‘For many motorcyclists, and car enthusiasts too I expect, exploring the backroads of America, especially the historic Route 66, would have to be at the top of our bucket list. And at each day’s end, in all its 1950’s neon-lighted retro kitsch splendour, a motel will be there to beckon us. Andrew Beattie aka The Motelorcyclist, not only takes you on a historical journey of America’s motels where you meet an eclectic bunch of characters along the way, but he ensures you will be inspired to live the dream. And with a directory of the 50 motels he explored, you will soon be planning your own journey into the backroads of America and its motels from a bygone era.’
