I know it is still 5 months before Holiwood Nights, but I got a head start on looking for hotels for that weekend. I booked 2 nights at the Baymont Inn for $67.00 a night. Comfort Inn wanted $152.99 a night. Santa's Lodge is not posting rates for that weekend yet.
They don't even live up to their name, ridiculous , more like insane. However, since that price is so high predate, then I would imagine if you dropped in their around midnight you might get a really good deal. I still say the best deal is finding a group and splitting a cabin at Lake Rudolph.
We got that same sweet deal at the Baymont last year. Word of Advice - Call the hotel and verify your reservation before you get there. I had my confirmation printed out, but they did not have it in their system. took about 2 hours to get it straightened out. UGH!
We'll be in a Legendary Cabin that weekend. Already reserved and a van full of people to share it with.
