“Wrote and review last year--worse now”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Forget this place altogether. If its all you can afford please go elsewhere. Mold in the shower, dirty carpets, minimal parking. Pool area is dirty and unkempt. Noise level from pool area is horrible if druken people are there. Had to stay there as company paid--will not stay there again. Like I said last year--it must have been good in the 70s.

Room Tip: Get a room that overlooks the dumpsters, that is where the like to put business people.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We take our customers’ problems seriously and are glad to hear from you. First of all we would like to thank you for choosing to stay at The Pacific Inn for your lodging accommodations for a second time and we are sorry to hear that you had another unpleasant stay.
Our property is an older building and was established 27 years ago and has been The Pacific Inn for about 10 years now. During this time we have done extensive renovations and updates to your rooms to ensure that we are providing the best services possible for our customers. Since we are an older building we do strive to always maintain and update the property. In your comment you mentioned that in your room the carpets were dirty and had mold in the shower and again I do apologize because that is not the standards we have. We do hire professional carpet cleaners as well as re-grout our showers every year to ensure that problems like these do not arise. Please e-mail us back with the room you stayed in so we can make sure to address these problems.
Since our pool is in the middle of our hotel I completely understand how it can get noisy especially if there are a lot of people going in and out of the pool. This is one of the reasons we have set hours where people can use our pool (between 6am and 10pm). We do have a bellman that monitors this as well as picks up the pool area but since he has many other jobs, he checks and cleans the pool periodically which is why you may have seen it a bit unkempt at that moment.
Again, thanks for taking the time to let us know how you feel. We appreciate customers who let us know when things are not right so that we can please our guests.

We have stayed here a few times over the past few years. And we were so pleasantly surprised by it. We weren't familiar with Seal Beach, but took a chance. It is a perfect little beach town that is hidden just south of Long Beach. You are close enough to the main freeways, and only about 20 minutes from Anaheim (Disneyland)!! And about 3 blocks from the beach, you can't go wrong with this place. The staff is very accommodating and the rooms have been upgraded and are always very clean. And another bonus, free breakfast!! You can't go wrong with waffles, juices, breakfast burritos and muffins. This will always be our go to place when staying in the L.A area.

We have stayed at this property many times while visiting our son and his family in Seal Beach. It is the perfect location to walk along Main Street. They offer free shuttle service as well! We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Seal Beach!

We spent 6 nights at The Pacific Inn. It met our needs very well. Very conveniently located within walking distance of tons of restaurants, shops, beach. Parking is included in the rate. Although not the most fanciest, the price was competitive, and I would stay there again.

We have stayed here many times over the years and always enjoy coming back. We were in town to participate in the Seal Beach 5K, the best thing about this hotel is when we arrive, we park once and then we can walk to anywhere we want to go in Seal Beach.
