Oregon’s small town of Bend is right on the Deschutes River and in the shadow of the Three Sisters Mountains. Take a look at our favorite picks of affordable hotels in Bend – all bookable on Culture Trip.

Central Oregon is known for its jagged peaks, wild rivers and meadows, but there is a large swathe of the eastern portion of the state that is high desert. This equates to an arid, dry climate and lots of sunshine. Bend is about a two-hour drive away from the stunning Crater Lake National Park, and it’s only slightly further to the Willamette Valley – famous for vineyards and even lavender fields. These hotels will have the creature comforts and amenities you’ll need and want as a visitor here.

1. Campfire Hotel

Boutique Hotel

Whether hiking or whitewater rafting by day, you’ll want to enjoy the Campfire Hotel’s camp vibes in the evening. Once the 10ft campfire pit is a roaring fire, it’s ready for any acoustic jams – simply bring along the Breedlove guitar from your room. If you’re in the mood for hanging out, the seasonally heated pool is all yours, while the hot tub has been converted to saltwater. Also on the premises is Phoebe and Doug’s Canteen Bar, serving inventive cocktails, great tapas and a wonderful atmosphere with great music.

2. Cascade Lodge

Hotel, Lodge

This reasonably priced hotel offers comfortable accommodation in downtown Bend, near a variety of eateries and shopping. Cascade Lodge is close to Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Deschutes National Forest and Tumalo Mountain, plus it’s only a 20-minute drive to the Mt Bachelor ski area. There’s access to many outdoor activities: cycling, fishing, skiing, hiking and canoeing – to name a few. Unique in-room amenities include an electric kettle, extra-long beds and importantly, plug sockets near your bed.

Some of the amenities include 24-hour coffee, breakfast delivered to your refrigerator and a kitchen in every room. The Bend property is within walking distance of the Blue Spruce Pottery, Old Mill District and Deschutes Historical Museum – and just a short drive from the Mt Bachelor Ski Resort.

4. Waypoint Hotel

This modern distinctive hotel – directly off of Highway 97 – is full of surprises. Think cider and local brew on tap behind the front desk, along with a spacious beer garden with fire pits located out back. It has a stunningly proportioned lobby – the focal point being an enormous fireplace – but the large outdoor pool is equally engaging, near the on-site food truck. The comfortable rooms have been refurbished to a high standard, several of which are well-proportioned suites.

5. Tetherow Hotel

This vast property borders the Deschutes National Forest and is astonishing in its size – 700 acres. So, what does a resort the size of a small town encompass? Residential neighborhoods and vacation rental homes for one, but also an award-winning 18-hole golf course, beautiful pool, three restaurants and a fitness facility. But it’s the 50-room, ecofriendly boutique hotel – which includes an adventure concierge – that will really interest travelers. The bright, generously sized rooms have smart decor and views out to the Cascade Mountains, while the suites even have their own fireplaces.

6. Bunk & Brew Historic Lucas House

Independent Hotel

Bunk and Brew – based in the rangy, roomy historic Lucas House – does what it says on the tin by providing a bunk for sleeping and brew to drink. But there is so much more to this place – with the communal aspect worth a mention. The rooms are dormitory-style but there are plenty of private rooms and suites that work for families, too. A light breakfast is included every morning, plus there are great perks: a sauna, outdoor food-beer garden, fire pits and a gas grill, plus secure storage for bikes, skis and boards.

7. Rainbow Motel

Breezy and bright, this basic accommodation is perfect for those seeking a low-cost, comfortable and well-located property. It’s a motel set-up where you can virtually drive up to your front door – or for those wanting peace and quiet, there is a hotel section as well. Each room has a small kitchenette with half-size fridges and microwaves. It’s a great location for downtown Bend – not far from attractions, eateries and shopping, along with the mountains for those looking to ski.

8. Hampton Inn and Suites Bend
