Are there any hotel/motel near USC?

<p>I want to visit USC with my mother during the spring break. (or after) But USC will not offer any housing for us. Do you know if there is a(n) motel/hotel near USC?</p>

<p>There is a motel down the street from USC. You could also stay in the Radisson.</p>

<p>You will want to stay in downtown LA. There are all the brand name hotels like Marriott, Hilton, etc. They may be a little expensive. If you want to stay some place cheaper check hotels in Glendale. It would be about a 20 mins drive from the campus.</p>

<p>The Radisson hotel is across the street</p>

<p>Radisson would be a good choice because of it's proximity to the campus</p>

<p>Is Radisson expensive?</p>

<p>Here is the link to the hotel: Los</a> Angeles Hotels - Radisson Hotel Midtown Los Angeles at USC</p>

<p>During my visit to USC, I stayed Vagabond Inn. It's a motel located about 3 blocks from the USC campus. I think it was about $110/night.</p>

<p>There's also a very nice Bed & Breakfast near USC (walking distance & you can park there at no extra charge). You can book directly on her website. If the link disappears, search inn b&b patsy usc los angeles and it will pop up. TripAdvisor reviews were very positive, as was the report from S's freshman room mate's mom, who stayed there several times.</p>

<p>Inn</a> at 657 (Los Angeles, CA) - Inn Reviews - TripAdvisor</p>

<p>You can go directly to the website of the inn. The</a> Inn at 657</p>

<p>I've never stayed there. We had an awful experience with the paper-thin walls at the Holiday Inn near USC, but our friend had no complaints at the same hotel. Go figure!</p>

<p>If you have a car, Old Town Pasadena has a nice Courtyard, which we enjoyed staying at, but it's a 30+ minute drive to USC. We have friends who stay at airport hotels & zip to & from USC quickly. Most of the time, we stay with good friends and forgo the hotel experience, especially after our bad time at Holiday Inn.</p>

<p>I recommend the Radisson. It is directly across from USC and next door to the Galen Center. You will really get a feel for the area around USC by staying there, and it is easy to walk to different campus events (arts, sports, classes) that are happening during the time you are there. You can also get a feel for public transportation and take a shuttle or metro bus ride up Figueroa Blvd. to LA Live (Staples Center, movie theaters, restaurants) to get a feel for how students might spend an evening. I wouldn't recommend staying in Glendale or Pasadena as the freeway connecting those cities to USC can become very congested going through downtown L.A. and you will end up spending more time on the highway than at USC. Have fun and congrats!</p>

<p>You can read for yourself the reviews of the Radisson near USC vs. the B&B and other options. I agree that it's much more enjoyable to stay at a place that is walking distance from the campus so you can get a better feel for the place. I would strongly encourage you to investigate the B&B as I have only heard great things about it vs. a lot of folks who have felt the Radisson (in spite of its great location) is hugely over-priced for what you get.</p>

<p>Any good choices except for Radisson and Vagabond Inn? Please. My mother has just checked the prices 10 minutes ago and the prices went UP so much...especially for Vagabond Inn because they only offer King Size now.</p>

<p>Yes, the prices of hotels near USC rise during move-in week, orientation weeks, Parent's Weekend, and graduation - they also fill up quickly for those times. If you get a less expensive hotel further away, you will have the added expense of a rental car, so it still might be cheaper to stay in the more exepensive hotel nearby w/o a car.</p>

<p>If it is for orientation, many students with financial contraints come on their own on the red-eye in the morning of orientation and leave the next day to avoid having to get a hotel.</p>
