Do You Intentionally Stay At Kitschy Motels?

Do You Intentionally Stay At Kitschy Motels?

Living in the Midwest, I'm surrounded by open land that is still a little rural and less inhabited than big cities. Along with that comes a more laid back lifestyle and a bit of nostalgia. Vintage motels might be a thing of the past for many, but there's a new wave of folks seeking them out for their vacations. Are you one of them?

I have long since been in love with the look and feel of motels from years gone by. Their signage is great and they make things a bit more fun on a road trip. I've always felt like an odd duck, but I've recently noticed more and more folks seeking out these all but forgotten places to crash.

Do you stay in something modern and more upscale when you travel, or would you be more comfortable in something more manageable wallet-wise with a bit of home town charm? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
