Horwood House Hotel

A quick glance at the online marketing for the Horwood House Hotel might lead one to believe that it is a country manor house converted into a small hotel. However, beyond the 1911 home that houses the lobby is a huge sprawling event hotel similar to those I've encountered around the world. The price was reasonable. The restaurant served up good food. The room was comfortable. And the Internet was sufficiently fast to work remotely from my room. This was everything I needed for a stop on a working roadtrip.

Tonight's accommodations are on a train. It has been a long day in the sun. Time to sleep -- if the birds quiet down.

Rooftop Caravan Park


I look outside our hotel window and see what appears to be a rooftop caravan park. It turns out that this is Notel, a non-hotel upscale hipster hotel made up of a handful of refitted retro Airstream camping trailers. This is just the kind of oddball lodging I'd give a try -- if they weren't over twice the price of other nearby accommodations.

The forecast for 2019 is looking good

I may not be able to sleep with this disorder in my motel room.

Plug me in. Turn me on.

I often find myself moving furniture in search of power outlets in hotel room. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm staying at a luxury resort or a cheap roadside motel -- power outlets are often hard to find.

I'm thrilled to find no lack of power in this place.

Don't utilize the bushes?

Don't shoot your eye out.


Using a good security tool doesn't automagically make your systems secure. You still have to think.
