The Best Budget Hotels in Portland

Deanna deBara | April 27, 2018

Sometimes, you’ve got money to blow on your trip. No expense is spared; you stay at the finest hotels, eat at the best restaurants, and basically blow money like it’s going out of style. Other trips? Not so much. When you’re working with a tight travel budget, you need to make every dollar stretch as far as it can - and that includes your accommodations.

Lucky for you, there are plenty of great places to stay for those trips when you want to travel but your wallet is feeling a bit on the empty side. Here are the best hotels in Portland if you’re on a budget.


Residence Inn—Lloyd Center

Why it made the list

One great way to save money during a trip? Cutting down on food costs. All the rooms at Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Lloyd Center come equipped with full kitchens, which will save you money on eating out (and while this is definitely the least stylish of the Residence Inn properties in Portland, it’s also the most affordable, often renting for as low as $109).

Jupiter Hotel

Why it made the list

This Portland property is in the process of opening up Jupiter NEXT, a swanky sister property that promises to bump up prices. But in the meantime, you can stay at the comfortable, unpretentious Jupiter Hotel (which has cool features like an in-house art gallery that features work by local artists, aptly named gallery @ the jupiter) for around $109 per night.

Portland International Guesthouse

Why it made the list

Hostels are popular in Europe and Asia thanks to their communal living, fun atmosphere, and - most importantly - trademark low prices. Portland International Guesthouse is the City of Roses version of a hostel. Located in the vibrant Alphabet District, Portland International Guesthoues has private rooms (just be prepared to share a bath) within walking distance from shops, restaurants, and attractions that you can score for as little as $75 per night.

Monticello Motel

Why it made the list

Motels are synonymous with affordability, and the Monticello Motel is no different. There’s nothing fancy about this property, but it’s clean, comfortable, and the most affordable deal in town (we’ve seen prices go as low as $60 per night).
