Are you tired of staying at the same old hotel time and time again?
Perhaps you’re looking for something more exciting—maybe even quirky!
Well, Proud American Traveler has put together a list of fun, adventurous, and quirky hotels you can plan to stay on your next trip!
Gamirasu Cave Hotel
This exquisite 30-room cave is located in Cappadocia, Turkey in what used to be an old Byzantine monastic retreat a thousand years ago. This hotel provides a luxury feel while also giving you simplicity and serenity.
The hotel is comprised of 30 rooms from 7 old houses, a majority of which had been used by Christian monks up until recently. The walls are structured from volcanic rock that keeps the rooms at a standard temperature year-round.
The landscape that surrounds Gamirasu is truly stunning and full of natural wonders like fairy chimneys. Cappadocia is also a very popular tourist destination, especially for photographers.
Hotel H20 is a truly unique hotel. Guests have the option to book a room with an entire wall that’s actually a live aquarium. If that’s not exciting enough, you can book a room with jelly fish tanks!
Want a view of the ocean but not crazy about the aquarium idea? Book the bay-view option.
Hotel H20 has an excellent fitness center, spa, and lounge as well.
The Verb Hotel
The Verb is a must-stay for music lovers. Located across from Fenway Park, this retro-themed hotel is one part fun and one part music history.
All rooms come complete with rock décor, a 47” tv, and a record player (there’s a vinyl library in the lobby). Be prepared to hear music and hear it loudly!
Their on-site restaurant is a Japanese tavern with a rock-and-roll/pop-culture theme. I mean, who doesn’t want to play Pac-Man at their table while they wait for sushi?
Colorful murals also decorate the outside walls, giving this tavern an entirely unique atmosphere.
Free Spirit Spheres
Qualicum Beach, British Columbia
The Free Spirit Spheres are three luxury treehouses with spheres suspended in the forest canopy.
The Melody sphere (named after the birds singing in the forest) is a beautifully painted fiberglass sphere with a spacious open-living concept. It sleeps up to 2 in a Murphy bed, has 5 windows—which includes a skylight—a sink, and cupboards with dishes. Under the large windows, a bench and seats fold down to make a work area.
Best of all, it has built-in speakers and adjustable lighting.
Historic Route 66, Arizona
Perhaps the most quirky of hotels on this list, Wigwam Motels and their infamous teepees used to have several locations throughout the U.S.
Only two now remain. The more well-known location is Wigwam Motel 6 in Holbrook, Arizona right off the historic Route 66 (also known as the Gateway to Petrified Forest National Park).
This location gained its popularity due to its proximity to Native American reservations.
There are several vintage cars along the motel, which has maintained its retro feel.
In 2012, the Wigwam Motel was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
