Last night we stopped in Lexington, Virginia, at a random Hampton Inn and found ourselves at the nicest Hampton Inn in all the world:
It's a part of the adventure, I suppose, not planning where you're going to stop on these trips. The rooms were normal, but very clean and nice, hotel chain rooms, but there were nice touches here and there. I liked this clock:
And the reception and sitting rooms were in a lovely old mansion. There were fire places and comfortable sofas. This is the nicer bit of the building (the cabin sat in the back parking lot with a little plaque about its history):
Tonight, we are in a nice Hilton Garden Inn in Duluth, Georgia, but it doesn't quite live up to the Hampton Inn (although the room does smell like blueberry muffin, a nice touch).
