Default Short Flight or Long Drive?

Our pup comes him in about 5 weeks and since we live close to Buffalo, the original plan was to have the breeder fly her into that airport. Probably take us a couple hours to get home, perhaps more depending on any hang ups at the airport.

Now it appears I will be in the US on business and have began to consider driving to the breeders which will be about 20 hours from Toronto. Looking at one night stay-over on the return trip.

Regular potty breaks, exercise and bonding are the advantages I see plus it would be nice to visit. The concern raised by the breeder, which I completely understand is the risk of parvo at pet-friendly hotels.

I know some people here have experienced this and was just looking for opinions/comments on lodging and the risk associated with this kind of travel. Our last pup was flown in and it was a long and stressful day for her so I figured I would at least explore Plan B

I plan to talk to our vet as well.
