    Thanks for the reminder Blacktie - glad I followed your suggestion as one motel had me in a smoking room which is not for me.

    I recommend all who have not done so to follow Blacktie's advice - it took me about 10 minutes to make 5 calls for peace of mind

      Did they fix you up?
      Yes. As I hoped it was a employee screw-up and everything is fine. Had visions of trying to sleep in a SSR with no reclining seats and no room. :'(

        Thanks for the tip! We used the "travel agency", a typical newby mistake, and when checking I found several hotels didn't have us by name, but had blocks of rooms reserved. Now that's a fine mess we've gotten into, Ollie. :o

          I bet you wont make that mistake again. They are more expensive & I have heard complaints every year about them.

            I've never used the travel agency (always booked on my own); it appears that their rates are higher (a cut for their company?), and their cancellation policy is terrible; they apparently book blocks of rooms in each city, then identify the individual names (of persons staying in the respective hotels) close to the cutoff date; at some point, it appears that they release unsold/unneeded rooms, about mid-May or so.....

              Those rooms being released in May is great for those who may be sitting on the fence trying to decide whether to go or not.

                I received my confirmation at so far so good. I booked with them for only 3 nights, the others I did on my own.

                  LadyGT-
                  I hope cheaper rooms will coax to into coming along this year. (You did say you couldn't make it, didn't you? Hope I'm wrong.) If the rooms don't do it.....I think I do owe you a beer....... ;D
                  You guys are so right about the 'Agency'. Being new, I thought I was so smart to book early and beat the rush.......shoulda became a 'Freak' first. >

                    Re: Check your Reservations!

                    i used travelocity. the rates where ok and if you have a problem, you just give them a call. i've always had good luck with them in the past.
                    having said that, i'll still confirm my reservations. good idea.

                      Everyone in our group checked their rooms and all are OK. We have never had a problem with Best Westerns.

                            Ohhh, that is just not right. ;D
                            It's not the destination, but the journey and the friends you make along the way that counts.

                              Does that location come with any "benefits"? ;D

                                WONDERFUL. > I was not aware of all the issues with the travel agent and I thought I was way ahead of the game booking my rooms in December. I booked six nights with the agent and when I made the calls yesterday, only three hotels had my name. And according to the guy I talked with at Fairfield Inn in Iowa, they only have half as many rooms available June 11 as the travel agent requested (they also did not have my name). Booking a room there independently is now impossible because they are full. So what am I supposed to do? keep my fingers crossed?

                                I'm pissed that I paid for all these rooms in advance and I don't even know for sure if I'm going to have a place to stay.
