The Pacific Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Seal Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a quiet area from which we could access the beaches to the south (which were packed with people and expensive hotels). The Pacific Inn was just such a place. Located in a quite residential area of the very attractive City of Seal Beach, this hotel is close to everything, but also an oasis of calm. It is only a short walk to the beach or Main Street with many eateries. It has free, mostly covered parking. The room was fine with a small balcony. The continental breakfast was adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful. When we went into LA, Long Beach or hit the busy beaches to the south, it was good to kick back in Seal Beach at the Pacific Inn.

Room Tip: The sounds from the pool can echo a bit - so the quieter rooms are down the hall.

We usually go to Seal Beach to celebrate our anniversary each year, and we stay at the Pacific Inn. It allows us to walk around town and the pier and eat at our favorite restaurants like Walt's Wharf. But it's also close to Long Beach and Laguna Beach's Sawdust Festival. Very friendly staff, nice room and a complimentary breakfast. We also like to sit in the ocean air on the room's balcony. Very nice hotel.

A fantastic location in seal beach . A five minute walk to the main street with lots of bars and restaurants and to the beach. There is a supermarket and pharmacy across the road plus various take always and drive throughs. The rooms are large and clean with a good shower and a fridge and coffee maker and balconys . Breakfast is provided and on arrival you have a token for a free breakfast in Hennesseys in Seal Beach. There is a small pool in the centre of the hotel . Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rental from the front desk . The staff were all very friendly and helpful . There is Internet connection provided and a printer to use in the lobby . My only negative is the decor is crying out to be uplifted . Lighter paint and new carpets would transform this place . It's a great base for the beach and for couples and families . We would love to visit Seal Beach again and would definately stay here again .

Room Tip: I would ask for a room away from the breakfast room if you like a lie in as it opens at 5am and is p...

Very reasonably priced, located a short pleasant walk to the beach. Room clean and a pretty good size. Nice little balcony. Quiet. Has wading type pool and an exercise room. Plenty of parking in the lot and around the property. Will come back!

My husband and I stayed at the Pacific Inn last weekend for 2 nights because we had family in town renting a beach house and we didn't want to have to drive home each night to South Orange County.
The Pacific Inn is a very nice small hotel for a great price. Very nice front desk people, clean rooms, comfy beds with nice linens and a very nice bathroom.
No views to speak of but hey, it's a 2 minute walk to Main Street and the beach.
I highly recommend this inexpensive but really nice hotel

This hotel's location can't be beat. Its within walking distance of Main Street and the beach. You can park and literally never drive again. the rooms are all renovated, though our shower faucet was a little broken. They could brighten the rooms up a bit, but the pool and jacuzzi are nice too. We had a wedding in Seal Beach three years ago and a lot of our guests stayed there as well and had good experiences.

everyone on staff was so friendly and made us feel great. location ideal..my friends always stay here and have told us about it for years, but we finally made it. Seal Beach is a very nice family community with lots of stuff to do. There is a small park across the street from the hotel and also the library if you just want to chill out there for awhile. concerts at the pier on Wednesday evenings....
