Top tips for finding the perfect California hotel

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in California, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in California in April and November.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in California if you stay on a Tuesday. The opposite is true for, Saturday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 66 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your California accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in California found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was RM 526, while the most expensive was RM 1,881.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in California for 2 days.
  • If you’re planning a beach vacation for the entire family but would like to get away from some of the hustle and bustle of larger cities in California, a great spot to visit is Pismo Beach. This town on the Pacific offers beautiful beaches in a much quieter and family-friendly setting. The Inn at the Pier is a great waterfront location for a family.
  • If you are going to be heading to the quiet town of Monterey, California in September for the annual Monterey Jazz Festival, make sure you book as far as advance as possible, as the hotel options in the area are somewhat limited and they book up quickly for this festival. You can book a hotel that fits your necessities through KAYAK.
  • A popular year-round destination in California is Lake Tahoe and the town of Salt Lake Tahoe. This area offers a combination of large-scale resorts as well as much quieter lodges and inns. The smaller properties are generally a much better choice for families or for those on romantic getaways.
  • If you are traveling to the large metropolitan area of Los Angeles, it is best to book a hotel near where you plan on doing most of your activity. Traffic in this area can be heavy at all times of the day and making trips of long distances in the city can take quite a bit of time.
