Quirky hotel experience.

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: The quirkiness, the sun decks, the history of the vessel.
Cons: You need to upgrade the bathrooms, fittings inside the cabins. The cafe menu & value for money.
Location: Good shopping to be had on Second Street, Long Beach - & an amazing Italian resturant called La Strada - incredible food, great value & fab service.
Whilst this is a fascinating piece of history that you can stay in, it is let down by the fact that the rooms are literally as they were in the 1920's including the bathrooms & antiquated plumbing systems etc. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean & fresh towels etc were delivered daily, but the carpets were truly thread bare and the general quality of fittings etc now require some TLC. Modern travellers are now too savvy to really accept shoddy interiors because of it's placing in history. The hotel staff were extremly curteos & friendly & knowledgable about the immediate area. The cafe was disappointing, the food was bland & with limited choice & not good value. The 'Starbucks' coffee area that is on board requires expansion, to enable it to stock more Satrbuck products. This cruise ship has all the potential to be an amazing experience - I would recommend taking a tour around it, but not to stay over on.

It was really cool and something different to experience. I really enjoyed walking around the deck at night.

Pet friendly resort with so much history!

Posted Aug 13, 2014
We picked this because it's a pet friendly hotel. There's a $75 NON refundable pet deposit. We got the ocean view room and the bed was very comfortable. You just can't dine anywhere on the ship with your pet unless it's a service dog. The Belmont Shore is near by and has all kinds of restaurants & shops on the 2nd Street, that's where we ate breakfast, lunch & dinner. Make sure to check out Rosie's Dog Beach. It's big & very clean. Bring quarters for parking. We enjoyed the beach & watching all the dogs. They all looked the happiest. Would go back again & again!

Disappointed

Posted Aug 10, 2014
Slow check in with a few problems. Air conditioning not working. Sheets and mattress stained. Resort charges that you find out about when you check in. Knew ship would be more basic accommodation but not prepared for the state of our rooms. Did not stay. Did receive a refund.

Queen Mary - Long Beach Hotel

Posted Aug 9, 2014
Pros: Being able to walk around the ship
Cons: The beds and your plumbing.
Location: Shoreline Village, Belmont Shore-2nd Street
It was ok. I knew I would be on an old ship from the early 1900's but was surprised that I had 2 twin beds that were as hard as a rock to sleep in. Also, the rooms walls are like paper so I could hear EVERYTHING that was happening in the room next to us. Thank god it wasn't a "honeymoon" couple, if you know what I mean. They need to update their television cable since it was grainy and not up to date for cable and clarity of the screen. However, it was awesome to be able to wander around the ship and get a great view of Shoreline Village. We had a "haunted" experience which was kinda cool in our stateroom while we were waking up in the morning. All in all, I would probably just hang out for the day on the ship and stay somewhere else. Sorry to say.

Didn't like the fact that we had to pay for daily parking.

Stay over

This was my third time staying on the Queen Mary. Always a fun relaxing experience for a quick over night get away.
