The entries that you see below are a compilation of submittals by folks on the ST-Riders Email list
along with a few contributions from myself. I make no guarantees as to any of the information in this listing.
When using it, pay attention to the "Year of Stay". That will give you a feeling as to whether the prices
may have increased since the submitter stayed at the motel.
