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

The rooms are very clean and the beds are comforatble. A recent refurbishment has made this place even better. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and provide all information you... More

Good localization. Rooms for four people, clean, good beds and shower. Unfortunately they dont have breakfast but there is places to have it near to the hotel. Wifi service and cool swimming pool. Good choice to stay in Los Angeles. Good trip.

It took us over 2 hours to get checked in. One hour waiting for the gentleman at the desk to help the guests before us, and at least an hour for us. He was very rude; the two times he stopped helping the people in front of him to answer the phone, he was very aggressive to the person on... More
