If you travel like we did, you'll end up in many different places, many differents hotels. So you don't regret your choice of stay and since you'll never find the top quality luxurious hotel room for 5$, know what are your right questions.

While in the south, check for conditioned air (or at least a fan). Hot water is also good, but not as important since it's already so hot outside. Up north, the hot water becomes more important, and possibility to close the windows.

Does it have a safe (otherwise, you'll have to carry everything with you, even to go to the grocery)? Is it possible to do laundry, at the hotel or close by (otherwise, ask for a huge sink!)? Is there a parking lot or a bus station close by? Breakfast included and at what time (if not, look for a grocery store near by and a fridge in the room... especially if you've plan a trip early in the morning)?

It's quite simple in fact, but take the time to think about it. What are your specific needs, your travel plans, your activities, your budget... Before you fall in love with the view, the flowers, the jacuzi...!
