Host Hotels – Book Now!

I’m pleased to announce that all of the rooms are lined up for the Sea-to-Sea safari. My goal was to book hotels with at least three stars and the best online reviews for that category, while keeping the rooms at $70- or less, not including taxes.  This was mostly accomplished.  However, it turned out to be a bit of a challenge, given some of the cities we’re staying in . . . like San Diego, Nashville, and of all places, Ruidoso Downs, NM (lowest price: $139- a night for the Comfort Inn on a Friday night!) 

Some considerations . . . 

All of the rooms booked include double queen beds.  If you want a room to yourself that’s fine, but I would strongly suggest doubling up to help cut some of the travelling costs. If you’re a solo driver and would like to share a room, please send an email to c2csafari@gmail.com and I’ll forward your email to everyone on the Sea-to-Sea Rides listing.

If the room block runs out, please let me know and I’ll go back in and renegotiate.  I had to guess within 2 rooms how many would actually be booked or be charged for the two unused rooms each night. So, I may have been too conservative. However, I think the hotels will be fine extending the block once we exceed the 12 rooms I’ve booked. All hotels include a breakfast buffet in the morning as part of the rate.

Option “B” – No one is locked into staying at any of these. This is where each days run will end and then start again, but if you’d like to book your own accommodations at another hotel in the area, it is perfectly fine to do so. I realize everyone has their own budget and hotel comfort level.

Please look at the hotels listed below, grab your credit card and make your reservations.  There is a two to four week window (depending on hotel) where we must have the rooms reserved or we’ll lose them. So, getting them filled quickly is important.
