If you are looking for budget hotels in LA you should look at hotels in the Downtown region, Hollywood and Santa Monica.
Unlike the downtown regions of other cities, Downtown LA isn’t the most happening place in the city. A lot of money had been put into this area and a number of cultural centers have been constructed. But tourists often skip this area and head to the Westside, Hollywood and the beaches. The area is characterized by earthquake proof high-rises and skyscrapers and is the business center of the city. It also has within its boundaries ethic communities like Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Chinatown and Los Feliz. Accommodation in Downtown LA is cheap but keep in mind that if you want to go to the beach or visit the studios you will have to travel a bit.
Hollywood is more an illusion than the actual industry itself with more and more movie studios leaving the neighborhood for Burbank, Westside, etc. The dereliction of the neighborhood however does not stop tourists from coming here. Today, a massive $1 billion regeneration project is underway and Hollywood is again gaining the popularity of its old days of glory. There are many sites to be visited here, the Walk of Fame, the Kodak Theatre, for instance. There are many new luxury hotels here but you will also find several budget hotels in the area.
If all you want to on your vacation is sun, surf and sand then you should find a hotel in Santa Monica. It is L. A’s premier beach community. This is also a great place to shop. Although there are many luxury hotels here, you will be able to find some discount hotels in the area.
