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

This is the third year we have stayed here during the Thanksgiving week. I don't think there is a thing that owner Julia wouldn't do to make our stay a good one. Yes, the units were built in 1930, but the beds are comfortable, linens are always clean, the breakfast offerings are fresh and varied. Management makes improvements every year,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It was affordable and a nice place to stay overall. It was better than a hotel room. We shared a cottage with my parents and it was spacious and comfortable. We all really enjoyed our time here.

This is an old, quaint and charming motel. Those are usually code words for run-down and shabby. But not here. It is quaint and charming in the true sense of those words. Looks like it was built in the '20s or '30s and has been kept up (not renovated) very nicely. Carpets could use a good cleaning but everything else... More

If you are a picky traveler and want everything to be perfect, this is not the place for you. However, if you are flexible and are concerned about cost, this is a good value, especially for where it is. Close to Santa Monica, in a very old structure, this motel is perfect for an inexpensive in an otherwise very expensive... More

Bringing a car to LA, it was important that we find a place with parking. After looking at reviews here on TA, I was convinced that the Wilshire Motel was a good alternative. I was not disappointed! The rooms are basic, but clean, and have everything you need for a short stay. Breakfast is simple, but does the trick. I... More

This place is very comfortable and each room looks different and makes you feel very much at home. The Manager, Mrs. Julia Kovacs, is very caring and friendly. She woke me up at 7 AM when... More
