The air-conditioner was loud but worked well. The bed was very firm.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by tony117 Poor Location
My company booked me in this Holiday Inn Property since I am a Priority Card holder. But if I had to choose I wont go to this property since it is in a rather seedy district in Los Angeles. I forgot to bring a toothbrush so I asked the hotel if they had any and they had none not even a store where they sell toiletries. So I went out and looked at a nearby store and they also didnt carry any toothbrushes.Theres nowhere around the hotel that you would like to walk around in. Its located in a rather "unsafe" area at least thats how I feel and see it.
The hotel is OK but the location isn't something I would go to.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by RobertH447 okay hotel, nothing special. but rates are too high
i have had to stay at this hotel a few times now because of its proximity to a particular business i need to go to periodically. and after each time i swear to myself to find someplace else but never get to it. the hotel is just a basic hotel in an mediocre neighborhood. its not a luxury experience by any means, but the rates i find are quite high for a hotel of this caliber. In addition, they have recently started charging $10 a day to park a car, with the explanation its for the security for the car. but there is no gate or security. i saw no guards, so its just a way to extract more money from the customer. the other thing is they do not even have a complimentary continental breakfast which causes you to either use their somewhat pricey restaurant or find a restaurant outside. lastly the individual rooms have retractors on the doors that cause the doors to slam. so in the morning when your trying to sleep, every early checkout customer, unknowing of the door retractors propensity, lets their room door slam when exiting the room. so you hear constant slamming doors every few minutes in the morning. if you plan in sleeping in at all, you can forget that with this issue.

Rated 1,0 out of 5,0 by Bwitch11 NEVER AGAIN
I will never again deviate from my tried and true practice to stay at another chani and instead, go by AAA suggested hotels. My children and I arrived at this Holiday Inn at 10pm on a SUnday night after driving 13 hours only to see a lady of he night at the corner, feral cats trolling in front of the lobby and nerfarious individuals loitering outside. I did realize the hotel was under renovation, however, it was seedy looking, the elevators were not clean and the overall expereince felt like I was in a GTA video. I ilterally unpacked my laptop long enough to get wifi and book myself at a another hotel, and we promptly checked out by 7am the next morning. I will never set foot in another HI again and will be voicing my displeasure with AAA at their suggestions. Shame on me, I should have been more diligent in my research, so anyone else out there beware. Especially if you have kids.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Wallabyterry overall service
from the moment my wife and I arrived we were treated royally.after an early arrival from a long flight, we were given a room within minutes.any request was granted with a smile, and the shuttle service was a real bonus.as renovations were just being completed, we were unable to try the restaurant. perhaps, next time. we would most certainly stay there again, when in the area.thank you for a short, but most enjoyable stay. terry mcavinue.

Good location once you venture out a bit. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and the shuttle service is great. Near enough to LA attractions but out of the mayhem.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by jacqui53 Very pleasantly surprised with this property
I had to attend a conference at St. Mary's Medical Center a few weeks ago, and the Holiday Inn was conveniently located right next door. I am a Starwoods Preferred member and usually choose from that line of properties when I travel so my l expectations are always quite high. The first thing I noticed was the very friendly and genuine welcome from the manager when my partner and I arrived late (and a little grumpy) in the evening. Check-in was smooth and we were assigned a room at the end of the hallway which is always nice for a quiet stay. The room was clean, smelled good and had all the ammenities, even free WiFi. It was obvious that there had been a renovation.
Early the next morning, the same manager was still on-duty, hovering over his morning associates and was still smiling and friendly--as were they. I was pleasantly surprised to find that a hotel shuttle would take me to my conference and a very nice young man did just that.
This hotel is not in a particularly great area but for a good deal near downtown Long Beach in an inexpensive, pleasant and clean environment, I would highly recommend it.
