Nevermind the untold legions of Best Westerns, La Quinta Inns and Econolodges that dot highways all around the country. A Texas-based hotel company is attempting to bring back the classic American motor court with a new brand of "ranch tech" properties that are modeled on the old roadside motels from the 1950s.
Which technically went out of style in the 60s during Eisenhower's Federal Aid Highway Act. But hey, that was fifty years ago, and who's to say Americans still can't be thrilled by a cool motel concept? The first of these, named the Lone Star Court, will open in Austin in 2013, and, appropriately, will feature live music, a fire pit, and a dipping pool.

Here's the deal with in-room amenities. Hotel rooms should be fun. They should be exciting places to stay that offer things you don't normally find in your boring old bedroom.
So if a responsible, decision-making adult wants to indulge in a 1930s-themed room, complete with cocktail shakers, naughty girl playing cards, Lucky Lights candy cigarettes, pre-programmed iPods, and a copy of The Great Gatsby, then they are absolutely entitled to do so. Just as long as they learn to share their toys with their friends.
