RE: Where are you staying at Unicon
> If you’re going to Unicon, where are you planning to stay?
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
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

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
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.

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
