budget accommadation

My partner and I will be in NYC 9-13th May. This is the first stop of a 3 week trip to the states so we are on a budget! Ideally we would like to stay in an apartment style accommadation but are happy to stay in a central guest house. I feel hotels are quite expensive and those which are within our price range seem very basic.Any help would really be appreciated!!

Thankyou

You'll need to look out of Manhattan. If flying into LGA or JFK, check the hotels in Long Island City.

None that I'm aware of. Average rates in Manhattan for those dates are $250+.

You MIGHT be able to get a private room with a shared bath at Chelsea International Hostel that would be close to your budget. Most of the other hostel-like hotels with shared baths are over budget.

Staying in a 12 bed shared dorm at Hosteling International would come to $110/night plus tax for the two of you.

Staying outside of Manhattan isn't so bad. You will be using the subway to get around anyway. Country Inn and Suites in Long Island City is just a little bit over budget at $130 (+ ~15% tax). Includes free breakfast and the room has a fridge and microwave.

$490 USD is that per night or for several days.

I think that is the TOTAL budget for the 4 nights.....somewhat unrealistic unless there is some creative bookkeeping they can conjure up.
