The rooms were nice. The food in the restuarant was very good. The view of the marina was lovely. The staff was courtesy and helpful. The only downside is that the pool, although heated, was outside and it was not quite warm enough to utilize. The fitness facility was stocked with good equipment. I would recommend staying here.
If you have a boat, this is the perfect place to stay. People are nice. Service was great. Location is a bit out of the way to cruise around LA, but great if you are just staying around Long Beach.
As I sit in my run down room with no hot water for the second day in a row, I feel the need to warn any potential guests of this facility to not be swayed by the great views of the marina. That's really the only redeeming factor for this poor excuse for a Hilton property. The furniture in the rooms is shabby , dirty and in need of replacement. I do not have a desk chair, but a chair from the banquet facility. No hot water for two days and a staff that could give a flip. I stayed T this hotel last month and I had no airconditioning. I will not be coming back.
This hotel does not transport to Carnival Cruise lines terminal in Long Beach. I was misinformed when I called Doubletree San Pedro and asked about shuttle transportation. I was told that they provided it as a complementary service but failed to tell me that this did not include Carnival Cruise Lines (which I was sailing on!) I found the service efficient but not friendly. The dining room staff was very friendly and quick to resolve a problem I had with their white rice (which was terrible!). They resolved this matter quickly. The room was comfortable but the TV needed replacing as it had a terrible picture. It's a clean and safe location but not a 5 star hotel.
Hotel was nice with a good restaurant. Fun place to walk around with a park close by. Great shuttle to cruise line.
WE STAYED THERE THE EVENING BEFORE A CRUISE AND LOVED IT...IT WAS BEAUTIFUL...SERVICE WAS GREAT AND WE LEFT OUR CAR THERE UNTIL WE ARRIVED AND WERE PICKED UP BY THE HOTEL VAN. IT REALLY WAS A NICE START TO A GREAT VACATION.
In short, the hotel presents itself as an upper scale water front stay, but is in fact worn down and dirty. The rooms and buildings are showing their age, and have TERRIBLE up keep. Wost of all is the completely dishonest and apathetic staff. The front desk manager tried to at first give me a completely different room than what I had reserved and pre-paid for, then tried to give me a sub standard room. When told that I wanted the room I paid for, I was told that despite being 30 minutes past check in time, my room wasnt ready. I came back later in the evening and got a room of the type I had reserved. It was in poor repair, with exposed wires and loose electrical outlet covers, dirty bathroom, and stank of cigarette smoke despite being a non-smoking room. The next morning there was NO WATER. When I called to ask what was going on, I was essentially told 'tough luck'. I will spare you the saga of trying to deal with management and corporate. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!
Room not ready an arrival. Room not cleaned the next day until after several phone calls. Noisy party on balcony next door not quieted until after phone call. Abt 130 AM.
We spent 4 nights at the Doubletree before going on a Panama Cruise and we enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is located in a quiet area but close walking to restaurants, etc. The surroundings are lovely and also it's very convenient to the docks for people going on a cruise. Another bonus is that the hotel supplies transporation to the docks when you ready to board the ship. All in all staying at the Doubletree was a very pleasant experience and my husband and I would highly recommend it.
We took the Super Shuttle from LAX. First stop was another hotel. We were in awe of the people getting out at this stop because the hotel was so 'rich' looking. The first stop seemed so 'tight' because the hotel was embedded in the city. We didn't know what to expect at Doubletree. Next stop was the Doubletree San Pedro. Oh my gosh, we felt so lucky! Everything was perfect. The room was clean and well appointed. The balcony was roomy and refreshing. The weather was fabulous. The hotel shuttle took up to a restaurant nearby and picked us up. The morning of our cruise, we have a wonderful buffet breakfast. I would recommend this place just because of the beautiful views. Looking out at the marina was breathtaking plus we saw our cruise ship arrive the next morning! Just try to get a room with a balcony.
I actually stayed at the wrong place. Our cruise was leaving from Long beach instead of San Pedro, Ca. The hotel provided transportation to Long Beach. which is not their standard procedure. We enjoyed our stay at a very lovely place.
We had a very nice 1 night stay at the Double Tree in San Pedro, CA. We ate in the resturant and the food was quite tasty. It was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The front desk people were very helpful and got the room ready for us before the designated check in time, as we arrived early. I loved their cookies! 4 thumbs up out of 5!!!
So mom and I arrive from a 6 hour late train and find that the hotel we were meant to stay in is sold out and cant accomodate us, so we went 1 block down and stayed at the Vagabond. There is a slight smell of urine in the 2nd floor elevator area but other than that I found it to be a pretty decent simple clean hotel. Mind you not posh, just a simple hotel with firm beds. I have no significan issues with the venue and actually found the staff very accomodating.
My partner and I stayed here for two nights, in connection with our visit to Catalina Island. Front desk staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Plenty of parking. Satellite TV (DirecTV) was excellent. Many premium channels, good size flat screen TV. Free donuts in the morning were fresh and among the best I've tasted. I think they came from the Yum Yum Donuts down the street. Free local newspaper. Hotel is close to ferry (10 minute drive, 1/2 hour walk if you want) and the cool downtown area on 6th Street (boutique restaurants, shopping). Sushi 21 Japanese restaurant next door is excellent, good service and a great value. My only caveat is the street noise. Gaffey Street is a main route. Traffic noise does not disturb me, but those not used to it may find it distracting. But it's hard to escape traffic noise anywhere in LA. I would stay here again.
Just stayed overnight enroute to a cruise ship. The hotel is a budget hotel, clean, VERY comfortable king sized beds. Nice small pool area for a morning swim and reading the paper with coffee. Highly recommended if you are looking for a budget hotel in San Pedro cruise terminal area.
I would not recommend this hotel! The walls are paper thin, you could hear the water running, toilet flushing, and every foot step in the room above you.
I was very disappointed in the room I stayed in. The hotel only has four rooms set aside for pet owners and I got the last one. I thought was very lucky to get the room until I smelled the horrible scent of cigarette smoke and other foul odors. The smell was so bad; I could only stay in the room one night. In addition, there was no electrical power in the sleeping area so the lamp and clock did not work. The TV worked only because they ran a large extension cord from the bathroom to the TV.
It's not the best I've ever been in, it's not the worst I've ever been in. Beds were firm, decent pillows, sheets were clean. Carpet should've been replaced a good 5 years or so ago. Room had DirectTV & a decent WiFi connection. The road out front is CRAZY busy - I was there for 4 nights and heard & saw the aftermath of 3 car wrecks outside of the gas station across the street. Problems: - my bathroom had a leak from the bathtub above. Mentioned it to the desk and they didn't seem to care. - shower head - had a massage head on it. It must be getting old, as a part inside would get stuck and start this LOUD, annoying vibration. Onlyway to stop it was to shut off the water, then turn it back on. - one of the exterior security doors on the side would't open. I had to walk to the front with all of my luggage to get inside. All & all, it wasn't bad for the price. Next time however, I'm staying closer to the event I was in town for over in Long Beach.
Service was very good, very busy street, musty smell in room doughnuts for breakfast from a local doughnut shop? the dresser had a non working fridge and half of dresser was not useable
My husband and I needed an inexpensive hotel for one night and this fit the bill. It was quiet, close to night life, and it's pet-friendly!
I was in San Pedro because I was going on a cruise the next day, and needed somewhere to spend the night. I stayed at the best hotel I have stayed in for a long time. The bathroom was clean, the guest service was excellent (even though I arrived at 2am), and the room was clean and taken care of; not new, but taken care of. I will go back without any questins if I am in the area again.
Albeit a small hotel, it was very clean, neat, comfortable, the staff were friendly and accommodating and the manager was extremely pleasant, I would stay there again.'
My stay was AWESOME!! The room was clean and the grounds were clean. It was close to everything I needed. There was lots of parking and the neighbor was good too. The staff was friendly. The check in process was fast. The two things that I didn't like was there wasn't a refrigerator in the room and I heard the traffic from my room. If my room was located on the side facing the resident homes, I wouldn't have heard traffic. But other than that, my stay was great!! I would stay at this hotel again.
