My wife and I stayed for one night, on our visit to California. It was centrally located, to where we were visiting, and the AAA rates were very reasonable.
We had never visited the area before and thought it would be a unique place to stay. We were absolutely correct! Loved everything about it! It has such history and style. The whole ship just feels special. The room was perfect. Not too big and not too small. The working portholes and view of the harbor were a nice touch. Sure things are dated and might look like they need some TLC, but that is part of the charm. Everything was clean, the service at the restaurants was great, and the food was very good too.
We didn't do any tours, as we prefer to wander on our own. I think the tours would be nice for people who enjoy that type off thing.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we ended up back again, the next night, since we had no previous plans to stay at another location. This time the room was a bit bigger, and felt even more grand. It is hard to imagine the feeling of being on something with such history, without actually experiencing it for yourself. I assure you, if you are a history buff, and enjoy ships, this is a home run.
We certainly will be back if our travels lead us to Long Beach again.
