Tonight I was casually looking at booking a room for the night of our wedding at a well known hotel in our hometown, when I came across the price: $159/night.
I’m shocked! Is this a normal price for a hotel room? Grantid, the last time I stayed at a hotel (uh…3 years ago?), it was a Days Inn and it was $68 (but had a free breakfast buffet!). This hotel’s only special accomodation is a complementary USA Today.
I mean, sure, it’s a fancy place (or rather, the nicest place in our tiny hometown), but holy crap!
And if you’re curious, here’s the link to the hotel.

Yeah, that seems reasonable. Keep in mind I live in a major metro area… but that’s what I’m paying per night at a hotel an hour away for a friend’s wedding next month. As it’s an hour away, this hotel is not in a metro area!

I live in a small town and that’s the cost of a Days Inn around here.

For my wedding night? Without a doubt. I’ve spent much more than that for a hotel on a nice vacation! If I just wanted a place to crash on a road trip I’d find something cheaper.

That seems to be the norm for something other than a Motel 8. We paid $140 for our suite on our wedding night and it was at a comfort suites, but it had a HUGE jacuzzi tub and we don’t live near any major cities.

That’s what a cheap hotel costs where I live.

Looks like a nice hotel– $159 is not bad, seems about average.

That’s a pretty decent price for a hotel room, LOL when I opened this I expected you to be asking about $500+ rates or something.

I think that’s a reasonable price for that hotel. It looks nice.

Hahaha Can you tell I never stay in hotels? A grand trip for my Fiance and I is camping for the weekend a few hours away.

Wow! The hotel we stayed in was $450/nt (50% off for the bride and groom) so we paid $250/nt for two nights. $159 is a steal for me!

We’re paying $180 for a night in a cabin, with it own kitchenette, and lounge room. Not breakfast is included. BUT the hotel where we are having our reception is right next door (just across the vineyard) it over looks vineyards, hills, and the ocean.
For a hotel room that is pretty reasonable in a built up metro area.
Mind you were only paying $49 a night for a private villa in a resort with a private pool in Bali for our honeymoon. Crazy huh?!
