This, ladies and gentlemen, is the quintessential mid century motor hotel. It feels like time stood still, maybe apart from WiFi and microwave. The rooms are simple and there are a couple of dents and scratches, but the Beverly Laurel is clean, well-kept and, most importantly, boasts tons of character. And you just feel welcome. The reception is friendly and helpful. There’s a little pool. And there’s the fabulous Swingers diner in the same building. Perfect for breakfast or a late night dinner. Or if you don’t fancy some old school burger combos with today’s organic twist, feel free to stroll over to Melrose Avenue. It’s in walking distance but you maybe want to take the car as the streets empty out in the late evening. Considering you’re staying close to Beverly Hills and Hollywood, the rates are great value for money.
