traveling solo again. leaving phoenix at 6am gets me to goldfield by 2pm, when the motel opens. i had no reservation & had my choice of rooms, they accept plastic. they offer smoking & non-smoking rooms, the rooms are a little shabby but clean. the tv works fine, now that i know how to operate the remote, many channels. my only beef is that there are no phones in the rooms & my cheap GO phone has no signal out there. i went to the mini-mart on the main street to use their pay phone but the phone had been removed. the owners of the mini mart said that the phone company stated that it did not get enough use so it was removed & will not be back. the bartender at the santa fe saloon was kind enough to let me use her phone, (i had a calling card). i was too tired for a sit down meal so i bought some junk food at the mini-mart to eat in the room. i believe there is still a cafe on the main street, unsure if the northern hotel/restaurant is still in operation, last time i ate there it was upscale, delicious but a little pricey. had a couple cocktails at the sante fe saloon, the drink prices are cheap & the locals are friendly. i always feel safe. the motel is on the edge of town, very quiet at night.
