Hotel search

Long Beach, a city by the sea, has accommodation to suit everyone. From budget-friendly motels to 4-star hotels that are practically destinations in themselves, it's all here. If you're a beachgoer, head to the shore. Into indie shops and restaurants? Check out the East Village. If vintage is your thing, try 4th Street.

Downtown - City centre

 

Featuring a promenade, waterfront entertainment, trendy shops, and tempting restaurants, downtown is a major draw for Long Beach visitors. Free transport is available around downtown on the Long Beach Transit Passport Bus. You'll enjoy easy access to top attractions like the Queen Mary, the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment centre, and the Aquarium of the Pacific.

 

Downtown Long Beach offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly, family-friendly, extended-stay, and large global-branded hotels. The central location means you can walk to many businesses and attractions and enjoy them at your own pace.

4th Street

 

Nicknamed "Retro Row," the area between Cherry and Junipero is a vibrant hipster community with a laid-back, non-touristy vibe. Browse antiques and collectible shops, try on some cool 1980s vintage fashions, and take an espresso break at one of the independent coffee shops. After sunset, how about a show at the 1920s Art Theatre?

 

With its thrift shops, quirky gift shops, and unpretentious night spots, the 4th Street neighbourhood draws budget-minded travellers. And wallet-friendly motels are within a 5- to 10-minute drive. You can stay in the northern part of the area, near the Pacific Coast Highway, or opt for something a little closer to downtown and the waterfront.
