My husband were going to see a band in long beach in Dec. 2014 and took a chance from seeing the reviews on The Varden hotel. These people were right. This is a great place to stay. The staff are friendly with great customer service skills. I was impressed with not only the staff, the service and the hotel itself.... More

We needed a quick hotel for the night before traveling to Catalina. We searched Tripadvisor for a decent hotel and ran across The Varden. The hotel had pretty good reviews and we decided to go for it. First, we arrive and are told that we couldn't park in the parking lot that is the hotels due to an event the... More

What a fantastic hotel - clean, modern and excellent service. Two women travelling alone my main criteria was to feel safe and secure - the Varden Hotel excelled at this. The beach was ten minutes walk away as were the excellent restaurants and bars etc. We had a fantastic holiday and visited loads of attractions from this central base. Shaun,... More

Overall: Great for Solo and business travelers who travel light. Chose to stay at this Hotel one night because I had an event in L.A I had to attend, and I was running a 5k the next morning out in the LBC. First of all the Staff is Amazing! They were extremely welcoming, professional, and helpful. One of the girls... More

This is an amazing jewel of a boutique hotel that I highly recommend for many reasons! It's a historic hotel, beautifully and tastefully decorated in contemporary décor, yet preserving the elegant original architectural components. It is very conveniently located just a few blocks from the lovely shops, restaurants and harbor area of Long Beach, yet in a quiet neighborhood. It... More

Size matters, but I'll get to that later. I'll start with a positive. The Varden Hotel is an immaculate, friendly, and inviting place. There has probably never been a more welcoming staff. The location is very close to Pine Avenue restaurants and businesses. Now, more about the size aspect of the hotel. If you are a single person with almost... More

This hotel is a lovely little luxury. Rooms are tiny with all and only what you need. Great location near the harbor and darling shops. We had a business dinner and went for a long walk the next morning. Everything from water to breakfast is provided with efficiency and kindness. Never more than is needed but quite enough. Perfect for... More

Easy for the cab driver to find, centrally located next to the main Downtown area and very clean. Beds were comfortable and the area was nice. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to the area.

My second visit to Long Beach, and my second stay at the Varden. As remembered; clean, fresh, professional finish, with very helpful staff. I didn't think about booking anywhere else. Petite rooms, but by all means big enough for my needs, well suited for a European traveller.

Just off the plane but not wanting an airport hotel happened by chance onto the Varden. What a find! Clean cool rooms in both senses of the word. A little small but everything you need. Unlimited coffee, friendly helpful staff and a short walk to the Pike and the bay. Onsite parking a bonus. The Gardners UK
