The Car Saga Continues

– Lets be honest, it’s a never-ending saga when you are a Stein and own an automobile.  This is a fact K is still trying to wrap her mind around because she’s more into novellas.  So, what’s the most recent development?  Time to set the scene! –

Upgrades To Hotel Stein

Hotel Stein has undergone some major upgrades since October. On top of providing our guests with the latest in aquatic beds, we’re introducing themed rooms, a la the infamous Settle Inn. Now, you can enjoy staying in the “Television Room,” complete with posters and pictures of TV shows you should really already know about. (If you haven’t seen them, maybe you shouldn’t inquire about staying.) On top of the great view of the trees in the front yard, you can get 24 over-the-air channels, a shared bathroom, and a complimentary “bars and tone” wake up call. Make your reservation today!
