If you don't want to share a bath a couple of options are:

The Newton - upper west side, VERY basic, but in a good area and many rooms have private baths

applecore.com - a group of budget hotels, mostly in midtown, that get decent reviews.

Check tripadvisor.com to see recent reviews on all.

If you want something much cheaper than this you won;t find it in Manhattan without sharing a bath.

I agree with NY traveler..won't find it for $100/night. Newton is $120 with shared bath---$150 with private bath.

Log onto www.vrbo.com..there are alot of people who lease out their apartments. Maybe for a few more dollars, you can have a better property.

Also as some one mentioned you have to figure 15% tax added on to your room fee...From what i have read on this site there is no way you will find a room for $85.
I wonder if there is ANY chance Priceline would work for this price????
In my experience with Priceline (which I like) if they could fine a place for your price I would be afraid to stay there as it could be located in a less safe part of town????
Good luck..

We stayed at the Travel Inn on 42nd St. this summer for about $150.00--nice room, your own bathroom. And the reason we stayed....free parking.

I would recommend you either increase your budget or find another destination....and I'm being sarcastic!

Ooops, I meant to say that I'm NOT being sarcastic! I must learn to proofread my postings!

Hotel Wellington?

Don't know your exact dates - but the Wellington is showing special internet rates starting at $229 per night plus tax.

Really - $100 is not reasonable unless you are willing to do a B&B with shared bath. And even then - you need to be careful which place you choose.

Two bunk beds in a group room in a hostel would be about $70 per night - so you can see just how little $100 will get you.

Really you need to either increase your budget - or perhaps look at staying in one of the bargain chains out in Queens or New Jersey. But then you will spend a LOT of time - and perhaps considerable $ - getting back and forth to the city.
