... where to go on a vacation.

Other than Iowa, of course.

as an antidote to these swanky 500-a-night little places, Travel ecstasy: Budget hotels from Berlin to Bali: Stay in Madras for $4, Tokyo for $37, or New York for $99. Excerpt from the book 'Cheap Hotels'

Nifty -- only one listed here in Montana, but does it look beautiful.

(begins counting pennies to stay at the Big EZ Hotel)

Although this is an attractively-designed site and reminded me a bit of the "Hip Hotels" books from Thames & Hudson... some of the phrases on the regional pages really distracted and puzzled me: "[T]he harshness of a city like Seattle", or the suggestion that the "South atlantic states" of the U.S. like Florida are "protected by the imposing presence" of the Appalachians. Huh?!?!

For the entire of "Southwest" Canada, which is Manitoba to BC, only 2 hotels were listed. Which makes it look very incomplete to me.

Stoatfarm, Seattle is harsh--our streets are paved with 40 grit sandpaper and there are sharp spikey things sticking out of most surfaces. Be careful if you come for a visit.

But if you do visit, this site does list a snappy small hotel in great location that many friends have happily stayed at . . . one branch of a prominent local hipster conglomerate .

What language was this site originally written in? I can't make out what some of the icons mean, and their filenames are no help because they're in another language.
