"Not worth close proximity"
This hotel was not at all what I was expecting. The pictures from the site looked nice enough, and the rating was 3.4/5, but this was much more like a 1 star hotel, if that. There was bulletproof glass everywhere and the location seemed extremely unsafe. The room was dirty and made me feel extremely uncomfortable. Even though it was only four blocks […] from the place I needed to be for work, the poor conditions were certainly not worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fine for a night to stay. No frills. It did the trick for our one night stay in greater Los Angeles.Genuine Expedia guest review
Air Conditioner was so loud we couldn't sleep. Could hear people walking around on second floor. We left early.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dunes Inn conveniently located and comfortable"
The Dunes Inn Hollywood is conveniently located to many of the attractions in Hollywood. Parking and wireless internet are free. Our room was clean and comfortable. The furnishings are a little dated, but the bathroom has been updated very nicely. We were very happy with our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This property is great if you want to be close to the entertainment venues in Hollywood and aren't spending more than two nights. The lobby staff were courteous and very helpful. The downsides are the noisy surroundings (Sunset Blvd. in general) and our room was poorly ventilated. Other than that, I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Our hotel stay was good. The room was clean and maid service was great. Everything was in good working condition. I would have liked to have had a coffee machine in our room . I think this was the first place I have stayed in that didn't have one in the room. It also would have been nice to have had a TV sheet that told what stations were what. I would […] reccommend this hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room had some updates, but the mattresses need replaced. It was clean and located close to the main attractions. Only downfall was no microwave in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice enough for a quick stay. Close to Hollywood. Neighbourhood safe or so it seemed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient in LA"
If you are looking for a place just to crash with no frills, this is your place. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was small but very clean. We were only in the room at night to sleep and shower so it was perfect for us. It is very close to the 101 freeway and near the heart of all things Hollywood. We would stay here again, as long […] as it was just for sleeping. If you are looking for a resort style hotel, this is NOT the place for you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice convenient hotel"
Location is very good for tourists interested in Hollywood attractions. The restaurant's staff are friendly and food price/quality wise is very good. The room is quite small and although the beds may accommodate up to four people in the room but there is no space to move around if you are more than two.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to many things"
not bad except for the bed not good soft and oldGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the area."
Good hotel in nice condition for the area. Can be a bit noisy. Has lots of younger people staying thus lots of activity.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noise Noise Noise"
Don't stay at Dunes unless you plan on not sleeping. This place was party central on Saturday night, and I was kept awake until 4am. Even the next night wasn't much quieter, as the walls are paper thin. Also the restaurant/lounge is not open weekends??? Apparently even their own folks don't want to deal with the riff raff. Nice rooms, convenient location […] and decent price did not make up for all this. In fact, those are probably the reasons for all of it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and price!"
I loved this hotel. It is an old, inexpensive hotel but the staff was friendly (seemed like it is family-run) and the place was so clean! Improvements could be made to the bedding (thin sheets, comforter and pillows) but the updated bathroom and location to great attractions at an affordable price makes this a great place! I would return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good deal for the area"
An older hotel that has been recently been updated including new bathrooms. All but the furnishings are in fresh condition. The furnishings certianly could stand to be replaced. All in all a good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Road warriors on a budget"
Convenient location, rooms were surprisingly well maintained /upgraded compared to what you would expect from the exterior. The attached lounge/diner has good food and friendly service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay here"
The worst place I've stayed at, very dirty,staff not helpful at all. There were hookers outside my room, no iron, terrible place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great deal super good location"
First time here, read reviews and decided it was worth it. Great deal, super clean room, recently renovated, super nice staff, very knowleadgable of sorrounding areas, the guy propbably saved us money by giving us transportation advice. Free parkinig and wifi. Walking distance to metro, neighborhood is lively even late at night, sketchy people like […] all over LA. Would stay there many times. Highly recommend.

"Cross country adventure"
Front desk Staff-Curtis was so accommodating and friendly. He even suggested cool places to visit in Hollywood. The food was great at the restaurant nearby and offered 10% discount on hotel guest. It's most convenient and everything is close by. Overall experience was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean, friendly, OK."
We were content with the stay, and the staff were friendly.but a drawback was that the restaurant next door, which was mentioned in the advertisement, was closed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I'll give it two stars (one for parking and one because the room was relatively clean), but this place had me frustrated from the moment I checked in. They required a $100 hold on my credit card even though I had already paid for the room upfront. The restaurant/bar/lounge that they advertise (and one of the reasons I picked this particular hotel) is […] actually closed all weekend. The walls were incredibly thin; I hardly got any sleep because I was next to a room of drunken Australian men. There was also an ashtray outside of my non-smoking room, so people would congregate there to smoke. The blinds were actually shutters which did not close all the way, so lights and shadows were let into the room all night. The towels were tiny and worn. The tv channels were primarily in other languages, and the HBO they claim to have, came in fuzzy and hard to watch. And the heater would only blast warm air for 30 seconds about once every 20-30 minutes, so I had to take the blankets off the 2nd bed and use them on mine as well. If you want something better in the same price range, I preferred Hollywood Hotel (a little out of the way, but big, clean rooms and a free breakfast buffet) and Hollywood Celebrity Hotel (which is walking distance to all the action.)

"good hotel for overnight"
Very kindly staff, help us given good information regarding places and transportation, also with batteries.Genuine Expedia guest review
The perfect motel to end our Route 66 trip. Vintage and on the route.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A terrible experience!"
Bad neighbourhood, noisy, thin walls, grungy appearance and state of repair, flimsy towels, terrible smell in room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Price is Right"
Nothing spectacular but for the condition and location, the price is right and would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good price in that area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Updated rooms, yet need updated furniture & linen."
While the updating of the actual room is superb, the things in it need definite replacing. The bathroom & sink area looks brand new. The bed was hard as a rock, the pillow almost nonexistent & the linens paper thin (towels & sheets). Location wasn't where I expected. I don't think much of anything is in walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't Stay Here"
We've come to expect certain things in travel accommodations, and when those things aren't a part of the service, we're disappointed. For instance -- friendly customer service (the clerk was surly); coffeemaker in the room (none); towels that aren't strips of cloth (the worst towels we've ever encountered in a hotel); a continental breakfast (an overpriced […] cafe). If the price was as low as the service, that would be one thing, but the price is such that you would expect the services above to be provided. No such luck here. In addition, the mattress was cheap and uncomfortable; the lighting in the room was horrible (no lamps); and just all around, a not so good experience. Don't waste your money. You'll be unhappy here.

"It was just ok."
This was an ok stay for the night. We were staying the night because we had a show to see on Hollywood Blvd. The location was good. No blow dryer or coffee maker. The water glasses were plastic cups. The tv was a tube type with very limited channels, not even local stations were available to watch the news.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Motel - not a hotel."
Low quality motel, which does not deserve to be on hotels.com list. I stayed in total of 4 hotels, through hotels.com, during this family trip. This was the worst. Smelly, small room. Also hotel seems to attract wrong sorts of people....definitely not the place to stay with family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Found this place on-line looking around, nothing fancy but worked for a nite..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy Metro ride to see the sights."
Completely satisfied, friendly office guy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel for a short stay"
The hotel has been renovated and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The air conditioners are new and work well. Overall the Dunes is a good hotel - it is a little pricey for what you get, but I guess that pricey is to be expected in the Hollywood area.Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed in this hotel for one night in August 2012. It's in a busy and noisy part of town, and I asked for a room away from the street. The room I got was not as far toward the back as I had hoped but the windows were double-pane and I had no trouble sleeping. They could do more to remove gum and stains from the stairway and parking lot, but other […] than that it was O.K. Had a nice breakfast in the restaurant next door.

"ROOM WAS FILTHY! ...absolutely DISGUSTING!"
Room appeared to be clean when I walked in (bed was made, towels folded etc). However, sheets had an excessive amount of hairs ALL OVER them, the table was covered in dust and hair, trash can had garbage in it, and the toilet was dirty. Overall, I was thoroughly disgusted. I will never stay there again!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rooms at Dunnes a ok in L.A"
Very basic and clean, we were using this just as a place to stop and rest our heads, the following morning we met the owner of the Dunnes who was a very charming and flattering man. It was a good location to acess all of the sights we wanted to see in our short trip in L.A Cheers for breakfast Donny Liza Minelli and Marylin Monroe!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing Fancy but Clean and Does the Job!"
The staff was courteous and polite. This hotel is perfect if you just want a room to crash at. Nothing fancy. Towels could use a little help. Overall, clean, safe, well lit and free parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall the stay was ok. Check in was fast and easy however come check out time I was advised we should have been given a remote control for the TV which is what they use to check you in... getting the hotel to call a cab seemed to be an inconvenience to the clerk. Room was clean and conveniently close to Hollywood Bowl and Hollywood Blvd.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed many times in the past but had stopped because of the condition of the rooms. They recently remodeled and did a great job, everything was done first class. The only negative that they can not fix is the noise from Sunset Blvd but I will still stay there again now that they have fixed up the rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My stay at the Dune on 13 June 2012"
It's on Sunset across from Home Depot and next to a strip mall with a coin laundry, 7/11 and Burger King. It's not in the most scenic part of town but it's close enough to everything happening in Hollywood or the nearby areas that it won't be such a chore to get there and it's very close to the 101 Freeway. There is free parking and free wifi,which […] is great. That alone at other hotel/motels could add as much as $30.00+ to your bill. Not being surprised by these additional charges is great because personally I get ticked off when I have to pay for parking & wifi on top of the room charge and not find out about these charges until I'm looking at the registration clerk face to face. The grounds were clean. The room was clean. The linen was clean and fresh. The television and refrigerator worked. The furniture is a bit worn but not to the point of just being trash. The area was quiet (despite the surroundings and being on Sunset Blvd, and (last but not least) the door locked. If you're on a budget, and only need a room to sleep in this is a clean and safe option. It could be a bit less expensive but I'm sure there is an additional cost for being centrally located and in Hollywood. Definitely, give a strong 3 of 5. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Location, but the place needs work."
The building was in a great location but not up to par to others in that area for the price. Room was ok, Id give it a 1 1/2 star. Wont stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is in 10 minutes of Universal Studio. that was excellent for us. I didn't like the smell in the room and I think that the price for the conditions of hotel is too high.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The motel-like property has undergone a makeover. The rooms have been gutted and updated with all new fixtures, power outlets, bathtubs, windows, tile in the bath on floor tile, floor coverings and air conditioners. The room was clean and quiet with no street noise evident. Parking was never a problem and complimentary. I would have liked a coffee maker […] in the room. I did not try the attached restaurant, but there are many close by on Sunset; and easy walk. If you need a new tool or two, Home Depot is right across the street. I will stay there again.

This hotel is great for a place to stay when visiting a local landmark. A place to lay your head for the night. The bathroom was clean and the hotel looks freshly painted and well maintained. It's not five start luxury but it does well for a quick overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I When we stayed in this Hotel, it smells like a newly painted room. We understand that they are doing some renovations which is good. It's clean and I suggest that they should change the color of the bed cover, somethings nice, clean and looks classy. I suggest plain color.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We felt safe and comfortable in this hotel. Good value for your money, rooms nicely remodeled. Freeway close to everything. Good parking. I would definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was fairly good, i was really worried about the area, but once i got there I felt perfectly fine leaving my car there. Both my friend and I had no problems with the hotel and the beds were AWESOME! But maybe a hangover helps that!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
