    I'm planning on going this year... looking for cheap, yet clean and nearby lodging... the reviews of the Super 8 motels don't look good and many of the other places are way far from the Hamvention site...

    If you've been there and have any hotel/motel advice, please let me know... Also would like free high-speed internet access at the place.


    Thanks,


    Robin N6RLS

    Hotels/Motels at Hamvention

    All I will say is that most of the good, clean motels/hotels are in the range of $100 a night so finding someone to share the cost is very beneficial if you don't need complete privacy for the few nights.

    A word of caution... Last year we stayed at the Baymont Inn & Suites in Huber Heights (not too far from Hara Arena) only to have the maid leave our room open and all our things were then stolen. I think the maid was involved but the manager refused to do anything about it even though the computer confirmed she had indeed left the room unsecured. She didn't even clean it! Why bother when you just made a nice "haul" with no effort at all... Avoid this establishment unless you are taking everything with you when you leave the room for the day!

    Good luck with your search for a room. Some people wind up staying in Cinci.

    Being it is only a little more than a month away, I'd be surprised if you can find much of anything for a room reasonably nearby it!

    There's a Hampton Inn in Springboro with a few rooms left. It's a quick drive (30min) up the highway to Dayton. There's also a Holiday Inn Express across the street.

    The Hampton is $85.00 a night. Free breakfast which they have decent selection of.

    There's a Bob Evan's across the street. MCM electronics is just down the road too which is a plus.

    Try the Holiday Inn Express and the LaQuinta in Tipp City about 15 - 20 minutes from Hara.

    I have an empty, empty 2br condo on Cincinnati's east side at I-275 and Beechmont Ave--the power and water are on, new carpet, appliances in place, etc.,but no furniture. Must be left clean!

    PM me if interested..............

    Comfort Suites Wright Patterson AFB

    We are here a week early on a family trip, ugh, and for fun, I asked the clerk about next weekend. NV on 5/14 or 5/15, but vacancy on 5/16.

    I'd guess the rate is about $85 for two double beds.

    Heads up for next year...

    Avoid the Days Inn on Harshman Rd. at all costs (this is the road that Needmore turns into, after it crosses I-75)!! I stayed there for Hamvention 2007 and it was a bit on the unsavory side, but sufficient. This year, it has become downright ratty and unlivable! The bedclothes had not been changed (one bed even had fresh cigarette ashes on the top sheets), the room had not been cleaned (or not sufficiently), there was no toilet paper in the bathroom, and all the furniture seemed to be falling apart. Overall customer service was terrible.

    I'm still itching from whatever was in the beds.
