I have heard back from Super 8. They still have 19 rooms left as of this writing. they have offered a rate of 99.00 per night, discounted from the standard rate of 119.00. he has also offered a discount at the nearby Comfort Inn of 125 single king and $135 two queen. This represents a discount from $139/$159.

That said, I booked my room at Super 8 via trip advisor, and the price was 89.00 a night.

Not too many other hotels listed in Fortuna. one thing I found was the almost universal hatred reserved for the Travel Lodge on all the aggregators sites's comments sections.

I have written their sales director back to enquire about if we need a promo code. I was also wondering if we should barter given the discount you can get through sites like Expedia or Trip Advisor.

The AAA rate is $103.49 for one queen room, so yes I would like a promo code for the $99 rate. I'm using the hotel's web site.

They may have a separate agreement with TripAdvisor. I see the $89 ($81 US) is no longer available - can others confirm? What they are now showing on TripAdvisor is... $103/night.

We may have to go with the $99 rate.

Lucky me.  $84.99 for a non cancellable room @ Super 8 for a King bed!  That rate may have been low due to early booking.

Last night the AARP rate for a single queen was $74.99, tonight the AARP rate is no longer available although it is still available for earlier dates.  It appears that once they book a certain number of rooms all the discounts are unavailable for the remaining rooms.

I have set up room blocking for 19 rooms at the Super 8.

Details:

tel: 707-725-2888
Promocode: Sport Touring West Coast Regional Meet
Rate: 99.99/night

If you have problems, email me at [email protected], as I have Google enabled on my phone and I will be able to get to sorting out any issues upon receipt of email indicating a problem.

We have 2 nights blocked May 20 and May 21, a mix of smoking and non-smoking rooms.

First come, first served.

If they book out all rooms before you get to making a reservation, David Enoch at Comfort Inn has also quoted a discounted rate at Comfort Inn, starting at $125 single king and $135 two queen. Let me know if you call too late too book at Super 8 so that I can confirm the deal still stands at Comfort Inn. I have not, as yet asked them to block any rooms at Comfort Inn.

Both hotels are on the Riverwalk, and stumbling distance from the aforementioned Eel River Brew Pub.

Cheers,

Kai

If you're riding the Oregon coast its about 165 miles to Astoria and then another 135 or so to Newport, a nice place to spend the night if you're taking two days to get to Fortuna and then from Newport to Fortuna it's just 335 miles or so, almost all with coastal views.  Before crossing the old bridge at Gold Beach take a ride out onto the jetty where the Rogue River empties into the Pacific.  Take a right just before the bridge and head due west.

Standing on the left with beer is me,  I was also holding beer at the original Custer meet, so it's no wonder I look familiar  (actually that goes for pretty much any STN meet.  Beerchug)

I've found that Florence makes a pretty good mid point stop.  Lots of reasonable hotel choices within a couple blocks of the downtown area. Plus the  ride from Waldport to Florence is arguably the best part of the Oregon coast.  Or Bend if I decide to ride the east side.

Cool. Glad to hear it.

In case you did not see the info, I have arranged with the Super 8 in Fortuna block a total of 19 rooms.Looks like at least two are already booked.

Here are the details:

tel: 707-725-2888
Promocode: Sport Touring West Coast Regional Meet
Rate: 99.99/night

Call the hotel, mention the promocode, and yah get the 99.00 rate (normal rate for single queen is 119.00).

Look forward to seeing you there.

Cheers,

Kai

P.S. I love the Wee. I sold mine a few years back to get the GSX 1250. I still miss that fun bike!
