This Holiday Inn Express in Barstow is almost certainly another old Holiday Inn conversion, and it shows. I think it's about the size of the walk-in closet at the Marriott back in Vegas. Lisa says it reminds her of the Japanese hotel rooms in which we stayed last year, except Japanese rooms have bathtubs, which is more than we can say for this room, which has only a shower stall. On the brighter side, there's a major railroad switch yard just out back of the hotel; however, the sounds do not actually make it into our room unless we open the windows, which is not a good idea as it's pretty warm here even at 1 AM.
Westercon was fun, our shows went very well, and I'll write more later after I get home, probably in back-dated entries that I'll mention when I post them. I'd write more now, but I'm beat.
