Uhhh....it appears that this thread's title no longer reflects where we're staying and it seems likely that we'll have to stay at several hotels to accommodate everybody.

Howsabout one of the moderators renaming this thread something more generic like: The Carlisle Hotel thread May 15th-17th 2020 or something similar.

FWIW..

WE have a New NEW Hotel..

Further up I-81 but Just OFF I-81 so easier to get to long run. Given the other hotel is up US-11 from our old Hotel.

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Harrisburg West
2055 Technology Pkwy.
Mechanicsburg, PA 17050 US

They would be $137

WE will have 30 rooms AND a Meeting Room.

The OTHER Hotel we will still have as an option should we run out of room with the 30 rooms at the first hotel.

I will edit this post once I get all the info.

Sorry about any confusion. Just given how hard it was to find a hotel at all that had room.. jumped at the first one that was reasonable.

OK.. The previous Hotel that works. Just they only had 20 rooms reserved.

Often we need in excess of 30 ( Thus the second hotel ).

BUT if others go online and get the new hotel BUT DO NOT get the locked rooms then that will get us the 30 rooms with a block out for the late people.

Real issue is unlike years past the chance of going across the street to get a room is minimal. THey have 3 events going on right now.

So, Hotel #2 will be the backup hotel for those that find there is no room in the end. This works best anyway as the second hotel has a cut off date in late April as opposed to March 15.

We have the best of both worlds. 50 hotel rooms, and the two Holiday Inns are not far from each other. In the same general area.

Charles,

What is the cancellation policy for the rooms blocked at each hotel? I like to make reservations early but not if I can't cancel a reasonable time before the event. You never know what may come up before then. This year I'm waiting for details on the Manta 50th road trip in CA. I'm pretty sure I want to go and I'll probably visit my son in CA after the trip so I may not make it to Carlisle.

So long story short. We will keep Hotel #1 as the Main Hotel, and I will see if we can get a meeting room there.

Hotel #2 will be the backup hotel for those that find there is no room in the end. This works best anyway as the second hotel has a cut off date in late April as opposed to March 15.

So Hotel #1 is 6 miles further than old Hotel ,that's not too bad ,30 min from show field, and Hotel#2 is almost 40 minutes away from the Showfield?
Is that Correct ? I hope they don't mind us with Trailers,, hope not... too bad..LOL

Please find out about the meeting rooms Hotel #1 on web site ...I think they have a couple Thanks

Hey, I called and got my room changed to an earlier date, Rate lowered to the lower price, at the same place, on the phone. Remember the telephone? You pick it up, it makes a noise, you punch in a nos, you talk to a person, (even though they hardly speak English), tell them the dates you want, write it down, ask for a confirmation nos, write it down, Jezze Louise, You have a room. Crap that was hard.:lmao:
Charles is right, best of both worlds. Next time, I would recommend someone scoping it earlier, Take care, Jarrell

As with most car shows, drinking is prohibited on the showfield. Although I seem to recall that Carlisle sold beer. Of course, people still do down a few beers at car shows, but discreetly, and hopefully not with the intent to get wasted.
Actually, here is the Carlisle show field alcohol policy:
