There’s nothing more American than a road trip, and almost as nostalgic as the idea of taking to the open highway is making a pit stop at one of the retro motor lodges that line the country’s major thoroughfares. But . . . not all those accommodations are so retro anymore. Hoteliers and design companies are reimagining these rundown structures as chic boutique hotels that are destination-worthy in and of themselves. From beachfront lodges in Malibu to woodsy escapes in upstate New York, these repurposed motels eschew kitsch for modern design and amenities, giving weary travelers so much more than just a place to rest their heads.
