The hotel is located near Long Beach which I think is completely underrated as a tourist destination.The downtown area is full of wonderful shops, bars and restaurants and you can cycle down a boardwalk to the beach. Its much more quiet than Santa Monica or Venice beach so perfect if you just want to relax. The hotel also has a laundry room which for us was absolutely brilliant! The staff are really welcoming and friendly! A few members of staff really went above and beyond for us! Great place to stay, great price and good location for seeing a very different side of this city! Loved it, very helpful and caring staff.Clean rooms and loved the fact that there was a laundry room cuz we just got done camping. Very roomy and spacious felt like I was at home again.Loved it! Can't wait until our next vacation next year!
