Remember the good old days when you packed up the old station wagon and headed to that no-frills 1950s era beach motel for a week every summer?
But there's so much more than fading memories to embrace at one of these retro hotels. From the charming facades and neon signs to the mid century architecture, the poppy color scemes, and the flairs that vaguely reference the atomic or space age (that was the '50s and '60s). Plus, did we mention beaches?
