Oklahoma City is nicknamed the Big Friendly, and this metropolis certainly delivers when it comes to purse-friendly accommodation options. Whether you’re hanging around the lively Bricktown entertainment district or roping in a visit to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, you’ll have more cash to splash by checking into one of the budget hotels in the city. Here we reveal some of the top options, all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Wyndham Grand Oklahoma City Downtown

Trying to do Bricktown on a budget? Wyndham Grand in OKC says come on down without dropping dimes all over the streets. Right next to Bricktown, no rental car is required to see the Myriad Botanical Gardens, Centennial Land Run Monument or riverfront Regatta Park. The hotel’s got you covered with a free 24/7 airport shuttle service so you’ll never have to get behind the wheel; a convenient factor if you plan on frequenting the Canteen Bar & Grill once or twice a day for nibbles and tipples.

2. Courtyard by Marriott Oklahoma City Northwest

Warm your wallet by Courtyard’s outdoor fire pit without burning your budget. This cheap Oklahoma City hotel will keep your bifold from over-extending itself. Let the little ones spend their energy in the pool while you splurge on a coffee from the Starbucks in the lobby. Despite being competitive on the pricing front, the rooms are stylish with contemporary furnishing and cool blue hues.

3. Embassy Suites by Hilton Oklahoma City Northwest

The Embassy Suites looks like something from a 1960s action film, with its retro architecture dominating the skyline. But, once you step inside, you’ll see this place has swung into the 21st century with contemporary furnishings and modern appliances. Things that will help with your vacation budget include an indoor pool, a gym, a complimentary breakfast offering and nightly socials where free wine and beer flow.

4. AC Hotel by Marriott Oklahoma City Bricktown

AC Hotel is a homerun boutique hotel with ballpark peanut prices. Within a line drive of Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, the AC Lounge knocks it out of the park with a European-inspired breakfast of meats, cheeses, bread and tarts. It’s a big enough breakfast to put your stomach in desperate need of a seventh-inning stretch. Get all loosened up in the 24-hour fitness center, or walk off into Bricktown until it’s time to settle in for the first pitch.

5. Sonesta ES Suites Oklahoma City

Riding into Will Rogers World Airport on a bareback budget? Use Sonesta as your stable for savings. Hang your hat and kick off your boots in a suite that’ll let you sleep easy. An ensuite kitchenette, bridled with free breakfast, really makes it easy to graze without heading out onto the range. Pets are limited to dogs only, so you’ll have to board your steed on another pasture.

6. Best Western Plus Saddleback Inn & Conference Center

Walk into the Oklahoma State Fair with pockets full of pennies, and leave with bucketfuls of cotton candy when you stay and save at the Best Western Plus. Far from a roadside motel, this hotel sits on a 6-acre (2.4ha) plot with plenty of resort-style amenities you love, such as a sauna, a hot tub, a gym and an ice vending machine. The fairgrounds are 2mi (3.2km) away, but, if you prefer food that’s not of the fair variety, the onsite Saddle Up Bar & Grill has a hunk of meat for you that’s not on a stick.

7. Hampton Inn Oklahoma City Northwest

You’ll save some dough by staying at this cheap hotel in Oklahoma City. The Hampton Inn hanging just northwest of Downtown has megs and eggs gratis (or what they call free wifi and free breakfasts). The king bed will fit three in a pinch; a room with an extra sofa bed can keep your whole clan comfortable. Now, take all that coin you’ve saved on your stay, and blow it at the Penn Square Mall down the street.

8. Springhill Suites Marriott Quail Springs

You’ll have no qualms about staying at the Springhill Suites in Quail Springs. These suites are a few minutes outside of the city proper, presumably because their oversized rooms needed more space to stretch out between skyscrapers. The extra footage allows space for a mini-fridge and a microwave, which are handy appliances for rustling up a picnic feast to enjoy at Bluff Creek Park.
