Hi, my husband and I are planning to do a road trip this december from Vancouver to Stockton and back, expending no more than 2 days traveling coming and 2 days going. We don't have a car so we're planing to rent one, we would like to expend one night each way in some town that we don't know yet. Any advice about good, clean, nice, cheap hotel on the way? about weather? snow? any way of saving some money on the trip? Thanks!
