Budget hotels may be what your wallet demands, but this doesn’t mean you don’t have standards. Just as affordable rooms are primarily for sleeping, they should also be a place where you can hang out and watch a little television. In California, there are plenty of affordable boutique hotel options near urban centers. Following are a few for you to choose from when planning your Sunshine State getaway.
EZ 8 Motel San Jose II
If you are looking for an affordable room in the Santa Clara area, the EZ 8 Motel San Jose II offers a budget accommodations in Silicon Valley. This motel is busy during the week and that’s when prices are higher to stay in this entrepreneurial neighborhood, so it is less expensive to book a weekend stay here. You can expect clean beds, complimentary coffee and free parking. Unfortunately, WiFi is not free.
Budget Inn South Lake Tahoe
The Budget Inn South Lake Tahoe is a small affordable property with 28 rooms in the Sierra Nevada Mountains within three miles of the Heavenly Ski Resort and the Bijou Golf Course. It is also less than two miles from the Nevada state line, so if casinos are tempting to you, then getting to them from this Inn is quite easy. A heated guest room with a clean bed, WiFi, cable TV, and a microwave are standard amenities at this budget-friendly property.
Americas Best Value Inn-Casino Center Lake Tahoe
In California, it is common even for the budget Lake Tahoe properties to have a private beach area, a ski pass sales point, ski storage space, and bike rental space. Americas Best Value Inn-Casino Center Lake Tahoe has all of these. This is an ideal hotel for groups or families with Heavenly Ski Resort nearby and the Reno Tahoe Airport just a stone’s throw from the property. Free on-site parking, continental breakfast, and coffee in the lobby come with the price of a standard room, and some even feature a balcony.
The downtown Los Angeles motel Nite Inn is near the Hollywood and Vine intersection in Hollywood, three miles south of Universal City. Not only is a complimentary breakfast available to guests of this inn, but WiFi is also free in the motel lobby. The rooms are standard with either two queen beds or two double beds, and the motel also has larger suites available.
The Domain Hotel
Like the EZ8 Motel San Jose II, The Domain Hotel is close to San José Airport, Santa Clara University and the headquarters of Apple and Google. As a result, pretty much anything you might want in addition to affordable lodging is within easy reach. Think of this option as an upscale affordable California boutique hotel, as its prices are measurably higher than those above. There is free underground parking, a hotel shuttle, fitness center and a pool here. Generally speaking, the Domain Hotel offers contemporary sleek, air beds, flat-screen TVs, and granite vanities.
