There's travel talk everywhere about how expensive it'll be to fly and drive this summer, so there has to be some savings somewhere, yes? The most obvious place will be in hotel rates, and so our gift to you this week will be one hotel a day that comes in under $100 a night.

Now, we're not saying every place will be of Ritz quality, because then it would be...well, the bloody Ritz. But the places will be nice enough for you to sleep at night.

Our Pick: Best Western Kuta Beach, Bali

Sure, it may cost you to get to Indonesia, but after you do, you can save a grip of cash on just about everything from food to lodging. That's why we chose this hotel, which opened in 2011. It has an American brand name, so there's a corporate standard that's adhered to. Still, reports say there's nothing box-cutter about this place near Kuta, a popular Balinese beach town, and we like that.

Most guests rave about the rooftop which is a great spot for panoramic views of Kuta and the Indian Ocean. The infinity pool there is good for a dip, but not for laps, but you'll find most people taking in the sunset and sipping on Bintang beers.

We hear some kvetching about rooms being a bit tiny, but for rates beginning at $69 in low season ($88 in high), we're thinking some folks should be spending less time in their rooms and more time enjoying Bali!
