4 Nights in Lisbon: Neighborhood & Accommodation suggestions??

Taking a long layover in Lisbon (May 21 - May 25, 2014) on my way home to the States. I decided to stop in Lisbon because it looks like I can enjoy the beach plus do a little sightseeing (I hope the weather is warm at that time of year). I am leaning towards staying near the beach and taking the train into Lisbon city center, but open to suggestions. It's just me, so I don't need anything fancy, just safe, clean and easy to get around using without a rental car. My budget is $85 or less a night if possible, but not set in stone. B&B, Guest House, Apartment or Hotel are all fine - just not a dorm style hostel - I prefer my own room and bath if possible, but that's not a deal breaker.

Hi, Erin.
I am just replying to this one post, not your other, similar one. Lisbon is a great city to spend 4 nights and you won't run out of things to see just in that city. For starters, please see Rick's At a Glance list of sightseeing options for several cities at You can get all the details, plus our hotel recommendations in Ricks' guidebooks, but note that the Portugal book currently for sale is a 2013 edition, while the Lisbon Snapshot book is only a 2010 edition (until new stock comes in), therefore we recommend the newer book. Most of the destinations on the Portugal list are easily accessible by train or bus.
