I stayed at this hotel in march of 2012 to run the los angeles marathon. My mother booked the hotel with her flight as a package, so it was a deal. She then booked me a room for one extra night after she left so that I could rest my legs after the race alone. It was a good price. We liked the area, as that is where I used to live so we chose the hotel both for the price and nostalgia.
The hotel itself is very basic, and unfortunately during our stay the pool was under construction. We where really looking forward to that feature. Other than that, it is a very basic, average hotel with all of your basic needs. The rooms, although are a little outdated, are very clean. The bed is very comfortable too. Or, perhaps I was so tired I didn't notice a difference.
My only complaint is that one of the reservations men over the phone was kind of rude when I called at a later date to inquire about something else involving the hotel.
The area is great, slap down in LA's Hancock Park, very close to miracle mile. There are a ton of great restaurants in miracle mile to choose from, as well some of the best shopping options.
If you need a place to stay at a reasonable price in a good area, I would choose Dunnes Inn Wilshire. Do not expect a Marriot, hilton or Ritz Carlton. This is not it. This is a 3 star hotel, with 5 star folded napkins. Seriously, you will get a kick out of the detail in which they fold the bathroom napkins! It was cute.
