Detroit is far from a discount destination – its renaissance is bringing the city to life in dazzlingly new ways. No matter how you choose to do it – whether by watching a Lions game or eating your way through Corktown – it won’t cost much to savor this rising phoenix. Save your budget for a comprehensive taste of the Motor City by staying at one of these cheap hotels in Detroit, bookable on Culture Trip.

Trumbull and Porter Hotel, for boutique on a budget

Downtown digs at downright unbeatable prices are the norm at Trumbull and Porter Hotel. Sitting pretty between the scenic views of the Detroit River and the industrial-chic vibes of Corktown, you’ll get one incredible hotel deal in Detroit here. Whether you’re staring out at the city from the fitness center, admiring the custom art and furniture created by local artisans, or kicking back in the outdoor hangout area, you’ll find a special piece of Detroit everywhere you turn.

The Siren Hotel, for sports lovers

Sound the alarm for this Detroit hotel deal, sports fans: the Siren puts you so close to Little Caesars Arena, Comerica Park and Ford Field that you could almost follow the action from your window. These hip suites feel effortlessly cool, with bright terrazzo bathroom tiles and vintage furniture. No bargain-brand toiletries here; only custom products made exclusively for the hotel. Kick back in the bunk-style Hideout or the refined Chamber rooms – either way, the gourmet snacks inside are yours.

The LEO Collection Detroit, for saving dough

The LEO Collection is a cheap hotel in Detroit that’s only a ten-minutes drive from downtown – not that you’ll want to rush over. Idle for hours in your suite’s two-person whirlpool and save dough on dinner by making use of your refrigerator and microwave. You’ll also save on gym fees, as the fitness center is well-equipped and the mosaic-tiled pool will allow you to get your laps in.

Courtyard by Marriott Detroit Dearborn, for go-getting golfers

Go ahead and splurge on a round of golf at TPC Michigan; you’re already saving more than enough for green fees by staying at Courtyard by Marriott. The 3mi (4.8km) drive hardly uses any gasoline and a fueling breakfast won’t cost you much at the Bistro. The indoor pool and the gym, meanwhile, offer cost-free ways to warm up and cool down.

TownPlace Suites by Marriott Detroit Dearborn, for longer stays

This cheap hotel near Detroit is so close to the Henry Ford museum that a cheap rideshare is all you need – just make sure it’s a Ford that’s dropping you off. You’ll hardly spend a fortune riding back and forth, especially if you save on food costs by cooking in your suite’s full kitchen. Breakfast is already covered; the grocery across the street will provide everything else. If you’re going to fork over a few bucks to eat out, a real coney hot dog at Kerby’s Coney Island is a must.

Best Western Greenfield Inn, for a little quirky charm

Best Western offers best value with this wallet-warming Allen Park hotel. The Victorian-style architecture and the grand piano in the saloon-style restaurant add an old world charm that makes it feel very unlike a typical I-94 roadside joint. By the time you reach the dry sauna by the indoor pool, you’ll be convinced that you splashed out on a much more luxurious hotel. Win-win.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
