It is best to call the hotel direct at the numbers listed below in order to secure the best rates. Registration should not be put off. ALL HOTELS IN THE AREA BOOK UP FAST. SIGN UP TODAY!

RATES: Because of scheduling, rooms must be reserved in pre-arranged groups of Sunday through Friday morning (for full week students), Friday night only, Saturday night only or both Friday/Saturday night combinations. Regardless of how many nights the cost will be $65 per night plus 7% tax.
