“Great price, uneven shuttle service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

The hotel current has very nice rooms, is in a decent location, and has several restaurants nearby (I recommend the Crooked Duck) so it was good for a week long business trip. The only negative is the spotty van service. In the morning the Long Beach airport shuttle leaves every 30 minutes, or more accurately, it is scheduled every 30 minutes. When it departs is always guess, even when the van driver is sitting in the office. Quite often the shuttle left at :05, :10, and even :15 minutes late. They do shuttle within 5 miles of the hotel during off times, which is good, but just be aware when you schedule that it may or may not be ready to leave at the pre-arranged time.

I chose this place as I had stayed here before. Though it had changed names and decor. I asked for a handicapped room as mom uses a walker and wheelchair. Bathroom was handicap friendly but beds were not. They were almost a foot up off the ground. I had to go to front desk to get a step stool but it was still difficult for 90 year old to get into bed. I ended up having to toss her up in it.
Also at 7:00 am the gardeners decided to cut down a palm tree outside my door. Not very relaxing.

This hotel is in a good location, near UC Long Beach. The price compare to other hotels in the area was very reasonable. The furniture looks very modern in style. It has plenty of parking spots. The beds are comfortable seem clean. There is wifi and fridge in the room. The thing that turn me off though is carpet is really dirty. I took off my shoes before going into the room and my sock is black the next morning. Never had problem like this in other hotels. I can only guess they don't clean their carpet much. The free breakfast is not all that great, but at least there are fresh fruits.

Great little spot close to UC Long Beach! The location was perfect for events at the University. An easy walk to UC Long Beach as well as parks and some fun little restaurants. We enjoyed our stay in a comfy room!

My husband and I booked a room for our vacation. My husband noticed after the first night(after the renewal of the second night) that his account had been charged for a smoking fee, no one from management contacted us to advise us about there assumptions. but instead allowed us to renew the room with them the following night, We were so upset that we went to book a room at the Residence Inn, instead of staying there...why would you allow someone who smoked in your facility renew at your hotel? This place is only out to get money!! I contacted management 3-4 times to try and resolve this issue or to atleast allow us to do a walk through to determine what made them assume someone had smoked in the room. After several attempts management(Wayne) called back stating that the staff smelled smoke on my husband during check in....WHY WOULD YOU RENT A ROOM TO SOMEONE AND YOU SMELL SMOKE !!!! This will be my first and last experience dealing with the current hotel..ONLY MARRIOTT OR HILTON HOTELS...BEWARE OF THIS HOTEL

I brought my daughter down for freshman orientation at Long Beach and this hotel is just minutes away. Staff was very friendly upon check in. Rooms are clean and spacious. King spa suite might be ok if you're traveling alone or as a couple, but there is literally a shower curtain separating the toilet area from the living area. Not much privacy. Breakfast was standard fare, but plenty to choose from. Pool area is gorgeous. The A/C drowns out much of the noise from other guests or PCH.
