Lodging confirmation

need confirmation on who is interested in staying the night in Helen so i can decide if i should try to arrange a hosting hotel for us. not sure how good i can do, but am willing to try. it would be your basic Days Inn or something. shooting for $30-$50 a night.

although i only live 55 miles from there, i am putting in a vote for a room because i would like to be able to hangout there late as a club and not have to drive home.

I'm in for the hotel. I'm 99.99999% sure that I can go but I still don't know how I'm going to get there. I will either rent a car because I don't trust my daily driver or I will buy a used sport bike and haul some a$$ up 75 to Georgia. I can make it in 5 hours.

If it wouldn't be tooo much trouble, would you kindly put me down for a room. I've slept in my vw before, but since I have the money now I'd like a room.

Thanks,
Mike

i won't be reserving rooms. i am just going to see if i can get us a block rate. once i do, i will let everyone know the price and you will need to make your own reservation. i will probably hunt a place down this weekend.

Any luck with the hotel situation yet...


I might have to bail because of some things that may come up. I don't know but I'm 50% sure I'm still going...

I'll need a place to sleep too on Friday night, and something by the show would be nice.

I live on the south side of town and don't know much about that area. Zen might know more about the area.
Try the show website for some info.

Any news about the beds? I was just wondering since it's getting kinda close. And it will be here before you know it.

sorry, i have been out of town. i would recommend the same as Dave for Friday night. take advantage of the rate John negociated and that will be close to the show. as for saturday, i have not been able to do any better on rates thus far. here is what i have...$79 for the night or $67.50 if you are a AAA member. before i confirm anything with the hotel, is anyone going to be in for that? i was hoping to do better, but anything in Helen tends to be pretty steep. the only other alternative i can think of is maybe seeing if the HoD hotel being used Friday will extend the offer for Saturday.

one other thought is to get a hotel in cleveland which is about 5 miles from Helen and the rates drop to around $50-$60. too far to stumble back from the German bars though.

thoughts?
