Default cheap hotel anyone?

I remember awhile back a few people mentioned a few places which were nice and not that expensive but I can't seem to find the posts.

Heard that Travelodge is introducing GBP8.00 rooms in the next days all over Britain...The only place cheaper is a metro bench...

Depends if you want to sleep at all...................

Everyone knocks the good old Golden Sands places but I've always found they lived up to a decent standard............ there's a few decent places round there (in the bit between Ramada/Standard Chartered and Burjuman) - I found a couple by searching the interweb at various times over the years.

I heard on the radio one of these generic cheap hotel chains in Internet City advertising rooms at about 450 Dhs a night including breakfast. Can't remember which one. Thats about as cheap as i've heard it during the winter so far.
