    Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

    We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

    We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

    The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

    The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

    The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

    There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

    Today we are not very well. Minna says it is last night's Wagyu beef that we are not used to that is clogging up my arteries and leaving me very sluggish. I could barely get to breakfast and ate hardly anything.
    Last night Minna was exhausted and had heartburn but feels good now because she threw up at 3am.

    We got the call early ...

I said, as politely as I could "so, you're telling me that a silly shoplifting conviction from when I was 17 is going to keep me from going to Brazil today?"

    Remember, I love you, Mom.

    After that, it was all a stumbling slide towards the bed in my room. I charged all chargeable appliances, ordered myself room service, ate in bed, and passed out with pizza sauce in my hair (I'm still not sure how it got there).

    Just let that image soak in for a moment. It's beautiful, yeah?

    That's it for tonight. Love you!
