The hotel had broken a/c units, the rooms are small and do not come with a fridge. The staff is unfriendly and uncaring about situations involving room cleanliness, the broken a/c, and the HORRIBLE parking situation. You may not be able to park in their underground parking every day of your stay but will be charged anyway. Rooms are very... More

My daughter and I spent 3 days at the Hotel. The hospitality was excellent and the room was clean. In addition, we felt safe during our visit. I would recommend this hotel for your stay in Long Beach.

This hotel is run by con artists.. When my hotel reservations got mixed up through an online service I was forced to book a room for a night. With no warning I noticed I was charged 500 for smoking however, I went outside to smoke a few times during my one night stay. Nevertheless, once I noticed the charge I... More

Don't believe those negative reviews, this is a very nice place to stay. The employees were friendly and helpful and rooms were clean. If view is important though make sure to make arrangements otherwise you may end up having a view of the ally. Wasn't a big deal for our short trip so I can't really complain. Price was good... More

Walking distance to the beach. Very close to nice restaurants. Friendly staff. Fresh flowers in the lobby and by the entrance of the elevator. Breakfast area is clean and has a variety of breakfast items. Everything in the room was clean and in working condition. Also, fresh water with lemons or orange slices in the lobby.

My stay was for a conference a few blocks away. The staff at the Best Western are AMAZING - so helpful and friendly. The room was clean and large. The area around the hotel is great, nice restaurants and atmosphere.

The location is great -- easy to walk to many restaurants & shops. Room was clean and furnished very nicely. Breakfast was good, but the room was very crowded (we shared a table with a mom & daughter) & the food needed to be refilled more than once during our time there. Never happy about having to pay for parking,... More

I was there for the NCDA conference and I really enjoyed my stay. My room was immaculate! The hotel provides free WiFi access and breakfast. The breakfast attendant went above and beyond to make sure everything was stocked. The Front Desk agents were all professional. Mirian at check out was friendly and willing to help out. We had an unfortunate... More

Comfortable clean rooms - friendly and helpful people. Very convenient to visit the Convention centre. Defintiely exceeded my expectations. Plus plus. Breakfast was standard - but hot breakfast finished too early due to a bit of crowd.
