Making motel reservations??
I'm planning an 8 month road trip across the country and I like to know that the motel that I've researched will be available when I get there. Will making reservations unreasonably constrict my schedual? Thanks
Plenty of opinions
The topic of reservations is well discussed on this forum -- personally I never make reservations at a motel unless a) it is one I have stayed at before and therefore look forward to returning or b) it is located in a town with a scheduled major event that might make it difficult to find a room when I arrive.
An 8-month roadtrip will (or could have) significant flexibility in the routing and so I would not worry about getting reservations until you arrive in that town/city/area.
