9 fun and funky vacation hotel stays
Hotel: Wigwam Motel, San Bernadino, Calif.
Description: On famous U.S. Route 66, the Wigwam Motel has welcomed families since 1949, whether arriving then by station wagon or now by hybrid car. In California's lazy and warm Inland Empire, the Wigwam's 19 30-foot-tall teepees encircle a pool. Each wigwam is made from wood, concrete and sun-friendly stucco, and all come equipped with a Serta Perfect Sleeper bed, free Wi-Fi and HBO. Not authentic by a long shot, but definitely hits that kitschy-cool spot.
Rates: Varies, but average around $77 per night single occupancy and $88 per night double occupancy.
