“Great Hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2009

Really good sized, well equipped rooms. Nice pool & jacuzzi - had a very good stay here.

Restaurant food wasn't great though.

The rooms hbere were of a nice size and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and I slept as well here as I did at home. I liked the idea that you could not get into the building with the rooms without a key card. The grounds were very neat and with all the trees was very relaxing. As for the staff I don't think that I saw anyone who was not trying to be very helpful. They acdt like they really enjoy what they are doing. The location was great as far as being near attractions especially in the Hollywood area. Very enjoyable stay and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I have recently made my second trip out to California and stayed yet again at the gorgeous Beverly Garland's Holiday Inn. After my first stay, I really didn't think that the staff could get any nicer, or the grounds could get any more beautiful, but they did! The upgrades that were made to the hotel in the year since my last visit are amazing! Every aspect of my 10 day stay in the Hollywood area was heightened by the excellent service in Tula's Cafe or The Bar, the front desk staff, and the wonderful driver of the the shuttle who made sure that we had a great time at the Universal Studios City Walk. I highly recommend it to any of my business associates heading to the LA/Hollywood area.

My daughter and I stayed for a week at this hotel and were really pleased with the room we were allocated. It was nice to have a balcony to relax on and free Wifi was a bonus.
The staff were so courteous, friendly and helpful with particular thanks to the ladies in the gift shop who helped us to find our way around.
Having no car, transport needed a bit of planning but the free bus to Universal Studios was a big plus and the same bus would drop off and pick up at the Metro.
The cafe was excellent both for snacks and meals and the pool area was lovely.
We could have done without two days of rain as we can see that in England but it was very warm rain!

I've traveled for over 2 decades and BG's staff and accommodations are exemplary! You will not find more attentive staff anywhere.

We stayed at Beverly Garland's Holiday Inn for 10 days in September on our vacation. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful trees and the grounds are very well kept up. The rooms are very conformable and we enjoyed the balcony. The food in the cafe is great and it's not expensive. The staff were so helpful and kind. We took advantage of the free shuttle to Universal Studios.City Walk. All the sites of Hollywood are so close. If you don't want to drive in LA, you can take the Metro. We definetely will be returning on vacation next year!

We were actually looking for the Holiday Inn Express and our nav system took us here instead--great mistake/kismet.
Really convenient for our purposes but I would imagine for just about anyone in the general area of Hollywood/Beverly Hills/North Hollywood.
As others have said great staff, very quiet and nicely appointed rooms. We had a sink outside the bathroom which made getting ready nice--but not all rooms have that we found out.
The only downside was the bartender wasn't very friendly and poured awfully small drinks but pretty minor overall--we didn't stay there for the bar by any means.
Would highly recommend.
