1 day in LA. Should we stay in Santa Monica or Hollywood...

Hi everybody,

We are planning a trip from SF to LA. We will break journey along the way, either Pismo Beach, Morro Bay etc .Then spend 1 night to do LA and then head to Anaheim for the rest of the Spring Break for Disneyland.

I can't decide to stay either in Santa Monica or Hollywood.

We found a wonderful hotel in Holllywood called the Orchid Suite. But I am not sure whether it is practical to stay there if we want to visit Santa Monica, Hollywood, Venice beach within a day.

We are a family of 5 traveling with 3 kids age 2, 4, 6. Out hotel budget is <$100/n.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A friend of mine just got back from Santa Monica and highly recommended the Sea Shore Motel.
