12+ Convenient Los Angeles & Long Beach Hotels with Cruise Parking

If you are looking for a hotel near the Los Angeles and Long Beach cruise ports, one of the perks you should look for is cruise parking included with your stay. It’s one of the little-known secrets about saving money on a cruise… and it can save you hundreds of dollars.

The market for hotels is competitive, especially in a tourist destination like Los Angeles. That means hotels will often offer extra benefits in order to attract more guests. 

View of the Long Beach cruise port

Parking at the port can be a pretty hefty price on top of your cruise fare. Fares run $20 a day at the Port of Los Angeles and $23 at the Port of Long Beach. That means for a week of parking, you can expect to pay at least $140.

But if you are staying in the area, then you can find a hotel that offers a cruise parking package. These packages include parking in your hotel fare, typically for an amount that’s a little more than the regular room rate, but less than parking at the cruise port. In addition, they will often include transportation back and forth from your ship.

To be sure, if you don’t plan on staying at a hotel the night before, then doing it just for the parking isn’t worth the added expense. But if you are going to stay somewhere, we suggesting finding a place with cruise parking to save a few extra bucks.

Below we list more than a dozen options. Click each hotel name below to read recent reviews from real travelers. For parking packages you may have to book through the hotel website or call the hotel directly.

Los Angeles Hotels with Cruise Parking Packages

These hotels are close to the Port of Los Angeles (World Cruise Center) in San Pedro. If you are sailing from the Port of Long Beach, see the list of hotels later in this article located closer to that port.

Best Western Los Angeles Worldport Hotel
This hotel is less than 10 minutes away from your cruise ship. They offer free cruise parking with a night’s stay (up to seven nights of parking). If you need to park longer than a week, it’s just a nominal fee per day. There is no shuttle offered, but an Uber or Lyft would be cheap and easy given the short distance. With free parking, you will save more than $100 versus leaving your car at the port.

DoubleTree by Hilton San Pedro — Port of LA
DoubleTree is always known for higher-end accommodations. This hotel meets that bar. Highly rated, the hotel sits right on a marina at the Port of Los Angeles, so you can watch the ships go in an out. The “Park and Go” package includes parking for the duration of cruise and shuttle service to the Port of Los Angeles. All told, the rate was only about $25 higher than the base rate, saving you a bundle versus parking at the port.

  • Price: $$-$$$
  • Distance to LA Port: 3 miles
  • Review Rating: 4.0 out of 5

Crowne Plaza LA Harbor Hotel
The Crowne Plaza offers its guests a “Cruise Package” that’s perfect for travelers needing a place to park for their cruise. The package runs about $80 more than the cheapest room rate in our search, but includes parking for up to 8 nights, a round trip shuttle to the World Cruise Center, and breakfast for two people. 

  • Price: $$
  • Distance to Port: 1 mile
  • Review Rating: 4.0 out of 5

Sunrise Hotel
When it comes to location, it’s hard to beat the Sunrise Hotel. It’s right at the harbor, so you can watch your ship sail in the morning of your cruise. The hotel offers a “Park & Cruise” deal with parking, shuttle service to and from the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and continental breakfast. You will need to call 310-548-1080 to make a reservation. Our price check showed it as $30 over the base rate, saving you a considerable amount versus parking at the port.

Best Western Plus San Pedro
Just about five minutes from the port, the Best Western is among the closest hotels to the cruise ships. It also has one of the best parking deals. Here you can park for just $10 per day — half off parking at the cruise port. There is also a shuttle to the Los Angeles cruise terminal (but not Long Beach). We’d suggest calling ahead of your stay and asking about reserving a parking space to make sure there is room.

  • Distance to Port: 1.5 miles

Vagabond Inn
This hotel sits just minutes from the cruise port and offers much cheaper parking than what it costs at the port. In fact, the “Cruise Rate” offered is actually cheaper than the base rate. Here, you can book the special discounted cruise rate, and then it’s $10 per night to park your car. That’s half the rate of parking at the port. As well, they offer a free shuttle to the World Cruise Center (though you will need to get a ride back to the hotel after the cruise). If sailing from Long Beach, you’ll need to find your own transportation with Uber/Lyft.

Long Beach Hotels with Cruise Parking Packages

Sailing on a Carnival cruise? You’ll sail from the Port of Long Beach. The hotels below are near the port and many offer shuttle service. You can also use these to park and head to the Port of LA, which is about another 10 minutes away from Long Beach.

Hilton Long Beach
With close proximity to the cruise port and a large parking lot adjacent, the Hilton Long Beach is a perfect spot for a park and cruise deal. In fact, they offer a “Park and Go” that includes parking for up to seven nights, along with a round trip ride to the Long Beach cruise port. Best of all, our price checks showed a parking package rate of about $30 over the base rate. So for about the cost of one day’s parking at the port, you can get a week of parking here.

Hotel Maya
Perhaps the most “high-end” hotel on our list, Hotel Maya is right on the bay and just about half a mile from the Port of Long Beach Cruise Terminal. The well-reviewed spot has a “Park and Go” deal that includes parking for up to a week. Best of all, it’s only about $55 more than the base rate. That’s a much better deal than the $23 per night the Port of Long Beach charges for parking. As well, Hotel Maya offers a free ride to the Long Beach port.

Courtyard Long Beach Downtown
The Courtyard in Long Beach is just a few minutes from the port and highly reviewed, which makes it an excellent option. They offer a “Park’n’Sail” package with a night’s stay and included parking for up to a week. You will need a quick Uber or Lyft over to the ship, but that’s a small price to pay for the savings versus parking at the port.

  • Distance to Port: 3 miles

Best Western Plus at the Convention Center
Right near the waterfront in Long Beach, you’re only about 10 minutes from the Port of Long Beach with this hotel. When we called, they specified they don’t have an official parking package, but you can leave your car in the garage and pay the $19 per day parking rate. That’s $4 per day cheaper than the parking at the cruise port (but doesn’t include a shuttle).

  • Price: $$-$$$
  • Distance to Port: 2.5 miles
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Residence Inn Long Beach Downtown
Sitting just a mile from the cruise terminal, it’s hard to get much closer than this spot. It’s also right on the water, looking out toward Long Beach. Stay here and you can take advantage of the “Park and Sail” package. This includes your first night’s parking included and then $15 per night after that. This provides a sharp discount versus parking at the port that’s just a mile away.

  • Price: $$-$$$
  • Distance to Port: 1 mile
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Residence Inn Long Beach (Airport)
Need somewhere that’s more affordable to stay but still offers parking? Long Beach Airport is about 20 minutes away from the cruise port, but offers a number of hotels with parking at reasonable rates. This Residence Inn offers a “Park Here” deal that includes seven nights of parking. While it’s meant for those headed to the airport, there’s no reason you can’t use it for the cruise port. You will need to arrange an Uber or Lyft to the cruise ship.

  • Price: $$
  • Distance to Port: 8.5 miles
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Holiday Inn: Long Beach Airport
Another option near the airport, this hotel gets good reviews and won’t break the bank. They offer a “Park and Cruise” package that has some nice perks. First, you can park for seven days with the deal. But they also have shuttle service to and from the cruise port. That’s a nice perk as the ride is about 20 minutes away.

  • Price: $$
  • Distance to Port: 8.5 miles
  • Review Rating: 4 out of 5

Staybridge Suites: Long Beach Airport
Literally right next to the Holiday Inn mentioned above, this is an ideal spot if you want a room with a little more space, since the hotel offers suites. Stay here and you can book the same package offered by the Holiday Inn. You get parking for a week plus your ride to and from the port taken care of already. And you also get breakfast included. No wonder this hotel gets such strong ratings.
