Finding Hotels with Quality Wi-Fi...

Alert Cronovirus (COVID-19)

     Almost everywhere, many shops and restaurants are shutting down, opening fewer hours or takeout only. The same is increasingly true of hotels and motels, especially high end hotels in urban areas. The facilities near the Interstate Highways might be the best bet. But be sure to call ahead right before you depart.
   If you do decide to stay in a facility soon, see our ideas on how you might lessen your exposure.

A few examples...

The Worst of the worst

motel 6

  Our experience has been that Motel 6 is the worst of the worst. Some have no wifi at all, most of the rest have terrible coverage that's limited to just a few rooms, most charge a daily fee, with only a few available slots. So if you check in in the evening, they may be sold out and you won't have any access even though they advertise "wi-fi available".

A Little better

super8 days inn

  Our experience is that Super 8's are mostly franchised and turnover is frequent. So the internet access is undependable. In addition, some of them have no password required, which makes the connection extremely easy to hack into. Recommend you call ahead and verify a password is required, and ask how often it's changed.

You get what you pay for, usually. National chains that don't franchise or actually monitor the ones they do generally offer a major step up in quality of internet access.
