Hi people,
I am going to Garden Grove, CA and will stay in the area for the labor day weekend; flying in and leaving from LAX airport. I would like to stay in a hotel that is in a safe and decent neighbor in that area and would like to some suggestions on which hotels are decent, clean, and moderate price ($30-$60) range. I hear that Santa Ana isn't safe to venture through, isn't that correct? Does anyone know a specific streets in Garden Grove to avoid? I am visiting a friend whose home is around Interstate 22 and North Euclid street, and I am borrowing his car for a couple of days to tour around. What about Westerminister and Anaheim for staying?

Santa Ana is a place you wouldn't want to live, but its not Gary, Indiana either. There's parts I wouldn't want to get lost in at night though. Its OK to drive through as long as you have car insurance because you'll be the only one around that does. The area you'll be staying is typical of Garden Grove. Its not the greatest area (its nicknamed Garbage Grove) but again, its not the kind of place people get shot every day.

what is the average rate for a decent and clean hotel in a safe area? Here in chicago, a decent hotel could be found around ($50-60 price range). Any suggestion?

I've never stayed in a hotel around there. You might want to go on hotwire.com and see if you can get a 3-4 star hotel for a decent price. At that level, it'll be an actual hotel and not a rundown no-tell motel dive that Garden Grove is sort of known for. My parents did that a couple of years ago when they got their house termited and wound up at the Doubletree at Chapman and The City Drive (not too far from your friend) for maybe $60/night.

Huntington Beach is a recommendation. There really isn't a bad area in the city... Fountain Valley which is nearby is also similar. Southeastern Westminster wouldn't be a bad choice either and neither would Western Garden Grove (west of Knott). Lots of good areas close by...

Ahh Garbage Grove love the nice names people give this city- granted it isnt Bel Aire but it has a few nice hotels, beautiful homes and nice peeps--there is anice hotel on Garden Grove Blvd and Galway closest to Brookhurst St.

Double Tree hotel by The Block at Orange of City Drive and a Hilton on City Drive and Orangewood Ave.
