Philadelphia's Top Lodging Spots for When You're Watching Your Budget

Staying and playing in Philadelphia does not mean you have to drop a fortune on lodging. This interesting city features a variety of affordable overnight options that won't break the bank. Whether you're looking to keep costs down so that you've got more cash to see the sights, or want to spend that money on great restaurant meals, you've got choices. Some of those choices really deliver on comfort and quality basics, making you wonder why others spend so much more. If you don't need or want silly extras, then why shell out for them? Stay at a place that only charges you for the amenities and options you'll actually notice and use, and save the rest for other things that matter to you. Places like the Hampton Inn at the airport and Motel 6 Essington are stand-up options for guests looking to be close to transportation. If you'd be best suited with a place located right in Center City, try Four Points by Sheraton or Rodeway Inn. You know your agenda while in town, so set up your home base nearby and easily hop from one spot to another knowing you're well within your allotted budget, while not skimping on things that you need. Who says a trip to Philadelphia can't be affordable and enjoyable? You know better.
