Show Hotels and Other Useful Information

With Morgan Show season starting next month everyone is beginning to think about what hotels they will be booking when they travel and, if it is a show they have never been to, what other amenities are in the area.  I would like to start Morgan Horse Show “Hotel”  and  Show “Restaurant/Area Attractions” categories, where users can post what hotels they have used and what there is in that area, recommending a particular place or not.  Knowing things like the beds are uncomfortable, pets aren’t allowed, or a certain restaurant is open late is helpful information to have prior to getting to the show.

    There is a BAD hotel (scary, really) that we stayed at a couple of years ago. I can’t remember the name but is was the opposite direction from the Fairgrounds as the main strip in the Dirksen area. It used to be THE hotel for the Jubilee many years ago I am told, but when we got there we thought it was closed (that’s how bad it looked). There were people literally living there and people would peer out of drawn blinds and watch me while I walked my puppy. One night a guy walked out to the back of the property carrying something and all of a sudden all these stray, feral cats came running out of the woods (I guess he was feeding them). It was just WEIRD and creepy. If anybody knows what hotel this is post it please. I would like to save people the trauma!

    Also the Red Roof Inn on the main strip is OK. It allows dogs. A little rough around the edges but all in all was okay.

    The Traverse City Pie Company in East Lansing at the Michigan Shows is TO DIE FOR!! Don’t miss it if you like pie.

    Check our the Pampered Palate at the Penn Ohio Morgan Show in Meadville, PA. Very good lunch sandwiches and Green Mountain Roasters coffee.

    I know it’s a little early in the season to be thinking about Oklahoma but if I don’t do this now – I’ll surely forget.
    Oklahoma City is the home for the Federal Aviation Administrations (FAA) “school” for all air traffic controllers thus, the need for short-term housing for the controllers in training. There are countless fully furnished apartment complexes in the very near vacinity of the fairgrounds that are available to “rent” on a weekly basis for less than most average hotels.
    I have stayed at some of them and they offer everything you need for the long trip away from home from an in room washer & dryer to literally the kitchen sink. On one of my trips to Oklahoma (and most of the horse show cities a frequent) I aquired a yellow pages so that I can find things I need in the area including the apartments, dry cleaners and of course all night eateries. Now, with the internet at our fingertips you could probalby just pull them up online. Hope this helps.
