Knoxville, Tennessee - Travelodge West Knoxville

This Travelodge is one of our favorites! - We love it! It's nothing more than a truck stop motel and is definitely not for most! It's just off I-40, so commuters who require nothing more than a place to sleep might find this one useful. To check in and get your room key, you must register at the adjacent gas station mini-mart! You'd probably be better off not bringing the family!

Evanston, Wyoming - Super 8 Evanston

This hotel is located in the town of Evanston, right in the southwest corner of the state on the Utah border. Salt Lake City is just one hour to the west on Interstate 80. This is a good base for exploring southern Wyoming attractions such as Flaming Gorge NRA, or even as a pit stop en route to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, just three hours north of here.

2 Double Beds (S/NS): $50.99 Orbitz, $59.99 Super8.com
1 King Bed (S) $55.24 Orbitz, $64.99 Super8.com

This BRG works because Super 8 only lists nonrefundable options for its regular King rooms - not any of the aforementioned ones.

Special Comments: Property is located just off Interstate 80 at Exit 3, 80 miles east of Salt Lake City, Utah. The surrounding area has numerous restaurants, convenience stores and gas stations (and isn't that what we're all looking for these days?). A Superstart breakfast (ie. carbs and milk - if you're lucky - water if not) is provided each morning. Poor reviews on Tripadvisor (who would've guessed?).

BRG Department Closed due to Inclement Weather

I was sitting in Washington Dulles International a few hours ago, and a news story caught my eye: BLIZZARD ACROSS THE DAKOTAS.

I knew what this likely meant - the BRG department is closed (and we've confirmed this - they're not working today).

Now, of course, any good company will honor the claims submitted on today 3/31 as per their guarantee - so don't sweat it. Just, don't expect any replies today.

Consider the blizzard penance for their cancelling the BRG program. Works for me. :D

Get in those claims everyone, we have many more opp's on the way!

More BRGs To Come!

Just to let you know, we will be posting more throughout the day! We're going on the assumption that free nights will be granted as long as a claim is submitted within today's date of 3/31.

San Bruno, California (SFO area) - Ramada Limited San Francisco Airport

Here's a hotel that kind of hides itself from visibility on Kayak - unless you search specifically for "San Bruno" this one will not appear under a San Francisco search. But, we've located it for your booking pleasure. It has wide availability through Summer 2009 and beyond. This one is easily visible by searching Kayak for "San Bruno, CA".

Hotel Address: 500 El Camino Real, San Bruno, CA 94066 US

Competitor Website:

Expedia.com
or
http://www.hotels.com


Sample Date: August 10, 2009 (and most others in summer 2009).
Click here to check your specific dates.

Occupancy: 2 Persons

Room Details: Two Queens Room

Rate variation: $79.40 Expedia, $99.00 Ramada

Special Comments: This hotel is located just two miles from SFO Airport, in downtown San Bruno. It's located right on El Camino Real, with plenty of restaurants and nightlife nearby. The Rib Shack is a local favorite, which I highly recommend. This is an indoor corridor hotel, and a continental breakfast is served daily. Tripadvisor reviews are quite scary, but I have come not to expect much from ANY Wyndham hotel in the greater San Francisco area.
