We always stay at a motel with coupons and information in the booklets at the welcome centers. When you know at least what state you will be staying in, take the time to stop at the Welcome Centers for that state. They have hotel coupons right inside and they put them outside if they're closed. These descriptions tell you if it's pet friendly or you can call. The welcome center will also make the reservations for you. They're very easy to read and are mapped well for you.

I don't think Hampton Inn takes dogs, but Holiday Inn Express there does. However, the pet fee is $50. That's high. Ad no restaurant.

One other thing. Even when we travel together, my hubby and I like to stay at a place that has its own restaurant so we can have room service and not have to leave the dog alone in the room, and not have to turn around and get in the car again after a long drive in order to eat.

Check out Drury Hotels and see if there are any on your route . They have free "heavy" hors d'oeuvres at around dinner time that you can frequently make a meal from. (There were hot dogs and salad at the one we stayed at recently). The menu changes every day. Also, three free drinks (wine as well as alcohol) per person. All without having to leave the premises.

Oh, and up to two pets per room no charge.
