TRAVELODGE HOTEL, EL PASO, TX
1 April, 2004. We got a very nice room on the 7th floor for $45.99 (around $54 after an ouitrageous amount of taxes). There was coffee in the room, an ironing board, a hair dryer, a safe and very comfortable beds Oddly enough, the water in the our room (# 712) was too hot. It took several minutes, on full cold, for the showere to be bearable. Even the toilet water was uncomfortably hot. The room included a free 30-minute long distance phone call which I used to call my mom. It turns out that my brother went to Las Vegas, NV to get married less than a month after I left. Overall, we were pretty happy there. We also got a free shuttle to the walking bridge that leads in to Juarez, Mexico. 35 cents to cross the bridge. And the hotel will pick you up until Midnight. We took advantage of that too.
