I have stayed twice at this hotel and find it hard to fault especially for the price. As my child is at University in Long Beach there have been many times when I've had to find accommodation so I've tried a few - the last one being The Queen Mary - where once was enough. And I'm quite picky about the sort of place I want to stay in and in this area it's hard to find somewhere that ticks at least 75% of my boxes.
The Pacific Inn did that. Parking and WiFi are free - big bonuses when most of the other hotels charge up to $20pn alone for parking. It's clean. Comfortable rooms that are light and well sized with nice bedding (a deal breaker for me).
Easy to get to with well lit areas which as I'm an alone traveller is important - I need to feel safe. Good room sizes with everything you could want including a kettle, fridge and balcony (though you don't get a view except of streets/restaurants).
You won't get a fancy restaurant and breakfast is fairly basic (continental only) - but it's included which is another bonus.
The walls are thick enough that you don't get noise from your fellow occupants.
It was chilly when I was there (Xmas Dec.2012) and the rooms climate controls efficiently and easily did the job keeping me warm.
The free TV channels are limited and it's a bit of a pain to navigate to them (they obviously want to sell you the pay films) but you get used to it.
The front desk staff were warm, welcoming and informative.
The only sacrifice I can think of is that you won't get a view of the sea - but the trade off was worth it.
