    Alexandra, if that's your budget then I'd recommend staying at a hostel. Santa Monica and Venice have some good ones. In the USA, ''cheap motels'' are often unsafe, ESPECIALLY for women. They tend to be inhabited by vagrants and criminals, and drug use, prostitution, theft and other crimes are common. Hostels in the USA, on the other hand, tend to be safe and well-patrolled and have strict rules governing what their guests can and cannot do. Hostelling International Santa Monica has a good reputation, and it's in a great area as well. If you get homesick, Warszawa Restaurant is just a few blocks away :-)

      Hi, Janelle. Thank You for your reply. I'd never thought about it in this way if you hadn't told me. I guess you're right and I'll just not think about motels any more. I will definitely consider staying at hostels. Thank You so much again for your comment. Wish you all the best :-) Alexandra · (0 likelikes)

    Yes, I agree with Janelle. Hostels, or maybe a room via Airbnb. Probably the only place you will find a room that cheap is in the single room occupancy places in downtown Los Angeles. Very unsafe. At least one female tourist was murdered in one of them in the last couple of years. There are also parts of Hollywood with cheap motels, but most are used by prostitutes and addicts. Not safe.

    I don't see anything less than about $55/night, unless you find a hostel or couch surf
