Looking for cheap hotels in Atlanta? The city offers a wide range of accommodation, ranging from five-star luxury to far less salubrious establishments. But be careful: there is a fine line between “cheap” and “rat-infested”, so use my knowledge of the best cheap hotels in Atlanta, Georgia, to help you in your search.
As you’ll no doubt know, Atlanta is the capital and most populous city in the state of Georgia. There are something like 541,000 permanent residents, plus world headquarters of multinational corporations such as a famous soda manufacturer, Delta Airlines, AT&T Mobility, Georgia-Pacific, CNN, and Turner Broadcasting. You might be surprised to learn that Atlanta generates more than two-thirds of the Georgian economy and, measured purely in passenger numbers, Atlanta’s airport is the planet’s busiest.
You’d expect the hotels in Atlanta to make a killing and so finding good cheap hotels is not always easy. No problem: here are my four best recommended cheap hotels in Atlanta, Georgia:
