2nd Annual Gathering 9-13-16/2018 - Motel Info

Post by BlueThunder » Thu Jun 07, 2018 9:56 am



Hotel for the 2nd Gathering Info:
Sept 13-16, 2018

Hampton Suites - Parkersburg South
64 Elizabeth Pike
Mineral Wells, West Virginia, 26150

304-489-2900

A block of rooms have been reserved under the name "GoldWings Docs" group. Mention the group name to get the room discount
The hotel has Free Wifi, free hot breakfast daily, outdoor heated pool, and plenty of parking for those who plan on trailering rather than riding.

Rooms are non-pet, non-smoking, double occupancy. Room rates are $95/night (discounted $55/night for us) for double occupancy. Find a roomie and the rate is $47.50/night.

Please be aware that you must reserve your room no later than September 3rd. After that date, rooms are available on an available basis and at the then available rate (i.e. no group discount). Also note that you have until September 11th to change or cancel a room.

I started another thread to make motel info easier to read and find.

Please use this thread to indicate if you're coming and booked. A head count is needed to ensure enough rooms are available. If not, then additional rooms can be obtained.

Thanks for arranging the rooms. Am I correct that all 4 days will be riding days so those of us coming from afar should book the nights of Sept. 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16? We should plan on arriving the afternoon of the 12th. and leave the morning of the 17th?

Cheers,

Jim

Hi Jim,
People will be arriving on different days based on their schedule. Some will be arriving Wednesday (no group ride as the ride to the hotel IS the ride :D ), some on Thursday and still others will be coming Friday. With that said, group rides will be done for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

This hotel was picked as they are motorcycle friendly, have lots of parking space for trailers and bikes and rooms rates are reasonable.

The location was picked for a central location to Ohio (i.e. Hocking Hills and the tripple nickel) and West Virginia.

I will be arriving Wednesday afternoon (I am 10 hours away). So I will book for four nights. If one is arriving on Thursday, book for 3 nights and so on.

Don't wait to long to book as rooms tend to go fast. Find a roomie and cut your cost in half! Post here if you want one.

Will plan to arrive on Wednesday afternoon. Looking forward to seeing the whole group from last year plus a few new faces. Hopefully I will be meeting up with others for the ride down. Last year we had Corkster 52, Wingcott, Detdrbuzzard, and myself. Hope we all ride together again.
