Definitely Worth It!
My boyfriend and I just finished up our stay in California, and were very happy with our experience with the Beverly Terrace. The decor in the rooms was nice, the A/C was strong, and the bathroom was bright and clean. The breakfast out by the pool was fantastic in the California sun, and maybe my most favorite part of the hotel.
There WAS a bizarre foreign woman at the desk who insisted that we leave our key when we left the hotel, which I thought was weird. There was no alarm clock in the room and the parking is sparse at night, but the man at the desk valeted it for us. It was convenient and really nice. I would absolutely stay here again!.
Wouldn't stay here again
I'm writing from the BT. Just for those who didn't know the difference between Little Santa Monica Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd, take Wilshire and turn Left at Doheny. BT is at Santa Monica Blvd and Doheny. Somehow I was on Santa Monica Blvd and then found myself on Burton. Good Luck!
Room is small but good enough for a business traveller. Carpet is stained (in a few areas). You might want to bring your own towel. i have a room right in front of the pool(room 103). i literally can open my door and take 3 steps and jump in! Front Desk Lady a bit unfriendly. Parking...sucks! their "lot" is very tight. The bed...will do. It's supposed to be a non-smoking 'hotel', but my room stinks of cigarette smoke. One positive note, they have free wireless internet.
I would recommend staying at hotel Elan near the Beverly Center. Same idea of BT but better....they have valet parking and better bathroom amenities.
Can't wait to check-out tomorrow morning.
A glorified motel
A glorified motel, which, for above $100 a night, is quite a scam. Rooms are tiny and more importantly dirty. We got towed while parked in the hotel "parking" which encroaches on the sidewalk!
I loved my room (clean with fun/sexy decor) ... The Staff was charming and helpful ... breakfast by the pool was a nice surprise ... great location ... resonable price. I don't understand the couple negative reviews .. probably written by uncouth freaks. I would stay there again.
Great Price/Nice Place
The Beverly Terrace was EXCELLANT... great price, great value... the room was small, a little old, but EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN. The bathroom had all new fixtures... Overall I felt like I had stepped back into a little more glamourous time... very quaint, a lot of nice touches in the lobby/public areas, nice ppol area.
The BTH was home for a week - and better than my home!
I stayed here a night in August, 1999, and enjoyed it enough to book a week (the discount for a week helped me decide that!) It's not first-class, but $100 a night ($575/week) (*1999 prices, remember) doesn't pay for first-class anywhere! While the name is somewhat leading (Beverly Terrace - it's literally on the outer edge of Beverly Hills), it's a nice little place, maybe 2 dozen rooms (but only parking for about 10 cars). Unheated pool in the centre of the odd-shaped building (the corner it's on is about 55degrees, not a regular square 90degrees), there's a restaurant connected with it (but I never got to eat there). A supermarket across the street is convenient, and as it's on the border of B.Hills and West Hollywood, it's walking distance from the wealth of Rodeo Drive to the west, and the style & oddities of Sunset Boulevard to the east. There's a sizable shopping mall & regular shopping area (not Gucci or Vuitton or Piercings&Pumps) south of the place, and it's easy to drive both out to the beach, or into the City, from here. Rooms are small, fixtures are a bit old, and if you're really coming here to spend time in your room, you can certainly do better. But where else can you stay "IN" Beverly Hills for this price?
This hotel is over-rated. We stayed here in July 2003. My advice, stay someplace else. Our room was dirty, the door had a 2" open gap at the bottom, and one flimsy lock in the doorknob. The A/C window units were old and LOUD. The rooms were terribly over-priced. We left and got a much nicer suite at another hotel in the same general area for the same rate.
Can't figure out the above reviews
We had exact opposite results as the above reviewers. The room was clean and the staff were exceptionally helpful. The desk clerk actually carried our cases up the stairs when he saw me waiting. He left before a tip could even be offered. The other desk clerk gave us excellent information on how to get to a nearby city by a lovely route. Grant it the rooms are small, but that is the norm of the area. We spent time drinking wine on the roof before retiring. I recommend it highly.
I spent an entire week here last year- and never again! The beds are hard, there were hairs that weren't mine throughout the room and the comforter smelled like body odor!
Severly rude/odd desk woman
I wanted to rent a room for a Saturday. The woman showed me a small room adjacent to the lobby. When I asked if there was any onther rooms available she explain yes, there was, but that one day's rental was not enough to warrant a better room. I laughed at her honesty and she raised her voice and asked me in an angered tone what was so funny. I tried to explain and she interupted and told me to stop
laughing. She was odd and rude.

... stars.. but it still counted to us! We then endluged ourselves in a desert treat of 'smors' which is an excellent american invention of toasted marshmellows (we got to toast them over our own open fire!) and chocolate sandwiched between some biscuits. Heavenly. After lots of tasty cocktails and some free shots (oh yea) we stumbled back towards home.
We are still getting used to everything being backwards. Like really ...
... 2 for one drinks, we watched the Miami heat in the basketball, which they lost and ended up getting pretty drunk from triple vodka and sprites that were really strong. After spending a few hours at the bar it was early evening. We headed up to a Thai restaurant and had some really great Thai food, it was delicious and it was byo drinks so I ran over to 7/11 and got beers. After dinner we went to our room with a few beers and drank up there watching ...
Yesterday, Saturday, involved:
Shopping for books at Barnes and Noble at The Grove in Beverly Hills. A fine bookshop where booklovers could lose hours browsing. I bought:
- Salvage The Bones by Jesmyn Ward (National Book Award Winner);
- The Odyssey by Homer;
- At Home by Bill Bryson; and
- Down and Up – poems by Clarence Major.
... especially if I open up.
How thrilled I was when someone gave me a compliment on my cute sandals. With the orthopedic shoes I have had to wear for too many years now, that just made my heart sing.
How I have to learn one of these days to start a trip light rather than starting heavy and shipping boxes at several towns along the way.
I have so many supportive people in my life, I just want to and will continue leaning in.
