Posted by  admin  Jun 8, 2014

Hello Everyone, Ray Arrona here,

I have made my personal reservations at the Travel Lodge for our 50th Reunion - I will be arriving on Friday October 17 for the optional "one day early" (More information to follow via a registration form and on this web site) The rooms are among the nicest in the Globe/Miami area. The Apache Gold Casino hotel is completed booked for a "Bike Week-end" that week end.


Travel LodgeThe Travel Lodge gave us their best rate - even better than the AARP rate - All beds there are Queen size - Rooms with one queen bed are $99.99 + tax ($111.59 total/night) and the rooms with 2 queen beds are $116.99 + tax ($130.50) - I understand that there are 38 rooms currently available - I made my reservations with a credit card and also my phone number. I asked for the Travelodge to send me my confirmation via email which I received shortly after they were made.
