A couple of things I learned from Bimmerfest 2006:

1. Go without kids (my wife and I had fun, but it would've been more fun to enjoy some nightlife and go hit some wineries).

2. Find a more fun hotel. Fess Parker's was nice, but too tranquil. If I am away from kids, I want to be in a spot closer to the action.

I agree on #1. I already told my oldest child she's not coming next year. She wasn't very happy

We stayed at the Ramada, so #2 wasn't an issue (even with 2 kids)

I was in Jever and SWISS' room at the Ramada long enough to take a leak and do a quick look see around it.

My wife would divorce me if I booked there.

I used the actual toilet though, unlike SWISS during his drunken stupor.

It doesn't matter which room, we're not staying at the Ramada. We ate at the Lemon Tree restaurant. Good food.
