We're just north of Chicago!

After almost five hours on the motorcycle we've made it to a Best
Western hotel. I have to admit that I haven't stayed in an
"economical hotel" in years. We paid $67 for the room. They upgraded
us to this (see photo). We get a free continental breakfast, use of
the gym (one treadmill, one weight machine, and a stair stepper sort
of thing... Not nocking it because I'm going to use the gym in the
morning). We also get free Internet..... It only works when the air
conditioner is off. The walls are paper thin and we can hear the
neighbours. They almost hit Andrew's motorcycle parking in the space
next to ours. Not once, but several times (parking is in a back
alley.... Gulp!) I think that we should turn on the jacuzzi at two in
the morning as a payback! Lol. Oh, I almost forgot.... We are in an
airplane zone. Several planes have thundered by!!! We're having a riot!

I gotta run because it's getting hot and I need to turn the air back

Sounds like you might want to pass on that free continental breakfast

Best westerns are always soooo interesting. Often you can make your own fun no

I remember (when I was single) pulling into any motel that said $29 or below and not caring what condition the room was in as long as there wasn't a dead body in the room.

I have learned my lesson... you do get what you pay for! I remember years ago sleeping on top of the covers fully dressed at some dump. I think that there was a dead body under the bed!!!! Yipes!

I am certain that I will try it again... like to live on the wild side! lol
