Carol,

Maybe someone in California can give you more help, but I've been searching for an inexpensive motel in LA or nearby for my son, so I'll give it a try. What I found was a Comfort Inn a couple of blocks from Disneyland, which is in Anaheim (Orange County). I'd feel safer for him to stay there than in LA, and it's not a long drive from Orange County to LA. As for price, at the time -- a couple of weeks ago -- the price was only $69.00, but that was for April. The price range is $69.00 to $119, depending on the date, I imagine.

I found the motel by going through http://www.frommers.com. Click on Lodging.... there's a logo that says Places to Stay. When I clicked on Los Angeles Area, Orange County was one of the choices. You'll also find a map that shows how close Anaheim is to LA. Good luck! I'll be watching for the responses you get :-)
