    I know of a room in a place near the ferry terminal where 2 Indonesian domestic helpers live. They rent it out for 150 a night. PM me with the travel date if interested and I will see if it is free.
    If you plan to stay in a cheaper hotel, I believe it will be from about 300, but weekends (Fri-Sat) are more expensive.

    It's usually cheapest to just hunt around at the Hong Kong ferry Terminal and see who has the best 2 day package including hotel. Booking a hotel by yourself will work out to be the most expensive, there are a number of 2 day/weekend package deal agents at the ferry terminal, and in my opinion, if you are looking for the cheapest possible deal, that will be it...

    You won't be dissapointed, unless you're the type that wants to pay peanuts, and expects 5 star treatment.. You get what you pay for, but they'll have something pleasant available, I'm sure...

    Avoid the Central Hotel ( 新中央酒店 ) at any cost. It is a dumphole. They don't even let you view the room for that reason. It will not be on offer at the ferry terminal.

    Out of the budget hotels, the East Asia Hotel ( 東亞酒店 ) is one of the best.

    I believe you can get it at the ferry terminal for around 300 if not on a weekend/pre holiday.

So if money is really an issue over time and you can control yourself not to want to get rich instantly, this may be a way to save 150 bucks.
    Thanks for the info. Although it's not something we'll take up - an hour in a smoky casino is not our idea of fun!

    if you want something nice and resonably priced (around 800 MOP) in a "remote" but cute location you could try Poussada de Coloane on Cheoc Van beach in Coloane:

    I was looking at :

    and
    http://www.hoteltaipa.com/eng/index.htm

    450-550/night is my budget.
