Road trip tips

Hi,  I'm about to embark on a 6k or so mile road trip; you know, that one I've always wanted to take but have been waiting for the [insert excuse].  Just wondering if anyone has tips on minimizing my lodging budget while maximizing points. Is there any chance at finding lower rates by just showing up and talking to the front desk? Can I safely avoid too much advance planning or do rates often go up the closer to the date of arrival? Any other tips? I do have a Marriott brand rewards card, if that matters. I am about to leave from Chicago with literally no plans other than getting home safely again and a few places I know I want to experience along the way. Thanks in advance!  Jezza
