I am flying from the UK, via AMS, into Seattle early March, arriving lunchtime. Two CA friends of mine are driving N from Sacramento that day, and we are heading to Revelstoke, BC, for a ski holiday. Their 'instructions' to me are to find accommodation, as close as possible, to I5, where they will pick me up early the following morning.
Bearing in mind I shall have a large case containing my ski clothes, boots etc, I need to use public transport to get to my overnight stop, or a not too expensive cab. Unfortunately, after a long flight and an 8 hour time difference, sightseeing in Seattle will be out of the question. Any suggestions please on my best course of action, or advice as to where to stay near I5 so as not to inconvenience my friends who have a long drive both days. My budget is fairly tight, but not sleeping on a bench tight! Thanks.
