Is there anything better than stumbling home drunk and passing out in your bed? Yes. Stumbling into your hotel room after a night of partying downtown and passing out in a fresh, comfy hotel bed. Maybe taking the walk of shame into a hotel isn't your thing. Maybe your S.O. is making you sleep on the couch. Maybe you're more into celebrating things by chilling with a few friends for the night, or - the craziest option of all - maybe you're a visitor from out of town.
No matter what you might need a hotel room for, prices can get super expensive, so if you're just not down to venture deep into the triple-digit territory, here are some great affordable alternatives.
1. Auberge St. Jacques
Okay, think of a motel. Thought of one? Good. Are the rooms modern and clean? Is the service great? Is there a built-in banya sauna? Nope? Then maybe you're not thinking of the right motel. With all of these features and more, Auberge St. Jacques is pretty much one of the nicest motels Montreal has to offer. And to sweeten the deal? Prices start at roughly $95 a night.
2. Hotel de Paris
Adorable, pint-sized 'Budget Rooms' make the stay at Hotel de Paris super affordable. Although rates vary depending on the room and the date of check in, prices can start at about $89 per night. For a hotel that's located right on the Plateau (and about a 10-minute walk from Parc La Fontaine), that's a pretty sweet deal.

3. La Tour Belvedere
If you're a Concordia student, chances are you know what I'm talking about. That tall apartment building with the blue sign, literally five minutes away from the SGW campus? Yeah, not an apartment at all. In reality, it's a hotel - and a nice, modern one to boot. Although the lowest rate seems to be $75, like all hotels prices vary by date and room, so your best bet is always to check the website.
4. Hotel Celebrities
If theme rooms are your thing - and who are we kidding, theme rooms should absolutely be your thing - then Hotel Celebrities is the place for you. Although this cute, trendy hotel offers rooms of various sizes and themes (African-inspired hotel room anyone?) their most inexpensive room is the 'Tourist', which can begin at $49 depending on the day. If that's not your thing, you can book bigger rooms for about $89, depending on the date and package you select.
5. Quality Hotel Dorval
The quintessential Quality Hotel, located in Dorval near Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport. Perfect if you're coming in from out of town. Or if you've been partying at the airport bar. No judgment.
6. Hotel Bon Accueil
According to the website, room prices at Hotel Bon Accueil vary from $65-$95. The rooms are straightforward, affordable, and located right next to Berri-UQAM metro. This is pretty much what I call a win, my friends.
7. Hotel Le St. André
Solid rooms at a solid rate? Welcome to Hotel Le St. André. Depending on when you check in and what room you pick, you could be looking at a rate of about $99 per night. Bonus points? Old Montreal is a 15-minute walk. And if you're willing to front a bit more money, they offer guided cruise tours of the St. Lawrence. Who else dreams of being hungover on a boat, cruising Montreal's fleuve? Just me? Okay. Just me.

8. Chateau de l'Argoat
Chateau de l'Argoat is a charming, affordable hotel, with prices ranging from $95-$125 depending on the room and season. The best part? Probably its location. A 10-minute walk from all the bars and clubs on Prince Arthur and Saint Laurent, grabbing a room here should be the obvious choice to anyone who's visiting Montreal for its party scene. Or, you know. Anyone who doesn't feel like cabbing it all the way back home after a night of partying.
9. Hotel Quartier Latin
Looking for a good, affordable hotel on St. Denis? Look no further. Hotel Quartier Latin is located right in the heart of the Quartier Latin, so if the hustle and bustle of St. Denis is what you want to wake up to, then you're in luck.
10. Days Inn Montreal Airport
Okay, so this one is a little bit over budget. But for about $110 tax in, you can get a pretty decent hotel room situated near the airport. And since it's a Days Inn, you might just be able to swing a workout at the gym or a visit to that sweet, sweet pool.
