Subject: Re: Los Angeles motels

The Dunes is not in a very desireable area, although i think it's safe, it's not in a great part of town, and you might not think it's safe. Hollywood, which is where it is, generally is not safe. Staying in the San Fernando Valley you will find motels cheaper and the areas nicer and safer. Look up They offer coupons you print out, The Hotel Carmel in Santa Monica is a good deal. Look up hotels and motels in Los ANgeles in the following areas: Santa Monica, West Los Angeles (I think there's a Travelodge in the 10700 block of Santa MOnica Blvd. that would be good area and not too expensive), the following areas are in the San Fernando Valley: Sherman Oaks, Studio City, North Hollywood, you want to be on Ventura Blvd., or perhaps RIverside Blvd. Let me know privately (santrav@....) if you are having trouble finding something and I'll try and look some up for you.
