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

Our accommodation was a spacious clean and comfortable cottage which had 1 bedroom with a queen bed and a living room with two beds, 1 bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, microwave, electric kettle and crockery. Both the rooms had TVs. It had loads of eating places... More

I motorcycled for 3 weeks across the states in March and pre booked the Wilshire a few days before i arrived in L.A I liked both Atilla and Julia (very helpful and friendly) from the moment i roared in. They recommended good places to eat and visit to relax after my 5000+ miles ride. I liked the place that much... More

Pulled into the parking lot to first see other guests trying to navigate very bad parking spots. Went to check in and manager could not find the reservation. 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.

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.
