2016: Summer Sweat: Salinas, Medford, Kelso, Kelso - HOME

First stop: Salinas, California - Motel 6 ($96 US)

Drove down the 1 to the 101 again. There was a lot of fog so we didn't get to see the ocean as much as we would have liked. We should have just taken the 5 out - we would have gotten farther and we would have missed Salinas. 
Review: Expensive for a Motel 6 ($96 US)
Good pool - warm
renovated rooms
Close by: McDonald's, In and Out Burger
- We will not stay here again.

Second stop: Medford, Oregon - Motel 6 ($73 US)

Review: Good pool - but off a lot of people hanging out by the pool drinking - living at the hotel? Weed smells.
Close by: Dairy Queen
- We will not stay here again.

Third/Forth stop:  Kelso, Washington - Motel 6 ($73 US)

Skate park, park, water park, pool.
We don't like the pet policy.
I can see your smile in the arm of that hoodie big boy :-)


Colourful rigs.
Ice cream date with mommy.

There is a play place at this McDonalds - remember for next time.
