Subject: Favorite hotel/motel chain in the US?
Hi Ziners,

When on the road or spending a few days here and there in the US do you have a favorite inexpensive hotel chain?

Nine out of ten times we end up in Hampton Inn. I find the HI pleasant enough and clean, offering good rates.

Last week-end we were pleasantly surprised by the Hampton Inn at Palm Beach Gardens in Florida, this is an up scale property, most rooms have a nice view over a garden with a huge fountain, plants, flowers and some classical statues and Roman columns and arches! Can you believe it?

There is a nice terrace with a large awning facing same garden. Lobby and rooms are decorated in an eclectic English style. Free mineral water and chocolate cookies in the rooms. I highly recommend it.
