“A Decent Motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2011

Overpriced for a "hotel" it's a decent motel. Clean, with a courteous and helpful staff. Great location (near Beverly and Fairfax), and a decent coffee shop onsite. However, it's got only the very basics in comfort, and while an effort was made to fix things up, it's easy to tell that this is an older property in need of some modern upgrades. You will pay extra for parking, Internet access, and roll-away beds. Confusing stairways with the occasional odd smell wafting through.

Room Tip: All rooms face out on the pool.

Old cracked peeling walls. The phone and the refrigerator did not work. There were missing doors on the bathroom cabinets, The staff threw away or stole my tempurpedic pillow within hours of my departure. Owner was rude and would not resolve the situation.

I've been staying in and recommending this place for years. It isn't a big chain, glamorous or sleek, you won't bump into any celebrities in the motel itself, but you might in Swinger's, the 24 hipster cafe attached to the place. Always clean, welcoming and a fairly recent remodel, I recommend it to any family or friends looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in a decent neighborhood. In all the years I've sent folks here, I've only heard rave reviews. For tourists, it's centrally located, so a trip to the Valley for Universal is reasonable - as is a trip to Santa Monica. You are a few blocks from Beverly Hills, a mile or so from the Sunset Strip and walking distance to some of the best restaurants in LA. Same goes for shoppers, close to Rodeo Drive, but also to all the cool Melrose shops, vintage stores, even the newly dubbed La Cienega design Quarter. Highly Recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side - though I will say, even the rooms right on Beverly are nice and qu...

This was our second stay here and it was even better than the first in 2010.
They charge $5,- a day now for parking but I think this is a good decision because last time we found it hard finding a space to park when coming back late at night. I guess there were just too many people parking at the hotel and not being an actual guest. In the parking there is an old abandoned car which I really like and definitely not should be removed because its part of the charm of the hotel.
Both times there was a film crew shooting at the hotel which immediately gives you the Hollywood feel.
Bruce and Roberto from the front desk were both very nice. We had package shipped to the hotel and they took care of it which was really nice.
Price is a bit high for my budget but reasonable because the location is perfect. Walking distance to the Beverly center, Melrose for shopping, Wholefoods market and Petersen Automotive and Lacma museums.
I asked for a top floor room at the back and we got room 310 which felt more like a small appartment than a hotel room. It had 2 windows, a kitchen, 2 queen beds, a table, two chairs, large closets and normal size bathroom in it. Beds were clean, comfortable and heating was working fine (there weren't extra blankets and it was cold at night so I had the turn the heater on, so putting extra blankets in the closets will save energy). Also the pattern of the bed covers was very nice. Our other room had purple which was a bit dark but these were yellow. And it was super quiet! We felt like moving in immediately and staying forever :)
Tv channels were poor and they charge extra for wifi but this didn't bother us because you're only there to sleep. There were only 2 lights in the room this was a bit dark when you need to repack and reorganise your stuff before going on the plane. No breakfast included but try the Swingers diner in the same building, they have everything you need.
Can't wait to stay here again, Beverly Laurel is the best !

What can I say to make you not want to go here ? Except that If your looking for a good hotel not LA ritz , but good price , free parking yup when you can get it fills up fast and damn internet 6 dollars for the day , unheard off , and it has a pool, not heated but who cares when its hot out , and the restaurant SWINGERS which is attached to eat is the best food and service that I have had for a dinner style and I have been alot of places over the yrs

The rooms are old style motel , two beds , shower and some have microwaves , which is what we had . The rooms are done in themes and are safe to stay at , you do hear alot but that is why they are called motels , but don't let that scare you this place is a DIAMOND MIND for price and area , and has elevators for the disabled

The staff are good , place is clean and your right down the street from the GROVE, and the big mall

Tones of places to walk and shop , and if your into working out the EASTON is across the street to pay and work out good place clean and the staff are swell

You cant not take this place for the price's , the bus line is easy to navigate also and the one bus takes you all the way to the SANTA MONICA PIER its long but you see the city for free and it was pretty safe considering all the horror stories that come out of LA

Room Tip: if you dont like alot of street noise ask for the side opposite SWINGERS hotel and the noise from t...

We stayed 5 nights and could not be happier with the place. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. Hotel was close to Hollywood attractions and nice bars and restaurants, 20 mins drive from pretty much everything i.e. Venice Beach, Hollywood Hills, Downtown, Burbank. No problem with security and we felt safe walking around at night. Swingers downstairs was nice, but was a bit disappointed with the breakfast after reading so many good reviews. Will definitely be back here if ever staying in LA again.
