Default How to find nearby hotels for Oregon prisons

The easiest way (IMO) to find a hotel nearby any prison:

1. go to google maps
2. type in the address of the institution into the big search bar at the top of the page
3. hit the little button that looks like a magnifying glass
4. on the left, the address will be displayed next to a large letter "A"
5. Underneath the address from #4 is a small link that says "search nearby"
6. click that link and another text box will appear - type in "hotel"
7. click the "search" button to the left of where you typed in "hotel"

That should show you a bunch of hotels in the area near the prison's address.

Google maps has changed their user interface slightly.

To use the "nearby" feature as of this writing, type in the address of the institution. It will show a map of the institution, then to the left of the map there's a menu with a picture of the location. Under the picture there is an icon that looks like a map pin with a circle in it - click that and it has "hotels" as one of the options. Often the hotels listed show prices as well.

The map will also display the location of the hotels as red pins on the map.

Another option: AirBnB can often find you closer/cheaper places to stay in the area you're visiting. Their search engine as of this post is pretty decent.
