The Ultimate Airstream Hotel Guide | 2020 Update
With the rise of nomad culture and the growth of AirBnb, it only makes sense that Airstream Hotels are popping up across the USA.
These hotels get you connected to nature and offer unique experiences. Not to mention, the price is usually less than standard hotel prices. We may be biased (currently living and traveling full time in a vintage Airstream), but we think everyone should spend at least one night in these iconic trailers.
Today we’re featuring the five best Airstream hotels in America! In addition to price, amenity and location info, we’ll rank each site with a specific “Airstream Hotel Vibes” to give you an overall sense of the property.
Let’s dive in!
Hotel Luna Mystica
Location: Taos, New Mexico
Why You’ll Love It: Vintage Airstreams, local breweries and an unobstructed view of the night sky. Hotel Luna Mystica has all the vibes. Taos is a mysterious place, and this Airstream hotel sets the stage perfectly.
Hotel Luna Mystica offers multiple vintage Airstream trailers. All the trailers have been beautifully restored to maintain the original style.
Additionally, other various vintage campers (Avions, Spartans, Mobile Scout) are available to rent. They even has a vintage trailer hostel – nightly beds available for $30.
Let’s not forget – there’s a brewery directly across the street. Grab a brew, listen to live music, and crash for the night in an Airstream…sounds like a day in life of Matthew Mcconaughey!
What’s The Word: A recent Google reviewer says, “We stayed at the Yogi ❤ and I fell in love immediately. Not just with our trailer but the environment/ vibe there. Sooo peaceful and beautiful. The Yogi was very clean and well maintained. I definitely plan to visit bimonthly 😍 the staff are pretty dope too 😎👍🏽 a 10 min drive into town, and a 1 minute walk to the brewery…I love this place !! 😭❤”
Airstream Hotel Vibes: 8.9/10 Tao + Airstreams + Beer = Perfection
Location: Midpines, California
Why You’ll Love It: Spice up your trip to Yosemite National Park with an Airstream hotel room! AutoCamp seriously focuses on the details. From materials to decor, each Airstream has been completely modernized.
The Classic Airstream Suite includes a queen size bed, flat screen tv, spa-inspired bathroom, luxury robes and a private outside deck.
AutoCamp offers other unique camping styles as well; try out their luxury tent, classic cabin suite, or X-suite.
What’s The Word: A recent Google reviewer says, “Dozens of Airstream trailers set up in a campground atmosphere but there’s no roughing it there. Large swimming pool, class A modern designed club house with a campy feel that looks like it was designed by a famous architect. It’s only been in operation for about a year now, or less, and if you want to stay there on a weekend or holiday, you better get reservations well in advance.”

Shooting Star RV Resort
Location: Escalante, Utah
Why You’ll Love It: Shooting Star RV Resort creates an immersive vintage trailer experience. Their Airstreams has been restored to the original feel. The decor, decade-appropriate, brings you back in time.

What’s The Word: Nancy on Google Reviews says, “Peaceful rest stop with very cool concept! You can watch old style movies in their own Drive-In while relaxing in there classic 50s cars! The owner is great! Very helpful and accommodating, even told us a great place to eat for dinner and was concerned about Wildlife on the roads while driving at night!”
Airstream Hotel Vibes: 7.5/10 This place is for lovers of all things vintage!
Location: Marfa, Texas
Price: $75 and up
Why You’ll Love It: It’s got those bohemian vibes! Marfa, Texas is a funky desert town, and El Cosmic is a perfect representation of that funk.
They have multiple trailers available. However, you can’t specifically book an Airstream online. Give them a call for specific Airstream requests.
The hotel hosts many activities; themed appropriately weird! Cosmic Karaoke, Hot Dogs & Corn Hole, and Big Sky Yoga are among their upcoming events.
What’s The Word: Kate on Google Reviews says, “Loved our stay here. Cute modern hippie vibe. Lots of cool (but expensive) things in the gift shop. Bed in our trailer was extremely comfortable. Loved the newsletter they print with lots of helpful art gallery and restaurant recommendations. Right next to the Chinati foundation and walking distance of the galleries and restaurants in town.”
Airstream Hotel Vibes: 7.6/10 Boho Airstreams in the Texas desert!
Hicksville Trailer Plaza and Artist Retreat
Location: Joshua Tree, California
Why You’ll Love It: This quirky Airstream hotel is a true artist retreat. The founders, both professional creatives, have built a space that inspires with equal doses of nostalgia and comfort.
There’s even a recording studio on site!
Hicksville Trailer Plaza offers some modern amenities including; solar heated saltwater pool, archery & bb gun range, mini golf and a bar trailer for events.
Keep in mind, the park is 21+ due to its cannabis friendly policy. They have two “family weeks” each year, allowing all the kids to visit!
What’s The Word: Ivy on Yelp says, “I really liked staying here and want to come back! They don’t do things like a regular hotel or anything.. BUT it is a really cool place and it is probably that way because they have these strict rules.. it is pretty neat how it is very private and off the grid… you feel like you are really in the middle of nowhere and no one knows where you are… We stayed in the zombie room which was nice and cozy… kind of scary..”
Airstream Hotel Vibes: 9.4/10 One of a kind experience (and can go down a deep rabbit hole reading the Yelp reviews!)
