I rarely write a bad review of a hotel but this place deserves it. We were visiting family in the area and this place was convenient. We had previously stayed at the Allegria which was beautiful.
This hotel had been a nursing home. The rooms are small and dingy with poor light. The shades let in light. Beds were lumpy. The toilet had brown water...hopefully rust. Wall are thin and we could hear the partying in the next room. The remodel looked so sloppy that the doorknob to the bathroom had pain on it. The elevator was out of an old Hitchcock movie and did not fit two people and two suitcases.
The front desk person was pleasant and helpful. There was no effort to help with luggage. It was snowing and there was a slippery piece of plywood between the area that a car or taxi would pull up and the curb.
If you need a hotel in Long Beach in the winter, stay at the Allegriae. It is beautiful and reasonable.More
