“Decent place, handy location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

i have been traveling to Long Beach every two or three weeks for a year and have settled upon this place for its cleanliness, value, and location. it is very close to the Pine Avenue district, a block or so from a Von's grocery, etc. Breakfast is average. Best Western elite members park free. There's a decent sandwich shop/deli in the same building. the staff is friendly and helpful, and the free wireless signal is decent.

My boyfriend and I just recently spent the weekend here where we were granted an
early check in due to our flight arriving earlier than expected. Our room was great.
Clean, comfy, and with a fantastic balcony overlooking the street and beach right down
the block. Our free continental breakfast was amazing for something that required no
money out of your pocket and if it wasn't to your liking there are plenty of restaurants
nearby more suitable. The staff was friendly and their parking deck was great for those
with cars. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would most definitely go back. For the
price you most definitely cannot go wrong.

Good room , good rate , but breakfast was a little lacking - Breakfast was scheduled for 6:30 , but nothing seemed to be ready , out of coffee - No hot items except waffles .. Otherwise a good night's rest ..

Room Tip: Any room is fine , right downtown near everything!

I stay at this hotel while I attend swim meets at Belmont Shores. Every year I stay at this hotel it gets better! The location is near many restaurants and shops, a large grocery store, everything you need. Check-in was quick, the room was extremely clean (and I'm very picky). Only one guest computer in the lobby, but it was always available. Parking ($10/night) is the most convenient of any place I've stayed. I didn't take advantage of the free breakfast so can't report on it. Sign up for Best Western rewards program and you can get great deals on room prices.

Good location in center of downtown Long Beach. Close to the Marina and Aquarium. I found the hotel clean and neat. Good continental breakfast included scrambled eggs with bacon one day sausage the next. Eating area needs more tables but there are lounge chairs and coffee tables in the lobby and these can be used if the tables in the eating area fill up. Close-by Von's grocery and lots of great restaurants within easy walking distance. Free internet worked great in my room. Did not like having to pay $10 per day for parking in the hotel garage. That should be included.

Well located with very friendly and helpful reception staff. Room was spacious with comfortable beds and nice linens. Good standard of cleanliness. I would certainly recommend this hotel and would have no hesitations in returning if I am ever in the area.
Great restaurants nearby and would highly recommend George's Greek Cafe.

The room was very clean and comfortable. Best 3 star chain we have ever stayed in. The breakfast was not great. But that was as expected. There were several coffee shops and cafes right outside the hotel. I'm glad we did not waste money on a 4 or 5 star hotel, cos this was a perfect pitch stop at a great price.
