Motels are so Inn

A refreshing change from the super hip hotel a la The Standard or giant mega resort aka MGM Grand is the motel. Do not be scared of its meager two stories or its ample parking near the front door of your room. Room service? No, vending machines, but there usually are complimentary pastries and coffee if you can get your teed ass outta bed before 10am. The Sun'n and Sands Motel in Huntington Beach, a prime example, is right across the street from the ocean, clean, comfortable and reasonable. These types of places usually offer AAA discounts as well. So next time you plan on taking a weekend get away or road trip with your bros, consider your family owned motel. It might be cheaper and you won't have to tip a bell hop or valet. (photo credit Las Angelenas.blogspot.com)

I don't mind motels... Nor do I mind roaches or random locks of hair. However, there is something to be said for robes, champagne in the mini-fridge. and Mr. Slacks.
