* Close to convention center and beach * Spacious room * Courteous and helpful front desk clerks * Long Beach is a very nice town, feels more quaint than you would think it would
* Cleanliness was definitely an issue. I wouldn't call it horrible, as some others described, but it was sub-par. * Holes in comforter * Room could use some maintenance and deep cleaning * Noise from streets surrounding the hotel came into the room easily, recommend earplugs if you're a light sleeper!
Close to Convention Center
Hotel room was dirty. Carpet was old and hadn't been cleaned in some time - socks were black on bottom after walking around. Walls were dirty with what looked like something had dripped down them. Bathroom door jambs, walls and baseboards were filthy. Our blow dryer didn't work and we called to get replacement they had no one to help at this time so we were given key to another unit to go blow dry our hair. Ice buckets were placed underneath the air conditioning unit outside each unit to catch condensation which then overflowed over hallway and down to level below. Because there was a convention in town the cost was over $150 per night for this mess

Customer service was a nightmare. Was made to wait over an hour upon arrival despite arriving late in the afternoon well and truly after the 3pm check in. The room was many things clean unfortunately was not one. Was woken to I kid you not a severe fight inside the hotel that required the police to be involved (people involved were not guests) Staff offered no apologies for the 3 hour early morning disturbance. Non smoking room that regularly would reek of tobacco or cannabis. Incredibly disappointing.
I was expecting far less than we got with this hotel, given the price. First, there was a room with THREE double beds- which was amazing for our group of five students. The beds were comfortable, and the towels provided were actually soft and absorbent (which is unexpected and the reason why I usually pack my own). Five women easily had enough room to get ready each morning in the bathroom/ using a nearby full length mirrored closet. The walk to the Convention center took less than ten minutes, and included a nice stroll through a small arts/shopping district (where local buses and shuttles pick-up). There is also a Vons grocery with a Starbucks within a 3 minute walk as well. The staff was helpful when we did need them to reset keys and clear trash/restock.
The town itself wakes early, and we did hear the occasional incoherent ranting from locals, but never felt unsafe. Our room was adjacent to an alley where trucks unloaded before 5am each morning (being stuck on Eastern Standard Time, this was not an issue for me). The hallway leading off of the elevator has an Alfred Hitchcock feel to it, but it's misleading. Overall, a great value- and I'd stay there with my children if I ever visited for pleasure.
Good location to convention center, a 12 minute brisk walk. Good restaurants and close to museums.
Room had a particular oder, not smoking which was over powering. Luckily the climate was good to have the window and balcony door open. Could have only been this room but not pleasant.
