Spent 3 long days at the Long Beach Scuba Show, standing at our booth there. Enjoyable days, but long. The nice firm mattresses at this hotel, along with a quick bight to eat for breakfast at their continental breakfast, made these days easier. Left an item at the hotel, and the General Manager, Shawn Jones, mailed my item to me,...

When I pulled up to the hotel I was nervous, however don't let the outside fool you. The lobby and rooms while just basic we're clean. Note: You will have to pay for parking which I do not agree with. That should be included in the price.

BWP offered the best value compared to the rest of the hotels near the LB convention center. If your room faces the busy street, be prepared to hear noise from the revellers outside ... especially during the weekend - bring earplugs.
