We arrived the evening of the 22nd, April 2008 to the small downtown Long Beach Rodeway Inn to find a well maintained establishment. I had actually been recommended this hotel by a colleague who had stayed there the month previous. He and I have traveled on business together and he knows my requiremements for cleanliness and convenience. Boy, was he right! The office has a bit of the downtown feel but is staffed with smiling well groomed employees. a fantastic first impression! The desk agent worked diligently to find a room that met the needs of some friends I had brought along unannounced. I knew it was gamble not making their reservations ahead of time but not only did they get the room they wanted it was conveniently next door to mine. Next, the courtyard is the parking lot, no pool, but we didn't care as we wanted to take in the sights. Having this feature increased the safety of one's auto. I was able to park my care outside of my room door for a calming sense and ease of access. Entering the rooms we found clean, modern, maintained accomadations. I was so pleased! Then after opening my luggage I remembered the price. "I am going to stay here everytime I come to Long Beach." I told myself. For this was a secret jewel. For those traveling on business and those out and about I fully recommend the Rodeway on Atlantic. After a hard day of shopping, meetings or playing tourist this is great place to come home and hang your hat. It is within walking distance of every heart's desire. Restaurants galore! There is even a VON'S grocery store up the block!
