Zipping around town in the dark was less than ideal, we spotted another place and went in, the right price, Wifi, off street parking so that ticked all the boxes.

Turned out to be quite nice and quite, hot shower etc so very nice, when traveling the simple things like flush toilet, hot shower, Wifi and a sheeted bed are luxury items, throw in a can of Root Beer and there is no worries in the world.
Hi Ellen and Andi, enjoyed your update and hope Ellen's foot feels better soon.
How did you stumble upon this Hotel, we had to be shown to it by a local as there were no signs.
I stayed in that same room last Feb.
Currently hosting a couple of Aussie lads who just arrived Calif and bought a couple of used KLR's we are now outfitting for thier ride to South America in a couple of weeks after they Yosemite and the North Calif coast redwoods.
