Travel Tip

How would "Andy a professional Traveler" find cheap rooms in the USA? I would buy a Lonely Planet guidebook for the USA, or maybe Roughguides.com, or maybe Let’s Go, nonetheless I would not travel in the USA without a guidebook. Oops, I probably would go to the Library and check out all three of them...

Travel Journal --- What is your travel problem?
I will write a Travel Tips with the solution

About five years ago I met up with a friend from Argentina here in the USA, we took a trip to Bloomington, Indiana to see Brown County while the fall leaves were turning brown. Every Hotel we visited was outrageous, I thought about it and said,
“Let’s go to a bookstore and read a guidebook.”

We opened a Lonely Planet to the USA in the bookstore, found the chapter that included Bloomington, found a cheap Hotel and went to the Hotel and got a room for half the price of the others.

In the USA, it is possible to check out one to three Guidebooks from a Library, go on vacation, then return the book after you return.

is my Internet solution to this situation, presently guidebooks are still the best way to find cheap room on Planet Earth. Yes, it is possible to find the stray hotel, however to consistently find cheap rooms, the guidebooks still are the best resource.
