Hotels.com wants to pay you thousands to go to the beach, visit hotels

Who wouldn’t want to get paid to sit on a beach front and sip a cool drink? That desire could be your fact if you enter a new contest from Lodges.com.

The resort booking web-site is looking for a “Retro Seaside Motelier” who will get paid out $15,000 to pay a visit to the company’s “10 ideal retro seaside motels” throughout the U.S. this summer. The dollars involves a $10,000 vacation stipend — the accommodations are much-flung throughout the nation, from Florida and Maine to Washington condition and southern California — and a $5,000 “wage” to expend on regardless of what you like for the duration of your travels.

Accommodations.com says it will also outfit the contest winner with sunscreen, umbrellas, classic sunglasses, a cooler, a solar-run AM/FM radio and a retro polaroid digital camera. The only necessity for the winner: Use that digital camera to doc the trip “for long term generations.”

To utilize, you can have to fill out an on-line questionnaire that asks for your Instagram handle and includes prompts like “If you time traveled to the ’50s, who would you spend your seashore holiday vacation with?” and “Describe why the retro seaside motel is your fantastic someplace.”

The company states it’ll choose a winner dependent on three metrics: creative imagination and originality, high-quality of submission and fit to concept.

The winning traveler’s itinerary features outdated-school boutique beach motels throughout the state, like San Diego’s The Pearl Hotel and The Montauk Seashore Property in Lengthy Island, New York. The motels occur from Accommodations.com’s recent rating of the leading 10 “retro seaside motels” in the U.S., primarily based on factors like typical visitor scores, motel design and style, value value and location.
