Just a few blocks away from a major TV studio taping location! Very clean and comfortable rooms, quiet, & just a few blocks away from the 101 freeway so easy access. Wonderful restaurant adjoining the motel, all in all it was a fantastic experience. Will definitely stay there again. If you're lucky enough to meet the owner, your stay is... More

This place is clean, convenient, affordable, comfortable and friendly. Quality food and superb service at the adjoining eatery. Met the owners, John and wife Queenie, at breakfast. Very warm and funny.

A blast from the past with the two story, car parked in front of your room set up. It has been updated with new comfy beds, granite sink, new tub, modern tile shower and floors. Super clean with small refrigerator. Flat screen TV, but slow WiFi (which is in the process of being upgraded). My friend and I stayed there... More

But not by me. Arrived early to learn my reservation had been cancelled a week earlier. No record of how or who did it, and they were full house for that night. They placed us at another property 3 miles away which was not as convenient to the event we were attending. Will not trust these people to get it... More

I can only apologize for the inconvenience that this mix up caused you. A reservation can be cancelled a number of different ways but there is usually a paper trail so I can only assume that the cancellation was made over the phone. Human error can also be the reason in that whoever took the phone call cancelled your booking... More

Dunes Inn is in a good location for the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is walking distance away. Staff were very helpful, and organised our Hollywood Tour to pick us up from the hotel. Rooms were clean but quite small, and the TVs definitely need to be updated. Great location for Universal studios, which was 15 minutes drive away. We... More

Positiv: location Negative : wifi is simply not usable, have to get out of the room to have something. Air conditioner is like sleeping next to an Boeing engine, don't forget your earplug, fun facts: it doesn't blow fresh air... My advise for the price, go somewhere else. This is way overpriced, should be 1 star only.

I am pleased you liked our location, at least. Fortunately your other, negative comments, are in the minority and are somewhat exaggerated. Your Boeing engine comment, for example. THere is no such thing as a completely silent A/C but they are not THAT bad otherwise all the guests would be complaining. With regard to the "unusable" wi-fi, I admit there... More

This is essentially a motel in a very sketchy area that has good access to some popular areas of LA as long as you have a car. Got this hotel on hotwire.com and almost made me never use hotwire again. It was listed as a 3-star hotel, which really surprised my wife and I because there is no doubt that... More

I have, today, received your review of our Establishment and was surprised to see that it was over nine months since you were here which makes me wonder why you are writing now!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
