    Re: Check your Reservations!

    You may want to check over on the Hot Rod board. I think someone had extra rooms they would give up. Your experience is exactly why I do it myself. Well that and it's cheaper. Here's a link.

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.
      I over booked some rooms we had a car back out due to gas $$$$$$$$$$$$$ i will not cancel till we start the tour
      if you need a room lets try to hook up

          Thanks BluLightning and Mrs Crankshaft. I am for sure out a room in Iowa, confirmed it today. Manager at Fairfield Inn said the travel agent cancelled ALL its reservations there. FYI anyone else who used the agent and reserved a room there.

          MRS Crankshaft- I sent you a PM. If you have something for sale June 11, I'll gladly buy it. I sent the guy on the Hot Rod board a message, too, though it looks like someone else might have gotten to him first.

                  I got a call from my hotel in Madison. They wanted to know if I was still planning on being there. My bet is that since I made my reservations in September that they hoped I had eithe: 1) Forgotten or 2) Changed my travel plans. It could also be that they have discovered that a large group is coming and they want to put my room up at double what I reserved it for.

                            No, it wasn't that one. Rest assured that I will let you know who it is, especially if the choose not to honor the reservation.

                                I was checking rooms last night, and the 'clerk' at the Ames Fairfield Inn told me the 'travel agent' had cancelled all the rooms......needless to say, The Travel Agent got a call from me first thing this morning. The lady was really nice, and greatful to hear there was a problem there. She said the 'list' had just been sent to the hotel managers along the route, and that she doesn't deal with anyone else, just to make sure everything is correct. She checked with the Fairfield manager, and sure enough, the 'clerk' was wrong. All is well there. I think the lady at TTA was named Mary Ann, but whatever her name is, she had the decency to call me back, twice today. She was a pleasure to deal with. I feel much better, but next year I'm doing my own rooms. 8)
