What issues we will encounter moving to a new city without an address? Is it a bad idea to live in a motel for a month?

We're moving in October (DC to LA) and because of schedules, the cost of plane tickets etc, we've decided that it makes the most sense to pack our stuff into pods, have them picked up, then drive ourselves across the country (also, fun!). We figured we'd just live in a motel and have the moving company store our stuff for the couple of weeks to a month it should take us to find an apartment. The storage is pretty cheap, and we want to find somewhere nice. What we'll do with the cats is a question for another day, but that's our basic plan.
It just occurred to me though - what do we do about mail forwarding? (having it sent to work or a friend aren't really options). And are we going to have problems getting a new apartment without an address?
My main question is - Are there other things I haven't thought of that make this a bad idea? what are the implications of being without a real address for a month?
