For $130, I would expect some basics: A) Clean room - Carpet was really really dirty, plus splashes of ink everywhere! B) Decent towels and clean! - Towels were worn out, and found long hairs sticking to them. C) WiFi connection - worked some time, then slowed down and dropped off. Had to call the front desk to reset the... More

Had a reservation for 3 nights, ended up checking out after 1. The carpets were grossly sticky, the paint was peeling off the walls, large, ugly stains everywhere. Parking was extremely cramped. Many people staying there were outside kind of loitering about, probably because the rooms were so bad. Just dirty and gross!

This hotel is has filthy carpeting in the rooms, poor lighting, no outlets, no hook on back of bathroom door for nightclothes, . We were provided with only one key to the room, despite asking for a second. The free parking has scary narrow spaces, making it almost impossible to park the minvan we had rented to help my son...

We stayed here just for one night. The crowd is more bachelors and groups of mixed crowd. I would not suggest for a decent family or a couple. Far from all attractions though. Yes it's value for money paid. Parking is free which is the best thing in LA.

The one star I'm giving this place is for the elderly gentleman manning the front desk. He was very polite and did his best to expedite our registration. If the drive down Crenshaw didn't let you know you were in a questionable area, the ultra thick glass that separates you from the front desk should. If the aforementioned didn't clue... More

Crap, absolute crap! Seen nicer trailer parks. Service was awful, extremely unhelpful. International travelers boost local economics and this area sure needs it. Not a good move. Do not recommend this place at all. If I was staying alone, I would have gone elsewhere: I didn't feel safe at all.

When we walked in our room, we noticed black stains on our walls, the TV wouldn't turn on, and the lamps wouldn't either. Also the carpet looked very dirty. The closet doesn't even have a door to close it. It looks like someone ripped it out. We decided it wasn't worth our money, and we left the room, but the... More

I am sorry to hear about your experience at Dunes Inn - Wilshire. The wi-fi during a few days was down which was a result of an elaborate hardware failure. It took a few days to get the parts, re-program, in which we found an alternate solution to get it back up in the mean time. Unfortunately perhaps you've already... More
