Windward Farm, Washougal, WA- our work in progress, our money pit, our home!
Spruce Meadows--need hotel reccomendations, please!
My trainer and a group from our barn will be heading up to Spruce to spectate in the fall--they need a good hotel (not too much $$ but not a dive, either) that is convenient to the show. Anyone have recommendations? They are trying to nail down plans now, before we get busy with our own show season.
The super 8 and the Wingate are the closest but book up very quickly. We lucked out one year and found a house to rent for the week in one of the complex's nearby, unfortunately my friend organized that so I'm not sure how we did it. Probably any hotel on the south side should be close enough, since you guys are only spectating you won't have to be there at 5am anyways! Have fun, it really is the most amazing show.
Ya, the super 8 (and wingate) is really close and it's a decent place with a pool w/ waterslide. Right near to a lot of shopping (grocery, food places, walmart, canadian tire) and movie theatre, right near Horselife (nice horse store). If you mean to watch the Masters (the only big show there in the fall) I would definitely book it asap as that is the biggest show there of the year and it will fill up quick.
Our group has stayed at the Holiday Inn Express when we go for the summer shows. Easy drive to Spruce, shopping/restaurants around it, nice breakfast! I have always been treated well by the staff there & we stay for several weeks at a time so it's a little home away from home.
