Help me find lodging in Homer for <$90.00 including taxes

My first post here but when planning my trip to Alaska I read many posts on this travel board. My budget is very low for my 18 days in Alaska. I travel alone and won't be camping. I have a small rental car booked and now need to find a clean accommodation in Homer. My budget for two nights in Homer is no more than $90.00 per night. I could stay outside Homer but I need to find a clean place. Every review of the Homer hostel says it is filthy. I can deal with bunk beds, share bathrooms but I don't do too well in dirty lodgings. Please help me find a clean room in or near Homer. I know Alaska is expensive. Is there a hope to find very inexpensive accommodations in Homer? Maybe someone knows about a room/cabin/ motel under $90.00? Please help!!

GullBay, your list became very important. Thank you for it

I finally found a place within my low budget after doing lots of research on websites you all recommended. I'm able to spend a little more than $90.00 in Homer because my hostel in Seward is $50.00 per night.

Denalicat, thank you for suggestion but I scratched this place from my list because of filth that everyone mentioned on Yelp and Trip Advisor including fti, who is my low budget hero.

Coalminer I too rather sleep in a car than stay at night in a dive but thank you k2iks for this and other suggestions.

YesSeattle, I donated my camping gear a few years back and not planning to buy a new one. There are reasons for my decision.

Rainbird I'm too curious why would you make this comment << I am sort of curious why you are determined to go to Homer if you don't have the money for a room there>>?

I do have money but my lodging budget is very low and specific after strict calculations and extensive planning.

Are you saying those who cannot afford to spend less than $150.00 per night for accommodation shouldn't travel to Alaska? I traveled to many countries on limited budget and my best memories are when sharing bunk rooms and or bathrooms with other travelers. I'm lucky to meet many interesting people while traveling on a strict budget. Many of us keep in touch and two of them whom I met in 2003 in Greece now live in Fairbanks where I'm invited to stay for four nights in their cabin. I had low budget traveles from around the world staying at my humble little house.

WonderNorth, as a fan of the "Europe Through the Back Door" style of travel, I applaud you, but you also have to be realistic. There is not a hostel in every town in Alaska and the ones we do have are mostly open seasonally. You can set as "strict" a budget as you want, but if it won't get you a room for the night, then it is not realistic. I have managed to stay all over the world for less than $100 a night, but there are places in Alaska where that would be very, very challenging if not impossible.. I gave you good options for under $100, but setting an arbitrary budget without knowing the local economy and options is just not good practice.
