    Phil, Try the hotel next door to Cody's restaurant. When you go West to route l9 turn right (south) a mile and half or 2 and you'll see Cody's on the right side of the road. I don't remember the name of the hotel. If you like PM me and I'll give you Gary's # if you like. Gary and Mike just left there as they were at the Southern Grand. I stayed behind. Good luck this week. Break-em all. Jeff

    There is a brand new Resident's Inn along 589 (Veteran's Expressway) that is 15 minutes away and no traffic or road construction between it and the Dollar. They usually serve a full hot breakfast and on some nights, a businessman's lite supper. I would also consider Oldsmar, they have several good hotels and you can get to the Dollar by way of Racetrack Road, instead of Tarpons Springs Rd. If you do decide to stay at the Knights Inn, use Tampa Road to Forrest Lakes to Racetrack and come in that way, it is a lot faster during peak travel hours.

    Several places in Oldsmar, last trip we stayed at the La Quntia (sp) in Clearwater bt the airport. Very clean and easy drive. Our only problem was John Holms and Seka were in the next room. Oh well, try Cheaprooms.com. Jake

    Phil,

    I agree with Jeff - I stayed at the Knights Inn last year and found it to be very clean, quiet, and economical. Jim

    shotgunpeople We didn't make it down this year. We stayed the last few years at Quails Run RV Resort (brand new pads put in, doubles the size of it by now and priced right), its listed under Westley Chapel and about 35 minutes drive to the Dollar. Really nice clean park to stay. Look under RV Reviews Westley Chapel. We tried the rv parks in Tarpon Springs and they weren't the best, also stayed at one in Lutz not the best either.

    Hope this helps
    Andy

    Start checking now and you could get an RV spot on the gun club grounds.
