Overflow Hotels

Official Overflow Hotel

Remember, folks – if you want our overflow hotels to have perks, like – particularly! – shuttles, we NEED to patronize the official overflow hotel. I do NOT blame people for just looking to see what the cheapest prices are. But…

…if we don’t patronize our overflow hotels they won’t make their costs back on a shuttle. And that means that we will NOT be able to have a shuttle again – not unless we institute, say, a $20 surcharge for shuttle use, or something else that nobody wants.

So please – do patronize our overflow hotel, friends.

Room rate is based on up to four people per room, though not all room types can accommodate 4 people. Roll-a-way beds are not available. Certain room types may be requested, but due to the volatile nature of the hotel reservations, we cannot always guarantee the desired room types will be available.
