“Nice overall”
Reviewed August 13, 2007

After reading several reviews of different Huntington Beach properties, my family decided to choose this hotel for our stay. First, I must say that the initial impression wasn't that great. When we drove up, I was a little leary of the neighborhood. It isn't bad, but it is older and a little unkept. However, the rooms were very clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was more than we expected... boiled eggs, oatmeal, cold cereal, donuts, muffins, fruit bowls, fresh fruit, pastries, bagels, toast, hot chocolate, coffee, and tea. We filled up before going to the beach for the day. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised by the accomodations. The only negative I can see is that it is about three miles to the beach. I may try a closer hotel next time. It would have been easier to walk to the attractions, but for the price, it was worth the drive.

Not a glitzy place but was clean and pleasant. Jacuzzi room was very nice and Jacuzzi was super big, not just a bathtub with jets. Very nice continental breakfast with lots of variety. No complaints. Would stay again.

Very friendly front desk staff who let you use the computer to access the Internet in the lobby for free. The whole place is very dated and worn but is kept very clean and the King beds are very comfortable. Reasonably priced in comparison to places closer to the beach. it is about 3 miles from the beach and there are two malls about 20 mins away. The closer mall has a good Movie Theatre and Cheesecake factory. There is a continental breakfast at this hotel. It includes cereal, fruit cups, bagels, doughnuts and pastries, it is quite good!

I & wife enjoyed this place. room was good size & clean. we quickly got a crib for the little one at no charge. Nice contential breakfast with eating area. we had originally stayed in another Best western, but had to get out of that place. so we booked the remaining days at this place. i'd come here again. ocean only 1 1/2 miles away. with the savings of not being at hotels at beach area, U can quickly drive to beach & park cheaply and still save money.

My three friends and I stayed in this hotel for two nights in March. It was the second of 3 hotels we stayed in on our trip to Southern CA.

The location of the hotel was fine. It does not have a view of the ocean, nor is it within walking distance of the beach, but the beach is just a short drive away (about 2 miles). Beach Boulevard, the street on which this hotel is located, is a divided highway with lots of businesses and restaurants, but is not what I would consider a "walkable" street. I think the lack of good places within walking distance is the biggest downside of this hotel, but if you have a car, it's fine. Also, Main St. and the beach are a $7 or $8 cab ride away.

The staff at the BW Regency Inn were very friendly and helpful. They were always willing to supply extra towels, give directions, and suggestions of things to do. They provide a continental breakfast each morning with juice, milk, coffee, tea, donuts, cold cereal, toast, bagels, pastries, muffins, and fruit cups. It's not terrific, but definitely satisfactory.

The hotel has a pool and jacuzzi, both located outside. We didn't use them because we were busy and the weather was cold, but they looked clean and the pool was clearly heated. They also provide soda and snack machines outside, as well as a laundry room.

The rooms themselves were suprisingly large and very clean. They have all of the normal amenities: hair dryer, TV, coffee maker, fridge, etc. There is no microwave in the room, but you can use the one in the breakfast area. Entry to the rooms is from outside and the hotel has three levels. They provide an elevator and parking is free and convenient.

If you stay in Huntington Beach, it is definitely worthwhile to get off of Beach Boulevard and visit the Main Street area, where there are some cute shops and great restaurants. This place really exemplifies the Southern CA lifestyle, much more than "generic" beach Boulevard. My favorite restaurant on Main St. was the Huntington Beach Beer Co... I loved it there!

Overall, my experience at the BW Regency was a good one. The staff was helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious, the price was good, and the location a short drive to the beach and Main St. It would have been nice to stay within walking distance of the beach, but places like that are hard to come by in orange county when you're on a budget.

A simple, clean hotel without any frills. Don't get excited about the decor or the free breakfast, both could do with a lot more attention. It's also off the beaten track, you'll need a car to get to the beach, restaurants, etc. Pay a little extra & stay at the other Best Western.
