    At the rally in Charleston WV, there were vast quantities of excellent hotel rooms near the site(s). Unfortunately, that rally received a lot of criticisms for various reasons, among which was the fact that the rally was split up over two different sites that were miles apart. Our hotel was right next to the air conditioned vendor area, and all in all I thought it was a great arrangement. But the camping crowd at the college had some legitimate complaints.

    When the microburst storm came thru the camping area of that rally and deposited some of the tents in the river and wrecked the beer tent, my crew and I were happily enjoying free beer at happy hour at a very nice downtown hotel with our bikes safely parked in the basement. My kind of rally.

    I made reservations for four nights at the Super 8 in Marshall, MO. Just north of Sedalia. Made them threw Expedia.com. I just called the motel to confirm and I'm in their system. Rates were very fair. IMHO.

    I was at Charleston also, and I was camped at the college, and my tent was destroyed, and I camped under a portico that night, and then duct taped my tent together the next morning, and helped to erect a makeshift beer garden tent, and enjoyed free beer that night, and...had one hell of a good time!! It's what you make of things that counts!

    I am glad you called the hotel direct.

    I think I'm gonna do Marshall as well, and set up a tent at the rally site....

    I booked directly with the hotel....I'm in.

    Ask for a top floor. These types of buildings allow you to hear the people walking around in their rooms above you.
