No room at the inn for Eastside guests? Try these options

The arrival of summer visitors leaves many Eastsiders in a quandary. Do you squeeze the guests into your already cramped, two-bedroom, one-bath bungalow or direct them to a comfortable but bland downtown hotel or a convenient but questionable motel along Sunset or Colorado boulevards?  The vacation rentals section of Craigslist and the short-term rental website Airbnb might have suitable alternatives if you want to keep your guests close to but not in your home. Here’s a sample of daily and weekly rentals available to travelers:
