holiday inn long beach downtown

Hello,

I am conflicted if I made the right choice staying there with my family but the hotel is booked. Could anyone tell me how far it is to the beach, shopping, or other fun family things to do?? We will have transportation

Thanks for any help,

John

Is this the one at 1133 Atlantic? If it is, change it as soon as possible. There is nothing in the area, it isn't the best area. It may be a lovely hotel on the inside, but the neighborhood iffy.

If you must stay there they get yourself downtown, south of 5th street (about 6 blocks) where you will find restaurants, the ocean, the Aquarium. West on Ocean you will find 2nd Street in Belmont Shore, a street lined with shops, restaurants, and ends with a bay.

Have fun.

Huskerland,

Why are you looking in Long Beach??

IF you post another question and put in your dates and the budget you are willing to spend for hotel and how many people are in your travel group then people can give you good suggestions.

Folks will help you plan the trip so tell us what you are thinking please??

Any hotel near Ocean Blvd. Since I don't stay in them (I live here, why would I?) I can't make specific recommendations, but I know all the hotels can be found here on Tripadvisor. Of course there will be negatives, but weigh them against the positives, stay near Ocean Bl, and you will be fine.

Because I live here I can say there really isn't much to do in LB. If it were me, I'd stay nearer to Huntington Beach where you can quickly get to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and many other attractions, and the beaches are nicer.

The more info you provide the better answers you'll receive. For instance, What are you coming to see/do? What are the ages of your group? How much do you want to spend?

When you say "anywhere along the coast", what is it that you want to do or see while here? Is it just that you want to be right on or near a beach? We need more information.

Since Universal Studios isn't near the beach I'm going to suggest my favorite beach on the west-facing coast - Hermosa Beach. There are a couple of places right on the Strand (a sidewalk filled with pedestrians, bicyclers, skateboarders) which is right on the beach. There is some shopping, nice restaurants, a comedy club, and always a fun vibe. Any of the beaches along that coast - Redondo, Manhattan, Santa Monica, Venice - are nice.

What other attractions will you be visiting besides Universal? The Greater L.A. metro area is HUGE -- so we'll help you pick a hotel in a convenient neighborhood (near a beach) but it helps to know what other sites are on your itinerary in order to direct you to the best neighborhood.
