Hotels from Los Angeles to Reno are offering discounted and even free nights to people who evacuated their homes due to the deadliest wildfires in California history. 

Standard's two Los Angeles hotels, the Standard Hollywood and Standard Downtown L.A., are offering both free and discounted stays to people displaced by the fires. The free-night offer is based on availability and is good for same-day, one-night stays only. They can be booked by calling the properties directly: 323-650-9090 (Hollywood) or 213-892-8080 (downtown). 

Visit West Hollywood has a list of hotels offering discounted stays to displaced residents and their pets. They include the Andaz West Hollywood, the Chamberlain West Hollywood, La Peer Hotel, the London West Hollywood and Ramada Plaza West Hollywood.

According to news sources in Reno, the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino is offering 50% off its rooms for evacuees while the Eldorado, Circus Circus and Silver Legacy are offering varying discounts. 

In a statement on its website, Visit California sought to remind travelers that most of the state is safe for travel: "California is a large state and wildfires in one location typically have no impact outside a limited area. In fact, a vast majority of the Golden State is currently unaffected by fires. Visit California's first concern is always the safety and well-being of California residents and visitors, so we recommend that visitors who are planning a trip to California check out and contact their hotel and local convention and visitors bureau for all pertinent updates."
