You may think that Ontario’s proximity to Los Angeles would make lodgings there similarly priced. Fortunately, though the selection of highly rated hotels is similar, rates are considerably lower. Of course, you can find budget-friendly options as well as more luxurious ones in the city, but you may be surprised by their affordability.
Hotels near the airport, which offer similar amenities as those farther away, are typically more reasonably priced, making them ideal for business travelers. Not only do they have everything they need – wireless Internet, conference rooms, and ease of getting back to the airport – but they save money over comparable hotels in town. Guests were pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms, remodeling, and security that had gone into these hotels.
Ontario, CA is a great city for families, meaning hotels that offer suites are more prevalent in the area. There are several suite-only accommodations that give guests more square footage and separate rooms in order to give everyone their space and enable the adults to enjoy alone time once the kids go to bed.
If shopping is high on your list of priorities, booking a hotel near the Ontario Mills Mall makes it easy to indulge in a lot of retail therapy. With almost 1.5 million square feet, it’s easy to get lost here – the largest one-story mall in North America – while visiting 200 stores, restaurants, services, and the movie theater. It’s likely that your chosen hotel room will have the extra capacity to hold your many purchases, especially since it is near the airport, so you will also have saved some money on your stay to afford more goodies.
A rental car, while nice, is not necessary to get around Ontario. The city bus can get you around most everywhere and the Metrolink station will get you into the Greater Los Angeles area if you choose to explore farther out, which means no matter where you stay in the city, you are conveniently located.
