Cape Cod isn’t cheap – at least, it seems that way if you don’t know where to look. Though the Cape is a holiday destination where it’s easy to have a spending spree, those with a basic budget can still have an unforgettable time. You’ll live largely and spend smartly when you stay at the top Cape Cod cheap hotels – now bookable with Culture Trip.

Salt House Inn

Quincy market in historic downtown Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Seize the season, while keeping a firm grip on your budget, at Salt House Inn, one of the best places to stay in Cape Cod. Wake up to an ever-changing room-service breakfast with a signature bloody mary on the side. Drinks are served all day to keep you cool when you’re not chilling in your compact double room. Freebies like people-watching downtown, soaking up views at the harbor and strolling the historic cemeteries are all readily accessible from this chic inn. When it comes to cheap hotels in Cape Cod, Salt House Inn is up there with the very best.

Inn on the Square

We’re not sure if it’s the skylit indoor pool, the downtown location or the legendary New England clam chowder that makes Inn on the Square feel much ritzier than its nightly rate. Luxury bath products and spa-inspired bathrooms are made all the more splendid with a private hot tub. With the Bebe Woods, Surf Drive Beach and Wildlife Corridor Trail within 1mi (1.6km) or less, Inn on the Square treats you to the beauty of Falmouth without breaking the bank.

Lamb and Lion Inn

Lamb and Lion Inn believes your dog needs a vacation, too. Your hosts will happily map out all of the pet-friendly parks, ferries and restaurants on the island so your furry friend can enjoy the family vacation to the max. They’ll also hook you up with a free self-guided driving tour, where you’ll hunt down hidden gems and walk away with prizes like free wine tastings. Now that’s what we call throwing you a bone.

The Earl of Sandwich Motel

Tranquility doesn’t cost a premium at the Earl of Sandwich Motel. B&B vibes pair with classic Cape hospitality to create a splendid oasis of comfort. The guest rooms are cozy, but you’ll find yourself wandering the lush 3 acres (1.2ha) of gardens most often. Whether you’re floating in the pool, watching the azaleas bloom or catching up on a good book in the garden, you (and your bank account) will be at peace throughout your stay.

Dyer’s Beach House

Millionaire-living for motel prices? Stay a night at Dyer’s Beach House, and you’ll receive just that. This waterfront guesthouse has a sprawling private beach exclusively for guests and private patios in each room. Take in the endless harbor views from your room as you sip a cup of coffee, snuggle into a plush robe, and lay back on your feather bed. No need to rush down to the water; the peaceful surf will still be there when you finish your complimentary morning paper.

Cape Codder Resort and Spa

Trying to find a suite deal for your Cape Cod family vacation? Cape Codder Resort and Spa has you covered year-round. Some suites have whirlpool tubs and fireplaces, while others boast their own private saunas. Step out of your suite, and you’ll have full access to the indulgent Beach Plum Spa, an indoor and outdoor waterpark, and an award-winning restaurant. Add in scheduled kids’ activities, sports courts and an arcade, and your family is sure to have a blast on a modest budget.

Hotel 1620 Plymouth Harbor

Hotel 1620 is the closest hotel to the harbor, granting you fast access to Nelson Beach, Plymouth Rock and everywhere else you plan to visit when you’re not lying around by the indoor pool. Small touches like blackout drapes, work desks and coffee makers make it easy to get your morning going on your terms; the proximity to the historic district, walking trails and community parks will also help you stick to your budget.

Surfside Hotel and Suites

The free breakfast at Surfside Hotel and Suites is a nice touch, but the perk de résistance is undoubtedly the private beach that’s yours to savor. With waterfront rooms, fine dining next door and one of the friendliest bars in P-town, you’ll enjoy a touch of luxury with a laid-back price tag. Stretch your body a little further – but keep your budget tight – with a free morning yoga class on the weekends.

Sesuit Harbor House

Are you the type of budget traveler who says, “if it’s good enough for a goat, it’s good enough for me?” Well, let resident goats Lola and Brownie welcome you to Sesuit Harbor House, set on a cozy 2-acre (0.8ha) property. Have your pick of four buildings to sleep in – though none of which are straw beds in a barn. From the Cape buildings, overlooking the gardens and pool, to the classic rooms in the circa-1735 main house, Sesuit Harbour House will have you raving about your stay until the cows come home.

Brewster by the Sea Inn

You don’t normally see the words “affordable” next to “adults-only historic town inn”, but you do at Brewster by the Sea Inn. Indulge in a luxurious king suite with a gas fireplace and private patio without emptying your wallet. This 1800s farmhouse is as charming as ever, spoiling you with a central yet quiet locale, where you can dine by the pool, read in the perennial gardens or spend your nights exploring the Cape.
