I have lived in LA for five years now and am looking for another place to live. Like everyone here I am an artist trying to fulfill my dreams and meanwhile cleaning houses, doing VJ gigs, assisting other artists, working on film crews, etc., and want to keep my overhead low. While i am looking for a permanent place I was wondering if you guys could help me weigh in on the residential hotel tip.
anybody out there know of some good residential hotels that would run 500- 700 a month with wifif? personal experiences? barring that anyone have a cheap apartment out there that they want to rent, preferably close to downtown and the eastside?

Traditionally, "residential hotels" in Los Angeles are run-down places near skid row that house people who are one step from homeless (mostly addicts). Or something like Chateau Marmont, the other end of the spectrum. The cheapest option is probably to search Craig's List for a room to rent.

Some of the old residential hotels were really nice before they were turned into welfare hotels.
I spent a couple months in the Frontier Hotel in Downtown LA. The building was in terrible shape, but I could see that it was a wonderful place at some time in the distant past.

This was about 20 years ago or so. I think the hotel was converted into condos a few years ago.
