Dunes Inn - Wilshire
Ranked #248 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Very good location. Very close to the Farmer's Market. I'd rather stay here again instead of Santa Monica. It is much more central and close to much more interesting places than Santa Monica. Staff was very gentle and helpful. We bought many things in the Amazon and had them delivered in many boxes to the hotel. Everything was stored and perfec when we arrived. We did not try the pool. We were three couples travelling together and they were nice enough to put us all in close rooms, one of them having a small kitchen that was very useful when we decided to buy beers and order a pizza instead of going out. Also the regular rooms were very big. It is very simple, but the price is very good. Would recommend.

The appeal of this place for me is it looks like a fifties advertisement for California. White stucco with pool, palm trees. It did not disappoint. The inn is no frills, clean, safe and secure. Comfortable beds. I couldn't get on the internet but there is access provided.

My friend and I went for a walk in search of food and enjoyed a wonderful time in a beautiful neighborhood. We returned to the hotel and ordered off the takeout menu provided for dinner. There are no restaurants nearby. I was concerned there was no coffee pot listed so I packed bottled coffee and brought pastries.

The management was friendly and efficient. We stored our bags while we went out for breakfast after checkout time. We did not have a car but there is free covered parking provided.

Just by phone the service was terrible bad. The person who answer, mr "Simon" was rude and unhelpfull.
He denied to answer my questions about a reschedule. He finished hang up on me and told me he had a customer waiting for him.
The do not recommend this hotel, if the service by phone is like this, imagine the rest.
look for other reviews, they all bad!
DO NOT BOOK w/ TAKE TOURS also, they provide the same discare for your necessities.

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.
