Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Carlyle Inn Los Angeles
New Year's Eve 2004 ... we were very pleased with the condition of the room, the size of the bathroom, the appointments like the bathrobes, the aesthetic style of the room and the hotel at large; the breakfast (which was included in the room rate) was very nice and the service with it; the wine/cheese option at 4 pm, and apples at the front desk! Would stay there again.
Lovely & Quaint
We had a wonderful experience at the Carlyle Inn. The staff was quite helpful and pleasant. The rooms were clean with updated bathrooms. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet (our son LOVED the waffle maker!) and ate on the lovely outdoor patio each morning.
This place was just awful. The room smelled horrible, and the bathroom was disgusting. I was afraid to walk around the bathroom without shoes and the bathtub was filthy! The walls are paper thin as well as the doors. We woke up every morning at 7 a.m. to inconsiderate neighbors slamming doors and talking extremely loudly! We complained twice, but that did not help. The second time I called the front desk and ask that they handle the situation before I handle it. They never even sent anyone up. After management neglected to take care of this I finally resorted to slamming my own door. A bit childish, I know, but when you are on vacation, you don't expect to get up so early to shouting and banging!!
Great value, great experience
On the night before I left to stay at this hotel, I got worried because of some of the comments posted here. I quickly scrambled to look for back-up hotels in case we got to the Carlyle and were afraid and very disappointed. Reality could not have been further from the truth. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here. A truly great value for the Beverly Hills area. Parking was so so so convenient and only $10 a day. After you check in (and both day and night shift personnel were extremely pleasant and helpful), you get in the elevator and go up and find yourself surprisingly outside. The rooms are along a curved wall with outside walkway, there is a lovely courtyard on the ground floor (where you have breakfast) and a mid-level sundeck with very comfy lounge chairs. Nice healthy plants everywhere. The room was decent size. The air conditioner worked well. Nice big bathroom. And the most comfortable soft bed and pillows that I've ever had in a hotel. There is no view to speak of, but who cares. We heard absolutely no outside noise or traffic. The breakfast buffet is light and good, and the staff in that little dining room is very nice. While the city block doesn't have much on it, the Kaballah Center (that many celebrities go to) is on the corner, and you are only blocks away from Rodeo Drive and other great streets. This was a real bargain. I will definitely go back. I think other posters were overly negative on this one. I've stayed at some of the world's best places, and this hotel was fine. It's three star, and that's what you get. A good, clean, friendly hotel with a very nice staff and easy parking.
Not a 2star hotel
Thanks to the mostly positive reviews posted here, I decided to stay at this roach motel. My stay was for 2 nights and thankfully not a day longer. First off, this is not a 3 star hotel, its a 2 star INN. This hotel was really creepy. If you've seen the pictures online of the hotel, it makes it look really nice, but take my word for it...its gross. When we checked in, we got a room on the 2nd floor. We had to walk through this dark alley-looking way. My kids were so scared. We could barely see what was in front of us. We realized it was a restaurant smack in the middle of the walkway.
The price was not worth the $119/night. I'd rather have spent that money anywhere else. You're better off staying at a brand name hotel. My son broke out in hives all over his face from something on the sheets here. I was afraid to use the blankets and the bathroom, which had hair on the floor when we got there...and the stench....oh my, it was musky and disgusting. I will never ever ever ever stay at this roach motel. The room was so small that we had no room to open our suitcases. The window curtains had stains on them. It was just so disgusting. This is not a nice place to spend your vacation. We were supposed to spend the end of our vacation there too, but we canceled and spent an extra $100 a night NOT to be here.
-Good deal. Stayed three nights for $60/night (Priceline). Atypical (for LA) euro-style hotel in a great neighborhood. Attentive staff a plus. Be sure to try the Tuk Tuk Thai restaurant just two blocks away. Lovely residential area perfect for a stroll one block to the west.
Not sure about this one
We stayed at the Carlyle for two nights, June 6,7. The property is pretty nice, I am not sure about the neighborhood. The room was small, but nice. The breakfast was good. The biggest problem we had, was that there were ants all over our bathroom floor! We requested that someone come up and take care of it, no one came, so I tried to kill all of them. Finally, a housekeeper that did not speak english came up, she did nothing, I asked that the floor get cleaned, "later", she said. I told the clerk each day, that I was not happy, nothing was done, I had already paid for my room through travelweb. That is the bad thing about paying ahead. Anyway, I don't think I would stay there again.
Wonderful service, great staff!!
This is a wonderful 'intimate' hotel (32 rooms). I had read about the possibilty of noise problems from the other rooms, so I asked for a room on the top floor. Neighbors? What neighbors! I must add we stayed here midweek. The area is not Beverly Hills chic, but we felt fine walking around looking for a place for dinner. Our room was wonderful, the service was A+...and as long as you have a car most attractions in the area are within a 10 minute drive. Oh yes, thanks for the wonderful fresh apples available at the check in counter! Shall definitely stay here again. P.S. There's a great Chinese restaurant just around the corner to the south!
Friendly service, good breakfast
Stayed here in February 2003. The breakfast was good too, with something different each day. There was also the standard bagels, juice, coffee, cereal, and fruit. The room was smaller than I had hoped but if you're just sleeping in them then it's no big deal. We managed to fit four people in a double. The bathroom was okay, there wasn't a bathroom fan so showers sometimes felt like saunas. Other than that, the service was friendly and helpful.
We had a great stay at this hotel! It's in a nice residental neighborhood just south of Beverly Hills, right across the street from the famous celebrity frequented Kabbalah Centre. It has a great central location so it's easy to get anywhere. The Beverly Center is only about 3 minutes away. Our room was very nicely decorated and had a nice, recently remodeled bathroom. The staff is very friendly and the free breakfast is a great way to start the day, with something different each morning. It's real food too, not just continental. There is a fee for parking but its very easy, just pull in and they do the rest. There's no extra charge for the valet and the $10 a night fee was much cheaper then some of the other hotels wanted. We'd definately stay here again!

This gave us 10 mins to walk back to the bus area for our return shuttle at 6 pm. This was a thoroughly enjoyable day and Greg's tooth is at least responding to the antibiotics and pain killers so he was able to enjoy the day including the rides. We walked 8 kms there in just over 7 ...
