You've made the seasonal recipes, shaken a few rosé cocktails, and even crossed some items off your summer bucket list, yet it's still hard to believe it's August. If it seems like the warmest season is slipping through your fingers, it may be time to book a quick getaway. And while it's easy to think it's too late to plan a trip or that everything good is booked, there are still plenty of options, and many design-forward boutique hotels around the U.S. have availability this month. Scroll down for a few of our favorite last-minute hotels and destinations.
Last-Minute Hotels To Visit For An Amazing Summer Getaway
Located on California's Central Coast, just north of San Luis Obispo, Cambria Beach Lodge is a renovated roadside motel off Highway 1 with the kind of retro beach vibe you want at the tail end of summer.
Set amidst the moors of Provincetown, this low-key paradise prides itself on an absence of the nautical decor Cape Code is infamous for. And though its waterfront may be bayside, its heated pool is open all summer long.
A hotel owned by Pharrell Williams is a guaranteed good time, but in case there was any doubt, The Goodtime Hotel's name makes it clear. In between beach hangs, you can sip pretty cocktails on the pastel-hued pool deck.
Located at the base of the Rocky Mountains in downtown Colorado City, Kinship Landing places guests in proximity to the great outdoors while keeping dining, shopping, and more within walking distance. Stay here and turn your last-minute vacation dreams into a reality.
If you'd like to be near the ocean while enjoying the hustle and bustle of a city, Charleston makes an ideal getaway. At Emeline, you can explore the historic district's pastel-dotted cobblestone streets in the morning, head to the beach for the afternoon, and return to the hotel each night for mid-century vibes.
Situated on the banks of Brushy Creek just outside Austin, this waterfront retreat will color its way into your heart — especially once you realize watermelon margaritas can be delivered to your chaise lounge at the pool.
Imagine a summer camp grew up and hired an interior designer, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what a stay at Coachman is like. A five-minute walk from Lake Tahoe, the hotel is actually a pair of renovated mid-century motels that features a pool and hot tub, complimentary bikes, nightly bonfires with s'mores, and craft beers on tap.
Ocean views abound at this hotel that embodies low-key luxury in Long Island's easternmost town. Let one day will flow into the next as you go from beach to pool and back again.
Ten minutes away from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park, this glamping resort allows you to sleep under the big Montana sky in a king-size bed inside one its West Elm-bedecked tents. On the grounds, you'll find a seasonal restaurant and nightly bonfires with s'mores.
This bay-front property may be located in the seaside town of Newport, but you really don't need to venture out and about. With a coffee shop, poolside restaurant, fire-pit bar, and seasonal restaurant that's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this last-minute hotel delivers everything you'll need on-site.
Located near Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon national parks as well as Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, this pet-friendly resort is a mix of modern cabins and Airstream trailers. But with a sparkly blue pool and hot tub, private bathhouses with indoor-outdoor showers, and a drive-in movie theater on site, your Western getaway will hardly be rugged.
For a not-so-quintessential Jersey Shore experience, head to this colorful hotel just two blocks from the beach and boardwalk. While the town itself is in full shore mode in August, there's plenty to do at the hotel itself with two rooftop bars, a music venue, a diner, and café.
If you can take the Louisiana heat, there is no better porch to fan yourself on than the one at The Chloe. This renovated Victorian mansion in the Garden District is a design-lover's dream, and it features a pool in the backyard and a seasonal Creole restaurant in the lobby.
