  1. It’s nice that you mentioned how the decision of which type of accommodation you would choose depends on the kind of travel you are going to do. I am planning to go on a solo road trip next week and I am currently looking for good accommodation along my route. I heard there are motor inns now too, so maybe I should try staying in one.
