“Hotels have long been the go-to choice for travelers seeking comfort and convenience, but Airbnb has grown in popularity as an alternative, offering unique stays and a taste of local life,” Keri Stooksbury, editor-in-chief at Upgraded Points, said in a statement. “When choosing between comfort and uniqueness, cost plays a huge role, and we wanted to find just where you could find the best accommodation deals.”
Airbnb was determined to be the most cost-effective accommodation option in 71 out of 100 cities examined, with an average nightly rate of $156 compared to $208 for hotels. In some cities in the Midwest, the difference was roughly $200 per night.
However, the difference was minimal in other cities like San Jose, California, and McAllen, Texas, where nightly rates were separated by just $1.50.
