Anybody ever stay at the Days Inn in Danville? That's where I'm staying.

Depending on which direction you're traveling from, and if you don't mind traveling a bit to the park, the Country Inn and Suites off of I-81 is a really nice place. It's about 25-30 minutes from Knoebels. May be a bit on the pricy side though. But if you find a few people who don't mind sharing a room, it could be economical.

Then again, I don't care. I stay at the Hotel RGB.

P.S. There's always camping for the bravehearted. Moosh just should break down and buy an RV and drive it across the country.

After a night of marathon coaster riding I want a hot shower and comfy bed. No camping for me (although I do enjoy it).

I know some people that"LOVE" that ride;)

I just got back from an overnight at Knoebel's and I did stay at the Red Roof Inn in Danville. (That was the reason for my thread two weeks ago about the Little League World Series)

The room was as basic as you could get and I paid a total of 43 bucks for the room with taxes. (I used one of those value clipper type of coupons and they accepted it because they weren't full.)

It's not a Hampton - which was about double the cost with thier coupon, but it was quite clean and had hot water in the shower. (The pillows were paper thin and there were no tissues - but The Gideon's had made an earlier appearance.)

The first thing I did was to check the covers and the mattress for bed bugs, crotch crickets and other assorted surprises and thankfully found nothing.

I was going to use a cabin at the campgrounds, but it happend to be very un-seasonably cold on Monday night (mid 40s) and I didn't have bedding on hand. I wa also in shorts. I considered just sleeping in my car near the 24 hour TA or Walmart on Rt. 42, but I read a few things about people getting assalted from doing such a thing and I didn't want to (especially when I found the coupons).

I will try to post a trip report by the end of the week - but this is my 2 cents about the Red Roof Inn.

I'm not sure how I missed that. Well, given that I got a discounted nonrefundable rate, I guess I'll have an opinion to share for next years questions. :)

I live in Bloomsburg, so you can stay with me. I rent my basement out at a bargain price.

That doesn't sound creepy at all. ;)

Not from someone with "Crazy" in their screen name. :)

Hey now...;)

Is your basement anything like this?

I have stayed at the Red Roof almost every time I have visited Knoebels. I never had any issues with the rooms. Sure, it's not the Marriot but it's not a dump either. I have always had great customer service, a clean room, hot water, working everything, no bugs, and plenty of basic stuff (towels, cups, etc.) What more do you need? :)

There are several motels off of that exit, plus you can't beat Mom's Dutch Kitchen. :)

Last year's post-Phunfest activities was especially awesome, despite the complaints from other guests. ;)

"...post-Phunfest activities..."

Such a g-rated way of saying it! lol

Wednesday, September 2, 2009 7:41 PM

I don't know how else to say it. My eyes are still burning from last year! ;)

I'm still in pain from the Matt orgy. ;)

I've stayed in that Red Roof a few times, but I'm really not a fan. Isn't there a Hampton Inn across the street now? I seem to recall staying there and being MUCH more comfortable (admittedly at a higher cost, but sometimes it's worth it...)

I have a hard time justifying any more money than necessary for a room in which all I'm going to do is sleep and take a shower. It's not like I'm living there for a week.

I must admit though, I have gotten a little more selective over the past couple years. I do still start with the cheapest and research from there until I find something that's tolerable to me. More often than not, I end up with the cheapest I can find.

I've stayed at the Super 8 in Mifflinville (i think thats the town) the past couple years. It's a little east on I-80 from the exit for Knoebels but it is a decent hotel. As most people said I'm not a big hotel snob since it's pretty much just a place to sleep and shower.

I'll be back this year for both days. Look for the guy with the Denver Broncos number 55 jersey if it's warm. If not I'll break out the Flyers jerseys. Might be wearing a Flyers jersey one day anyway as I am now a partial season ticket holder :),

When we do trips we're usually gone at least a week so the hotel room(s) become home away from home.

I'm still a hotel snob in this economy. :)
