There's a lot of highly rated hotels in Guelph and most are quite reasonably priced, but they tend to be located about a 10-minute drive from the downtown core on the average. I looked for hotels that provide good value at the best possible price in Guelph, while comparing guest opinion, amenities offered and the convenience of the hotel's location. My picks are the hotels I consider to offer the very best value for the price.

Favoured by guests for value and service, free hot breakfast and well-equipped rooms
I picked the Comfort Inn in Guelph because it’s a guest favorite for value. This is a well-liked basic hotel, judging from guests who have reviewed online recently, most considering it excellent and giving it very good scores. It's also one of the cheapest available for the city of Guelph. 

Guests liked the manager and staff here, saying that they could not have been more accommodating. Other items of praise were the (free) hot breakfast, comfy beds with nice bedding and the renovations at the hotel which gave rooms a modern look. Guests also found the location convenient to the highway and said there were enjoyable restaurants in walking distance of the hotel.

The rooms are well-equipped and feature desirable extras like mini-fridges and microwaves, as well as flat screen TVs. And even better, the all-important amenities of Wi-Fi and parking are included in the hotel's already cheaper room rate.

Popular Guelph hotel with indoor pool and waterslide, private jacuzzis and free breakfast
The Fairfield Inn, is another great choice for value and my pick for guests with vehicles. This hotel is another gem in the city of Guelph, about 11 minutes from downtown Guelph, with very high ratings from guests and one of the lowest room rates for the city. Guests say that this is a relatively new hotel (opened Feb 2008) that is well laid out and modern. 

Guests highlighted the good value given by the hotel, the (free) breakfast for variety, and said the staff were very friendly and professional. 

All rooms come with free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges and flat screen TVs, and guests can enjoy a drink at the hotel’s on-site lounge or take a dip in the indoor pool and hot tub. There’s a waterslide, that is open during specific times as well, for guests’ entertainment and fun. There is also a 24-hr fitness centre, so guests won't have to miss a workout, and a convenient 24-hr business centre on site. Parking is included in the room rate and guests will find dining options and the Stone Road Mall both within a 7-minute drive from the hotel.

Highly praised Guelph hotel with indoor pool and hot tub, kitchenette and jacuzzi suites
The Holiday Inn Express is another great pick for Guelph. It's situated about 10 minutes' drive northwest of downtown Guelph in a commercial area with business parks and restaurants nearby. Most folks give it full marks as they consider it to deliver great value for the price and offer a very clean, modern and comfortable environment.

Guests raved about the heated bathroom floors, the excellent food served at breakfast, the spacious rooms and suites that are perfect for families, the quiet surroundings and exceptional staff.

The rooms are well appointed with modern amenities, high-definition cable channels and brand-new mattresses and bedding. Business guests will appreciate a 24-hour business centre and the hotel's boardroom, and those needing to unwind and relax can make use of the fitness centre, indoor pool and hot tub. It's great for families too with a filling free breakfast with lots of hot choices and a fun pancake machine, and spacious one-bedroom suites, giving Mom and Dad a little privacy and their own TV. Wi-Fi and parking are included with each stay.
