Where to Stay in Augusta
The greater Augusta metropolitan area includes parts of South Carolina, but for the purposes of choosing hotel accommodations, it’s helpful to focus on proximity to the major tourist areas of interest: Downtown Augusta and the areas enclosed by Interstates 20 and 520. If you expect to spend the majority of your time in one of these areas, you can spare yourself lots of highway travel by booking a room nearby. With so many options, cheap Augusta hotel deals can be found close to the points of interest on your itinerary no matter what brings you to the area.
Several nice Downtown hotels put you close to Augusta's historic offerings, including museums, renovated mansions and stops important in both Confederate and African-American history.

The "Artists' Row" block of Broad Street has emerged in recent years as a hip destination because of its eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and galleries.
Augusta Hotel Tips
Several of the city’s more upscale chain hotels are located in Downtown Augusta, east of the Savannah River.

Accommodations in the greater Augusta–Richmond County metro area largely consist of budget-friendly family hotels. Along I-20, I-520 and throughout the rest of Augusta, national chain hotels are the most common type of lodging, but brands range from the budget-minded Econo Lodge to the comfortable Marriott.
Augusta is popular for travelers year-round, as the average temperature is in the low 60s. April, though, is easily the area's busiest month, as the Masters golf tournament puts the city in the international spotlight. If you book a flight to Augusta during the first full week of April, it's wise to compare accommodations ahead of time, as last minute deals might be hard to find.
