We started off our trip today in Redwoodcity Ca and decided to drive up the norhtern coast until we arrive in Victoria B.C. . Our first stop was three and a half hours up north to a small costal city named Fortt Bragg. We were able to book a room at the Holiday Inn express. The Hotel could not be any more perfect. It's not anything to shout about, but it's certainly far from anything to complain about. It has an indoor pool (that faces a main street...so stay clothed). The hotel also offers a free contential Breeakfast that I am sure is descent. I travel extensisvely and can honestly say that I have yet to stay in a Bad Holiday Inn express. Our room in pirticular has a cool little fire place and huge bathroom, though it looks a little like something in an upscale hospital it's nevetheless nice and clean. Our room also has a cool and spacious balcany with a descent view of lots of greener and off to the right all you see is ocean. A thumbs up for this hotel no complaints.
