You might be lucky to get somewhere like the Le Jolie in Williamsburg for under $200, it'll be tough though.

The best bet is the Super 8 in Park Slope, that's always cheap.

Note that Park Slope and Williamsburg are nowhere near each other.

Both are great areas to both visit and live in. [I live in Park Slope]. Both areas are loaded with great restaurants as well as great bars. Both are lively during the day as well as after dark. There is easy transportation to Manhattan from each.

Williamsburg has a hipper younger vibe and is somewhat livelier than the Slope. It is famous for the mind boggling annoying Hipsters that proliferate in the area. The Slope has nicer blocks and is near stuff like Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Gardens. It is more famous for families and the "Stroller Mafia."

The Slope may have a greater variety of budget hotels. I would agree with the Holiday Inn Express [On UNION not on BUTLER] Street as well as the Super 8. Both seem to be just fine. I would avoid the Holiday Inn on Butler as well as the Fairfield as both are somewhat too close to the housing projects for my taste.
