My fiance and I stayed at the Dunes Inn on Sunset Boulevard for 3 nights. We were a little worried about the security of the room considering it is across the road from a home depot store and we noticed a lot of people lingering around the area when we checked in, but we had no issues. Upon checkin we were given our room keys and the tv remote (you had to return it upon check out). Once we got in the room we were pleasently suprised at the size given the price, big open style bathroom with the option of shower head or hand held, a fridge at no extra cost, and a comfy bed and clean, one thing it was missing was an alarm clock. The location is a little bit further than expected to get to the hot spots in Hollywood, but considering we were there for 3 nights and going to Downtown LA for the basketball for 2 of those nights we didnt really mind.
The only downfall we had was from the attitude from one of the people at the front desk. Checkout is not until 11am, and considering we were leaving for Australia that day we wanted to use all our time wisley as our flight was not until 10:45pm that same day so we wanted to be organised. At about 10:30am we got a call from the front desk asking us why we hadn't checked out yet, then we got told that checkout was at 11am which we already knew. My fiance had rang the front desk the previous day and asked if it was okay for us to store our luggage there and had explained that we had 4 big suitcases (LA was our last stop on a month trip to america) and our flight was later, they had told us that there would be no problem storing our bags there and were quite nice about it, until we checked out. We handed back our keys and the tv remote to the rude person (not the same person my fiance was talking to the previous day) and then asked if we could store our bags, he looked at us blankly and said "theres no room, we already have too many bags", we explained that we called the day earlier and they said it was fine. He replied with an attitude like it was too much hassle and asked us how long our bags would be there for, then proceeded to open the door and told us "well come on, im not going to carry your bags for you", we didnt expect him to anyway we were just waiting for him to tell us where to put them.
