What was wrong with the Knott's Hotel? I thought having the bar there worked out fantastic. It made for a great meeting place and a great place to just hang out, and the staff there was a riot ... bringing me the Flaming Gorilla Fart, and the 3 Wise Men (or whatever those drinks were). I spent a ton of time in the bar with a ton of different VMFers.
I know that they surprised everyone with the parking charge, but otherwise, I thought it was a perfect place. I was planning to stay there again this year.
Stop rubbing it in......2 yrs in a row I was there, in 06 I'll be 2750 miles away with a fresh 489 cid big block and a 5 speed, but as much as I want to, I cant take that much time off to go in the new job
Their 4:00 PM check in even if your room is ready at 11:00 AM. See copy of my complaint letter I e-mailed to you. I have stayed at this hotel since it opened as the Buena Park Hotel in the '70's. Maybe never again.
Yeah, I can't get those Falming Gorilla Farts out of my mind. Last year just sitting next to you was enough to get me cut off at the bar. If they still charge for the parking lot they should provide drop cords and floor jacks, though. Anyway, I'm willing to risk it again. Might even try to talk some of my Mission Trail Mustangs buddies into joining us. BTW, should I bring the Camaro or the Vette this year? ::
