Weekly hotels—sometimes referred to as extended-stay hotels or apartment hotels—might be the answer to your housing situation if you're new to an area, you're only moving there temporarily, you have low income and can't afford your own apartment, or if you have an eviction dogging your credit and your apartment applications are constantly being denied.

You might be tempted to hit the roommate section on Craigslist, but what you need to know is that it can be awkward and unsafe living with someone that you do not really know.

You can also forget about crashing at a friend or family member’s house because you can very quickly wear out your welcome—you do not want to cramp someone else’s style.

You'll have your privacy if you live in a weekly hotel. You will not be a burden to anyone, and there is nothing better than having your “own place” to crash after a long day at work.

How to Find Cheap Weekly Motels Near You

To save you time and effort, I've compiled a list of weekly motels and hotels that usually offer affordable rates and decent lodging:

There are weekly hotels in the seediest locations that will run you only $99 to $120 a week, and then there are gorgeous extended-stay hotels that will cost you between $325 to $425 a week.

However, hotel quality and rates can vary from location to location. A quick Google search of "extended-stay hotels near me" will turn up a map of your location with nearby extended-stay hotels. Of course, you can also use travel sites like Travelocity or Booking.com.

Things to Consider Before Staying at a Weekly Hotel

There is somewhat of a trick to finding weekly housing. You will need to find an extended-stay hotel that is maintained well enough so that you will want to stay but affordable enough so that you actually can stay.

Just as almost anything else in life, the more money you pay, the more quality you'll get.

1. Safety (neighborhood, security)

Do your research. Check to see if the area around the hotel is walkable—especially if you don't have your own car and need to get groceries, go to work/school, etc. Also see how secure the hotel is. Does it have a history of break-ins or other criminal activity? Cheap motels and hotels are often situated in sketchy areas, so although the cheap rate may be attractive, consider your safety the number one priority.

2. Cleanliness

Cheap hotels may not have the best hygiene and health standards. Problems like bed bugs, roaches, mold, and dirty furniture are not only off-putting, they can also lead to a number of health problems. Spend some time reading reviews from past tenants. If possible, go check out the place to see if it is tolerable.

3. Convenience (near restaurants, shopping, etc.)

Whatever your reason for staying at an extended-stay hotel, convenience is usually a big factor. You may want to look for a place that is closest to your work, grocery stores, or any other place that you plan on visiting frequently. This is especially important if you don't have access to a car. Being able to walk to the places you need to go can save you a lot of money on commute.

4. Amenities

Some contracts include free breakfast, housekeeping, free parking, and access to facilities like the fitness center and swimming pool. Consider whether any of these are a necessity—or something that you're willing to spend a little extra on. Read the fine print thoroughly before booking a stay to avoid any surprise fees.

Pros and Cons of Weekly Hotels

Pros
Cons
No credit checks
Small space
No leases
Limited kitchen
Low move-in costs
Internet can be slow
Utilities are included
TV channel selections are limited
Amenities (fitness center, pool, etc.)
Decorating is also limited
Already furnished
May reflect badly on your credit
Extended-stay hotels can be a great alternative option, but they are only temporary fixes, and there are many factors to consider before booking a stay.

5 Reasons You May Need an Extended-Stay Hotel?

1. You're New to the Area

Being a long way from home, it can take awhile before you really get to know the area. Which neighborhoods are the safest? Which areas are most convenient (e.g. for commute to work, shopping, school etc.)? Rather than rushing to any decisions, staying in a weekly hotel can give you time to plan out the best possible living situation for you.

2. You Only Need to Move Temporarily

You may be a business traveler who is temporarily relocating for work, or you're just scoping out a new area to see if you like it. Your stay may not be long enough to find an apartment to lease or a house to rent, and it may not be short enough to book a hotel. Extended-stay hotels offer a flexible and cost-effective solution for people who only need to move somewhere temporarily.

3. You Can't Afford Expensive Moving Costs

Moving into an apartment can be expensive. Even if you can find affordable housing, you still might have to find the funds to pay for the up-front costs, like a high security deposit, the first month’s rent, and non-refundable application and administration fees—don’t you just love that whole “administration fee” nonsense that many apartment complexes charge?

4. You Have an Eviction on Your Credit History

Not having all of the cash up front is a hurdle in itself. But there can be an even bigger one: Many people do not know that it can be extremely difficult to get approved for an apartment if you have an eviction on your credit history.

Evictions stay on your credit history for seven years, and any time another apartment complex pulls your application, they will be able to see that negative mark.

Most complexes will flat out refuse to rent to you because, as far as they are concerned, you did not pay your rent to a previous landlord, so there is a high risk that you might do the same thing to them.

Even if you've learned your lesson after being evicted—and you swear you'll never let it happen to you again—unfortunately, you now have bad credit. You'll just have to roll with the punches.

Luckily, there are housing alternatives for people with an eviction on their credit, including looking for an affordable extended-stay hotels and motels that charge weekly or monthly.

5. You Have a Criminal History

Another reason you may not be able to get an apartment is if you have a criminal background. Many apartment complexes will check your criminal history. If you have a negative mark against you, the complex might refuse to rent to you.

We all know that the justice system is supposed to rehabilitate those who have committed a crime, but most of us also know that the justice system’s rehabilitation process does not work that well. You cannot really blame an apartment complex for refusing to rent to you if you have a criminal background, but you still need to be able to find safe and decent housing.

Final Thoughts

If you live in an extended-stay hotel, you are technically considered to be homeless in many states. Therefore, you might be able to qualify for low income assistance programs that can give you financial assistance to move into your own apartment if you can find one.

Finally, if you’ve checked out most of the options in this guide, and you still can’t find anything that suits your needs, perhaps it may just be time to relocate....Do yourself a favor and at least check out the link below to the Top 20 Cities in the U.S with the Lowest Rental Rates.

Good luck to you.

      Hi Rachelle,

      I’m in a situation where I need housing for my daughter (16th bday today), her father and myself. We are in Santa Clarita, CA. I can’t seem to find anywhere offering monthly rates. ESA (Extended Stay America) told me they no longer offer that option. Also, it would be amazing if we could find a place with two actual bedrooms instead of all sharing one small space.

      Thanks so much,

      Tami

      First thing I would do is suggest you do is check with your local laws to see if your state is one of the ones that is providing Eviction Protection right now, and if it is...stay right where you are, and don't go anywhere. If not, try the Woodspring Suites @ (412) 314-1600 . I wish you the best.

      I'm sorry to hear that you are living out of your car at a time like this. The cheapest daily rate that I see is going to be at the Quality Inn at around $42 per day - you can call and ask if they can cut you a deal on a weekly rate, they are located at

      1533 Ih-35 North, New Braunfels, TX 78130•(830) 643-9300.

      Also, If I had a little bit of money, right now, with all of this mess going on, I would try to save as much of it as I could. I'd buy water by the gallons, eat vegetables out of canned goods and STAY AWAY from people as much as possible...A hotel room is already full of germs...

      You might try to hook up with Bob Wells and find out where most his "caravan" are located and try to hook up with them. If you don't know who Bob Wells is, he is a person who has advocated for purposeful "mobile" living to get ahead of finances....copy and paste this link to see how this van dwelling community is dealing with COVID-19

      Hello Tracie. I'm sorry you lost your cards. I would suggest you that you can solve that situation immediately by getting a Walmart prepaid debit card today.

      There are Extended Stay America locations in Landover @ 9401 Largo Dr W, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774•(301) 333-9139 and Alexandria @ 200 Bluestone Rd, Alexandria, VA 22304•(703) 329-3399.

      A sometimes more affordable option might be Woodspring Suites at 240-760-1300.

      I wish you and your family the very best.

      Lavonne, I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, you won't find too much under $30 per night, anywhere. And, whatever you will find for that rate will be some place awful that you won't want to stay in. You didn't tell me where you're located, but if that is your budget you might want to think about saving your money and seeking a shelter in the area. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, but I wish you the very best of luck. Please let me know if you need help locating a shelter.

      Woodsprings Suites is the one I use on occasion. It was $45 a night and has a small kitchen and very safe. There a re a few in Orando and one in Kissimmee and one in Clermont which is the one I would look at since is cheaper and near your town. Also, try Air&B app. Good luck!

      Hi Carlos,

      Congratulations on getting a job! In the Houston, TX area there are Woodspring Suites and Intown Suites. In general, Woodsrping Suites are typically nicer than Intown Suites and surprisingly, their rates are usually around the same range. Good luck to you!

      It would be exceedingly difficult to find housing for a single person with a budget of only $800 a month, I can't imagine trying that with a family of 4. Quite honestly, you might want to look at public housing options, trying to get your name on the Section 8 list, or look to the shelters to see if they might have a program to help families. Realistically, your biggest task would be to raise your income. I don't know anything about your personal situation, but if you cannot work for whatever reason, you might want to look to online resources...

      Hello Art,

      If you are single, you should check out AirBnB and see what they have to offer. Cali isn't a place that has a lot of affordable anything, and extended stay hotels are not plentiful there, at least not the ones that are affordable... Good luck to you.

      Hi Rachelle,

      Relocating to Waco, TX. Family of 4 with a small 10 lb. dog with a budget of $800 monthly, while searching for permanent residence. Having a difficult time finding anything in that range that doesn't have an annual commitment. I even tried Air BNB but it's still well over $1200. Do you have suggestions?

      Hello Angel. There are Intown Suites located in Sheridan @ 2900 W Hampden Ave, Sheridan, CO 80110•(303) 789-2360 and there are two others located in Aurora @ 14090 E Evans Ave, Aurora, CO 80014•(844) 286-9157 and 2221 S Havana St, Aurora, CO 80014•(303) 283-8421

      These places aren't "luxurious" by any means, but they're available. I advise you call to the individual locations and ask what the weekly rate is AFTER taxes...

      Good luck to you!

      I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. If your income is only $250 per month, I"m not sure how you're going to manage, because most hotels cost much more than that, even the ones that aren't so nice. However, I do see that there is an Extended Stay America location near you, they are expensive though at around $425 per week, the least expensive option for you near you is the Intown Suites, 6651 Eagle Crest Dr, North Richland Hills, TX 76180•(817) 427-0543 - their rates are more reasonable, you can check to see what they have. The only other option would be the shelters, is there no one in the family to take your grandson in while you go to a women's shelter? My last piece of advice would be to look at van dwelling. I know it sounds crazy, but it's sometimes better than shelters and it sure beats the streets... Go to YouTube and search for "Van Life with a Kid" and look at what some other people are doing. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reply to this comment...

      Hello.

      I am being evicted at the end of this month 6/19. Ihave 2 grandkids that I am raising, we have been trying to get the homeless prevention places to help us but so far no luck, I lost my income and I am disabled, we currently are living on $250 per month. The places I have tried want to separate my 14 1/2 grandson from us, we just had thier little sister die a year ago and we wont be torn apart anymore than we have been. We are in Fort Worth Texas and I am now looking at these hotels can you give us any info to go on here? Thanks in advance.

      Cali is hard, because nothing is truly affordable there...which is why there are so many homeless people there...that being said, the chain, Extended Stay America operates there, they are somewhat more expensive than the average though:

      Extended Stay America Orange County - Huntington Beach

      5050 Skylab Rd, Huntington Beach, CA 92647•(714) 799-4887
