When the holidays roll by, it can be a bit of a challenge to figure out what to do with your time. Some of us are lucky enough to be able to plan ahead of time, and can, therefore, go on amazing adventures or to stunning locations.
However, for those of us who don’t have tons of cash to spend on a vacation or simply aren’t up for having to travel abroad, we’re often left thinking about what to do with our vacation time over the curse of the holidays and by the time we decide – they’re practically over! Recently, the good old-fashioned road trip has become popular again. The reason why? We think these glamorous motels have something to do with it!
When we think of motels, we picture cheap, distasteful, and out-of-date furniture, horrible interiors, and motels situated directly on loud and noisy main roads and the other gritty or nasty things that tend to happen in places like that.
However, in recent years, we’ve seen a revival of the humble American motel and they’ve actually become a pretty stylish and fashionable place to vacation again! Gone are the days of cheap veneer, linoleum floors, and green, plastic-littered swimming pools. Hello, fresh carpets, stylish interiors, and modern touches!
If you’re looking for new motels that are both cheap and stylish – these are our top three. First, we have the Coachman Hotel in California. This hotel is styled beautifully and provides really great value for money as well as spacious rooms and an amazing open-plan shared living space for those who like to mingle.
The second is the Drifter Motel in Louisiana. This place certainly won’t have you feeling like a drifter as many of the stylish and modern rooms feel like scenes from a Country & Home magazine rather than a motel!
Finally, if you ever find yourself in need of a place to stay in Colorado, then the Amigo Motor Lodge is definitely worth checking out. They offer large and modern rooms for a great rate and are just far enough from the road to offer you some silence, but not so far that you have to detour too much to get there. Double bonus!
