The oldest Californian city and the state’s capital, Sacramento is a laid-back place where you can learn some history and enjoy nature. Although the pace of life is slower than in the other touristy Californian cities, it doesn’t mean Sacramento is boring or cheap. If you are trying to find cheap hotels in Sacramento you are in for a bit of a surprise: hotels aren’t cheap but the motels and inns can represent good alternatives.

Old Sacramento is the biggest tourist attraction, with several museums, shops and the horse-drawn stagecoaches. The flavor is definitely unique and the time spent here, magical. It’s easily negotiable on foot. Actually, the Riverfront, the Old Sacramento, the California State Railroad Museum and the Capitol building are all within easy walk from the train station. Families with children should visit Sacramento Zoo and the Fairy Tale Town. And if you like to relax in the nature, head to Folsom Lake for some biking, hiking or kayaking.

It makes sense to try to find cheap hotels in Sacramento close to the Old part of the city or to the train station. Unfortunately, that may prove to be a little on the hefty side and you should probably look for some budget places located further from the sites. Motels and inns are quite reasonably priced even if they are closer to the attractions. But you need to sacrifice some facilities for the price and location.

Some of the budget places worth trying in Sacramento include: Vagabond Inn Executive Old Town (located across the street from Old Sacramento, within walking distance of the Capitol, free internet in the rooms, fitness room, pool, free breakfast, pets allowed ), Best Western Expo Inn (126 rooms, close to Old Sacramento, free breakfast, fitness center, pool, pets allowed, internet) and Super 8 Hotel Florin Road (free breakfast, free wi-fi internet, pool, close to Old Sacramento, microwave and fridge in room).
