The Wilshire Crest is a lovely break from the "scene" that is LA. It is wonderfully located and incredibly convenient. They also offer extras like continental breakfast and permits for street parking without the constant nickel and dime-ing that occurs so frequently in LA. The staff was friendly and attentive. While the hotel is not fancy, it is clean, updated and practical. We will look forward to staying there again. Thank you all so much.

Pros are its location in a quiet area, not a hotel zone, and reasonable rates. Cons are the sparse and austere amenities, and noise levels between rooms. We had a hard time sleeping due to a TV on in a room below us. No irons or hair dryers in the room but available by request from the front desk. Beds are rock hard. Breakfast was mostly a few white carbs and a pitcher of OJ. It was disturbing to have bathroom style key locks on the entry doors. Someone could have easily entered with a bobby pin or credit card. The staff didn't know anything about restaurant recommendations or places to visit nearby. There is one computer in the lounge but requires payment for use. Street parking only, no lot. Could be a knock out place with a facility update, more creature comforts like better mattresses and pillows, sound proofing, and some hotel customer service training and attention.

Clean, quiet, friendly, affordable. The staff is friendly without being overbearing. The facility is nice without being pompous. The breakfast is a tick better than your standard continental fare. Even the guests were quite nice. I will recommend this and stay here again without hesitation.

I couldn't be happier with my stay st the Wilshire Crest Inn. I needed a reasonably priced hotel in a convient part of Los Angeles and I got exactly what I asked for. Walking distance to "The Grove," a stunning outdoor mall with a wide selection of upscale shops. Whole Foods is less then a mile away. There's a mini-mall with Subway, Fish Tacos, Falafel, Liquor Store...

The beds are firm. I like a firm bed. I had a flatscreen tv with more channels than I could count. Spacious. Great service. I needed to print documents out and they were totally accommodating. Wireless internet.

I'm very happy to give the this hotel a positive review because I know how hard it is to find the right place for the right price. For Los Angeles, this is it. Stay at the Wilshire Crest Inn!

I searched far and wide and could not find a reasonably priced hotel in LA with all of the amenities that The Wilshire Crest Hotel has to offer.

Here's why the Wilshire Crest Hotel works for me:

-large, clean rooms,
-comfortable lobby with free internet, computer, and outside relaxing areas
-the most central neighborhood, close to everything and a short walk to the famous Farmer's Market and The Grove
-free breakfast included
-free parking permit included
-great customer service from the staff
-an extremely reasonable price

Need I say more?
I love this place.
