Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

We had terrific service in downtown Long Beach! Close to everything, very friendly, safe and comfortable! Walking to the beach was easy as well as liquor stores, restaurants, and bars! I would highly recommend this hotel!

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.
