The Saharan Motor Hotel, Hollywood, California

Just a quick review of the place we stayed at in Hollywood…

We chose this place because unfortunately the motel 6 we stayed at last time was fully booked by the time we got round to organising ourselves. It was a 10 minute walk to Hollywood Boulevard and the start of the stars in the pavement. Another 5 minutes to Mann’s Chinese theatre. It was relatively cheap and had free parking. There was a small breakfast included with fresh fruit juice, tea, coffee, cereal, toast and waffles; and free wifi which was at a reasonable speed.

hollywoodhotelThe first impression of the room was good, but was let down by the cleanliness in the bathroom. There was a cluster of hairs left on the floor and the doorframe was filthy. Loo and sink spotless, but it was like the cleaner hadn’t been told to clean the doorframe so she didn’t. The grout had come out of the floor tiles and they were all cracked and wobbly. Also my feet were black from walking on the carpet – it needs a good wash.

Otherwise, a good basic motel in a quiet road close to central Hollywood with a very friendly person at reception. Also a handy supermarket just across the road.

Overseas,

Visiting the Jack o’lantern Blaze & wearing my new purple coat
October 30, 2018
We couldn’t be in America without visiting a Halloween event, could we? Friends recommended the Jack o’lantern Blaze at Croton-on-Hudson in New York, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. This event sells out weeks beforehand, but I think I happened to be online when a new batch was released for an 8:30pm time slot on Tuesday. So I bought the tickets in a bit of a panic, but didn’t really know what it was I was buying them for!…
3 Days in Oxford – Day 2. The story of the photographs
October 12, 2016
If you haven’t yet seen Day 1, then you might like to follow this link and come back here later. The morning of my second day in Oxford was mainly spent walking from the Four Pillars Hotel in Sandford-on-Thames along the Thames path into Oxford. I’ve already written a detailed blog with photos about the journey in this post, so I’ll begin here where I left off, entering the city by Christchurch College. I sort-of meandered my way through cobbled streets and past various ancient University buildings until I came out at a place I remembered….
Walking round Glastonbury Festival site
A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs
April 12, 2017
Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
