    Default How much does it cost a night where you live?

    Just for fun. If you had to turn where you currently live into a hotel room rate, how much would it cost?
    Step 1. Round off your current rent to the nearest $50 whole number, then add 10% because filthy people are staying in your place.
    Step 2. Divide by 30

    Country:
    Area:
    Cost per night:

    For me:
    USA
    Texas
    $34 a night .. I have the rating of a Super 8.

    We paid $6.5K cash for our house. So if this was a motel, you could probably stay for free if the crackheads were feeling friendly.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    $30

    My husband and I rent a house owned by his parents (they don't live with us). We shall be out and on our own soon! I can't wait! The other person that rents there is my husband's brother and I won't even begin to tell you how living here is a far cry from a deal! I never knew how filthily and lazily (and alcoholically, and mentally...) people could live until I moved in with my brother in law three long years ago. On a cleanliness scale of 1-10, I'm a 9 and he is a 0.

    Around $40 a night if I count the rent for the whole apartment, but only $20 if I just include what I pay, since I have a roommate.

    Yeah, we pay absurdly cheap rent for Boston.

    $1500 monthly rent / 30 nights = $50 / night

    That's for about an 800 sq ft. single built in the 50s.

    I don't get your 10% add-on thing...

    Hotels are way more expensive, mostly cuz you don't buy in bulk.

    The hotels in my area are generally $300-$500+ / night.

    Pfft. That's an exaggeration unless you live in luxury accommodations on Ocean Blvd. Even some of the smaller motels ocean front run more like 150-200. You can have an Ocean blvd. one bedroom corporate apartment starting about $3500 a month, or about 350 per night, and THAT INCLUDES ALL UTILITIES AND WEEKLY MAID SERVICE.

    There are hotels in Santa Monica proper that run 70-100 a night, one in particular that's very clean and only about 2 miles from the beach that's about 65 bucks a night, week nights, in a residential neighborhood.

    The hostel starts at around 35.

    I don't like this kind of exaggeration, because it would scare people away from Santa Monica, one of the best cities in the entire world, I think it's the best part of L.A.

    Yes, rent is expensive (and if you choose to live in Santa Monica, proper, you voluntarily pay higher taxes to live in an extremely green, eco-friendly, progressive coastal town, which is part of the rent price) but don't tell people that rooms are 300-500 a night. Sure, yes, they are if you're staying at the Georgian.

    So you're paying pretty good rent for SM, proper.

    € 8,50 a night.
    Nunspeet, The Netherlands.

    Nice, spacious second floor corner apartment with attic overlooking a quiet and relaxing neighbourhood.

    I live dirt cheap in style.

    Although if any of you would rent anything here, the cheapest you could probably get is 16 euro a night to live in a caravan or something. But we've got this system here where you can sign in the town you're working and if you wait long enough and save up points while waiting, you'll eventually get really cheap offers on places to stay that through housing corporations. I had to wait 3 years though.

    The rent is without energy costs and such though. In total, I think I'm at about 12 euro a night or something.
