I will soon drive through the North in Italy and due to some unexpected events I will need to be back much earlier than expected. So I want to sleep somewhere along the way and I am trying to find a cheap hotel/motel.
I'm thinking about something like the French “Première classe” hotel chain, cheap (about €35 a night for this one but €40-45 would be fine) and basic but clean and functional. The rooms are the same everywhere, the experience is really bland and they are often located in business parks close to the motorway but all that is a plus in this case. These motels also allow round the clock (self-service) check-in, with a credit card.
Are there chains like that in Italy?
