Can someone recommend a place other than a hotel that is reasonable to stay at for a week or two? I found a place that I want to rent but it isn't available for about a week or two. I am spending a lot of money at a hotel right now.

Are there any safe reliable places anyone could recommend? I have a bunch of stuff that I fit in my car so I would need somewhere to store it.

I'm not asking for a specific place but a type of establishment that allows people to stay for a while (like a hostel or international guest house or something like that).

Why not an extended stay hotel? Often times they have discounted weekly rates, like $250/week or even $700/month.

Craigslist is also an option.

^ these are probably the most common/best options you'll have. The US isn't so much a 'hostel' type of place

Go online for coupons for the extended stay places, they used to have them.

You could check into hostels in your area, stay in your car, get a one week temp membership to a health club for a place to shower, check out camping areas, with showers, or stay at the homeless shelter, you could check them out.

Or there are usually rooms for rent on CL, at weekly rates.

Or extended stay hotels. Lots of small, older hotels, have rooms at weekly rates.

Not exactly sure which area you're looking at --check out Craig's List where people post for short-term (1 week) listings.

We live in the Washington, DC area and there are usually plenty of these types of posts--attracts folks looking for a temporary place to live as well as tourists looking for a 1-week rate (instead of a hotel). Good luck!

I LOVE youth hostels! Here is the website for hostels in the US. This is the OFFICIAL hostel association listing. Am sure there are others, depending on where you are talking about.

Hostels to reserve in the United States, USA with accommodations in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, California, Miami, Washington DC, Boston Hostelling International USA - US Hostelling Stamp

As far as storing things, just go find a storage unit, a small one, for a month. Then you can move things in slowly. Might be $50 - $100 but worth not having to worry about it.

PS> Are you moving to Tuscon? Just google "hostel Tuscon" for non 'official' hostels. Here is one. $120 a week. But aren't long term hotels about $200 a week? Not much savings. http://www.roadrunnerhostelinn.com/c...page/Itemid,1/
