    We batted 75% at this dump across the street from the comfortable inn host hotel. 4 rooms and one of the rooms had bed bugs! Guess who the lucky one was. Look up on Google and you will see it, I hear the uncomfortable inn has a roof that is ready to cave in.

    I think we need to explore other hotels, as these two are uninhabitable, at least least the woodrige.

    Dan and Lyndon are already on top of it, and may have already found a new host Hotel, South-West of the track I believe, and it's big enough to hold every single one of us all in one location:beer
    Let's face it, many of us only get to see each other once, maybe twice a year at these event's, and having everyone in one place to socialize(tell lies) is a big part of the gathering. It's hard to catch up with people at the track during time runs, and racing.

    Let's hope this works out:TU:

    After many years at the un-comfortable Inn in Alma, I'm done after this past weekend. What a dump! There were buckets and garbage cans in quite a few hallways catching rain water. They said they were booked, and there were only a few people there. We decided that they really were booked due to the fact that all 30 rooms that were rentable out of 400 were spoken for.:Dou:

    I had access to an Uncomfortable inn room, used the bathroom........slept in my truck!

    Yea, we couldn't figure out HOW it could be sold out yet very few people there. Then it dawned that most rooms were un rentable and others were for moldy mattresses.:laugh:

    I agree with Tom a new place that could hold most everyone would be ideal.

    I wonder if this is why the last couple years rooms at the Maxfields are getting harder and harder to come by. From what I understand, for 2015, people who have stayed there the last 10 years were given a call a few weeks ago and offered a room. Everyone else is on a waiting list. And I saw that waiting list when I checked out and it's a good 20-30 names deep.

    Please pick a new Hotel, as mentioned above, I have stayed at the Comfortable Inn three times and the one kitty corner once.

    No Good!!

    My son brushed his teeth said the water tasted bad, I ran the water in the tub and an orange blob of rust/goo came out. No ****!! We got bottled water after and feel fine, no harm done.

    Please make sure the parking lot party can still happen as that is a great get together, and one of the only times I get to eat the best Gumbo EVER!!

    Been staying at Maxfield for near on 10 years now. They give a courtesy call about a week before the race to confirm that we will be using our reserved room. That way, if we didn't want it, they could fill it with someone that was on the waiting list. When they called this year, they even asked if we wanted to reserve for next year. Well, heck yes.

    Don't want to have to stay in the Howard City no tell motel we were stuck in a few years back. :rolleyes:

    only 7 consecutive years at Maxfields for me, I guess thats why when I got the courtesy call, I wasn't asked if I wanted to reserve for next year :Do No::rolleyes:

    Better call them tomorrow and re-up for next year..... if they aren't full up already. The one year we stayed in Howard City was because we waited till after we paid the bill to reserve, and they were all ready full for the next year. But if things move over to Greenville, that will give you another chance with out having to stay a proverbial dump.

    trust me, tried twice. Got a text (from a fellow racer) before I even got to the hotel that it was full for next year and they are starting a wait list. We got on that wait list when we checked in. when we checked out, since it was another person at the front desk I asked about reservations for next year. she said they are putting everyone on a wait list. Maxfields hasn't been consistent in the past, so I figured asking at checkout, what do I have to lose.

    We stayed in Ionia at the American Inn.......very clean and up to date....brand new restaurant next door. Stayed at one of the flea-bags last year and that did it for me.

    'Been at Maxfield's for many years now and happy to be on the already-reserved list for next year.

    They have been real nice and the place has always been nice and clean. Quiet heat/AC units, too, that don't wake you up every time they light up. :grin: BP

    Update, I. Have over 132 bed bug bites on my back arms and legs, a visit to the doctors office for steroids and cream, plus $200 to have the house fumigated!! F me, I have disputed the bill with the credit card company, called the board of health in gratiot county and finally talked to the hotel manager yesterday, she will get back to me. I have never heard of any one I know getting these things, a real pain in the ass, the wife tore apart the house and is pissed to say the least. I have learned a lot about bed bugs in the last few days, watch out for movie theaters and airplanes now! I am on a plane right now and I just spoke to the flight attendant and it is becoming an issue, our plane is new and has leather seats for just that reason.

    The race was great however!

    Remember when catching Crabs was the worst thing you could catch when you visited a Bar.
    Now you Look at someone and you catch Ebola or Aids! Now we go to a race to relax and have fun and Bring some Nasty Critters home to our family. Terrible :mad:
