“Good value for the cruise and snooze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We booked the Hotel Current because it was a good value for the Cruise and Snooze package. I researched many hotels after booking our cruise because I wanted a hotel with a shuttle to take us to the cruise port and would allow us to leave our car at the hotel. When I called to reserve the room the person I talked to was very nice and informative about the information I needed. When we checked in the clerk who checked us in had been on our same cruise the week before. He gave us excellent advise on when to take the shuttle the following morning to arrive for our cruise. The rooms were large and clean. I really liked the wood floors and the bathroom area was nice and spacious. I know others have complained about the showers, but I thought they worked great. Overall a nice hotel. I would definitely stay again.

Our family stayed at the Hotel Current in Long Beach. We did the cruise and stay package where you park your car and just pay for the room. The rates at the harbor are pretty high to park so thought we would try this option and so glad we did. We were so plesantly surprised at this hotel. Very modern but not over the top. Refreshing would be a good description, very clean. Great breakfast and the transportation to and from the ship was flawless.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but try to make time to use the pool. Very, very nice area of the hotel.

We were three tall adults that booked a room with two full beds, so it was perfect that we got a free upgrade to a room with two full beds plus a couch bed. I'm assuming this upgrade was partially due to the time of year, but it was still a pleasant surprise. The room was great, it smelled clean, looked clean, and the bedspreads/sheets were white and not those awful patterns that many hotels use. The couch bed was a little uncomfortable compared to the nice, squishy full beds, but there's not much you can do to improve a couch bed. The decor was simple and like in the pictures had that modern art feel. The staff was friendly and helpful at the front desk and while we were easy customers, there was a woman that was being helped next to us who had all kinds of needs to deal with and the woman at the counter was very pleasant and trying her best to help. The staff at the breakfast gallery room was also very nice and quick to clean and replenish supplies. The breakfast area was one of the best I've seen and had lots of room to sit. The only things we didn't like were the comfort of the couch bed (which we wouldn't have even had without the upgrade) and the water pressure of the shower, both of which are mostly out of the control of the hotel. Overall a very nice stay and we will go back to this hotel again when we visit our family in Long Beach!

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise, request a room not on the PCH side, as there was traffic all through...

Our family did the cruise and stay package where you leave the car while you are gone. Surprised at the quality of the hotel, the great breakfast and the easy of the shuttle to our cruise. Both on and off the cruise went very well. This will be our stop each time were in the area.

Room Tip: Loved the family room, slept six great.

Stayed at the Hotel Current for one night pre-cruise just before Christmas. The staff was great, the room was well-decorated (loved the bathroom) and clean and the beds were very comfortable. A great place to stay at a great price.

Booked their luxury king suite with spa tub. The price was great. The room was amazing. It was huge and excellently decorated. We both agreed it was the nicest room either of us had ever stayed in (although we don't generally stay in luxury rooms or anything). The king bed was mega comfy and the room was nice and quite. The spa tub was really relaxing, although it took about half an hour to fill and the jets aren't placed in the best possible spots. The shower looks better than it works, but it had the built-in shower gels and stuff which was nice. They load you down with fluffy towels so there is never a need to ask for more. The breakfast is pretty awesome - cereal, orange juice, fruit, burritos, bagel sandwiches, toast, waffles, and oatmeal. Excellent stay. They also had complimentary wifi and board games to use. I would definitely come here again.
