There’s no need to scoot up north for a boardwalk beachside getaway; spend your summer sitting on the shores of Virginia Beach. This coastal city isn’t a bad place to land; just ask the Jamestown settlers who first arrived in 1607. Much has changed over 400 years, but you’ll still find remarkable sunrises and calm waves all the same. You’ll find us counting our savings where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Chesapeake Bay, with these purse-friendly Virginia Beach hotels, all bookable with Culture Trip.

Holiday Inn & Suites Virginia Beach – North Beach

Whoa, no need to get all credit-card crazy – just because this Holiday Inn is an oceanfront resort doesn’t mean that you’re destined for a swiping spree. In fact, this is one hotel in Virginia Beach that seems to do everything possible to help you stick to the budget. Your kids will eat free at the onsite restaurant. After they’ve replenished their energy with chicken nuggets and tater tots, they’ll be ready to fire off a few cannonballs into the Splish Splash Lagoon, an onsite water park that just so happens to be next to the movie theater.

Residence Inn Virginia Beach Oceanfront

With the Virginia Beach Boardwalk visible from your residential-style suite, you’ll forget all about big-city gridlock at Residence Inn. This extended-stay cut-price hotel in Virginia Beach wants nothing more than to trade your weekday stresses for weekend beachside bliss. A DIY breakfast is effortless in the kitchen in your suite if you don’t fancy a run at the free buffet downstairs. It’s not what you eat, though; it’s where you eat it, and we suggest dining right on your oceanfront balcony for maximum pleasure.

Best Western Center Inn

While it may be a 20-minute drive from Virginia Beach’s shoreline, the Best Western near the Norfolk Botanical Garden keeps you close to all of the attractions in the city. Consider visits to the Virginia Zoo, Chrysler Museum or the USS Wisconsin over free breakfast. You won’t be without the water here, though, as there’s an onsite pool to keep you cool after a day of sightseeing.

Candlewood Suites Virginia Beach Town Center

If the kids need a break from the beach and your wallet needs a reprieve from expensive overnights, let Candlewood Suites help you all out. This reasonably priced hotel in Virginia Beach’s Town Center has its signature Candlewood Cupboard so the kids can snack without eating through your budget. Grab a picnic of sorts, and chow down outside under the cool of the gazebo. The kids will get a kick out of the aptly named Mt Trashmore Park across the street, so much so that the trails, playground and skate park should keep them – not your budget – busy for hours.

Hampton Inn Virginia Beach-Oceanfront South

Turn right off of I-264, park at the Hampton Inn, and walk twenty paces to the ocean. There you go; that’s all you need to do to have an amazing vacation at this hotel in Virginia Beach. We’re not skipping steps either. Hampton Inn has free parking, so you won’t be whipping out your wallet unnecessarily. You could take the time to unpack in your ocean-view suite or grab a well-deserved beer from the 11th Street Tap House, but certainly not at the expense of a perfect golden tan.

SpringHill Suites Virginia Beach Oceanfront

It’s hard to believe that there are any affordable Virginia Beach hotels on Resort Beach, but, hey, SpringHill Suites is known for defying expectations. Morning munchies and social media surfing are complimentary – as they should be – but it’s the free onsite parking that we think is prime. You’re only footsteps from the sand, which makes the snack run to the 24-hour market all the easier. Don’t feel like tracking sand to and fro? Steal a seat at the poolside bar, and enjoy a change of scenery away from the beach.

Fairfield Inn & Suites Virginia Beach/Norfolk Airport

Unless you’re flying home with the Navy or on a private seaplane, you’ll appreciate this cheap hotel near Norfolk International Airport. Fairfield Inn & Suites is only minutes to the terminal and just a few longer to Little Creek Beach, so you’d better slather on that sunscreen before your plane lands. The spacious rooms here are the perfect place to return to after a day of beach activity, and the blue-hued carpets play on the ocean theme.

Four Points by Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront

Oceanfront doesn’t mean waterlogging your budget at Four Points by Sheraton. Every room overlooks the shoreline, and they’re spacious, too, not including the extra room to roam on the balcony. What’s more, this Virginia Beach spot has a built-in backup plan for rainy afternoons in the form of a heated indoor pool with sublime views over the golden sands.
