I suspect I could have gotten us a more conveniently located motel or campground, even though most signs I saw said "No Vacancy." But in terms of parenting convenience, this motel is pretty great. We are located just a few feet away from a cozy, hunting-lodge style lobby, so when Alice needs to be quiet because Beatrice is down for sleep, Alice and a parent can easily and enjoyably decamp to the lobby. Also, the breakfast area gives out onto a deck from which we have a beautiful view of the distant mountains...and evidently steam plumes from the geothermal features early in the morning. We are allowed to use the breakfast area to cook, so I had the easiest time so far in a motel preparing our dinner on a nice big counter with a hot water spigot and the communal microwave. And lastly, the Super 8 is attached to a KOA, which has a playground, which Alice and Daddy are currently enjoying as I wait for Beatrice to stop wriggling around and finally fall asleep for her morning nap.
