ON APARTMENTRATINGS.COM AuResident · 2016 - 2017 03/23/2017 Wilshire Villa is the best place to leave in LA! The different apartments are great for a good price, the rooftop is amazing... A good atmosphere thanks to Doreen, the manager of the building, who is an amazing person, kind and always here to help you, Jose who will always take care of your apartment and always have the smile! You really fell welcome living here. It's really a pleasant environment to leave in!
6/29/2018 My roommates and I loved living here. Doreen is the best manager ever! We would email her if we needed anything and she always responded within 24 hours. Doreen makes an effort to learn everyone's name which makes the experience living here even better. Jose who does some maintenance and cleans the building is the nicest man ever. Apparently he's been working here for 40 years and you can tell he really loves what he does. He also got to know our apartment by name and whenever we see him he always says hi and just brightens your day. After listening to some of my friends who talk about how crappy their building managers' are it makes us all feel so grateful that we had Doreen!
As far as the apartment it's nice to see that there's constant work being done because it's nice to know that Doreen is trying to keep the place up to date. The floor boards and work done isn't superb but it's nice to have new updates. The building itself is a little old but we didn't have any issues while living here. The rooftop is amazing it will really sell the place to you.
7/12/2017 Loved living here. Doreen was always on top of everything and if there was a complaint she worked tirelessly to get it done. Jose is incredibly sweet and the other maintenance guys are also very friendly and respond quickly to problems in your unit. I truly enjoyed living here for a year and am sad that I won't continue doing so. Highly recommended.
Local Guide · 28 reviews 2 years ago Great price for the area! The new manager is MUCH BETTER then the old one. Doreen took over a couple of years ago and things have improved greatly.
Maintenance is competently and quickly handled. The first line maintenance guy is really friendly and always up for a quick chat in the elevator lobby or hall when you see him working.
My fourth floor unit had a great view of down town and was really quiet. I think the building is primarily students from UCLA with the occasional older resident. I have never had an issue with anyone in the hall or lobby. Everyone is respectful and mostly quiet. (yeah, they are students, so there are occasional parties).
Parking is plentiful in the garage and most if not all of the spaces are "side by side" so you never have to move one car to get the other one out. Parking for guests can be a problem since the neighborhood is limited as to street parking. There are some public garages in the area though. Uber service is quick here. there are usually drivers hanging around the area waiting for a call. There are also usually B.I.R.D. scooters at the front door if you like to use those.
Over all my time here was an excellent experience. 2
