Help us budget for scouting L.A.

My wife is working on a grant application for a research trip to Los Angeles centered around getting a feel for old Hollywood and the western part of L.A. (this is working towards a novel taking place from the 50s to roughly the early 90s, FWIW). We're trying to put together a budget for the proposal, and were hoping to get some guidance.

So we're trying to figure out where in the city she should try to stay- both in terms of region and specific places - so that we can look up rates. Trying to find places that aren't crazy expensive or cheap, scuzzy hovels.
We'd also appreciate any other suggestions for stuff that should be kept in mind for the budget- we're planning on airfare, accommodation, and car rental, but not sure if there are other LA necessities.
