  • We have stayed at this hotel 3 times now. The rooms are comfortable. The bathrooms are huge with a huge shower. There is a pool and excersize room on property and there is a great Sunday brunch.  more »
  • Stayed at the Bicycle while visiting family in Long Beach. This hotel is so immaculate that you feel you could eat off the floors. The casino is organized, clean and very open floor plan. NO...  more »
  • Great hotel that doesn’t allow bikes on the property, how ironic! Being an amateur cyclist, I booked this hotel from the name and nice pictures. Perfectly located about 18 miles from Long Beach that you can cycle straight to on a beautifully flat cycle path. Unfortunately the homeless rate is high and especially along that path/trail, so recommend group and not solo! Great bar/restaurant, but don’t play cards to gamble; so never made use of the casino! Group cycle tour? Excellent hotel to use, maybe they will change their concept to match their name😁🤫🤷🏽‍♂️🚴🏽‍♂️💨 P/S thanks to Mario at the receptionist desk for his assistance in making my stay comfortable and helping with directions along with his colleague
  • This is totally a great hotel to stay. Their hotel room was well cleaned and well set, bed was so comfy. The ambiance was cool. Staff were so much friendly and helpful.
