If you want to live in the heart of Hollywood and very close to Universal Studios, Dunes Inn, Sunset is a good and cheap alternative. The service in the lobby was excellent from arrival to departure. The beds were comfortable, but the rooms are very small - and the air condition was noisy. Then again - who comes to LA... More

I apologize for the size of our rooms - there is not much we can do about that - but, as you say, not many people visit... More

I didn't ever get to Dunes Inn - Sunset. Our booking had to be cancelled when our itinerary changed. I let them know we couldn't come and was assured that any money taken from my credit card would be refunded.

This hotel is fantastic for seeing the Hollywood sites, and upon arriving to this hotel were greeted with a level of customer service that we hadn't received since landing in LA. It wasn't just one of the staff members, all 3 that worked on the front desk were fantastic. WiFi worked great, rooms were clean and overall a great experience.... More

We stayed 2 nights at hte Dunes on Sunset this past weekend. The room with tax was $200 per nite. Guess that is what you would pay for an inexpensive hotel in Hollywood. The room was very old looking--no modern upgrades. There was a flat screen TV, 2 double beds, a decent bathroom and a small frig. There was no... More

I could not have done better than this, staying at Dunes was a highlight in my trip to USA.

First understand that this is a motel for around $115/night in Hollywood. With that understanding, one does not expect the Four Seasons. What you do get here is a decent sized, very clean room, with a refrigerator, good air conditioning, and extremely helpful staff. The wi-fi is also free but can sometimes can be a bit slow. The televisions are... More

Had to make a trip to Los Angeles and our usual spots were booked (Father's Day?), so we searched online and settled on the Dunes on Sunset, mainly because of location and comparative price. Any hotel in the general area of downtown/Westside is going to be overpriced--that's a given in LA. Add on anywhere from $75 to $300 for the... More

When we arrived and opened the door to our room, we saw stains on the walls and carpets. Followed by the extremely old TV that wouldn't work, and the lamps that wouldn't turn on. The closet, was missing the door. It looked as if someone had yanked it out. We left the room to look for some other vacant ones.... More
