lighting in hotel

I'll be shooting a low budget commercial for hotel. Shots will be in bedrooms, restaurant, sauna and conference hall. I have $250 to spend on lighting, dont want to buy anything, just rent. I have access to pro lights and rental is quite cheap, this amount of money should make it. I want it to look natural.
I know just basic things about 3 point lighting. What lights should i use for this project?

i can choose between: Arri 650w, 1000w, 2000w; Cinepar 12000w, Arrisun 6000W, Dedolight 100w, Kino flo 4" and some more...

the hotel is not the biggest one, quite small...

Andzei, I have shot a lot of hotels, rent the arri 650, but also rent a chimera to diffuse the light and keep it soft to give you the warm inviting look the hotel wants. if you send me an email, I can send you some clips to show you what I mean.
Also check out my demo reel on my website, it has hotel clips in the dvd section.
