Sometimes we like to treat ourselves to the finer things in life. That’s why we spent a few days in early February staying at a Travel Lodge. We didn’t pick just any Travel Lodge, we stayed at the Studio Way Travel Lodge in Borehamwood. That’s right, Studio Way…the place where you can see all the top stars. The Tesco we shopped in just down the street was next to the Elstree Studios George Lucas Stage. I bet George Lucas has stayed in the very same Travel Lodge we stayed in. Heck, he might’ve even stayed in the same room.
The Studio Way Travel Lodge is the ideal hangout for A-list celebrities. It features a lovely view out back of beer bottles strewn across the grass. My favorite feature was the stray pubic hairs in the bathtub when we checked in. Because they could’ve been the pubic hairs of an A-list celebrity like Danny DeVito or Fran Drescher, I kept them. They’re in a plastic baggy in my purse right now. Once I figure out which star they belong to I’m sure I can get good money for them on eBay.
I knew our room was significant the first day because housekeeping didn’t shut our door completely after cleaning it. They probably did that to give other guests in the hotel the opportunity to look around our room and see the bed that George Lucas, Danny DeVito and possible Fran Drescher had slept in…separately I hope.
As much as I loved the Borehamwood Studio Way Travel Lodge, I was happy to leave. Now we have our own place in the country. Don’t worry though. We can go to Borehamwood any time we have a hankering to see some movie stars.
