Easy to access; hotel had secure parking for no additional charge. Hotel has an old Hollywood 60's vibe.

We booked a room at the Dunes Inn. When we arrived, a friendly front desk agent welcomed us and arranged all the administration with a smile. We went to the room with a view on the pool but when we entered, none of us felt like staying any longer than necessary. In fact: we just got out our notebook and started searching for a different place to stay. As we entered the room, we noticed a smell as like someone had taken a dump on the carpet, the floor was squeeky, very thin walls and given that it's location is in an area of which locals say "don't go on foot in that area, it's not safe" does not add to the feeling of comfort. We left immediately and asked for a checkout + cancellation for the whole stay of 4 nights. Again the front clerk was very friendly and made the arrangements, so a 2/3 score goes to service for this.

This is a very basic, slightly run-down hotel, yet I always choose to stay there when I'm working in LA. It's a 50's-era style "motor court" with a very nice little pool area. The location is terrific; you can walk through the beautiful Hancock Park neighborhood to Larchmont Village, which is full of great restaurants and shops; everything you need. (I particularly recommend the Larchmont Bungalow for breakfast!) The hotel has free, safe parking, which is a perk in LA., and free wi-fi. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Several times I've flown in on a red-eye and they let me check in very early and catch some sleep. They didn't have to do that, (most hotels wouldn't) but it was greatly appreciated. Finally, I was staying here after the Northridge earthquake and experienced several aftershocks and the little Dunes Inn was so solid that I barely woke. I will continue to stay here. Not fancy at all, but reliable, quiet and very affordable!

Room Tip: Go for the rooms on the second floor, away from Wilshire.

Most of the reviews written about this hotel are true. It is an okay hotel but not the best or even "good". You get the basics, and it is close to downtown and Hollywood. The room has a certain "old smell" and the bathroom seems like it was redone recently. The room and sheets seem to be out of date. It's true what they say, you get what you pay for.

What a shame this hotel is not looked after, as it is in a good location! I will repeat other reviewers....funny smell in room and the carpet would have been nice when it was new!! along time ago!! Keep your shoes on! The cleaner keeps the bathrooms spotless however it must be a different cleaner for the bedrooms!! Dust is quite thick on the carpet around the edges and under the bed and tables!! bare wire for telephone lead also under bed. Thick dust clogging up aircon. Horrible marks on back of curtains and same mark inside lamps with thick dust on light bulbs. They have a stand for your case which has elastic straps across to support it however two were broken, they should just take it away it is useless!! Like everyone else we could hear people upstairs although other than that we didnt hear anything. I wouldn't stay or recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

Having prebooked a room we were disgusted with what we were given: dark and smelly (couldn't work out the unusual but horrible smell); the air conditioning didn't work and was covered with dust. The second room they gave us was only better by degrees (still smelly). The air conditioning worked but not effectively and it was really loud and also dusty. The door lock had been prised. We politely asked twice for a phone line out as our mobiles didn't work, but each time we were asked to wait 15-20 minutes. Eventually we cut our losses and left and went to a hotel we had passed in our taxi that had looked good.

Room Tip: Never go by an online picture - the lighting and touch ups may disguise the harsh reality. Don'...
