I'm in the early stages of planning a possible trip in March for 8 to 10 nights. I don't have a great deal of money so have been looking at budget accommodation as long as its reasonably near a metrorail stop. I won't be using a car and I realise some of the distances are long though not too bothered about commutting as I generally start early on holiday. I also feel I have enough street smarts in areas a bit sketchy as long as they aren't desperate, I won't be lingering though could be back late at night.
The following hotels are the sort of places I want but getting mixed reviews about area safety, I wonder if anyone that lives nearby could be more specific about where these hotels are :
Tower Motel Long Beach
Golden West Manor Motel
Travelodge Burbank Glendale
