Some of us, unless it's a special occasion, find that forking over $300 just to sleep is absurd.

Many of us are carefully keeping tabs on our money, so realistically, spending scads of cash on a gorgeous hotel room with a bed the size of Delaware and a large screen TV may not fit in with your budgetary situation. Can you still order up porn on a hotel TV? I was just asking for a friend. If you're just passing through and need to spend the night in Danbury or if your daughter's room is across the hall from yours and you REALLY need some mom and dad private time, I have some suggestions for those who are trying to do that Dave Ramsey budget-pay down debt thing.
