Nice location, close to the waterfront and downtown activities. Not in the newest part of town but it felt very comfortable. There were only 2 problem areas but they were big ones. The internet connection was horrible, several times pages would time out because the connection was so slow it would time out. Once in a while things would speed... More

Short walk to convention center, beach and restaurants. We were there for ISS which is a must go for people in t-shirts or active wear business. The pool was finally finished but we did not have time to use it..

I decided to try this "Plus" hotel which is only about a mile from the regular Best Western I normally stay at in Long Beach. The price was only a couple of dollars more and it was in a more downtown district. My first surprise was that I had to drive around the block twice before I found the parking... More

After a terrible night at a different hotel we were extremely grateful to come to a hotel with clean corridors and no funky smell in the room. The king bed was amazingly comfortable. The hotel was fully booked and was slightly overwhelmed, it seemed. For several days we asked for extra towels and did not receive them. We also asked... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights before a cruise. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly. Not much of a view unless you like looking at other hotel rooms! The breakfast was good however the breakfast room is quite small. Best bet is to go either early or later. Since it is served from... More

This hotel is grossly overrated. No refrigerator or microwave in the rooms.No stamps at desk. Hotel is old and antiquated with very little atmosphere. I would not come back here again because of the lack of atmosphere. Cabs back out of there parking spots at all hours of the morning and evening.

This is my 2nd of what I hope to be many stays at this property. The construction is almost complete and does not interfere with the rooms at all, I did not even take notice of it but read about it. The bedding is as nice as what I have come to expect from a Hilton or Marriott. Most importantly... More

This Best Western was located near freeways and had a huge shopping mall directly across the street. The area around the Hotel also has several restaurants and fast food places for you convenience.

The room was probably one of the nicest Best Western rooms I have been in. It was spacious and clean...even had a bathroom scale. The free breakfast was lacking and did not meet my expectations after seeing the room. The scrambled eggs looked like small discs and were not appealing. They had the typical waffle maker but I choose to... More

I'm far from being psychic but if I knew this hotel was under construction I would have avoided it this trip. Location was perfect for our needs. A suitable deli next door and a grocery store just around the corner. Breakfast courtesy of the hotel was filling and a thought out menu buffet. On the down side... The lobby was... More
