Shanna G, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Longbranch Hotel & Convention Center, responded to this review

Thanks for the great comments. We appreciate the kind words about the facility and the staff. We agree the breakfast is top notch here. They have many items to choose from, so there is a little something for everyone. The 8,000 sq. ft. fitness club is a huge draw and usually a huge surprise to travelers expecting a "fitness room"....

Stay was very nice. Staff was very good and courteous. Breakfast was very good and the hours were very convenient - you didn't have to get up too early. And those running the operations were very courteous. Restaurant has some really good food. Overall good stay for the price

Nice buffet and 2 live music bands. Food was a typical Midwestern buffet, nothing remarkable. Music was 1980s and 1990s. Decent room for dancing. Crowd was decidedly older and many left early. Good value for the money.

Been on the road 40 years and this is the best hotel/motel I stay at, for so many reasons. Excellent value ! This is the best of the Best Westerns. So many other hotel/motels don't offer the full range of services as the Longbranch does and some that do don't do that good of a job doing so.

I really didn't care for this hotel. Everything about the common spaces was very dated and stale. We didn't stay in the main building, rather we stayed in the smaller building with the pool. That foyer area with a pool table and some tables and chairs had a lousy vibe and felt very old. The hot tub wasn't hot, and...

Breakfast buffet was included, and it was delicious. They had REAL eggs and sausage-no powered and fake stuff. Pastries and cereals, breads and juices. Hand made French toast blew us away. Great value and very clean. Staff were all friendly and the price was fair.

The hotel is very clean and well kept and provide an enjoyable stay and I worked both shifts during my stay and was comfortable sleeping on either shift at the hotel. I have stay here on and off since 2001 and over the years they have made positive improvements and do not even think of different options to stay at.

Hotel is very spread out from lobby to amenity rooms. We were in an accessible room in the same building as the pools, atrium, breakfast area. Long walks to Lobby, restaurant, and function rooms. Has grown like Topsy on hillsides. Not enough elevators. Very few level parking spaces - even for HDCP spaces. Very supportive staff, but facilities are old....
