Which hotels on Amalfi Coast?

I always prefer to get a good hotel recommendation from a person who's been there, than to take my chances & book sight unseen.
My price range is no more than $150 for a double, and free parking hopefully. I'll arrive in that area in early September 2007.
The town's I'm interested in are Amalfi & Maiori. And I'd love to know about any reasonable priced restaurants or trattorias.

You could try checking out the Rick Steve's book on Italy for info on lodging. He has a chapter on Sorrento/Capri, and one on the rest of the Amalfi coast. He also rates restaurants.

Twill be a challenge to find room that is really nice at that price and parking to boot (sorry for the pun). We stayed in Casa Cosenza in Positano in May. We took the ferry from naples. Stops at sorrento, positano, amalfi, and on to salerno, or, reverse the route.

we had a villa in priano, but there are hotels as well, less touristy and
great restaurants, good prices, rent scotters ($30 a day) and ride to amalfi, the best time we had!

If you stay in Sorrento there are many reasonably price restaurants. Just look at the menu posted outside of each one. Don't forget to go down to the water and check out the restaurants there. Very reasonably priced, and wonderful food.

We just spent 4 glorious days in Massa Lubrense - 4 km past Sorrento on the tip of the penninsula. Hotel Bellevista is FABULOUS.
This was a perfect home base for exploring. We drove the entire Amalfi drive from here to Paestum (lucked out and had NO traffic!!) Then we went by ferry to Positano and Amalfi to explore those towns.

Massa Lubrense is a small, quiet fishing village. We fell in love and can not wait to return!

The restaurant at the hotel was great. The food was incredible - and since they get to know you, they treat you very well. I ordered spaghetti Pomodoro two nights in a row and the chef came out and asked if I wanted whole tomatoes instead of sauce the second night so it would be different.

The family really knows how to spoil their guests!!!

In May, we stayed at the beautiful Hotel Savoia in Positano in the suite on the top floor, with majolica tiles and a view of the hills and sea. We splurged. It was worth it. Our drive up to Ravello (Villa Cimbrone!) and down the Amalfi Coast to Paestum was lovely. In Sorrento, we stayed at Il Faro Hotel, which was basic, but convenient to catch the boat to Capri.

We took the big splurge and stayed at Ambasciatori in Sorrento. Remarkable views from back of hotel, garden, and hotel room.
