Ah, to each his/her own. We avoid Motel 6s now because we've had thin blankets, hard old mattresses, questionable locations, and VERY interesting neighbors (next door and in the thread-bare carpet). But everyone should have their own choice of staying where they would like and can afford. We happen to like KOAs.

I am not about to pay those high camping fees for a small hunk of land just big enough to park my camper on overnight. Nor will I pay $100 or more a night to get a motel and warm the bed overnight and hit the road again.
No bed bugs in my camper, and I have my own personal belongings. I haul my camper so I can have my own place. However I do not like paying the big bucks to haul my camper to a fancy high priced resort campground. Maybe if having kids I would consider Yogi Bear campground, or a KOA, but for now being retired, I need the basics at a low price just so I can travel just a bit. Therefor I have avoided all KOA's because of their high costs when traveling.
If I am not mistaken, you can always camp at a tent site at a KOA, all you really need is use of their facilities. I sometimes ask for a tent site and have gotten them at several KOA's, about 50% less than hookup sites. Some Koa's however would not allow this. Depends on owner. Sometimes I pull in after hours and just nap in my unit parked at the office and I'm gone before they open next day. If it seems nice I may stay around for another night and get a site.
