6000 points hotels in USA

As Choice does not have a normal list of hotels, maybe someone come across the lowest tier hotels of the chain worth 6000 points?

There was a 6000-8000 point hotel list on the old website (circa 2015), I even saved it, but it's pretty much useless now since many hotels have been deflagged, the redemption rates have changed many times and are still fluctuating on a whim.

I still do not understand why the chain does not have a comprehensive hotel list....

Maybe they themselves aren't sure which hotels are in their chain and which aren't. I have encountered many dead links on choicehotels.com leading to hotels that are long gone.

I agree with the others, there is no easily available resource. You have to manually search, one hotel at a time. Spoiler alert -- you probably don't want to stay in any US-based Choice hotel that only costs 6k a night.

I've stayed in several. They've been just fine. As with all Choice hotels, one has to read the reviews.

I would be skeptical of a 6,000-point hotel in Manhattan or the Chicago Loop or downtown San Francisco, but a 6,000-point hotel in, say, Gallup, NM or Cheyenne, WY or something may not really be all that out of line.

Note you can use the filters on the Choice website to expand the search radius to 99 miles. That helps when looking for cheap places to stay. I use that function all the time, because I do a lot of road trips and staying in rural areas where I don't need to be near any particular city and just want to stay at the cheapest place in a large area.

Well, I stand corrected (sort of). Just booked 2 nights at the Giacomo - Niagara Falls, an Ascend hotel and currently the #1 ranked hotel in the area on TA. Just for fun, I looked at the rates, and was stunned to discover I could book a king one bedroom suite for 20k, or 6k + 100. With the paid rate ~300 for the suite, those 6k Choice points are worth >3c/pp.. an absurd, almost Norwegian-level Choice redemption.
