Staying at the Varden was a wonderful experience. We arrived long before our check in time and the hotel was gracious enough to allow us to check in to our room early. The hotel was decorated very modern and the hosts were all wonderful. They provided us with directions to a nice place to eat breakfast and made sure we...

We weren't quite sure what to expect when we booked the Varden for four nights. We were in town on business and were looking for something close to the Metro line. The rooms are a little small, but the service offered by ALL staff members is out of this world. They run the hotel and treat their guests as though...

Uncertain where to stay, we chose the Varden, and are glad we did. Wonderful, friendly staff, very modern feel in a classic setting and a beautiful room: this place has it all. Larry and his staff were genuinely welcoming and made us feel at home. The breakfast is tasty, and there are healthy snacks 24 hours. The room was immaculate....

When we booked this hotel it was because it was Number One in Trip Advisor. What a great surprise to find this gem in Long Beach. We arrived after 2 am & the front desk staff was welcoming and helpful. The room reminded me of hotels we have stayed at in Europe and Argentina - small and minimalist (i.e. No...

I have stayed at the Varden twice, once alone for business and once with my husband on a trip to visit friends. On both occasions, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the accommodations and the exceptional service. And it's reasonably priced, too! Perfect for business travelers, solo travelers, couples or friends. Although the rooms are smaller than those...

If you have had enough of the Big Corporate Chains that overcharge for everything and never really know who you are, then the Varden is for you. The staff welcomes you like a long lost friend and delivers great service consistently. This is where you stay in Long Beach.

Stayed here because I did not feel like spending $250.00 to sleep in a bed. Was very pleasantly surprised. This place was built in the 1920's . I met the owner who designed upgraded and converted the hotel. The rooms are small BUT the way he designed them --- you don't feel it. All in white--- the linens are very...

Small and Beautiful, renewed with taste and sensibility, a great place to stay! Close to beautiful beaches, many restaurants in walking distance, though quiet. Most remarkable was the warm and friendly athmosphere. It' s almost like staying with friends.

So what if the rooms are “European –sized”? The bed ranks among the best I’ve ever slept in. Staff was super friendly, eagerly accommodated every request, and went out of their way to make me feel at home. My #1 choice for Long Beach.
