The Wilshire Motel is just that, a MOtel. It's a delightful throwback to the days of Route 66 and "seeing the USA in your Chevrolet," right down to the "Sanitized for Your Protection" paper tape over the toilet seat. Rooms are small and older, and a little quirky, but that's part of the charm. They are clean and quiet, and...

It is a budget accommodation and it was perfect considering how expensive hotels can be in this area.. We stayed there and it was awesome. The reason we mainly chose it for was its location. It is very suitably located. It is easily accessible from the city. We went to the Santa Monica Pier which was very near and it...

I needed to visit the Hungarian Consulate on Wilshire Blvd early in the morning. Knowing the rush hour traffic in LA, I was looking for a decent place to stay in the area. The closest hotels are in Santa Monica or Beverly Hills. Prices start in the 200s. Even a Best Western was $160+tax next to the 405. Then I...

Found this motel via Tripadvisor. We spent 2 weeks at Wilshire Motel while I was undergoing medical treatment at UCLA Hospital in Santa Monica. It's a good place to stay, particularly if you are relatively independent. Rooms are clean, comfortable, breakfast is good. Our bed could have been a bit firmer, but then again we both have back problems and...

Owner used to play professional soccer player. Nice couple. Excellent stay. Great value for L.A. Walked away with their key and expected a draconian fee but they were very understanding. Nice to have a change from the generic motels.

I have stayed here three times in the last 6 months and have been pleased. The owner has been extremely helpful and accommodating. Excellent location, quiet and clean. An excellent bargain considering the location and even includes a really nice breakfast spread. Will return again!

This place has amazing potential to really be great! It is very outdated, walls/windows are very thin and heat is very outdated. The carpet is dingy shag and the bedding is outdated. There is a "skylight" in the shower of the 2 bedroom cottage that I was in. Having said all that, it is super convenient, staff is very friendly,...

I have been here for quite sometime and has truly been a wonderful stay. The motel is located at a prime location and is close to all that you would need in terms of dining, light shopping and even a little bit of entertainment. Ques bar is a great place to hangout, with friends, and is just a couple of...

I stayed at the Wilshire Motel for more than a month when I had to travel to LA in July. The place is truly a family friendly place. It is close to everything. The Santa Monica 3rd Street promenade, which is the retail, entertainment, dining, commercial and residential center, all located just blocks from the motel. The motel is also...
