I was checked in/out by Michelle at the front desk. The property was very nice and clean. We were welcomed as we entered and able to get checked in efficiently. I liked the fact there were waters, a snack and a fresh remote waiting when I went in the room. Michelle helped me out by printing my tickets so I... More

Friendly staff, great location and extremely comfortable rooms. All amenities were well-stocked and well-placed in the rooms. Positive WIFI experience and a convenient business center in the hotel makes this an ideal place to stay for business or pleasure in the Long Beach area.

My room was not near current construction work being done, so I have no complaints. I also had a mini fridge in my room (apparently not all rooms have that). Front desk staff were very friendly. Location was great (not on main street so less noise than could be expected at other places). Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. If... More

Best Western is close enough to the LB Convention center, as long as you don't mind walking 15 mins or so. I did not, and I love the morning stroll amongst the palm trees. The local "characters" were never any trouble.

The staff at the front desk were so friendly and courteous. They made check in a breeze! The room was very clean and a nice size. I really liked the continental breakfast. Many breakfast choices to choose from. The location of the hotel was not too far from beach and to great places to eat. I would definitely stay here... More

I had a great stay at this hotel. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful. Location is great and central to everything. The pool was a bit disappointing and the gym could have some free weights. Breakfast was very good with a good selection. Wifi in rooms were great.

I was met by the most welcoming and friendly attendant I have ever encountered at the front desk for an easy check in. Although the room was a bit small, there was a gift bag of refreshments and water awaiting me in my room as well as lemon infused ice water all day in the lobby and fresh flowers in... More

It was close to a variety of places to eat, attractions , buses to Queen Mary and Ferry terminal. It was also an easy walk to grocery store and shops. Rooms were nice size, clean, easy access. Staff was very friendly. Good breakfast also.

Even though it has a great location I would never book this hotel again. Dated interior, ice cold indoor pool and a breakfast room that can only hold 20 people at max. This hotel is a joke. Rooms are normal sized with tiny beds, bedsheets had holes all over. Carpet was ripped. Other than that it was at least clean.

Dear Thomas K, I am surprised to hear that your linen had holes, they are delivered daily by laundry service and they are inspected both by our supplier as well as our head housekeepers every day after our rooms are cleaned. Some parts of our hotel such as our lobby, breakfast area, pool, business center, etc. were just recently renovated... More
