Based on other 5 star reviews, looked this place up for a last-minute overniter planned for next day. Price of rooms unusually low for area. Got last room available for accomm's we were seeking. Glad we stayed there...would definitely go back. Have stayed at several hotels in L.B....a couple that we would not go back to. This hotel is a keeper. Mr. Paul was a gracious host who welcomed us with a smile and kind words.
If you are seeking a simple, inexpensive, not-too-far from the downtown area hotel to stay, and not expecting many luxuries, this is your place. I rated most everything average - except customer service - because the place/room could use a little updating. I understand there is a room that is updated...perhaps the owners are redoing rooms one at a time.
Property is smoke-free, however, as soon as we got into the room, there was a smoke smell. After airing the room out, didn't notice it. Everything worked well and a decent night of sleep was had by us all. Freeway noise - for a holiday, too - was unnoticeable. Pool was heated, a little cozy, something to just dip in...no laps. Water conservation is observed here, so the water pressure is very low. Other guests seemed to be fairly considerate and on the quieter side.
Overall, I would recommend this place for anyone - single, couple, family, etc.
