"OK hotel. It was very clean but had other issues. We had to have our key cards re-set repeatedly. Nothing at the front desk went quickly. The housekeeper forgot to leave fresh towels the 2nd day. We called the clerk and asked for 4 towels, but were told nothing could be done until morning. I insisted, but ended up having to pick them up from the front desk myself, and there were only 3. No AC in the hallways or elevator, though it was hot and humid out.2016-07-01"

"Nice experience. Close to Cal State Long Beach. The hotel was clean and secure. I requested a quiet room on an upper floor, and that's what I got. The AC worked well, and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Check-in was easy, and the motel clerk was efficient, friendly, and provided a list of local restaurants. Adequate breakfast with excellent coffee. Walk to Loaded Cafe for excellent burgers; you'll have to drive if you want to dine at more upscale restaurants.2018-06-12"

When I returned for a key that worked, she was rude and said maybe it wasn't the right place for me. The other clerk was apologetic. 2nd room also smelled like smoke. I'll never stay at this hotel again.2015-01-31"
"Don't have high expectations if you stay at this hotel. Nice view of the golf course from our front room, but the carpet was dirty, and there was no water for the coffee. There was hair on the toilet seat. We only got 1 key card for 2 people. The front desk clerk wasn't that friendly and didn't tell us where the vending or ice machines were. Close to the VA.2021-02-14"

"Close to the cruise terminal, but the hotel was old, dilapidated, and seemed overpriced. The bathroom was dark, the sink drain cover was missing, and the sink was coming off the wall.

"Just a 5-minute drive to the Catalina ferry. The hotel was tired, with dark rooms and furnishings, but the beds were comfortable and clean. The front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't good. Plenty of parking. Ask for a room that doesn't face Gaffey Street, as the traffic is heavy 24 hours a day. There were chain restaurants nearby.2019-11-09"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
