... can be as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be to a
certain degree, the most important thing is to keep on top of your
money; yes live the travelling life and do fun things but do it
yourself with your own money and it will be even more worthwhile and
fun; just remember not to leave yourself in debt else once the
travelling is over you'll have a hard reality to come back to. As a
rough guide for how much you might want to save, a travel agent told
Venice. Had made an appointment at the Apple store in Santa Monica to fix my iPad which had disabled itself. So Avalon drove us there and we went to Third St Promenade. The guy at the store just said oh thats easy and restored the iPad as a new one, wiping everything. A bit annoyed as I could have done that, what I was looking for was a fix without doing that. Anyway I have a back up in NZ so will just make do in the meantime. Right next door was a Lucky Jeans store, which is the ...
... has been in lots of movies. we also saw shops selling everything - tshirts, bongs, hash pipes, t-shirts, bongs… you get the general idea.
The next day we headed for the Universal Studios. There are several ticket options and all are eye wateringly expensive, but we went for the "Queue jumping" version. This means we wouldn't waste the whole day waiting in long queues and could get decent seats in the shows. Brilliant rides ...
... Mexican food we have had (although his recommendation for Chinese food is questionable). The fish taco was all we could think of for the next few days! The Gaslamp district, which I thought was famous for its historical Victorian buildings, was really only good for its restaurants and bars. We finally stopped at Dick's Last Resort, which unbeknownst to us, was known for its waiters and bartenders being extremely rude to its patrons. A guy went up to the bartender ...
... had a small group of 5 which was great for us. Our guide was really knowledgable and made the 2 1/2 hour tour so interesting. First we drove around and had a look at the outside streets, similar to what we saw at Universal. I saw the middle park section they show a lot in Ghostwhisperer across the road from her shop. Apparently they also used it for Gilmore Girls. We saw Luke's diner from Gilmore girls, where they just finished filming the new show ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsFarmer's Daughter Hotel Los Angeles
Conveniently located across from the original Farmer's Market (naturally), this is a handsome boutique property with internet access, DVD players, flat-screen TV's and elements of "country styled" Mid-Western kitsch. If it's luxury you're after, you'll be disappointed but if you like something a little bit quirky, you'll love it!
Old-fashioned pool lined with huge, bright yellow rubber ducks
Homemade, chocolate chip cookies, sweet tea & whisky tasting

Historical Traveler Reviews Farmer's Daughter Hotel Los Angeles
I stayed at the Farmer's Daughter for a family wedding in Los Angeles.
I have stayed at the Farmer's Daughter in the past while visiting my relatives and found that they have renovated their hotelin a country theme. The rooms were nicely done and looked great. There's plenty of amenities like a frige, safe, and free guest DSL. The staff made me feel comfortable and were very helpfull. I will definately recommend that anyone check them out if you are going to be in Los Angeles.
Another bum deal
I stayed at the Farmer's Daughter on August 28th with my two kids, aged 3 and 7 years old. The room was ok. The construction noise was bothersome. The stay was a non event, absolutely nothing special or charming about this place.Four days later we received a bill from the hotel charging us for two pillows for 60$. When we contacted them they refused to recognize that they were both accusing me and my two young kids of theft, but they were also acting as the judge and jury and collecting from us.I am fascinated by their gross misjudgement of common decency.Please consider staying anywhere but here, especially if you wish to avoid litigation with the owners at a later date.You will not miss anything and you may save yourself a LOT of headache. These are not nice people.
A 'lil slice of heaven
I just returned for 3 nights to the Farmers Daughter Hotel after being away for a year and a half, and oh WHAT A CHANGE!!! The renovations are almost completed, and this place is going to be AWESOME! They have added a whole list of new features like high speed internet and a charming new design. The staff is also very friendly and curteous. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay at an affordably priced spot in L.A. that is Funky, Piquant, and Comfortable at the same time.
A Nice Surprise...
OK, so I went on a business trip down to LA last week and this place was pretty close to my appointment. I booked it via the internet, but I hadn't heard of the place before...what a find!The rooms were very clean and fresh; the people were nice and polite and its great value for money(a big plus!). Id recommend giving it a try to anyone...Its a great place to stay if you do LA on the cheap but dont want to drop your standards :)
Great Location and I love the new rooms! A very pleasant place to stay.
I had the chance to stay at the Farmer's Daughter recently and their renovation is going to be fantastic. The rooms make you feel right at home. Not only that, but the Farmer's Daughter is located in the best location for shopping, wining and dining! Could not have asked for a better rate and a more accomodating staff! I am definitely going to stay there again on my next trip to LA!
Funky name, but great little hotel
Great place- I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I was expecting a really strange place from the name, but when a friend recommended it, it took the chance and booked it. I guess it has recently been re-done.
The rooms are very interesting. Very comfortable beds! The are is great. I also liked the location a lot. I had some friends in the same neighborhood. It made it easy for them to visit and it was convenient to shopping. I skipped their continental breakfast and walked across the stree the Farmer's Market.and that was a cool place to grab starbucks and read the paper. The price was way cheaper than the other hip hotels I checked out first. It was under a hundered bucks.
Best Deal in LA
I travel to LA frequently and ALWAYS stay here. the location can't be beat. The rooms are a great dealand clean. The owners and staff pleasant.
I vacationed with my wife and 21 year old daughter and 19 year old son in California on July of 2002. I am glad i found this site for a review. On 7/23/03 I checked into the Farmer's Daughter Hotel based on internet info I had seen. When I got there I asked to check out a room. I was shown a room with a queen sized bed and I thought it looked ok. However, when we were assigned a room with 2 beds, the room was nothing like the one I had seen. As a matter fact nobody in our party wanted to stay there when we saw it. We used the phone to call other hotels and left about 30 minutes later once we had secured a reservation elsewhere. When I asked for a cancellation I was told that was not possible. I asked to speak to the owner and they called him on the phone. He also refused to cancel the room charges. Needless to say we were all very upset but left anyway. We did however get charged on our credit card for $88.92. The floors were spotted and dirty and the walls in the room were dingy. I am glad we did not stay there and this review will be my way of getting some solace from the grief that they cost me and my family. I WOULD NEVER EVER VISIT THIS HOTEL AGAIN! THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME A PLACE TO INFORM YOUR READERS! By the way we found a great Best Western and had a great time in L.A. We WILL be back to L.A. Thanks, RRR
Upgraded!! Big Thumbs up!!
Stayed at this , what was a Motel but now it is something all its own, place and let me tell you it has been completetly redone!!!!!
The rooms have major style and comfort, kind of country.. Custom beds, FREE high speed Internet, wireless internet, plus all the usuals you would expect.
The big design plus was the WOOD FLOORS!!! That just put this over the top in terms of design.
Anyway, it was worth every penny.
