    Hello. I was wondering if anybody has heard of The Prius Hotel,
    and if so, what connection it has to the vehicle?

    Thank you!

    Correct, it is Hobbit's mod, which he called Motel Prius. My bad.

    When I had to make a trip to Oklahoma, I rigged up a nap board:

    Though i had it on the first trip, it turned out I didn't need it. I found driving 750 miles in one day was quite feasible without needing to take a sleep-over, motel break. My longest trip in one day was just under 1,000 miles in a 24 hour period. The trick is sleep before leaving and not try to do a day's work and then drive 14 hours. Solo driving.

    Exactly. We drive 28hours straight quite often but we get a good night's sleep before hand. :)
