly, accommodating and the location is excellent. The rooms are always well kept, housekeeping is always professional and do a very good job. The pool is small but the beach is... More

Our friend booked us in to this Hotel just around the corner from her house since she didn't have any room for us at the time. She very generously paid for us so I don't know the cost but it was lovely. Great locatioln, wonderful facilities and fabulous breakfast. The lady who looked after the breakfast had been there 17...

Stayed overnight on a Sunday while attending an evening function at the park near the beach. The property is older (mid 70s?) and shows it, but they are trying. Staff was nice, parking and Internet free. Many restaurants nearby and it's a 5 minute walk to the main drag leading to the beach which has at least 4 Irish pubs... More

Thanks to all the managers and staff of this nice hotel for all their help and cooperation in arranging an event for our family and friends to get together here. Our family booked seven rooms here, a year or so in advance, so we could "take over" the pool area on a Saturday for our event. My sisters got the... More

We were back at the Pacific Inn in late June into July. As always a great time. We booked our room and were unable to get 3 of the nights we wanted. Upon arrival we were informed that our complete reservation was available due to a cancellation. We were in the air when the cancellation occurred and the staff immediately... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms, affordable prices, good restaurants and beach within walking distance. We have been many times and will go again. Free parking if you stay in the hotel, how often do you get that? Loved it!

**SPOILER ALERT** There were some significant problems with our stay here (more on this below). We probably will not stay here again. First time in 8 years that a choice made from Tripadvisor recommendations has been a disappointment. First, let me say that I really, really wanted to like this place. We have family in the area, but it is... More

I am terribly sorry to hear that you experienced these issues during your stay. Unfortunately with complementary wifi comes a lot of guests taking advantage of this amenity, which can often result in a slower connection. As for the housekeeping and room maintenance issues these are definitely not standards that we hold here at The Pacific Inn and I will... More
