Spending three nights straight in the Best Western is basically a dream-come-true to me, probably it’s one of the best hotels I have experienced so far. Route 66 journey was the best as well as the Harley Davidson Bikes Museum. The diversity of people on our bus was just astonishing; great tour team.
