Anyway, I'm about to pack the computer and check out of the room, and should thus be on the road about an hour earlier than I originally expected. I probably should go for a walk, but it's already getting pretty warm, and I'm itching to get the trip over with.
To recap, the things in favor of this HIX were: location (very convenient to freeway and services); hot tub (Yreka doesn't have one); and price (lower than any HI hotel between Redding and Grants Pass). Against that we can set: no refrigerator; wired internet not working; breakfast bar unable to cope with peak demand. I guess it's about a wash overall.
