After being apart from my husband due to his job situation, I made the six hour drive from Arizona to Santa Clarita, CA on Labor Day.
It was not only joyous to see him and spend time together for
four days, but the choice of Holiday Inn Express could not have been better.
The staff were welcoming and kind, and one housekeeping staff member was especially sweet as she had a genuine interest in my stay and a couple locations we wanted to visit.
After chatting with that staff member, the decision was made to drive to Ventura for a late afternoon/early evening visit. The drive was just as she had described it....a lovely journey through farms, orchards, and small towns. And then we arrived in Ventura! We had a fantastic meal and appetizers, walked along the beach, wrote our names in the sand....we will never forget the tranquil experience of that time together.
While my husband worked during the day, I thoroughly enjoyed times of swimming, reading and resting at the lovely pool. The grounds were taken care of nicely and the pool was a dream!
Thanks to all who made this brief get away a delight! [Less]
