Phoenix man offers trunk of Tesla for $85 per night to Super Bowl tourists

Jan 29, 2015, 2:16 PM | Updated: 2:16 pm


Hotel rates have spiked across the Phoenix area, but if you still need a place to rest your head, you may be in luck.

Steve has a Tesla, after all.

He is advertising the trunk of his whip on Air BnB as the “World’s 1st TESLA Hotel” — a space fit for two. His Tesla Model S is available for $85 per night, complete with climate control and a 6-foot-6 twin airbed.

From the ad:

It comes with clean sheets, pillows and a blanket or comforter if you like.

**Sorry, NO NBA Players allowed. Despite my love for basketball, the Tesla is just too small for anyone over 6′ 6″. Please…stop asking.

You also get 2 remote controlled candles – (battery powered of course) to help set a fun camping mood in the Tesla.

And, don’t worry, this is no rustic camping trip. Guests will be granted access to more than just Steve’s trunk.

The Tesla will be your private sleeping space that is securely parked in my garage. You will also get access to the Kitchen, Living Room, TV, and Private Bathroom & Shower in the Condo.

As the Tesla is of course my transportation, I would request that you are up by 8am so I can get to work. However, this is very flexible and we can agree on a time the night before of course! You are free to hang out in the Condo and even sleep-in longer on the big comfy couch if you like.

The car owner lives in the Biltmore neighborhood and, as a commercially insured limo driver, is willing to drive guests around town for “an extra fee.”

We want to hear from you.
