Cheap Manhattan Hotels from $25 per Night
Some of the BEST discount NYC Hotels are located in central Manhattan and start at $25 per night. These accommodations are open to public, but are not always listed on generic hotel travel websites or they may be listed as ‘specialty lodging.’ While you may have to compromise to stay in one of these hotels, like a shared bathroom, no television or elevator, you cannot beat the prices for these locations.
These cheap hotels are open to various groups, such as military, religious, non profits and other specialized NYC Visitors and they are some of the best NYC hotels you’ve never heard of…
NYC Soldiers Sailors Marines Club
Compare Rates: NYC Soldiers Sailors Marines Club
If you fall into these categories: Military Personnel of the United States and its Allies (Active Duty, Reserve, Guard, Veterans and Cadets, and members of the Police Department, Fire Department, and Emergency Medical Services), you can stay in one of the best discount NYC hotels, in a GREAT location for rates ranging from $65 (per person per night) to $160 for a VIP Room. Please note, this is more like a B&B or Hostel than a hotel, but it is a very inexpensive place to stay if you fit their criteria.
If traveling with a mixed party, where not everyone can stay at the SSMAC Club, then just next door is the Shelburne NYC, which has great burgers at their restaurant, Rare, and killer rooftop views from their Rare View Rooftop Lounge. Three blocks away are more discount NYC hotels, such as Dumont NYC, which has Studio, junior and single bedroom suites, each with a kitchenette, as well as a great fitness center.

“Our 84-room guesthouse is located at the corner of East 15th Street and Irving Place in Manhattan (on the same block as your very own NYC Insider, so you KNOW it’s a great location). The mission has come full circle to serve seafarers and asylum seekers, drawing upon a long tradition of hospitality and service among the Swedish and German peoples, extending to people of all nationalities, cultures and faiths.”

Penington Friends House
Penington Friends House is generally for long term residency, but occassionally has 1-3 month options available. This adorable brownstone is RIGHT across from my apartment and the only reason I know it exists is watching all the people go in and out with luggage all the time. It’s hardly listed anywhere online but it is a little gem in NYC and just down the street from the Seafarers & International House.
215 E 15th St, New York, NY 10003 (Gramercy)
