Hotels in Tyler Texas

If you are visiting the Rose Capital of America, chances are you will need to find a hotel. In Tyler Texas, attractions are spread over a very wide area. Tyler only has a population of 100,000 people, but the city sprawls over enough square miles for a population 2 or 3 times that size to live comfortably. Unfortunately for you, that means there is no perfect central location for you to stay. You will have to be strategic in your lodging plans. Here is a short list of hotels and B & B’s near Tyler’s main attractions. (The price range is just an estimate. The lower prices might not be available during high tourism seasons.)

Hotels near Interstate 20

If you are an interstate traveler who might be getting in late, these hotels are located right off of I-20. If you go this route, however, be advised that you are a good 10 minutes outside of Tyler’s city limits, 20 minutes from the Rose Garden, and 30 minutes from any decent shopping centers

Hampton Inn

If you have ever stayed at Hampton Inn, you probably love it already. This hotel was built just a few years ago. it is always lush, comfortable, and has a wonderful breakfast. Expect to pay between $100 and $170 per night for it.

Best Western

This is a newly renovated Best Western hotel that has a good reputation. The continental breakfast is free, and the prices are good, ranging from around $70 to $150 per night.

America’s Best Value Inn

This is a good choice if you are on a tight budget. It has an outdoor pool and internet access, and will just cost you between $45 and $90 at Americas Best Value Inn.

La Quinta Inn

La Quinta is another very nice hotel, offering a hot breakfast, an indoor pool, and a comfortable stay. Like the Hampton, however, it is more pricey than the others, starting around $100 per night.

Hotels near Loop 323 & Hwy 69 North

There is a heavy conglomeration of hotels at the north end of Tyler. Personally, I do not think this is a very good location for a hotel. Not only is north Tyler a junky and sometimes dangerous area, there are no attractions close by, with the exception of the Caldwell Zoo, which is just a few minutes south. If you stay in one of these hotels, you are in no man’s land: 10 minutes from the interstate, but still 20 minutes from any good shopping or good restaurants. That said, there are some decent choices in this area:

Quality Inn Conference Center

The Quality Inn is a good name, and this is a nice hotel with a hot breakfast and cheap prices. Prices can range between $50 and $100 per night.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites

This Holiday Inn Express is a comfortable hotel, offering a hot breakfast, outdoor pool, and prices between $90 and $160 per night.

Strafford House Inn

Each room at the Strafford House has a whirlpool tub and a 32 inch flat screen TV. Best of all, the price are still competitive, ranging from $90 to $160 per night.

Days Inn

The Days Inn is a cheaper option, costing between $55 & $85 a night. They also offer a free breakfast.

Motel 6
Super 8 Motel
Economy Inn

Hotels near Shopping Centers on South Broadway

These hotels are conveniently located close to big shopping centers and great restaurants. Be advised, however, that it might take you fifteen minutes to reach the Rose Garden, and half an hour to reach the interstate from here until Loop 49 is completed.

Hilton Garden Inn

This is a beautiful hotel, with plush rooms with soft beds and flat screen TV’s. Unlike most of the other hotels, this one also has a restaurant, the Great American Grill. But it’s a Hilton, which means it’s going to be expensive: between $120 & $180 per night.

Holiday Inn Select

This large hotel features a beautiful lobby, a spacious and elegant restaurant, and very comfortable rooms, all at prices between $90 and $150 per night at Holiday Inn Select.

Candlewood Suites

This hotel offers large, comfortable rooms with full kitchenettes. Expect to pay between $90 and $170 per night at Candlewood Suites.

Sleep Inn & Suites

Here is another comfortable hotel featuring lovely rooms and suites with 32 inch flat screen TV’s. Another bonus: This Sleep Inn & Suites hotel features a free shuttle to the Tyler Pounds Regional Airport. This is a nice touch, because the airport is a 20 minute drive. Prices range between $100 and $170 per night.

Comfort Inn

It’s part of the Choice Hotels group with Sleep Inn, Quality Inn, and others, so you can expect the same type of service as those ones. Prices range from $90 to $160 at this Comfort Inn.

Best Western Southpark Inn & Suites

Like its counterpart in North Tyler, this is a very nice hotel, featuring flat screen TV’s in all the rooms and suites, and offering a hot breakfast. Prices can range between $90 and $130 at this Best Western.

Options Near the Rose Museum

For some reason, Tyler’s biggest tourist attraction, The Rose Garden, home of the Tyler Rose Festival, offers no nearby hotels, unless you count the Budget Inn and the American inn, which I don’t. So if you want to stay somewhere close, I would recommend a nearby Bed & Breakfast instead. Here are 3 good B&B options in the historic “red brick district,” not far from the Rose Garden.

Rosevine Inn Bed & Breakfast

This is a lovely, old fashioned B & B that travelers will love. For prices on their unique rooms, visit their website at

Woldert-Spence Manor Bed and Breakfast

This is a beautiful, historic B & B. If you love Bed & Breakfasts, you will fall in love with this place. Here’s the website for room pricing:

Chilton Grand Bed and Breakfast

The Chilton is the quintessential southern mansion: Balcony, white pillars and all! Room rates are between $90 and $100, but you’ll want to check their website for specific room information:

…There are other options

There are plenty of other hotels in Tyler Texas, but these clusters are probably the most common. If you are looking for something closer to a different attraction like Lake Palestine or Lake Tyler, check Google Maps for more ideas.
