Myself and a few friends are planning a 6 or 7 day roadtrip at the end of May, starting and ending in LA, with Vegas and Grand Canyon as the only definite destinations so far.
I'm hoping to leave accomodation decisions to a night by night basis. Is it realistic to think that the movie stereotype roadside motels are not too hard to come across, and what would I expect to pay for a room?
Considering the driving times does anyone have any suggested routes (incorporating at least a bit of Route 66) where other interesting things might not take too much extra distance to get to, given that I think it's a already a fair bit of driving for 7 days since we don't want to be in the car every day, or towns/lakes/rivers etc along the way where it might be nice to spend a night to break up the driving?
Thanks very much for any info
