HELP! Best budget accomodations in NYC?

Hi All,

I'm doing a very short stay in NYC in late September (2 nights). Will be solo.

Need a clean, safe budget accomodation. Will consider B&Bs also.

Saw a great $99 deal in Brooklyn, but it expires early September.

Also, I'm a AAA member if that helps...

Many thanks!

P.S. Has anyone stayed at the LARCHMONT HOTEL in the West Village? Thoughts?

Well - it's very basic with a shared bath - almost a B&B. And it fits your budget only on weekdays - weekend rates are higher. If you do a search below I believe someone stayed there recently and had a problem with hot water (but I may have mistaken the hotel).

At that time of year for that budget you will problably have to share a bath - or stay in a hostel. There's one associated with hosteling international that gets good reviews - at 103rd near Amsterdam. I believe $40 per night for a bed in a dorm room with locker. But - you might check if they have a private room.

You could also bid Priceline. The problem is that some of their 3* places are not too pleasant. Check betterbidding.com to see what people are getting - and if you can live with the options.

Thanks to you both.

nytraveler: I think you're right about the shared-bathroom thing.

Hmmm. Maybe I should look around some of the nicer parts of BROOKLYN as well. I don't mind staying in Brooklyn, and just taking the subway in when I need to.

Cheers!
