Motels - There are more local options besides the four that we suggest. When dealing with a motel by phone, requesting a "discount" (e.g., AAA, senior, etc.) can often result in a quote lower than what is advertised online. Vacation Rentals - Often more pleasant than a motel. If sharing with several people, this option can also be less expensive. Before booking, make sure that you are aware of the full cost, which typically includes additional fees.


Local Directions & Parking - Details to supplement the map (right) or your own online driving directions.
Tips for using map on right
- Use your mouse wheel to zoom the view!
- The enlarged map has more features. For instance the map spots include a "View in Google Maps" link, which will show you a photo of the location, if available.
