Thanks for the heads up!

For those of you unfamiliar, it's right off of the turnpike at exit 59 (about 60 miles from CP). If you book it at that rate, be prepared to fight for it - I'm sure they'll try to say it's an "obvious" mistake and will try to not honor it.

Or maybe they really do have THAT hard of a time getting people to stay in Toledo! :)

I don't think I'd *want* to stay anyplace that offers $10 rooms...

Den, I was thinking the same thing...One thing's for sure, I'd bring a black light and scan the bed before getting in

$10 dollar hotel room, I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole with a latex glove strapped to the end. If you want a nice hotel room for a decent price in the Toledo area, try the Sleep Inn and Suites in Northwood. My best friends mom is the manager.

Oh yeah, like the "high class" hotels are likely to be any cleaner! You think people like R.Kelly, Tommy Lee, and (insert favorite ballplayer) are staying at the local "Mircotel"? Nope. They are more likely at the Ritz Carleton. Now ask yourself, do you want to stay in *that* room?

My wife has worked in the hotel industry her entire life and we have a good number of friends who do too. (makes it easy for coaster travel) You'd be surprised at the number of "name" guests that the $89 to $159 a night hotels get. A lot more than I ever imagined...

Granted that's not exactly "Microtel" or "Motel 6" level, but it's still low middle (Fairfield Inn, Hampton Inn, Courtyard, Hilton Garden, Residence Inn, etc)

Ten bucks? That's steep. Check out these prices for a little cheap Ripcord and go-kart action while at Coaster Mania.

As for the Quality Inn, once you have the confirmation (they e-mail it right away) with the price on it, it'd be awfully hard for the hotel to argue otherwise. It doesn't look like a dive at all. The regular rates go past $100. Indoor pool and jacuzzi too.

Sure, it might be a mistake -- or maybe it's deliberate. Notice that the rates scroll from highest to lowest so maybe they're testing if folks will scroll that far for design psychology. When you get down to it, Choice Hotels will still make a couple of bucks profit off your stay that wouldn't have happened otherwise. Anyone here seriously planning on staying in Toledo before the $10 rate popped up? It's an incremental sale.

An empty room is a loss. A room at $10 more than covers the maintenance-billing with the possibility of some long-distance surcharges or pay-per-view (if it has that) to boot.

Thats not dive. Being a Toledoan even though I am from Michigan I can attest to that.

Not a dive...by Toledo standards! :) Then again, Motel 6 is like the Ritz-Carlton by Swanton standards! ;)

I kid - I kid 'cuz I love. I spent a year in Toledo one day...

The Quality Inn in Toledo is hardly any match for some of the dives I stayed in on coaster trips. I can remember staying in one 'motel' outside Allentown - people were actually making their homes in some of the rooms - laundry hanging from their front windows and all. I woke up at about 230 am to the sreaming and raving of some burnt-out lunatic next door. Very scary. Kind of makes Quality Inn seem like the flagship of the Hilton chain.

Actually its not that bad of a drive. You can take the turnpike, or my favorite Rt.2!

We'll see how bad of a drive it is at 1 AM after hauling your carcass around the Point for 20 straight hours. ;)

There have been many times when I've thought about staying in Toledo rather than driving that additional hour to get home to Michigan, I've been that tired.
