I'm trying to estimate the average nightly rates for motels that are maybe a step below a Motel 6 or a Super 8, and a step above a hostel. It's hard to get hard data because I don't know the names of these places until I pull into the town and see them and they are usually not listed in places like Expedia or even Google and usually don't have their own web page.

Can anyone help me out? I'm guessing they will be something less than $50-60 of Motel 6, but how much less? I seem to recall from travelling years ago that most of these places have similar rates across most of the country, away from major tourist areas.

Thank you.

I'm gonna guess they will be 10-20% less. Which won't cover the cost if your losses from the bed bugs.

Stay away from the neighbors.

The Motel 6 in Eureka charges $62 a night. How much cheaper do you think you're going to find clean lodgings?? Go with a chain. At least you can read reviews.

You will not find a consistant reliable motel below motel 6 / super 8 / red roof... scale / prices.

After 25 plus yrs using $10 - $20 per night worldwide guest homes I don't even consider a 4-5 star nearly as nice / friendly, helpful and safe as the thousands of guesthomes i have used. Will use 200 plus this yr alone.
