I stay at the motel 6, its not very nice but its close to the track and cheap. Honestly your not in your room too much during the weekend because your at the track or cannery row at night. Ill be up there this year too, are you going to rent a bike or just drive? I rode the bike up there one year and it was a disaster, the cops are crazy about tickets and the traffic sucks.

I hate Laguna, it's just so damn far, lol - 2 hours 5 minutes door to door! Missed three races, 2 SBK, 1 MotoGP in the last 18 years. If you want, pm me your email and I will send you some info.

Jeebus.... the guy is coming from Australia and you're suggesting the Motel 6!? :headshake

To the original poster, there are quite a few nice places in Monterey. If you want to be in the middle of the action, get something on Cannery Row.

Laguna is amazing and Monterey is a VERY nice place to visit, enjoy your trip!

I know right! I didnt know how much he was looking to spend and just posted where i stay. Whatever the place you decide to stay at, get it soon, rooms are far and few when the time gets closer to the race.

thanks guys, i talked to my boss today and if i havent got th etime off accumalated for leave then i cant go, that and the fact i want to take time off to race a local series here in Victoria Australia isnt helping my cause either. I work a roster of 2 weeks on 1 week off, hopefully it turns into a better roster and i can go, my suspicions are that i wont be able to go again. If i do go ill have to be last minuite and see what i can do. I cant even take time off without pay.

I didnt forget, i just didnt remember

If you end up being able to go and you're unable to find a hotel just post up on the forum, there are plenty of people here willing to help out a fellow enthusiast. If I'm out there I'm sure I can find some room for you to stay with me.
