Tampa Cheap Hotels - Where to find Tampa cheap hotels

north beach street gulf

The Tampa Bay area offers an array of cheap hotels, many close to the major attractions and the beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. Found mostly in Pinellas County on the west side of the bay, these are often packed in winter with snowbirds from Canada and the northern states. It’s a good idea to plan ahead, especially if heading to the 30 mile stretch of beaches along Gulf Boulevard, from Clearwater beach on the north end, which is packed around spring break, to the city of St.Pete Beach, which ends at Pass-A-Grille beach at it’s southern point.

Besides the national budget chains, there are still many independent family-owned inns. Along 4th Street and 34th Street in St. Petersburg, they are plentiful. These are busy north-south arteries on public bus routes. Also in Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, and St.Pete Beach along the Gulf. There is a cluster of cheap national chain hotels running east-west along busy Ulmerton Road, between 49th Street and Interstate 275 near the St.Petersburg-Clearwater Airport. This is the city of Clearwater’s north side.

Also on the north side of Tampa, near the Lowry Park zoo, Busch Gardens, Museum of Science and Industry, and University of South Florida campus. These are clustered close to the Interstate 275 exits along Busch Boulevard, Fowler Avenue, and Florida Avenue. There is little public transportation that far north. Cheap lodging is rare around Tampa International Airport and downtown Tampa. There are some along super-busy Dale Mabry highway, the main north-south artery in Tampa.

There are plenty of cheap accomodations around this vacation paradise, which is surprisingly affordable.
