Current Hotel Status
When I read the AVI thread and noted that the overflows where booked, I ran out and confirmed it. It's partially true: all the doubles are fully booked at both hotels, The Desert Inn and The Inn of Lancaster. However, both hotels have a lot of single rooms:
40 Queen singles
20 King singles
Inn of Lancaster-
When reserving at the DI use this code: 69546 or mention Ani-Magic. They will know what you are talking about.
There is another new option that I arranged today. You heard me mention a motel right next to the AVI, and that you should avoid it. I have to take that back. The motel is under new management. They are also beginng a renovation of all the rooms that will be complete by October.
This is the Town House Motel, and they are offering a 1-4 occupancy rate of $55.00 a night. Their number: 661-942-1195. They have 20 double rooms. They may caution you about the renovation in progress, but they will probably get it done. They are clean rooms and trying to shake the previous image.
