Instead of a view from the hotel room, this is the lobby of the hotel we’re staying at off the highway just outside of the Poconos resort area in Pennsylvania. This place has Stephen King written all over it, but more 1408 than The Shining. It’s dated as all get out, but doesn’t really seem run down or dirty.
Our original plan was to drive straight through, but the mix of torrential rain, exhaustion, and the ever-baffling New Jersey highway system but the squash to that so here we here at the very first Howard Johnson’s I’ve ever stayed at. If no one hears from us again, blame the hotel.
