Suggestions for an inexpensive place to stay in Dubai? Is there such a thing?

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.

Trivago pops a $95 room at the Sheraton 4 points, $69 at a Ramada and a number of cheaper rooms at other hotels. Hostel World lists some cheap apartments, hotels, and hostels — rates comparable to major European cities. Looks like it’s doable on a budget if you hunt around.

Thanks oldlady. Looking to do a marathon in Dubai, next year, if I can stash the extra money.
