I was worried initially!!

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Jul 2019
I thought that staying in Hollywood would be glitz and glamor, it’s not. We stayed here for 3 days and I was initially worried by the location and general look of the motel. It was clean but a bit beige and old. I actually felt unsafe initially. The staff were very friendly. Look at it as a place that’s good for location, less than 1 mile from the walk of fame and other landmarks. It would benefit from coffee making facilities.

Room was shabby at best. Air con rattled like a bag of nails.
The hotel is situated opposite a Home Depot, next to a fuel station and a 7-11.
The "close proximity" to Hollywood Bvd takes you along some rough streets full of some of LAs many homeless. Wouldnt recommend families or ladies to walk anywhere around here after dark!
The "restaurant " next door serves ok food, but we tried there for breakfast, only to be ignored for 30 mins while the local barflys took up all the staffs time. We walked out and found a Dennys!
To be frank, avoid this area completely if you can.....even Hollywood Bvd has lost its shine and is dirty and full of chancers trying to sell you tours etc

I'm really glad we chose to stay here. The rooms are pretty basic but clean and the bed in our room was extremely comfortable. The air conditioning was more than adequate and the wifi was excellent. The staff were extremely friendly and one day my husband and I were going to Santa Monica and the staff gave us a ride for free! The on site restaurant is lovely and very reasonably priced, again with great staff and service.
The location is awesome, a short walk from Hollywood Blvd. I would definitely stay here again.

I selected Dunes Inn Sunset because the ratings weren’t bad and the location was perfect for our needs. The external view of the hotel does not give it any justice. While it is a dated hotel and does not have any modern attributes, we felt very comfortable. The check-in process was simple and the rep was professional. It is a very small check-in area, so we did have to wait in a line before we could get checked in; however, the check-in process itself was straight to the point.

The room was decent and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was aesthetically pleasing, and the shower had great pressure and maintained its temperature.

The room looked clean enough, and we did not have any issues until the night before we checked out we saw a bug on one of the pillows. Dunes is also on a main street so it was not very quiet, but it did not hamper our stay there.

The location is absolutely perfect for moving around within the Hollywood area, and there is a parking lot with free parking. It is within a couple minutes drive to Wall of Fame, Chinese theater, Hollywood Boulevard, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Dolby Theater, and lots of other activities.

If you are looking for a five star type of hotel, you would not enjoy staying at Dunes; however, if you have an open mind and willing to accept it for what it offers, you should have an enjoyable stay.

It's a Motel on a nothing to look at street, namely Sunset Blvd. It feels a bit unsafe but its just the feeling I got. When you check in the staff are behind glass! There is a hair dryer, shampoo and body lotion and some soap. The towel were average. NO tea/coffee, good size TV, good shower, wifi and good bed comfort. Very basic feeling with no facilities or food. You can hear toilets flushing and road noise but I was right near the office. No lasting impressions here i'm afraid. I kind of felt if someone banged on the door I would be terrified, but again probably safe?

Wanted a place to stay for one night as had tix to the Greek Theater. This was ideally located and reasonably priced so took a chance.
Was pleasantly surprised as the room exceeded expectations. Free off-street parking right outside your room is a breeze. Obviously been refurbished not too long ago, was comfortable and very clean. Beds comfy, bathroom good, wi-fi works fine, good size fridge that actually keeps things cold. Was on ground floor and was not bothered by road noise. Could hear upstairs guests leaving but was thankfully brief.
Dreams cafe on the premises was the perfect place to grab a bite to eat without having to venture out.
Will stay here again.
No complaints although the neighborhood is not somewhere you'd want to roam around at night.
