Cheap places to stay in Blackpool

If you want an affordable stay in Blackpool, there are many options on both the North Shore and South Shore. Even though they're cheaper, these neighbourhoods are close to the seaside attractions thanks to the tramway.

For savvy travellers, the Travelodge Blackpool South Shore offers a clean and comfortable stay. With the Grosvenor Casino across the promenade, it's the perfect choice for those who want to spend their money on a flutter instead of frills.

For a more vibrant and unique stay, you can also consider the Mardi Gras Hotel. This centrally located hotel offers a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere in the heart of Blackpool’s LGBTQ+ community.
