“OK, good for the price”
Reviewed July 12, 2004

This hotel was basically what I expected for $100 a nite in West LA. The room we stayed in was smelly, pretty bad but not unbearable. The windows were kept open most of the time. The rooms were average size, a little shabby and worn but clean. The bathroom was clean but small and only had a shower. The pool was very cold (unheated) but since it was a hot weekend, it was refreshing. The main draw to this hotel is the price and the location. 5 minutes to the sunset strip, beverly hills and hollywood and right next to the grove, we walked to the farmers market for breakfast. It was a bit far from a freeway, and of course in LA that slows you down a lot.

I absolutely do not recommend this hotel. We stayed here (with our dog) largely based on the reviews on this site. we brought a scented candle beause of the reviews about smelly rooms. ours was smelly--smelled like mildew and the candle helped some. i could've dealt with the smell but the biggest problem was noise. people treated this "hotel" as a place to party; the acoustics are awful; and people woke us up with screams throughout the night. the hotel staff seemed to turn a blind eye.

the room next to ours was rented out and was used for a play in the evening (about 9:30)! the people were yelling "----," screaming at each other, and slamming doors all as part of the play (we didn't know till later it as a play and it was not just disturbing but terrifying as well--especiallyto our dog).

the beds were the worse ive ever slept on (way too soft). we slept on the floor the 2nd night (didn't have time to find a new hotel with our pet as we had a busy schedule in LA with vartious friends) as my back went out and i had to use ointment on it for most of the trip.

the almost 24 hour diner below also adds noise to the hotel. this is absolutely the worst place ive ever stayed in and i am not too picky. as stated i was prepared to deal with the smell but it was impossible to get rest day or night in this hotel.

to be fair, the manager did reduce our bill by some amount after we complaned about the noise and the play (about 15-20 peope were in one room watching the play and then later standing directly outside our room talking loudly about it and congratulations the actors etc)

if you want rest go elsewhere, if you want to stay up late and party and dont need much else stay at the beverly laurel.

The Beverly Laurel is fantastic! Great location and excellent rooms. Priced right. One of LA's best kept secrets. The diner ajoining the hotel - 'Swingers' - is very funky with ever helpful staff. Only a short walk to most of LA's top shoping or attractions. Friendly staff and quiet at night.

I will definately be staying at the Beverly Laurel on my return trip to the United States!
