Top tips for finding the perfect Southern California hotel

  • If you have an overnight layover at Los Angeles International Airport, book a suite at Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport, which is one block from the airport and provides free shuttle service and a fitness center.
  • Golfers who want to play with ocean views should select a resort in San Diego, near Torrey Pines Golf Course. The Lodge at Torrey Pines and Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines offer easy access to the course and luxurious suites.
  • Coachella is one of Southern California’s most famous music festivals. We recommend staying in Palm Springs or Cathedral City for a wider range of accommodations. It's also important to book your hotels as soon as you buy your ticket for the best price.
  • Located 2 hours outside of Los Angeles, Big Bear Lake is a popular nature getaway in Southern California for couples, friends, and families. Lagonita Lodge offers impressive views of the lake, apartments with kitchens, and a pool.
  • Keep in mind that LA traffic is the heaviest in Southern California, so it will take longer to travel from place to place. We recommend prioritizing the distance to attractions you want to see when picking a hotel.

  • Where should I stay if I want to surf in Southern California?

    There’s a reason Huntington Beach is known as “Surf City” and it’s the place to be to catch waves. We recommend staying in a budget hotel, guesthouse, or vacation rental off of Route 1 so you can easily get to the good surf spots. Ocean View Motel offers budget-friendly rooms with Wi-Fi, a refrigerator, and free on-site parking. Newport Chanel Inn is a cozier option with beach towels, boogie boards, and beach chairs provided for guests.

  • Where is the most romantic place to stay in Southern California?

    Located about 3 hours from Los Angeles, the area in and around Joshua Tree is possibly one of the most romantic destinations in the world. You can watch the stars without light pollution and experience the peacefulness of the desert sky at night. The best way to enjoy Joshua Tree is by staying in a boutique hotel or a private home. Sacred Sands offers outdoor bathtubs surrounded by nature, while Cayote Trail features a heated pool beneath the stars.

  • Which is the best beach town in Southern California?

    Malibu, Santa Monica, and Newport Beach are all beautiful, but there’s something special about Laguna Beach. Known for its quirky artists’ community, trendy cafes, and sandy shores, Laguna Beach offers a variety of upscale resorts, seaside inns, and private villas. Located along Route 1, Laguna Beach House is reminiscent of retro beach shacks but with the addition of luxury amenities. Surf and Sand Resort and Pacific Edge Oceanfront Hotel feature ocean views and a modern aesthetic.

  • Which resorts in Southern California are close to Disneyland and affordable?

    Located directly across from Disneyland’s main gates, Best Western Plus Park Place Inn - Mini Suites is one of the best affordable options in the Disney area. The King Rooms can house two people, while other options can sleep up to 4 adults on two beds. The hotel includes an outdoor swimming pool, 24-hour security, and a microwave in every room. Another option is Grand Legacy, which is located a 5-minute walk from the park and is a family favorite.
