I am a friend or relative of a resident

I have a friend at Pacific Inn, and I am very quite happy with the facility. The facility is very clean, and my friend's room is very nice. A cleaning lady comes in once a week and cleans the whole apartment. Their dining room is also very nice. The staff are very nice people.

I visited this facility

I went to visit Pacific Inn because it was not that far from my home and someone recommended it. I liked the location and it was extremely clean. The staff and the residents seemed upbeat. They had a lot of activities. The dining room was very nice and very well-maintained. It was my number one choice if I moved my mother.

Pacific inn was a very nice place. I would love to live there myself. It was a nicely decorated place. The rooms were nice and clean. But I thought they were very expensive.

I moved my mother to this place about a year ago. Beforehand, she was living at home alone, and she wasn't that much of a social person. It's amazing what I've seen since she's been at this fine senior living establishment. The facilities are almost spotless, and the staff is always making sure it is a germ-free environment. She's always out at different activities. She loved the trip to Griffith Park a few weeks back. She has great neighbors and friends.The staff is there for her whenever she needs them, and the staff is so attentive to all her needs. The food as also amazing and very healthy. You won't find a better place in the Santa Clarita Valley. She's very happy here. I'm so thankful that such a place like this existed so close to my home.

The Pacific Inn is an extremely nice facility. It is most definitely not like any other retirement or nursing home - and it is right on the beach in a great location.

The gazebo out back was a very relaxing spot to sit with my client. They also had a very nice client entertainment room, where the elderly sat to play crads, enjoy the view, and talk.

It was nothing like a nursing home - bur more like an apartment complex on the beach where the elderly could ask for help doing things if they needed; such as chores and daily living routines, etc.

The client seemed very happy with where she was staying, and with no complaints as to the staff or the facility itself. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone in the Torrence / LA area who is looking for a retirement community for their elderly family member.
