Not sure, I do know as you move away from the downtown area the cheaper and nastier the hotels tend to get. Have you considered some of the smaller communities outside of the metro?

I have no idea what would be the cheapest. What part of town do you need to be in?

Any part is fine as long as it's not too ghetto. Not too far from OKC.

That question is entirely too vague. I used to work in the travel industry and know that hotel prices can vary drastically based on proximity, season, check-in/-out days, local events, name/prestige, cleanliness, area, availability, discounts, etc. You could look into extended stay hotels, but in all honesty you're going to have to do the research/price comparisons on your own.

Not too ghetto and not too far from OKC are way too vague also.
What part of OKC do you not want to be too far from? The north side, east west, south, downtown? How far is too far? What is cheap to you? What is ghetto to you? Your definition and mine may way different.

Thank you all for answering.
I've decided that I will live and work in Oklahoma City. I don't know where I will be working yet, so an apartment (300$-400$) anywhere in OKC metro will do (except areas like Norman, I think It's too far from OKC). A ghetto to me is one of those places where it's VERY likely for someone to break into my car for example. That's what I think is ghetto.

300-400/month for an apartment is going to be small and 'ghetto'. Your best bet for that price/what you want is finding a garage apartment in Heritage Hills/Mesta Park, which usually takes knowing a friend of a friend situation. Best of luck...

This. OKC ain't that cheap.

If you are only going to be here a month or 2 you're going to have difficulty securing even a crappy apartment, as leases often require more rent to be paid for such a short term. Your best bst is to get some sort of extended stay place or rent a room off someone.

No offense, but your posts are very vauge. We don't need your life story, but it would be great to know what side of town you will be working on so people can suggest where/what you could live in.

Excellent post, and true.
You *might* be able to find a studio apartment in NW OKC (i'm not familiar with the south side at all, sorry) on the high end of your budget, but that would be it apartment-wise. Stay away - at all costs - from the Ghetto that is Lyrewood Lane. It's just scary there! If you spend some time Googling, grab an Apartment Finder at a grocery store, do some driving around - that's your best bet. Drive by at different times in the day and see what's happening. That's what has worked best for me. Good luck!
