I went to Santa Monica on business for 3 weeks and had to make my own accommodations. I booked through the Travelodge website and got a room in the courtyard for $89/night. Clean room with fridge/microwave and 42 inch flat screen TV. Free parking was a plus as well as the continental breakfast. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased.
The only negatives; The walls were somewhat thin, I heard some mumbling and at random times I heard people walking above, but it wasn't enough to warrant a problem. I just needed a place to sleep, shower and fix a quick meal if need be. This room fit the bill more than adequately.
Santa Monica shopping etc. is only 2 miles away and the beach just a couple of blocks beyond that. Everything you could ever imagine to eat as well as 'mall type' shopping and movie theatres etc. The Santa Monica pier is worth a look, too. Beautiful sunset. The bike path running north and south from the pier is also worth a look. I had a blast riding north to Will Rogers State Park and south to Marina Del Rey. There are FREE parking garages in Santa Monica, make sure you search for them as most places are $3-$7 to park.
LA traffic stinks, but I never had a problem in the Santa Monica area. Going to different places in LA, esp. if you have to get on the freeway, just prepare to go slow. The entrance to the freeway is only a block away, so that is a plus I guess.
There are definitely 'nicer' places to stay in the area, but for the money, this is worth a look for sure.
