Im gonna be traveling for 2-4 weeks living out of a motel with no gym. What can I do to lose as little muscle as possible? My diet probably won't be the best either.
You won't lose any muscle in 2-4 weeks. Just take the time to rest up. If you really want to do something you can do some bodyweight stuff like pushups, pullups, situps or find a local gym and see if they'll give you a deal for a few weeks.

No chance of finding a local gym? Most gyms do a one month membership.

Maybe you can try an imaginary treadmill. Pretend that you have a treadmill in your hotel room and start jogging. The idea might be insane but i guess this is better than totally doing nothing at all.
While you are staying in the hotel you can do body weight exercises such as push-up's (or find a local gym and buy a day pass to do some light full body workouts 1-2 times per week).
Do you know any links to any bodyweight workouts? And possibly any good full body workouts with weights if I do happen to find a gym?
Was in a similar situation a few months ago. Here's what I did:
I took the end-table in the hotel room, flipped it upside-down and pilled some books on it. I then used that to bench press (it was awkward, but it worked). I unplugged the standing lamp and used that to overheadpress and curl. It was that heavy, but I got in a ton of reps. I also used the desk (flipped at 90 degrees), to do some lowerback lifts. Yes, it is ghetto, but if your hotelroom has the right stuff, you can get in a quasi-decent lift.
My wife was with me for some of the trip, and got a kick out of it. And nothing broke
