What's the least you have paid for a hotel stay

Provide the name of hotel and location if possible. And most importantly, let us know if you enjoyed the stay or loved the hotel/ room for the price!

The least I have paid for a hotel stay is $0 at several different casinos within the Harrah's family. However I must include it was due to my status with the casino. I did not get the status by not spending money with them.

In the late 70's I often would spend a couple days in Spokane, WA when traveling back and forth to college. There was a dumpy little motel downtown that cost me $9.00 a night. It was called the Uptown Motel. It only had around 10 units. There was a phone in the room. However it would only connect to the motel switchboard. When the clerk called it a night at 9 pm there were no more phone calls in or out. There was only a single bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling. You could smell the gas furnace. I can safely say I did not love the motel. But being a college student on a budget it was what I could afford.

I would say approx. $29 a night at a 3 star hotel in China and it was fine.

I think it was around $45?! It was a Knights Inn in Dillon, SC (by south of the border) I was moving back from FL, and we stopped there. First room the AC wasn't working, 2nd room was a smoking room (we wanted non-smoking), but at that point we had been traveling and it didn't smell bad at all, so we just stayed since it was like 1am in the morning.

I would never stay there again, unless if I find out that the place has really improved.

$1.78.....you read that right. I was returning back to the US from Mexico City and stopped at a Motel/Hotel south of Mazatlan. It was late at night and Hot. I asked if they had Hot water and she said YES. What she did not say was that the Cold and Hot water had the same temp.....very WARM.

I gave her a large Mexican Peso note and she had trouble making change for me.

In my room double checked my change (bills and coins) and the result was $1.78....could be she was WRONG.

$14.00 for a room with 2 beds in 1983, the place was a fire trap but didn't smell, didn't have rodents or bugs and was close to where we were visting. We stayed 2 nights.

This is sort of a tricky question because of all the inflation seen over the years. For example, I can remember when most of the Motel 6 rooms were $13.99. The Hilton Hotel across from Madison Square Garden in New York City used to be $33.

Most recently, I stayed in Thailand at a nice guesthouse in a room with daily maid service, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a free breakfast thrown in every morning, all for $13 a day.
