No matter where I stay, I'll probably keep my travel bag on a hard surface to avoid picking up critters if there are any and I always check the seams of mattresses for any stains or signs of bedbugs. Same risks in any hotel IMO.
Wow that is cheap. I don't know if I've seen a hotel under $100 USD in years. Bumfuckville Corning starts at $100.
So cheap! Windsor is a weird spot for prices, housing is like 25% of Toronto yet it has a vibrant manufacturing base, university, and peripherals like retail sectors all doing well. I'd probably be between $109 and $159 near Toronto for a budget stay. Curious to see how it is up kept.

I liked Windsor in the little bit of time I spent there but it was 15 years ago and only a couple of days.

London, Ontario was also nice for a weekend.

Both were basically crap vs Toronto :doe:

In June when we took our little road trip around Illinois we were staying in Hamptons for around $85-ish/night. Might be 'Vid related pricing :doe:

On my way back from there I stopped and ate in London and fell in love with the place. It has a really nice culture. I'd move there if work and family connections could be maintained. I think it's my new favorite but really like Georgetown which is where I've been living since November. Its close enough to Toronto without being in the city and it has a neat downtown area where everything is close but not congested. Still Toronto pricing though :(

:dat:

I’m off work today so gonna head to the gym this morning and then a little later we’re heading up to Long Beach to catch the ferry to Catalina Island. Grabbed a little hotel room out there for the weekend for Michelle’s birthday.
That sounds awesome broseph! How is the pooch doing?
A bit better. New flea meds seem to be helping along with whatever the other medication is to make her skin not itch. Biting and scratching at herself is like 25% of what it was. Granted we still have her in a cone of shame most of the day..

Is she coming with or staying behind with friends/fam?

Is London far enough East to get sun like Toronto? That's the problem with Windsor, it's super gray. Not as cold or gray as Corning but still depressing IMO.

Ahh yeah I haven't looked at hotels in 2020 since the wife won't go anywhere. VRBO/airbnb seem to still end up at $100+/night the few times I've looked during daydreams but that's been at beach locations.

I’ve been to London, Ontario before! It was a fast weekend picking up and car and towing it back to the states.
But I can’t think for myself and need others to do so for me. Someone else tell me how it was?

I'm not sure about the weather sitch, weirdly enough Guelph which is sort of in line with London but further east is in a crazy snow belt, ten min further south and you go from dry roads to a foot of snow on some occasions. It brings up a good point about pricing. Hmm.

Granted, our sub-$100 rates in June were in smaller towns and college towns downstate. That may have played a factor, too.

I stopped in London, ON once. We decided to grab lunch at a bar there on our way to Toronto. The bar itself was 5/7, the food was 3/7. Not sure I'd recommend spending time in London, ON...but I could see potential there if you were somehow stuck there.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Wife and kid got COVID tests. Looks like we will know in 4 DAYS! Bleh.

I'm taking the older one to the cottage, we will play video games and chill.

This really messes up my jobs, hotel is non-refundable so I'm just going to eat that. Jeez.

They are falling behind with kids back to school and testing for every cold they catch (like us), but I really don't know why they don't have a better handle on it here by now, 15min is a dream right now!

Now that I think about it, London, ON was the first time I ever had Little Caesar’s.
