Dunes-Noah, Manager at Dunes Inn - Wilshire, responded to this review

Winter, It is not pleasing to read such a review as this. We have been renovating the rooms and it doesn't make sense as you state no place to charge your phone, the rooms are very dusty with no refrigerators and the wi-fi very weak/not working. Did you address this with the front desk? I will ask TripAdvisor to advice... More

It is not noisy at night. The bed was comfortable and bedding was clean. There aren't any tea/coffee making facilities in room. The room is very simple but very clean and has a good size. The bathroom was renovated and it was clean. Since it's LA, a car is a must. Overall you get what you paid for.

Good location for locals and visitors- close to Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Down Town. And just blocks away from two places I really enjoy - LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and the La Brea Tar Pits. (and SAG National HQ). I met a couple staying here that were in for classes at UCLA, so they found it close... More

Everything you need, nothing you don't. Very friendly, accommodating and clean. Exposed brick, vintage feel, I guess that's not everybody's thing but a photographer would love it :) pool area is great, and open late! Also there's roof access!

Unfortunately we did not choose this Hotel. We booked it using United.com and they have listed DUNES INN as a 3 star hotel. This is a 2 star hotel located in Wilshire Los Angeles Area. The main thing here is that all of our belongings picked up a nasty stinky smell from the hotel. The price paid was way too... More

If you are looking for a no-frills hotel, then this is the place for you. The walk-in rate we received was $114 (tax included). This a cheap price considering the area where it is located. The room itself is outdated, but clean. There were lots of TV channels, but most of them were international; including Chinese, Korean, and Spanish. The... More

The room was expensive. the rooms are very old and dont go by the photos that they show on the internet. the staff were friendly and you get free parking. the pool was okay. cleanliness should have been better. Overall you can get a better hotel for your buck. I wont recommend this hotel

We need a hotel fast, as in within the hour due to a bump up in our trip plans. With a good price listed and a split on the reviews between good and bad, we took a chance. The lobby left a bit to be desired, looking run downed and out of date. It was nearly midnight when we arrived... More

The room was spacious and clean, with all necessities. We were not looking for anything fancy, but the pool is a nice plus. There was always someone at the front desk (although some staff members could have been more friendly). If you have a car the location is great, at the center from every point of interest (Hollywood, Universal Studios,... More
