I'm used to more upscale hotels but this place was very clean and the people were nice. I have no complaints at all :) I would stay here again if I had the need to stay in Hollywood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Older motel but i thought is was a pretty cool place. Not the most up to date but i like the vintage feel of facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For a reasonable fee centrally located in West Hollywood, retro and funky - no phoney upscale frooo frooo here - safe and sufficient. The restaurant has good food, even for vegetarians, and is convenient for breakfast especially. We have stayed here many times and been satisfied. The most recent stay was disappointing because of excessive noise to the […] point where sleep was impossible until 3:00 AM, when I finally called the front desk in desperation. People can't smoke in their rooms, and were smoking and chatting along the walkways in the courtyard; the courtyard is like a tiled bowl and sound just echoes around in there. Hopefully this was because of the Oscars and won't be the new norm, because I won't be back if it is. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A bit tattered on the edges, but a good place"
Feels like a throw back to Melrose Place, but can't beat it for the price. Very comfortable and easy parking. Great coffee shop downstairs where we had daily breakfast and dinner one evening. Location is also great!Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is terrible. Shouldnt be in BH...I would have been more comfortable at a Travelodge or the like. Service and manager was offensive and rude.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice place to stay, but not the Ritz!"
This hotel is very quaint. It was built in 1964 and seems to have stayed there. Our room was very large with a old microwave and small refrigerator. The bed was a California King and was comfortable but needed to be replaced. The shower was nice but needed a new shower head. Unless you like getting pelted by a hard mist. Overall, the hotel was an OK […] place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"For the location and Swingers"
Great part of walkable LA. Swingers is delicious. We stayed in an amazing huge room on the corner behind the cool "Beverly Laurel" sign seen from the street. However, they need to step it up with the cleanliness. Felt a bit damp and grimy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is great. It is dated but some rooms are renovated and the location is great if you need to be by Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. The price is economical and hotel is well worth the price. Adjacent cafe is great. Parking is reasonable. Very 1960's LA feel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, convenient, inexpensive"
We were happy to find this place on hotels.com. Stayed her only one night on our way to San Diego from LAX. It is an old hotel with lots of history. Loads of photos of famous people that stayed and partied here in the hey-day of Hollywood. Very convenient. Free parking. Room was very nice and remodeled in the theme of the good old days. A great diner […] attached to the hotel on the corner. Probably a landmark although we don't know the area. Not a 5-star hotel in any means, so if you are not into something with character and have an experience, stay somewhere else. I would recommend this place to friends and definitely stay here again. Thx. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"under construction winter2013"
we had a great experience as always at the Beverly Laurel hotel. swingers has long been my favorite place to grab breakfast lunch and dinner in LA. Great little hang out. attached to the hotel and open extremely late! ***** as of January 2013, the rooms what are under renovation. The only issue we had was that construction starts at 9am sharp! We had […] a long flight the night before and did not get a chance to sleep in.***** otherwise, always a great experience Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rate was very good given the location and overall quality of the hotel. However, during my stay there the elevator was not functioning, forcing long climbs to get to top floors. Also the room was not well insulated from noise made by other guests smoking and hanging out on the outdoor walkway outside the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not a good experience"
The rooms were loud and not very clean. The shower was missing the shower head. The mini fridge was broken. The front staff were rude and not accomodating. They nickle and dime charge you for everything - parking, "energy fees", wi-fi, etc. so the rate adds up and is not worth it.Genuine Expedia guest review
When we arrived, the man at the front desk let us know where to park, but failed to tell us that there was a charge for parking. Granted it was only $5, it still would have been nice to know that. The room was clean, large and pleasant (we stayed in a corner room). It seems like the place was surface clean, but could use a good deep clean and perhaps […] some new furniture and carpet. There was also a broken down car in the garage which was an eye-sore, and took up an extra spot (the garage was full when we returned at night, but there were other spots above ground). The blanket on the bed was quite thin, but when we called the front desk to ask for an extra blanket, they quickly brought one up. Check out time was noon, which was nice. And breakfast at the trendy diner downstairs was very good. I would not stay here again, but for a one night stay and for the location, it was fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun in WEHO!!!"
I loved the retro appeal of the hotel! The only thing is that there are a few charges that I was not really anticipating upon arrival. Like the charge for parking at the hotel, WiFi, and energy cost for using the microwave and fridge that is located in the room. I mean come on, like the room charge isn't enough to cover the cost of using the fridge? […] over all the experience was great though, friendly staff and there's a cute little diner called Swingers right on the corner of the hotel's building! Other than the little stupid charges they get you for, there experience was great and I loved the hotel! Will definitely book there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

THE STAFF WAS EXTREMLY HELPFUL THE ROOMS WERE CLEAN AND THE LOCATION GREAT .GREAT VALUE OR THE PRICE.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The good and the bad"
This hotel is dreadfully outdated It could be so cute if the decor was updated, the rooms repainted, linens updated, and some of the bulky,old furniture removed. It has great potential. The refrigerator did not work, the top dresser drawer was broken and fell forward if pulled out, the ironing board would not stand up. The cabinet in the bathroom seems […] to be missing a sliding door and is marred and scarred. The restaurant downstairs is terrible. Parking in the alley behind the hotel is kind of scary at night. On the plus side - the location is great. It is within walking distance of the Farmers Market and the Price is Right. The office staff is great. They are very hellpful, friendly and courteous. The beds are very comfortable! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Outside, it looks like an average motel like place with rooms surrounding a pool in the middle. The elevator was small and slow and we had to use an actual key to open the rooms. However, the room was quite nice and spacious with a flat screen TV. Upon seeing the bathroom, I knew why everything else was average b/c they spent all the money on the bathroom. […] It was like the same size as the rest of the room and a long stone shower with two showerheads (one on either side). Overall it was a good experience and a great deal for the money and the location Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you want to be up all night, then this is the place for you. I was supposed to spend two nights & checked out after one. It was so noisy from about 3:00am to 4:30am. I was so cold because the blankets are very thin.Genuine Expedia guest review
"DID NOT LIKE THIS MOTEL........."
This motel was ok----I guess I'm not use to staying in a motel(all doors are facing a courtyard). A lot of noise compared to a hotel,(street noise,doors slamming, heavy walking above your head) you hear it ALL!! Location is great. Two blocks from the CBS studio and 9 miles from the airport. Swingers Diner @ Motel is GREAT. Motel has only 3 floors and […] I was on the first floor(I should have asked for the 3rd floor) so I asked the day after check-in to be relocated to a higher floor and was told I can do it the next day.......Next day came the clerk said Motel was full.

"Needs a lot of work!"
Pictures show flat wall mount TV and Photoshopped different angle images, but the reality is a lot different. Way over priced, I was familiar with the area so was expecting a lot more. The "Swingers Cafe" down stairs does have some amazing food though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is over priced and not of the best quality. We had dirty towels and a rat hole next to the refrigerator. The rooms are a nice size, but a little ruin down. They allow pets, which was helpful, however they charge $50 a pet a day. Internet is an addition fee and you can only use one device on it. As is the parking, but be careful of you drive […] a larger vehicle. The parking garage and spaces are small. The location is ok. It's a 10 min drive to the Hollywood area and 21 mins to the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. I paid the same price per night at a Four Points of Sherton near LAX and had better amenities and rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Probably Not Again"
I stayed here because of the value I was quoted over a three night weekend. The hotel is in a good neighborhood with cheap parking and WiFi near West Hollywood. The downside? It's loud, as the windows look out onto the pool (think "Melrose Place"), and the room definitely needed to be remodeled. There are other hotels in the area which are competitive […] in price if you book early enough and of better quality. I probably will not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I live in LA and put my father up in this hotel bc it was somewhat affordable and convenient and I thought it was supposed to be a very cute & retro place. The rooms only have window units - and the one in my dad's room froze up and would not work.Also - the hotel charged the credit card used to make the reservation - which to me is not the norm. Nor […] was it stated anywhere that the charge would be made prior to arrival or even checkout. When we asked to change the payment card the front desk attendant said we would have to do it at checkout and the reservation card would need to be present. On the departing day the front desk attendant spoke so little english that we could not get the cards changed. All in all this place was NOT worth the money and I would absolutely NEVER recommend it to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very dissapointing weekend stay!"
Room was not well kept, very old and needed much TLC. Had a musty and old smell as we walked in and AC was not working throughout the duration of our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a bad value AND not a great place to stay."
Wi Fi wouldn't work and the desk guy couldn't fix it. Room had window A/C which was not on when we arrived. Took several hours for room to cool down. Very spartan appointments (no carpeting, for example, lousy tiny towels. It's not a bad value for the money, just not a very great place to stay. The TV was great, as was the bed. Parking, while an extra […] charge, was very reasonable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was pretty much what i expected, which wasnt much. It was funny how you could park your cars by the pool. Our room was fine. I bet when they opened this place it was THE place to be. We had a wet bar, fridge, microwave and AC....bottle opener in the bathroom. Everything was just very outdated. Plenty of space to get ready (We had 3 girls fully getting […] ready and there was plenty of mirror and table space) It was close to the beverly center (short cab ride...dont walk) and a close cab ride to food around. Would i stay here again? Yeah probably. sheets were clean which is one of the most important to me. and the TV worked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming hotel with difficult doors"
Great hotel! We loved the vintage look and the great location. My only issue was the locks on the doors are a bit difficult and the remote looked like it hasn't been touched since 1995 it was so dusty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for turists, convenient location"
I was a little hesitant because I thought: West Hollywood?! But it turned out to be a business area, conveniently close to many locations: Santa Monica Pier, Universal Studios, Six Flags, Citadel, Sunset Blvd, etc. It is an older retro style hotel but nothing old-looking worn out stuff. just an older building than we might be used in Southern California, […] but solid and nice... Next time we have people over again, will recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Beverly Laurel was the perfect place to stay in Hollywood. It's an old Motel that's had a face-lift. Definitely a mid-century modern feel. The room was very comfortable and I loved the fun decor. There's a great diner with friendly service right downstairs and The Grove/Farmers Market, Canters, 3rd Ave. for shopping are all within walking distance. […] Sunset and Hollywood Blvd. are just a hop and a skip away, too. I will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a family hotel ."
Dingy, kitchen area reasonable looking. No kettle or coffee making facilities. Guests smoking outside there rooms had to tread over them to get to your room, smelt of smoke in rooms where it blew in. Could have done with security to ask guests to keep there voices down we were keep awake all night with loud voices . We had to pay extra for electricity […] we were never informed before we booked, I have never paid separately for electricity you have to have lighting that was a big con. Television didn't work. The worst accommodation we have stayed in on our vocation and the dearest, definitely the worst value. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location is the only good thing."
The one good thing is location, location, location. Facility is old and in run down condition. Great location if you plan on going to CBS for the Price Is Right, since its only two blocks away. If not; get a hotel by the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review

Reasonably priced and clean, this hotel would have been perfect...except for the antiquated kitchen appliances. If a refrigerator leaks and the stove hasn't worked properly since the 70's, please remove them!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very very old hotel"
This hotel was expensive for what you get. It was very very old and very difficult to park at (and you get charged for it too!!). The shower sprayed in all directions. The water tasted horrible. The bathtub was dirty. Need I say more?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good price for LA"
This is an older hotel. The elevator was creaky. The key to the room was very difficult to turn and the door itself looked very flimsy. My husband put a chair against the door. The bathroom had been beautifully remodeled. There's no complimentary breakfast, but the diner next to the hotel is very good. The pool was nice and parking was easy and cheap […] for LA. We were traveling with our teenaged daughter and the first night they were all out of rollaway beds so we had to make up a bed for her on the floor. Not comfortable! We were able to get a rollaway bed for the next two nights. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Hipster's Retreat"
The hotel is old, but they do a good job maintaining it. The rooms were restored with a youthful hipster vibe. If you're a prissy white-bread stale housewife, you won't like it. If you are someone who likes to have fun and enjoys a bit of kitsch, you'll love it. Plus they have a really cool diner with some great vegan options downstairs. It's also […] close enough to everything you want to do in West Hollywood, with in walking distance of some great malls. I would recommend this hotel to my friends, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to people who like being pampered or need perfection. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was great. Huge bathroom vanity for the 2 of us. Location excellent for sightseeing. Carpet, however, def needed to be cleaned. It is on a busy street so a bit noisy not bad. The worst was very thoughtless, loud people a couple doors down who woke us up both nites at 2:00a and kept us awake for over an hour but that's not the hotel's fault. […] Overall, liked the place very much. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Very Clean!"
The parking is not very good. I had to park my brand new car in the very small underground parking where overnight leaking pipes dripped on it all night. The room was dusty. The microwave and refrigerator had something splashed all over the front. Good thing I brought my own lysol spray and antibacterial wipes! The AC didn't cool the room either it […] was very humid and hot. All these things aren't even the worst of it. The shower had a condom wrapped around the shower head. When I told the manager his only response was "It must have been the teenage boy who stayed in that room before me." All around horrible experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We had a great stay here. Rooms are basic and slightly dated but they are clean and comfortable. Not the place you'd want for a romantic getaway but fine if you just need to get your head down.

"clean room, comfortable bed"
The room was clean, bed and pillows were comfortable, good bathroom counter space, quiet location. I liked view of the courtyard/pool area instead of a wall like some hotels in this price range. Diner downstairs for breakfast was convenient. Our room had a couple of minor inconviences such as some electrical outlets didn't work, especially the desk […] area, and I had to climb on a chair to adjust the air conditioner which was very high on the wall.
