Most people probably have no shortage of ideas as to how to spend whatever tax refund Uncle Sam might grant them this year. According to the Internal Revenue Service, the average individual tax refund in 2015 was $3,155, and based on an average room rate of $85 per night, that amount will get you 37 overnight stays at a Motel 6. With 1300 Motel 6 locations from coast-to-coast, the brand is perfectly situated to be lodging headquarters for the classic American road trip.
Here are some iconic American things you can experience while hanging your hat at a Motel 6:
