Halfway between Memphis and Nashville is Jackson, Tennessee – a gateway to the two iconic music cities. But don’t be fooled by its middle-of-the-road locale; Jackson has a history and culture all its own. In fact, it’s steeped in Civil War and railroad history and is home to the International Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame Museum. Better yet? A visit to the “Hub City” won’t break the bank. Here are the best cheap hotels in Jackson, Tennessee – bookable on Culture Trip.

Courtyard by Marriott Jackson, for road-trip unwinding

On a Memphis-to-Nashville road trip? Located right off I-40, Courtyard by Marriott Jackson makes a peachy pit stop. The open lobby has plenty of space to mingle or flip a laptop open and catch up on some cat vids – while the Bistro serves up Starbucks coffees, cocktails and whatever you fancy for breakfast and dinner. Once you’ve dropped your bags in your room, kick back with a beer and a good book by the outdoor fire pit.

Hampton Inn and Suites Jackson, for sharpening your short game

Comfort Inn Brownsville I-40, for the best of both worlds

Technically, Comfort Inn Brownsville 1-40 is in Brownsville, as the name suggests – about a half-hour outside Jackson. But if you’re planning on dividing your time between Jackson and Memphis, it’s well-placed right off the Interstate. Enjoy free breakfast, a business center, an outdoor pool and an exercise room at this hotel – before taking a jaunt around Brownsville, home to flora-and-fauna-rich Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge and the Flagg Grove School, once attended by Tina Turner.

Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Jackson, for checking in to chill out

That’s why it’s conveniently located just off I-40 and has everything you need to check in, chill out and recharge. You’ll get to choose from a complimentary full, buffet or continental breakfast and enjoy free amenities like coffee, tea and Wi-Fi. Power down while your gear powers up, with lots of outlets and a pillow menu – there’s also a fitness center and heated outdoor pool.

If you’re on team Comfort, but want to be closer to Jackson’s action, make Comfort Suites Jackson 1-40 your home away from home. Brand loyalists will know all about the Southern fare like biscuits and gravy at breakfast, as well as sleeping off your carb coma from the sun deck – or working it off in the heated indoor pool with a hot tub. Venture out to Casey Jones Home and Railroad Museum: a top attraction in Tennessee that’s less than a mile (1.6km) away from the hotel.
