Hotel Stop

Hotel Stop


Be patient as you sign

For your room-card key

And know you will find

Your room nice and neat


Let not the many steps

Make you sweat a bit

But take the elevator there

On your baggage trip


Marvel at the king-size bed

And the great TV

And close your eyes for a bit

At another day complete


See the stars from your balcony

And the swimming pool below

Next to the universal gym

Where the pretty people go


See the Bible in the drawer

And smile for a little bit

Knowing He watches over all

Then read a verse and quit


Rise with the curtains open

With a view of clear blue sky

And be thankful for your rest

On a lonely night


Read the paper as you dine

With waffles there and coffee

Then leave and pack your things

And try to check out promptly

    I have done that many times, in my final job before retiring I had to go all over the country (UK) sorting out peoples computer problems. There are some good hotels out there, and some not so good.

      Yes, there really are some hotels better than others. On a recent trip to see my son, my wife and i stayed at AirB&Bs. They're similar to traditional B&Bs but bigger with a bit more privacy and a little cheaper. I would recommend them over most hotels.

        I think I've stayed in that hotel, read that bible and swam in that pool - small world. Well written. JD
