we have thought in spending up to 50 dollars or a bit more but what we don't know yet is where place to stay.

Could you please recommend me any place on the beach side?

I have read your post for Chennai and places round it,

and it looks really interesting.

thanks a lot

This costs more, but the reviews are good:

Maybe you can stay here one night; then you can search for a smaller, less expensive hotel when you are there for the second night. There are small lodges in Mahabalipuram for budget tourists, you should inspect them before you book, so it best done when you are there. Anyway there will be no rush in July.
