Seattle-Area Budget Hotels Make the Visit Even Sweeter

Sometimes the words "budget" and "hotels" in the same sentence can conjure questionable visions. Thankfully, though, in Seattle, options abound for accommodations that are not only reasonably-priced but also pleasant, clean, well-situated and enjoyable enough that visitors consider coming back time and again. Seattle is already an affordable destination, thanks to the plethora of free attractions and no-cost cultural events that abound (think parks, beaches and museums that offer free entry on certain days of the month). Restaurants and bars also cater to those wanting to keep tight reins on their wallet by offering happy hour food and drink deals (that sometimes come about multiple times in one evening).

Lodgers will be thrilled to learn that there are also many budget choices as to where to stay throughout the city (and, in some cases, a little bit beyond). Whether you're looking for accommodations close to Sea-Tac Airport (convenient for early or late-night flights), or you're wanting to experience a bit of the city's neighborhood culture (like College Inn in the University District, for example), you'll find an option to suit every need. Regardless of where you choose to hang your hat at night, rest assured that you'll be in good hands, and your stay will likely not feel long enough.
