Aug 18th 2012 8:48AM I travel a lot all over the world using AirBnb and house sitting. Occasionally I need to stay at a hotel. Recently it was a Sleep Inn in Denver. It was THE cheapest place in the Denver Tech area. They had the waffle batter and a hot waffle iron to cook it with. The milk and juice was served from a cooler machine. There was fresh unpeeled fruit like apples and oranges and probably stale cereal, about three kinds. And of course the white breads and muffins, packaged. I don't eat grains at all so the only thing I took was fruit and coffee. I wouldn't pass judgement on the place, it was only $75 for two of us, and some sustenance was offered. My son ate quite a bit, but he's a bicyclist and 21. If I'd paid $150 a night, I would have been quite ticked off at the offering.
Feb 25th 2011 9:42AM I have a van. I take the seats out and the entire back end is open for a blow up mattress and other travel gear. I had a Nissan Maxima. The back seats folded forward for access to the trunk. I could put a foam matt across the seats and the floor of the trunk and that was very cozy. Nowdays, many vans have back seats that fold into the floor so the floor is level. This is perfect for car-sleeping, if you want to fly somewhere, rent one of these and save on hotels the entire trip. I find that RV parks are also good, usually fairly cheap and with nice showers, bathrooms, swimming pools etc, for about 1/4-1/3 the cost of a hotel.
