There are plenty of cheap Nebraska hotels available in the state, as it is
such a rural region with a down home and family friendly atmosphere. Much of
this cheap lodging in Nebraska will be found at motels located along the major
east to west highway, Interstate 80. Except for the Missouri River border with
Iowa on the east, this highway corridor
is where the greatest numbers of the state's vacation destinations and tourist
attractions are located.
There are resorts along this corridor as well, and even more upscale ones are often priced as discount hotels in Nebraska meaning that you can stay at quite fine properties for very reasonable rates. Other sources for good discount hotels in Nebraska are the many vacation packages available. Some of the best luxury properties are in Lincoln, the capital city; and Omaha, the state's largest city. Even these can seem like cheap Nebraska hotels in price when they partner with, for instance, one of the golfing venues to provide all-inclusive packages. Little communities like nearby Ashland and larger cities like nearby Nebraska City have partnerships with fine hotels in both Lincoln and Omaha.
Other discount hotels in Nebraska include some very nice national chains like Holiday Inn that are adjacent to family type resorts and attractions like some of the state's water parks. Cheap Nebraska hotels can also include stays at unique and charming bed and breakfast inns, many tucked away in beautiful hidden corners of the state. These often have only a handful of boutique-type rooms, providing a more intimate atmosphere than large hotels. Additionally, they generally are family owned and operated, giving you opportunities for more authentic interaction with the local people. And, many will also give you a taste of the region's history, as they are located in old homes of historic significance. Some are even on the National Register of Historic Places. An added attraction of bed and breakfast inns is the inclusion of hearty home cooked meals, often of gourmet quality.
Some of the best cheap lodging in Nebraska will be experienced at many of the state parks, lakes, and wilderness areas and while you are camping. Some of the state parks have very nice full-service lodges. Many have cabins available as vacation rentals. These cabins can help travelers on a budget save on the costs of dining out at local restaurants, and they come fully furnished with everything from bed linens to dishes and cooking utensils. There are numerous public and private campgrounds that provide primitive camping sites as well as water, sewer, and electric hook ups for motor homes and recreational vehicles. You may find that some of the finest dining will be around your own campfire or barbecue pit. Many often have other facilities, including swimming pools, activities centers, and playgrounds. These venues place you right in the midst of the state's scenic beauty, and close to hiking and fishing areas.
