Matt, where are you staying? We went to our 1st Americade last year and camped. We are looking for a motel this year.

On the Americade message board its been mentioned that Feb. 1st is a good time to start looking when deposits are due for rooms reserved last year. I made a few calls so far and the only place with rooms were priced at $160-200/night. But that was on Canada St. We'd like something more reasonable, like $100/night or less and don't mind having something out of the center of Lake George.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

John

>>>travelocity still has lots for under $ 70 in the area

When I use tavelocity to search for the Lake George Area for Jun 8-12 I find three hotels. The cheapest is $109/night, but that hotel has no rooms available when I try to select it.

i looked about a month ago, things fill up fast

i just looked a minute ago, found the following avaible right now

lake george super 8 $ 80

lake george travelodge $ 75

glens falls econo $ 80

saratoga springs $ 59

i searched for july 7-12 and did glenns falls as the target

i would try priceline before i actually spent that much on hotels

i would try a two star hotel at about $ 45 on priceline and see what happens

all they can do is say no

Yes lots of cheap rooms available in July. However, Americade is June 7-12. :) Not too many cheap rooms available then.

Also, from what I have seen Travelocity seems to really suck. I'm getting error pages, which lists the wrong 800 number for their customer support (I got Citibank when I called it). Their prices are higher than you can book the hotel with directly. I tried calling their customer service line when I found the correct 800 number, got put on hold for 25 minutes and then got disconnected.

Lookin forward

I'm looking forward to Americade and have books my room about 30 minutes away. I will take in some of the sights with the Rally, but will be out riding alot, hopefully with Andrew and several of the other 1800 riders. I plotted Andrew's Friday ride on my GPS and it looks really good. Visiting lots of friends on the trip back and also going to the Hoot, so June should be a great month.

Jazzy,

We just booked 6 rooms for Monday & Tuesday night, in that little motel Andrew recommended. Talk about cheap, but nice. I am looking forward to the trip as well.

Anybody interested in a two room suite right off the exit and very near the main drag, let me know. It is $160 + a night and requires a 3 day minimum. We have done that 2 years in a row, and decided to change this year. Our Rooms are now $48 + a night and no minimum. Quite a change. Thanks to Andrew deLivron!

Bulldog, sounds like you almost own the place if you took 6 rooms. In less I read it wrong, their web page says they only have 8 rooms total. Did they have any rooms left for the rest of the week of Americade? I might give 'em a call. :)
