We took I-75 northbound to Sault Ste. Marie, where we checked in at the Plaza Motor Motel. It was an incredibly inexpensive room: quite the bargain at $49/night. We could have been pardoned for being a little wary about what we would find, but the room was easily nicer than others we've stayed at for over twice the price. There were tons of little details and decorative touches. It was homey and yet elegant, and a very welcome surprise. We went to Wal-Mart to get some groceries for tomorrow's breakfast. Afterward, we were starving, so we ordered pizzas from Hungry Howie's and Chris brought it back to the motel room.
