Default Coolspring Show in June - Motels?

Hi

We are thinking of going to the coolspring show in June. It will be our first trip there. What motels would you recommend? The SWMBO is coming if that alters your recomendation.

Bob

Bob, We have been going out there for over 20 years. An easy place to get to that is reasonably clean with decent rates is the Super 8 Motel in Brookville


http://www.super8.com/Super8/control...opertyId=03751

It is about a 15 minute ride to the show from there ( which is about the best you can do at that place ) and is near many restaurants, fast food places and gas stations.

Bob
Start calling now because you usually have to book several months in advance (kinda like portland)
We usually book our hotel for the june show when we leave in October from the fall show and book for October when we're there in June...

Look up Brookville, pa on maps or something similar and find hotels or motels. There are at least three in that area. Hope this helps.

I stay at the days inn. It may have a different name now but I stay there and make my reservations a couple weeks in advance. They always have rooms and its cheap,, and they have a bar. Its not a resort but I think its a good deal
