Last minute London hotel booking on the cheap - is it even possible?

I'm heading into London for the big expo at the ExCel centre, and having been uncertain whether or not I'd be attending this year, bought my ticket yesterday. Now I'm in a quandary over where to stay as I have a relatively minor amount of cash to spend and have left it far too late to get any kind of early booking discount.
What I need from you, dear hive mind, is suggestions for cheap(ish) accommodation that isn't so far from the south east that I'm looking at hopping at four or five different tube lines to get within walking distance of the ExCel. I'm a midlands lass, never been to London on my own, and can get lost going out my front door - complicated travel routes just spell disaster... Maybe cheap and local isn't feasible now, maybe there's some gem only a Londoner would know about, maybe I'm out of luck and just have to bite the bullet. What ever the case, anything you guys can advise or suggest would be wonderful.
