Looking for Hotel Alternatives on Coast to Coast Trip

Jump to last reply

I'm driving from Atlanta to Los Angeles in March and hoping to avoid traditional and more costly hotels. I've found some good leads on monasteries & other artist/buddhist/meditation retreats in Mississippi, New Mexico and Arizona that offer rooms and meals. All are either donation based or around $40-$50/night.

Wondering if anyone knows of an app or a website that works with your route like freetrip.com, but instead of locating Best Westerns finds the monasteries, convents, zen retreats, wigwams, etc. Or perhaps someone here has done the coast to coast drive looking for hotel alternatives? Would love to hear ideas.

New here, hope I posted this in the correct place...Thanks for reading!
