“Fantastic base for sightseeing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My partner and i spent 3 nights here in March 2012. We thorughly enjoyed our stay! The staff were polite and very helpful and the rooms were lovely and clean. The grounds are very well looked after, although we never used the pool it looked very nice. Tula's restaraunt which is situated next door to the hotel is great for drinks or a bite to eat when you get back from exploring because there isn't a lot close by the hotel. The free shuttle to universal studios or the metro station is a great bonus, the bus is available to take guests to and from universal every half an hour until 6 or 7 oclock and then every hour after that which is very handy. As well as using the bus to take us to universal we also got dropped of at the metro one day and went into hollywood as it is only one stop on the metro to Hollywood blvd. Overall we had a great stay and would definitley recommend this hotel to friends as it was fantastic value for money.

Stay here often for business. It's nice to be greeted by name & with a smile @ check in. Amazing staff. Karla & Angel cannot be more helpful!!! Rooms are always clean & comfortable. Convenient to Hollywood & close to food & stores. If you are looking for a great affordable place, I don't think you will be disappointed.. Highly recommend!!

The grounds of the place is just wonderful! Can't say a bad thing about it. The wait staff and cleaners where wonderful.
The room was ok, how ever there was rust around the plug hole. A hole in the bathroom wall that looked like it was was just patched up, tiles crack in the bathroom and no main lights in the bedroom just lamps though out the room. There is a $250 fine if you smoke on the balcony even if you clean up the ash and remove your butts. The people in the desk where ok but some of the night staff are a bit rude.
The resterant and bar staff where amazing! They went over and above there line of work for me and my partner.
Free shuttle bus to the metro station and to uni studios that leaves every hour. Free wi fi on grounds.
Don't book this place thinking that it is in walking distance to main places. Eg the walk of fame. How ever if you take the free shuttle to the metro and go one stop it's all there. There are a few shops near by but it's only a local supermarket and a Starbucks. Also got charged using a long distance phone card that didn't even connect.

My family stayed here for 2 nights I wished it was for longer. Beautiful grounds, lovely and clean rooms, very helpful staff. The food in the restaurant was delicious. If you are looking for a great place to stay, then this is it! Definitely would stay here again and recommend it to other people.

Not a typical Holiday Inn, the Beverly Garland offers great value for money. I paid for a pool view and had a lovely view.

Good points:
Clean
Nice rooms
Attractive pool and jacuzzi area
Decent bar and restaurant (bar food excellent)
Close to Universal with free shuttle

I really can't think of any bad points.

Couple of tips - taxis in LA are super expensive, consider hiring a car. From the airport, catch a shuttle (can be caught outside terminals, we used Super Shuttle) as the airport is a reasonable distance (considering taxi cost) and the traffic is dreadful.

Much high praises for a staff that delivers a great promise of great hospitality service. Some Aussies are a little paranoid and are unequipped with the knowledge of LA. Rest assured I have known LA for over thirty over years and Beverly Garland is very safe, secure, and very relaxing to stay. I have had many great experiences at the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn. However, I wanted to express this to Management in person as I enjoyed their property so much that I walked in to provide a compliment and the Manager behind his desk in the office seem unenthusiastic with my compliments. Therefore, I took it here. The pool is clean and welcoming, the Bar Lounge has beautiful decor. The staff exceptionally great. The rooms are clean. Even though this holiday Inn has yet to refresh their rooms I have come to love the style very much and definitely feels homey. I ate at Tula's a few months ago, and I found the chef's food was abysmal and overpriced. I gave his menu many chances and decided not to waste my money and never ate there again and unfortunately when I stay there I want to stay and eat on property and earn PC Points rather than go somewhere else.

We stayed here for one night so we wouldnt have to drive home 2 hours away. We went to Universal Studios Halloween Horror nights. The hotel is nice. The staff was really friendly. Upon check in we received 2 free drink coupons for their restaurant on the hotel grounds,which we took advantage right away. I would stay here again.
