Roadside Hotels (Motels) in Andalucia
These hotels are located close to a motorway or a major road, and are ideal for anyone undertaking a long car journey across Andalucia, perhaps to discover the lesser-known parts of the region. They offer a convenient place to stay without having to make a detour onto a smaller road to find a hotel after a long day’s driving, although the downside is that they are functional rather than beautiful and full of character.
You can park right outside the hotel, making it convenient if you have heavy luggage, as you won’t have to walk far to your room. Then the next day, you can get straight back on the motorway without any delay to continue your journey. Roadside hotels are also convenient places to stop and eat, whether for a drink, a snack or a full meal, during road trips. Their restaurants or cafes are often open all day long.
