“Wilshire Crest - Great Stay”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

My family and I had a very enjoyable stay --- the room was well appointed, and very reasonably priced. Great location - about 5 minutes from Farmers Market/Grove, 10 minutes from Graumanns, and 20 minutes from Burbank... nice area, would definitely stay again!

Although I am an LA resident, I got the chance to stay at the Wilshire Crest when a friend came into town last week. It's a pretty simple, affordable place in an otherwise expensive town. Beverly Hills adjacent, the hotel is convenient to LACMA, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood.

The bed was very comfortable, and the room was large. And even though it overlooked the street, the room was quiet night. The bathroom wasn't much to speak of, though, nor was the furniture. My friend and I decided it looks like a hotel/motel on a road stop somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

A free, included buffet breakfast had all the staples that one needs in the morning: coffee, cereal, yogurt, fruit, and more. And it was served until 10 AM. A little patio on the street out front is a nice place to eat, smoke, or watch the cars go by.

The worst thing is that the hotel does not come with parking. I had to put my car in the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot across the street with the instruction that it had to be moved before eight in the morning. The penalty for not moving it: the car would be towed. That's generally a dealbreaker for me; a hotel needs parking.

Stay here if you want a clean, simple place to rest your head but not a hotel experience to write home about.

Came to LA for a wedding. We stayed here with rest of family. It was walkable to so many things. The morning breakfast was great. Lots of choices. Rooms were clean and quiet. Staff was always friendly and helpful. It was easy to find parking. It could not have been a better stay!

This is not a fancy hotel, but it is a great value for what you get. The rooms are clean and surprisingly spacious. We had a large bedroom with a small table and chairs. There was a second sink just outside the bathroom. We also had a fridge. The beds were quite comfortable. There is a very basic (and kosher) continental breakfast served every morning. The location is perfect for Cedars Sinai, Beverly Hills, and other locations around Los Angeles. Parking is on the street and you need to get a permit from the front desk.

I was impressed by the staff who run this hotel. I arrived last November jet lagged to my eyeballs after a very long flight and I was checked into my room early and offered a buffet breakfast on arrival which I was so grateful for. This is a basic, good value hotel in close to LACMA and I was satisfied with my stay.

Hi Guys -- Wasn't really sure what to expect with the Wilshire Crest. But we were pleasantly surprised. The pictures make the rooms look smaller than they are. The hotel and rooms are very clean and comfy. You really feel at home here. The bed and pillows were SOOOOO comfortable!

I did notice the recommendation to ask for a room in the back of the building versus the side where the street noise is. That was a HUGE help. The two sides of the building seem like night and day.

The guys who own/run the place are very kind and helpful. The pass for parking on the street was super helpful. We got there early enough to get a place right in front and didn't move our car for 2 days! Loved that we were within walking distance to so much. There is an amazing coffee shop down the block toward the busy intersection -- Coffee Roastery or something like that. Popular lunch spot as well.

If you happen to be vegetarian, you must high tail it over to Real Foods Daily on La Cienega where you will swoon with every bite. It's a little bit of a walk, but not bad. Good exercise. :)

Thanks, Wilshire Crest. If we are ever in the area again, we will absolutely stay here again -- highly recommend this hotel! :)

I stayed at this hotel while on business in Los Angeles. The reception was friendly and efficient. The rooms are large, particularly in consideration of the price. The bed is comfortable, and the bathroom is clean and roomy. As the area is a mix of residential and commerical, it is relatively quiet at night. Breakfast is complementary with plenty to eat. All in all, great value for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner room on the second floor.
