If you are arriving in Southampton by public transport either train or coach and using either the City or Mayflower Southampton cruise terminal, three hotels stand out as being particularly convenient.
The Ibis Budget (ex ETAP), Ibis and Novotel are all clustered around a square opposite the dock gate used for access to the City and Mayflower cruise terminals. The hotels are a short 5 minute walk from both the train station and National Express coach station. It's also perfectly feasible to walk to the City Cruise Terminal from the hotels, the Mayflower though is a much longer trek, only for the intrepid few.
The three hotels are all owned by the French Accor group.
The Ibis Budget is the ultra no-frills brand and most nights will be the cheapest in accommodation in Southampton city centre. Only built in 2010 this offers modern clean rooms but minimal space, appropriate if all you want from a hotel is somewhere to sleep, wash and brush up and safely secure your luggage.
The Ibis is the next step up, but still a budget hotel but with more space and facilities. The Novotel is a full service hotel complete with indoor pool, fitness centre etc.
Wherever, you stay in the centre of Southampton you will not be that far from the cruise terminals, coach and train stations and the shopping centres of Southampton.
