Pocket Guide: 1 Star Hotels in Tampa

Stay in a 1 Star Hotel in Tampa

If you’re on a shoestring budget, the sunny Florida city of Tampa offers low-cost, one-star accommodation within easy reach of cultural attractions and stunning natural views. Some of your best options will be in East Tampa, which sits close to popular casinos as well as an airport.

Enjoy a more traditional stay in a one-star inn with comfortable rooms overlooking an outdoor swimming pool, or head further north and stay on the outskirts of the city in an RV and camping ground. No matter where you stay, you will have unlimited access to the vibrant sun that helps give Florida its nickname, the Sunshine State.

Explore Tampa’s Nature and Wildlife

Enjoying the sun, surf and sand is completely free to all visitors to Tampa. Hop on a bike you’re your one-star hotel and cruise down the coastline through the Courtney Campbell Trail, kick off your shoes and dig your toes into the sand at Cypress Point Park and jump in the waves right off the coast of Fort De Soto Park.

For a memorable day out, head to Sand Key Park on the barrier island of Sand Key just off Florida’s Gulf Coast. Here, you can experience some of the most pristine white sand that Tampa has to offer. Wade into the ocean for a swim and stick around until evening to watch the sun sink below the horizon.

Cheap Places to Eat and Drink in Tampa

One of the cheapest ways to eat in Tampa is to take advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings and pack your own picnic. Most of the supermarkets in Tampa serve freshly made ready-to-eat lunches that are much more affordable than restaurant meals.

Alternatively, you will find casual family-owned cafes dotted around downtown Tampa. Not only are these type of establishments relatively easy on the wallet, but they also give you a chance to get to know the locals.

You don’t need a large budget to make the most of Tampa. Book a one-star hotel and immerse yourself in the many free activities in this popular Florida city.
