Road trip! See roadside America on somebody else's dime - Motel 6 seeks 'correspondents' to travel the U.S. this summer

Anyone out there itching to see roadside America -- on somebody else's dime? Motel6

Motel 6 is putting out the call for three "open road correspondents," who would travel one of three classic routes July 16 to Sept. 3 - using social media to document the journey.

The hotel company's 50th anniversary contest also has a green angle; 'correspondents' will use environmentally-friendly vehicles and digital map applications, and will stay at Motel 6 locations that have been updated with recycled flooring, low-flow toilets and energy-efficient lighting.

The Carrollton-based Accor North America is accepting contest entries on its Facebook page.

Winners and one companion each will travel one of these three routes:

  • Route 66 (Amarillo, Texas, to Santa Monica, Calif.)
  • The Pacific Coast Highway (Tumwater, Wash., to Santa Barbara, Calif.)
  • Southern Route (Austin, Texas, to Destin, Fla.)

Each prize package is valued at $6,000 and includes two third generation, 64GB, Wi-Fi enabled iPads, according to a Motel 6 press release.

Candidates are asked to submit a two-minute video by June 15, explaining what would make them a good correspondent.

Facebook fans will vote on finalists, then winners will be notified by July 6.

Candidates must be U.S. residents and at least 21 years old, with a valid driver's license.
