When used with something like hotel, "cheap" usually has a connotation of low quality, as well as price. Consequently, I would ptobably say that I was looking for an "inexpensive" hotel.

Sorry to have put this note in the comments, since I realize that is not the place to suggest an addition, but I thought this subtlety might be interesting to those also learning English.

I would say that "дешевий" implies low quality in Ukrainian as well. To avoid that connotation, one can say "недорогий".
