Most car-wash lounges don't give customers a hotel-lobby vibe. However, the one at Tempus Auto Spa gets pretty close, surrounding guests with marble countertops, exposed-brick walls, and large windows that cast sunlight onto posh furniture. As they wait here for their vehicle, visitors can sip gourmet coffee or browse the Internet at computer stations. The designer bathrooms' warm colors add to the ambiance—even they are part of the venue's mission to pamper cars and people simultaneously.

CS magazine highlighted Tempus Auto Spa as one business that "make[s] daily duties super swanky." As its waiting area charms clients with all that's chic, so its services indulge vehicles with careful cleaning and detailing. The technicians rely on their own meticulousness instead of traditional car-wash machinery and giant car dunk tanks, even refusing to use mitts and towels for more than a single hand wash. The same manual attention goes into their most comprehensive treatments—the Spankin New Look complete exterior and interior detail, for example, includes an engine cleaning, which technicians can do with steam or by hand.

The beach-themed Laguna Auto Spa pampers vehicles wearied after surfing the streets with washing and detailing services. Washes range from exterior wipe downs with soft cloths to comprehensive cleansing from tire to roof-tethered golden retriever. Express services, such as hand waxing, save time by focusing on one component of auto beauty. More in-depth detailing elevates vehicular aesthetics by adding glossy sheens to steel exoskeletons or conditioning and protecting upholstery. Patrons can tune in to a waiting-room TV or flip leisurely through magazines and fern fronds in an airy space decked out in tropical tiki-hut accoutrements.

On the spray-painted mural alongside El Guaso’s brick exterior, an animated car washes itself with its own hands. Though comical, the mural makes a worthwhile point. El Guaso’s professionally trained staff cleans vehicles just as the vehicles would clean themselves—gently, efficiently, and always by hand. Beyond exterior washes, the team can perform thorough detailing services such as engine cleaning, carpet washing, and installing bifocals on the headlights of older cars. Their kindly nature extends to drivers, as they strive to work within each client’s budget to build an affordable treatment package.

So established is Circle K Midwest that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.

After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Fresh Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
