We wanted to stay at something nice at least 3 stars, but had reasonable prices. So Priceline came thru, and this hotels is not far at all from Long Beach. Just 6 miles away:)
This wonderful Inn is located right along Cabrillo Marina and the folks are very friendly.. We had a room on the first floor that overlooked the marina from a private patio. What a fantastic view. The room is decorated very nicely and something I noticed walking down the hallway and in our room how clean it smells. The bed was very comfortable and we had all the wonderful amenties that Hilton Inns provide.
They have their own mini restaurant, bar, pool table, patio, gift shop, & computer center. Ample parking too!
A comfortable hotel located right on Long Beach, it over looks the harbour. The rooms are large and comfortable and comes fully equipped with coffee machine, and even speaker dock for your iPod. The staff is friendly and helpful except you will need to take your own luggage to the room. There is a great path the leads from back of hotel all the way down the water front. Be sure to bring your camera for some good pictures.
They have a great outdoor jacuzzi that is great for evenings.
Long Beach has a lot of nice areas to stay in. As stated above you can try the Queen Mary which is right across the bridge from Pine Street, but you would need to take a cab to get anywhere. Right off of Pine St. there are plenty of hotels. I don't know what you consider cheap, but the Renaissance is on the corner of Pine and Ocean Blvd. There is also the Hyatt, Hilton, Sheraton, Holiday Inn, etc within walking distance. If you head down Ocean blvd there are also many smaller hotels that are on the bluff over looking Long Beach and yes Long Beach has an actual beach. It might not be the best beach but it is really nice. It has a great bike/walk way that leads you right up to belmont shores and the pier heading one way and shoreline village and the pike the other. Any given day you will see plenty of windsurfers and kite boarders here. If you go even a little further south you'll run into the Belmont Shores/Naples/Alamitos Bay/2nd Street area of LB. This is a really cool part of LB also a really trendy spot as well. a couple really nice smaller hotels here too. Great shopping area and plenty of restaurants/bars. I guess it all depends on your budget and what you want to do when you're out here.... have fun!!!!
I had the pleasure of staying at the Oakwoods in Seal Beach for 7 weeks (Dec 06-Feb 07).
It advertises corporate housing and apartment rentals. I was on a travel nurse assignment to Long Beach, and this is where the company that hired me placed most of the nurses working in this area. It was actually very nice. We had a studio apartment with a murphy bed (didn't know that still made them!), small kitchen and bathroom. The place had tons of storage, a couch, coffee and end table, four burner electric stove and oven that worked better than the one in my home! Also had a small fridge, and microwave. No dishwasher, but double bowl sink anf dish drainer. They supplied the dishes, cooking ware, silverware. Not half bad! I had to add a blender and an electric mixer, a oven timer and measuring cups but I love to cook.
I was on the courtyard side on ground level. it was quiet and a gated community. I felt safe.
Several of the other nurses had complaints. One saw a mouse in her 3rd floor apartment and moved back to the Extended Stay in Long Beach. I didn't see any mice or any droppings. I did see silverfish in the bathroom. One of the nurses was on the parking lot side facing Pacific Coast Highway and asked for a coutyard apartment. they moed him rather quickly, and he was satisfied.
There were reports of mice in the shared grills near the pool. I didn't see any, but I didn't use the grills either.
The pool and spa were lovely, the exercise room was very well equipped.
Trader Joes and Wild Oats were about a mile away, a Ralphs and Albertson'd were a little more than a mile the same direction (north on PCH).
There was a Pavillions 5 blocks south on PCH, towards Main Street in Seal Beach.
Access by buss was excellent, as well as the little tourist ferrys to the marina etc.
This was an older facility, not the cleanest, but not too bad really. I heard they were renovating apartments, thie one I was in needed updating. I heard the price was 1100-1200.00 a month, but I didn't pay for my arpartment, it was paid for by my travel company. Everything there is expensive. Food, gas, rental cars...just typical of Southern California.
Hotels, motels... You always want to check about the AREA in which you are staying. ie. convenient to convenience, you know?
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or, at the least, check for your AAA symbol :)
Close proximity to the beach, univeristy, downtown, airport... Check the location first and foremost, then the amenities..
