    Check out page 137 of the January issue of the ON. There's a complete list of area hotels with contact info and rates.

    Motels websites say FULL but call them because MOA has block of rooms reserved for us, riders. Lots of rooms empty, but will go soon.

    Don't limit yourself;

    Many times folks only look at the larger chain hotels/motels? Dozens of Mom/Pop Motels exist too and finding them is the key. BBs too. Rooms are usually only limited buy your search. Although I camp and dozens of years at these rallies now, I have rarely if ever heard a story of no rooms found in an area as large as Salem... Yes, the big ones fill quick, but have hope, you'll be fine with a likely great room not so far from rally. Randy

    Like Randy said, Mom n Pops (especially if they have no Web presence) can easily be found. And even if they're 20 miles away from the rally site, it's an awesome commute!
