Show me one example of a chain seasonal "hotel" somewhere like Wildwood may have seasonal independantly owned "motels" that shut down from Labor Day to Palm Sunday, but I've never seen a Red Roof Inn that was closed for the winter.

I'd invite you to drive through Sandusky next winter. The "chain" hotels are mostly locally owned, so being franchised has really nothing to do with it.

I like hotels.

On another note, there are go-kart tracks in Pigeon Forge, Branson, and Gulf Shores with the name "Wild Woody."

If you where going to Six Flags, you wouldn't "want" to book a hotel 45 minutes to an hour away either.

The hotels built near KI were built because their was a theme park there. They were built almost within walking distance to the park. Most of those hotels would not be there without the park being there too.

I understand what you are saying when it comes to these KI hotels, but you are wrong. I get it that because they are near the big city, the hotels near KI may fill some rooms even when the park is closed for the season, which makes them more profitable over the year. I do not agree, however, that if KI was not near Cincinnati, hotels like this would be unprofitable.

Look at Hotel Breakers on Cedar Point property. They were built because they service the park. They close in the off-season. They are very profitable.

I'm only replying to try to make you understand why you are wrong. I have a feeling that I'm not going to be able to get through to you either. Even though I am throwing in the towel here, you still lose, because everyone here knows that you are wrong. Most everyone here still thinks that you are an idiot.

1: You dont have to book a hotel 45 minutes from GA, there is sufficent lodging nearby for the demand that exists.

2: How exactly do you know what would or wouldn't be there if the theme park weren't there? You're arguing a hypothetical for a situation that doesnt exist. Cincinatti is one of the larger cities in the area, I'm sure someone visits there for reasons other than going to kings island. You yourself said the hotels were 10 minutes from downtown.

3: Cedar point is beachfront property, there are other reasons to visit the great lake area besides an amusement park Great adventure is not so the comparison is not valid.

4: "Everyone here's" opinion is not valid. Of course you see this large need for a hotel near Great Adventure, you are a bunch of roller coaster geeks. The average family is just going to drive ot the Six Flags park that it located closer to their home, and not worried about coaster credits.

5: I dont really care what everyone here things about me. It's laughable. Despite all the namecalling Great Adventure is no closer to having a hotel on site than when Warner Leroy first built the park (in the middle of nowhere) how can I be wrong? I am not wrong until they find this ellusive partner. Hotels don't spring up out of the ether from a coaster geeks say so.. they get built where a need exists for one.

Google it yourself. Been going there for thirty years. Im not going to google every one of the hundreds of hotels to prove a point that you won't accept.

I only asked for one. I'm not finding any. Even if there are, it doesnt change the fact that Six Flags has been unable to partner with anyone, because noone wants to lay the cash out to build a seasonal hotel that would would need to be winterized and mothballed for the winter.

If it were that great of an idea, either Six Flags would have already been in the hotel business, or they would have partners lining up begging to build them a hotel. So far they've apparently found someone to partner up on some cabins or campsites, further proving my point that a hotel there wouldnt be profitable.

LOL I'm not going to spend time looking on the net for one. I've been there and seen it myself. Even if I show you proof you don't belive it, why would I wast my time now?

You lack a sense of humor, basic logic skills, and the ability to stick to an argument or prove a point. I dint need to prove something when you're the only person on this site that refuses to accept truth and logic.

My wife and I went to Ocean City in February once just to have a weekend away... I was surprised at the number of huge hotels on the beach that were just boarded up and closed for the winter. Major chains... Holiday Inns and such. I'm sure that's typical for seasonal vacation destinations. We have friends in Virgina Beach, and I've seen it to some extent there, too. (Even the McDonald's on the beach was boarded up there.)

On the bright side, we got an oceanside suite in a high-class joint for less than 50 clams/night.

No thats not true. I need a link. Also if they were going to close for the season, they'd already be closed by now.

Sandusky hotels close for the winter too, and I'm not just talking about Cedar Point owned hotels either. I'm talking chain hotels. I've seen it with my own two eyes.

And not only hotels, but restaurants, arcades, and other attractions as well like mini golf. Why in the heck would someone build a restaurant or mini golf attraction in Sandusky, and close it in the off season, if no one is going to be there from November to May?

Oh wait a minute. I said that I was out of this stupid conversation. 99.9% of CoasterBuzzers will disagree with you. It's kind of strange, creepy even, that you are so passionate about defending your goofball opinion on the issue.

I have, what some would say, a goofball opinion on something around here too, but let me ask you, what is your motivation for having this opinion? That intrigues me. Why do you stand so strong about this? Maybe you just like to argue? I do not understand.

I didn't like "Wildwoody" until it was pointed out that the park is located in Wildwood. Now I think it's kind of cute.

That's the whole point. It's a wild wooden coaster in WIldwood, NJ!

How much do you think a set of Sfgadv hotel Blueprints would go for (2005) ?

Just in case any of you think he's joking... He's not. He really does have the blueprints in his possession. I can vouch for him.

Comfort Inn Maingate shuts down when CP closes. Just try to book a room past October. The Econo Lodge on Cleveland Rd. is another chain hotel I can think of off the top of my head that shuts down. Not that you'll believe it...

I would venture to guess the ridiculous property taxes in NJ preclude this from happening, unless the hotel already exists in a resort area (near the ocean) where even a fleabag motel can charge 300 bucks a night and cover expenses for an entire year in the summer season.

OMG. Seriously. He has an answer for everything. Still arguing that the hotel has to be seasonal when it clearly wouldn't.

He had no answer to me when I told him that his opinion mattered less to me than mine mattered to him.
