Marriott Rooms were $157.00, Other hotels rate was less than Best Western. However, this was a last minute decision. The host hotel rate was $50.00 a night less than Best Western Plus. However, it served the purpose since it was last minute. My friend enjoyed the stay also. We were not expecting Breakfast. This was a nice treat and certainly... More

Nice place in Long Beach,this one is, and the overall quality is right up there, maybe surpassing with Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn. Going to be honest here, for years I avoided BWs on business and family travel because I got jammed in a few shabby rooms. Maybe it's because most my travel is back east - but the BWs out... More

This is a best western but they have raised the bar. The location is great, the hotel is modern and very very clean. My room was very nice, I'm pretty spoiled with hotels and I actually had an opportunity to move to the big Renaissance down the street with other travelers and declined. I was there on business so didn't... More

My daughter and I stayed here two nights for a gymnastics competition. The room decor and overall hotel cleanliness were excellent. The staff was helpful and friendly. The parking was convenient (though it should be for $15/day). We were able to walk to anything we needed in the area (attractions, shopping, food and the competition). The only area that I... More

My family and I celebrated our 5th year family reunion in Long Beach, CA. It was five wonderful nights at the Best Western Plus hotel. The manager, Shawn, was so kind and made sure that our accommodations were beyond satisfactory. The staff were very courteous, and whatever we needed they were just a phone call away, in other words, the... More

The pool is the size of a bath tub and the fitness center has basically nothing but cardio. They also don't run the AC throughout the building. It's cooler outside than inside. Very uncomfortable. Would recommend somewhere else for sure. We were here for business and I had to change suit shirts due to sweating through my shirts multiple times... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior that looks small. A thoroughly modern hotel with all of the amenities await inside! Newly redone rooms and bathroom with fine finishing. A decent breakfast with lots of selection. It has it all. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Business trip. Stayed at a Best Western several times before. This hotel was clean, staff was efficient. This hotel is conveniently located in the middle of town. Lots of restaurants near by and I would definitely stay at Best Western again.

Our stay at this hotel was made all the better due to both the front desk staff and the General Manager Shawn Jones who seemed to be there all day and night.
