'Budget' hotels charging $1K per night for Super Bowl weekend

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

When the Super Bowl comes to Met Life Stadium at the Meadowlands in early 2014, thousands of visitors will pour into the area, filling up hotels.

Plenty of lodging options are nearby in northern New Jersey. But how much you're going to pay to be so close could be a problem.

We got curious and decided to compare hotel rates for the first weekend in September and Super Bowl weekend nearly five months away.

A Howard Johnson's shows $75 in September and $594 for the big game weekend.

The Days Inn on Tonnelle Avenue in Jersey City shows $132 in September and then jumps to $1,170 on Super Bowl weekend.

The chains aren't breaking any laws by increasing their rates; in fact it's to be expected, said Lisa Fickenscher of Crain's New York Business.

The Hanover, Maryland casino held a similar recruitment effort in January when The Atlantic Club shut down.
