This hotel is right in the middle of everything. It's got tons of character and the staff is very attentive. Along with wine tastings and a some-what decent breakfast everyone here has a great attitude.

If you stay here more than a day or two - you seem meet everyone: from the great staff in the lobby and the other guests at either breakfast or wine hour to the owner himself! The guests range all over the place - from visiting med students, actors, to actual government dignitaries - it's like being at a small,... More

We have been to the Varden before and knew we would return. A year later we were met by the Owner Larry who remembered our names and why we visit. We are avid soccer fans and the hotel is a close drive to the stadium. It is also close to restaurants, a perfect nap and shower before the game, wine... More

Stayed here one night in June before boarding cruise ship from Long Beach. Had horrific time with delayed flights, lost bags etc but hotel staff were great. Very helpful and supplied toothbrushes and deodorant. Rooms were good, bed was very comfortable. Good selection in the buffet breakfast and great coffee. What more could you want?

We stayed at The Varden and found the hotel to be very convenient to the downtown shops and restaurants. The owner Larry and his staff were very helpful and friendly. The service provided was fabulous. The breakfast and evening snacks provided was very good and gave us a chance to mingle with other quests. Will definitely stay here again. The... More

When possible we like to stay at hotels that aren't part of chain but at the same time, have good reviews. We were extremely pleased with our experience at The Varden. It is a beautifully restored hotel within walking distance of many downtown restaurants and attractions. The staff was extremely hospitable and eager to assist. The room was clean, bright,... More

Whenever I come to Long Beach, I stay at this lovely and welcoming boutique hotel. The owners / managers are wonderful and always take the time to know their guests and make us feel comfortable. Always clean, simple and quiet. A wonderful getaway and secret find that I highly recommend! Catherine
