I have to be in Manhattan Dec 6th - Dec 9th. My flight is booked and my appointments are scheduled. I am flying solo. My plan was to stay in Manhattan, and goof off after my appointments. Unfortunately, every hotel in Manhattan for those days is $600+ a night. Ordinarily I can Priceline $150 and get bites, but even after a $250 bid, I got nothing on a 3 / 4 *. So......where should I stay and still be able to explore Manhattan without freezing my ass off?? I can be a bit of a snob and would prefer not to stay in something lower than 3*. Any secret Manhattan hotels that I can get into that are not sh*t holes? Brooklyn? New Jersey? Connecticut?

Really like the discount "European" hotels with tiny rooms and the shared bath, like 500 West in San Diego and the Belnord in NYC. Where’s the similar cheap place in LA? And since I can’t imagine there’s many, lets open up the question to all metro-American tourist capitals. [more inside]

Is this a legit hotel booking site? Does anyone have any experience with hotelsireland.com, good or bad? I found a too good to be true rate for a hotel in Ireland (Trim Castle Hotel) that's about half the normal rate, but want to know I'm not going to be scammed when I give them money. Googling around isn't yielding anything in the way of reviews for this site. Thanks!

I want to travel to Sanibel or Captiva Islands - I am looking for accommodation, but I find it very hard to make a decision based exclusively on online research. I would welcome any advice on where to stay. I am not very fond of big chain hotels like Holiday Inn's etc.... I much prefer small motels or self-catered cabins, but I am afraid to book a shabby place because online everything looks pristine..... so, ideally I would love to find a small motel or cabin by the sea, in a quiet part of town. Another thing to consider is that I am traveling with my parents and our baby, therefore I am looking for places that have a apt-like layout, with ideally the choice of one or two bedrooms and a kitchenette. Any advice on this and other must-see, must-eat, must-do attractions would be greatly appreciated.
