Historical Traveler Reviews Beverly Laurel Motor Hotel Los Angeles
Great for families who'd like to spend money on food, not rooms
My family goes to LA often to visit my sister and her family and we love the Beverly Laurel., which is not too far from where she lives. It is amazingly located - you can get anywhere you want from this central point. And, it is a clean, nicely but simply decorated place, with a helpful friendly staff. It is a wonderful deal, one of LA's top secrets! We love to spend our money on LA area restauirants, so this hotel is a perfect find... it is safe, comfortable and pleasant to sleep in, and we have lots of money left over to eat at four star restaurants!
Great little hotel!
The best deal in LA. I discovered the Beverly Laurel in 1996 and have stayed there many times since. Never a smell like the yuppie larva talked about. Great price, great location, great service, and nice on-site resturant. I can not wait to return.
Great for pet owners and excellent value!
Anyone visiting Los Angeles or needing a temporary place to stay with a pet will be very happy with the Beverly Laurel Motor Hotel. My dog and I needed to relocate for a few days during renovations of our home, and were treated warmly and graciously as valued guests at the Beverly Laurel. Our room appeared to be recently redecorated, and was nicely appointed and spotlessly clean and tidy. The location is great for walking and exploring, with the Melrose shopping area, Farmer's Market and the Grove all within an easy walk. Though the motel was quite full, it was very pleasantly quiet even on weekend nights. I will recommend this place to everyone.
Good, Clean, Accommodation
Stayed at this hotel in October 2003 and found it friendly, clean and very central for all attractions. Would definitely recommend it and would certainly use it again.
Loved it,would definetely stay there again!
My friend and I stayed at the Beverley Laurel for over a week during our visit to the usa and we had a very pleasent stay,the staff couldn't do enough for us and the room was very clean with all mod cons,the americans must have a better sense of smell than me as I noticed no odors in the room.
Retro Hollywood glam - clean and friendly
I've stayed at the Beverly Laurel twice, for a week each time and love it.
Roberto the manager is friendly and helpful and will happily give great recommendations on where to shop and eat.
The rooms are clean and spacious with groovy deco finishes - the bedheads which soar towards the ceiling enclose beautiful black and white photographs. It's very retro-Hollywood glam.
The Beverley Laurel is really well located, particularly if you are travelling without a car - it's within walking distance (15-20mins) of The Beverly Centre, The Grove and CBS.
The fabulous Swingers Diner (as seen in Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion) is under the motel serving up great food in 50's style booths and banquettes.
Across the road is a second hand cowboy boot store (aaah, those shattered starlet dreams that see young hopefuls sell their boots!) called CowBoyz which is also well worth a look.
Love it, except for the parking
For the record, I've stayed at the Laurel twice and have never noticed any bad odor. My only complaint is the limited parking, which tends to fill up quickly during the wee hours (the time I usually returned to the motel) because of patrons hanging out at the diner downstairs. The staff don't tend to check parking passes on the dashboards, so several times I was forced to park on the street while non-guests took my spot and parked for free.That said, the place is clean, nicely renovated and very friendly.
Your stuff will not be returned
I stayed at the Beverly for one night and one night was enough! It had a terrible odor to it. I accidentally left a pair of glasses behind and called regarding them. I asked if there was a way to ship it to me or to prepay for them. I was told that I can get them next time I was in LA. And that was the end of that. There was nothing to work out. THE END!
We stayed at the Beverly Laurel. It had a great restaurant underneath. The rooms had a great look, but when we walked in the smell hit you like a brick wall. They must have known it too because the windows were left open when we got to the room. Nice Decor, but the smell overrode the whole thing. Not just a little smelly, but VERY smelly. At night it was pretty cold and we had to use the heater. Unfortunately throughout the night the heater would let out a very loud honk, sounded as if it were a horn telling us we were going to war. Just as we were settling in and forgetting about the smell, the loud noise would wake us up and bring us back to reality. NOthing against the customer service, they were all friendly and coureous. BUT THAT SMELL!!! AND THAT NOISE!!!!AHHHH
Affordable room with excellent service!
My stay at the Beverly Laurel Motor Hotel was a pleasurable experience and I would definitely consider it for any future LA lodging needs. Upon arriving to the hotel my wife and I found that the underground parking lot was a bit too small. (I drive a mid-sized Oldsmobile and I had a hell of time getting around the lot.) But I guess that's to be expected for LA parking. Parking was free though and it was a just a minor inconvenience. When we checked in, the front desk agent on duty was extremely polite and very helpful. When we entered our room, it was clean, spacious, and the decor was fun. The room included a microwave and fridge and I hear for a few extra bucks you can get a kitchenette. We tried to take a nap on a Saturday afternoon but it was a bit too noisy. The hotel was quiet at night though and we got a good night's sleep. There seemed to be a slight moldy odor in the room, but it wasn't that noticeable. They may want to consider an ozone machine (a popular device used by innkeepers that wipe out any and all kinds of odors) Everything about this place though was swank, totally 1950's. Staying here was what I always thought LA motor motels would be like, from the contemporary decor in the room to the soda machine that looked like it was from 1953. Plus, Swingers cafe attached to the building is a great place for all American diner food. Actually, even better than your average diner. With an extensive menu that included anything from bacon and eggs to hummus and pita, to ostrich burgers. I mean come on, ostrich burgers! At check-out the front desk staff again was very polite and very friendly. A very pleasant surprise considering that city's reputation for rude struggling actors working as waiters and bartenders. Room rate was $84.00 for Saturday and Sunday night.

It was wet and windy in Florida again so we didn't feel like we were missing much by staying. After collecting our final things from our cabin, and then going back to the room to double-check, we went downstairs to disembark.
Even though we were listed as disembarkation number one, we still needed to wait. Unbeknownst to us, you could simply walk off the ship even earlier, without needing to ...
... Karma for our decision to choose booze over beauty the night before. So instead, we had breakfast, packed the tent and then headed out on the free bus to Hermit's Rest and ran back from there. The views were still stunning, and as it was still pretty early, there weren't too many people around. Sadly, we realised - as suspected - that cycle touring doesn't share much of a fitness crossover with running, but our sore legs and panting lungs were compensated by what must be one of ...
... at the car we set Homer the SatNav to Sunset Blvd and hit the road. All the way down the Pacific Coast Highway 101. Lots of sea views then we headed inland at Ventura and through Camarillo before turning off the highway by the Hollywood Bowl onto Hollywood Blvd. This is a crazy busy street, classic America. Then we turned onto Sunset Blvd and started looking for our hotel, The Andaz. It wasn't too long and it emerged on the right. Valet Parking, so we left the guys the car ...
