The Holiday Inn Express in Modesto. Not the old Holiday Inn which was by the train track but the new one that is on the other side of the freeway. I can also re-assure you that the Days Inn in Rocklin is worth skipping. There is just something wrong with picking up your bath towel and finding a long black hair.
The Holiday Inn is new and has wonderfully strong shower heads. The staff is great especially when people check in late at night. They even offered to provide me with dinner – I had just come from dinner with JenHarper so wasn’t too interested. But I did help myself to the hot chocolate chip cookies.
