“Best Western Plus Long Beach”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

The Best Western Plus was an ideal location within walking distance & bus service to shops and restaurants in Long Beach. The area was quiet and safe. Our room was very clean with all the amenities included (room safe, free wi-fi, breakfast etc.) We stayed for two nights prior to a cruise along with our adult children, who had separate rooms, with the plan of sight seeing around Long Beach, which proved to be an excellent choice with close proximity to everything and only a 5 minute drive to the cruise ship center. The only negative was the breakfast room was very small and hard to find an empty table in the morning. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: We had a king room booked and paid for 14 days in advance which gave us the best rate. Our room over...

My colleague and I were in Long Beach for a convention and chose this hotel based on the proximity to the convention center. We are sure glad we chose this hotel. The property is a 10 minute walk to the convention centre. The hotel is located on a very quiet street with many cool shops and small restaurants located nearby. There is a way cool bar called "Hayden's" half a block down the street as well. The staff at this hotel are so accommodating and friendly and always have a smile for you. When Travelocity failed to give them our paid reservation the staff and manager helped us get it figured out even though the hotel was totally sold out. (tip! - always call your hotel to make sure they receive your reservation if booking through providers like travelocity) Big thanks to Maria! The breakfast that is provided was superb! I was not expecting such a wide choice of fresh bagels, bacon & scrambled eggs, hot and cold cereals, waffles, fresh fruit, variety of juices etc. The rooms are clean, modern and rival some of the more expensive hotels. We will be using this hotel when our travel plans include the Los Angeles area.

This was a relaxation vacation.

I have stayed at this location in the past, I fact this was my third stay.

The staff has always been friendly and accommodating. The rooms have always been clean, well organized and modern.

The surrounding area had plenty of attractions and restaurants near by to meet all my needs.

I plan to stay there again.

We stayed here for one night for a pre-cruise stay. It was convenient and close to the pier. We drove our own car and the parking was underground, the interior was nice, and the room was very comfortable. The bed linens were nice, but the towels left something to be desired. We had a king bed room, there was a desk, arm chair and footstool, and a flat screen TV. The bathroom was marble and a good size. I got the feeling this place has recently had a refurib. The staff was also very friendly. Very good deal for what we paid (there's a $10/night parking fee also). I would definitely stay here again!

From the moment we stepped into the lobby, we had a great experience. Hotel staff were friendly, courteous and very accommodating. Even though we were very early arriving, they still checked on our room and it was available so they let us check in early. Front desk staff remembered our names each and every time we came through the lobby. Very comfortable beds, pillows and clean. Good location - easy to get to all of the Long Beach sites and close to the free public transit. Definitely will use this hotel again.

I don't often write hotel reviews, but there is one reason I felt compelled to write this one: the outstanding staff at the Best Western Plus in Long Beach. I booked this hotel because it was close to the convention center, but less expensive than some of the other hotels. And I have to say that I was not at all sorry for going the less expensive route. From the moment of check in, all of the staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating in every way. No matter what I needed throughout my stay, they were happy to help with a smile and a sincere desire to make the guests feel welcome. Add to that, the comfortable bed, clean rooms,free wifi, nice breakfast and great location and it is well worth staying a few extra blocks from the convention center. Did I mention the pleasant, friendly and helpful staff?
