When travelling, what level of existential comfort do you require?
I have discovered through hard experience that it's not worth saving the difference between a $60/night motel room and a $100/night hotel room. The bathroom facilities are so much better in the latter, and you actually get a good breakfast (if you're willing to get up early). Not to mention the multiple $60/night motels I've used all seem to have really noisy air conditioning units that shut themselves off and on at random intervals and disrupt your sleep.
