Waving at Canada from over the Salish Sea, Port Angeles sits on the edge of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. It’s a major gateway to Olympic National Park, making it a perfect base for days spent hiking, spotting wildlife and chasing waterfalls. When it’s time to hang your head for the night, do so in one of these budget-friendly motels, quaint B&Bs, hidden rustic cottages and hotels in Port Angeles – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. A Hidden Haven Forest Cottages, for whimsical seclusion

At A Hidden Haven, cottages are concealed within acres of secluded forest, creating the perfect holiday hideaway. Century-old trees surround you outside the cottages, while whimsical charm embraces you inside. Each cottage has a private deck with a barbecue, a romantic whirlpool tub, a fireplace and skylights in every room. You’ll hardly run into another soul during your stay, unless you’d like to greet the locals or hand-feed Prancer the resident reindeer.

2. Lord Carlton Country Manor House, to live like a local

Wake up feeling like a local at the Lord Carlton Country Manor House. Imagine hot coffee and a cool breeze waiting for you every morning in the garden, and picture yourself going on a quiet stroll to gather your thoughts on some of the most picturesque trails in the state. This quiet B&B is close enough to Port Angeles to run into town whenever you please, and leave the noise, lights and traffic behind when you’re done.

3. Quality Inn Uptown, for pinching the pennies

You can stay under budget without roughing it in Port Angeles – just stay at Quality Inn. This uptown hotel is only five minutes from the Olympic National Park Visitor Center. Breakfast and wifi are free, and the views are priceless. Cheap eats such as fast-food joints and cafes are within easy walking distance, so you won’t waste a cent on gas, either. Pocket some snacks for the road and walk to the Olympic Discovery Trail for a smorgasbord of natural delights.

4. Emerald Valley Inn, for a digital detox

You’ll feel a world away from it all at Emerald Valley Inn, while staying just 15 minutes from downtown Port Angeles. Stay as unplugged as you wish, with glamping and camping on offer if the creature comforts of the rooms and suites are a little too city for you. The famous Granny’s Cafe is next door to the Inn – don’t miss starting your hiking days with a stack of hot cakes and a side of corn beef hash.

5. Royal Victorian Motel, for downtown delights

6. Lake Crescent Lodge, for an off-grid getaway

These lakeside cabins and cottages keep to themselves just off of the Olympic Highway, and are so cozy, you’ll likely want to do the same.
