A Holiday Inn outside Trieste, Italy.Yes, there are roadside motels in Italy. In fact, a few years ago the autostrade (highways) started sprouting little signs letting you know how many kilometers to the next exit with a Holiday Inn.
I would still encourage you to head all the way into a town to enjoy an accommodation with a bit more character in the historic center (whether a hotel, B&B, apartment, or whatever)—or, if you want to stay in the outskirts, an agriturismo (farm stay). However, sometimes a quick and easy (and cheap) roadside motel fits the bill perfectly.
InterContinental Hotels (www.ichotelsgroup.com ) - Another mighty chain of familiar names—with a surprising number of properties in Italy. Italy has many Holiday Inn Hotels and Holiday Inn Express, as well as several InterContinental Hotels and Resorts and Crowne Plaza Hotels. (So far, none from the company's other brands, Hotel Indigo, Staybridge Suites, and Candlewood Suites).
Accor Hotels (www.accorhotels.com) - Accor's Ibis Hotel chain (www.ibishotel.com) is the Motel 6 of Europe, with Italian branches across Northern Italy (Milan, Verona, Como, Padova, Cremona, Milan-Malpensa) and now northern Florence and suburban Rome. Ibis is owned by Accor (the French company that long ran Motel 6 and Red Roof Inns in the States), which also fields several increasingly upscale brands from the Holiday Inn–style Mercure (www.mercure.com) to the business-oriented Novotel (www.novotel.com) to the high-end Sofitel (www.sofitel.com).
