Hi all and thanks for reading.
Looking at this forum, I realize that this has already been asked quite a bit, but I wanted to see what I could get for my situation.
I'll be coming for one night in late May and am looking for a hotel in the Hampton Roads area, preferably on the southern side in Norfolk or nearby. I'm looking for something cheap ($50) and am absolutely prepared for what that rate entails. I'm only worried about getting stuck in a terrible neighborhood and having the rental car busted into, as I know that Norfolk is a military town and I've read some reviews that mention crime issues at some places.
I had seen the Super 8 or Rodeway on the bay on the northeast side of the city, and that sounds good, but I'm not sure what sort of area that is and what to expect from the hotel.
Ideally, I'd like a non-chain place close to a Downtown or business area that's active at night. Not sure if that even exists for Norfolk, especially for about $50/night.
Any help or insight would be appreciated. I've never been to Norfolk (haven't been to Virginia in 20 or so years), so I'm excited about the trip.
Thanks in advance,
