For years we have been staying at the Hotel Carlisle due to thier large parking lots and what used to be great service. For those that didnt wangt to pay the premium there was a Super 8 next door. Close and Convenient for all. Lately the Hotel Carlisle has ben going down hill with this past year the worse.

I want to ask this.


Do you want to still stick with the Hotel Carlisle?

What would you all feel is reasonable a rate to pay for a hotel if different?

We will use this forum to discuss any thoughts and ideas. I believe Ken Seegers will be helping with this.

I have actually only been to Carlisle once back in 03', but however... I'm thinking of going this coming year. I actually stayed there at the Super 8 and really was low end. I stayed there because it was cheaper, but I was by myself. This time I'm bringing my GF.

I have always have had great experiences/stays at the Ramada Inn and noticed that they have one in Carlisle. Googling Ramada Inn in Carlisle showed me a price range of 69-99 bucks, granted, it's winter and not much is going on right now. It may be jack up during this types of shows as well, who knows, but I would think with a block of rooms under SuperCoupe Club of America, we may just come up with a decent price. Worth Checkin' into though!

Just my thoughts.... I guess I'd stay anywhere but Super 8. :)

Looking forward to seeing old faces and meeting new ones as always, thats for sure!! PLUS, I'm a big FORD man too.

Last year I didnt go due to my military obligation. But the year before I went with my tan LX and did very well . We accualy camp right there. Thers a team of us that make the haul down form the Buffalo region with our trailers. We get there first thing Thursday morning "set up camp and beging to party" .we have a guy with 48 Ft featherlight goose neck and a f-350 . the rest of us have f-150s pulling 20 to 24 ft trailers ... you cant miss us ..... these are our hotels ....

I don't know Ken. I have been staying at the Super 8 next to the Carlisle the last couple of years due to the cost. Does anyone know anything about the Super 8 South? It appears to be a newer building and different architecture than the one next to the Carlisle. It is the same price as the one by the Carlisle but it appears to have the same style rooms but no easy outside access. I would say any place that is less than $140.00 a night would do for me. I really like Comfort Inns. ;)

Generally prices go up during the event season.

The hotel Carlisle was nice because it has large lots and the super 8 was next door for people that dont want to spend over 100 a night. But like I said its been going down hill.

Im up to give it one more try but figured we could weight our options. Im down for any hotel but it shouldnt be out of reach for most of us and should hav ea nice lot to perhaps hang out in:O)

Problem with Hotel Carlisle is that there are way too many wings and people tend to get separated. Then several crowds develop because of the separation.


I did the super 8 next door because I was broke. Still broke and will always be broke. I usually camp out unless I bring the gang.

Rico the compoundness so to speak of teh Hotel Carlisle is what make sit good. The groups can always gather together if need be or wanting too. Its been done before.

But can another hotel tolerate us?..Heck we were kicked out of the super 8.....

Hotel Carlisle, I know the place is going down hill... but I think it is hard to beat for partying.

How is super 8's parking lot setup?

Chris,
The reason I did not include the Hotel Carlisle is the place is a dump. The super 8's isn't big, but the NY boys aren't welcomed. I can look into both, but I want people to know up front they are not the best.
Thanks

Lol. Not that one. But I've stayed at "A" super 8. Uh oh. What do you know about this one. I have 2 other hotels on the hook about a mile down the road. Econolodge and quality inn. Both very nice looking by their pics.

I spoke to both general mangers myself. They assured me they would take care of us very nicely. Partying, parking setup, full breakfast etc.. He went on and on about being a full service hotel. Prices are up to 120 for those.

Should I make the switch? Problem is if under 10 people reserve price gets jacked up.

How long ago did that happen?

I have stayed there the last two years without a problem but I am not from NY either.;) Plus it is nice and quiet there which is why I have noticed that it is mostly seniors staying there. :eek: I made my reservations there this past Sunday night.

If you mean the super 8 next to the hotel carlisle (Old Clarion inn?) - that was the worst place I ever stayed at. I almost could stay in the room it reeked of cigarettes so bad.

How much did you pay? How about canceling and reserving unde the group rate name lol

03-01-2011, 09:30 PM
Well the guy I talked to at super 8 couldn't find sccoa or supercoupe club but since hubby has a cdl we got a room with 2 beds for $107+tax....

so if there was a particular person to speak with you might include that becasue that guy was clueless

Crash00527
03-01-2011, 09:34 PM
of course they didnt. because the lady i spoke could barely hear/understand me, she had an Indian accent. but her name was Mina. I have backup plan. I also called the corporate # and requested assistance. They gave me a rate of 92+tax for all rooms. Now im just waiting for an email to confirm the block.

03-01-2011, 09:35 PM
so will I be able to adjust out price or cancel and rebook?

Crash00527
03-01-2011, 09:39 PM
you should. Wait until i get my actual conformation from someone who know whats going on and is actually gonna book it in the computer through corporate.

the guy at econolodge was much nicer and way more informative btw
