More About Detroit Hotels...

Music Makes the Motor City

Stay near the Motown Museum to explore the history of this born-in-the-USA music label that was home to Diana Ross & the Supremes, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson & the Jackson 5, and many more. The Inn on Ferry Street might stretch the budget a bit, but it is one of the few hotels close by. You might have better luck finding an Airbnb rental nearby, or staying downtown and taking the convenient city bus to the museum.

The annual electronic music festival known as Movement happens every year on Memorial Day weekend. Over 100,000 people come from all over the world to this massive festival, so cheap hotels might be harder to find.

It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood with Airbnb

For a neighborly feel, look no farther than Corktown, Detroit's charming historic neighborhood filled with cafes, restaurants, and B&Bs like the Corktown Inn or Honor & Folly*.

Or take a look at some options on Airbnb to rent a room, an apartment, or an entire house for your stay. You can even rent a Futuristic Sleeping Pod (aka a Toyota Previa van) in Corktown or stay in a working urban farm and guest house in the heart of the city.

Woodbridge is a family-friendly area near Wayne State University where you'll find plenty of Airbnb rentals.

It's Hostel, not Hostile

Detroit's popular hostel, which is not only for youth, is Hostel Detroit* in Corktown. The Hostel was listed in Curbed Detroit's list of 18 Essential Detroit Hotels. The hostel can pair guests with a local "ambassador" to show them local sights.

Be sure to ask whether the Pink Flamingo mobile food truck is planning to park nearby. They set up shop in an empty lot with a fire pit and neighbors, locals, and hostel guests mingle with a drink while their kids play nearby.

Bringing the Kids? Look for a Pool.

No matter what brings you to Detroit, if your family is with you, a pool is a great way to relax, exercise, and wear out the kids. Finding cheap hotels in Detroit with a pool is a snap with Hipmunk's search filters. The iSleep Inn Motel in Windsor, just across the river (and across the Canadian border) from downtown, offers one of the cheapest rooms in the city that includes a pool. But be warned: it's an outdoor pool. If you crave a cheap hotel with an indoor pool in Detroit, the Stay Inn and Suites in Rivertown should fit the bill.


Cheap hotels in downtown Detroit are harder to find, but not impossible. While there are some independent hotel bargains available, if you want to stay in a national chain, the Holiday Inn Express or Crown Plaza Downtown Detroit Riverfront are good options. Bonus: both have indoor pools.

Casino Style

If you are looking for cheap hotels in Detroit with a jacuzzi, you might not think about the luxury casinos, but you may be able to find a good deal - or even a complimentary room if you a big spender - at the Greektown Casino, Motor City Casino, or MGM Grand Casino, particularly if you book at the last minute or in low season. 

Stuck at the Airport? Or Need an Airport Hotel for an Early Flight?

For cheap hotels near the Detroit airport, you will find a good number of bargain options. All the major chains are represented, with Rodeway Inn, Knights Inn and Howard Johnson at the lowest price point.

Cheap Hotels and Big Fun in Detroit, Michigan

Detroit is the quintessential comeback city, and it offers a world of fun for little cost. To find a cheap hotel in Detroit, stay during winter and look to Greektown.

Winter Stays in Motown Equal Big Savings

Detroit's winters are cold and snowy, so budget-minded travelers can find some cheap places to stay during January-March.

Casinos Offer a Lot for a Little

Detroit casinos serve up 24-hour fun. The MotorCity Casino and Greektown Casino Hotel offer fabulous food, exciting gaming, and enjoyable entertainment for very little cost.

In addition to the casino, Greektown offers affordable lodging like the Atheneum Suite Hotel, a budget-priced all-suites hotel with free breakfast.

Business travelers also appreciate the Westin Book Cadillac Detroit's indoor pool and great location in the city's entertainment district.

Affordable Transportation Takes You There

Detroit is historically a car town, but today the best way to get around is the Detroit People Mover (DPM), an automated light rail system. Fares are an economical $.75.

Visitors fly into the Detroit Metro Airport. Airport taxis run about $45 to downtown.

Canada is across the river, so if you plan to cross the bridge, don't forget a passport.
