Hotels are so five years ago. For your next weekend retreat, it’s high time to skip the room service in exchange for a room with a real view — and lots of local character and charm.

But, what qualifies as “cheap,” you might ask? Just like beauty, cheap (and expensive, for that matter) is in the eye of the beholder. For the sake of round numbers, we’ve kept this list of Airbnb treasures to under $180 per night — with a few notable exceptions that are worth the extra dollars, if you ask us.

Even though these places are on the, ahem, cheap side, it doesn’t mean that you won’t feel like a million bucks. From the cutest cabins to a dome, there are some unique Texas Airbnbs out there you might want to book on your next trip across the state.

Check into one of these four inexpensive Airbnbs in Texas that aren’t only perfect for a weekend retreat, but they won’t break the bank.

Trevor | Airbnb

Price: $128 per night

Location: Terlingua

Why You Should Stay Here: Stargazers will be salivating at the sight of this solar-powered dome that’s located in a very remote and unique space in the desert near Big Bend National Park. It rests in an isolated, but accessible, off-grid setting in one of the few remaining territories under a dark sky ordinance, offering unmatched views of the night sky not to mention a completely unobstructed view of a horizon for the most majestic sunrises and sunsets. Its “cool” status was cemented with a featured on HGTV’s Mighty Tiny Houses. Though the dome is isolated, the entrance to the national park is just a 25-minute drive away and so is the historic Terlingua ghost town.

Why You Should Stay Here: Originally built in 1937, but renovated a few years ago, this adorable cottage has everything you need for a home away from home. Impeccably designed with cozy-mod décor, it also has a sleeping loft that’s both fun and functional.

Marcella | Airbnb

Price: $125 per night

Location: East Austin

Why You Should Stay Here: The happy-go-lucky interior couldn’t be more well-suited to the vintage spirit while party lights outside make it all the more festive. There’s a lovely outdoor shower if you’re so inclined. If not, the cute indoor bathroom is tiny but effective.

Location: Chandler

Why You Should Stay Here: Perfect for couples, this petite cabin with an accompanying hot tub is located on a small, private lake.
