Where can I find cheap hotels this summer
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.
Las Vegas hotels are some of the least expensive in the country this summer, with an ADR (average daily rate) of $105 per night. Orlando hotels are also reasonably priced, with an ADR of $122 per night. Hotels in Portland (OR), Reno and Denver are also well under the average domestic hotel per night rate.
International hotels are more expensive than domestic, but there are still a few destinations with hotel deals. Check out Toronto, Bangkok, Copenhagen and Edinburgh. Bangkok is the king of cheap hotels this summer, with an ADR of just $64!

My name: Genevieve Shaw Brown. I also answer to Genny and Gen.
How I earn my keep: I work at Travelocity.
Greatest travel lesson learned: I travel for my job, but I've learned work is work, vacation is vacation, and it's best not to try and do both on one trip.
Fondest travel memory: There are so many... but a recent experience was being totally jet-lagged and waking up pre-dawn in Koh Samui, Thailand, and watching the sun rise with my husband on the beach. We talked about what all our friends and family were doing at that very same moment as the sun set back home in New York.
First thing I do in a new place: Peruse the local restaurants and map out my dining strategy for the duration of my trip. Dining strategy = eating at as many restaurants as humanly possible.
First thing I do when I get home: Put a push pin on the destination I just returned from on the map of the world that hangs on the wall above my couch.
Travel ambition: To cover that map completely in push pins.
My most beloved place in the whole world: Cockle Cove Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts.
