    The hotel itself was nice. It's a huge resort hotel on Jantzen Island, which is right on the border of Oregon and Washington State.

    However, we had major issues checking in. I had booked our room via the Hotel Tonight app about two days prior to our visit. I've used Hotel Tonight successfully for our entire trip thus far. The girl working the desk couldn't find our reservation, at all, then one of the other employees tried to find our reservation, but he got distracted, and wandered off, then we asked a third employee what was going on, and he just claimed we had no reservation.

    We waited for about an hour while they tried to fix our reservation.

    Then I called the app's 24/7 support line, an spoke to an employee there,and she called the hotel for us, and spoke to a manager and suddenly there was room for us, although we got no apologies or anything for the fact it took the hotel about 1.5 hours to help us, and it was their mistake.

    Very unhelpful front desk staff. They DO NOT go the extra mile to help their guests, at all.

    Our room was nice, at least. It had two big beds, a gigantic bathroom with a shower, toilet, and fancy shampoo and body wash and conditioner. The room also had a fridge, and the WiFi at the hotel was decent enough.

    We didn't get to enjoy any of the amenities of the hotel because it took the hotel so long to fix our reservation, so I have no comment on those, except the pool was huge and looked really nice, but we didn't have a chance to use it.

    Jantzen Island is also a nice place. There's a Starbucks, various restaurants from fast food places to McDonald's to places like Panera, to sit down restaurants like BJs.

    This is a very short entry.

    The third day in Klamath Falls, I woke up feeling sick. It was obviously a cold, nothing serious, just cold symptoms like a very congested nose, sneezing, sore throat, bad headache, and ear pain.

    We packed our tent up, which took far shorter than when we initially set it up, but nevertheless, just …

    ... the place was very, very
    crowded. There were lots of crafts, art, food, fresh cut flowers, fruits and
    vegetables. We got what we wanted, walked around a little then left. It was our
    first or second day of temperatures in the 90’s but no humidity. The locals
    kept talking about how hot it was being in the 90’s but we were comfortable
    with no or low humidity!

    Late afternoon we rode around by the Columbia River one last
    time. ...

    ... there is a simple and common politeness and respect for others, and it seems to work, so far so good. Again, to save the pennies we booked a cheap room in a hostel downtown so that we had somewhere to crash for the night and would still be in the heart of the city so we could explore on foot. The next day we have until 7pm until our flight to Vancouver, so as we were only here once, we both wanted to see Hong Kong on foot, and not just from the back of a taxi looking out the window. ...

    ... they dropped me off at Washington Park, across the road, and I took a very peaceful and relaxing walk. Heading down through the park and finally into the Downtown area again, I made my way back to my accommodation on the No #4 bus, this time with a very helpful driver!

    It was a wonderful day...great time in the book store, lovely afternoon with two lovely and hospitable fellas and a wonderful walk through the park.

    Oh, and the sun came out for a few ...
