It seems the lodge/hotel at the rally site is all booked up. Can anyone suggest a hotel or two near-ish the rally site? The pre-requisite is to have a pub/restaurant in close walking distance to the hotel, and possibly something within a reasonable budget (Motel 8, Marriott, or some other mid-grad joint, no Foo-Foo required here). I saw the link that was provided in the rally 'poster' with hotel listings, but it would be nice to get some first hand recommendations that others are going to stay at as well.
My Dad is riding out all the way from Iowa so we can go to a rally together. He started riding again about 5 years ago after retirement and we had an opportunity to go to one rally together in the midwest. Being adults it's nice to have a parent/friend to ride with all in the same person. Look for us and say hello- he's on an ex-police RT and I'll be on a romping stomping Ninja 250!
