Sometimes when you see what looks like a good deal you take it, knowing that it isn't as good as you think. It wasn't what I thought, it was way better. Let me hit you with some highlights. We reserved a king room. We got a king alright, but it included a huge jacuzzi tub and a patio with everything that was promised.
One thing promised was the breakfast. The fruit was fresh cut and varied along with the full array of breakfast breads, eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, oh and for the waffles with fresh strawberry compote and whipped cream or real butter and syrup. I enjoyed these leisurly at a bayside table with a waiter who refilled my excellent coffee.
Shuttle to the cruise terminal, not really, a private cab to the terminal. Parking during the cruise, these usually consist of some way off dirt lot or an assigned undesirable spot. They recommend at the Best Western Golden Sails that I park in the front by the doors, security goes there most, they say. Clean functioning rooms and decent furniture counts to me, obviously them too. Thank you.
I want to tell you that I was starting to think that reviews were a waste of my time and I was going to quit doing them. I did have a little problem with the plumbing in the room and took it right to the front desk. They directed me to Alicia who fixed it and my attitude completely and immediately. She was impressive but the whole stay was wonderful and is on the must repeat list. Booked it again twice in Feb. I will always book as soon as possible in advance because I have stayed at other places in Long Beach and found the best in this range to be mediumish.
I am lucky. less
