In late august/early september, I'll be renting a car to get me from Vancouver to Boston. The plan is to cross over from Canada into the US about halfway across (around Regina). The obvious question that comes to me is how to deal with lodging. I don't have a lot of money to spend on it, but I would like to avoid camping.
Do I need to worry about this in advance, or can I rely on their being enough decent motels etc along the roads so that I can plan as I go, or should I take some care in advance to check out exactly where to stay and make my reservations?
