Accommodation prices in Florida vary considerably according to the season and which part of the state you are staying in. Generally speaking, peak season in South Florida runs from the Christmas holidays to late January. Areas around the Panhandle, Saint Augustine and Jacksonville experience their peak season in the summer. However, Central Florida and Orlando, the theme park capital of the world, remain popular throughout the year.
Motels and budget chain hotels are the most affordable accommodations in Florida. Motels are the cheaper of the two options and can be found around beaches and on roads approaching major cities. While they may lack character, chain hotels offer a reliable stay. Budget chains with hotels in Florida include Days Inn, Hampton Inns and Red Carpet Inns.
There are plenty of midrange hotels and resorts throughout the state. These boast superior facilities including pools, bars, restaurant and often a private beach. Luxury accommodations can be found throughout the state and boast opulent rooms and fantastic facilities such as health clubs, fine-dining and spas.
If you plan on spending much of your time at Universal Orlando or Disney World, you should definitely look into staying at the resort. The resorts have a range of themed accommodations to suit a variety of budgets and your park ticket is often included in the price of your room.
Bed and breakfasts are a popular alternative to hotels in Florida. Florida bed and breakfasts come in a range of styles from cute, homely inns to opulent Victorian houses with fancy furnishings and gourmet breakfasts.
