My Husband & I stayed here in October for 5 nights. The only positive about this little motel is the location. I told my Husband not to expect to much too much but the reviews said it was clean and we didn't expect to be in our rooms to much any way BUT it was way worse than I was... More

Every year we can see small improvements being made to the rooms in this "special" motel. It was built in the '40s when each unit was made to be separate from the others. Most, but not all, of the bathrooms are small, but the rooms are spacious. We've stayed in a different room every visit, and all have been just... More

We stayed at the Wilshire Motel several times during a ten day trip to Los Angeles, as we moved in and out of the city. I called Julia to reserve our rooms and found her to be very friendly and flexible. Some nights we needed a single room and some nights a double. Our first night we had a single... More

I've stayed here with my wife several times over the past two years. What keeps us coming back? This throwback roadside motel is always clean and comfortable, and is priced well below most competitors in the area. Julia, who is super friendly, runs it with her dependable staff to keep it homey and efficient. Rooms are simple and parking requires... More

They recommended good places to eat and visit to relax after my 5000+ miles ride. I liked the place that much... More

She did not have my name or listing and I spoke live to her the previous day. When I produced the card she then found the reservation. We were there for a... More

Thank you so much for your feedback on your experience. We pride ourselves on being the best, affordable motel in West Los Angeles. While we are located in a highly accessible area between Westwood/UCLA and the Santa Monica beaches, it’s regrettable that our parking situation is challenging. And while it can require a bit of patience, it is in fact... More

We visit family about once a year in L.A., and prefer this to any other motel.Furnishings are simple, clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast works for us, and we enjoy the fresh fruit each morning.

This hotel is in one of the most walkable and trendy parts of Santa Monica. The motel consists of a few bungalows , very good for a small group or a family to stay in. They are like garden apartments and excellent for senior citizens who may have trouble with stairs. There is a ramp to drive in from the... More
