Go to www.biddingfortravel.com to get an idea of what to bid. Go to priceline.com to get the hotel. Not sure what inexpensive means to you but you definitely can save 60% off the rack rate of hotels using this method

We routinely get the hyatt or hilton downtown for $70/night using priceline for visiting employees. they arent always available, but when they are it is a great deal.

I am staying at the Homestead Suites - Arboretum (in the Northwest) for $60 a night. I got it by simply going to their website - no bidding involved/

You tend to get a much higher level of accomodation for virtually the same price using Priceline. It is an art form however, and you need to know how to bid. Biddingfortravel.com is a must read.
I have gotten the Maui Hyatt for $150 a night and ths Rennaisance San Francisco for $69 a night among many many others....

Good Luck!
