“Great hotel in San Pedro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We stayed at this hotel prior to a cruise. The neighborhood was ok. We felt safe enough to walk a couple of blocks to a restaurant during the day but wouldn't do it at night.The staff was very nice and helpful. Gave us a recommendation for an Italian restaurant and it was very, very good. This hotel is great for an over night stay before a cruise. I probably wouldn't stay here if I was going to be there more than a night - mainly because of the location. They did take us to the port on cruise day, so that was wonderful.

My friend was retiring on the USS Iowa Battleship Museum. This hotel is only one mile from the USS Iowa. I was able to check in early and relax before the evening's events. The bungalow was freshly renovated and the staff was outstanding. The full breakfast in the morning was a plus.

The hotel is great with really big rooms and high 9ft + ceilings. Staff are very nice as well. The location is good being close to the San Pedro cruise ship terminal. Also just a 20 min bus ride into Long Beach.
Nice bar and huge restaurant space in the hotel, which would be nice to see in use. It could serve as a nice place to eat out at night and have a drink at the bar for both hotel guests and others.
Outside hot tub and pool are also very nice, set back in a quiet location at the back of the hotel.
The room finishes are great with nice furniture and great beds. I am told it was recently re-modeled before opening as a Best Western, nice job!

Room Tip: All would be good, facing the back of the hotel quieter though I imagine. We had a room at the back...

Very nice hotel and the manager, George, was one of the most helpful managers I've come across. I was paying with my points and the computer just did not want to do that. George worked tirelessly and would not give up getting that done for me. I was there to visit my daughter who works on a cruise ship and was in port in San Pedro. The location was perfect, close to the harbor. Thanks again for a great stay.

Nice hotel in a not-so-great neighborhood (shooting 4 blocks away our first night there!). Very clean, nice rooms with comfortable beds. The "king suite" I had was smaller than I expected but still got the job done. The breakfast is basic - eggs, sausage, muffins, juice, etc, but the make your own waffles was a really nice touch. Currently no restaurant or bar on site and if you don't have a car then your options are fast food and those places close early. The little downtown is about a 10 minute walk away but definitely not a walk I'd recommend at night.

The neighborhood was a little rundown and had some homeless were near the hotel. Also, reservation was not available upon check-in. Had to pull up my computer and call BW to straighten out. Wanted to grab something quick to go for breakfast but warm breakfast was not ready when I came down and there were no paper plates only hard plates and silverware, so I went to a drive thru. Had some problems with wi-fi and I'm a techie, but I decided to give up after a few tries. Overall the staff was friendly and the rooms were immaculate but the other items could not overcome some of the negatives.
