“Mostly a Good Experience”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

With the exception of one issue, the hotel was in a great part of town, rooms were clean and neat, staff were friendly. The issue centered around a lack of response from the Manager concerning a need for her to investigate something missing from the room.

So I booked this hotel at a reasonable price. Which I couldn't believe how low I had gotten it for. Went to a Marsha Ambrosius concert at Gaslamp and wanted a place to lay my head after and The Best Western at The Convention Center did just what I needed them to do. I was welcomed with a goofy bag and a thank you card. THE FRONT DESK was exceptional especially Michelle checking me in and Miriam checking me out. I LOVE THIS BEST WESTERN AND I WILL ALWAYS CONTINUE TO COME BACK FOR THE EXCELLENT SERVICE……

Read properly the hotels policies and for all its amenities.. some will be surprised regarding the $ 10/daily parking..but like all the hotels in long beach they charge parking fees even for hotel guest. I stayed for one night in Queen Mary hotel ,Long beach and I have to pay $ 17/daily for self parking. If you've done your homework you know most hotels in the area charge for parking..except for some which have higher hotel fees off course so you get free parking. I don't like it but I've noticed in most downtown cities I've been to they let you pay parking even though you are a guest ...comfortable beds, clean rooms, good breakfast but small space, nice staff ,replaced toiletries daily, if I need to buy water or food the hotel is walking distance to VONS a grocery store popular in the LA area. Nothing to see much after a day or two in long beach.I will definitely recommend this hotel if anybody is looking for a cheap,clean,free breakfast and downtown location

Hotel is located in the downtown beach area and is an excellent location. Close the water, great restaurants on Pine Street and fantastic bars. Incredible steak house and sea food. Amazing Mexican…very high end. Very safe area to walk around and enjoy

My husband and I were on vacation and chose the Best Western Plus. We were very pleasantly surprised. It was a great location. The staff were very helpful. The hotel is approximately two blocks from the beach. My husband and I thought about it, and we can't think of one thing to complain about. The free buffet breakfast was very good. There was a wide choice of items to choose from. (We found a grocery store, across the street, which was convenient for picking up some items we needed.) We have family in Long Beach and we will stay here again.

Great spot! Excellent location in Long Beach. Had a second floor room with a nice view of the street. It was an enjoyable experience from the start with very friendly front desk staff. The room was very nice, clean and welcoming. Sadly, the beds were doubles and for two adults and two teens, it was 'cozy.' Breakfast was good but there was very limited seating and had to bring breakfast back to the room.
