Was on a tight budget for a quick 1-night stay on Long Beach .. however, on the other hand, couldn't be in too rough-it a situation. The peace of mind element. Well, this hotel, and yes, Edwin, whom so many write about on this forum, and by which I guided to make my hotel choice, this did it. He even was on the phone with me talking me thru my being briefly lost on the local streets of Long Beach, just shy of racing to my appointment there. I arrived middle of the night, was checked in with an alert and friendly manner by the night desk person. Breakfast options great, room very clean, spacious. Would definitely stay here again, will definitely stay here again and recommend.
