Looking for free or cheap hotel management software

Has anybody found any free or cheap packages for a hotel frontdesk?

It should be able to:

store customer data
Sotre booking information
handle multiple rooms
Have adjustable price rates
Include a "per person per night" charge method

I don't want a package used for online booking as most are.

I have tried PHP-residence but it could only charge per night, not per room.

Another feature which would be great would be to have its databse stored on a network server so multiple locations can access it.

If anyone knows of any, or can find any please reply; any help is appreciated.

I haven't looked for the specific application that you ask about but here are a couple of places to look.

These are popular open source repositories. Be sure to check the project status before you try a particular application. If the project status is 'planning' or 'alpha' then it is probably not worth downloading. On the other hand most of the projects will have their status listed as 'beta'. Most applications never get past the beta stage but are very useful anyway.

Ok, I have decided upon PHP-residence; I wish there was a nicer skin for it though, I could probably rewrite one but it is too much stress.
