We stayed here for 3 nights in February 2020 it was clean and comfortable with free parking for the hire car. Towels changed everday and bed made. Fridge provided as was free wifi and TV on the wall, the only thing we would have liked would have been a kettle as we do like a nice cup of tea! That said Starbucks is just up the street.
Friendly staff in reception who are happy to help. There was sadly quite a few homeless people on the streets, as there is anywhere, but we didn't have any issues as we were advised not to interact with them by the staff in reception, we followed this advice and were fine. Would recommend.

Stayed in Dunes Inn on a package deal would not have chosen this if had a choice, there isnot a cafe /restaurant no where to have a drink as advertised we where told it has closed now, no safe in room, no coffee or tea facilities but Edward on reception was amazingly helpful lent us a kettle we bought cups and tea and coffee got to say would expect this facility in 2022. But saying all this location was spot on for hollywould metro station, we also used local bus with Edward's help of direction, homeless is very much in every street so sad to see this. Room is basic but all you want is to put head down at end of day, We actually enjoyed our stay it does appear that L A has a massive number of homeless and budget hotels unless you are staying such as Hollywood boulevard then you see a price difference. Our main point we would like to make is Edward is the most helpful guy made our stay so much easier dissappointed we missed you when we had to leave a big Thankyou to you.

I recently visited LA from 8/13-8/20/21 and stayed at the Dunes Inn Sunset. I can honestly say that this motel exceeded my expectations. The room was exceptionally clean, the hot water was great and the A/C was terrific. This property is well kept and a maintained and centrally located in Hollywood walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. I would recommend Dunes Inn Sunset and will be returning.

The hotel told me I could get a room at noon. When I showed up at 11:30 the guy at the lobby told me "check-in is at 2pm".
I show him the message from the hotel telling me I could get a room at noon and he says "I didn't write that". I tried to explain that it didn't matter who wrote it, I have a wedding at 2pm and I need the room early to shower and prepare. He kept saying there was nothing he could do. I asked him to check if rooms were cleaned and he says "they'll let me know". Refused to do anything to fix the problem and canceled my reservation, leaving me homeless 1.5h before the wedding.

Great little motel with spacious rooms. The beds were comfortable and the water pressure good. There is no safe in the room and the diner attached to the motel is permanently closed. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and held our bags until check in as we arrived a few hours early.

There is a metro station (Hollywood/Western) 10 minute walk away, or the walk to the Hollywood Walk of Fame is about 25 minutes.

There are a lot of homeless people in the area and long rows of tents but none bothered us when we walked through at night.

There is a fantastic restaurant, Chris n Eddy's a few doors down that make the most amazing sliders.

This is a dated hotel, but it was clean and comfortable. The pool area looked terrific, but it was closed by the time we rolled in. Parking is a real challenge for larger vehicles. The person working at the desk moved his car to make it easy for me, which was kind after 15 minutes of trying to maneuver into a spot where I could open the door. Stairwell had an odor of pot, elevator was clean.

As soon as I walked in my room, it looked amazing. Everythng was clean the toliet was super clean and the sink had a nice little basket with shampoo, lotion, soap, and conditioner. There were plenty of towels that were folded so nicely. There was enough luggage space, drawers, and tables. There was also tissue paper, hair dyer, and 2 trash cans

Not quite sure about all those reviews. The motel is OK, in a not too good part of LA, although right near the Netflix offices and KTLA, just on the somewhat wrong side of the tracks. Yes, the staff, only one person basically, at a time, is friendly and there is a 'security' person. The old fashioned motel rooms are basic, beds OK, but old style airco barely worked and bathroom is very minimal at best. Wifi worked, but key cards kept malfunctioning on each of our rooms. For the right price and because of free parking (motel), maybe.

Room Tip: Don't get ground floor room, the rooms on floor above add to the noise level.

I stayed for 2 nights with my family in a twin room in the ground floor. Parking is free for hotel guests. The room is small. There was a strong smell of unpleasant cleansing material. Bathroom is dull and the sink is outside the bathroom. Cleanliness is not the best thing. A terrible noise of the field- cockroaches in the plants just outside the door of the room all night. TV noise and conversations of guests in the adjacent room could be heard loudly due to the thin walls. Finally, I encountered several weird guest with bizarre behavior that I didn't want my family to witness. Not recommended for family stay with younger or teenager kids

Intimidating location. They have a security guard and we felt our car was safe…but walking around at night unthinkable. During the day, just down to seven eleven or starbucks we were in alert mode. The restaurant next door is closed and mysterious. Otherwise, the room was just sufficient. Clean but a bit run down. The air conditioning worked but when it runs it’s noisy like an airplane motor. It was functional but would not stay again.
