Any Cheap Motels in Manhattan? Outskirts?
Posted on Jul 02, 2013 by
My parents are coming out from Oregon (to Rochester NY) in May and we plan to take a trip to NYC (a first for all of us). We plan to stay for a week and mainly see the traditional sites in Manhattan.
Can anyone recommend budget friendly motels? They don`t have to be fancy (Motel 6 types are fine). Since we`ll be out most of the day, we just need a place to rest our heads... but we`d like it to be in a safe area with easy and safe access to the attractions. With what little research we`ve done, it appears the cheaper motels are on the outside of Manhattan, but we`re a bit afraid of unsafe subways since we won`t have a vehicle available and will need to rely on public transportation. Also, is the cost savings of staying outside of Manhattan worth the expense (and hassle?) of commuting in each day?
I`m anxious to hear your thoughts, experiences and recommendations as to whether you advise staying inside or outside of Manhattan, or specific motels you`ve found to be convenient and economical.
Thanks so much!
