I agree with those that note the small rooms. I paid the higher price for an ocean view larger room. I was in tiny room 105. I got a side facing barely able to see the other buildings in front of the ocean small room. Tiny bathroom. Thin walls with noise thru the air vents. Noisy air conditioners. Nonetheless, we had a nice weekend. A two block walk to the beach. A fun bar scene. it looked like the restaurant was decent - although we ate at the excellent Chaba Thai and very good Geri's. The staff was eager and all smiles - although the front desk did not know if there were any Long Beach music events, could not recommend any restaurants and did not know what time breakfast started serving (OK, it was the first week they have been serving breakfast and they are still figuring things out). The rooms were clean, although we got no maid service on our two day stay. Given the limited hotel options in Long Beach, I would still recommend this hotel. Just understand what you are getting (small room near the beach) and you will be fine. If you have room in your car, bring your bikes - Long Beach is very bike friendly and having a bike will mean you do not have to give up your hard won parking space near the hotel once you get one during the end of day period when people are leaving the beach and spaces briefly open up. The hotel is at the east end of town, a little farther from the lively bar scene on the west end, although it's own bar was active with a pool table area, open bar overlooking the street area and dance club area. Everything can be reached by bike or cab. Long Beach is recovering well from Superstorm Sandy. Lots of lower floor reconstruction. The boardwalk is not supposed to be finished unitl Nov 2013. There is still a nice beach. Check out Empire Kayaks tor kayak rentals in Island Park in the bay behind Long Beach.
