Best Values 2008

Here's our list of TripAdvisor's Top 100 Best Value hotels around the world, with quotes from travelers who have actually stayed in them.

Real travelers know best. For our first-ever Budget Travel Best Values awards, we've partnered with TripAdvisor, the leading resource for hotel reviews, to pinpoint the world's most reliable hotels with an average nightly rate of $250 or less. Winners were selected based on TripAdvisor's Popularity Index, a proprietary algorithm that determines traveler satisfaction based on a variety of sources, including TripAdvisor reviews and travel articles and opinions from across the Internet. TripAdvisor calculated the average nightly rates from four different weeks throughout the year, during peak and off-peak periods.

Save this list! Because while a good hotel may not be the best part of your trip, a bad hotel can easily be the worst. The Editors
