Decent, well kept, "clean" hotels or motels that charge by the week and don't do credit checks and are somewhat affordable (don't charge much more than a similar apartment would go for).

There used to be a bunch of these listed in the LA Times classified section. Do they still exist?

Have you tried these extended stay hotels? I donít know if they run credit checks.

It's not for me. The person who started the thread about renting with a bad credit report might be interested in something like this.

I've seen some ads in the Orange County Register for motels that go for about $200 per week.

I know what you all mean. Los Angeles is a city I am hoping to end up in the future. The last time I looked around for apartments and places as such to stay the rates were 1000-1500 dollars a month at least. I too was wondering if there were any hotel places where one could rent for the month and stay there for a while. Any additional suggestions would be appreciated.

No and credit checks are kind of dumb honestly. I have awful credit and I've never even been late on rent.

Also, if you have bad credit, a double deposit will usually result in more places working with you. But that can be mega expensive if the deposit is the same as first months rent.

Not really. Most places do them, but some of these hotels with monthly rates will let you live there providing you pay the rent on time. It comes as a plus when you have little or no credit.

There are short term rentals (less than 30 days) that don't do nearly the background checking because they are not considered tenants and are not protected by tenant law. For one, the manager can lock the "guest" out until he does pay. Lots of conditions (naturally). More here California Tenants - California Department of Consumer Affairs (http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/landlordbook/whois.shtml - broken link)

Because of the difficulties of evicting a non-paying tenant, landlords have to do what they can up-front to weed out who they think may be problem tenants. People with bad credit scores are feeling the brunt. If evictions were more streamlined, people with bad credit would have a much easier time.
