We drove from No. Calif all day and we found Best Western Plus Liberty Inn (and a gas station - we didn't think we would make it!) to stay the night. The room was huge and for a very reasonable price, under a 100 USD (try finding a similar room in LA). It was the perfect break to crash after a long day on the road to rest our weary heads. Got up the next day, well-rested, and stopped by Starbucks to kick-start our day on to LA.
This is a great stop if you want to get into LA from the morning instead of late at night after a long day on the I-5. Good service and clean rooms.
