Dramatic beachy backdrops, outdoor firepits and garland-strung decks don’t cost the earth at these budget-friendly bases in Seaside, Oregon. Book your stay now with Culture Trip.

Perhaps the most literally named town that we’ve ever encountered, Seaside sits on the windswept rugged coast of America’s beautiful Pacific Northwest. In the same state as the hipster hub of Portland, some of the city’s artsy, homegrown, trendy vibes have spilled over into quaint Seaside, adding endearing, thoughtful touches to the ocean-facing hotels. Whichever you choose, you’re only ever a few sandy steps away from beachside fun.

From $219 Per night per room

“Paint your palette blue and grey. Look out on a summer’s day…”, so goes Don McLean’s Starry, Starry Night. But, whether spring, autumn or winter, it’s always pretty beautiful at this quirk-filled Seaside stay stocked with instruments – in case you want to pen your own acoustic hit. The character-packed boutique hotel consists of a six-room villa, three rooms at the Victorian Lodge and three individual cabins, all with local art and some very much leaning into the Van Gough theme. It’s a friendly, social sort of place, with fire pits outdoors and an infrared sauna, too – perfect after blustery beach days.

The rooms are refurbished, and some come with ocean views, a kitchenette and even a hot tub.
