We all need a little break from time to time. And it doesn't come in any better form than a vacation. Go with friends, family or take it solo, but taking a trip to refresh yourself from all the urban chaos is extremely important.

However, the only thing that really stops us from escaping for a couple of days is the finances. You can always travel cheap and eat from smaller places rather than luxurious hotels but it is the stay that needs to not just be comfortable and safe, but also affordable. 

If you really think about it, the main expenditure is made on the stay. But that should not be the reason you give up on your vacation, isn't it?

Hence, we bring you a list of government hotels that offer a good ambiance with good prices for some of the most loved destinations of India:

1. Hotel Beas, Manali

Starting Price: ₹ 700

True to its name, this hotel offers you a view of the river Beas and to add to it, the garden here is a favourite with all the guests.
