US accommodation

Hi all,

I'm in the States (NY/MA) area for 2 weeks or so this summer and I'm trying to sort out some cheap accommodation- it's just me, and all I'm looking for is a bed for the night. Does anyone have any recommendations of chains/budget affairs that I should be looking at?

Cheers
 
Check out the local military bases - seriously, the US Armed Forces concessionary accommodation is very high quality and as far as I can remember, is available to British Forces as long as it doesn't inconvenience any of their own. We (me and the family) stayed at an off base self catering apartment just outside Tampa Air base for a week and it was excellent value. Production of MOD 90 was the only requirement as I recall, although it was a few years ago.

There's a thread about it too.

Economy Inns do a forces discount, I think it was 10%. If you move on and book another Economy Inn they give you a further 10% off that one.
Clean, good shower room and they do a basic breakfast of coffee and donuts.

Edit: Sorry, that should be Econo Lodge, not Inn

Check these for hotels unbooked rooms at a discounted rate, you often get a bargain:

Standard bookings through here:

www.hotels.com

Check the Hilton Group as they own loads of different hotels from cheap 'n cheerful up to top notch - I like the Hampton Inns if I need a guaranteed good nights kip.

Alternatively there are:

Marriot group

Holiday Inn

Decide your price and have a gamble on Hotwire.com would be my advice.

And don't invite any ladies of the night in, or you will wake up on your ownsome with your wallet relieved of all possessions, as my mongo mate found out during R+R from Belize.
