Unfortunately, there is a limit on how many beds and what size they can be for the room to still be safe and comfortable. We hope to have another...

We stayed at this Best Western on 2/11/17. We has a couple of hiccups on check in. We were charged for $15 parking and shouldn't have been. Also I asked about an automatic upgrade being a BW Rewards member. My understanding was I/we received one. That was in error. I pointed this out in my BW review. I was contacted...

This was our first stay at this hotel in Long Beach. Check-In Desk staff was very helpful in providing useful information on the hotel and the surroundings. The breakfast room was pleasant and staff there, also, was helpful. The hotel worked out perfectly and cost about half of what we expected to pay.

The staff was extremely courteous, the hotel clean and modern. The manager, Shawn, went over and above to help out 2 women traveling in a strange city to feel safe and secure. The breakfast was amazing. I could go on, but suffice to say, we enjoyed our stay, and found it to be an excellent hotel.

Stayed one night before Carnival Cruise. The location was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Free shuttle to Queen Mary and harbor. Would stay again for our next cruise. Restaurants very close to Best Western, just a couple blocks down on Pine Street. Took Uber to port for $5.00.
