If the Super 8 next to the highway doesn’t sound like much of a getaway, then the Harlingen Crane Hotel would be a nice change of pace. There is exactly one room there, and it is at the top of the crane. There is room for two, and you can take advantage of the picnic area. Plus, you will get fabulous views of the harbor and you can actually drive the crane.
Just an hour away from Amsterdam, you can have it to yourself for €299 ($400 US) a night. Pack light, no large suitcase is going to fit into the elevator.
