For the cheapest prices, some of the companies below offer 'undercover', 'mystery' or 'super saver' hotels, where you know the hotel star rating and parking package before you book, but not the name of the hotel. This will usually save you £10 - £20 compared to a 'named' hotel (sometimes the same hotel, look closely at the description - the star rating and distance from the airport - and you can often spot which one it is).

Stansted Airport Hotel Guide
A growing number of hotels near Stansted Airport offer free airport parking after (or before) one nights stay, which (because you get 'free' airport parking - and parking at the airport is so expensive) usually means that an overnight stay at a hotel works out almost as cheap, and sometimes cheaper, than just booking airport parking.
If you want to be at an 'on airport' hotel it's a choice of three - the Hilton, Express Holiday Inn and the Radisson SAS. Depending on the time of year, you can often get a good deal at all of them, but if you're on a budget, you are often better off selecting a smaller hotel, motel or even a traditional coaching inn slightly further away from the airport (but that offers free parking and free transfers). You will be slightly further away, but you will also save on the cost.
For style and convenience the Radisson SAS Stansted is hard to beat. It is connected to the terminal via a covered walkway, so you have a 2 minute stroll from your hotel to the check in desk. It is 4 star, has excellent facilities, a wine tower with 'angels' and walls of glass too. It is also available as part of a 'with free airport parking' package, making it attractive to holiday and business travellers.
If you don't need a hotel with leisure facilities, the Express Holiday Inn is the number one choice at Stansted, especially for families. Or, if you do want a hotel with facilities, but you would prefer to pay less for your hotel than at the Radisson, check out the Stansted Hilton. It is a 4 star hotel too, but it is significantly to be cheaper.
Holiday Extras: (click on the name to jump to the website) offer a choice of up to 10 stansted airport hotels at discounted rates.
Holiday Extras room rates range from £59 for one night in a double room at a budget hotel with no parking to between £99 and £149 for one night at the Hilton or the Radisson SAS.
(Note: you can book with Holiday Extras 'off-line' by telephoning 0871 360 2110).
FHR Hotels: (click on the name to jump to the website) offer less choice than Holiday Extras, but they are usually the cheapest for the hotels they do offer, especially for family rooms, for single rooms and for rooms at the Hilton.
(Note: book with FHR 'offline' by telephoning 08444 122 902).
APH Hotels: to make sure you get the best deal, compare the prices at Holiday Extras and FHR with the hotels on offer at APH (again click on the name to jump to the website).
Not only do they compete with the others on price at the Radisson SAS, the Park Inn Harlow, the Stansted Manor and a number of others, they also have a few budget hotels that the other two do not have, including a Stansted B&B.
(Note: book over the telephone with APH on 0844 871 7436)
Superbreak: are a UK hotels website with a great choice of hotels - including some not offered by the other four. Superbreak also offer a wide choice of room types too, including single and twin rooms and rooms at Down Hall, an excellent (if expensive) 4 star country house style hotel near the airport.
Superbreak are particularly cheap if you don't need airport parking, but note that they quote prices on a per person basis not per room and if you want an airport hotel including free parking make sure it's included in the hotel description. If it's not in the description then it's not included.
(Note: book over the telephone with Superbreak on 0871 221 2717)
Active Hotels: (this link takes you directly to the Active Stansted hotels page) are another discount hotels website. They offer a wide choice of hotels, some of which include free airport parking (unfortunately, you need to go to the individual hotel pages to find this out). Make sure you keep an eye on the 'distance from the airport' column with Active too, as they list some hotels that are quite a way from the airport.
Also beware, although the room rate at Active may include airport parking, it usually will not include transfers to or from the airport (whereas the prices of FHR / APH / Holiday Extras usually do).
We recommend that you search for a hotel near Stansted airport in the following order:
