My son goes to Long Beach State, and whenever golfing at the course across the street for the last 2 years when I visit him, I have thought that the Guest House looked nice and would give it a try. Once is now enough. The room was outdated, and with spartan amenities (slab mattress, one ripped blanket, flat pillows, about 8-10 total channels on the cable TV, cheap soap/shampoo/in room coffee, broken hairdryer, terrible bathroom lighting). Traffic noise on the PCH was very noticeable starting at about 6:30 am. It's in need of an upgrade and better overall attention to detail - or, drop the price to a Travelodge-type level of $59-$69/night, and it would be an OK value. But at $100, it was out of its league (there are remarkably better options in town for just $20 or so more, like the Marriott Courtyard in downtown). Airport shuttle does not run until 7 am on weekedays - I had a 6:45 flight, so it was of no use to me - and the two women at the front desk did not even know about prices for cabs or outside shuttle services. Another desk clerk in the evening couldn't give me directions to Dodger Stadium - she just thought it was called something else now. I like the city of Long Beach, it has an old S.Cal natural style that is more down to earth than L.A. - but it can be enjoyed better from a different hotel.
