When staying anywhere away from home for a period of several weeks to perhaps many months it is always preferable to most people that they are able to return to their “own” residence after work rather than living in a hotel. When you have your own home you can get to know the neighbors, shop in the local shops, and generally behave as you would in your home city. However, staying in a hotel for a great length of time can become quite depressing after a while, even though you may get to know the staff.
Hotels Are Expensive in Torrance
A hotel can also very quickly become extremely expensive with meals and drinks costing far more than outside. However, even if you decide to dine away from the hotel in a restaurant you will still spend far more on meals than you would if you bought and cooked your own. It is also the case with hotels that almost everything they supply is an “extra” – laundry, parking, flowers in your room (a quick check on one hotel just showed flowers as an extra “from” $45!).
