Many guests ask us about the cheapest way to get to Las Vegas or San Francisco from LA. If you wont have a rental car, we recommend looking into MegaBus. Megabus provides long distance bus transportation from Union Station in Downtown LA to San Francisco or Las Vegas for as low as $7 per person including luggage storage and free Wi-Fi.
Renting a car is the best to get around in Los Angeles. LA's public transportation is not as developed as many major cities from around the world. Given that LA covers such a large geographic area, a car allows you to experience a lot more instead of spending wasted hours on bus/train connections.
Going to a sporting event or concert at one of the many nearby venues is always a fun way to have a unique experience during your trip. The best and number 1 option in purchasing tickets is through Ticketmaster. We also have Lakers tickets available when you book direct through our website. Look for the NBA Lakers Package add on when booking a stay between October - April.
Griffith Park Observatory provides the best view of the "City of Angels". The great thing is that it is free. Besides the beach, it is also a great place snap some photos during sunset. Also on site is a small museum and planetarium show (entry fee). Check out the pics below.....
WORLD TAXI METER gives you a pretty close estimate of taxi costs. Perfect for those who want to find out how much a specific trip might cost. Whether you are without a rental car or want to taxi back after a night at a bar or club this site will be useful. The site estimates about a $55 fare from LAX International Airport to Jerry's Motel or $10.89 from Union Station to Jerry's Motel.
BRITE SPOT is located in Echo Park just a short 5 minute drive from our property. In the mood for fluffy old fashioned pancakes, hash browns and sausage?! Head down to this hip diner and have a feast. Many of guests love this place and eat there every morning during their stay.
