“Favoulous Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

We stayed at The Varden and found the hotel to be very convenient to the downtown shops and restaurants. The owner Larry and his staff were very helpful and friendly. The service provided was fabulous. The breakfast and evening snacks provided was very good and gave us a chance to mingle with other quests. Will definitely stay here again.

When possible we like to stay at hotels that aren't part of chain but at the same time, have good reviews. We were extremely pleased with our experience at The Varden. It is a beautifully restored hotel within walking distance of many downtown restaurants and attractions. The staff was extremely hospitable and eager to assist. The room was clean, bright, and had all of the amenities required for a comfortable stay.

Whenever I come to Long Beach, I stay at this lovely and welcoming boutique hotel. The owners / managers are wonderful and always take the time to know their guests and make us feel comfortable. Always clean, simple and quiet. A wonderful getaway and secret find that I highly recommend! Catherine

I slept better in the bed at the Varden than any other hotel I have ever stayed in, hands down! The entire staff was so attentive and helped me with train schedules to get to my next destination. I really enjoyed the wine & cheese reception at the end of a long day. And the continental breakfast the next morning got my day started off just right. If you enjoy something different, local and world class service - try the Varden.

I truly enjoyed my stay at The Varden. The staff was very welcoming and genuinely wanted to make sure I had a satisfying experience at their hotel. I must say it is the best customer service I have had at a hotel. The hotel is distinguished and cozy, and I loved the daily, complimentary snacks provided! I plan to stay there again in the future.

Just off the beaten path in downtown Long Beach. Just one block to Pine St with many fine restaurants. (Kings Fish House) A short 10-15 min. walk to the Convention Center and the Shoreline area. The free red tourist bus is a right turn out the front door to the bus stop on the next block. Takes you to the Shoreline area, also connect with the ferry ($1.00) to the Queen Mary. Red bus over ferry back. Morning breakfast (fruit, muffins, cereal, tea, coffee, etc.)
Wine and snackies in the evening. The staff were tops, great value for Long Beach

Room Tip: Stayed on the second floor, room was nice size, comfy bed.
