I did a cross-country ride (27 days) and stayed at motel 6 almost every night, with only a few exceptions. Most are ok, but they charge for wi-fi and for the room price + wi-fi, you can often stay in the motel next door and get a better room, wi-fi and more space. ymmv. In all the ones I stayed at only one was creepy (Florida!). They tend to be farther away from restaurants too. That said, I used them a lot because that are easy to find, have a paper directory with maps to each one, making last- minute route changes easy.
