I absolutely loved the atmosphere!
This is an older hotel with lots of style (leafy atrium with koi pond) but all the suites have been recently renovated. Wonderful, included breakfast and free-happy hour every evening. All that for about $100 per night. This place is hard to beat
Nice breakfast Charge too much for room where the ceiling is saggy looking and looks water damaged.
The room was quite spacious, breakfast was nice and free parking
Comfortable, spacious family rooms ideal for our family. Area great with lots of places to eat and shop close by. Felt safe walking at night and had great road links. wasn't aware karaoke was on at the weekends. A bit noisy especially for younger families. But it didn't go on too late.
The hotel is very clean and has everything within a mile that you would ever need (Fast food, restaruants, malls etc. Its a very safe place to stay with the family and close to the freeway. On saturday night they have a band that played until 11:30pm that is very loud through the hotel and you can here them in your room. Not sure if this is every weekend or just that sat.
Wifi did not work in my room and hotel had no explanation or help to fix problem other than to give me free wifi. Useless. Room had mildew smell. Front area of suite is not functional.
Restaurant, good food and drink, very friendly staff in bar section and the breakfast the next morning was good as well. where do I start, my room faced west , which is the front of building and the glaring light that lights the outside of building also lit my room all night long...Upon arrival I was greeted with a note on my pillow that read something to the effect, that because I had the do not disturb sign out they did not clean my room, HUH? I just checked in, Needless to say I didn't feel comfortable that my room was cleaned. When I brought this to the attention to management the next morning, she seemed to think no big deal they probably just left the wrong card, I asked her "Would you feel comfortable?", little to no response. The other problem was that the air conditioner could not cool the entire room, especially the bedroom (its all the way in the back), which left me hot all night, where a sheet was almost too much, Overall I would not stay here again except it is so close to where I need to be once a month. For the price I would expect better.
The room 221 is the worst, is next to the washing machines and they work 24h.
Even though the is no smoking the room had a slight smoke smell. Don't know if the rooms need to be more aired out or something?
Room was clean, roomy and comfortable Hotel is under big construction project. Lots of dust and construction noise during day. Bar and restaurant amenities not available for now due to construction. I'm sure once it's all done it will all be great again
Very clean big Room, Friendly Staff. Must have a Car, because LA downtown & Hollywood is a 20 minutes drive.
Everything was excellent. I loved the staff and the hotel.
I reserved two rooms for a work crew that was refoofing my house. They said the rooms were clean and quiet. No problems. I even added an extra day with no hassle. No complaints from the work crew.
The staff here was extremely nice and always offering to help out with anything, from transportation times, breakfast schedule, room service, taxis, etc. The wireless internet in the room was very fast and reliable. Room was clean, included refrigerator and microwave, and room service was always respectful of our wishes.
The Studio Inn and Suites in Downey CA A nice small hotel, Very clean and well maintained. Parking lot was small but not so small that it takes 5 mins to park. The hotel employees were very nice and helpful. The room we stayed in was surprisingly large for the size of the hotel. It was a welcomed suprise, room was clean. A++++++ hotel
Perfect stay....i loved the rooms! keep up the good work.
This hotel is newly remodeled with great taste! The rooms were very clean, cozy and comfortable. I was very pleased with the amenities which included a in room coffeemaker, microwave, fridge, iron and iron board as well. The front desk was very friendly and a great selection of danish/muffins with fresh coffee in the morning!
I liked that the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the amenities were average. The included breakfast was minimal but okay.
The size of the room. Old facility, breakfast was terrible with one small table. Very noisy next to a main road. A person was screaming for like half an hour.
There was no hot water in the shower. I told the staff I was sick and needed my room right away and they didn't really seem to care.
It's a cool, old cruise ship. It's kind of a tourist destination in itself. Also, it's really close to the helipad if you're taking the helicopter to Catalina. Overall, the boat felt old and empty and dingy. The bathroom looked a little dirty —probably just age—and there were lightbulbs missing from some of the fixtures in our room. I wanted it to be like stepping back in time, but that wasn't the experience on a weekday. Maybe weekends are better?
The ship was a grand experience! Love the history lots of things to explore. The beds were comfortable! I liked the original fixtures in the room. I can only image the people long ago entering the rooms and using the ship! Food was good! We ate in The Chelsea Chowder House and Bar. Slightly priced but the food was excellent and service was outstanding!!! Paying for the use of the WIFI And parking that seems odd to me because back east those items are free?! Other thing drove nuts--the walls seemed to be paper thin the 3-women in the cabin next to us were so loud!! It was a joy when they left the room or went to sleep!!!! However I understand that would not be an issue when the engines would be humming at sea!!
I love the concept of The Old Ship and the stateroomsecond as well as it being right on the water. The front desk staff was really rude. He just had an attitude the whole time and didn't want to accommodate us. We thought that we booked a room with two queens but it only had two twins and he was just very snobby about it. The rooms were very hot the air conditioner barely worked. I feel for the price it is not worth it. If they are charging over $200 a night, that's including tax, there needs to be a lot more luxury to the hotel. The toilet did not flush very well in the bathtub was uneven. It really needs a facelift.
the novelty of staying in an ocean liner the value for price, the staff, the size of the room, the parking, the lack of amenities onboard, the check-in process,
Atmosphere, history The bathroom wall in the shower was peeling. Looks like they don't maintain their rooms.
What I like is the history about the Ship and the Location. I understand that there is an investment proyevt to improve the condition of the ship, incluían Public Areas and Rooms. Great view from the Decks. A lot of Potential to be a nice lace that was before. Get the Ship back in good shape and not just take advantage of the name! (This is for the Operators) My room was M216 I did not like the conditions of the room. It was not clean! No mentioned in the reservation that will be inside room! Big difference! Items were really old and rusty mainly in the Bathroom! Shawrr door, one light bulb missing, the chain of the lock at entrance door broken, I went to get ice and the bucket had brown water with a plastic bag!! And the door of the Air Conditioning, which was above the bed was showing further prints All over in a white door! The hotel should not rent this rooms anymore!
I loved the feel of the golden age of ocean liners onboard. My girlfriend and I decided to stay the night before our cruise on Carnival the next day, which is conveniently located next to the ship. I wish more areas were open to guests such as the 1st class pool and grand ballroom.
Unique and different. Good food although pricey as well. Lot's of things to do and see. Lot's of channels in room. Bed a bit small... We went during a special event and spent extra for the winter "chill" event. avoid at all costs. totally overpriced for what you get. Most disappointing part of our trip.
Cool old ship. It's old ship, so the rooms are a bit old and not exactly sparkling clean. But the real issue is the Dark Harbor, haunted house event that goes on in October. We were not informed till arriving that are room would be adjacent to this raucous event. From 7pm until 1 am in the morning, extremely loud music, screaming, grass breaking and roaring gas flame would shoot off. It's criminal that the Queen Mary would rent rooms next to this mess. Oh but the front desk gives out cheap ear plugs, so that makes it all better.... not. We were on our one year anniversary and needless to say, were extremely disappointed and frustrated,
The staff was knowledgable and very friendly. The historical information was incredible both posted and what staff knew. Being able to explore many places on the ship on our own was really fun. Wish there was a microwave in the room.
I enjoyed the history, as the ship is a museum. I also enjoyed the scariness of it. I caught orbs in my room, B505, and it was spooky. I enjoyed the feeling of being on a ship and the sights from the decks. I don't know if the rustic feel is part of the theme but it seems as if it could use some maintenance.
Very convenient stay while attending the ISSE at the convention center. Very professional & attentive staff throughout my stay. No doubt under great management!
Got a great last minute deal on this hotel, worked out great. Perfect location near restaurants and shopping on the shore.
The "Check In" staff was wonderful, helpful, and made me feel welcome. The rooms were comfortable and I will mostly likely stay here again when I visit Long Beach, CA. The hotel is in a great location prior to cruising and/or enjoying the beach. Even though my parking fee was waived, I hope free parking becomes a standard practice.
The view from the room was great & staff was great!
$26 parking for hotel guests. Receptionist just said "yeah, this is Long Beach"
one of the most amazing experience to stay at the host hotel for the long beach marathon. the hotel made sure that the guests who stayed at the hotel who participated in the events will receive a mini brown bag w/ goodies for the race. room did not come w/ a mini refrig nor any mini bar
Great Location to the Queen Mary and restaurants. Issues with wifi.
Everything was nice, nice staff and very convenient to everything. The bathrooms were dirty and the shower absolutely was the worst one I've ever encountered.
Friendly And efficient staff Quick and accommodating check in Small pool with no bar also the sun is blocked by the hotel itself.
comfort, location, and view the people
Went through Kayak to purchase this room. Kayak seemed to think it was a 4 star. It is it not a four star, 2.5 to 3. Took 25 minutes to check in with only one person in line ahead of me, mold in the shower, shower was over all dirty and old, room was stuffy the whole time I was there, parking was 26.00, which is NOT advertised, found out when I got there, Internet was 14.95, which I was advised of that when I arrived although my receipt showed a king size room - Internet. My fault for assuming that if was included. won't stay here again, especially for the rate that I was charged. Hmmmm... Large bath towels
Good location. Near shopping and the beach. Construction made accessing/finding front of hotel difficult. Hotel had no signs indicating where entrance was located and no street level signage visible. Confirmation emails did not indicate hotel was under construction. Room service would not take our breakfast order, weird.
Clean. Upscale. Comfortable Cost per night
Modern feel, staff friendly Parking 16$ extra per night! (Hidden cost) pool not heated and small. Did not like outlet mall being attached to hotel.
Super clean and nice. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to leave it. Beautiful pool deck on the roof where you can eat and relax. The shower was amazing. Super large.
And prRoom was nice. But the staff was very helpful
Very comfortable. Nice stay. Staff were friendly. Iron didn't work. Vanity mirror didn't work. One request from staff wasn't filled. No microwave.
Everything was great No shuttle service
J'aime boucoup le location. J'aime pas de petit roms et parking.
Comfortable room. Nice bathroom. Price was too much.
The hotel itself was beautiful, and edgy. Everything was an additional charge and expensive. I've stayed in NY and never thought i'd see pancakes sold at $15. I also would expect a hotel to include wi-fi. Water for $5???
The staff was very helpful and nice. The price was high for what you get at the hotel. I have stayed in very nice hotels that offer a more luxurious feel. Also, there were protesters there outside the main entrance almost every morning around 0700. You could easily hear them and it was quite obnoxious.
Booked online for a room with a double bed. Reservation confirmation after booking the reservation snuck in "double or king." When we arrived at the hotel, there were no rooms with double beds and not even any rollaway beds. So I canceled the reservation. Kayak may not be the responsible provider, but when the website option selected is room with double beds and that's the primary reason for my selection of the particular hotel, they better have that kind of room available to backstop my booking. Otherwise, it's false advertising. I will think twice before using Kayak again to book a hotel room.
Breakfast was very expensive, but also very good. No fridge, no ice machine on my floor, very dirty bath tub, uncomfortable bed, no outlets by mirror, outlets by bed did not work,
Elevator music vapid & hilariously loud Wi Fi not free @ these prices? Told suite would have welcome basket w champagne--got nothing No newspaper weekends @ these prices?
We (either spouse and/or kid) have stayed here at least once a year and have watched it undergo many improvements, it is a wonderful place to stay if you want to be close to the Queen Mary but would like to avoid the noise or prefer a larger room and a pool. Since it is set up like a motel, you have to walk over between buildings and to the pool. The Sunday brunch is fantastic, there is a cute sand area for the kids, decor is cute and the facility always appears clean. I have not used any of the service options (in room or pool side) due to some really bad experiences prior to the change of ownership. During the last stay there was a music festival at the Queen Mary which is to say that it was difficult to get to the hotel and once there, parking was difficult and people were pre-partying around the hotel. We had dinner reservations on the QM and the woman at the front desk offered a golf cart shuttle to the ship. On our way to the room we watched concert goers jockey for a space on the golf cart and then proceed to sit on one another's lap to fit. When we later approached the golf cart pick up area we were relieved to find it empty. A person identifying himself as a manager informed me "this cart isn't working, the battery is out" and then he clarified that it was the only one they had. Lame. In the end we were able to get to dinner in 10 minutes via sturdy Louboutins and the walk path but I would have liked a more professional handling of the situation.
Easy access to bus line ( bus line is Clean an convenient) takes you to downtown long beach. Free shuttle to cruise ship terminal. Great pool and pool bar staff. Cool/funky mayan theme throughout.
Beautiful view and location, and very nice room. The staff was very nice to deal with. The price was a little high, and the rug in the room should be replaced.
The views, particularly at night. It was undergoing renovation of one of the towers. Some noise etc. associated with that although it stopped by 5 pm. The staff at the restaurant was really terrible when I had a late lunch. I have stayed there before and enjoyed good service, but it was quite bad on this trip. I waited for at least ten minutes while waiters walked by me and waited on tables seated after I was. There were only 6 or so tables total as it was late afternoon. At one point my waiter talked to the table next to me about personal matters for about ten minutes and then walked off without coming by my table or refilling my water. My experience with all other staff was excellent. The restaurant staff is entirely responsible for the Okay rating.
The staff was very courteous from the moment we arrived and very helpful the entire time. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Long Beach area in the future.
The atmosphere, view and vibe was relaxing and incredible !! the guy at the front desk was really respectfull and helpfull and even gave us free fresh baked choclate cookies at check in and compt our parking for our visit , think his name was Noor ... Highly recomend and will definitley be coming back soon ! Thumbs upppp
We especially liked the location and the service by the front desk. Fuego is a great place to dine. Unfortunately, we were placed next to a family that were loud and disrespectful until late night. The hotel staff tried to quiet them; however, it took many attempts. It was not the real fault of the hotel; but it did make our stay unpleasant.
I would recommend a water view. It was a great! Nothing
Nice waterfront location Hard to fine by drivers
The lady owner at the front desk will price match and/or will have a lower price than priceline. Mattress was horrible. Springs poking you in everything.
I booked a room for one night for my family. This place is the scariest motel ever. It basically is used for long term stays by everyone there. They must keep one or two for nightly stays. I saw alot of activity going on here that was very scary to myself and my family. We were basically confined to our room because we were so frightened. I didn't even sleep the whole night because I thought something might happen. So please please please if you have a family DO NOT stay here.
My daughter and I checked into our room which was supposed to be a non-smoking room. It was not. The room had patches all over the walls where it looked like someone kicked and punched holes. The carpet was stained, frayed, and lumpy. The bed was pathetic and the dresser drawers wouldn't shut and they had graffiti on the inside of them. We told the lady that we could not stay there. So she gave us a key to a new room. It was better - or so I thought it would be. When I went to take a shower, I turned on the tub faucet and a CHUNK of tiny ants spurted out. This place is next to a nasty little liquor store where creeps hang out. It appears that some of the rooms are occupied by long-term renters who are scary.

It was very quiet and it was a nice place to stay were the bed was very comfortable and breakfast was good not much but it's was a good way to the morning I like everything
room size was fairly large for the cheap price we paid
Beautiful property, Huge room, clean very confortable nothing
Spacious rooms Price, should be lowered on sun-thurs
The room was clean. The road noise was pretty bad, the smell of the room was unusual, there was a homeless looking person wheeling a shopping cart through the parking lot in the early evening. I will never stay at a one star hotel again.
I thought this hotel was nice and very quiet. Staff was friendly and the hotel was well taken care of. They had a very nice flower garden down the whole front of the hotel. The only negative thing I can say is that the pool waas freezing.
I stayed for two nights while visiting my son in Fullerton, Ca. Everything about the hotel was great. It was clean and very quiet. Had a nice continental breakfast both days and everyone at the hotel was very courteous and helpful. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit.
I stayed with my son and we enjoyed. Room was clean, comfortable, quiet and renovated. Manager and his wife was paying attention personally for everything. They are friendly persons. You must have a car to go somewhere in LA so there is no reason to downgrade the rating of hotel because of its place. You can reach in 15-20 min. max where you want to go. There are couple of shopping centers in neighbourhood. Great place.
My family of 5, enjoyed our stay at the American Inn. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean and and quiet it was. The front office staff was very friendly and accommodated when we need to check in early after traveling all night long. We will definitely be back!
I’d give this hotel 2+ big stars. Breakfast meagre but great coffee and fresh fruit. Close to beaches, attractions. Felt extremely safe there as a single woman. Warm, friendly couple at front desk; informal check-in but spotless room and common areas and very nice cleaning team. A real bargain at the price and managers are genuinely eager to please. A well-run gem.

Good bed. Hand basin is outside the bathroom. The morning 'manager' is unquestionably the most obnoxious, repugnant employee I have ever encountered. The homeless in LA are better behaved. The checkout process after a reasonable 5 day stay was so bad that I will never go back to ANY Comfort Inn.
free self-parking kind staffs location no refrigerator in room elevator is too old
Location Towels in the room (3 towels) and beds seems to be older (sagging).
Clean and quiet. Staff was very attentive and helpful N/A
Cookies! And the pool was lovely and the bed amazingly comfortable! There were no towels out by the pool! Brrr! We had to use some on the ground. And it's a weird area...but, it was necessary for us.
We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, we felt the rooms were very clean and modern, staff were very helpful, one gentleman find us some tokens for reduced rates at Knotts Berry Farm. We had a car so could drive to all relevant attractions and the shopping outlet next to the hotel was very handy. Very good value for money!! No, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend you to family and friends.
Very good 2 rooms, good fitness room. house-keeping does not work after 2 p.m.
The room was in perfect condition. The bed was amazingly comfortable, and felt very luxurious. This was a great room for an amazing price.
I liked the low price on bar drinks and hospitality
Low quality casino. Smokers near every entrance. Management was very by their own "rules" and unwilling to make any type of exceptions to make our stay more comfortable. Ended up cutting our stay short and booking a room with Hilton instead.
Great rate, room service was good, good value, convenient location. Staff was super friendly and helpful. It was next to outlets which was nice, right off highway and had everything you need. Its not your LA hotel but its a good option. We found movies near, shopping, on site eating. It was about 40 minutes from West Hollywood so we could get into the city and it was good to stay out of all the traffic.
It was value for money and the staff were great! There were not enough facilities in the room
The rooms were very big. Bathroom was great.
Good money value - better than expected Cleanliness and nice furniture Lots of lighting in the room Breakfast only starts at 6:30AM Difficulties to excess wifi through multiple devices
Rooms looked modern It was over priced. Def not a 3 star. Bugs in room. Bad area! No tv signal even worse was the Internet signal!!! I would and will not recommend Hotel Current! Place.
The hotel was nice, clean and the location was close to downtown long beach, staff was really friendly and helpful. Our stay was great, beds were really comfortable and our room came with a fridge and microwave. Would comeback to stay for next years Long Beach marathon. Only thing wrong was the walls are a bit thin you could hear door close from other rooms down the building. But other than that's no other problems.
The maintenance guy, when we were finally able to get the front desk to have him check out our room, was a fast worker and great to talk to. The bathroom was really nice, aside from the faucet not being screwed on (maintenance guy fixed it), shower gel container they provided was broken, and toilet looked about 20 years old. They gave us a bottle of wine since we were there for our honeymoon. It's really a motel, not a hotel. Room was not artsy, eclectic, or colorful like they advertise- it was brown, beige, and black with only 2 splashes of color in the whole room. Housekeeping sucked- didn't vacuum when there were obvious areas of food crumbs, left the garbage can on the toilet, didn't replace ice bag, didn't notify maintenance of problems with room (he specifically said they're supposed to do that). Internet was practically nonexistent and we were only allowed two devices. No HDMI hookups on the tvs. Front desk wasn't very helpful and didn't notify maintenance the first time we came to them with problems. Curtain was ripped so 6 inches of light poured in the room. People smoked outside our room so the smoke smell got in our room die to the 1 inch gaps around the door. They overpriced every service ($2 to wash laundry, $1.75 to dry laundry, $3 minimum to use their computer and $0.50 for each additional minute, $1-1.50 to print per page, etc.). No hot tub, just the pool, though the pool was nice.
It was clean. And staff was very kind . I paid in advance online for 2 Queen beds, and checking in at 5:30 we were told they only had a king! Then we go to park our cars and the spaces are like for Barbie's car !wayyyy to narrow spaces & posts that many cars have played tag with! The location is just ok...tO far from Pine Ave & 2nd Street where all the restaurants & shops are ! And they charge $15 per car per day to park in that horrible parking structure! They had NO shuttle for around town locally. The walls are thin, we had neighbors on both sides of us keeping us awake all night, laughing & partying!
Are room was right next to the service elevators which kept us up all night long. Only thing the staff would do was discount the valet parking charges. Won't stay there again!
Rooms were lovely and reception staff were very friendly
The staff was rude and even lied about the rooms I booked. I had booked a room with double beds only and they gave us a king. I told them I had comfermation that it was double beds and they said it I could not find them and print it out, it was just too bad for me. Luckily, I did find it....it said double beds only....so they finally gave us the room. The staff person to.d me I booked a king...I I to.d him he was wrong and he hung up. It was a bad experience. I had to speak to the manager and the home office and print out the paper that promised me a double bed room before anything was done. Never had such a bad e perience.
rely was normal hotel,nothing is spacial
Excellent facilities. Very efficient service. Only one restaurant/ bar open in the evenings. No restaurants/ bar nearby. Consequently, service was slow.
The staff had no idea how to handle booking.com customers and treaded us like second class customers. The breakfast buffet is weird, it's one buffet for continental and american breakfast. As booking.com customer, you are not allowed to touch the american breakfast items.
Pillows and beds are perfect.
I was dead sick for four days while I had to work 11 hours a day. When I got back to the hotel all I could do is sleep. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were stellar. The room was quiet and temp control was great. All good.

Consistently good service and clean rooms.
Everything was great! Everything was great!
If are planning to stay at this hotel you need to budget for paying for the Internet access, $3.00 for a small bottle of water. No frige or microwave in the room. I refused to pay for their Internet access, I found a public Hotspot but they blocked me. They will try to make every penny they can from you. I will never stay at this hotel again. Every time you try to change the tv channel, it takes you back to their advertising channel and try to sell you a movie, very annoying.

Location to destination, good surroundings/area. Enjoyed the warm cookies offered at front desk. Had a billing issue at end which they corrected and honored our agreement. Was happy about that considering the start was shaky. The room service was below expectation, also only 1 small trash can and pull out bed was overdue to be replaced. A bowl of food sat on floor in hall for over 24 hrs. down hall. I mentioned it to the front desk on day 2 and when I returned it was gone.
Friendly staff Traffic noise
Very friendly staff, great rooms No
The concierge personnel are wonderful. The breakfast was superb!!! There was a crack/hole on the bathroom shower wall. The bathtub was not so sparkly clean compared to all the other hotels I have stayed in over the years.
It location in transitioning to LA. The couch in the junior suite should be a new one. They should considering removing the carpet. It had some age on it.
