Like many guests, we stayed here for the snooze and cruise package. It seemed a better deal than paying for parking at the dock and overall we were happy with our stay. The shuttle driver was very friendly and had us at the port in no time. The pick up did take a little longer than we expected (a bit over an hour after we first called). Overall it worked out very well. The property itself is a bit old and despite the owners best effort, that age shows in places. Our room was very large and the bed comfortable. Decor was Ikea style and easy enough on the eyes. One complaint was that the water pressure was terrible. I suppose we are likely to stay here again if cruising out of Long Beach, but doubt I would stop by again if I were just visiting the city.

We stayed here on a snooze and cruise package. $149.00 for 1 night, great breakfast, parking for 15 days and transportation to and from the port. The Hotel was very nice, the employees were all very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and we loved the shower. I would recommend this to anyone, especially if you are going on a cruise. Just the cost of parking would be more than we spent.

Room Tip: We were facing the golf course and it was rainy but it was the best view there I think.

We were looking for something different, unique... like a theme rm... to enter the New Year in! Everything we liked, was sold out! Luckily we found Hotel Current! It's just as described by the positives, An excellent choice! No complaints whatsoever! Love the special touches, as you see in the pictures, there's also a mirror inside on the closet door where the iron & ironing board is stored. Everything is great from the quality of the towels, pillows, coffee & magazines in rm. Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All rms look great but we chose a rm upstairs.

My husband and I got a good price and stayed for two nights. Here's what we thought:

Pro:
- price
- location: 15 minute drive from Disneyland, close to highways
- updated room with modern decor (bathroom was impressive)
- free wifi IN room
- friendly staff
- continental breakfast (good, not great)
- I heard that there is a free shuttle that will take guests anywhere within 5-mile radius. We didn't use this, but great amenity.

Con:
- AC/heater was really old and really loud. We had to turn it off just to make phone calls! Plus it worked poorly. It felt warm in our room even on high cool setting.
- Shower head had zero water pressure. It was like taking shower in the rain.
- The first night I had an allergic/hayfever reaction to the room. I was sneezing and getting itchy/watery eyes. There's no smoking, but I don't know... I had to take allergy medication to last the nights.
- Our room location was next to the housekeeping office and above hotel laundry and so there was audible staff noise early in the morning.

Overall: Decent hotel. A solid 3 stars. It's an old hotel that just got new paint and furniture. It could still use some upgrading - especially to that AC/heating unit.

We did the math and it was cheaper to stay overnight at the hotel and leave our car at the hotel than spend the $17 a day to park at the port. Hotel was comfortable and I like the modern updating. They provide breakfast in the morning and they shuttled us back and forth. The service was really good. Everything went as promised. This hotel seems to be ideally located for the harbor area.

The hotel was great and the design was very pleasing. Modern with a beach twist. I loved the room had hardwood floors. The only draw back is it's a bit far from downtown. They do have a shuttle that runs to the convention center. I would definitely stay here again.
