Had an excellent time here for the US Sumo international tournament and really felt the venue in and of itself was excellent for collegiate sports. Will try to make it to a basketball or volleyball game for LBSU in the future

We attended a political gathering where our Congressional Representative spoke and had a Q & A session. It was wonderful to be able to hear and see without difficulty. We understand that it's used for many types of activities.

Could anyone tell me a nice hotel to stay not to far away from The Walter Pyramid in Long Beach? Thank you.

The problem is that Cal State Long Beach is located primarily in a residential / suburban part of Long Beach and there really aren't very many hotels in the area. There are some cheap motels, but I wouldn't feel comfortable recommending any of them. There is a Marriott at the Long Beach Airport which is very nice and I think you would be very satisfied there. It's about 2.5 miles away from the Pyramid, so it's pretty close.
