    Actually, its hotter. Touche!

    You're still stuck on the Dolomites and missing the connection....and that connection is (drum roll)...they have great roads (and I won't say better, in fear of hurting fragile feelings) that they could just as easily capitalize on them by asking rediculous room rates, but they don't, and that is on top of higher operating costs.

    So some place in nowhere Catskills is asking how much for a room? Get the point?

    Strange that those same people willing to pay $250 for a room will whine about the price of a BMW oil filter.
    As far as I know, $250 isn't the discounted rate. The room I'm staying in wasn't $250 a night. Call back and ask for the discounted rate, or there is a campground nearby.

    I don't whine about the oil filters, but I sure wish having the circlip installed in the transmission of my GSPD was going to be cheaper.

    This thread is out of control.

    All I wanted to know was there a cheaper place to stay. I've never been to this hotel so I can't say if the room is or isn't worth $250 a night, (the price may even have been miss quoted,it sounded like the person I talked to was filling in) it's just more then I wanted to pay. I'll just wait till Monday until the contact person is back from vacation.

    I would call these some pretty nice discounts, especially considering what some people paid for a far lesser room just recently in a state far to the west of the Catskills. =8^( Not only are the rates discounted for the first night, but you get an additional discount if you stay a second night! Get a couple of friends together and you can have a great place to stay for just about what a night at the KOA would cost you.

    Discounted rates

    My negotiating skills are far better than my computer skills. Stop laughing Feeler!

    Let me clear up the above posting since I didn't seem to get the spacing to work.


    Room Type Rack Rate BMW Group Rate
    Studio $250/night $150/1st nt; $135/2nd nt


    The room type is a "studio". The rack rate is $250/night. The BMW Group rate is $150 for the first night and $135 for the second night's reservation. Same for the rest of the above post.

    Stop laughing Nye!

    Thanks for helping put this together and for clearing up the rates question.

    I am looking forward to it as it's the only rally I will get to this year and it's almost in my own backyard.

    June was just a test run. But wait until October - at the cottage on the lake.

    Snoone can lead you in since he locked in the location on his ZUMO. Indoor sleeping, DirectTV, fishing, swimming and chilling out!

    And only pay $50 a night with a full breakfast.

    After all, I only want a room for the night; I don't want to buy the place.

    Scratch that, just found out an Oktoberfest is being held at the resort at the same time! This will definitely be a blast!
