Where are you staying at Unicon

If you’re going to Unicon, where are you planning to stay? We just sent in
our registration forms and I’m thinking of reserving a room at the Summit
Inn which we really liked in 1999. It’s right where the Muni action is at
least, but is a ways from the other venues. And it’s really a beautiful
spot. http://www.nwcue.org/rooms/snopass.html

Re: Where are you staying at Unicon

I’m thinking about camping, preferably between the Muni action and the main
venue. Anybody have any recommendations?

Re: Where are you staying at Unicon

I recommend the Denny Creek campground. It is closer to Snoqualmie Summit than
to North Bend. In fact, you could unicycle to the summit from Denny Creek.

Its funny you should post that, my family was just trying to figure out the same thing last night. The Summit inn does look nice, but it is pretty far from the other venues, most notably the event HQ. We’re also looking at the motels in Snoqualmie Valley. I was hoping to figure out if there is any one place that the MUni crowd is staying.

Jacquie and I have been invited to stay in the somebody’s guest room. But
because we have more familiarity with the area than most, here’s some
advice:

If you can afford it, definitely stay at the Salish Lodge. It’s right down
the street from Mt. Si High School, and it’s one of the nicest places
Jacquie and I have ever stayed. Yes, we stayed there one night when up for
Records Day. But you probably can’t afford it.

My next choice would be the Summit Lodge, where we stayed in '99. I thought
it was very nice. They kept the pool open to a decently late hour, and also
had a spa. Thought it is a bit of a drive down to the valley every day,
there is no traffic. You’ll be right near all the MUni events.

If you’d rather be more in town, my next recommendation would be the Holiday
Inn in Issaquah. Jacquie and I stayed once in the Motel 6 there, and though
it was fine, it’s small and boring. I’m sure the Holiday Inn is a little
nicer.

I don’t know much about the motels in North Bend are very low-end, other
than the fact that Alan Tepper didn’t even want to list them at all in '99.
But I haven’t seen those places up close so I don’t know. I think they are
just small, which limits how many people can stay there.

Check the lodging pages:

The Hyak Lodge also looks nice, though I don’t know the pricing. Expect it
to be a little cheaper, but to have a little less privacy and possibly a
little more noise.

Because people will be spread all around (and because we’ll be staying at a
house), I hope most of the socializing will take place at the convention
venues. Partying, on the other hand, will have to take place off school
grounds There are some nice restaurants in North Bend…

Whatever you do, book your rooms fast. The longer you wait the less choice
you’ll have!

If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay and don’t mind camping, then Issaquah Highlands is the place! :slight_smile: That’s where I am staying and others from TCUC are staying there too. These campgrounds are close to racing events as well as by many of the hotels that many are staying at. They have a large swimming pool, a clubhouse that they claim holds 150 people with a game room, dance floor, fireplace, and kitchen. They also have power hookups for an RV if you’re using one of them.

Their phone number is +1(425)392-2351 and they have campsites set up for up to 10 people per site with two tents/RVs and two vehicles. For the 2 weeks, camping costs a total of about $300.

Re: Where are you staying at Unicon

The Salish Lodge is too expensive for us. I’m going to go ahead and book at
the Summit Lodge. Besides the pool and spa, I also remember they have a nice
bar with pool table.
