“Californian treasure at a great price”
Reviewed 27 June 2010

Just back from a week at the Beverley Garland Holiday Inn in North Hollywood. I got the hotel on a deal with Travelocity Top Secret and was delighted. I travelled with 2 children age 8 and 11 and was there to do the sites and see friends. The hotel has had a recent refurb and the public areas are trendy and fresh with a californian styling. Lovely pool area with hot tub which the kids loved. Full dining available and smart outdoor chill out patio area. Rooms were clean and functional. Ours was in the block at the back which only had a carpark view but was quiet and had a balcony.- there was another block with rooms overlooking the pool and patio areas too which were probably the same inside but you pay more for the view. Free wifi was great and there was also a small free business area with printer. The hotel also had a free shuttle service which takes you to and from Universal Studios and the Universal City Walk - it also stopped at the metro but we didn't use that. Staff were helpful and very friendly. There is a walkable supermarket but the hotel has a little shop which was ideal for room bits and pieces. On site restaurant and bar. We just had breakfast in the restaurant which was buffet style and plentiful. The hotel was very relaxing after manic days spent out and about. I would definitely recommend it and would use it as a base for another visit.

We stayed here for four nights in June. There is a shuttle bus from here to Universal Studios that is free. Apart from that the location is approximately a 15 minute drive from the hotel to Hollywood Boulevard and longer to everywhere else. Be aware that they charge for parking $14 a night.

Apart from that this is a large, clean hotel. The facilities are good, nice rooms, comfortable bed, good shower, swimming pool. As for complaints about the noise from the road, we didnt have any trouble at all. Also, be aware that breakfast is not included in the price.

For the price, this is a good deal in LA!

We loved this hotel, had a nice "old hollywood" feel to it, when we walked into the room it was a very 'warm and welcoming' feeling with great lighting and feel. Bed was extremly comfortable, great TV cable programming and bathroom.
It had a great restaurant on the premisis where we had breaky and dinner a few times. The only letdown was the reception staff, they weren't really interested in us and just wanted to get us in and out but apart from that was great!

We were a family of 4 . Hotel has good location only if you are visiting Universal studios.
Otherwise it on a busy highway & there is hardly any dining options( restaurant) within walking distance ( except the Restuarant in the Hotel) Free shuttle to Universal Studios is punctual & conventient. Free internet is a bonus.
Our bathroom had a blocked sink, also the exhaust fan in the bathroom was permanently `on' - could not be swiched off , & made noise at night - I complained at the front desk but nothing happened. Our Room did not have any fridge or safety locker ( I had to use the locker at the reception). Apart from these problems it was a nice stay

The Beverly Garland's Holiday Inn far exceeded my expectations. We stayed in a kids suite which was fabulous, very spatious with fridge and microwave and sectioned off bunk bed area which the kids loved. The pool area and especially the jaccuzzi was beautiful, never too busy and open til 10pm and since we left there is the added bonus of a new poolside bar! I would highly recommend the gorgeous food in the hotel restaurant too. Yes, it is close to the freeway and there is a small amount of noise but hey, you're on the freeway in less than a minute which was great. The free shuttle bus to Universal Studios was a great bonus and runs all day into the evening which is great for an evenings visit to City Walk. The staff were always helpful and friendly and the room was cleaned immaculately every day. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beverly Garland and will definitely stay again if I am lucky enough to get back to Los Angeles.

Spent 7 nights here. Excellent value hotel, swimming pool never crowded plenty of beds,
Staff very helpful and friendly. Close to Universal Studios,free shuttle from hotel. Metro or private hire best way to see sights. Check for fixed price when booking private hire.
Lovely comfortable rooms, a pleasure to stay there.

I was surprised being a Holiday Inn hotel that it was so poor. The room was facing the highway so the noise was incessant. Despite being a non-smoking room it stank of stale smoke and damp. The room was also poorly cleaned.
The only good thing going for this hotel was it's location to Universal Studio!
