If you are fed up with those big chain factory hotels this is a very nice alternative. The hotels is pretty small but therefore the personal touch is great: staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are fairly small but well designed and how much time do you spend in your room anyway? Long Beach city center (if something like this exists in most cities in the US ;-)?) is a 5-10 min. walk. Breakfast is included but do not expect a big buffet or so, which again is fine to me... I just need something small to eat before hidding the road. Coffee is available 24/7 :-).
