    « Nice out-of-season stay in Long Beach, WA »

    We had occasion to make an out-of-season visit to Long Beach WA stayed at the Best Western on Pacific Ave. It's location is ideal for strolling up Long Beach's main street to sample all it's shops and restaurants. The motel staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast was the standard BW fare and was nicely arranged in a roomy area adjacent to an equally roomy seating area. The motel's wifi was fast and reliable. The motel has a convenient elevator a few steps from the reception desk.

    It was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend it to family & friends. The bed was way too soft for me, but didn't take away from the quality of our stay.Yes, I would stay at this hotel again if ever the opportunity arises. Next time I will use the fitness facility.

    « Another great stay at BW »

    This was our first time at this BW location. It was very clean and well kept, inside and out. We had a King size bed with a small living area which included a couch, table, chairs. Would definitely stay here again. The staff were super. They all were very polite, courteous, professional and accommodating. They helped make this a wonderful visit.

    The hotel was a great price and conveniently located to shops and restaurants. The room was nice and the breakfast was good with hot items such as eggs and sausage included. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Hotel was nice »

    The hotel is recently remodeled. The lobby looks great. All of the hotel staff was very nice. Had seen other complaints of the rooms smelling like dog however we did not have that issue at all. Stayed on the second floor and room smelled clean and could also open the windows to let fresh air in. Walking distance to all of the little shops and restaurants.

    « Long Beach »

    This hotel was fine. Average, has buffet breakfast of waffles, sausages, potatoes and omelettes. If was nice and had soft beds, instead of the hard ones we usually find. They allow pets, which was a huge plus. But online stated they had ocean views, which was not the case at all. Oh yea, right after we walked in, I found short, curly, black hairs on the tub edge... a bit gross!

    I had personal business in Longbeach and had never been there before. I found the Hotel to be very accommodating, the employees where happy and helpful. It was centrally located and easy to find. Also within walking distance to the beach. I am a runner and had one of the best runs of my life on the beach.

    « front desk »

    I work for Washington state and I make reservations throughout the state for my crew members, I called to make four reservations front desk said they would call back twice that day, no callback I called the next day and asked if they were able to get those confirmations, this was a polite call front desk once again said they would call back. no call back so I found another motel and no problems. I try to stay at B W when I can, very impressed by there professional people and there motels this was the first time in over 20yrs of calling motels that they called my supervisor (long beach B W ) and said my altitude was not to there liking ???????

    « Two days family beach trip »

    A little disappointment when arrived from a long road trip to find out your reserved room was not ready at check-in time and the elevator was broken with a promised statement that it will be fixed in few hours! After check-out day, the elevator still not working.

    « Nice stay »

    We had an overnight stay for our cruise vacation. It was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. The complementary breakfast was good. The shuttle driver Martin gave great advice about the area attractions. The fact that the hotel had shuttle service for airport and cruise port was definitely a money saver.

    « Great property, subpar front desk »

    This hotel is getting 4 stars despite my experience with the front desk because everything else was great. The room we stayed in was clean, spacious, and a great value. Parking was plentiful. Amenities in-room included reliable and free wifi, quiet AC, a flat-screen tv, microwave, and mini-fridge. The location is walking distance to the beach! The housekeeping and food service staff were friendly and courteous, and the included breakfast was delicious! It included quite a wide variety of hot and cold foods, even a waffle maker! However, access to the front desk was atrocious. We arrived at 4pm and there was no one at the front desk. No bell to ring. Nothing. We just stood there waiting to check-in for about 5 minutes when a housekeeper saw us and said he would go find the attendant. He checked on us 5 minutes later and she still wasn't there. So he tried again. Finally, she showed up saying she "really needed coffee" and "sorry for inconvenience". In the room, there was no phone number for the front desk, and no instructions for how to contact housekeeping. When it was time to check out, we arrived at the front desk at precisely 10:59AM. We hurriedly packed so that we would be on time to check out before 11AM...but the attendant was MIA once again. So we stood there waiting at an empty desk AGAIN for her to show up and let us pay and check out. Not a great way to begin or end the stay! However, overall, the rest of the hotel experience was quite pleasant. If we visit Long Beach again, we may give the Best Western a second chance to improve their service.

    « We had a great stay! »

    The hotel was newly renovated so the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast was better than others we have had at Best Westerns with a good selection of different options. It was nice the hotel was an easy walk to the main part of Long Beach with all of the different shops and then an easy bike ride to the Discovery Trail.

    « Did not clean room »

    We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 small grand kids. They did not clean our room the entire stay. We had to collect our own towels and toilet paper from the front desk and take out our own garbage. They told us they were having trouble with new staff. Hopefully they get this figured out for future guests. On the last night the front desk attendant was trying to call a housekeeper back but was not having any luck. Even if they were successful what are we supposed to do with a 3 year old and 7 year old at 8pm while they clean our room?

    « good value »

    Good value, clean and comfortable. The staff was all in training, so hard to complain about the sketchy desk service. But, they were trying. When you arrive, just look for a large blue building, as there is absolutely nothing to identify it, not even a street number. Perhaps this will jog them to get on the ball.

    « Annaversary Weekend Getaway »

    This place is located in the heart of Downtown Long beach which is why I gave it a 5 star location rating. It's perfect for Familes/little ones and what not as they have a Funland place and also a few small rides. The restaurants and beach are a very short walking distance. The front desk gal Hannah was awesome, she went out of her way to personally deliver fresh warm cookies and chocolate milk to our room when we had come back that evening and she told us to help ourselves to some cookies from around the corner and they were all gone. however if your looking for even a little peace and quiet I would go somewhere else. The guests like to slam their doors and a 4:00am wake up call and loud talking was not so special in our opinion. I assume it was maybe fishing time. The bed was a little on the uncomfortable side, but we like a really firm mattress so that is just personal preference. I would recommend checking the towels however as one of ours was stained. Another bummer was that they were having problems with the free Wifi. All in all it was a good stay and the town is very friendly. I would recommend the Castaway's Restaurant for a great meal, they have the best clam chowder I have tasted..and I have tasted plenty. As stated above this hotel is great for Family fun, however we will most likely find another Hotel or B&B where it is a little quieter.

    « Nice Bed But. . . »

    This hotel was recently renovated and therefore everything was relatively new or refreshed in appearance. The king sized bed in which we slept was very comfortable. The room reflected that this was just a standard BW Hotel. The room service was inadequate in that very little was done by staff while were out of the room. The breakfast that was provided was better than other BW we have been at, but still at best only adequate. Just so that you know, this hotel does not have a pool or hot tub.

    « Best Western in Name only »

    Not your typical Best Western property. I don't recommend this hotel. If you are looking for the BW name and experience, the drive across the river to Astoria Lincoln Inn is well worth the extra time. My wife and I were very disappointed with this property. It was filthy, the staff did not seem to value me as a customer, the breakfast horrific and the just an overall poor experience. I spend about 20 nights a year in hotels in the NW and this one failed to meet any of my expectations for a BW property.

    « Highly Recommend Best Western Long Beach Inn »

    Easy access, in the middle of town, clean room, comfy beds, great pillows, air conditioning (which a lot of hotel's in Long Beach don't have), adequate breakfast, more choices than most, but the best was the customer service. Started off with Lana getting me help with a special room request, manager Lindsay making that happen and finally Hanna giving us her clam chowder so we didn't have to go out late to eat. What more can you ask for?!! Will definitely stay again. Thank you so much ladies for making our stay so pleasant.

    Everything was great! Amazing price difference between Long Beach and Astoria, almost $100 cheaper. Came up to the Northern OR coast for the light houses and found out it was much cheaper to stay in Washington. We hit the light houses on the north side of the Columbia and then back south into OR.

    The hotel is just renovated recently. Everything there is very new. It will be nice if there is swimming pool and spa but the Long Beach is just few minutes walk away. The bed is a bit solf but it may be just my own personal preference .

    « Wonderful Friendly Staff but Less than Clean »

    The staff at the hotel is so sweet and friendly. At check in our room was a bit dusty and dirty. There was a dirty diaper in the bathroom trash along with some uneaten fruit. Luckily the next day the cleaning crew took care of it and seemed to clean the room a bit better. The window was also a bit dusty when we moved the curtains..so we didn't do that again! The breakfast was okay. Although they heated the eggs up in plastic bags and dumped them into the metal serving pans. That was a bit concerning. It is very conveniently located though and the staff again was so nice.

    « Great customer service »

    « Service is Either Excellent or Poor Depending on Who's at the Front Desk »

    The reservations process was smooth and friendly. The check-in was not. The woman at the front desk told us that the room we were booked into did not exist. The other woman at the front desk corrected that problem and we got the room we booked. The service from all of the staff was great except for the one woman at the front desk who also checked us out of our room while we were still in the middle of our stay. Someone came into the room to inspect it, thinking we had checked out!! There are still some kinks to iron out at this hotel, but overall it has been remodeled nicely and most of the staff is highly professional. The tub didn't drain and the elevator was really loud, but the bed was super comfortable and the breakfast was good.

    « Small Rooms »

    The check in went well, when we got to our rooms we found them to be somewhat small. If I sat at the desk working on my computer no one could get by me. Not used to a BW being quit so small. The room was nice and the beds comfortable. The hotel is small but certainly adequate, close to all the town activites. .

    « cramped »

    The room was much smaller than most BW. the room had very little room to sit at the desk then try to get by anyone sitting there. No couch or a place to sit except the bed. There was a small table with two chairs and a lamp taking up most of the room on the table. Breakfast was average. Nicer hotel for less money to stay in.

    « Best remodel I've seen »

    « Really Impressed »

    Just in town for one night and wish it could have been longer! I was so impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of Patricia, who checked me in. Also, I was pleasantly surprised at how new and updated the entire hotel was. I stay in a lot of BW's when traveling and this was one of the nicest ones. I only interacted with a couple of other staff members and they were also great. The fitness room was perfect. I will definitely be coming back!

    This property is very nice, clean and comfortable with many nearby places to eat , shop or whatever else you, might like to do to kick back nd relax and enjoy the beaches nearby.

    « Good Place Close to everything. »

    Very few rooms were available. We told them we could deal with a Queen Handicap Room, but only if it wasn't needed. The room was satisfactory, nothing special. It would have been nice to have an easy chair in the room. Other than the small size of the room it satisfied our need for one night. You are within walking distance of many activities available in Long Beach. We used the large comfortable lobby to visit with friends. The Breakfast area was better than most. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Greeted everyone as a special guest.

    Felt welcome from the minute we entered the hotel. Hanna at the front desk made us feel at home, very friendly and provided answers to all our many questions.

    Great location and a brand new place. One of the best breakfast buffets I have had anywhere. Just half a block off the main "strip" . Check in a little slow but maybe because our confirmation said 3PM check in and the sign on the counter said 4pm. Will definitely go back again

    From check in to check out the staff was a solid 10 ! Lois the breakfast attendant was very personable with guests chatting with, and helping were needed. The breakfast was impressive and had something for everyone, even the 12yr old in our party! I would not hesitate to stay again for much longer than just a night. The location...you are right in the middle of town...walk to everything...You'll love it!

    « Just off the mark »

    I knew at my arrival that this was not the Best Western that I have been accustomed to staying. There was a dog leaving that had been behind the counter as well as numerous dogs in the lobby area. The desk clerk could not process my rewards certificate and became rude when we asked questioned concerning the availability of other rooms. The problem with the certificate was resolved the next morning however this Best Western was just short of standards expected.

    Flawless experience with this property from checkin to checkout. Great location within walking distance to nearly everything we wanted to do.

    « Remodel, Staff, Amenities: A+ »

    We were impressed - and surprised - by how nice this hotel was remodeled and the friendly way we were greeted when checking in. It still has vibes of its Super 8 past including very narrow hallways and doors that are grouped together. When one slams shut, you can hear and feel it rattle the whole floor from inside your room! That said, the 3rd floor king suite we stayed in was extremely clean and spacious with lovely blue and green décor. Well worth the extra $$ per night. It had a convenient wet bar, huge screen TV and a couch, ottoman, but very uncomfortable chair. The beds are amazingly plush and comfortable; clearly a superior product and we slept like babies! We were on the back side where there's an arterial road; sometimes used a lot by delivery trucks and other vehicles, other times it's pretty quiet. The location, central and just off the main road, couldn't be better for access to the beach, downtown, restaurants and the boardwalk. It is a GREAT thing to have A/C at the coast even on cooler days and it worked very well. Tip: don't stay in a hotel without one if you're near the water as it gets stuffy and humid quickly. The breakfast had lots of good choices including hot items. It would be hard to complain about the all you can eat selection, nice tables and chairs, and a fireplace w/TV to watch as you have your meal in an open setting. Best Western could be more aggressive about adopting "Green" water practices, like putting out signage so guests can decide to re-use towels and sheets, etc. or forgo housekeeping. We had interaction with several staff and found them to be immensely helpful, courteous and eager to make our stay a pleasant one.

    « Overcharged...underimpressed »

    Staff needs to be trained on how to use computer system and what to do when a smoke alarm goes off in the middle of the night. Dog poop in the elevator for multiple days. even though the staff was under trained, they were very nice and polite.

    « Birthday Getaway »

    I was very impressed with this hotel. Their recent remodel was beautiful and the hotel was very clean! The female agent at check in on Friday night 6/10 was lovely! We stayed in the suite on the third floor and loved the room's layout and how spacious it was. Didn't hear much from our neighbors which was nice. It's an excellent location, good parking, and good breakfast. I've been born/raised WA and this was my first trip to Long Beach, I've always gone to Ocean Shores, and I definitely enjoyed seeing new sites. Great birthday weekend indeed!

    This is my first stay since remodel and change to Best Western. They did a great job and the lobby looks modern and inviting. The bed is fantastic which will bring me back. Super nice HD TV with great cable. Kudos for everything on the upgrade EXCEPT....What is with the broken down plumbing fixture in the shower???? About to fall off the wall and the drain was clogged. So a cold shower that keeps your ankles chilled!!!! Staff was great and got me key to room next door to shower. But with the attention to detail made for the rest of the remodel made this issue stand out.

    We stayed here on a Saturday night. The best thing about this hotel is the location. If you've come to Long Beach to walk to all the shops, this hotel is right in the middle of them all. We've been to Long Beach many times, and remember when this was the Super 8. It has been remodeled since those times but it's a safe bet they didn't break the bank to do it. It's still a Super 8 with up-graded fixtures to make it look classier. The mattresses in the room we had were well worn and super soft, both my wife and I had sore backs in the morning after tossing and turning all night. No matter how low you set the A/C, it will only cool the room to about 75 degrees. Both the sink and shower fixtures were backwards. If you wanted Hot, turn it to cold! The breakfast was just O.K. The variety was decent for a "free breakfast", but at $197.00 a night I don't think it was free. Although it was more like a Free-for-all when trying to get to any of it. In my day, parents didn't let their children run around like a bunch of wild....native Americans.

    We met family in Long Beach WA and all stayed at the Best Western. All very impressed with the cleanliness, décor and rooms. The staff was so helpful and so friendly. We traveled with our two young kids and although there is no pool, the ocean is very close and so if the town of Long Beach where there is a fun center, arcade, games, etc.so really no need for a pool. The complimentary breakfast is really good. Our kids loved making their own waffles and all of us were surprised by how wide of selection they provided. The hotel was quiet, clean and very well cared for.

    « Not my most favorite property »

    I understand the property has been recently converted from a hotel of another brand. The rooms have been updated and freshly appointed with new furniture. However, and unfortunately, the "bones" are the same. To be specific, the room with one queen-size bed was very generous for two but the bathroom in our room had far too little counter space. The hotel is nicely located within walking distance to shops, stores, and fine restaurants. The beach is close but it's a walk.

    « Great place to stay! »

    Best Western Hotel , Long Beach, WA Great place to stay! 4 out of 5 Recommended for Everyone by Judi, Vancouver, WA Great place to stay! Posted Apr 28, 2016 Pros: The staff, very clean and well kept, close to the beach and restaurant's and shopping virtually 2 minutes from the hotel! Right downtown where all the restaurants and shopping are. Also just a short walk to the beach. Ideal! It exceeded my expectations by a long shot. I had my dog Ollie with me and I was so pleased how pet friendly they all were. Our room was very clean and well cared for. The staff was wonderful and our breakfast was really good. Lois that does the cooking and serving at breakfast makes you feel right at home. Breakfast end time is 9am and Lois told me she keeps on cooking until everyone is fed. That was so nice as I really am not one for eating early. The food was very good and a lot to choose from. You don't feel like you're staying in a hotel. It feels like home! Cons: When we left the hotel we checked out with the front desk. We were not given a respite of our final bill. I checked my credit card when we got home and found an additional charge for $127.62, I called up and talked to Kristina who said $ 25.00 was for our pet, even though their internet ad said $ 15.00 for pets. She then said there was a $ 100.00 charge because we had been smoking in the room. I had been smoking in the parking but used a cup to put my butts in so they wouldn't have to clean my mess. The maid found the cup and reported that we were smoking in the room. When I called about the charges to Kristina who was very nice and understood, said she would remove the charge. It took 8 days for this charge to be removed. Many thanks to Kristina, Jessica and Linzie, we will be seeing you again soon.

    « Lodging has been remodeled, upgraded and improved »

    We last stayed at this lodging in August of 2015, when it was in transition from its former owner and name to become one of the Best Western chain. At the time we gave it three stars and said it had a great location but still had a long way to go to warrant a higher rating of four stars, because of the outdated decor, the "charge whatever you think you can get" frame of mind by the people at thefront desk, and the very skimpy breakfast. The remodeling was in full swing while we were there, with signs of consturction all over the place. Now the major remodeling is done and sthe transformation from a semi-ugly ducking to a swan has been completed and the results are very, very good. The decor is now modern and muted with greens and blues and whites -- very beachy and just right for a beach town. On the down side, the rooms are still on the smaller side, as they were before, and the bathrooms are just a little bigger than tiny, but at least the rooms look a lot nicer, lighter and brighter and our king size bed was just fine - not too soft, not too firm. Keep in mind that although you are only a couple of blocks from the beach, there is no view for those rooms on the beach side because of a wooded lot right across the street from the motel. If you are willing to spring for much more to get a king bed suite instead of just a motel room, those are on the third (top) floor on the north side and those do have a little distant view of the beach and the ocean. Otherwise, you either get a parking lot view or a view of the street and trees. But one of the biggest upgrades is in their now full breakfast as compared with their skimpy continental breakfasts of the past. Now you not only get the usual cereals, hot and cold, plus the usual individually wrapped danish, but the popular waffle maker, plus very good scrambled eggs, juicy and spicy link sausage, and browned chunky potatoes, along with regular coffee, and a very good, rich decaf coffee, plus orange and apple juices, two or three kinds of bread for toasting, etc. A very big improvement. And, of course, they still have the middle of town great location, which is also just about three blocks from the sandy beach. They have done a very nice job of upgrading and updating the former property, and are now deserving of four stars and a "very good" rating.

    I was so pleased with what Best Western has done to this hotel. It is beautiful and all the updates were such an improvement from Super 8. The rooms are updated, lobby is sensational. Price was within my budget. This hotel is located in the middle of Long Beach so you can walk anywhere.

    Very nice remodel. Kristina and staff very professional and friendly. Love the A/C in room. The added Items to the complementary breakfast was a big hit. Now has full breakfast. 24 hour coffee was very good. Could lower the rates for Local events too much for my budget.

    « Great new addition to Best Western »

    Our first trip to Long Beach in years. This Best Western was delightful, staff was so friendly. The mid-century modern interior and furnishings give it a wonderful vibe. We're already looking at our calendar to figure out when we can return! The mattress was a bit soft for my back, but I think most people would find it just right. Super quiet, too!

    « Razor Clamming »

    Wonderful hotel! Recently re-modeled so everything still nice and new. Few glitches still being worked out. Staff (Jessica and Hannah) are on top of things and were exceptionally accommodating for our needs. Warm cookies in the evening! Very decent breakfast in the mornings, enough to satisfy your needs to get going. Room was not cleaned the next day; we had the 'do not disturb' sign out while we had breakfast, but took it down when we left for the morning of razor clamming. Went back out for the day, room was not done. We endured. Unable to print in the business center due to glitches. Remote control needed adjustments as well. Other than that, a very wonderful place to stay. I would do so again.

    « Very nice hotel with lackluster service. »

    Hotel property was very well maintained, as if just remodeled. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. The only exception to a great stay was the check in process and preoccupation of the staff and the lack of attentiveness to the guests. This definitely set the wrong tone for our stay. The only other complaint was that there was popcorn under and around the bed, when we arrived in the room.

    « Right in the heart of everything »

    We stayed here for 2 nights for a pleasure trip in the off season. We really enjoyed that this hotel was right in the middle of the shops and restaurants and also very close to the beach. We were able to bring our dog and we had our kids. There was some trouble with a noisy neighbor late at night but the evening clerk promptly handled it, persisting until the guests responded which we greatly appreciated! We had no problems with regular noise, just a very loud movie. Space in the rooms with 2 queens is very limited, but they do a good job with the space you do have.

    « One of the Best Hotels We've Stayed In »

    This hotel is brand new - everything has just been renovated. The property felt clean, modern, and just has a great energy about it. Rooms were very spacious, beds extremely comfortable, and the breakfast was great. Location is perfect, situated very close to a great stretch of beach. We drove out onto the beach the next morning during low tide to watch the locals dig for razor clams. Breakfast was a blur because the hotel was so busy. The hotel had one staffer, Lois, running the entire breakfast operation and she was simply the best. We recognized her effort with a tip, and she said that she loves to serve people. The front desk staff was equally as friendly and helpful, and they called us to confirm our arrival since we were coming in late. This place is a MUST STAY if you are visiting or passing through Long Beach.

    « Mostly brilliant with a couple of niggles »

    We had a fantastic warm welcome on arrival and the reception staff explained the hotel's amenities to us including freshly baked cookies in the evening and hot breakfast. The room was very nicely decorated and looked brand new. Beds were lovely and comfortable too. The only niggles I had was the room was unbearably hot even with the a/c going. Also there were no cookies available when I went down to reception before bed which was disappointing also when we got down to breakfast a full hour before its scheduled closing time there were no breakfast meats left just dry scrambled eggs and the normal breads/pastries etc. The hotel is lovely and I am sure these niggles will be ironed out in due course. I would recommend it for anyone staying in long beach.

    « Ideal Location »

    I enjoyed a one-night weekend stay while in town for an event. As others have said, it is a freshly updated property. I found the staff to be friendly, accommodating, professional, and personable. The room (mine was centrally located on the top floor) was spacious and nicely appointed in a manner consistent with mid-range hotels/motels. The only two areas I felt were shortcomings in the room were the size of the easy chair and the bathroom countertop. The chair was almost small enough to be labeled uncomfortable. I was glad there was a nice footstool, otherwise the chair would have been not to my liking. The bathroom countertop wasn't. It was merely a sink set in a surround, with virtually no room to set a Dopp kit/shaving bag, or much of anything. And when you did set something, best be careful not to knock it into the sink or off into/onto the toilet. The hotel is nicely central to the main tourist area of downtown Long Beach. The shops, restaurants, and not-to-be-missed bakery are all within easy walking distance, as is the beach, itself. There is, however, no view of the beach from the hotel. This is not a problem, just something folk should be aware of when booking. My room was on the top floor, west facing, and the only view there is of a city street and the trees and underbrush that have overtaken the dunes area between the city and the beach.

    « Pet friendly? Gay friendly? No... »

    I was supposed to check in yesterday. I made reservations on a popular 3rd party website many weeks in advance. When making the reservation, the web site indicated pets were allowed for a 15 dollar per night fee. The best western website said, and this is a direct quote, "pets are always welcome for an additional fee". Nothing was said about contacting the hotel in advance, which, if you book a lot of pet rooms (like I do) is important to note. Properties that have a limited number of rooms make these requests. This property did not. I decided to contact the hotel anyway. I wanted to give them a heads up as a courtesy. Kristina answered the phone and at first I gave her my partners name to find the reservation. Nope. That names note here. I then gave her mine and she found it. Great. Vey quickly afterwards she said "we do not have any pet rooms with a single queen"... Ok... Well what are my options. "You could cancel your reservation and rebook". Okay... Is there any way I can just pay an upgrade instead of going through the trouble? "No." Okay can you confirm that a room will be available if I do this? "Sure, one moment - actually we are all out of pet rooms for the night." This is when I asked Kristina what the "always" means on the website. She said pet "Are always welcome... in the designated pet rooms...". The website should say that instead of always.... ALWAYS is a defined word. It means something. So we went back and fourth, Kristina's voice getting increasingly condescending about how this is my fault for not calling earlier, how they (bw) can't guarantee anything from a third party, and that there is nothing that can be done. It was very obvious in her tone that I was an inconvenience and was not wanted (I can take a hint). Okay. Well can I have a full refund then? "Yes just call (third party), they will call me, and I mill authorize a full refund". Great. I was being really inconvenienced, and treated poorly, was made to feel like a child but that's fine. I can get a refund and find a nicer place. I mentioned how I'm would be writing a review of the experience and that I felt like this situation could have been avoided if they were more honest in their pet policy. I was not very happy by the end of the call. So I call the third party and explain everything. While I'm waiting on the line, while they called the hotel regarding the refund, it hits me. Maybe Kristina does not like gay people? First the room I booked wasn't pet friendly, then none of them were available, her tone towards me was very rude after I had given her two names of the same gender... No no no that can't be. The customer service rep comes back on the line. He said the hotel is only willing to offer a full refund if I promise not to write a review (I have this recorded, the third party has one of those "your call may be monitored" messages which gives consent). What??? That is blackmail. I am not ageeeing to that. I had a bad experience.... Possible false advertising.... Possible discrimination... I will be writing A review. So I called best western customer service. These are all independently owned so nothing they could do. They opened a case though. I called Kristina back and let her know tha I would not agree to any refund where I cant leave a review. I would like a full refund. I was denied a room that I paid for... I called as a courtesy to the hotel (and I am glad I did!) about a pet room that would "always" be available, and I was feeling more and more like I was being discriminated against. She went on to talking about how I was trying to blackmail her for a refund, and that I can do whatever I want, she will be able to sleep at night knowing she was in the right. I felt like I was in the twilight zone. I called the booking agency back, they talked to her, I was given a full refund. So things ended up okay. The whole town was booked last night so we had to go to seaside,or.... Which is great. I am writing this review as a heads up to people with pets... Pets are not "always" allowed or welcome here. I am also writing as a gay person. I don't known how things would have turned out had I not given two names of the same gender initially... But the word "always" means something. When I was denied a room that means there is something wrong with me, personally, and that's the only thing that comes to mind. She also never denied it so there is that. If you are gay and have a pet, you might not be given a room. I can't speak to the quality of the rooms, but the service was not good. This hotel is engaged in something illegal either way. False advertising "pets are always welcome", or discrimination (you can't discriminate against people who are gay). Maybe both. Definitely one of them though, so the WA state attorney general has also been notified. Kristina is the manager of the hotel by the way. BEWARE.

    We were originally booked with another hotel through Hotels.com, and Hotels.com cancelled our reservations after we left for our trip, and after confirmation, saying there was no vacancy there. Cedars Ocean View Inn, called Best Western Long Beach Inn, told them our situation, and they just took over and took care of us!!! An amazing staff just made our stay the best when we were there. Hannah made sure everything was just right for us, and they even had freshly baked, warm chocolate chip cookies for us!!! The rooms were beautifully decorated, the gym was great as was the breakfast area. We will definitely be back!!! Thank you again to all the staff that took care of us!!!

    « Exemplary Customer Service »

    Stayed two nights, found the complete remodel and warm staff a lovely combination. Central location to the town (as opposed to beach view), We were there for clamming so had three days to see a lot of guest interaction with housekeeping, desk staff, even the lovely breakfast host. Nothing but excellence. New decor is nice, apparently the remodel was mid 2015. Our room door was ill-fitted to it's frame. But our overall experience was so positive, and the rate so good, I felt the BW earned it's 5 stars.

    « Responsive Management »

    I entered a review earlier this morning with high marks but a suggestion for reduce breakfast waste and offering people with gluten and dairy allergies some more options (although bacon and eggs was a great start). The manager responded promptly and asked for suggestions for such foods, and then responded that she'd make a point of starting to make them available. That's pretty impressive. On top of the great responsiveness of the front desk staff.

    « Nice, new Best Western »

    We decided to spend Leap Year Day at the ocean and chose this hotel for the night. When we showed up, their sign said check-in was at 4, but our paperwork said 3. They were still able to get us a room right away, though. We found out it has only been a Best Western for about 3 weeks and it shows. Everything was newly remodeled, even to the point of still having that "fresh paint' smell in a few areas (not in the rooms, luckily). The entire hotel was clean and fresh, which is a nice treat. The staff was friendly and helpful. They even let us talk their ears off for a while. Of course, since this was winter season it was not as busy so we could talk. The nicest touch, as far as I'm concerned, is our morning wake-up call was by a real person, not a machine. He even said "you're welcome" when I said "Thank you". The room was very nice and larger than I expected. Sound did not travel through the walls (we were right next to the registration area) so we were able to get a good night's sleep. And for someone with a tall husband, having the shower head raised was bonus. I could tell it was the off-season because even though they had a nice continental breakfast it scaled back and it was hard to find something my husband could have (allergies to some milk products) and there was no fruit available. I did not expect the omelets, though. Nice touch. The trickiest part about this hotel is their entry. Even though their address is on Ocean Beach Blvd, the main entrance is on Pacific Ave. We will definitely consider staying here again next time we're in the area.

    « So Close to Really Good »

    We arrived in Long Beach at the tail end of one of the city's clam-dig weekends. Crowded streets and an almost carnival atmosphere made the town of Long Beach more fun than one would expect in February. We checked into the Long Beach Inn after wrestling with the GPS. More on that in a minute. The room was comfortable and well-appointed. It smelled really good. (That's a big deal to us.) The bed was very comfortable. Some of the other reviewers had issues with the distance to the beach. Come on, people! Suck it up, Buttercup! The four block walk will do you good. The beach itself is kind of, how can I put this politely...ugly. It is long, but the sand is gray and unappealing. You can drive on it, though. Always a good time, there. There were hundreds of people clamming and a few people with kites. Kids and kites on the beach. What can be better than that? Before leaving, we had the continental breakfast. The selection wasn't great. But the waffles were really good! The price was more than reasonable and we would probably return, as long as the visit was for pleasure. So, why just three stars? Because the front desk failed me in one of the most important tasks they have. I travel for both business and pleasure. I MUST MUST be able to count on the wake-up call. It is a vitally important part of my hotel stay. The call never came. If this had been a business stop, I would have been in a very bad way. *Travelers' Tip* The hotel is in the process of being rebranded a Best Western. Your GPS may not find it and the hotel website doesn't say whether the address is 500 NORTH Ocean Beach or 500 SOUTH Ocean Beach. It is 500 South Ocean Beach

    My partner in crime and I stayed here for a weekend of geocaching on Washington's south and Oregon's north coasts. It rained and there was a small craft advisory all weekend, but that's beside the point. This place has been newly remodeled and I'm impressed. It has modern decor, is clean, a good deal, has hot continental breakfast, and is pet-friendly. The photos are true to what is posted (I've included some photos as well). Pros: - Clean - Nice, modern decor throughout - Soft, comfortable beds - Wide range of TV channels - Free Wi-Fi - Pet friendly - Great price for location and amenities - Close to the beach Cons (and this is really nit-picking): - The toilet. It flushes. But at the speed of the flush, it's enough to make you wonder whether the job will get done (which it always did). - Toilet paper is at a weird angle so not super convenient, but also not the worst I've seen. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area. It's nice for business or leisure. We opted for here instead of the more pricey stays in Astoria.

    The hotel and our room were very clean, everything looked brand new, super comfy bed. The wheelchair room worked great for my husband and we enjoyed a dog friendly room as well. I liked the proximity to a good walking area for the dog across the street and close to the beach. The breakfast was great, good hot and cold selections.
