Here’s the next installment of “California Road Trip.” I hope you all are not getting bored. We stayed at our last Ho Jo’s in Reseda. What I mean by that is I hope I never have to stay at another one again. The above picture is what it looked like on the outside. Promising isn’t it. But looks can be deceiving. Our room was a suite because they overbooked us and so they “bumped us up.” This meant the room had a little kitchen, living room and bedroom. The free WiFi worked fine – ah an improvement. The area in which the hotel was located was fine – no rowdy people outside your room. Let’s take a look around the room shall we?
Pictured below is the wallpaper above the front door. The scotch tape you see was trying to hold down the peeling wallpaper and apparently not doing a very good job.
Pictured below is the wallpaper in the bathroom. I guess someone measured wrong.
Now you know someplace is old when one of these things is bolted to the desk. I believe it’s where they use to keep the remote so that no one stole it, but I could be wrong. Any guesses on why this thing is bolted to a desk or what it is?
I know it sounds like I’m picking on Howard Johnson’s . . . okay I’m picking on them. But they have given me such good material to write about this trip. So I salute you Ho Jo’s. I choose to never stay in one of you again, but who knows, maybe one day . . . who am I kidding.
We had such a good time visiting out son. We love him so and we are very proud of him. He’s pursuing his dreams and working hard. The trip back was just as much fun and when we stopped in Stockton this time, we stayed at Residence Inn. This was a much nicer place and in a better part of town. The room was absolutely lovely. Check out these pictures below.
I have only one more post about this trip . . . next up – Bug Guts and Sgns.
