Of course we still want somewhere safe and clean. We're hoping to only spend $50-90. The cheaper, the better. We will have a car so if we have to drive a little we can, but we don't want to be too far. We stayed at a hotel by Knott's Berry Farm last time and that is probably the furthest out we'd go. That hotel was not very clean though so we won't be returning there.

So, any recommendations would be great!
Try the Del Sol Inn

about Priceline "bidding" you are only guaranteed a room for two people. you can req 2 beds but at the time of check in, it's whatever is available. This happened to me before and there were 3 of us ( me, my bf and bff ) and when we checked in, they only had a king bed avail.

You must mean Biddingfortravel.com. Betterbidding.com mods are much more civilized than Sheryl at BFT.

I'm glad you hijacked because its something I wouldn't have thought of! I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to bid though.

Since my daughters are performing there during our trip we got a special rate. Its less than $350 ... Less than half the regular price. So yeah, everything around there is still cheaper, but because this is still a splurge for us (we could never afford the Grand at normal prices) we want to keep our extra day as low as possible.

I never realized that they could do that! Wow. The more I think of all of the bidding stuff, the less I think its worth it. lol Thank you SO much for bringing that up! We're a family of 5 so one bed would be a deal breaker.
