At Khajuraho, MPTDC Hotel Payal is a very good option. Very open, outside the main city (but not away), ample parking space, clean, good food, etc.....I had very good experience staying there with family during our trip in Oct. 2009. I think it can be booked online too!

NIRMAL OR ABILABAD OR NAGPUR
BHEDAGHAT
SATNA
VARANASI
KOLKOTTA
BUBANESWAR

Madras-Chittoor is fine. Night hawk confirmed that roads are good between Madanapalle to Anantpur...so this one looks good. Suggest for this option

I took this route around 8 months back and the stretch between Addanki->Piduguralla was bad hence during the return journey I skipped Addanki and took Chilakaluripet-> Piduguralla. One of my friend who took the same route couple of months back told that Addanki->Piduguralla stretch is better now with lots of patch work done.

Six months back, I also tried Chennai-Vijaywada-Hyderabad(Its around 740 Kms). 4 lane constuction was going in Vijaywada-Hyderabad stretch and hence lots of disturbance, adding to this the truck traffic is also high.

I have contact details of Hotels at Adilabad (have stayed thrice there in last 1.5 yrs) and Nirmal. Shall dig out and post in a couple of days.

Nagpur to Bhedaghat and then Bhedaghat to Satna, and then satna to Varansi!! These distances will be too short to take a night halt!! I think you might be planning some sight seeing at those places!

Past Lakhnadon (60 kms past Seoni) where 4 lane ends, expect NH7 to have cracks and potholes, sply between Lakhnadon - Jabalpur - Katni sector. Nothing much to worry though. During day time, it'll be manageable. I had little tough time in last March as I was driving these sections during night.

From Bhedaghat to Satna, you need not to go to Rewa, you can leave NH7 at Mehar and take a SH that'll take you directly to Satna. That is a good newly built road. We used it (by mistake!) during our trip to AP in May 2010.

I have once again rescheduled my Leh expedition. The only change I am contemplating is, Chennai is the origin instead of Bangalore, which will remain the destination. I propose to start from my Chennai Royapettah home on 9 September 2011 evening on this route: Chennai>Uthukkottai>Nagalapuram>Puttur>Kadapa>Kurn ool>Hyderabad>Nagpur via GNT Road [NH 5]/NH 205/SH 12/NH 18/NH 7. MapMyIndia shows a distance of 1166.5 km with a journey time of 27 hours. Google Maps show 1165 km and 16 hours & 53 minutes. Preliminary enquiry indicates the road conditions are generally good. Any further information to get me more enlightened regarding this route including fuel pumps, eateries, road conditions, is welcome.
