Affordable hotel in NYC mid-week, end of may

Hi, I am thinking about visiting NYC from 05/24 to 5/26. Do you have any tips re: how not to spend more than $100 per night on hotel? (besides sleeping on the street, of course...) I don't need luxury, but was wondering whether I will be able to get something decent at all...

Appreciate your advice. :)

Hi, I'm glad you beat me to asking this question, except that I'll likely go in earlier part of May.

Saw an offer at the Habitat Hotel. The pictures look good, of course! A basic room is something like US$85. But I'm quite torn. The reviews on this site are generally positive. But most reviews on the travel Yahoo site say that it's a bad mistake.

www.nyinns.com offers US$99/day at the Murray Hill Inn. But again, haven't seen reviews about that one...

I suppose there's always the Y - West Side or Vanderbilt. A single room with shared bath is available at US$75...

Any further advice/thoughts?

Many thanks!

I can also recommend the Red Roof --->

http://www.applecorehotels.com/

Maybe a bit more expensive (139 USD) but clean, close to Subway etc. (see reviews here, all really good)

Or the Deauville --->

http://www.hoteldeauville.com/

I have never been there, but I maybe will book it next time. The reviews here are also not the badest! And it is really cheap!

If you are going there let me know!

Best regards,

If you're thinking of places like Habitat and Murray Hill Inn, I'd suggest you look for reviews on hostelz.com which is a website for hostels. That's really what they are. I think I'd rather get a private room at one of the YMCA's. They don't get bad reviews here, one called the Vanderbilt and the other called Westside.

Also check Second Home on Second if you don't care about location.

We stayed at the Grand Union hotel on East 32nd between 5th Av and Park Av 2 mins from ESB and a subway station at the other end of our street. This hotel is classed as a budget hotel, it was clean, tidy, very reasonably priced 55 pounds (this was during Easter holiday) and a comfortable bed.

Thanks for the tips!

topolina74, will let you know if I do stay at Deauville.

nywhiz, I think I've seen the Second Home on Second website. Interesting rooms. It seems like there are lots of such establishments ie conversion of houses into guest homes with a different themed room. It's in the East Village, near the Greenwich Village area, Soho, Little Italy? The location doesn't sound too bad. I'd like to visit even if I'm not staying in the area. It's relatively safe? (everyone will want to feel safe wherever they are).

cheers
