Stayed one night in a queen room on third floor. Yep, rooms are small, but still had enough space for the two of us. Very clean, and surprisingly quiet (our room faced the front). Nice natural light with all the windows, and loved that the windows still open for fresh air. Super nice folks! Talk about customer service; always a... More

This a quaint yet modern boutique hotel, nicely located a block or so from the main street of Long Beach. Parking is available right next to the hotel for $12 per day and whilst the rooms are compact, they're comfortable and with all that is required unless you were staying for an extended stay, in which case the lack of...

I enjoy living in a small town so whenever I visited this area of California, I have always been disappointed. I randomly found The Varden Hotel on my last trip and was blown away from the moment I first walked in. The employees were exceptionally gracious, always referring to me by name and offering me a drink. My room was... More

Despite what the helpful front desk clerk told us, "boutique" in this case meant small. The hotel bills itself as a boutique hotel and describes it's rooms as minimalist. I would use the words tiny and small. To be fair, the service provided by the staff is superb. They offer to do anything and everything that you need from unloading... More

The staff, Tracy and Norman, set a great tone immediately. They were very accommodating and provided helpful information for our trip. Our room was very clean, cozy and quiet. Also, enjoyed the lovely breakfast area. Great fresh muffins!

When we arrived Larry and Norman greeted us and we were so impressed by the customer service and making us feel very welcomed it was a beautiful restored 1920s building with an amazing mural on the side of the building that made us feel very much at home (as we are from Melbourne) we were there for a conference and...

It's a small hotel. I think 45 rooms. Staff is really, really nice and helpful. I have stayed in many hotels and this is definitely the most pleasant stay. Staff genuinely wanted you to feel comfortable and welcome. Room was small/compact but very nice. Bed was comfortable. In the evening they had snacks and wine. Only negative was that when... More

Of the hotels I’ve stayed in over the last several years, the Varden Hotel is one of my favorites. Of course, your response to the place will depend on what you prefer in a hotel. If you want large-scale luxury, this is not the place. But if you prefer beautifully-designed intimacy and personality (I do) then the Varden will please... More

Although we were only there for 2 nights, it was an excellent experience. This hotel is unique in its own right. The all white and mirror decor adds brightness into the room. The customer service was great! I truly enjoyed my stay here.
