Looking for accommodation can be overwhelming. There are so many options available when searching the internet, but are you really comparing apples with apples? Are you really getting value for money? Web searching for quality but economical (read cheap!) accommodation can lead you up the garden path and right into some rather undesirable looking options. Often cheap accommodation searches leave you feeling a little empty and wondering if you should pack your travelling plans in all together.
Sometimes your budget is limited, sometimes you are forced to travel for emergency reasons and sometimes you simply do not want to spend all your hard earned cash on a place to sleep. In saying that though, would it not be nice to have your expectation met or even exceeded? Would it not be great to think that the room rate has inclusions (free unlimited wi-fi, free car-parking free weekday newspaper) that spell value for money? Would it not be a wonderful relief to find a property that delivers.
With reviews circulating the internet or through word of mouth, highlighting less than perfect experiences in so called cheap accommodation, making a decision about a property can be fraught with anxiety. Do not fear though – cheap does not always
equal nasty! Looking for quality economical accommodation in Auckland does not need to be the domain of bad holiday nightmares!
Often when people think of “cheap accommodation” they first think of backpacking options. These types of accommodations often attract young travelers and do not cater for business people, families or perhaps older travellers who are looking for that more comfortable, personal feel. Formal hotel style city accommodation is not for everyone.
Not only do the big chains rarely have accommodation offerings to fit the smaller budget but they are large and impersonal. For some, who may not have been to a big city before, the thought of staying in central Auckland can be overwhelming. The noise,
the people and the traffic can feel exhilarating for a time but distancing yourself from the CBD can be a sensible decision – especially for those use to a quieter environment. For others, all they are looking for is a room – somewhere to stay that is super clean, has a great bed, a decent shower and air conditioning.
Whether you are travelling for business, pleasure or somewhere in between you probably don’t want to spend the majority of your travelling budget on your accommodation. That money can be better spent on doing and experiencing new things.
Have your considered a motel? Motels provide a great accommodation option at a fraction of the price of hotels and boutique B & B’s. A good motel will provide clean, comfortable rooms, off street parking and usually the rooms will have small kitchen facilities. This allows the budget conscious traveler to enjoy some creature comforts in a nice space for a portion of the price of a hotel stay.
