Any MGoBloggers staying at the Red Roof Inn in Dallas?

My Dad and I are staying there, it's not too far from the DFW airport.  We'll be flying in, and won't have a vehicle.  If anyone's looking to carpool to events/the game, of course, we'd be more than happy to chip in for gas and whatnot.

Last time I reserved a rental car online I was quoted one price and when I got to the airport to pick up the car they added on a bunch of fees and taxes. Not sure if I will rent a car in Dallas but if I decide to I am going to wait until we get there and try and negotiate a better price.

September 1st cannot get here soon enough. Been way too long since I've them live, and Cowboys stadium is seriously unbelievable (would rather watch at the Big House obvs).

Parking for Jerryworld is more expensive than any other venue I've ever been to. Expect to pay anywhere from $60-$100 per car. It's quite brutal there unfortunately.

Yeah that was a good move on your part. I'm not going to the game, just offering the info to the people who have not paid early for the stadium parking pass. Sounds like you got a great location though, should be a blast. I'm interested in what the crown split will be between fans, I'd probably guess 60/40 in favor of the good guys but I don't really know how well 'bama fans travel.

I will be getting dropped off by a friend in the area for several reasons. Not the least of which being traffic for 100,000 people. Unlike in A2 on gamedays, there is no shutting down the lanes of oncoming traffic so the entire street can be used to empty out all 100,000 of those people.

Had a room booked at the Knights Inn but someone on this blog told me that that is a very sketchy motel and to not stay there. I got scarred and bailed and now have a room at the Candlewood suites, which had much better reviews.

It's a 1 star motel not a crack house, I've stayed in tons of knights inns and the like over the years on road trips and I've never had a problem, just bring a sleeping bag and don't get in the covers. Obviously, if you have the cash and you want something nicer then go for it.

Yeah I didnt care at first but then I decided that I want to be comfortable and keep the wife happy. It's going to be a mini vacation for us. First time away from our 2 year old. If I was going with the boys I wouldn't care where we stayed.

We are staying at the CandleWood Inn Suites. I am thinking my wife and I will just walk to the game. But, if anyone is staying near us we would pay for a ride to and from the game.
