“Good Value For South Long Beach”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Elevator: had to push on the button the entire time while riding up and down to and from the 4th floor and the door opened on every floor. The lobby isn't too impressive, though there was a nice bug Christmas tree put up once thanksgiving was over.

Bed was comfortable and room was large. No cramped furniture here! The room had two sinks, one was in the bathroom and then there was another one right before the bathroom which is handy if you are are staying here with another person. But my tub shower leaked water, though there was no issue with hot water. Could here exactly what people were saying next door. Service was okay, but the first night which was Thanksgiving there was loud music coming from the PCH club. It was less heard with the balcony door closed. We were even able to see the fireworks from Disneyland between two buildings. There were more people staying the first night, seemed a lot of people cleared out Friday morning, so it was way noisier than Saturday when we checked out.

Lots to do nearby, we drove around stooping and looking at Dexter filming locations. The first night went to nearby Seal Beach for Thanksgiving. The next day, went to Schooner or Later for lunch which was good.

Room Tip: Marina view room isn't so noisy as a street facing room.

Everything you need is here for a cheaper overnight stay .. Practical and comfortable. Rooms have microwave and fridge and if you stay in rooms 236-239 the sun beams into the balcony doors in the morning.. Hot breakfast at the sailing club is plentiful and with a lot of variety ., wifi is ok., not glam but very accommodating! Staff really friendly too! :)

I was back at the Golden Sails last week and was pleased to find not much had changed in the two years since my last stay. The staff is still awesome and the complimentary full breakfast is even better.

If you enjoy working out this a great place. They have a decent fitness room and free passes to a local fitness center that has everything. For runners it's a scenic two mile jog past the marine stadium and boat-lined canal to the beachfront run/bike path.

Stayed at this hotel for a business meeting in September.
Hotel was very average.
The location is good; on a main highway and about 10 minutes to downtown Long Beach. Less than a half hour from the Long Beach Airport.
The room was a decent size, clean but a bit outdated.
The breakfast, offering cold and hot items, was good.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I usually stay at budget hotels, and decided to splurge and go for something more expensive. What a waste of money! This place is creepy old and has a bar/lounge attached. The elevator stopped on the 2nd floor no matter which direction you were going. Tried taking the stairs and they were dark and dripping something foul in my hair. They gave me an upgrade to a room with a kitchen - which had an old broken stove. There were no dishes and a bar of facial soap. Two sliding doors that looked out to the very busy Highway so they couldn't be left open.
Nice staff, pretty decent breakfast in the bar next door. Comfy bed. Didn't feel very safe there.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room on the inside. Or don't stay at all.

This hotel has been around for years but has been updated. It may be time for a little overhaul of the rooms but it is extremely clean and the grounds in front are beautiful. It has a great complementary breakfast and a very nice bar that is rocking @ night. Very close to all thing So Cal. The best part is the staff. They are all amazing.

We stayed in a Holiday Inn three nights prior to going to this hotel. We were trying to get closer to the Long Beach Convention center for the last half of our stay in the area. We paid $10 less per night at the Holiday Inn, ten miles down the road, just so there is no price comparison.
This property is VERY old, smells musty and is run down in general. You can only paint and put new carpet in for so long before whats underneath needs to be fixed. The furniture in the lobby even looks really old.
DON'T LET THE PICTURES FOOL YOU! Unless you pay for the more expensive rooms in the actual hotel, you will get a MOTEL room with rickety stairs and an even scarier balcony. The rooms are tiny.
I will state that they did have a microwave and a fridge.
They were however dusty and smelled old and musty.
We left within a half an hour of arriving, thanks to Booking.com we got our money back and we went back to a different Holiday Inn which was just as nice as the first one. I'd definitely recommend either of those hotels... Not this one though!
