Need Hotels Suburb of Paris!!!

I need to get some hotels info that are slightly
outskirt of Paris towards 17e direction. The
reason is that I might drive from London to Paris.
Once I get to Paris, I will leave the car at the
hotel and travel to town with train/metro.

I would like to get a clean, safe, and economical
(no-star,1-star) hotel that offers free parking.

I have been surfing the net and read books but
no luck.

I would really appreciate if someone will help
me with this information. Thanks!

Here's the official website for the French Government Tourist Office:
http://www.francetourism.com/REGIONAL/paris.htm
Send e-mail requesting "Hotels et Residences de Tourism - Paris". You will receive this guide quickly in the mail. There are ten one-star hotels listed in the 17th. This book covers all 20 arrondissements and some outlying towns. Also includes ammenities, prices, phone numbers, fax numbers and so forth. You will probably find, however, that you can stay and park in a more central location just as economically as in the 17th and be in a more pleasant neighborhood. Another place to check for hotel recommendations would be the travel section of the bookstore - the Let's Go Paris, Rough Guide, and others offer extensive listings of budget hotels.

Thanks Donna for the response.
I have looked at those books but they're catered
mostly to Central Paris. You mentioned about
being more economical in the central Paris but
the parking cost is outrageous.
I have emailed the France Tourism to send me the
book.
Thanks again!

We just came back from Paris and we stayed with the
Ibis hotels in the city but they also have hotels
in the outskirts. Also check a 1 star hotel called
Etap which is part the the same chain but less expensive.

I'll be honest with you -- I think you may have
to re-think your requirements because it will
be difficult if not impossible to find what you
want (a dirt cheap hotel with amenities such
as free parking) within any reasonable distance
of Paris. You don't say what you want to spend
on a hotel but if you can find a hotel in Paris
with parking, it's not that outrageous -- usually
about $10-15 a day. You will spend more than
that commuting back and forth by train/metro,
most likely, espec. if you have more than 1 person.
However, you won't find a no/1-star hotel with
any parking, let alone paid. I don't understand
why you want the 17e arr. because I would
think you'd be driving in on the A1 (?) which is
more north-central Paris. Anyway, here's the
only suggestion I have -- there's a Holiday Inn
Express-Le Bourget (near CDG airport) which is
the cheap version of this chain that I think has
free parking; it's a 2-3 star hotel but the rates are
less than 350FF a day, I think, for a double.
I know of a somewhat cheap hotel in Chantilly
that has free parking--that's how far out you have
to go--but the train fare to/from Paris would cost
you more than parking in town (not to mention the
time traveling). There's a good 2-star hotel in
the 17e arr. (Les Deux Acacias) which I think has
pkg available (very rare this central) but it's $15
or so. I don't have one, but isn't the Michelin
guide supposed to list all hotels in France, even
the cheapest? Maybe it could help.

My wife and I stayed at an IBIS hotel in Gentilly, which is just of the Paris "ring". The rate was only $60 per night, and it included free parking, and the Metro station was a very short walk away. Gentilly is on the south side of Paris, but I'm sure there are hotels along the ring on the north side as well, which would be more convenient for you. Staying in suburbia like you want to do and we did is an easy way to make a Paris stay more affordable.
