It came up recently that I dislike better-grade motels because it's awkward to deal with lots of big, heavy, equipment cases if you have to drag them through a central entry, down a hall, and into a nice "secure" room with no direct entry from the outside. Most older, cheaper places are set up so you can pull right up to the door of your room. They also tend to have a microwave and a small refridgerator to appeal to customers who wouldn't be caught dead calling room service anyhow. Of course I also like spending less money. On top of that, cheap motels just seem to provide endless picture opportunities.
If there is a restaurant or dining room adjacent, it's usually good for a picture or two as well.
