First time to Gingermn this weekend. Can
anyone recommend a hotel nearby? Wife coming
along so a step or two above flophouse would be good.

Thanks

Hotels in South Haven might be a little pricey since this is peak tourist season. The Ramada in Watervliet(25 min) is only a couple years old. Try that.

Not a lot of availability in South Haven either.

I snagged a room in a B&B in Fennville. Closest reasonable I could find. About 15 miles from the track.

Saturday breakfast will likely be missed, but since we don't race until after lunch on Sunday, I figured it would be good to sleep in a bit, relax and have a great meal. Plus this place has desserts and wine in the evening (something the GF will like).

Head over to Kalamazoo...less than 30 minutes & there's everything you'd want off of US131 @ M43. While you're there, find an establishment with Bell's Oberon on tap...it's a great way to wrap a day at the track!

+1 on Kalamazoo. Plus, Bell's Eccentric Cafe is downtown. That alway's takes the edge of the race day.

While you're there, tune into 103.3 KFR...I used to be the morning guy there back in the early '00s.

There's a great area Miata club (KAZOOM) if you need any local support.

Not sure about hotels but don't use the Shell gas station on the left side of the intersection after you get off the freeway.

Watched a patron get really pissed off at the clerk inside insisting that the pumps were off. I checked as I was filling up my 5gal gas jugs for the track and sure enough they were way off.

The next year I stopped in as I figured they had to be fixed at the point and they were still way off.

Now I drive to the BP on the other side of the freeway and fill up. The chinese resturant behind the bp isn't bad either.

Buyer Beware!!
