I've read through this whole Thread including the Villa vs. Hotel discussion. What wasn't much discussed is the many cheap Motels/Hotels within minutes walking distance of Chabad, I was wondering if anyone has more info on any of them (See Photos).
To be More clear, I'm traveling on a tight budget (just me and my wife) and want to be Friday & Shabbos in PS, the cheapest Villa's are about $300 per night and have a 3 night min stay. A quick search on Orbitz gives me many cheap hotels, One example The Curve Palm Spring is a 3 Star Hotel for $65 a night (after applying promo code).

I hope I'm not violating the forum rules but I'll try one more time, does anyone have info/reviews on any of the cheap hotels near Chabad of PS? Specifically The Curve Palm Spring but any other one will be useful. Thank you

Just for Shabbos. I believe it's a better place to Spend the Shabbos than LA. I can take the Aerial Tramway Friday Morning then enjoy the Outdoors (air, scenic) over Shabbos.

I'm quoting from my Previous post, "the cheapest Villa's are about $300 per night and have a 3 night min stay. A quick search on Orbitz gives me many cheap hotels, One example The Curve Palm Spring is a 3 Star Hotel for $65 a night"
This whole discussion (Hotel vs. Villa) was here b4, my question is if anyone knows anything on these hotels.
