Avoid the Summer Months

Cleveland's peak tourist season runs from the middle of May through August, when children are out of school. Travelers who want to score the lowest hotel prices should visit in winter and early spring. Prices drop between January and April because of cold weather.

For a comfortable compromise, try the shoulder season between September and January. The summer visitors have left, but holiday festivities still offer plenty to do. In September, average temperatures in the low 70s create the ideal environment for outdoor activities. By October, temperatures drop to the low 60s, but the vibrant fall foliage is a must-see.

Fly Into CLE

Eight airlines service the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE). Serving nearly 9 million passengers a day, this bustling hub is the most convenient flight option for Cleveland visitors. The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority provides transportation service from the airport to downtown Cleveland. Additional routes can take visitors to nearly any destination in the city, at affordable fares under $3 per person.

Several airport hotels offer shuttle service to and from the airport, including the Hampton Inn Cleveland Airport and Cleveland Airport Marriott.

Head West for Cheap Rates

Cleveland has three major districts, each with its own flavor. The downtown Cleveland district borders Lake Erie and includes popular sports attractions such as Progressive Field, FirstEnergy Stadium, and Quicken Loans Arena. Visitors who aren’t in the mood for a game can check out the Great Lakes Science Center or Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Cleveland visitors will find several cheap hotels with pools, such as The Hilton Garden Inn Cleveland Downtown and DoubleTree by Hilton Cleveland Downtown – Lakeside.

Travelers looking for culture and arts should head to east Cleveland, home to The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and Case Western Reserve University. Most area hotels surround the campus and adjacent Cleveland Clinic hospital. One of the area's unique lodging options is Glidden House, a boutique hotel built in 1910.

The cheapest hotels in Cleveland are on the west side of the city, near the airport. The America’s Best Value Inn, for instance, offers an unbeatable bargain, and amenities such as a continental breakfast sweeten the deal.

Enjoy Bargain Prices with Cleveland Room Shares

Airbnb lists more than 50 room shares and home rentals in the Cleveland area. Most are located downtown, where hotel prices are typically highest. Room shares here are cheaper than at nearby hotels. Many home rental prices are comparable to hotel rates but offer an excellent option for large parties and guests anxious to save money by eating in rather than at restaurants.

Try the Cleveland Hostel for Atmosphere

The Cleveland Hostel offers both private and shared rooms. Private room rates are comparable to room shares in the area and only slightly less than hotels. A bunk in one of the shared rooms is more affordable. The real draw is the unique hostel atmosphere where travelers can barbecue on the rooftop deck, rub shoulders with other travelers in the shared kitchen, or relax in the cozy lounge.
