This hotel is within walking distance to Los Alamitos Beach where we attended a volleyball tournament. If you're lugging beach equipment, it's probably a bit too far to walk. It's a few blocks away from the free shuttle that can take you to various tourist spots. We rode it over to the Queen Mary. The hotel itself was nice, with... More

The hotel was in walking distance of the beach - 20 minutes. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was excellent, but what was best about this Best Western was the staff. THEY WERE EXCEPTIONAL, I would stay here again without a doubt! They made my wife and my trip enjoyable. A hotel likes this eliminates one worry when planning a... More

We stayed in this hotel prior to our cruise and it was wonderful. Breakfast was great. The only thing that I thought was inconvienient was that you had to go off property to smoke. I wish they would allow smoking on the balconies or provide smoking rooms

Walking distance from great eating places, the convention center, and the lagoon. Staff extremely friendly and did not mind assisting you with your needs. Will stay there every time if I am attending a conference at the convention center!

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

Dear Shannon L, Thank you for taking the time to bring your experience to my attention. While speaking to you briefly at the front desk I was not aware that your stay was unsatisfactory. After reviewing our communications log and with our staff, I was not able to find a record of maintenance problems reported. We accommodate many guests each... 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.
