I've stayed in Whittier, the last 2 years, because it was centrally located, but not exactly 5 star accommodations.

I would not want to stay in Downey, so you want to be central to LA & Disneyland area's ?

Would staying in downtown L.A. be an option?

Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles is a bit pricey $200 a night
super cool upscale hotel with some major history

But on a budget just down the street is

it is a hostel/hotel and very nice on a budget, we had a downtown L.A.
history/bar walk that John-O organized last month & many of us stayed there
everyone whom did liked it, modern & clean, Cole's is right around the corner.

The Pacific Inn in Seal Beach is nice and close to the freeways. You can even walk to the beach. Its on the same street as a tiki apartment building and its a short drive to Don the Beachcomber.

Do you need to be somewhat close to Whittier and Downey? Just East of Whittier and Downey is Buena Park. It's the home of Knott's so there is lots of lodging and since the Halloween Haunt is over, it is off season so it would be inexpensive. And this would include Knott's own hotel.

Knott's Hotel

And you can go down Valley View to PCH to get to Don the Beachcomber's. Or East on Katella to get to Disneyland and Trader Sam's.

Thanks, again, King. I think Buena Park will be my base of operations. I'm looking at Besthost Inn, Day's Inn Buena Park & Baymont Inn Anaheim. They all look like decent values. Any input? I'm looking for clean, safe & economical. I don't need any amenities, just a place to sleep & shower.
Thanks,
Rick

I'm getting negative feedback on Buena Park. Is it a bad area?

Ramada Costa Mesa is looking like a possibility. How's that area?

Well Costa Mesa is my turf, I don't know about the hotel, but the area is nice
parking & food is not an issue & it is clean & safe in most of the whole city.

Check out the radisson suites hotel buena park on beach blvd.

It's like a smaller version of the place they have tiki oasis at.

Welp! Narrowed it down to Torrance & Costa Mesa. Expedia had a two day 25% of sale at the Ramada, Inn Costa Mesa, for some reason. Sixty-Eight bucks a night! Costa Mesa it is!
