Almost cancelled our reservation because of some reviews here, and I'm really glad we didn't. We found the Broadlind to be not only beautiful and unique, but also perfectly clean and fairly quiet.

This is a historic hotel in downtown Long Beach, so you do get some evening neighborhood noise, mostly on the Linden Ave. side by the windows (which actually open!). But there is no "nightclub," no pulsing music. There's a Thai restaurant on the first floor and a wine bar across the street, and the "noise" is people having a good time - which you likely will too. The friendly cleaning staff does a great job; the old tile and fixtures have a few blemishes, of course, but our room was perfectly clean.

Only drawback - and worth consideration for seniors or those with physical limitations - is the lack of an elevator. Stairs are steep; plan accordingly. All in all, we would definitely go back.

Stayed one night while at a convention in Long Beach. The pros: room was clean, fairly easy to access, felt safe; cute restaurant downstairs and located on a fun block. The cons: no concierge or desk for help; cannot check into the room until 4 pm; the room is tiny (like Ikea tiny house tiny); the block is cute, but I wasn't willing to venture much beyond; it's walkable to the convention center, but not really if you have any luggage or heels; internet is not stable (worked part of the evening, gone the rest of the time); it's not ADA friendly at all; and as others have mentioned, the walls are very thin (you can see the light in the gaps of the door to the hallway).

If I were looking for a cute, historic, hotel for a night or two (it's really too small for anything more) for a young adventurous person or couple, this would be a fine, fairly inexpensive hotel for that. For a business trip, or for someone who is looking for a vacation hotel to be able to relax in, this is not it. I'll be back to Long Beach in the future for business travel but won't go back here and would not recommend it.

We stayed here after a long day of air travel in order to put ourselves strategically close to the terminal for departure on a two week cruise. We needed a simple, comfortable room and a good night's sleep.

What we got was a last minute change to a much less nice room which looked like a barely worked over boarding house room complete with 1970's kitchenette and disco music from the bar downstairs until well past midnight (which for our timezone meant well past 2am).

We can say their potentially risky system of only providing door codes and not necessarily having staff on site if there is a problem actually works amazingly well and we had no problems with the locks.

The historic stairs are quite tricky if you have more than one piece of luggage as you can't fit one on each side of your body between the railings.

We were going to stay here for one night and had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances. They make you put a $300 deposit down before you even arrive so they can swindle you out of it in whatever way they want to.

We tried REPEATEDLY to reach them multiple days in advance of our reservation and received absolutely no response. I’m talking by phone, email, text, everything. They didn’t get back to me once about a single thing I asked, even before we decided to cancel.

There is absolutely nothing about their cancelation policy anywhere on their website. When we finally reached out to Booking.com, they put in a request to the hotel to wave the fee, and the hotel refused. They said they will take $210 out of our deposit because it’s within 24hrs of the reservation. First of all, it was not. And second of all, we tried for DAYS to cancel this reservation. Nobody works here and they just look for any way to take as much money from you as possible. Do not stay here. There are lots of bad reviews from people who did stay here too. Run far away!! Wish I could give them zero stars tbh.

I reserved the stay for 1 day prior to my cruise. I received the confirmation email and room#206 the access code didn't work the panel would light green then a few seconds later turn red I texted and called the number given #833-782-9522 and received no response. After a few hours I made new arrangements and stayed at Staybridge Suites. Received an email when I got back from cruise asking how was my stay. I've filled a dispute with my credit card company and letting social media do the rest in regards to Broadlind Hotel.

Just want to express my appreciation for this exceptional historic hotel. I stayed in the one-bedroom suite with my friend for their birthday weekend and it was perfect! The room was very clean and the location was perfect for us to eat and go out. I definitely recommend the Broadlind!

Cockroaches cockroaches cockroaches! Small and dirty, in a filthy part of town! Parking is difficult! Service and response is very difficult! Do not stay here.

They won’t respond, they won’t help, they don’t come to clean. Homeless and trash everywhere!

Stayed here last Sun 11/11 on the way to a Disneyland trip with family. Chose the Long Beach because my niece lives in the nearby & would be joining. Hotel has a cool Historical vibe, the room sizes are moderate and the bathrooms are very small. There is also no front desk or immediate point of contact should there be an issue. Woke up the next morning to get ready @ 7am & found that the shower did not work. I immediately texted what number I did have, but then was referred to another number for the manager. I didn’t have time to call or wait until someone would come, so I did the best to get ready and thought I would email the manager asap after I was on the road. The response was incredibly poor and lacked any sense of customer service or empathy ...

“Thank you for your understanding as well. Myself and maintenance went to inspect the unit yesterday after your checkout and the shower was working fine. There are 3 knobs to the shower and the one that disperses water needed to be turned entirely to one direction to turn on. This bathroom has been remodeled brand new since the Summer and we have been fully booked the past months, with no shower issue.
I do apologize for the sink water temperature and that was fixed immediately. Our plumbing at the hotel has all been newly upgraded. And as a busy hotel, we are constantly maintaining our plumbing to ensure our guests have adequate water flow.
Unfortunately I am not able to issue any refund considering that the shower was working and the sink was a quick maintenance fix. I understand your concern and we are confident to address every issue in a quick timely manner.”

Apparently I don’t know how to use the shower fixtures properly - despite having a commercial/ residential interior design background for the past 15 years. I tried turning all 3 knobs without any results. I also didn’t want a full refund, but maybe a suggestion of a partial refund for the inconvenience? And as for the plumbing upgrade - the trim around the handles weren’t even properly installed leaving the piping in the walls exposed.

Just a super warning letting you know that this establishment is not a place I will be recommending to any family or friends in the future.

We wanted to try something different. Nice location, but next time think we will stick with Hilton/Hyatt family of hotels. Please be aware that hotel has no elevators, so if you have a room on the 3rd floor like we did, be prepared to haul your bags up multiple flights of stairs. If you arrive prior to the check in time of 4 pm, they will hold your bags for 45 dollars.

Hotel is in great location, walking distance to many shopping, dining and nightlife options.

Room was on the smaller side, but served its purpose.

I stayed at the Broadlind while attending a conference and was pleased with the newly remodelled rooms, great location, amazing juice bar downstairs and terrific coffee around the corner. The building has great features and is original, if you want an experience that's different from the horrible canned modern hotel experience. I recommend the Broadlind. A++ I will definitely return to the Broadlind. Super helpful staff, too.
