Often you get what you pay for, but this list will help you to know how to get the low price you are seeking and yet still enjoy a stellar lodging experience.
Atlanta is home to so many great tourist locations, whether it be Turner Field, CNN Center, Stone Mountain, Underground Atlanta, or a myriad of other choices. There's also a myriad of hotel choices in Atlanta, which is great because you are in control of your hotel experience. At the same time this can leave you feeling overwhelmed, especially when you are on a tight budget. Some worry that if they book a place with a low price they will end up with a bad experience. Below we share our list of hotels in Atlanta that are more affordable than many and where you are likely to still have a good experience as well.
Although the prices of these hotels should vary based on the time of year you are looking to stay, number of guests, deals you find, and sizes of beds and rooms, these hotels should be much kinder to your bank account than many of the other options available.
1. Super 8 Motel/ Decatur/ Downtown Atlanta
The Super 8 Motel is a motel where kids ages 17 and under stay free with an adult, and as an added bonus, they provide an 8-piece SuperStart breakfast so that you'll be ready to go enjoy your day without having to drive bleary-eyed to find a place to eat in the small morning hours. And beyond the services the motel provides, you will find that the decor is visually appealing and up-to-date.
Located right on the outskirts of Downtown Atlanta, this Motel 8 is also located near the MARTA rapid transit stop, so you can easily get to where you are wanting to go. The location also provides easy and close access to so many popular places. If you go by car, you can be to Downtown Atlanta in a matter of minutes.

They have a few common areas throughout the hotel and a small courtyard where you may want to spend some time when it's nice out.
