      Varies city to city. Some places you can get a 4 star room for $120/night, other places it's $300/night

    US is the most expensive country in the world for hotels taking quality and location into consideration. I used to like La Quinta, but it used to be $60 not $120. Here's a Day's Inn near fucking Fort Smith Arkansas for $83. I bet that used to be a $35 hotel 5 years ago. Useless thread. Hunker down if you live in the US to save for an RV or for an actual destination.

      This is the exact shit I'm talking about right here. How do people just accept these insane over charged prices. $4500 per month just to live in a decent hotel with out worrying about bugs and filthy sheets and shit

        I'm a neet so not 100% sure but I think it has something to do with companies paying for stays as there isn't a whole lot of consistent tourism anywhere in rural America

    Always check the price on the hotel's official website if they have booking. It's often cheaper, or if not, better, than the likes of booking or agoda.

        Hotels that list on Booking get anywhere from 10-30% taken off the top (depending on their bargaining power) by the booking company. Some hotels will offer 10% off the Booking price because they're still making more money than you paying on a third party site.

        I think it's a hotel ad. Hotels seethe pretty hard at OTAs and it looks like they've taken to this board to make it seem worth it for hotel loyalty programs. Guess what? if you overpay by $10 each time you stay at a hotel, they might give you a free night or a restaurant discount once in a while!

        I'm able to travel so much because I shop for the best deals using OTAs and whatever airline.

        I've rolled into motels and balked at the price they quoted and had them drop it so I didn't walk. I can usually sweet talk nicer hotels into giving me a nicer room for the same price.

          By negotiating with the front desk infant over the phone...how about 15%

          Show up, ask for the manager, good firm hand shake, explain your situation, and get the best deal you ever known.

          Streetshitter / shitskin behavior. Haggling is a sign of being poor, cheap as shit, and being uncultured.

          IHG spire member here, it's trash and not worth it. Holiday Inns have gotten so much shittier since COVID, they are still doing brown bag breakfast in a lot of places. I do like the Kimptons but the hassle of getting pubic hair in my bed is not worth it

          They call us IHG diamonds now. By the way, you must know that IHG rewards has always been a joke but at now they are promising real upgrades and real breakfast like a real chain of substance (I.e. Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott)

            Almost every motel in the US is owned by pajeets or chinks. In Canada it's even worse. They bought them all up and immediately raised prices while discontinuing nearly all maintenance. You can tell it's pajeet owned because you can smell curry and it looks like people live in some rooms of the hotel. I'm just returning the favor for them shitting up my country.

              You do realize why, right? In the US/Cucknada, you can buy a green card as an "investor", but you can do it even cheaper by operating a "business"

              Chinks and poos who are not wealthy enough buy up turn key businesses, employ X number of people for Y number of years, and qualify for a green card for less than the investment type visa that comes with instant green card. Same shit with corner stores, gas stations, etc.

              Obviously, as these are bug people, they treat the workers like shit, etc. and are obviously too cheap to sign franchise contracts with big chains who actually have standards

    Average cost 2 stars? In u.s

      Varies city to city. Some places you can get a 4 star room for $120/night, other places it's $300/night

      This. The US is a large and famously decentralized country. What you pay will vary considerably based on location but also seasonally, whether it's a weekend, etc.

      Expect basic but comfortable enough motels to range from $40-100 a night and "business" hotels in major cities like Marriott to be from $100-200 a night, occasionally more.

      Luxury hotels and resorts might go from $200 to $400 per night.

      The real crapshoot are casinos like in Vegas where it entirely depends on what is happening that weekend. Prices can go from free during some kind of promotion to $200 a night if there's a major event happening. This is for the exact same room.

        when was the last time you stayed at a hotel in the US? you need to add about 50-100% to those prices to be accurate. find me a single not shit hotel for under $50 a night. it hasn't been possible since 2020.

          Recently. About $35+tax is the lower limit of what you can score. For a MOTEL. Anywhere that's not a coastal city. Try to find one farther away from the highway and they're cheaper (also seem to be less likely pajeet owned). Look for what discounts you can score (Priceline, AAA, etc.)

          The best value in hotels in the US though is indian casinos. Try to find one of the smaller less popular ones without resort fees.

    It depends on the city. You have to research the specific area you're staying in. If you're staying in Chicago, you'd be fucking insane to stay in a motel. You'll end up in the ghetto and you'll get murdered. But if you're staying in Lake Tahoe California, just stay in whatever motel is the cheapest. There are no bad neighborhoods.

    I always compare Airbnb to Travelocity prices. And I check out the nice neighborhoods. There was a great app called Ghetto Tracker that helped you avoid bad neighborhoods (black areas), but they shut it down for telling truths that people couldn't handle.

      I have to add, that rate was probably a mistake as it was well over $700 lower than the hotel rate (Hilton Helsinki, pres. suite for $255) but i'd be at least decent to say that the price was a mistake instead of trying to pull it out of the site and claim that i was seeing the rate in another site
