“An affordable very nice hotel.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were wonderfully pleased with this Hotel. It was clean, modern, well equipped. Beautiful pool, Continental breakfast included as well as shuttle service to many locations. Perhaps the two most remarkable features were a desk clerk (Leanne) who was extremely courteous, helpful and good humored, the other was the shuttle service, to and from the cruise ships to Catalina,(avoid parking fees) local restaurants, museums, etc. Be sure to mention AAA membership for another discount. Use online reservations. Book directly on their website. Membership Code: LOYAL They will match lower rates.

Room Tip: King rooms are off parking lot, no problem. Rooms near pool can possibly be noisier.

Green Features: Bathrooms are obvious for being environmentally friendly. You will love the sink and the rain shower.

Nice modern type rooms. Loved the extra large bathroom with 2 separate areas. Pool area was nice. My only concerns, there should be some type of hooks in the bathroom to hang towels to be used again rather than supplying with new towels and did not think that the AC should be turned off each time they clean the room? We were out all day and it was really hot outside and was looking forward to coming back to a comfortable room. I was surprised to find that the AC was turned off and it was warmer in the room than it was outside. The breakfast was decent, not over the top, but decent. I would stay again!

The overall appearance was nice. A modern, dressed up Motel. The bathroom décor was very nice and I enjoyed the rain shower head and spacious tiled shower. But that is where it ended... When we first arrived it was hot and muggy so we turned on the AC. We left to go out for dinner and when we came back, there was no change in the room. The AC was crap! We had to sit there with the window and door open to try and air out the room. Then you have the beds, you are basically sleeping on a hard, futon mattress placed in a wood box frame. It was cramped and very uncomfortable. We barely had any sleep. The continental breakfast was mediocre... the worst scrambled eggs (if you can call them that) rubber waffles and stale cereal. Thank goodness the coffee was decent and they had Coffee Mate Vanilla Creamer. We left our car at the hotel while we went on a 4 day cruise, for an additional $25. We were able to take a shuttle to the port, but when it came time to go back to the hotel we were told we would be waiting for at least an hour, so we decided to take a cab, the cost came out to about $23 plus tip. I would not likely stay here again.

Room Tip: Be sure to only have one person per bed... even then it is still uncomfortable.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms were very comfy. Got lucky enough to get and upgrade to a jacuzzi room which I took full advantage of. The pool was nice and empty whenever my wife and I used it. It was closed for maintenance on one of the days I was there which was disappointing but there were notices up at least. Being a Pet friendly hotel was one of the draws as we did bring our dog with us. All the staff we met were friendly too. It's not all that close to the beach but it wasn't too far from long beach airport. They have a shuttle too, which took us to the Queen Mary. Pretty good value for the money. I would most likely stay here again.

I was Looking for a hotel close to the long Beach University because of a tournament. I Had a great stay in this Hotel, for 6 days and It was really nice. The Staff was very helpful at the front desk, I ordered some stuffs in the internet and sent to the hotel, they received the packages and gave to me without any costs. The breakfast is excellent, with fruits, cereals, coffee, milk and waffles. The room is clean and nice with two king size comfortable beds. The bathroom looks very nice with a big hot shower. I didn´t like the parking lot, although it had lot of space, the parking slots were small. Overall, I would recomend this hotel.

I stayed there for 2 weeks and did not a full night of sleep. Always banging of door, do not stay on ground floor rooms!! Then the housekeeping crew will throw everything while cleaning. I was so nervous always with all that noise. Did not like it sorry!

Nice clean "green" hotel. Shuttle service to the Long Beach Convention Center was very convenient. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. It would have been nice to have more electrical outlets. The rain shower was strange and made it difficult to shower without your head getting wet!
