These are photos of many of the budget hotels/motels that I stayed in when I was on a solo cross-country cycling trip across the US. I remain fascinated by the design choices of both the chain hotels and privately-owned establishments, as well as the relative upkeep of each place. Often times, the owners were first generation American, which was surprising to me because this area is often thought of as "quintessentially American", the Heartland.
