Well, the Knights IS an old-school motor lodge. Its got charm, but its no Ritz-Carlton. From the rooms I saw (and the grounds) it was, however, VERY clean. The staff was really friendly and they dont mind us doing the Round Robin thing on Friday, with TWO live bands!!!

Its DEFINATELY better than the Super8 from last year if that helps... It averaged 3.5 (of 5) on tripadvisor.

Here's some pics!! Be sure to book for friday night too!!



pool area...


A double room...



We'll see ya on the bus!

And the Super 8 last year wasn't bad. I've stayed in WAY worse!

Sounds good. Thanks for the feedback. I will be booking for Friday and Saturday night. I know the rates on their website were between $79 + $89.

Hey folks!!

We've finally nailed down Sunday's part of the NETT.

I've spoken with the Essex Peabody Museum in Salem (about 15 minutes away from our hotel) and they are going to run a pair of customized tours for us.

One featuring their Oceanic art collection, and the second on Maori tattoos (an exhibit that happens to be there at the time of our tour).

We'll have to split into two groups, but each group will do BOTH tours in opposite order.

The Tours start at 1pm sharp!!! And there is NO SUPPLIED TRANSPORTATION.

Transportation is on you guys. There will be NO BUS. You'll have to drive, or carpool, hitch-hike, walk, skateboard....just get there somehow, cause its gonna be cool!!

Also, the admission for the Peabody is $15/ea.

now, since checkout is 11am, we're also working on a place (or two) to meet up for hangover brunch on the way to Salem. More to come on that front soon.

If you're interested in the Museum side trip, please PM or email me. I'd like to give them a tenative headcount.

Still more surprises to come...

We'll see ya on the bus.

It's OK JP, Sunday's about greasy breakfast and culcha. Lots of fancy culcha.

We're definitely up for greasy breakfast on Sunday. Not sure about the culcha yet, considering CaptainQ's rapidly dwindling vacation days. We might just need to hightail it home, but we'll see.

If it helps anyone plan, the tours are only about 45 mins each...add a little time to peruse on your own...you'll be out by 3pm.

If you havent been to the PEM, this is a great opportunity to see some amazing Oceanic art, and hear some people who really know their stuff speak about it.

They're throwing us all out of the hotel at 11....what else are you gonna do? Me? Im gonna get educated....and full of greasy hangover food.

Okay, that's different! I'll confer with the Captain, but this sounds doable!

Me too!!! I'm having my iron stomach installed in August just for the NETT.

Jon - leave that cop attracting Aloha shirt at home this time. I don't want to get pulled over again!
