Blue Moon Guesthouse
Lafayette, LA
The Blue Moon is one of those cool in an underground Parisian nightclub kind of way. It's a hostel, so there's a community kitchen and bath. You share food cabinet space downstairs with whoever's backpacking across the United States from Ireland. But it has the best musical entertainment in Lafayette on Friday and Saturday nights, and is the preferred place to stay for the bands. 
The Gershwin Hotel
New York City
Some of the art and the sex museum next door will probably put off your typical puritan American - but so much the better in my book. We stayed in the dorm rooms which were fine for the price, everything worked to a reasonable degree. The hotel has an excellent location, right next to Madison Square Park and 5th Ave.
