List of Cheap Hotels near Magic Mountain
Good Nite Inn of Sylmar, CA is a good deal for theme-park fansGoodnite Inn, Sylmar: The Good Nite Inns are a small California-only chain of budget hotels.
Luckily for Six Flags Magic Mountain visitors, the chain has a location only about 9 miles from the theme park, in the northern LA suburb of Sylmar. It's directly to the east side of I-5 at the Roxford St exit.) As long as you have a car with you...as most Magic Mountain visitors do...you'll face only a short drive each way before you reach all of the theme park's fun attractions. Since Sylmar is north of Magic Mountain, your morning drive will be northwards---in the opposite direction of traffic flow during the morning commute. In the evening, likewise, you'll be heading towards Los Angeles at a time when most people are heading home from the downtown areas.
Unlike some brands of budget motels, Good Nite Inns feature a full-sized room, the size of which you'd find in more expensive chains. You'll enjoy other amenities, such as cable TV, a swimming pool and free morning coffee.
Because this Good Nite Inn is a good value for its price, you can expect it to fill up to capacity many nights during the busy summer months and on weekends during the spring and fall. Therefore, unless your trip is during the off-season, you should definitely make reservations ahead of time or you may arrive to find a full hotel.
Rates run around $45 in the off-season, and about $75 during the summertime, or can fall somewhere in-between these two extremes. Weekdays are generally less expensive than weekends.

Motel 6 near Magic Mountain
Motel 6 in Sylmar is another good budget motel near Magic MountainThe Motel 6 location in Sylmar, California is also a budget-lover's friend. Located next door to the Good Nite Inn, it, too, frequently fills up to capacity on busy summer days.
It's a bit plainer-looking than the Good Nite Inn, but I like it nevertheless. One reason is because of a strange parking lot situation in this location. The Motel 6 has adequate parking for all of its rooms, but the Good Nite Inn's parking lot can fill to overflowing (meaning that some cars have to park along the street curb.)
Rooms at the Sylmar Motel 6 look exactly like Motel 6 rooms almost everywhere. Same carpeting, same desk & chair, same bedspread. (I can get up in the middle of the night when the light is off and not run into anything...THAT'S how similar!) This Motel 6 delivers up the basics here, while charging up to 50% less than a fancier counterpart.
Wifi is available at this Motel 6 location for a small extra fee. One other extra fee is the "2nd adult" fee. Kids under the age of 18 stay for the basic room rate, but if there is a 2nd adult, a small extra fee is charged (around $3-5.)
Rates at the Sylmar Motel 6 run around $45 for a room on an off-season weekday, up to about $75 during the busy summer tourist season---very similar to the Good Nite Inn's rates.
The Sylmar Motel 6 address is 12775 Encinitas Avenue, Sylmar, CA 91342. The Sylmar Motel 6 phone number is (818) 362-9491.
Motel 6 website: for further information about this (and other) Motel 6 locations near Southern California attractions, you may refer to the Motel 6 official website.
