You can drive from Mombasa to Dar-es-Salaam and then take the ferry across. Will involve an overnight in Dar.

Yes, by plane it might be cheaper. Apart from a night in Dar, you probably also need a taxi from/to the bus station/ferry plus the ferry to Zanzibar itself. Also myself next year I changed my plans to fly back to Mombasa. As your location is Mombasa (according to your profile) just go to a Fly540 agent and book your flight there (online it's much more expensive). I paid (for next year) around 11000 KES one-way.

Jambo Guesthouse (I'm not related to that!!) in Stone Town should be a good place to stay (we had guests who stayed there and the place was also recommend to me by a hotel owner from Stone Town.
