    where to stay?

    i'm planning to go to this year's SOC. it's my first time to go there. do you have any recommendations on hotels to stay in? looking for a low price hotel since i won't be staying inside for long.. just a place to rest and sleep...

    Camping is nice because its on site, but it probably full now. Everything in Monterey is probably booked or expensive. You could probably find something cheap in Salinas.

    Lots of camping available still but not at the nicer spots.

    What are the nicer spots, and what makes some nicer than others? Planning on reserving tonite or tomorrow, and some info would be nice instead of blindly picking. Thanks

    Camp B, Chaparral has full showers, baths, and tables and power at all sites. The rest are more primitive. Unfortunately its full. I will be at H, at the top of the downhill course.

    The camping fee they charge for on-site camping, along with all the rest of it, like the 50 plus dollar Ride/ Tour w/ Specialized is outrageous!. The Tour should be free, and the entrance fee should be included in the camping fee and the camping fee should be half of what it is! Good lick finding a Hotel for less than $275.00 also. It is cost prohibitive for anyone but sponsered industry types and racers to attend unless you live nearby and can just pay the daily admission IMHO.

    I don't think the camping fee is out of reason. Most of the sites are normally parking lots and it takes a lot to get them up and running as camp sites (bathrooms, showers, etc). The expo pass is included in the race fee BTW,

    Staying at Days Inn, Salinas ... still pretty good deal last week when I reserved. Around 60-70 I think? And you can split that if you get the 2-bed version.

    Just don't eat at the Dennys down the street before the race.

    Can you use the showers in a campground if you are staying at a different site? Would anybody even know?

    Showers are fair game for all.
