Adrift Hotel and Spa
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Long Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Appears they took a small hotel and updated the decor. No carpets in the rooms. Two different buildings. There were five groups in the hotel. You would think they would upgrade you. Good value for a beach motel. No elevator in second building. Good spot for the cost! Clean cute room. Bed was not anything special. Woke up sore. Free coffee in the morning!

This hotel is decorated in early utilitarian, kind of like a New York loft. That being said, it had everything you need, including locally produced soaps and other items, which are also for sale.

The mattress was somewhat hard, but we still got a good nights sleep. The onsite restaurant was excellent, and had interesting music featured 4 nights a week.

It is located just steps from the beach, and offered free bicycles for loan to ride the beautiful walking-bike trail on the coast, which runs for miles.

This will be a different kind of stay from the big chains, but give it a try; if you are open-minded, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Room Tip: get a room on a higher floor, if possible, and ask for an ocean view.

My husband & I had a wonderful time at Adrift. This is my kind of place - straightforward, clean, functional yet loaded with character. Basic queen room was spacious. Room amenities were just right and appreciated the hotel's mission to reduce waste. Pickled fish was fantastic! Such a charming place. Excellent food And the band that played when we went (something to do with owls?) was amazing. I especially admired the bar. The only thing I would point out about Adrift is front desk service - the front desk staff is helpful but appears nonchalant. As someone who is a front desk staff I would advise you to simply smile when greeting the guest that approaches. It's easy to do and does a lot for the guest on the other side. Other than that, we'll definitely be back to Long beach & Adrift!

Then this place is a good choice.It's laid back and comfortable.They seem to care about our planet,we really enjoyed seeing how they used simple things and brought it all together to create a comfortable relaxing atmosphere.From the organic great coffee in the lobby to the free use of electra cruiser bikes,dog friendly,and a perfect location. Its not for everyone but if you enjoy life and want to be close to the beach its got you covered.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 420, which had a view of the ocean from an angle,if you want full front on views y...

Good things: The hotel is right on the beach and they provide free bikes if you want to ride along the path that runs in the dunes by the beach.
The coffee and tea in the lobby are excellent.
Free game and DVD rentals.
They recycle everything!
The Pickled Fish restaurant was excellent. One of the items we had was the locally foraged mushroom pizza. It was amazing! The lavender lemonade was also very tasty. Make reservations though! The place was packed (Fri night).
The beds were comfortable (but not memory foam in our room, as some other reviews have mentioned) and they gave us earplugs (which came in handy).
The toiletries (although not individual) smelled so yummy!

Could be improved:
No instructions on how to use the TV/DVD player or the three different remote controls.
Slow WiFi.
The "minimalist chic" was a bit too minimalist. The rooms looked like they could be updated a bit (especially the bathroom). The bed 'frame' was basically a wood pallet on the floor. The one chair in the room was a metal patio chair. The sick wasn't even in the bathroom, it was in the room by the door.
No fridge in the room. From the other reviews, it appears that some of the rooms have a fridge, but ours didn't. If that's something you need, be sure to request a room with one.

Overall it was a nice stay in a perfect location. The hotels has no 'bells and whistles', but it served it purpose and was a lot more fun to stay in than a chain hotel. Coming back would be an option if the price was right.

My husband and I bought a groupon for this hotel which was a great deal! The hotel room itself was nice with the industrial feel; something different. I love that the hotel is so dog friendly which was a major decision factor for us when we purchased this deal. The location to the beach was awesome! They have free loaner beach cruiser bikes which was also great! We lucked out with beautiful weather; especially for mid October. I do wish the hotel was just a bit closer to all of the shops and restaurants, though the walk was not terrible.
The downside for us was that our room was like being in a sauna. We had the window open and fan on all night and were still hot. I think we were put above the laundry room. The thermostat did not work at all in our room either. The floors need some more soundproofing as it sounded like we had an elephant above us.
Overall, it's a nice hotel.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the laundry room. Definately get a fan for coolness and to block out some noise...

The view from my room to the ocean was very nice. If I was taller I could have sat on the chaise in the room and seen the view, but standing up was ok. This place was not a pamper myself place. The decor was minimal and industrial. From the metal pipes to the crate boxes and pallets nailed to the wall. No place to empty out my suitcase, no directions on how to use the DVR/TV. No coffee pot in the room-I don't want to get dressed and go down stairs to get coffee in the morning. No freezer in the mini fridge, no microwave.
While looking at the shower I wondered if they had forgot to finish it.
The bikes were nice and maybe they could find a different place to store them, rather than in the check in area. It was an OK experience but I will pick a different place next time.
