“Disappointed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We got in this Inn with a traveler's coupon to get a cheaper rate. Our coupon was refused and we got a normal rate. Anyway, we were on the road, it was late and we accepted. The room was barely ok: the bed was decent as well as the bathroom but he couch was torn and the carpet was stained! The worst part was the breakfast, well, what they call breakfast: an awful orange juice with tiny industrial muffins and not tables to sit! Run away from this place, it's not worth the money.

So on the internet the pictures make The Inn of Long Beach look like a decent motel. Their amenities include a continental breakfast. But when we arrived we realized that the pictures are either old, or photo shopped to look better than real life!! The kind of people that were there, were a little scary and the "continental" breakfast included little powder sugared donuts like Hostess kind, and little store bought packaged mini muffins. The "juice" was Sunny Delight! Needless to say we went over to the very nice Vons across the street and got some decent breakfast! The clerk was nice, but that was about all that was good about this hotel. Well, that and the fact that it was close to downtown. It was not worth $80/night!!!! I would not return to stay there!!

The good:
front desk david, I think was his name. Great hospitality! Pool large and theirs a spa. Free parking, vons across the street---nicest vons I have ever been to!!!! Small porch.
Fridge in room. Micro and coffee in lobby. For new years eve $90 total cost. Tv had lots of channels. Close to nightlife

Cons. The room is as dilapidated as it gets. Terrible beds. Very very worn and cheapest linens and towels u can ever use.
Wifi works in lobby. Easily the worst room I have ever been in! Coulda been cause it was a smoking room and I don't smoke.

A 50's style motel with exterior walkways and doors from the outside straight into the rooms. Just like you see in the movies, usually being used by fugitives from the law / mob / aliens / wronged spouses / supernatural horrors etc. . Very basic, decor a little tired, shower a little tempremental but it had a central pool and a hot-tub and the air-con, though ancient, did the trick well enough. Taken altogether it was fun but not for those who insist on luxury or sophistication.
Very conveniently located opposite a new 'Vons' supermarket (open 'til midnight) just a few minutes walk from the beach, the Pike for restaurants, cinema and marina, and the downtown shops and restaurants. The metro Blue Line is only a couple of blocks away and takes you right into downtown LA in about 55 minutes.
One for young and youngish travellers with a laid-back attitude.

Room Tip: try to get a room facing east as westyerly facing ones get HOT.

A dirty run down motel with arrogant rude owners has no business advertising itself as an "Inn"!

There are so many nicer places to stay in this neighborhood than this; sad because it has potential to be a great place

The service was excellent. The rooms do need upgrading, but they are excellent for the price. The pool And spa were a bit cold. The location is great, it is close to the free bus lines. It is easy to get where you want to go.

I visited Long Beach for a Conference at the Convention Center, and the Inn was recommended by a friend of mine. They are about 7 short blocks from the Convention Center (walking distance.) The woman at the front desk let me leave my luggage in the employee storage room after checkout, so I could explore a bit . There are several restaurants that are close. The rooms are slightly dated, but they were clean. It has better rates than most places in the surrounding area.
