Apparently the Microtel is sold out. After way too much digging I found this down the street a bit. As Dale warned long ago, there are other events in town and rooms, especially on Sunday night, are very tight. Also it can be hard to get non-smoking. This place has some interesting two room suite options also for a few people sharing. My room was $65 a night. Given the room options they seem to have plenty available.

I bookes through
