Park a little ways away and ride a bike in. You'll be laughing at everyone stuck in traffic waiting to park. When the event is over, hop on your bike. You'll be back on the freeway before a lot of folks are out of the parking lot.

That's a good idea. Or take a shuttle. I overhead a guy the other day saying he paid $50 to park at a USC game, or maybe he said UCLA. I am not sure what Rose Bowl parking is like, but you should check into it.

I'll only be going into Pasadena for one of four days, so a long commute there and back wouldn't be the end of the world (granted the gold runs late, and it seems to). Or, hell, I'm not opposed to driving to Pasadena, parking a few miles away and walking...like Charles mentioned.

Just found a few other cheap ones outside of downtown (near Echo Park, I think). That's another option, I suppose.

Thank you for all your help/suggestions.

1255 W Temple St...Is this a safe address? Obviously, I know nothing about LA.

Could drive from here or walk to the Civic Center metro about a mile away.

No don't go someplace in Echo Park that you don't know... I'm thinking off the top of my head there's a Holiday Inn in Burbank, by the airport. Burbank is close by. It's better to drive thru downtown than to be caught up in it. You could walk from Eagle Rock (Colorado Ave.) there's a few small motels there.

Thanks to everyone for the help! We stayed in Westwood and had a great time. The buses were also surprisingly quick and easy for where we wanted to go for the four days.

I don't know how much of a surprise or how unusual this is. Most who regularly post here and bash the LA public transportation system don't use it. So your experience is as real and authentic as anyone elses and might be more indicative of what is normal.

Glad to hear you had a nice visit to LA. Too bad your team lost though.
