Nice cheap, comfortable, whistle stop at $60 for a double room.
Easy access wifi, but the breakfast left a lot to be desired. Supposed to be continental, but all you got was tea, coffee, orange juice and a choice of little donut things. Not even cereal and toast.
Not continental by international standards. Thus the two star rating.
Otherwise quite good, although the staff were not very friendly upon checking in. The guy behind the counter in the morning was a little more friendly, but not much.
They have a long way to go in the field of customer relations.

... wind compared to the previous days. The RV is still running strong, though it needs a really good scrubbing at this point. A few minor things need tightening and sealing - but that's how it works when your running a big box down a bumpy road.
We decided to stay just outside Chicago at an RV park in Joliet, IL. Its huge! It has an olympic size swimming pool, large pond - almost ...
... to a larger car. Concerning for me in terms of petrol costs, as I'd budgeted for a 4 cylinder manual, but c'est la vie. Worse, was that I could not drive as I didn't have a license any longer to show the rental company. I consequently missed driving in the only three states in the eight states we drive through that I have not already driven. On my Road Trip. Thanks a lot Filthy Bag Thief, may your balls turn into lobsters and snap your penis off if you're a man. If you're ...
... little shopping for small things, like toiletries and whatnot, and stock up on summer clothes.
I arrive in Australia on Valentine's Day. Cute right? :) One week until my journey of epic proportions begins! I'll do my best to update as often as can. Stay tuned!!
