Cheapest Hotels in Lagos
Lagos is not like every other Nigerian state because of its traffic congestion problem, so anyone who is coming to this town will have to understand this.
Because of traffic congestion in the day, people tend to leave their homes as early as 5.00am to get to the office. On getting to the office at 5.30am – 5.45am, they will take a short nap before starting work at 8.00am.
I know this will sound rather funny to many readers while it will be strange to others, but this is done in a bid to avoid the crazy traffic of rush hour periods of 6.00am to 9.00am.

Lagos State has by far the highest number of hotels in Nigeria. The unprecedented explosion of hotels in the state is occasioned by regular influx of foreign nationals into the city for business opportunities, tourism, medicals and vacation hence, Lagos’ Murtala Mohammed International Airport boasts as the busiest airport in West Africa and the 3rd busiest on the continent.
Also, the migration of many Nigerians from their localities to Lagos in search of greener pastures has contributed in no equal measures to the hospitality business in Lagos.
The list of cheapest hotels in Lagos is countless, but this is a review of “neat hotels” that will meet the expectations of both my foreign and local readers.
The major challenge facing people living in Lagos is traffic though the authorities have made serious efforts to reduce traffic congestions in the city.
Consequently, if you are visiting Lagos for a seminar, workshop, event, appointment, or meeting, make sure you check into a hotel close to the venue, else you may spend up to 5 hours in traffic in a distance of 5km.
