I’m currently staying in my 4th hotel in about a month. First- the Radisson at LAX when my flight to Vegas got cancelled; Second- the Courtyard Marriott in Clackamas when my mom and I couldn’t get her car up the hill to her house after I finally made it to Portland; Third- the Hilton Garden Inn in Calabasas when we made it to Calabasas at 3:30am after driving since about noon. All of these hotels were very nice, spacious and clean– a very refreshing change from my flat in London.
But now here I am at the “Good Night Inn” which is much more affordable than those other hotels (although this time I’m not actually paying), but it’s your typical affordable/right off the highway hotel. Very small, bare minimum, the kind of motel that usually makes me wonder about the cleanliness although it is actually very clean. I got spoiled there for a little bit with those other hotels. I forgot what “under $100/night” hotels are like 😉
On the bright side, if anyone wants to come down for my graduation, this hotel is a lot cheaper than other malibu-area hotels! Right now the rate is $64+tax/night. Memorial Day weekend (which happens to be the weekend of my graduation) it is $78+tax which comes out to $84/night. That’s the rate for the room with two queens which I imagine must be bigger than the room I’m in (one queen). It’s right around the corner from my apartment, and just about an 8 mile drive through the canyon to Pepperdine’s campus 🙂
