Hotel/motel chain offering RV electric hookup seem illogical !

I would be more interested in places where I could spend a night "dry" camping, like most Walmart and most Cracker Barrel restaurants. Verbal permission should always be obtained.

Beside larger truck stops, are there any other establishments that allow overnight parking ?

We like to travel US highways rather than interstates. As I plan a trip, I use RV Trip Wizard, Allstays and RV Parky to identify potential stops.

Seems like almost every state, particularly west of the Mississippi has a handful of non-chain small motels with some RV spots. Usually in out of the way places, like the one in Marathon, TX mentioned above. It is the only place to stop between Alpine and Sanderson on US-90.

If you are going to Big Bend NP, it is the only place to stop and be ready to enter the park early in the day from the north.

I haven't stayed at these, but they looked good while driving by:

Turner Inn and RV Park, US-60, Mountainair, NM
Red Roof Inn and RV Park, US-287, Childress, TX
Glenn and Mrya's Lodge and RV Park, US-82, Seymour, TX
Fort Davis Motor Inn, TX-17, Fort Davis, TX

We have stayed at Historic Prude Ranch just west of Fort Davis, TX - this is a 'dude' ranch type place, but mainly guest cabins. They have a couple dozen RV pedestals in a field. Full hook ups. A few of which are 50 amp.

Frankly I don't recommend it. The pedestals are 13 feet apart, not prep for the RV parking, and poor connections for sewer. I had to think what it would smell like in the summer with several risk in the RV area. But it was $22.50 per night, no taxes for 2 nights with Passport America. Were there in Sept 2020. As a place for a non-RV reunion or gathering - I would recommend it. RV - no.

Did a search and found this: https://www.allstays.com/hotel-maps/truck-hotels.htm and this http://www.rvandtravelers.com/listcatbusinesses.php?id=73

Can't vouch for their accuracy but it might be a place to start.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

I'm sure there are a few around the country, but, generally, why would a major hotel chain offer you an electric hookup for X dollars per night when they can charge you XXX or XXXX dollars for a room .

^This. If they had extra real estate for RV's, they would add rooms instead.
I've stayed in hotels from Bellingham Washington to Buffalo NY, to Laredo Tx. Never noticed any RV hook ups.

Well I was aware of places in northeast that cater to skiers with RVs, since campgrounds aren’t typically open, and just was curious if they might offer similar options -instead of stopping at noisy truck stops or parking lots (@ Walmart’s or Cracker Barrel) which also tend to be noisy with truck traffic. We also used to stop at rest areas, but some aren’t allowing RVs to stop and park very long. Plus, we prefer to use electric heater or blankets over propane when temps dip and necessitates, which isn’t available at parking lots or truck stops. [emoticon].

Again, because it’s something I’ was aware of in the northeast by ski areas and didn’t know if it was similar in the northern southern states or sunbelt as well. [emoticon]

We've crashed overnight at some of the casinos in Mesquite, NV on our way coming or going. Dry camping only. It's not really free if you're ethical enough to go inside and blow a few bucks in their low-quality restaurants or play the slots or tables. It's convenient though, and you don't need a reservation.
