Close to where you need to be in Long Beach. Very friendly staff and complimentary coffee , pastry and fruit. Very small room and bath but it was good enough for one night . Might be a stretch for a few days. Free WIFI. I would stay again. This place was recommended by a travel agent and I think it... More

The minute we arrived, we were cheerfully greeted by the owner Larry. Check -in was allowed early, and we were happily escorted to our room, with help for our bags...since this Hotel is from the 1920's no elevators are available. The room was SPARKLING clean! The rooms are small...but, I liked it...it's like getting a hug when traveling away from... More

The rooms are TEENY TINY. About 8 x 10. Barely enough room for a full sized bed. But that's OK. We only wanted a place to lay our head. The shower is a decent size with plenty of hot water. Nice flat screen TV on the wall and plenty of cable channels. The room was very clean and the bed... More

Saw this online and knew it was for me. Amazing renovation of a historic hotel. Loved the simplicity of décor and efficient use of space. Quality linens, super comfy bed, wine social in the evening. You will not find more attentive, personable staff, they remember your name and greet you daily. Convenient location downtown with a free shuttle to take... More

When I walked into this adorable boutique hotel (which is located just one block away from the street with practically every notable restaurant on it) I was met by a lovely person who brewed me a cup of coffee and checked me in. My room was cozy, modern, clean, and quiet. The hotel provides free wifi, 2 Keurig machines with... More

When arriving, my first thought was that my room was small without a lot of amenities but as time went on, this hotel showed itself as an amazing place to stay! I was attending a conference which was a 10 minute walk where all of the food and entertainment I needed was readily available. When it came time to retire... More

The Varden is a fabulous boutique hotel run by attentive owners and staff. We loved the remodel of this small hotel - understated and kept to original design. Very clean with high quality bedding and towels. Good continental breakfast, with Kpod coffees and teas. They even offered us complimentary wines in the evening! Location is great, an easy walk to...

We stayed at the Varden on Jan. 6th & 7th 2016 and were very pleased and impressed with the Service, the rooms and the People who run this small Boutique hotel. The rooms are not large but more than adequate and very clean, The location in downtown Long Beach makes it perfect for those who want to be close to... More

This was hands down one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. Granted I wasn't spending a lot of time around a pool or in my room but its located nicely and had amazing beds. The most important factor was the customer service. When I pulled into this hotel in my taxi, the staff was out the door to... More

Had a quick overnight here and didn't get to enjoy the wine tasting or other amenities. Hotel has a nice vibe and boutique style. Check in was easy and friendly. Room was clean with bright white everything and small (as expected), but arranged in a way that was comfy (great bed) and worked well. Breakfast in the morning was coffee,... More
