It is hard to recommend because there are many great hotels. I found some in the following. You can take reference.
1. Seyearn Boutique Hotel (Beijing Road Tangzi Lane Metro Station): No.68, Wujing Rd, Guandu District. CNY300-500/night.
2. Dachanghang hotel (Kunming Changshui International Airport): 16 Building, Hangjingyuan, Changshuihang city, Guandu District. CNY150-450/night.

It is suggested to go to Qinhuangdao firstly. You can take shuttle bus at Gate 1 of T3 Departure Hall and Gate 15 on the F1 of T2. It costs CNY140 with 4 hours and departs from 10:00, 13:00, 15:00, 18:00, 20:00. Then take bus No.34 from Qinhuangdao Railway Station to Beidaihe District Government Station, and walk north of 300m to your destination. It costs CNY2 with 1.5 hours.
