I'm going to stay one night in Montréal (from 23/08 to 24/08) with my girlfriend.

I know that "what's the cheapest..." questions are not on-topic here, so I'm not going to ask about a particular place.

Is there a cheaper alternative to hotel? Also, what would you recommend regarding jet lag? I'm going to arrive by air around 4 PM, and the 24 will be a tough day for me (around 6 hours of jet lag).

    The jetlag question should be separate but assuming you are coming from Europe, don't worry too much about it, you will simply have a slightly longer day than usual and sleep easily. The trip in the other direction is probably going to be tougher.

Hostels (google them) are usually cheaper than hotels but you have to be wanting to be with other people.

Bed&Breakfast could is another suggestion (but usually not cheaper).

Try university lodging; they sometimes rent out student apartments in the summer (but at the time you will be here it will be probably be over).

For example, Université de Montreal: http://www.studioshotel.ca/

If really cheap, you could "couch surf" at someone's apartment (I don't approve it, so look for it yourself).

  • Hostels are what I was looking for (It seems so at least!). Thanks.

  • If you have transport (car) you could look into motels out of town. I stayed near Trois Rivieres, with my boyfriend, for the cost of to in a hostel in the city.

  • If you want a motel, no need to travel 1h30 to Trois Rivière!!!
