Over the past couple years we’ve taken a handful of road trips and on the road, our choice in hotel has usually been Hampton Inns whenever it’s possible. Sometimes we’ll drive the extra miles just to stay at a Hampton Inn, too. We like that they have free wifi, and they are clean and consistent. At the end of a day after a long drive, you just want to know what to expect and not have to crawl into bed with a sleeping bag.
But even staying at Hampton Inns can add up, so a lot of times we either take shifts and drive impossibly long hours or we are couchsurfing with friends. We know that we would not be able to afford a lot of our trips if it wasn’t for our friends that have let us crash in their guest rooms, couches, or inflatable beds. This post is dedicated to them. :)
These are some of our favorite road trips made possible by these nice folks above:
- Los Angeles to Seattle
- Vegas > LA > Big Sur > SF > Napa Valley > Mono Lake
- Death Valley National Park
We’re so grateful for their hospitality and grateful that they have opened up their homes and hearts to us!
Have you ever tried couchsurfing before? With strangers? :)
