I'm not too keen on regular Joe-blow type hotels. But, I do love, love, love quirky little motels. Like La Siesta Motel down in Tucson. The cutest rooms all tricked out in different styles. Zen, Country, etc...
When I showed up on X-mas night, they had my lights on, the heater blasting and Thank God, a nice glass of red wine on the wait for me. Now, who does that? Free coffee in the AM - all strong and delicious - they recycle, the sweetheart who runs the place hires from the Tucson deaf community...I mean, it's like giving back in a whole new way.
It's def. more expensive than the other motels that flank it, but none of them are even near as adorable, homey or friendly. I could plop down here and write a novel. No need to go anywhere ever again...except out to the pool to watch the shooting stars at night.
My fave room is the Zen room. I mean, what motel rocks it like that?
