“Unexpected Pleasure”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We have stayed at other Super 8's that were ok but this one was close to the top of the ladder.
They have a Happy Hour every night at 5 with free snacks and wine. The outdoor pool is great and just the right eemperature. The real highlight though is the manager, Edwin. He has a great sense of humor and is Mr. Neat. He sets up the great breakfast and makes sure nothing runs out. They have waffles. I kiddingly asked what kind of eggs he had and he said, kiddingly, "I just threw another smart guy out of here." We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for sharing your stay at our Super 8 in Long Beach. The General Manager (Edwin) makes it as enjoyable with the staff as with the guests.

Thanks again,

It's not a new motel, but it is clean and the spacious rooms have everything you need -- comfortable bed, fridge, functional furniture and a TV with lots of channels. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Breakfast is fine if you can tune out Fox News blaring in the background. The swimming pool is a gem.

We needed a place just to sleep before catching our morning flight out of Long Beach Airport, and this Super 8 was perfect. It is an older motel, but the rooms are big, clean and well kept. The breakfast was better than expected and the staff was very friendly. To top it off, it's just a short easy drive from the Long Beach airport. Highly recommend for those who are looking for a clean, non-expensive place to stay in the Long Beach area.

This was our second stay at Super 8 in Long Beach. We chose to come back, because we found it to be a really good option for a good night's rest after a long day of travelling, before hitting the road again the next day. The place is nothing fancy, it's pretty clean, the rooms are very large, the beds are really comfortable, and it's in a convenient location, about a 20 minute drive from LAX, and it is very easy to find. There are good restaurants and stores nearby. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The complimentary WiFi is great and parking is free. They serve complimentary breakfast from 6 to 10, which is pretty basic, but good. There's a pool, which we didn't use, but it looked clean. If you are very sensitive to noise this is probably not the place for you, the walls are a little thin, and there is some trffic noise from nearby streets. It did not bother us however. All in all a basic, but clean and convenient place for people who are travelling on a budget, or want to spend their money on other things than fancy lodging.

It's one of the better Super 8's I've stayed at. The bed was fine and the bathroom, internet, and furniture was OK too. I had a little living room in addition to the bedroom with a wet bar, a fridge, a soft chair and a microwave. It was small, but perfect. The main bedroom was large and had a sliding glass door by the pool. My shower head was a hand held, which I don't like and had trouble making it work without holding it. Also, the room next to me stayed up late and made lots of noise. After 12:30, I pounded on the wall and they shut up. The following morning I mentioned it to the manager who suggested I call the front desk, who would handle it next time. Now something I would never expect at a Super 8. In the early evening, they had a reception with soda, snacks and wine. So, I would say it's worth a try. Many of the properties in Long Beach are either really bad or terribly expensive. This property is a good compromise.

Room Tip: The first floor is below the office since the property is on a slope. I prefer the second floor.

The room was big, clean and recently painted. Breakfast was various and good (expecially chocolate muffin). Nice pool area. Too bad the ice machine didn't work. The receptionist was eager to keep our luggages after check out.

Breakfast is nice and huge. Various pastries, fruits...
Room is big and well equipped.
Clean and safe.
The block is quiet.
Only improvement to be made: rooms look old.
