I'm planning on shooting black and white film with my Rolleiflex TLRs in Los Angeles CA and Seattle WA from 9/24 to 10/6. If anyone can help with a low cost place to stay, please let me know. I used to assist in LA, and it was the last place my father lived. Haven't been there since 1998. Thanks :)

Good luck with this trip, Dan. Both cities have plenty to offer for a photographer.

Moore hotel in Seattle is a good value and a great location

A good option is [corrected: airbnb.com] bnb.com. You can find very cheap rooms that are clean.

Raid, do you mean airbnb.com? I've used it many times in the States and abroad.

+1 to Moore Hotel in Seattle, excellent location.

Yes, I do. airbnb gives good options for very reasonable lodging. I have used it in the USA and in Europe.

For LA, the higher end private roomed Hostel is the way to go

I've stayed at Stay On Beverly and liked it quite a bit.
The rooms are just slightly bigger then your queen sized bed and they have communal bathrooms.
Though once you're in the bathroom you can lock it for privacy and showering.
You're also back and away from Beverley blvd, so you hear almost no road traffic and the place is AC

This is a good suggestion too.
