Default Relocating To Orange County, Looking for Monthly Hotel/Motel Rentals? Afford. Areas?

I will be relocating to to Orange County area from Florida and would like to
find temporary housing.

I am interested in hotel/motel lodging for a couple of months so that I will be able to check out different areas before I rent an apartment. Are there any reasonable priced monthly rentals in decent area?

Also intersted in finding affordable 3 bedroom apartments around Anaheim/Orange county.

I have noticed that Apartments seem to be much more affordable around Riverside area.

Any help is greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Reasonable is relative. What are you looking for exactly? Riverside is inexpensive because it's over an hour drive at rush hour, but, if you're forced to go that route, there is a train that goes from Riverside to Orange and Anaheim(Metrolink)

There is a large complex in Seal Beach, OC, called Oakwood. They offer lots of temporary housing. Inexpensive can be relative, and Seal Beach isn't inexpensive, but for what Oakwood offers, it might be just what you need. Fully furnished, breakfast every morning, pool, gym, etc. and I believe they offer a month to month option temporarily. Might be worth checking out.

There's an extended stay hotel on Imperial Highway near Kramer, iirc in Placentia, I think it is (maybe Yorba Linda?). It's a nice property in a safe area.

Generally, regular motels that offer monthly rentals are crime havens. I used to work in the hospitality business and have seen the good and bad in that trade. So you want to be pretty choosy.

Good luck.

Whatever you do, don't lodge on Beach Blvd in Anaheim. All of those hotels and motels are loaded with drugs, prostitution, and crime. People live in them and they aren't the people you want to meet.

Hi DuBose,

I've just been helping someone find a rental in Anaheim for the last week and he also was looking for a 3 bedroom in a safe area in Anaheim. The average rent for a house is right around $2000 a month. The houses we looked at were in nice, established neighborhoods, and had large yards (for So.Cal!) If you're willing to live in an apt or condo, you can find things for a little less in Anaheim, Tustin & Fullerton. Depending on what you're willing to spend, you might even find a cute little house in Orange.

Unfortunately, I don't know much about long term hotels. But I will say that when we first moved to CA, quite a few of the apt complexes we looked at offered 6 or 9 month leases (then month to month). You may even find one that offers 3...but I don't know any off the top of my head.

If you need any more help, just drop me an email!

Not ALL!, the Ramada or Baymont Inn Suites are fine. They can't afford those. I stayed at Baymont.
Although, it is obvious from driving by to know which ones you are talking about. I almost got hit by a gang-banger riding his bike the wrong way towards my car.
It is along a route I used to drive through for work to get to the freeway.
