We had our wedding at a local Long Beach venue and chose Best Western Plus for ourselves and guests. The location was perfect- walking distance to everything. The staff was kind and friendly, the rooms good size and we had no complaints.

I found this hotel to be an excellent value. The hotel is clean and the rooms spacious and up to date, except for the noisy air conditioning unit. The breakfast is decent, and considering it is included, quite acceptable. The breakfast area is small, however, and we had to bring food to our room to eat it as there were... More

We loved the fact that this hotel is in the heart of the newly revitalized downtown of Long Beach, CA and is within easy walking distance of so many quality restaurants and cafes. It is also just a short drive to the Rainbow Marina and the Belmont Shore neighborhood.

Firstly, the receptionist was robotic and insensitive to requests...may have been in training and overwhelmed. Secondly, my daughter couldn't stand the smell from the air con vents.It made her sick such that she drove back to Sherman Oaks to sleep in her own house,whilst I stayed with the two kids. She returned in the morning and we moved on. The... More

I expect a certain standard when I book Best Western but the Convention Center location in Long Beach is without doubt the worst one I've stayed in. Having requested in advance a travel cot / 'pack and play' for my 7 month old baby, we were told at reception that it would cost $15 an night to use. In this... More

This property is conveniently located, a good value for the $$ and the room was very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, the pillows were a little hard (personal preference). Within walking distance of most eateries and shopping in downtown Long Beach. All in all a very good value. This is by no means a 5 star resort, but I... More

What a fantastic place to stay. Right in the middle of some of the best restaurants and bars Long Beach has to offer, the BW+ is fantastic. The rooms are nice and cozy and clean, the staff is very friendly and the breakfast was awesome. Highly recommend.

I've stayed her before and have always enjoyed staying here. There are a lot of placed to eat within walking distance and it is in a nice neighborhood that I felt safe walking in at night. I was surprised with the personally written welcome card left in the room upon my arrival. Most places don't bother with these things, which... More

This was a excellent hotel for my new husband and I on our last night of our honeymoon. We were impressed with the beautiful guest room and cleanliness of everything. It was walking distance to many attractions and the bus stops, making it easy for us to find things to do! The hotel staff were very friendly and even helped... More

We've stayed twice this summer, both times were satisfied with cleanliness of rooms and courteousness of staff. Location very convenient if you are willing/able to walk several minutes as Long Beach's free tourist bus line stop is just a block or two away. Municipal Depo & Metro train station is 3 blocks away & can get the adventurous all over... More
