20 day stay in Northbrook. Economic options?

I have an internship in Northbrook in November 2009. I'll be staying for 20 nights. Even at a really cheap hotel rate, I won't be able to afford that. $65/night will add up to $1300 and that won't be my only expense. Anyone have ANY suggestions for an economically viable option? I thought about rooming with someone who is advertising an extra bedroom but I'm concerned about staying with a stranger 1000 miles from home.

Did you check rates at the Red Roof Inn in Deerfield? With a 20 day stay, it's best to contact properties directly to negotiate a better rate.

If you'll have a car, there's an Extended Stay America in Skokie.

Well, I grew up in Northbrook, my parents still live there, and I believe our town's rate of perversion is quite low....

Seriously, what choices do you have? Northbrook is a pretty pricey place these days. Staying with a family can have a lot of benefits, besides the low cost.

Also, where is your internship? You will absolutely need a car. Northbrook is pretty spread out, and the traffic can be awful along Willow Road. You may want to look at the adjacent suburbs, but don't expect lower prices unless you go west to Wheeling.

You may want to contact the office where your internship is located and ask them for a housing recommendation. Surely, others have had the same problem.
