If you’re planning a fun weekend (or week!) in Atlanta, you’ll be happy to know that the city has plenty of budget-friendly hotels which are clean, welcoming and in good locations. There are so many fantastic restaurants and nightlife options to explore, as well as numerous museums and art galleries, that saving some money on the hotel stay really can’t hurt! Check out some of these budget-friendly Atlanta hotels for the next time you plan to be in town. Just remember – it’s easy to spend over $250/night for a downtown Atlanta hotel, and spending anything less than about $115/night is not recommended in most cases, as you either won’t want to be in the neighborhood or the hotel won’t be that great. There are always exceptions though, such as these fine choices:
This cute boutique hotel is in downtown very close to the CNN Center and the Aquarium. The rooms are modern and cozily decorated, and there’s a good restaurant onsite. Prices are in the $150 range now, but go up quickly as springtime approaches. So book soon!
I’m partial to this hotel because it’s in my neighborhood, the Virginia Highlands. It’s very close to a lot of great restaurants and nightlife options. There are 80 rooms, and since the hotel was built in 1927, the building has a lot of charm – and I mean that in the best way possible. Prices are fantastic here – singles are about $90 and suites that have queen beds are only $110! This hotel is one of the city’s very few exceptions to the “don’t pay under $100/night” rule I try to follow.
The outside is definitely not very impressive, and there’s nothing to fancy about the inside, either – but you’ll find really clean, reliable accommodations here. And a great location! You can easily walk to things like the Fox Theater and the Georgia Dome. Rates are around $120 per night currently. The rooms are pretty big, and there’s a swimming pool.
You can’t beat the price for this hotel’s location, free wi-fi and free breakfast. The famous Margaret Mitchell house is a short walk away, as are the Georgia Dome and Centennial Olympic Park. Again, nothing terribly fancy here, but you’ll pay around $100 with tax, which is a very good deal in the downtown area, given the location. Clean and comfortable go a long way.
