My parents hate traveling with a set schedule. Never on a family vacation did my parents ever book a motel room more than 24 hrs ahead of time. Driving around looking for a vacancy at 8-10 pm was the normal.
Anyway on a particular family trip to the Black Hills we apparently got the last vacancy in Rapid City in the dumpiest/dirtiest/shadiest motel in the State of South Dakota, maybe the worst in the entire United States. 30+ years later and our family still talks about that trip/motel fairly often.
As a result of my parents, I don't travel anywhere without a reservation.
The interwebs are wonderful, other than camping in a tent at Oshkosh while traveling a search for hotel with "bar, swimming pool, and 4 stars or better review" usually seems to please everybody in the car. But interestingly enough, we are right now contemplating a trip in the same direction Bonpas is talking about. Might be a mix of different lodging accommodations if we do.
