The iconic roadside motels in the USA are entering a second phase of popularity, but this time with a different approach than originally.
The motor hotels peaked in popularity in the 1960s when car production was ramping up to record levels, and driving to distant places was the new cool.
Half-century later, with the appearance of lodges, boutique hotels, Airbnbs, and other types of private accommodations, motels received tough competitors.
Rye Motor Inn sets a great example of how to turn standard roadside lodging into a boutique motel. Thanks to the thorough renovation with beautiful design touches, this place is not just a good night's rest on a long road trip anymore but a destination in itself.
