Abbey Farm b&b: Ideal for airport if you have a car.......
Abbey Farm is just off the M69 motorway, about 20/25 minutes' drive from Birmingham airport.
As well as an excellent place for an overnight stay before or after a flight it is also a really good base for exploring the Midlands of England. Coventry, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick, Leicester and many other places are all within easy reach. Also good for accommodation for NEC and NIA conferences/activities/concerts
It is run by my friends, so I haven't actually stayed there (it's only 15 minutes away from my house) but I do strongly recommend it (and my relatives have loved staying there).
Jon and Sally Slee have built their lovely house from the remains of an old barn, and rooms are beautifully decorated. There are a couple of self-catering units as well, created from old outbuildings (one of which has a skylight over the bed, so you can lie and watch the starry sky). The garden is beautiful.
They keep sheep, and grow asparagus and strawberries. There are lovely walks around the farm itself (and the adjoining land), with woods and ponds and birds to see, and an excellent pub serving good food within easy walking distance (always useful to know!).
You will get a truly excellent 'full English' breakfast cooked by Jon...I know, I've had several!... but you can just have cereal, fruit, bread, preserves etc if you wish.
Rates are very reasonable and you could not hope to find a more friendly and welcoming couple.
Have a look at their website info/booking .....but be warned, their fame is spreading and they quickly get booked-up.

Days Inn Birmingham East: Not impressed
I would not recommend this hotel at all, we had a reduced rate as were were part of a group there but i would not be impressed to have paid the full rate. The staff were not friendly or helpful, did not tell me what time breakfast is served and i asked if a travel cot was in my room as i had requested one and was told 'i dont know' and that was it, no offer of help or what to do if it wasnt there, and on checkout i wasnt asked if everything was alright with my stay, receptionist was too busy chatting to her friend who was standing there. Room was shabby, curtains hanging off the wall, 3 lights not working, wires showing on one of the lights, says power showers on the websites but they are just mixer tap showers which seriously need descaling. no soap in the holder. Plenty of parking but nothing else good to say about this hotel, we only stayed there for a family party but wont be staying again.

Copthorne Merry Hill: A great weekend break
The Hotel is fantastic, it is situated 2 minutes walk from the meery hill shopping centre and 1 min from pubs clubs and bars including a very nice weatherspoons. Try and get a room with a city view, although very nice views from the waterfront rooms it can get a little noisy from the pubs on the waterfront. The breakfast is first class, self serve buffet all you can eat and is very good quality. The resturant is very good and the service and food are excellent. I have stayed there twice now and would not think twice about staying there again.
The food is first class, there is a gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and the hotel is spotless.

Birmingham City Council's Short Breaks website: Cheap Accomodation
Whilst not strictly accommodation in itself, this website has some fantastic deals for rooms in hotels in Birmingham - do have a look if you are coming here as you will pay an awful lot more if you go to the hotels direct and you know that the deals are genuine as it is the City Council that runs the site!

Hotel The Mailbox.: Hotel The Mailbox.
50 pound/night for a big double room in the weekend, something like 65 during the week.
The bar stayed opened till 3 am on Thursday night, which was brilliant.
Next to the hotel are some good bars where you can dine as well, overlooking the canal. On the other site is a posh shopping center.

My favourite (and cheapest for...
My favourite (and cheapest for city centre) is the Travel Inn, but going out of town along the Hagley Road, you pass numerous large and smaller (and cheaper) hotels. They predictably get cheaper the further away from town you get.
£40.95 per room per night
Right in the centre of the renovated canal district, with loads of pubs and restaurants on your doorstep. Nice view over the canal, if you're lucky, and ample free, safe parking outside in carpark.

We stayed first in the YMCA...
We stayed first in the YMCA hostel in Stratford upon Avon.
It was not very good and the food was really BAD! Never go there, even Mc Donalds is better.
The beds were ok, but it was noisy and the showers were not clean.
The second day, we stayed at the youth hostel in the mainstreet of Stratford upon Avond and that was well, even crappier, but much more fun!
We had the toproom, with just brickwalls and some green plastic for the roof. We could see the sun and the moon and were awakened by the birds sitting on the roof at 5 in the morning.
Also, there was some sort of disco, and I was glad that we had that toproom, because all the rest of the hostel could hear the music and when preparing for a fencing tournament one needs his/her sleep.
