Sleeping on a train

Pelican Waters Holiday Park

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


Beachcomber Motel

Lorne Coachman Inn

Now I lay me down to sleep

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

Princess testing in the parking lot?


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.

I can't sleep with this disorder in my room

Arrived. Out of the Van.

House of Mouse

The Mouse's girl is flirting with me.

The Disneyland Hotel

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.

Friends don't let friends decorate hotels while high. This hotel's decorator needs friends.

Dear Occupants

Baby Quail Inn

This hotel should put price tags on everything in the room. I'm interested in the bathroom doorknob and the painting on the wall. Oh, and how much will I be charged if I take this sign?

Wigwam Village #7

Wigwam Village #7 on the border of Rialto and San Bernadino, California, is one of seven concrete tipi motels built between 1933 and 1950.

Only three of the seven still exist today. The tipi-shaped design (incorrectly labeled called a wigwam) was the brainchild of Frank A. Redford who created the first Wigwam Village around his Indian artifact museum and shop in Horse Cave, Kentucky. Wigwam Village #7 was built along Route 66 by Redford in 1947 through 1949. Unlike the other Wigwam Villages, this one has two rows of tipis.

I've not yet stayed at this Wigwam Village, but passed by on my way home from southern California.
