I registered late for a conference at the Convention Center and this hotel was the only one around that had availability. Needless to say, I was a little worried as I tend to stay in Hampton Inns. I was very pleased with the overall experience. The room was very nice, the beds and pillows were really comfortable, and the continental... More

I stayed 2/25--3/1 for a conference in Long Beach. I chose the hotel for the value and for the previous reviews received on tripadvisor. My experience at the hotel was unfortunately mixed, though I would consider staying at the hotel again if they corrected a few things. Highs: - Nice location. You are a good 10-12 minute walk from the... More

This was a good quality hotel with a decent breakfast and free internet close to many destinations in Long Beach. The staff was particularly helpful. Although there is no restaurant for lunch or dinner in the hotel, the restaurants in the neighborhood were very good.

Very nice experience at the hotel. Good location, right next to Vons and near convention center. At the desk, Joanne is the best; she should teach classes in hotel hospitality. Shawn does a great job and is not far behind. Rooms are very well-maintained. Hotel is very clean. Breakfast setup is excellent.

This is a very nice motel surrounded by restaurants not far from the Long Beach Convention Center. The rooms are good size and beds very, very comfortable. There were several toiletries and were a good brand. The service staff were very attentive including the staff in the breakfast room. This is a good place to stay and well worth the... More

We, together with approx 60 others, were allocated this budget hotel as a 2 night stop following a cruise booked through Imagine Cruises, England. There was limited space to store luggage, as no rooms were ready on arrival. There is a reception area but no lounge, and only one lift. The hotel is 'tired' and requires updating, however, it was...

The area on Long Beach is central to the cruise line facilities. Enjoyed a walk around the commercial district with a variety of small restaurants. Rocco's Del by the Best Estern Convention center had great food. The staff at the Best Western Convention center were friendly and extremely helpful!

Stayed here for 2 nights in February 2015. Staff was helpful and the rooms were clean. Price was affordable. Located in the heart of downtown Long Beach. My only concern was parking. You have to pay $15 per day to park in their own parking lot. That's pretty much why I rated this place 4 of 5 stars.
