“Incredible Find in the Heart of West Hollywood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is truly a remarkable place in a very unique and safe area of the city. It is within walking distance to lots of great restaurants and shops, and a short hop to everything that is LA. We liked it because it is private, spacious and has all the amenities of home. There is also a rooftop deck area with a great view of the Hollywood Hills and that iconic Hollywood sign. Our hosts were extremely gracious and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Definitely a gem.

I can't imagine a better place to stay in LA. The location was amazing - great access to many popular destinations. Restaurants and shopping nearby were outstanding. The accommodations were more spacious than you can imagine, comfortable and welcoming. John and Lucy are very kind people who are more than happy to offer help with anything and were fun to speak with, as they have unique life experiences. Wonderful place for either a couple or family stay.

Beautiful hosts, lovely accommodation. Comfy bed and luxury bedding. Bathroom was spotless. Extra extra and towels were in our bedroom. Self catering was great. Would highly recommend - wish we had more time there to enjoy the home away from home :-)

John and Lucy make the Laurel Inn a destination accommodation. They were warm, welcoming and extremely flexible for our unusual set of circumstances, and delightful hosts. Although this was more of a self-catering accommodation than a true B&B, that worked out very well for us. John's pre-trip communication was thorough and helpful, and they were extremely helpful throughout our whole stay. The king-bed mattress was worth the entire trip-- absolute heaven. You cannot go without getting the stories behind the movie and military memorabilia! Laurel Inn is perfectly situated for ventures into WeHo, the Sunset Strip, Melrose, Beverly and Fairfax areas. You really can't ask for more, and value can't be beaten in L.A. Don't think about staying anywhere else. It should be noted, however, that we had hired a car; it might not have been quite so convenient if we were relying on public transport-- but that's true about everything in L.A. (Only little thing to remember is that the office is on the ground level of this three-level conversion, and it can be a little unnerving to hear someone come in late in the evening if you're not expecting it!)

We stayed here in September as part of our Honeymoon roadtrip. John and Lucy were incredibly hospitable and really looked after us. They helped us with planning taxi's and even with hotels for the rest of our trip. The view from the roof terrace is amazing too!

Great view from the roof.
Excellent location for Hollywood excursions.
Super for families since you have so much space.

My husband and I arrived at Laurel Inn to be warmly greeted by John and his cats Princess and Foxy (I am not a cat person but these two are soooo cute!). John was so friendly...he asked us about our travels and what our plans were whilst in LA. We told him that that evening we were planning to visit Santa Monica. He suggested a restaurant (which was fantastic) and even booked a table for us and printed out the confirmation! He then showed us to our apartment (well it was more like a house). It has a dining room/kitchen/lounge which has all the amenities you need, including a bar that you helped yourself to and settled up at the end. :) There were a wide range of dvd's and books too. Then upstairs was a lovely spacious, clean bedroom with a large tv and comfortable bed. The shower was fab...after a long day...it really cleared your cobwebs away! And then of course was the views from the upstairs roof patio with 360 degree view of the hollywood sign, Century City and Beverly Hills. The apartment is around the corner from melrose avenue...shopping heaven. We wanted to do a bus tour of LA but didn't really know which to do. John suggested one for us and even offered to take us into downtown hollywood which was so incredibly kind. Luckily though, the bus tour he advised picked you up on melrose avenue and what a tour it was...we saw everything we wanted in LA in one day for a really good price (City sightseeing). And at the end of the day it dropped us back at melrose avenue so no need for a hike home! We got to meet Lucy as we were checking out who was equally as charming as John but we never got to say goodbye to John so to you both, thank you so much for a wonderful stay and if we are lucky enough to ever return to LA, we know where we will be staying. :)
