I've been at the 6 for raider games. Not the Plaza, but I only sleep there so its ok. Plus, its F-ing luxury compared to the trailerpark! lol



For those who want a real vacation and are not staying at the Crowne Plaza, we have a special rate up the street at the very nice resort hotel The Handlery. This discounted rate ends a week from tomorrow - Wednesday, June 29

http://www.tikioasis.com/2011/hotelbooking/handlery/

http://www.handlery.com/

or if you want budget hotel that is not totally lame (yes, that's you Motel 6)
We recommend the vintage Kings Inn complete with Mexican Restaurant and Waffle Spot diner
http://www.tikioasis.com/2011/hotelbooking/kingsinn/

Tiki Oasis guests get $89 rate with two free margaritas for two or more night stay!!

Motel 6 is $86.39

After factoring in the margaritas you are saving money by going to a BETTER hotel - Kings Inn!?!




How do you get the $89 rate at kings Inn? I can't see where you input the voucher code...

I made reservations for the King's Inn and the manager's rate popped up for me and it was on average a better rate that the Oasis rate . . . that was a few weeks ago.

I love the Kings Inn! The staff is always nice and The Waffle place is great for morning hang over breakfasts. I'll have you know that a few celebrities have stayed there along side me over the years. I will not say who because it might ruin their image but for instance, a "hospital show" actor, with their entourage, was there last year.

Is this supposed to be a tip or is it a complaint?

If the Manager's Rate was cheaper you should use it. I book my rate in December the year before the event. Tiki Oasis is at the end of summer which is peak season. A lot can happen in the 6 - 8 months leading up to Tiki Oasis but at the time that I book my group it is the best rate they offer for that weekend.
I don't own the hotel! I can't control the rates.
The hotel game is complex, just like airline tickets. Rates vary based on supply and demand.
Right now the Manager's Rate is $101
But if you use the Tiki Oasis rate you get two free margaritas at their restaurant!

If you just want the cheapest rate go to Motel 6
The rate there was $86 for Fri/Sat a few weeks ago but somehow now it has dropped to $75
Not that I would stay in that dump, but if you are looking for the cheapest possible roof over your head go for it.

I cannot in good conscience recommend low quality hotels to my guests.

Mea culpa, it was not a complaint. I was pointing out that the Manager's rate was even better. Color me happy all the way around!

For me, the Kings inn website is saying $108 per night for Fri-Mon - can't see how to get the Oasis rate.
And the Motel 6 is saying $105. Both from their direct hotel websites.
Any tips on what i'm doing wrong here?

Don't know about hotel rates, don't know about a lot of things. What I also don't know is WHO'S GOING? Lets get a role call happening! Lets get a room crawl started! Lets get ready to see all the great friends, new and old that some of us only see once a year! Lets make introductions and connections with all the wonderful people, bands and artists that Tiki Oasis gathers to help keep our Tiki community on a roll! I for one, am really excited about the bands this year. I also think we should all wear name-tags. Since my memory can be a little hazy I don't always remember everything and everyone I've met or spoke with. Come up and say ALOHA! This event is one of very few that gives us all an opportunity to celebrate the Tiki-Geek in us all.
I'll start.
My family and I are IN!!!
Anybody?

Matt, I'm all for the Tiki Central Name Tags then I don't to make up crazy shirts for myself



Maybe one of the resident TC graphic artists can post a name tag image for us to print!

I am always there to see the bands.
it always puzzles me when people say
" Oh I was at room party's and missed all of the bands"

you can drink anytime, and don't you wanna remember something,
especially since ya paid for it?

Sometimes, missing a band is intentional.

To each his own. If people want to drink with friends, have good conversation and skip the bands, more power to them. I fluctuate between the two. Not in the mood for a particular sound? Unlimited options are available. BTD, you are a hardcore music guy. Of course you would rather see the bands. I mentioned being excited to see the bands earlier, true, but honestly I'm just excited that Tiki Oasis is close and I get to experience it again.
Cool shirt Mike. Anyone want to take on the name-tag idea?

So looking forward to enjoying myself with all the awesome DJs that are lined up as background music. So much talent at one event--can't top that list for sure!

Will be awesome to see Big Sandy as well--esp since Robert (the lead singer) will be sure to be hitting some room parties during the weekend. He's a great guy whose fun to party with.

Can't wait!

It used to be that the Crawl Cards doubled as a name tag.

Are there going to be Crawl Cards this year?

...Shelley? ...Dr. Shocker?
