Where can I find cheap hotels this summer

Hi Karen,

Great question! I’m glad you asked and I’m sure many of our readers can benefit from the answer.

First, it’s crucial to know what the going rate for hotels actually is this summer. That way, you can make an educated decision when you’re shopping. Domestic hotels cost an average of $147 per night and international hotels cost an average of $187 per night. Use this data as a gauge to know if you’re getting a good deal.

Some of the best hotel rates this summer are actually found in some of the top destinations. That’s great news — it means you don’t have to travel to some godforsaken place to get hotel deals.
