Beckham Creek Cave Lodge,

Want to feel like Batman without having to wear a set of pointy ears? Then stay at this sweet-ass hotel that’s built into the side of a giant cave (or you could wear your underwear outside your pants and kick a clown in the gonads).

<a href="" target="_blank">The Library Hotel,<br> New York</a>-

If you’re feeling sophisticated (or want to impress a girl who’s smarter than you), try the Library Hotel. Each floor is based on a different Dewey decimal system category, while the rooms themselves explore topics in that genre. Try to have sex quietly!

<a href="" target="_blank">Aurora Ice Museum,<br> Alaska</a>-

Need to cool down? Try a room carved out of ice! Due to some strange safety regulations, it’s not allowed to advertise its bedrooms (hence “museum,” not “hotel”). They do exist, however, so just ask the friendly snowmen at reception.

<a href="" target="_blank">Old Faithful Inn,<br>Wyoming</a>-

Standing right next to Yellowstone’s famous Old Faithful geyser, this incred­ible building will take your breath away faster than the hydrogen-sulfide fumes drifting around the hot springs outside.

<a href="" target="_blank">Jules’ Undersea Lodge,<br>Florida</a>-

If you love fish, hate claustrophobes, and have always wondered what life would be like after the apocalypse, have we got a hotel for you! Accessible only by scuba-diving 21 feet below the surface of the sea, it’s a whole new way to wet the bed.

<a href="" target="_blank">Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, Arkansas</a>-

Ever thought, This romantic getaway is nice, but I could do with being surrounded by lions a bit more? Prepare to get happy: This big-cat sanctuary is neck-deep in lions, tigers, cougars, and bobcats. It also has quality lodging. Go get ’em, tiger!

<a href="" target="_blank"> Post Ranch Inn,<br>Big Sur, California</a>-

Live out your Ewok village fantasies (note: you shouldn’t have Ewok village fantasies) by staying in a treehouse built into the leafy boughs of a Big Sur forest. Admire the majesty of nature, then get lost in the woods trying to feed trail mix to a chipmunk.
