Cheap Hotels Are The Key To Vacation Deals

Jun 4, 2008
California is a grand state in more ways than one. Not only is it one of the largest states but it also has more tourist attractions and tourist destinations than any other single state in the Union. For some people, the only problem with vacationing in the Golden State is that they wish they had more time to take in all the sights. Often, when people are able to get rooms at cheap hotels they can afford to stay a bit longer and explore the state more thoroughly.

For most people who do not have the luxury of an unlimited amount of time and money to take in all of the sights and tourist destinations that California has to offer, the best way to go is to target a certain area where there are a number of different activities that appeal to everyone who is traveling on the trip.

Finding a cheap hotel is a good option as a "base camp," not only for the budget-friendly factor but because most of the vacation time is not going to be spent in hotel rooms but will be spent out enjoying the tourist attractions that you came to see anyway.

Many times people spend a lot of extra time fussing about the amenities in their hotel rooms and then end up barely doing more than sleeping, showering and changing clothes in the room. In that case, why not save some money by booking cheap hotels and put more cash in your pocket to use as you go out and about exploring all that the area has to offer.

There are many options for cheaper hotels all around California. The majority of these are still very nice, clean and comfortable places to stay. In most instances, the rooms found in low-cost accommodations have everything you need to be comfortable and usually include the extras, such as high-speed internet access as well.

Many of the cheaper hotels, especially in the Golden State, have pool facilities and often have laundry facilities on site. Having access to a washer and dryer to freshen up your wardrobe can be especially nice if you have tried to pack light but are staying for more than just a few days. The good thing is that the cost of the laundry facilities will be similar to taking your clothes to a Laundromat, but much more convenient, and also much cheaper than the laundry services of some of the more expensive hotels in the area.

When traveling around California, it is quite easy to find cheap accommodations quite close to all of the major tourist attraction destinations. Especially during the off season, rooms are abundantly available and hotels will even be fighting over you to get your business. In addition, there are many package vacation deals that you can find that will include your hotel rooms, your air tickets, your car rental and even the passes for the major theme parks that are nearby.

More and more, you will be able to find a selection of hotels that will cut their rates when you reserve a room for a longer period, usually for a week or more. There are extended stay properties, which qualify as cheap hotels because they offer exceptionally low rates for longer stays. The main trade-off is that a housekeeper won't visit your room daily, but for many people the savings outweighs that slight inconvenience.
