1: Discovering Hotwire. The savings we bagged with it enabled us to stay clear of dodgy motels (see below) for much of our trip.
2: Catching a night at the Hotel Monaco Baltimore and finding out there's no lawsuit or auction going on with the hotel.
4: Seeing the baths of our dreams (even if we were staying down the road) at the Blackstone in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.
1: Getting unintentionally high in LA at the Avalon, thanks to the flimsy walls and some toking neighbours (we realise that this wouldn’t normally be a low, but we’re disapproving mainly of said flimsy walls).
5: Getting a call from a random man in the middle of the night during a stay at a Motel 6 in Arkansas, asking if we fancied any “company” in our single room. That was when we decided we were over the budget brands and decided to Hotwire it for the rest of our stay.
