I needed to crash before I crashed. I pulled off the highway at 11 pm and began looking for a place to lay my head. The big hotel right off the freeway wanted 119 for a room. This place was 3 miles away and quoted me $50. So at 11 pm I went for it. The office smelled of curry... More

I needed a room for the night, since my plans to make the drive back to Long Beach from Tehachapi had changed suddenly due to my fatigue from the day's activities. I wasn't expecting a 5 star hotel room, just something cozy for the night. That the room was without AC was a disappointment, but it was disclosed in advance... More
