Review of the 2013 Kindle Edition
"At long last I am finally going to California in May. As this a very big ticket, bucket list trip for me (all the way from Ireland) I certainly do not want it to spoiled by making any wrong choices accommodation wise. Mike and his wife Donna have huge experience of all kinds of lodgings along this route and have kindly shared that knowledge in this priceless guide. I am now perfectly happy with my selection and wildly excited about my trip of a lifetime."
