If you’re looking for a bargain place to stay on your next trip, check out America’s Best Value Inn.

Among hotels, it offers the most bang for your buck, according to an analysis by Money released earlier this year.

America’s Best Value Inn was the winner in the budget hotel category. Its rooms cost around $75 per night, which is the lowest rate among the 25 budget hotel chains in Money’s analysis.

Yet, the chain earned the highest customer satisfaction rating among economy hotels from J.D. Power, a factor in Money’s rating.

Freebies that you’ll enjoy when staying at an America’s Best Value Inn generally include:

  • Continental breakfast
  • Wi-Fi
  • Parking
  • Premium TV and movie channels

In addition to America’s Best Value Inn, two other budget hotel chains earned honorable mentions from Money:

  • Baymont Inn & Suites
  • Clarion

In the midrange category, the three chains that were recognized are:

  • Drury Hotels (winner)
  • Hilton Garden Inn (honorable mention)
  • Home2 Suites by Hilton (honorable mention)

In the luxury category, the three chains that were recognized are:

  • Thompson Hotels (winner)
  • Kimpton Hotels (honorable mention)
  • Langham Hotels & Resorts (honorable mention)

Finding the right hotel for you

No matter where you decide to stay, a little extra legwork can cut the price you pay.

As we discuss in “8 Tips to Slash the Cost of Hotel Stays,” it’s important to learn about an individual hotel’s typical target market:

Tourist-oriented hotels tend to charge more on the weekends because that’s when they get more customers. Hotels that target local businesses and events tend to charge more midweek for the same reason.
