If washoku is inscribed as world heritage, so should the American motels be. This accommodation format provides a set of functionality, flexibility and a bonus nostalgia to all car travellers, with low cost.

This one is in classical L-shaped layout, and ease of access to our car from the room was fantastic after experiencing all sorts of parking lot hassles in Bay area, including a maze of multi-story underground lots, a security gate that needs to be opened only by talking to the operator via a hard-to-hear door phone etc., all those UX nightmares.
