    Planning a little road trip. When it was just myself and a buddy or one of them old girlfriends it really did not matter much where we stayed. Never even called ahead for reservations.

    Now I plan on using the internet somehow to make sure I don't end up with my wife yelling at me for picking a Super8 "on the wrong side of the tracks" just because it was cheap lol.

    I seem to recall some zip code based maps which pretty much told you where the ghettos were. Can't find them now. Any tips? I just fired up Google Earth so I could get some streat level views.

    Cincinnati, Dayton, and someplace in eastern Ohio are my particular points of interest.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just Google map your destination. Highlight it, then choose "search nearby". Type in ho tell.
    Reviews are available and are generally accurate.
    And tell the Mrs. not to sweat the small shit. Life's short.
