I had wanted a bit of sleep in before checking out from my Hollywood hotel, but bing, I was awake at 7am and not happy about it. I find this happens often when I am on break, I think it is mostly excitement from the fact I am in a foreign land and so much to explore. My mind tracks 100kmh thinking of all the things I want to do and how I will do …
... off we went for breakfast. There was a buffet as well as a menu to choose from. Most of the menu items were $11.00, plus beverage and the buffet was $14.00 so we chose the buffet. Since we had until noon to check out we decided that Nancy would do the "official" walking tour and I was going back up to the radio room. The radio room was not open so I decided to walk the Sport Deck, then went down to the Sun Deck and walked that, ...
So today is the last day in the RV. We hand over the keys early tomorrow morning. We've come back to LA so we don't need to drive far the in the morning, staying in a park in Long Beach.
After a few days boon docking, we desperately welcomed the hot shower and facilities. Electric hookup and an opportunity to dump ...
Went to The North Shore with Kasia and Noella and want to the Artis Family bands studio (Ron Artis's family). They all play music and treated us to a private gig, they were incredible to say the least, they have albums across all genres, so impressive. Noella turned out to be an amazing accordion player, and non of the 11 children could play so she gave them a lesson. After much conversation we were invited to watch Iron Man 3 at the cinema the next day with ...
... Henry Winkler and Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie's LA 'event' house. We also saw the Beverly Hills Hotel, home of the Golden Globes (which are on this week) and where Whitney Houston passed away last year. Our tour leader also told us that he had a scoop on an actor who was going to announce that he's gay shortly ... He couldn't say who, but we should get the news in Aus first when it does break. Back in Hollywood we were straight on to our Dolby Theatre tour. The Dolby Theatre - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western of Long Beach
Non smoking hotel!
I didn't realize this was a non-smoking hotel! this was excellent! We will definitely come back!
Best Hotel in the area! Great service, clean, accomodating!
We stayed at another hotel locally and was incredibly disappointed! We had to move because the other hotel was scary and disgusting. It was a travel lodge that charged us $140.00 for the night. We were very pleased at the lower rate of this hotel, ($99.00) the location and the friendly service. We asked lots of questions about where to go to get the best beach! The fact that the hotel was clean and beautifully decorated as you would expect a Best Western to be was a bonus! I had a great experience with the staff that checked me in early because I was tired after traveling for a long time (we checked in 3 hours early, to a clean, comfortable bed!).
The fact that the manager of this hotel allowed a homeless person entry to my vehicle while we were on their park and cruise package by leaving it unlocked was bad enough. But when he tried to cover it up by not telling us and by his rudeness, I decided it was time to turn to corporate. They were at least sympathetic the first two times I spoke with them (Caitilin and Nancy), but Mary was beyond the pale saying that Corporate washed their hands of the whole mess. It was my job to go back to the useless manager who had been so rude and unhelpful in the first place. he even kept 2 of our suitcases and would not have returned them to us had we not noticed something was wrong when we got back to the car. I believe all the bad reviews that have been written here. We most certainly will NOT be staying at ANY best western (capitals omitted on purpose) again, Ever!
I was shocked when I arrived at Best Western at Long Beach (PCH). My reservation for a single room had been cancelled, because the (my one and only) credit card I used for the reservation had to be replaced because of some fraudent charges on it. I had called on the morning of arrival to make sure everything was okay, and the desk clerk said it was. So I figured it would be fine until I arrive at the hotel.
We noticed at once that the manager at Best Western of Long Beach had an attitude of unresponsive superiority. He treated all his registering guests, and our party too, with cold contempt from the get-go -- as if he saw his guests as his inferiors or his enemies. He was rude, smug and intimidating, especially hostile when speaking with women, myself included, though I was utterly polite and courteous to him.
We just had the most incredible expirience at the Best Western Long Beach (not the Airport loaction).
I had a nightmare experience at this hotel, do not stay there!!!
Best Western aka Worst Western or any other direction
I wished I would have visited this site before I stayed here. I would have xcld the reservation based on the previous review.
The $50.00 depost is bizarre and worse of all, true.
Even more infuriating is the condescending attitude of the front desk.
I would rather spend the night anywhere but here and will not be staying at any Best Western ever again.
We recently stayed at this hotel. The internet information shows that this is a new hotel. It is obvious on the outside it is not a new hotel. The area of town it is in is not safe.... When checking in to the hotel there is a separate piece of paper that you are required to sign. They hold $50 on your credit/debit card til you checkout in the event that there is any damage to the room or if you smoke in the non-smoking room. I was surprised by the $50 deposit paperwork. When questioning the clerk at the front desk on this he was not cordial at all and said that "all" hotels do this. When checking into our room just past our front door on the maroon carpet there was a big stain. We made sure we called down to the front desk to make sure they were aware of this stain. The clerk told us he was not sure if it had been documented or not. When we checked out the following morning we again discussed to the front desk personnel about the stain, so that we would not be charged the $50 deposit - per the paperwork we had signed. No one at the front desk looked like they knew about the stain or seemed to care. But, they sure are insistent on the signed paperwork! We've had prior not so good experiences at another Best Western hotel in Farmington, NM October 2003. So, I doubt we will stay at another Best Western. Look at your other options to stay in the Long Beach area before choosing this Best Western.
Clean -- Nice
I stay here occasionally while visiting relatives in area..very clean, great, friendly staff, well maintained hotel with decent rooms and good free continental breakfast...close to downtown and beach..not walking distance but close..many buses and metrolink trains close but it is in bad area of town...do not walk off premises after dark....
