Hotels for the Cost-Conscious in Palm Beach County

Let's face it, the Palm Beaches are an expensive area to vacation. Restaurants seemingly have New York City menu prices, beach parking can range up to $5/hour, and plus, you probably spent a good bit arranging travel down to the sunny Treasure Coast. Surely there must be a way to keep some of that hard earned dough in the CDs and savings accounts while still allowing you and yours to have a great vacation. 

Enter budget hotels; the Palm Beach/West Palm Beach area is full of them. Whether they are the older models that used to dominate the area, or the fresher Holiday Inn Expresses of the world, the supply is plentiful. This helps, because if you know anything about economics, competition leads to lower prices. When budget hotels compete, you win. 

When you vacation to the Palm Beaches, you are going to spend most of your time outside, whether it's shopping, eating al fresco or swimming with the fishes in the crystal clear blue ocean. You most likely do not care about having over the top amenities in your hotel room. If you can sleep there, shower and maybe even get a hot breakfast, that's good enough for you. The ten hotels on this list are the best of the bunch when it comes to budget hotels in the Palm Beach West Palm Beach area.
