I'd have a rental car - assuming I could park a non-BMW? Anyway, just trying to get some help on how to go about doing this given I don't know the area at all.

Any help appreciated.

I don't see the advantage of getting a room near SB. I prefer Thousand Oaks (60 miles south on US 101), Westlake Plaza, and have a very nice drive to SB bimmefest morning.

We have a nice drive the day before. And the day after. Don't really need one the day of, too.

No kidding. I'm looking for a hotel now and it appears that most (if not all) are booked.

Try Lompoc if you can't find lodging in SB.

For BF attendees who are starting to panic because you can't find a place to stay in SB without taking out a bank loan to pay SB lodging rates. May I suggest that you try Lompoc in North Santa Barbara county. Lompoc is only 45 minutes away from SB, it has a Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn Express, Days Inn, Quality Inn and a few other motels. Lompoc is on Hwy 1 so its a short beautiful drive down to SB and rates are much cheaper than SB. Another suggestion is Beullton, you can stay in the inn made famous in the movie Sideways.

G-Man
Who lives in 20 minutes away from Lompoc in Santa Maria, an hour drive to SB.

Ramada seems like party central. I've got one there too. Any place in particular where people are going to hang out (party)?

She doesn't need a room for Sat. It's cheaper to just split mine. I was going to room w/ SWISS for the weekend but he had to cancel.

I'm holding the Sat. night reservation until Wed. If no one's interested in taking it over I'll cancel it then.

Which hotel is this? How much, and how many people?

Thanks!

It's the Ramada, Sat. night, $166 including tax. I don't remember if it's for one or two beds though and it's not stated on the confirmation.
