2017 US Loop Ride

The first night will be in Creston; second night in Coeur d'Alene (we will swing through Yaak and Libby); and third night in Kalispell (via Murray).

Hotels are a bit painful for this trip.  Sorry about that!  In Creston,the Ramada was full online.  I phoned and got a room, but clearly they were pretty full.  We may have to spread out to other 2017 08 Creston Couer Dalene Kalispell Overview 4hotels in the area, and since there must be events going on I strongly suggest booking something soon.

Coeur d'Alene was pretty reasonable if you ignore the US currency issue.  I booked that online without difficulty.  Well, without much difficulty.  Wyndham has revamped their web sites and they are a bit confusing.  Be sure to input the GWRRA Corporate Code (1000008705). Having done that you can see that somewhere there is a discounted rate. E.g. I had "rooms from $84" at the Coeur d'Alene Super 8.  But then I had to scroll down and select "more rates", then find "Member rate" or some such to find it.  I.e. the first page of rates displayed did not include the GWRRA rate. Persist!

The Super 8 in Kalispell seems to have attracted premium pricing for that weekend. $143SD + tax...ouch!  I went ahead with it anyway since most others were worse, but there was a lower rate at the lower rated Travelodge (also GWRRA...$116ish).  I believe we stayed there once before and survived, but I remember it being in need of renovation. Another interesting one that I saw was the Outlook B&B in Somers (just south of Kalispell).  It only has a few rooms, which is why I did not pick it for the base hotel, but it was $120 and claimed a great breakfast and excellent Tripadvisor reviews.
