On our little road trip, our next stop was the Mission Inn area of Riverside. We like to walk the area and then hit some Route 66 locations. We read the T Lodge had be renovated and was a great price. It is very nice. But it needs some fine tuning. There are only canned lights in the ceiling. If we wanted to turn a light on at night we had to light up the whole room (and not very well for reading). They could use sconces or table lights by the beds or on the desk. Also, there is no outlet near the sink. The closest one is way over the microwave and fridge...which is where the dinky coffee maker was. There is no coffee in the lobby so we tried to make our own. The pot is over 5 feet up so I couldn't see to add water or put the coffee pouch in. Simple, we moved it over to the desk area. Nice clean beds, but we could hear the guy in the next room talking real loud on his phone. Doesn't he know you don't have to yell into your phone anymore!
Nice quick trip to the Mission Inn at a great price!
