We have stayed three times at the Coastal Inn during the past 11 months and will be staying there again very soon. Josh & Kristin, the new owners, are doing an amazing job renovating what was an old tired property. Each time we have stayed the rooms are immaculate, beds extremely comfortable and the rates are really reasonable. We have stayed during the Rod Run, over the Thanksgiving weekend and in the spring for a get-away, each time we were very pleased with our stay. The location is great and I selfishly hope that it stays a somewhat 'hidden gem' as I would be disappointed if we could not get a room here when we want to dash to the ocean for some R & R!

Walls are paper thin. You will here every voice through the walls. The manager does not care if you make a complaint. Seriously the worst hotel ever.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback here on TripAdvisor. We're sorry your stay at the #1 Coastal Inn and Suites was not what you expected. We do our very best to insure all our guests have a pleasant and enjoyable time here with us. We understand that walls between rooms can sometimes share noise as they are right next to each other, which is why we have quiet hours between 10pm and 8am. Guests are usually respectful of observing these quiet hours, and when a situation occurs otherwise, we handle it fairly and professionally. When both rooms complained the next morning about the loud music you were playing and you banging the wall with your hand, we talked with each of you to determine what the problem was and how to resolve it, as we know there are always two sides to the story. We asked that all sides next time come talk to us first before taking matters into their own hands. We are sure we will be able to find a solution, and as it happened, the following night, no other incidents occurred. We value each guest that stays with us, listening to all complaints, and do our best to fairly resolve any issue.
It is our hope you and all other travelers experience a relaxing stay at the #1 Coastal Inn and Suites as we work very hard towards that goal. Hopefully, our desire to be helpful to our guests was demonstrated by providing a place for your husband to fix his truck. Dealing with a vehicle on vacation is never any fun. As a courtesy, no charges will be placed on your bill for the missing hand towels and bath towels.
Thank you again for your feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we can better serve our guests here in Long Beach.

Sincerely,

The Innkeepers

My profession brings me regularly to the Long Beach peninsula – as it has for the last 25 plus years. During that time I’ve stayed in many of the local small motels, some good and some not so good. However, this year my crew and I found a new “home away from home” – the Coastal Inn and Suites. The new owner Josh and his bride Kristin have taken this small motel and have turned it into a very warm, welcoming and relaxing place to stay – my definition of a true “inn”. The larger suites located on the second floor make it easy to spend several days away from home. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. I fully expect that the pride taken by the “inn keepers” to make your stay comfortable will be is obvious.

For the review scanners- This is where I am going to stay from now on when I visit LB -if they have a vacancy.

First off, Josh is totally cool. Spent some time telling us about himself, LB and the places we needed to visit while we were there. The hangman cost me three bucks and LB Roasters is Excellent I have only stayed at this hotel once and will be basing my rating from the one room in which I have stayed.

Normally, I'm VERY picky when I rate- Josh was very personable and his personality is boosting the rating I'm giving his hotel. Seriously- excellent service!

Pros: Good price for the area and, as the rooms have recently been remodeled, most everything is new. Of course, Josh is a pro. Fifty-cent Pepsi machine! Complimentary DVD's and (I believe) player (we arrived late enough that we were interested in sleep- not movies). The bathroom has excellent lighting and the bright-white paint makes everything feel clean and sterile which is good when you're fresh out of the shower (which had good pressure, drainage but typical mediocre milled hotel soap).

Cons: Even with all of the remodeling, some of the details have been overlooked- small things like pencil lines on the wall around the bath surround, nails in the wainscot that haven't been countersunk, caulked and painted, trim butt-spliced rather than overlapping- but nothing that makes this a bad hotel. Bathroom mirror shelf sloping down so things fall off of it, table with one leg that's a little too short. I viewed this hotel as a work in progress and I can totally respect the amount of time and effort they are investing to make this a nice place to stay. There is still some work to be done, but I have no doubt that they will accomplish their goals.

Josh and Wife (never got her name) bought the hotel about a year ago and have been fixing it up. Their sign on the main drag in LB is somewhat hard to spot and the outside of the hotel isn't fancy- neither are the rooms. This is not a high-end hotel. Most aspects of the room have been remodeled using relatively inexpensive materials- even so, I'm sure thousands went into each room for the upgrades and overall, the rooms are nice.

I want to thank Josh for treating us like friends from the moment he answered the phone when I called to see if they had a room available. Again, this one visit has made this hotel "My" hotel in LB.

Room Tip: Ask Josh- he won't steer you wrong!

We stayed one night mid-week during an impromptu visit to the coast. We called ahead for pricing and availability after randomly selecting a place on Google. When Josh gave us the price for a double, we were very skeptical but stopped by anyway.

What a find! I'll be honest, it doesn't look like much from the outside due to renovations in process, but I was impressed when I saw the room. Obviously, it's not a five star hotel, but it's cute, very clean, and well priced.

This place would be perfect for a romantic getaway, an extended stay when on vacation, or even just to pull of and sleep for a night. We followed all of Josh's suggestions on where to eat, where to get the best coffee, and what to see for fun- none of it was disappointing!

If this Guy's just in it for the money, he hides it well. If every business owner took this kind of pride in their establishment, there'd be no need for reviews! We will definitely be back.

Some girlfriends and I recently spent a few nights here for a Girl's Getaway weekend. What fun it was! The corner suite we stayed in had more than enough room for the four of us, and the owners even brought up an extra cot. Having the full kitchen with which to cook our own meals was probably our favorite feature. Even though this hotel sits right on the main street, our room was very quiet and provided ample room for rest and relaxation, with plenty of natural light flooding through the windows. Josh and Kristin, the owners, were so friendly and accommodating! Hot coffee and waffles in the morning was a fun treat to look forward to, as was the free use of their covered Surrey bike. Venturing across the street to the chowder house, we chatted up the owner and even she praised the hotel owners. Everyone in this little town speaks highly of them, and so do I! Plus you just can't beat the price and proximity to the water. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
