We originally had reservations at a B & B in Pontiac but then decided to save a few bucks (since we're traveling almost every weekend this summer). I made reservations at the Best Western since I thought that was Going to be home base. It looks like Quality and Best Western are right next door to each other so I'll keep my reservation at BW.

Yes they are right next to each other so either place is fine. I picked the Quality Inn because all rooms have refrigerators.

Looks like I actually talked the wife into this :woo:...I'm amazed!!! The car won't exactly be looking its best (got some repairs that I won't even start until after).....so the car show is probably out, but I would love to see everybody's.......unless, of course, it's one of those kind that gives prizes to anybody participating....:lol: I can't resist that;)

Only problem at this point will be work....rotating shifts and they are planning on forcing people to work overtime on their off days if they have extra work :brentil: but I'm gonna make the plans anyway and hope for the best.

So...is there a block of rooms for us or just anywhere at the motel is fine?

Really looking forward to meeting everybody...been to a couple meets before with other vehicles but this will be my 1st with the Tiki!

The Block of rooms isn't set up yet (waiting for the Town of Pontiac's Event planner) They should be set up this week (Diana) but I can tell you it will be the Quality Inn. You can wait for the block to be set up or you can book it now, the choice is yours. Here is the link if you need it... Pontiac Hotel | Quality Inn | Hotel in Pontiac, IL

Look forward to seeing you, it will be a great time. The Town of Pontiac rolls out the carpet for all the events they have. :thumbs:

This maybe is now a no show - date conflicts with a family thing - I'll be heading north, not south. :(
Darn it!!! I'll take you off this list! :(

Got the info from Ellie.

We have a block of 20 rooms at the Quality Inn. Cost is $89/night. I don't think that's a deal, but it's just basically holding the rooms for us. The block is under Pontiac Solstice Club.

There is a bus tour coming in that Friday night also, so you'll definitely want to make sure to get reservations in! As do I!! I forget I don't live there any more!!! :lol:

I'll start a new thread later this evening so all the info is at the top!

Yeah, they were both decent from Russ's report. I think the Quality Inn has a party room though.

Which reminds me...I need to call the car show guy. He sent me an email yesterday and I haven't had a chance to call him. I have their website though and can post when I start the new thread.

Road condition alert! Illinois 116 is closed west of I-57 between CR 8 (east) and Illinois 115 (west). For up to date info I found
MapViewer

The detour for 116 was not bad though, about 10 minutes extra on good roads. I was impressed how far one can see from the top of a 10 foot rise! :)

Hotel Update!

OK, there are only 12 rooms booked at the Quality Inn at $89/night.

We could only get the last 6 rooms at the Best Western at $80/night.

Deadline is June 20th! Even I need to call! If anyone wants a roommate, let me know and I'll share a room to free up space. So 18 rooms is all we have!

Blocks are under Pontiac Solstice Club.

I'll update all the info and start a new thread with numbers etc.!

Thanks for the head's up!

I need to pow wow with you, Russ & Cathy. I'm hearing our road situation leaves much to be desired. Which I figured. I was in Streator this weekend, but didn't get a chance to run around.
