“Still Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

Once again we have had a perfect stay at the Pacific Inn in Seal Beach. Our last trip to Seal Beach was in Oct. 2010. Some things in Seal Beach had changed for the worst others as perfect as ever. Among the perfect was our stay at the Pacific Inn. You will not find a better value within walking distance of the Beach, Resturants, shopping and Night Life. As a plus to those of you with pets it is pet freindly at a resonable cost.

The staff to a person is professional, helpful and fun. The rooms clean and comfortable with a modern decor. From check in to check out nothing but a pleasant experience. We love Seal Beach. It is not as commercial as so many of the other beach communities. We actually schedule our trips to availability of a room at the Pacific Inn. This trip was changed by two weeks in order to stay there.

This was our first visit to Seal Beach. We stayed at the Pacific Inn on advice from experienced friends.

Parking is mostly covered, easily accessed but not secure. Check-in was friendly and efficient. At check-in we were given a coupon for 2 free full breakfasts at Hennessey's Tavern, a short walk to the main street. Freshly baked cookies & coffee in the lobby area each evening was a nice treat.

We stayed in one of the newer remodeled rooms which was quite nice. I'm not a fan of jacuzzi tubs, but it was there along with a pedestal bathroom sink which was oddly high and somewhat awkward to use.

We thoroughly enjoyed our free breakfast at Hennessy's and returned several times for other meals. Specials every night - be sure to try the BOGO burgers on Tuesdays. Contential breakfast was available at the Pacific every morning. Pleasant attendant and decent selection served on the 3rd floor. Never made it to the pool / hot tub on the 2nd floor in the courtyard interior with open air above.

Pacific Inn is a walk from the main street leading to the beach. If you want to see the ocean and feel the breeze, don't stay here. This place is more tucked in reasonably quiet neighborhood. Easy walk to the shops, restaurants, etc. Some eating establishments right across the street, incl some fast food. Seems to be a well-run independent hotel with management very involved.

Enjoyed our stay! Will definitely stay again when the time comes to return to this area.

Clean and tidy hotel, good value and with very friendly and cheerful staff who work hard and go out of their way to help. They run a free shuttle bus for example.
It looks like it's an independent hotel and they are working hard to upgrade it - nice new furniture in the rooms and upgraded bathrooms for example. No bar or restaurant and tiny breakfast area.
However, make sure this is the location you really want. it was just a bit too far from where we wanted to be for us - my fault as I was the one who chose it. It's not Huntington Beach and too far from Santa Monica/Venice Beach to be convenient for LA visiting too.

There are so many positive things to say...this is our 2nd time at this hotel and we do plan on coming back. The beds are very comfortable, free continental breakfast and afternoon cookies. After a relaxing day at the beach what is better then coming back to a heated spa with hot fresh baked cookies waiting for you. This hotel is in walking distance from main street, about 8 blocks so you don't even have to drive to enjoy a night in the town. This hotel is a hidden treasure and reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Pacific Inn with our one-year old son. Right away at check-in I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff. The room was spacious and stylish -- the bathroom had been newly remodeled and had a modern flare -- very cool. We chose the hotel based on its proximity to the marinas and restaurants, and both were just nice little walks away. We also chose them because every room has a balcony, and we like to have a place to sit together and have a bottle of wine after our son falls asleep. A perfect stay! Loved it!

very well positioned for Main Street and the beach - a quiet "small town" place to stay in LA
