The Queen Mary

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Neat experience. Three restaurants available at the hotel with reasonable prices, however one was closed for renovation, one was closed one morning for a private event, and the third was dinner only and required reservations. That was very inconvenient when we wanted breakfast before a busy day. The walls are paper thin...which made sleeping difficult. We could hear everything our neighbors were saying. Free shuttle service to downtown area was helpful. Overall was very cool and fun experience. I would recommend it for a one night stay or simply to check it out.

The Queen Mary is a great old cruise ship with lots of very interesting history. Some say it is haunted, but luckily no ghosts paid us a visit while we stayed there. Staying on the Queen Mary is great for Families or anyone who loves taking a trip back to the past. We had the family room with a king bed and a twin bed for my son in a separate room. The cabins are nice and roomy but of course a little outdated as should be expected. This is probably the closest one can experience to being on the Titanic.

Excellent...!!! Was a mi dream...!!! Unbelived...!!!

I enjoy becouse is a historic museum. They need to invest more to keep the place more neat as THE CORONADO HOTEL in San Diego, that is historical but well maintenance. With a better marketing, better maintenance and personal training can be one of the best attraction in Southern California. Jaime F Prieto MB President of Prieto Engineering& Developing

Expensive food Expensive parking Expensive 'facilities fee' Not worth the money Do a tour and stay elsewhere

Fun experience staying on the boat. Quick and easy access to board our cruise ship right across the road.

This was an excellent choice, the staff were very attentive, even though there were a few quirks. The nostalgia of the ship I could have taken another day to take in. The restaurant on the Promenade deck was a great place to sit and have dinner while enjoying the scene of looking at Long Beach all lit up at night.

Flew down for an evening wedding from SFO and decided on the Queen Mary because of the history and that it was a gorgeous 10 minute walk to the wedding venue. No surprise to see the ship is old because it is. I had a double King room with a window/port hole. The room was big with beautiful wood walls, clean carpet and i think original bathroom fixtures. The lobby was beautiful, the decks pristine, great restaurants, and history in every corner. Easy to get lost in the never ending hallways but in a fun way. The staff was hepful, warm and plentiful. Free shuttles to dowtown, Aquarium and Wharf area. Great and safe for a single senior, kids, parents and grandparents. Yes it shows wear and tear, but worth the history and walking where royals walked and treated like one.

Cell phones are completely useless inside the ship...and I mean useless because of zero signal due to the steel ship all around you. Zero work space in the room for business travelers, not even a little desk or anything. Electrical outlet in table lamp didn't work and there are few outlets in the room to charge phone and laptop so I had to improvise. Rooms near front and rear of ship follow the curve / bow of the ship so my room was slanted about 2 inches from front to back (including the bed). There was very little shelf room in the bathroom so I had to stack my toiletries carefully and they fell constantly. The room thermostat had zero impact on the temperature in my room so it was always humid. Plus there is no exhaust vent in the bathroom so the steam from the shower just stayed in the room. Hanging towels were still wet 14 hours later. Every night they changed the non-valet parking, which was frustrating, you get it figured out when you check in and when you return it is different and then it is different the next night and so on. Its a solid 130 yards from the car to the lobby. The $18 buffet breakfast was no better then the free breakfast at a Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn Express. The submarine tours were no longer available as it is now closed...that was something I was looking forward to. The vending machines were out of order and after very late check in a snack would have been nice.

Be prepared for the ravages of time and weather on this ship. The Queen Mary is in various phases of restoration but even so, it was a very unique experience. The history of the ship along with the grandeur of the old days is still very impressive. The burled wood throughout the ship is a magnificent site to see. Be sure to take the tours as the guides weave very interesting tidbits into the storytelling. The area is quiet and I felt very safe.

We loved staying at this historical site. It was fun to take a tour as well.

A family trip to San Fran, Santa Cruz and Long Beach, we've been wanting to tour Queen Mary for sometime when in the area, but times never been on our side. The hotel definitely provides imaginary adventure for kids from the moment pulling up. The parking fee was hefty as w/ all hotels now. The greeter was very friendly and directed us to check-in. Check-in was easy and quick. Was offered an upgrade (declined) and provided with 2 adult admissions for Tour. The boat is big and cabin number display led to difficulty finding room. This could be better labeled for someone tired checking in late. However, they did provide a map and direction of how to reach the room, even with that it was confusing. The room itself was comparable to old world ship type cabin accommodations. That being said the look and feel was dated, but this may have been intentional. Keeping the ship dated did create a wonder of the historic time. I do think that a dated feel could be kept while upgrading carpet and bathrooms which were not in the best condition and the room did have an old smell. Otherwise room was clean and accommodations reasonable for a one night stay. Order in room service, food was tasty and moderately priced, full pizza to feed 3 $18, but no in-room tea/coffee for next day. Staying on the ship also provided the convenience to check out tour next day which I pleasantly enjoyed.

looking a little run down, there were extra charges at check out

Stayed here with two kids. Ate on board and had the experience of a fire alarm. Very exciting!

Restaurants were exceptionally good. The ship tour is a must do activity and is included with your room. Close to downtown Long Beach shopping and restaurants, and there is a free shuttle to take you there. Staff was very good. Our room was small but comfortable and nice. They have other room options. Well worth staying here for the historical, value and comfort.

Really enjoyed. She an old ship, but that's what makes your stay so unique!

If you ever wanted to fell like you were on the Titanic, this is the place to stay! I wasn't able to participate in the tours due to time restraints with my schedule, but I heard they were amazing!

Hotel was fun and unique. Staff where good. Hotel could do with some maintenance of the room we stayed in. No hot water for 2 days. Overall good for a short stay of about 2 days for something diffrent wouldnt do a long stay there.

Stayed one night in a deluxe king room and my first impression wasn't great I understand they are trying to keep it looking original but they are just neglecting it a lot of broken panels,stains on walls,broken wood,carpet is coming up,very dusty wasn't impressed the only thing that was amazing was the tours we took the glory years Tour so much information and such a great guide we loved it and very cool 4D movie as well.

The Queen Mary is NOT your standard hotel. By today's standards, it is sub-par in a number of ways. Everything is old. Some things are a bit quirky or inconvenient. Some of the decking (floors) is slippery and/or feels flimsy underfoot. By those measures, it's about equal to a Motel 6. BUT, this was once the ship of royalty, the most famous ship in the world, and one of the most luxurious. Our entire stateroom was covered in bird's-eye maple. The original cabinets still in place are made of solid wood, of a quality that is no longer available to anyone but oil sheikhs. The service is excellent, and the food at Sir Winston's is top notch.
