Default Best In The West

Never been to this event. Going to make this year. Just wanted to get an idea where most people stay or name a suggested hotel.

Rent a trailer/ Rv Bob and stay on site. Firstly as its far far more fun and secondly.. The local hotels are........ Interesting.

Having said that, a further 15-20 mins drive and you can be in Bakersfield where there are some lovely hotels. I wouldn't mind spending a night or two at the one which Joe C arranged th banquets in last year.... Now that was a nice hotel!
I look forward to seeing you there in a few months.
Regards Al

Hi Bob, they are talking about The Padre Hotel in Bakersfield http://www.thepadrehotel.com/ I had Best In The West Banquet there last year, I say the best hotel in Bakersfield, but it will be a 40 minute drive from the Airport. Joe C!!!

I called the hotel and ask to speak with the women I booked the banquet with, I left her a message and see if they can give me a discounted rate if anyone would like to stay there, the regular price as of today is Oct 17-18 rate $139 Oct 19-20 rate $149.00. I am waiting for her to call me and see if they can give me better rates for those dates. Joe C!!!
