I'm wondering what is a good city to stay in. I want to be close to the beach but also somewhere in the middle. I'm looking at West Los Angeles area like West Hollywood, Culver City, Beverly Hills areas. I was originally thinking of Santa Monica but the motels I were looking into I wasn't getting positive feedback from people. Where is a safe place to stay? I guess that's my main concern. And, obviously I'm on a budget. A room between60-70 or so a night would be great! Thanks.
