I've been staying at this motel two nights a week, for over a year now, so I know it inside out.

Let's start with the less-than-ideal.
This place is not new, but efforts are being made to re-model the rooms.
Depending on the room, the internet can be good or unusable, but again, they will put up a new Wi-Fi in the coming weeks.
Parking is very tight, but I park my car somewhere else so I don't care.

The good part.
It's CHEAP. The CHEAPEST. You cannot beat the price for location. The next cheapest motel would be Best Western at over $160 / night. Almost double.
You're 10 min from the Santa Monica beaches, you are next to UCLA, 3 min to 405, 10 min to 10. It's just the perfect location.
It's also clean. Clean sheets, towels, bathroom. You have your TV, fridge and all the basics you would need.
The staff is excellent. Both Julia and Attila are friendly, honest, responsive and they will make sure you have everything you need. There's also a strong European flavor about them, which I personally enjoy a lot.

So now you know. Manage your expectations, don't expect hotel-like quality (because you're not paying for it), and you'll find great value in this place.

Room Tip: Call in advance, talk to Julia.

May not be for everyone but I love this little motel. It's not a Sheraton or Hilton but offers a great location at a great price with old values, including owners who live on property and who you will see a few times every day making sure everything is right for their guests. How many places will reboot their router to ensure you are having the best WiFi experience? Reminds me of places I stayed with my parents 40 years ago...will absolutely be back when coming to LA for business or pleasure.

This place is one of the least expensive in the vicinity of UCLA... already a plus. It is not a new place, which you can see from the locks on the doors, and the fact that the doors stick a bit. My bed, though still comfortable, was also a bit on the mushy side. (My daughters', however, were much firmer.) It is a very minor point, but parking is also somewhat tight, which means that it can take some maneuverings on the part of several guests to leave. However: the amenities in the room (microwave, TV, internet) were quite modern, the room was *immaculate*, there was a great variety of breakfast offerings, the coffee was great, the buildings were attractive and tidy, and our hostess was as gracious and friendly as can be. Given that the hotel is right on Wilshire, it was also surprisingly quiet. We would definitely stay here again, and can easily recommend this place to others.

My two week stay at the Wilshire Motel was much better than I expected. The people are extremely friendly and helpful, everything is clean and it really brings you a lot of comfort being such a cozy place! Breakfast is delicious and I am extremely grateful for the many packages the manager received in my behalf. Overall my stay couldn't have been better, I recommend this to anyone who is looking for the perfect place to stay in LA, nothing extremely fancy but definitely lacks nothing. Thanks for the warm welcome!
