Wonderful location and nice staff.

We are older people and this hotel was so easy for us to "navigate" for 4 days. We will return here. See full review

Business Stay - One Night

Wonderful!! This was a delightful surprise for someone who is in a different hotel every night. Very nice! The only thing that was a negative surprise was the $10 fee for parking which I didn't see in the information blurb. The good news is that it was very reasonable given the parking fees at other nearby hotels and they allowed me to park there until 5pm the following day without charging again for the parking fee.

Excellent stay

I visit Long Beach several times per year on business at the convention center. I have found this hotel to be the best value. It is quiet, clean, free breakfast and the rates are very reasonable. It is a few block walk to the convention center each morning, but since the weather is always perfect it is actually a pleasant way to start the day.

Call and confirm

Call ahead to make sure you have the room. Just because you have a paper dosen't mean anything to the hotel or to this service. I requested a 2 bed room, I got a single full bed room and I had to fight for that, not fun after a 5hr drive and 10 pm at night. Had to put the matress on the floor and sleep on the boxspring. Not fun , not right!

Conference

Stayed at hotel for local conference. Friendly staff, great service. Rooms do not have refrigerators which made our stay inconvenient.

Living Large in LB

It was average. The carpets need to be cleaned. Barefoot in the room means black feet in the shower. It is a great location with lots of places to eat near by which are high quality. You are very close to the beach and the staff are very friendly. There is a mad rush for breakfast with limited seating. It was okay for the money...

Did not get to stay through travel company

I got to this hotel, but they did not have my travel company reservation or a room, so I was not allowed to stay through my travel company. The hotel did have a room two days later. I did stay at this hotel, but not through travel company.

A great staff makes a great hotel

Michelle, Miriam, Edwin and Jo at the desk are first rate. The breakfast room staff and the room cleaning staff work very hard and do things right.he staff in this hotel are great. We have been here before, and keep returning because of the service. The only negative is typical with newer hotels...the walls are paper thin, and the next door renter sounds like they are in your room.
