    Cool More Lodging Options

    Hearing in another thread that most hotels were booked, I decided to look through the list of hotel/motels on the rally site. I noticed that some of the smaller ones were missing. So here are two very motorcycle friendly places. They are your traditional "park in front of your door" motels in a horseshoe shape. Appear to be very clean and only about four miles from the rally site. The Street Rodders stay at them during their annual show and you know how they care for their rods! I called and they don't have any bookings, yet!

    Ho Hum Motel
    1660 Williston Rd
    S. Burlington, VT
    802-863-4551

    Ethan Allen Motel
    1611 Williston Rd
    So. Burlington, VT
    802-863-4573

    Oh, did I forget to mention that they are just down the street from Hooters?

    Just to add to Mike's information:

    Ho Hum motel is owned by former/present Harley owner, nice people.

    Ethan Allen Motel was used in the so so movie with Jim Carey, "Me Myself and Irene", rent the movie and preview the motel!

    I've been thinking the same thing. Maybe Thursday night around dusk.
    FWIW: Al's French Frys have been around for as long as I can remember. They'll probably have a booth at the rally. But, it's not as good as the real thing. Al's is kinda a retro place.... glass block walls and all that 60's stuff. It's a favorite hangout for street rodders too.

    You bet Al's booth at the CVE will be crankin out fries, burgers and dogs.
    Maybe a ride to the South williston store would be another neat feature for the MOV to put together as part of the local hospitality function.

    Thanks for all you Mooovers have done already.

Well don't lose sleep. Why not start posting which joints are full?

    I would bet that places like Mary B's, the Topnotch, Shelburne Farms, Basin Harbor, Stowe Mountain Resort have available high quality (high tax revenue) accomodations waiting to be reserved by your credit card.

    You are helping keep our tax burden from rising even faster......mindful of your fleecing..err contibutions yer locals up in the sticks will most likely be helpful in suggesting possible accomodations.
    Huh, translation please!

    High Rooms Tax????

    Thanks for coming to Vermont and supporting our local economy. The high rooms/meals taxes you will pay help keep my taxes lower.
    Raven, you need to get out more. The VT rooms and meals taxes are lower than almost every place I travel to. I have already posted a link to the chamber of commerce as well as a list of lodging located in Addison county.

    Back to Lodging

    Riders must like the idea of a traditional motel. Heard the rooms are filling up.

    Just down the road (easy walking distance) is a real diner too.
