Hotel recommendation for Bimmerfest 2010

New location means a lot of last minute question marks. Looks like the closest Motel 6 in in Arcadia about 8 miles away. Notice there are a few low rent motels in the area, search Lincoln Motel, Pasadena Inn, and Oak Tree Inn, all look to have good parking and be cheap enough. So where have you all made plans?

Whatever you do, do not stay at a hotel/motel that is on the north side of the 210 freeway. That is not a nice area at all. It is a high crime area! Find a hotel that is near OLD TOWN PASADENA.

Marriott Courtyard FTW

Should be a lot of us there, it appears to be less than 1 mile from the Rose Bowl. It will be pretty funny watching a line of Beemers going less than 1 mile on Sat morning to line up at the gates. Ask for the AAA rate, is like $127 a night.
