    We have stayed in the hotel and the motel. I prefer the motel. You have your own door and get to avoid elevators. Newly redone but in a 60's theme. Very clean. Plenty of space. Refrigerator and microwave. Hairdryer. Nice shampoo and conditioner plus soap. Table for work or eating at. Nice flat screen tv. Air conditioning works excellent. Extra pillow and blanket available already in the room. Will stay again. Love this place. Attached restaurants are excellent and I recommend those as well. Parking included. Great neighborhood. Worth a stay!

    Stay in the motel for a charming experience. You have your own door to the outside and avoid elevators. Redone recently in 60's motif. Refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, table for work, nice flat screen, coffee pot. AC works great. Extra pillow and blanket in the room. Decent size closet and huge chest of drawers. Definitely worth a stay. We will always return.

We are now going over the border, we were starting to get a bit worried, America didn't want us to stay but they wouldn't let us leave. All is good, we meet the family on the 7th and 8th, we are looking forward to seeing them.

    ... deck. However, even though the beef and shrimp were great, what really stood out was the desert of Monster Bar - a delicious cookie-slash-brownie topped with Oreos and M&Ms, and perhaps the most calorific thing in existence. Obviously it was to die for. I feel like Laura cottoned on to something with this food malarkey - I could definitely spend 7 weeks investigating American cuisine. Earlier that day I'd indulged in a culturally inquisitive big mac, and ...
