We stayed at the Beverly Garland for 5 nights at the start of our holiday in California. The hotel is close to Universal Studios and offers a free shuttle to take you to and from Universal. The bus often got full quickly and resulted in the driver having to make two trips. This was not a problem but something to be aware of when planning on coming back from Universal. The parking is $14 which from doing some research is around the expected price.
The room was excellent, with no issues to report. The room did not have a safe or a fridge. However a safety deposit box could be found in the business center and you could rent a fridge if you wanted.
The Pool was excellent, with towels provided and a good spa pool and sauna. Films were shown on a screen in the pool at night.
The breakfast buffet was good with a nice selection this cost $13 which worked out cheaper than having drinks and ordering from the menu.
The location of the hotel is good if you have a car as you can travel on the freeway to your destination. If you don't have a car then there are limited eating options. There is a small shopping center at the top of Vineland where we went to a supermarket called Ralphs and had a sandwich - which I can recommend as well as an evening meal at a Chinese called City Wok. We also had breakfast at Jumba Juice where oatmeal with fruit was only a couple of dollars and gave a break from the larger breakfasts we had been having.
