Do any apps/services exist for something like this?
I'm a commuter and live outside London. If I want to go out on a weeknight, I have a lot of effort to go to to get home in time to get any sleep and go to work. Is there any service similar to Uber where I could rent someone's spare bedroom overnight? If I get lucky, I either have to drag the girl to my place (average of 30-40 minutes) go to hers (about the same, I find) or spring for a hotel.
I could find somewhere more convenient eventually, but if I could pay someone for the privelege of using his bedroom for a one-night stand and a shower, and a place to get to work at a leisurely pace, it would be even better. Would airbnb or similar sites allow for this? Say, the same night each week?
If not, someone start a website-budbaxter.com isn't taken?

The closest thing I've heard to that is AirBnB, but each place varies - some people don't like to rent out a room for just one night, and certainly not for just a few hours. You could try couchsurfing.com, but I don't think people who do that expect or want you to be bringing other people along for the ride.

You are basically talking about AirBnB for love hotels.

I think it is different enough from AirBnB to be viable, but in your place I would look into why love hotels don't exist in your area already before considering this seriously.

If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.

Breather, but don't think it's in London yet.

Also, Hotels Tonight has decent last minute hotel room hookups.
