“Absolutely spectacular!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I don't even know where to begin. I stayed at The Beverley Garden Inn from the 1st to the 5th of December and was blown away at how nice and caring the staff were towards me since I was a single 18 year old traveller coming from Australia. They were very helpful with anything I needed, especially one of the ladies that was in the boutique who helped me organise tours during my stay. I stayed in a king bedroom which was very nicely furnished and everything was clean (I'm an absolute neat freak so this made me happy)! The restaurant next to the hotel was also very good, meals were very nice and filling for the price that I paid. Only downfall for this hotel would be the size of the bathroom..it was slightly small but could still be doable. Great location, great people and also excellent security at night time!!

The hotel staff were amazing and the room was very clean and bathroom was fantasic. There is a shuttle from the hotel to Universal Studios and they have a very good range of room service food. There is free wifi so not much else to say here

Room Tip: want good service tip well

You may find other hotels with great rooms like the Beverley Garland Holiday Inn and you might find hotels with great restaurants and pool areas also like the Beverley Garland
BUT..you would be hard pressed to find a hotel with atmosphere and service such as we experienced with our family holiday this November.
The whole establishment from the doormen, front counter and staff were excellent and the serenity and layout of the hotel just added that extra bit when you needed it. The food and room sevice was excellent.
Try it, I'm sure that like us you would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Travelling with 4 kids we found that the family suite was great after a day running around to have...

It is so nice to stay at a hotel WHERE THEY CARE. Every employee we dealt with was pleasant and helpful. From Mehrsa, at the restaurant who truly took care of us with skill and warmth. To Branco, who made sure my kid had pool toys when they were splashing around. We are doing construction on our house and everything has been very disruptive. The staff at the Beverly Garland made an oasis of calm for us. They worked to help us get in and out when we needed. Really loved it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in this tidy hotel - it is a stones throw from Universal Studios Hollywood and City Walks with the free shuttle to and from these busy spots being very handy! Friendly, helpful staff were able to recommend other things to do / places to go in the local area and helped organise an airport transfer without fuss. We made use of the onsite bar/restaurant too which was fine. Slept very well although some may find the noise from the nearby freeway a bit much - if you don't mind that though this is a good find.

I stayed here in October 2011 with my partner and 2 kids. We stayed in the Queen Kid Suite, which had a small cordoned off area with bunks for the kids, and a Queen bed. It was small and tired, the air-conditioner was so loud we couldn't sleep with it on (and there was a heatwave) and the walls were VERY thin, which could have been very embarrassing if the neighbours had woken up my children, as they did me! The room service meal we had was atrocious and the bathroom was tiny and tired. Having said that, for the price and the location it was good value. It had a fridge and for 2 nights (we were pretty much only there to sleep anyway) it was fine. The pool area was lovely, Tula's restaurant was great and the staff in the hotel were helpful and friendly.

Very close to Universal Studios Hollywood! I found the free hotel shuttle to the park very convenient. The hotel lounge has a terrific happy hour (even weekends!) with 50% off the bar menu for food! Excellent presentation of the food and it was very tasty. Overall, the hotel has beautiful landscaped grounds and most importantly well maintained! Very attentive staff regarding cleanliness. My room was a little small and noisy due to the nearby freeway, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons at this hotel.
