We've got our trip planned for 1st September onwards, flights booked and we're just booking our first couple of weeks accomodation so that we know we've got places to stay and reach each day. We've booked some days inn, some best western and some independent b&b's so far. We're going to be on the road for nealt 3 months and wanted to keep cost down as much as possible and hence registered for the days inn card etc to try and get points for free nights. The problem ive now got is that ive just started reading reviews of some of these places on tripadvisor and virtually every days inn place has a review like it stinks, theres bed bugs everywhere and they're all dirty and a health hazard!!! Has anyone got anything good to say about these places, I sort of assumes that in the US in 2009, all hotels must be of a pretty reasonable standard because you guys dont accept anything less, but am I being naive? We've chosen hotels etc over trying to camp because i like a good nights sleep and i like to know ive got some food in the morning, altho again there any many reports of stale pastries and watered down OJ!!! What is the truth? Any experiences welcomed?
