We are a family of five adults who were staying in LA for a couple of days following a cruise. I found this little gem on trip advisor and, based on the positive reviews, decided to give it a try. I knew it would be a far cry from a cruise ship, but we didn't plan on spending much time... More

My husband and I went to LA for a day and called a few places around the area which would be close to Santa Monica Pier and West Hollywood and this place was in the center of it all. We got lucky and the last cottage left. The rooms were nice nothing fancy, but they were good enough. I have... More

Tucked along a very busy street, this cozy motel is like a little oasis. Nothing fancy just a nice place to spend the night. The little rancho style (individual/separate units) gives this place character and not cookie cutter motel feeling. Place was well kept.

Every year we can see small improvements being made to the rooms in this "special" motel. It was built in the '40s when each unit was made to be separate from the others. Most, but not all, of the bathrooms are small, but the rooms are spacious. We've stayed in a different room every visit, and all have been just... More

We stayed at the Wilshire Motel several times during a ten day trip to Los Angeles, as we moved in and out of the city. I called Julia to reserve our rooms and found her to be very friendly and flexible. Some nights we needed a single room and some nights a double. Our first night we had a single... More

I've stayed here with my wife several times over the past two years. What keeps us coming back? This throwback roadside motel is always clean and comfortable, and is priced well below most competitors in the area. Julia, who is super friendly, runs it with her dependable staff to keep it homey and efficient. Rooms are simple and parking requires... More
