A friend and I are going to the USA for 6 weeks in September 2013. We want to do route 66 and I have been doing a little research into it.
So far it seems to be working out pretty expensive to travel,and we want to have a budget in our head before heading off. We will be travelling from Chicago-LA, hiring a car and probably staying in Motels. I realise that 6 weeks is a long time to do Route 66, but we were hoping to take some de-tours and see other places along the way.
Is there any motel chains or similar where we could get a price for some nights stay, as we wont want to book anything in advance for specific dates as we dont really know where we will be from one day to the next??
Also, is there a general idea as to how much we would need to budget for accommodation along the way? If anyone out there has any tips on places to see, or things to see/do on or off the Route we would geatly appreciate it as this will be our first time travelling this route.
Thank you all in advance for any advice you can give....
