California is situated on the western coastal area of the United States. The state is around 200 miles wide from the western pacific shores to the eastern deserts that border the states of Arizona and Nevada. It is bounded in the south by Mexico and in the north by the state of Oregon, a stretch of almost 900 miles.

California is blessed with various geological features that cover almost the entire length and width of the state. These create a variety of climates and unique sceneries that makes California an excellent place for tourists. In fact, the California coastline stretches from the tropical soft sand beaches of San Diego to the craggy northern coastlines near Oregon. The pacific waters is warm in the southern portion of the state, reason enough for surf loving tourists to flock its beaches dotted with palm trees.

Down north, waters are cooler and sandy beaches scarcer. But this lack is amply compensated for by a more scenic coastline. Swimming and hiking take a backseat in northern California, while visiting isolated beaches to watch sea otters, seals, birds or whales are the more popular activities for tourists.

There are many motels in California that do brisk business with tourists who are on their way to visit the numerous vacation spots of the state. The following are some of the relatively cheap motels that cater to the needs of tourist and locals alike:
