Hotel Granduca Austin scored the No. 2 spot on the “Top 25 Value for Money Hotels” ranking of U.S. hotels.

Southwest of Austin, the Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort Hill Country nabbed the No. 18 spot on the ranking of “Top 25 Hotels for Families” in the U.S. The Canyon Lake resort features numerous pools, including a water playground, and activities like laser tag. Visitors can stay in a cabin, or camp in a tent or RV.
Rainbow Courts in Rockdale landed at No. 9 on the list for “Top 25 Bargain Hotels” in the U.S. A TripAdvisor review describes the lodging as “quaint and clean.” The hotel, located northeast of Austin, also offers suites and cottages.
Austin’s neighbor down south didn’t do so bad on the rankings either. Two hotels in San Antonio landed on the TripAdvisor rankings: Hotel Valencia (No. 11 Top 25 Value for Money Hotels in the U.S.) and Hotel Emma (No. 4 Top 25 Hotels in the U.S.).
