It was an older looking hotel, room, even parking lot but the experience was pretty good. Internet was fine, tv was ok. The room amenities weren't great but it was pleasantly nostalgic.

In the unlikely event that you find yourself in need of a place to stay in this neck of the woods, you won't be spoilt for choice. And you'll search in vain for 5-star luxury or chic boutique establishments. So we should be grateful for the mere existence of the California Motel. It certainly isn't fancy. In fact it's pretty...
