    Hotels and lodging

    Now that the dates are set let's get moving.

    First order of business, where to stay. I will need input from the local guys and people who have attended before.

    Recommendations?

    There are two major highways running through the area. IIRC, it's the ones near 55 that are nicer. The ones near 80 tended to be sketchier. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    anything on riverboat drive is good. the area with the Holiday Inn and Red Roof are not bad during the day, but if you like to see hookers and drug deals go down in the evening then that is the spot for you.
    Heros restaruant is near the riverboat drive hotel. Fairfield / Hampton / anything over there is fine.

    I have stayed at both the Hampton Inn I-55 and the Motel 6 I-55. They are right next to each other and right next to a mall with a Tilted Kilts. They're also both what you would expect from their brand. The Hampton Inn costs more, but includes a pool and hot tub and breakfast with waffles. The Motel 6 is a Motel 6, but it is priced like a Motel 6. I know there is also a Holiday Inn Express in that area and I think there are a couple others. I haven't stayed at any of them, though. This area is about a 30 minute drive to/from CPX. I will probably be staying at the HIExpress this year, as I have run out of points for the Hampton Inn and still have plenty of Priority Club points.

    If we're going to try and be together, we should agree on a hotel.

    I already started some research. Looks like the Hampton Inn & Fairfield Inn South are closest.

    Nancy is concerned that this isn't going ro wind up like last tunaball. Where you you tell everyone to go and at the last minute you move back to Jersey.

    You tell Quinn and Bill they are going.
