Good places to get lodging suggestions from locals

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be traveling by car in Spain for 14 days from mid-June. We are both native Spanish speakers. We have a general itinerary planned, however, we can be flexible. We will not be driving in either Madrid or Barcelona. When we have done this, we do not have lodging reservations so we seek suggestions of locals in the towns where we wish to stay a day or two. We have traveled elsewhere in Europe using this method but we hope that someone here could give some advice that would focus our task.
1. Upon entering a city or a town, what are the best places to ask about reasonably priced lodging? We like to find a room first, before sightseeing, in order to avoid leaving luggage in the vehicle.
2. One poster on this site wrote about using a laptop to check websites for deals, etc. Is this method worth the effort and risk of loss of the computer?
