We booked into the Best Western here in San Pedro because we are going on a cruise. They would give us a night, breakfast, and a ride to the dock, keeping our vehicle while we are away, for the about the same price as just parking at the dock. We didn't have to rush to get to the ship. They have a nice hotel here. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. It is a bit noisy with the traffic, but still okay. The Internet was up and down. The TV is big, but no digital channels which is a waste. The TV channels. We watched CBS mostly. We had to keep our thumb on the volume control. It went up and down constantly. It was crazy. There are only a few fast food restaurants within walking distance which is a bummer. They serve a nice free breakfast until 10 AM.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the building. Quieter there.

I searched for quite awhile when I decided to get a room the night before departing on a cruise for the port of San Pedro. Other options online were priced similarly, but had not so similar reviews. I decided to give this a chance, and was quite surprised at how nice the accommodations were. Amanda, who was working there each day is a gem! She hooked us up with the shuttle to and from the port, and kept our car for 3 days without a problem. The rooms were really spacious, clean and well appointed. Breakfast was also a plus- nice not to have to worry about finding a place to eat in the morning, and the options were good . Definitely will return if I am ever in the area again,

Room Tip: Agreed- get a room in the back of the property- front of the property is on a busy street

Nicely renovated 2.5 star hotel. Large, comfortable room and bathroom. No restaurant, had to walk into very seedy neighborhood for dinner. Thankfully, excellent Thai/sushi place right across the street. Would not walk around this neighborhood, especially after dark, by myself! Good value for quick overnight pre-cruise. 100% of the breakfast crowd was seniors taking advantage of a good pre-cruise deal.

Room Tip: Took advice of other reviewers and asked for quiet room in back. Very quiet and good for sleeping.

We were leaving on a cruise from the Port of LA that is located in San Pedro, CA and chose this hotel for three reasons:
1. Good reviews on TripAdvisor.
2. The hotel was near the port and had free shuttle service to the port.
3. The hotel was in the price range we wanted to pay.

This hotel recently joined the Best Western Brand and is situated on the Main Street in San Pedro about one mile from the port. It is a multi-level hotel with ample parking under the hotel. In fact they have park and cruise specials. The hotel is not new but the rooms were spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable. There was a writing desk, a comfortable lounge chair, a small refrigerator and ample storage room as well as free WIFI. The breakfast area on the main floor easily accommodated the morning rush. The breakfast was adequate, nothing special.
The hotel is located in a so-so area so the elevators must be activated with your room key. The closest grocery store is Van’s about a mile away. The CVS pharmacy is located about ⅓ to ½ mile from the hotel. Fast food is easily available with more sit-down restaurants located about ½ mile away.
Please consider the following when making a reservation:
1. Choose a room on the backside of the hotel. The rooms facing the main street are quite noisy.
2. The free shuttle service to the port begins at 9 AM and runs every ½ hour. However, the van only holds 6 people plus luggage. It is on a first come first serve so I do not think you can reserve a time prior to your arrival.
3. Taxi service is extremely limited in the area.
4. The elevators were very slow and there are no central stairways.
If you have a car, the hotel is close to all the attractions in the Long Beach area. It is also within 5 miles of the Long Beach Airport. Most of the staff was very helpful. Other hotel choices are available in the area but the rates were $50 to $100 per night more expensive. For our needs the hotel was fine.

Room Tip: Get a room on the backside of the hotel

This hotel was very nice. We checked in late, around 10pm and our shuttle driver had a little trouble finding the entrance. The lobby of the hotel is actually on the 2nd floor and the parking garage beneath it. The inside of the hotel was very nice. Sleek, modern and nicely decorated. We had a king size room that was very large, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Looking at other reviews, we did see that people requested rooms in the back of the hotel because it is quieter, but we got a room right in the front of the building. The hotel is on a main road, but it wasn't too loud and I had no problem sleeping through the night. The bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was good and they even had microwave popcorn that I made before going up to my room the night before. We booked a free shuttle to the cruise port and it was actually ahead of schedule so we got to go sooner than expected. A very short ride to the port and very easy to get there. I know some people mentioned that the outside area was not very desirable. But for a short overnight stay before or after a cruise, you can't beat it. If we had needed to, I would not have had a problem walking outside. The area wasn't particularly nice and driving to the cruise port you could see bars on every home's windows, but again it was a great location and you can't beat a nice free hot breakfast and a free ride to the cruise port. I did take a look at the exercise room. It was small but nice for anyone that wants to get a workout in and they also had a very nice outdoor pool. I would highly recommend the Best Western and stay here again if I took another cruise out of San Pedro.

This hotel is very convenient to the cruise port in San Pedro, and the room we had was obviously updated. Do ask for a room on the back side, however, if you want quiet; our 3rd floor room was at street level and traffic noise continued all night. Breakfast was a nice surprise; lots of choices.

This hotel has recently been refurbished and it is beautiful on the inside. Do not judge this hotel from the exterior. It is a wonderful place to stay before and after a cruise. It is close to the pier and they provide a shuttle, free breakfast, and will keep your car for a nominal fee. The staff is friendly and the hotel is very clean.
