Are there any swap meets / flea markets in the area on weekends anymore?
I will be there in a couple weeks with a free Friday and Saturday. With
Friday likely reserved for CHM, I'd track down a swap meet on Saturday
if such things still exist.

I thought the Vintage Computer festival west link
might have recommended hotels but I couldn't find anything for you.
I did a similar trip but needed to be quite a few hours south for my actual destination.
I didn't find a very cheap hotel either, and the under $100 one I did find near long
Beach was quite underwhelming. The type my wife wouldn't have let us stay at.
What I did find more useful was a super small rental car for $98 that did give me much
more freedom to get around a few sites (and Weird Stuff). ?It was highly recommended not
to sleep in the car though so best luck.
I explored airbnb but it seems to mirror closely to hotel prices and a surprisingly large
amount want a 2 day stay.
But CHM is definitely a fun trip. I have a quite large collection for home computing so I
wasn't sure how long I'd stay occupied but between the demos and tours and just
perusing I definitely could have enjoyed more than the afternoon I spent.
Best recommendations were ubering or rental car then get a hotel in your price range but
don't worry as much about location. Or get one near the train.
