(Christina always posts like that.)

I think the best help I can give, I gave already. To contact hotels directly. Because a hotel that shows as No Vacancy on hotels.com or booking.com does NOT necessarily mean there are no rooms available.

Christina has apparently not stayed in a crappy motel OR a hostel recently. The last couple of hostels Iíve stayed in definitely had nicer furniture and more amenities than your average motel. The idea that hostels kick you out in the middle of the day is outdated and increasingly rare. And yes, most people would rather not share a room, but thatís up to the individual. Sharing a room honestly bothers me less than the twin sized bunks. After a month of that, Iím ready to check into a hotel with a king sized bed. If someone new to hostels is reading this, itís very useful to look at room pictures to find out how easily it is to climb up to the top bunk. Some of the wooden bunks are beastly.

I did forgetóIím not sure if anyone has mentioned itóbut hostels donít usually have daily housekeeping. I donít know how the Bend ones do it, but a lot of them charge a few bucks for a towel, and usually, youíre required to make your own bed. Not a big deal, but thatís something that has surprised friends of mine in the past when theyíve stayed at hostels.

HI, Rachel,

Just a couple of thoughts. I checked out your other thread and I really think you need your own space. I'm from Oregon so I have a couple of ideas for you.

1. Try a yurt at Thousand Trails Sunriver. If you can borrow bedlinens from your dad's house, then the cost is $101/night. (There is an extra $15 fee per bed to use theirs.) Not knowing your dates, I can't speculate what is open when. But for Jul 15-18, there is a smaller yurt available. I have stayed at this park and really like it.


2. Generally in vacation lodgings, weekends are booked up faster and are more expensive than weekdays. This is true whether it's yurts, hotels, vacation houses. So maybe you could find something on weekdays that is a little better and then move on Friday to the less expensive location.
