Although I normally carry a tent, given the choice, I will usually opt for a real bed if it is reasonably priced.  This page contains information on some of places I have stayed that I feel obliged to mention because of the combination of service, price, location or bike friendliness.

I only list places that really make an effort and most of the places recommended are unaware I have even listed them. Hopefully you will receive the same service I did, but please let me know if you have any feedback to add.

France FJT - 'Le Vénasque' - 3 Rue de la Résidence, BP 158, 31804 Saint-Gaudens, France Highly recommended!

Yes its a hostel and yes its basic, but all the rooms seem to be singles with en suite facilities and plenty of power sockets, so it feels more like a hotel (apart from providing/hiring your own sheets).

Also has restaurant facilities, so you can get a nights sleep, dinner and breakfast for under 20 euros!
