A Holiday Inn outside Trieste, Italy.Yes, there are roadside motels in Italy. In fact, a few years ago the autostrade (highways) started sprouting little signs letting you know how many kilometers to the next exit with a Holiday Inn.
I would still encourage you to head all the way into a town to enjoy an accommodation with a bit more character in the historic center (whether a hotel, B&B, apartment, or whatever)—or, if you want to stay in the outskirts, an agriturismo (farm stay). However, sometimes a quick and easy (and cheap) roadside motel fits the bill perfectly.
InterContinental Hotels (www.ichotelsgroup.com) - Around its major cities, Italy has a few dozen Holiday Inn Hotels and Holiday Inn Express Hotels (not to mention, in town, their nicer, fancier cousins, InterContinental Hotels and Resorts and Crowne Plaza Hotels).
Accor Hotels (www.accorhotels.com) - Accor's Ibis (www.ibishotel.com) is the Motel 6 of Europe, with Italian branches across Northern Italy (Milan, Verona, Como, Padova, Cremona) and now Florence and suburban Rome. Ibis is owned by Accor (the French company that runs Motel 6 and Red Roof Inns in the States), which also fields several increasingly upscale brands from the Holiday Inn–style Mercure (www.mercure.com) to the business-oriented Novotel (www.novotel.com) to the high-end Sofitel (www.sofitel.com).
