“Not that great...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2007

Well, I needed a place to stay in Los Angeles for a night. (I live in LA but needed a place to sleep near my office for a night). This place was REALLY close to my office. They have another location on Sunset that I drive by all the time. So I gave it a show. $80 something for the night. I have to say, the man behind the desk was HORRIBLE! He was behind a 3 inch thick bullet proof glass. Half the time, you couldnt hear a word he said. And he really wasnt happy working there (And I think he must be the owner) He has NO CLUE as to what he was doing. He made numerous errors and even tried to charge me for 2 nights when I was only staying one (He said I told him2 ) It was rough . A process that should have taken 10 minutes, ended up taking 35 minutes. The rooms were ok. Clean enough for the money. My advise, spend alittle more money and stay somewhere else... The are isnt great. Not very safe at night.

A hundred dollars doesn't buy very much in accomodations in Los Angeles so the Dunes Wilshire is not a bad deal. The room was clean, everything worked and the staff was helpful. Surprisingly, although the motel is on a major thoroughfare, we were not at all bothered by street noises. The Dunes is located just a short drive from many major attractions. This part of Wilshire seems to be safe but you need to drive or take a bus to restaurants or shops. There is ample parking, a rarity in LA.

  • Liked — location and economy
  • Disliked — very basic, no restaurants within walking distance
  • Stayed March 2007, traveled as a couple
