"....old, dirty, misrepresented.."
Ok .. I saw the reviews, but booked it anyway because I had a meeting downtown early in the am.. would have paid extra for somewhere else, farther sway. Got to the hotel, watched other people arguing about conditions, got checked in by grumpy old Armenian guy and then saw what I signed up for.. Pool under construction, no laundry, no main restrooms […] and then the room.... Ich Hot, dirty, broken a/c, cigarette burns on carpet and furniture, blood stains on floor, smelled horrible and very thin walls... Go pay more somewhere else..

Just terrible, I booked several rooms because of the location just right for my needs. Arriving at the inn we noticed the police, ladies of the evening asking if anyone was ready to party... The rooms were a disaster the beds looked worn out, the carpet had a worn path of dirt . It also smelled terrible...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall pretty decent for a low budget motel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth it."
As soon as I walked in to the room I knew that I had make a mistake. For the price, I would expect carpet and bedspreads that are less than 30 years old. Both of which, seemed to harbor a funk that we could not get to escape. The room seemed quiet, and had ammenties such as parking and a pool, but that didn't balance the grunge. If you're looking to […] stay in the 1980's this is the place, if you're looking for something a little nicer and closer to shops or restaurants, I would go elsewhere.

"just close to Korean Town"
Service was not even O.K. The receptionist was not kind. I waited for 40 minutes to get my key. It was 9:00 p.m. when I called the front desk to ask a couple of shower towels, they asked me why I asked them towels and they said to wait until 9:00 am. next morning. I've never experienced such a mean service as this motel. Don't go to this motel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was helpful, but the place needs a major facelift. The location would indicate a much more upscale hotel. It has great potential for the design and location, but something just wasn't right. It felt very grim and dark, the floor in the room creaked when I walked across it, and I felt a bit like Janet Leigh in Psycho. Thankfully, unlike Janet, […] I survived my stay at the Dunes Motel.

"Perfect for a quick stay!"
I stayed here with my girlfriend when plans to crash with friends nearby fell-through. It was great for our needs. No funky smells, clean & soft carpets, soft-enough sheets, no leaks, complimentary wi-fi, good mid-town location. I would probably not go here for vacation, but it's perfectly suited for an overnight stay or quick economy visit for business. […] Good neighborhood, not loud or sketchy. Easy parking and easy access to the room. I will probably end up staying here again if I need to crash in LA. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"One Night Business Stay"
I wasn't expecting much, so overall I was satisfied ... a pretty good deal for the $. Having said that, it was very difficult to find a nearby restaurant, and the channels on the TV were very limited.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is all it has"
The location of this hotel was fabulous - that is why we chose it. The lobby, elevator and room were not just dated, but very worn. the cleanliness had much to be desired. Hole in sheets, dirt smudges on furiture, grit on bathroom floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was located outside the area of action but, all in all, the room seemed clean and comfortably sized. Free parking was definitely a plus, although the parking spots themselves were tight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It"s was good hotel in LA. Had a great time there. thank you ,Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Out of the way for WeHo but close to museums"
I think the hotel is a budget hotel that could use some upgrading but the price was not outrageous for the area. It is a nice safe environment unlike many in the Hollywood area and easy to find. Not that far from Santa Monica and good for tourists but not business travelers. They need room upgrades for TVs and some other things. The day I was there, […] on a Saturday, it was very quiet and the staff was very kind and friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean linen can't be beat"
Except for the late night staff argument, everything was as I expected for the price. The lobby and elevator reeked of cigarette smoke, but fortunately the room didn't. The sheets and linen were clean and the bed was comfortable. Except for the squeaking bed from the couple getting it on in the adjoining room, the night was quiet enough for a good sleep. […] It's not the Ritz Carlton, but it works for an overnight stay and the pool looked nice in the courtyard. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old but nice"
The room was old school, but comfortable. I found it to be a great value for the price. I only stayed one night. The room was clean and it was quiet, got a great night sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
N,,o in room coffee or was coffee available in the hotel. No hair drier or iron in room. TV and lamps bolted down so you couldn't move or turn them Parking was very tight, but room was was quite large. rated 2 starsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was rude, and the room was small, cramped and not the cleanest for the price I paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price the Dunes is a nice hotel----Very easy free parking, easy walk to Western Metro stop, quiet safe section of Wiltshire Blvd.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inconvenient location and not coffee"
The facility itself is old, but seems to be well maintained. It has free parking and a decent pool (I used neither). It also has free wi-fi, although if you use Chrome as your browser, the login screen will not appear and the on-duty staff did not ask what browser I was using when I called to troubleshoot. I figured out that if I used the Internet Explorer […] the login screen would appear. The bed was comfortable. The TV does not have much of a selection and the remote that I had worked intermittently. The biggest problem is that is at least a half-mile from the nearest restaurant or retail. I had to make sure that I ate before I returned to the hotel as I was using public transportation.. What really got me was that the only coffee was from an old-fashioned vending machine. You know the kind that makes instant coffee drinks. I am doing a temporary job at Wilshire and Vermont for the next couple of months and I will be staying elsewhere.

Other than that, the location was relatively close to the LA County Museum of Art, the La Brea Tar Pits, the Farmer's Market and the Grove And the airport not far either. That was helpfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably priced and close to many attractions!"
Great location, reasonably priced. Room has mini fridge and microwaves are available near pool area. Convenient and safe free parking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overpriced & not well kept"
I would not stay at this place if iget paid. Room was filthy and over priced. I rather pay a bit more & stay with known brand. The people working over there think they making things happen for you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for money, close to the good stuff"
This place was a pleasant surprise. It's only a few minutes away from the Hollywood strip, so the surprisingly low price made me think that, well, something would be sketchy. But nope -- it was clean and comfortable, and even had a refrigerator to boot. We'll definitely stay here again. Oh, and free parking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, updated room. Comfortable bed. Hotel was too open to the street that I saw a vagabonder come in to use the bathroom in the pool area. So I didnt feel as safe. And the person that checked me in was not very helpful. I asked where the pizza place was, but he didnt offer a phone number or anything.There was no directory in the room or no alarm clock […] and only 4 channels on the TV worked.

After a long trip I was very pleased with the location of. The Dunes Inn. It was right down the street from the event me & my girlfriend would be visiting later that night and was close to the Hollywood strip so after getting bored after 20 minutes we were able to easily make the trip and check out some local stores. The hotel room was average though! […] It &the bathroom was kinda small as well. Upon arrival I was given a usernam& pW for WiFi. IT DIDNT WORK! we tried to watch TV but the majority of the channels were in another language.. ALSO I am really big on comfort... The bed was okay but the covers were itchy After a quick nap I woke up feeling sick... It could have been because I slept with the air conditioner(swamp cooler) on but I was very uncomfortable being in the room any longer and we left for the night... After getting back the microwaves by the pool were convenient for a midnight snack before bed and cough drops! Oh! The parking is very open during the day but packed at night! Good luck finding a spot..i found one but it was next to a. White pillar and I wound up getting white paint all on my car smh... stay at the Dunes if you really need a place to sleep for the night while in town but if you want to enjoy yourself i advise saving more money & getting something better. I think I might have felt more comfy in a Motel but my girl is highclass so.. Next time imma have to save some lunch money...good luck and I hope this helped! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Satisfactory place in good location"
Overall, I was pleased with the hotel. The service at the desk was excellent was quick to help when I was locked out of the room. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The sink was a small and it was hard to fit the grooming items for two teenage females and myself. It was surprizingly quiet in the evening concidering the proximity of a […] very busy street. The food at the restaurant was excellent, would recommend it to anyone. Many places to eat or get coffee very near and very close to any location in hollywood. Easy freeway access, but exiting the parking lot is a little challenging because of the busy street it is on. Overall is a nice hotel for the price, but a a little pricey for an average hotel, although its a fair trade for its very convenient location and close proximity to so many places in hollywood and Los Angeles. I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not on my top 50 list."
Old time hotel. Think 1950's or 1960's. Room was clean. Smoke alarm was on bathroom floor under sink. Don't know why. Parking was terrible. Very small spots with poles at end of spaces every second and third spot. My car ended up with no less than 3 dents due to vehicles being unable to open their doors next to me. Ok for a last ditch hotel but not […] on my top 50 list to go to. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A decent 3* with a convenient location and good $"
The location is good, the prices are reasonable. I agree with some other reviewer that the doors are shaking and the door locks seem to be just formalities on the way of burglars. Though, it is more of a psychological problem of the tourists... The parking lots are a bit narrow, so it may take up to 10min for an unexperienced driver to park a car. The […] rooms are not new, but in a decent condition and have everything one may need from a 3-star place. The booking via expedia (or any other booking provider) is somewhat cheaper than booking directly at the hotel's reception. Overall, a good 3-star. I recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"On a Tight Budget"
With the 15% discount offered for the two nights we stayed at the Dunes Wilshire, we were very happy with the choice. We were on a tight budget at this end of our month away from home in Australia, so were happy to be able to find a nice clean and comfortable motel in this location. It was also chosen as a major Los Angeles tour company were able to […] pick us up from this motel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

WENT TO WEST HOLLYWOOD FOR PRIDE WEEKEND IT WAS CLOSE TO THE EVENT THE PRICE WAS REALLY REASONABLE PARKING WAS FREE AND SAFE THE AREA WAS NICE THE ONLY THING THAT BUGGED ME WAS THAT THE A/C DIDN'T WORK THAT GOOD.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Oversall pleasant stay"
Maybe a little pricey for what it was, but it was not bad. You could tell the hotel was an older hotel and the room smelled old too; opening a window and turning on the fan helped with that, though the street and even the a/c unit were loud. The bathroom looked like it was recently renovated. The parking spaces are kind of hard to get in and out of, […] but there was no fee. Overall our room was pretty clean and quiet. There are quite a few fast food restaurants as well as Korean restaurants and lots of stores surrounding the hotel. Wilshire Blvd is full of good shopping. Korea Town is not far from the hotel. Staples Center was about 15-20 minutes away, and was not a bad drive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth the money you spend on it"
It is a good hotel considering the price. Everything was fine there and you have a pleasing experience. But you shouldn't have high expectations.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Comfortable and economical"
My stay was comfortable and affordable... I was just in town for a couple of days to attend a conference. It was not fancy or glitzy but adequate for my needs. Front desk was cordial but businesslike. Even though my conference was at Staples Center I chose this place because it is toward the nicer side of LA and not eerie like downtown LA. Liked have […] fridge in room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dunnes in hotel in LA"
I would not recommend this hotel at all!! Horrible experience!!!! Really bad customer service in person and over the phone afterword. It was suppose to be a nice fun family trip and turned out to ruin the fun! The pool was not heated so my lil ones where not able to use the pool, rooms smelled like cigarettes, not to mention all rooms where supposed […] to be non smoking. It was so bad my husband and I could smell it on our clothes and it gave us headaches. Again, will never book this hotel or recommend this hotel to anybody!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I wouldn't stay here again"
I stayed here in large part due to the positive reviews. Who is giving these reviews, though? The room had cheap dilapidated 20 year old furniture and smelled of nasty Indian fragrance to cover up the cigarette smoke. The bed was supposed to be a queen, but was closer to a double and the sheets had cigarette burn holes in them! No hair dryer, iron, […] nor ironing board was available. I wasn't comfortable leaving anything of value inside the room because there was no deadbolt and the door didn't close tightly. The door could have been easily opened by slipping a credit card into the lock. I mention this because the clientele here seemed questionable at best. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This was new years eve, check was smooth. The room was spacious but very bland. There was few toothpicks on the nightstand and the bathroom was wiped down with a towel that wasn't rinsed.

"Dunes Inn Wilshire - two thumbs down"
The outside of this hotel is very deceiving. It looks like it would be a very nice hotel, but it's a neatly disguised hole in the wall.....literally. Doesn't appear that they have considered any upgrades in decades, the stark blank walls in the room reminds me of a jail cell. The check-in process was gruelling, they actually scanned copies of my DL […] and credit card into their computer and had me sign at least 3 documents as if this was a 5 star location with tempting items to steal. Give me a break. This hotel was BOTTOM OF THE BARREL and I will never ever stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wilshire Dunes - what else you want?"
I used to stay at this place on business back in the 80s, but hadn't been to LA for awhile. Needed a place for a couple of nights and looked them up, only to find fairly low ratings. However, this place is better than before. Seems to have had a complete updating of rugs, fixtures, etc. Only problem was the TV stations were hard to access, but really […] didn't need TV much. Finally, I have sciatica which makes sleeping somewhat painful, but the mattresses were so good I haven't slept as well for months. Best deal in town. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
