i'd like to get some advices about accomodation in los angeles.
i and my boy friend won't rent a car, so we mainly get around by bus or subway !
the frist day, we booked a room at coral sand hotel which is budget hotel in hollywood.
the second day, we'd like to spend our time at santa monica or venice beach area.
and we will flght to lasvegas next morning.
could you recommand some good and buget hotel that has easy excess to both airport and santa monia area by bus?
please get me some ideas !
You need to find something on or close to Sepulveda Blvd--or if you don't mind spending a bit more, something in Santa Monica on Santa Monica Blvd.
I suggest something near Marina del Rey or Venice Beach or in Santa Monica. Stay out of Culver City, Hawthorne, El Segundo and especially stay out of Inglewood main area.
I suggest the following two hotels--Venice Beach Suites and Hotel (fairly reasonable for being pretty much right at the beach--but it is a little bit off the bus routes)--or this fairly upscale area)--around $139/night or the Marina del Rey Hotel--around $135/night. If you are looking for cheaper than this, the two I suggest you try are the Comfort Inn and Suites at LAX (around $85/night), or cheaper yet, the Value Inn Worldwide LAX--which is just barely in Inglewood, but is $65 per night.
P.S. I've got to tell you now--Los Angeles without a car is a major nightmare. Spending an extra $35-40 per day or so on a rental is well worth the cost versus the headaches you will go through--and the extra costs incurred--if you don't have a car. I lived in LA for over 25 years and I would never go back there if I had to get around by public transportation--even if it was only for 1 day.

Ditto above regarding transportation... LA is one of the worst major cities anywhere to try and function without your own transport, especially for a tourist.

Marina Del Rey is amazing. You made the right choice. Enjoy your vacation
