Far Rockaway, New York
Born as a year-round retro beach getaway for the New York (hipster) set. This transformed clam bar is no Super 8, with 12 artist-designed and very comfortable rooms, but the ethos remains: affordable, no televisions and communal bathrooms. Like most of the new-gen motels, this is not a rest-stop but a destination - thanks to its buzzing indoor and outdoor bars and roster of DJs and live acts.
