Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Maya - A DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel Long Beach
Love the Views
I have stayed here three times and look forward to returning again. Definitely request a water view room. It's a pleasant walk to the (overpriced!) Queen Mary attraction, and we also walked past the tennis courts, across the bridge to the new Long Beach marina area featuring the aquarium, shopping, a multi-plex and Bubba Gumps (a fun theme restaurant). Long Beach Transit offers water-bus service from the hotel dock. It's fun and very cheap, but it's seasonal service and the waits can be long.
Hotel rooms have wireless internet access, and the balconies, sea breezes and high ceilings combine to create a very airy, relaxing feel.
Comfort & Cruise Port Convenience
We booked the Park & Sail package for our Carnival Cruise during Easter break in April. This included a room for the night before our embarkation, breakfast, parking for the cruise duration, and a shuttle to the Port. Parking at the Port is $10/day, so instead our $70 parking fee went towards the cost of the room ($160) at the Coast. We had a room overlooking the water w/ a view of the Queen Mary. The next morning we saw our Carnival ship dock next to the Queen Mary. Our room was comfortable, clean, and spacious. The hot/cold breakfast buffet was good and the hotel location can't be beat. We could have walked over to the Port, but since we had luggage, we shuttled over instead. The shuttle drivers and staff are very friendly and professional. Our car was parked in the hotel's parking lot (outdoors) w/ no problems. We would stay here again if we cruise out of Long Beach again.
Good and OK
Stayed June 18-22
I liked this hotel. Let's do the good first- location was great! View of the Quenn Mary and the city. Pool was wonderful...loved sitting out, reading, tanning and meeting new people. Food was pretty good and the staff was really great! Loved that the Passport bus service came to hotel...take it all over LB. Sit out at the the restaurant- great view
Not So Good- I had to change rooms because my TV wouldn't turn on- after the 3rd time, I asked that I be moved to a water view room and they did so without hesitation and no extra cost. Room service is slow. They should have staff checking the pool if people want drinks or food- waited 30 minutes for a drink. Once we befriended the staff, anything we wanted within 5 minutes. rooms were ok- carpet could use some help in the 2 rooms I was in. Overall, I liked it and would go back.
Great Experience at West Coast Long Beach
We stayed at West Coast Long Beach June 5-7 and we had a great time. The hotel is located right near the water, and the room we stayed in had a balcony with a great view of the water. The hotel has a "conference resort" feel to it, and would be a very good choice if you want a laid back atmosphere. The hotel is made up of several "pods" of rooms, with each pod going up 5 floors. Access to the room is by an outside elevator. One thing we did notice is that to get to the elevator, you had to climb about 10 stairs. This would pose a problem for people who are handicapped, but in all fairness, they may have access to other pods that do not require climbing of stairs. Our room was spacious, but the bathroom was a little small. We honestly didn't mind as we spend more time in the room. It was clean and had no smells. The room had a closet to store your luggage, a king-size bed, couch, table and two chairs. You had plenty of room to walk around and not feel cramped. It also offered a coffee pot with coffee and a small refrigerator which came in handy for us. We could see the Queen Mary and the Spruce Goose from our room, it was about a 5-7 minute walk. Behind the hotel there are walking paths which stretch around the water which is nice to walk or jog. Across the water we could see Shoreline Village, a nice little area of restaurants and shops. They have a restaurant on property which is nice. There was no construction at the hotel. We stayed two nights and had a great time. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you want a laid back, conference resort type of stay. It was a great experience.
Best place to stay in Long Beach
In May 2004, my wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Coast Hotel, Long Beach before we sailed on Carnival. We saw several nice hotels in downtown Long Beach, like the Westin, Hilton, and Renaissance. My question is-why would you want to stay downtown when you can enjoy a great room with a balcony only a few feet from the waterfront. The location and view are outstanding, the landscaping very well manicured, the pool is great, and the food in the restaurant is good as well! However, best of all, the staff is professional and extremely courteous. This was our first stay, yet we felt like we were family. Michael the front desk manager was one of the most professional and efficient customer service employees that I have ever met. Quidos to you, Michael. All in all it's the best place to stay in Long Beach-why stay anywhere else!!
Live in the area and believe this to be one of the best locations of you are staying in the area. Dont know about the hotel itself because I have never stayed here. As far as location goes it is one of the few true waterfront properties. Not beachfront, waterfront. It is in a harbor. Walking distance to Queen Mary and some great restaurants.
Would recommend for those visiting from out of town.
Relaxing and Hospitable Hotel
Very pleased with Hotel location on the Queensway Bay front at Long Beach, with just a short stroll along the shoreline to The Queen Mary where you charged $10 per night car parking! Its free the The Coast!
Rooms very clean and comfortable with good sized balconies/patios, plus excellent facilities - TV, fridge, coffee maker and fresh towels every day. Comfortable beds. Reception staff very helpful especially David the Concierge. Good resturant and bar service. Pleasant patio outside restuarant for balmy evening drinks and snacks. Well kept grounds - grass cutting starts at 6.30am! Good swimming pool plus clean walkways.
Definitely stay again.
Don't overlook this hotel!
This is a fine hotel in a great, quiet location, with rooms at a reasonable rate. The rooms are well-appointed, roomy, and clean (our carpet was a bit old, but clean). The grounds are immaculate, the pool clean, and the hotel is just two blocks from the Queen Mary. A free shuttle bus to downtown Long Beach (3 minute drive) and Belmont Shores runs by the hotel 2-4 times/hour. The hotel is on the water and has wonderful views of downtown Long Beach and the marina (10-15 minute walk). And last but not least, the staff is friendly and helpful.
Great place to stay!
Very pleased with this hotel. We had booked this hotel overnight on our way to Catalina Island from Canada. We were pleasently surprised at the cleanliness, well-decorated rooms, heated pool, and food (and service) at the attached resturant. People all very friendly and helpful. Very short walk on the coast to the Queen Mary Hotel (nice tour of this place). Ferry to Calatina Island close by. Nice and quiet right on the water opposite the main city bustle. Reasonabley priced, too. Would specifically ask next time for a room facing the water as view would have been much better.
Very Nice Affortable Hotel
Very Nice Hotel, got a weekly rate at $45/night. Know some that got a few nights at $40/night. Older structure, but room redone. Frig & Coffee in room but would be nice to have a microwave. Close to Long Beach, on the water, and quiet. Nice Grounds. Very Close to Queen Mary. I would stay there again. They are still working on updating rooms, but are doing it one building at a time so you wouldn't be in a building being refurb.
