Hi all, my girlfriend and I have booked into the Wigwam Motel in San Bernardino the night before we plan to reach Santa Monica. Having looked at their website and seen it mentioned on this site we thought it would be a novel place to stay as we would only be passing through Holbrook - however having now watched Henry Cole's 'Riding Route 66' (mentioned in an earlier thread), he refers to San Bernardino as 'LA gangland'! Is this really the case or is it a bit of journalistic license?
We're not planning to hang around there long anyway, but do we need to chain everything down for the duration of our stay?!
