Best Value Hotels in America

With all of the organization required, a holiday can become a source of stress. Throw in flights and/or gasoline, food expenses and rising accommodation rates, and the cost alone may cause your blood pressure to soar. That is why we have created GAYOT's Top 10 List of Value Hotels in the U.S. — we feel that a vacation should be relaxing from the moment you start planning it. From sea to shining sea, each accommodation selected for this list offers more than just good value. It might feature a spa with gorgeous water views, prime access to the best a city has to offer or freebies such as breakfast and evening cocktail hours. Whether you're seeking a relaxing rural, vibrant urban or laid-back island escape, we will make sure you have plenty left over in the budget to savor the best your destination has to offer.
