Stayed for a convention end of January and was pleasantly surprised. Husband disappointed though 'cause he thought it had a water view, closer to convention center and "balcony" overlooks courtyard between hotel and apts. next door. Breakfast nicer than average with eggs, waffles, etc. and beats the usual fare of donuts, boxed juice and coffee. Room was clean. Bummer we had to pay for parking. Husband had bad back and I had bad knee so walk to convention center was a little too much for me -- it's not as close as the hotel description leads it to be especially if you're tired/injured/not feeling well after working a trade show -- he had to go get the car and pick me up on return trip 1st day. Enjoyed the sun though!

I reserved a room at this hotel on Hotwire and was pleasantly surprised! The grounds around the hotel were exceptionally clean. In fact, they were cleaning the floor of the parking garage when we checked out the next morning. The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating! Although this hotel was rated a 3 star property, It was as nice as some 4 star properties I have stayed at. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Although our stay here was just a stopover on our way to San Diego after a late flight into Los Angeles, the location of the hotel seemed to be ideal for visiting Long Beach. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Long Beach.

A good value for a best western plus stay in long beach about. 5 blocks from the convention center. Appealing hot breakfast was a welcome change from the standard continental fare! Got a managers rate. The best value was on the best western website. It is also close to the harbor, queen mary, and long beach aquarium. Cheers

Good stay, good business hotel, but not adjacent to the Convention Center as the name implies. Friendly service and a surprisingly big and good breakfast that was included, including scrambled and hard cooked eggs, waffles, etc. etc. Actually a great value.

Room Tip: Inner court room is nice and quiet on a Saturday night
