Best U.S. Hotels in 2018 under $150

Fathom Travel Awards


If money were no object, booking travel would be a cinch. But when time and money are in limited supply — and good taste and high style still matter — searching for an affordable (or even cheap) hotel that's also a pleasure stay in can feel a little like looking for a needle in a musty old haystack. Do cool, quirky, clever, and charming budget hotels even exist in America?

Yes, they do.

For this month's installment of the Fathom Travel Awards, we found and are celebrating budget hotels punching well above their weight.

As always our hotel standards are unwavering: We care about size, sensibility, design, amenities, location, and price. All the hotels mentioned on this list have rooms going for $150 or less per night somewhere on the internet as of this publication date. Go ahead and splurge on saving.

The Dreamcatcher

Where: San Juan, Puerto Rico

What we love:

The capital’s only vegetarian bed and breakfast delights with twelve boho-chic rooms, each naturally equipped with a dreamcatcher, just steps from the beach in the residential Ocean Park area. Morning yoga, a luscious breakfast and brunch, tarot card readings, and adventure tours ensure you’re blissed out from the moment you arrive.
