Default Long car ride with puppy?

Any suggestions for travelling a long distance with a puppy?

Since we (I) sometimes make bad choices, we (I) decided to go with a breeder 12 hours away and we'll be driving down to get the puppy.

what are good puppy entertainment toys? Should I bring a few bully sticks? Kongs? Other toys that you can hide food in?

What about potty breaks? I'm concerned about taking a little puppy that has only had his first vaccines into the 'pet area' at most rest stops.

Water? Out all the time or just offered occasionally? I think the plan is to bring a crate, but kind of rotate the puppy between crate & lap.

Pet friendly hotel chains? Since it's 12 hours straight driving, I imagine adding a puppy to that will increase the time quite a bit so I think we'll have to stop part way back. Any good dog friendly chains? Once again, kind of concerned about taking a puppy somewhere where I'm not sure who has been there.
