My wife and I are thinking about going cross-country. I'm tired of those big chain hotels. Is there a book or website that can show the smaller drive-up motels?

Motels are "drive-up" by definition: MOtor hoTEL

Are you not driving or towing an RV on this trip?

I don't know what roads you will be traveling. You may want to check out the LINCOLN MOTOR COURT.

It's on US 30 between Bedford and Schellsburg PA. It should be an interesting vintage experience.
Enjoy your trip.

Usually TripAdvisor shows photos of the hotels/motels. It's pretty easy to tell which are the little ones.

I'd be careful in some spots though... often the open hallway Motels are pretty seedy. Another time TripAdvisor will come in handy.

Remind me of those one room cottages in maine, New Hampshire and Vermont that we stayed in back in the 50s. They were everywhere.
