Rooms are "1 bedrrom suites" with 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa. They have a small frig & microwave. The rooms are really a cross between a studio suite & a 1 bedroom, as they have a decorative window between the living & sleeping areas. The hotel has a full restaurant/bar in the lobby. Our block rate is $129 including a full breakfast. 

PLEASE MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Reservations can be cancelled up to 24 hours prior to check in.  But they cannot create more rooms.  The hotel we stayed at least year did not have approriate accomadations left for us.  Town will book up fast.  So if your swimmer(s) has made a State cut or you think he/she may, please book your room. Our block will be help until February 10th only. 

Links to Best Times on the Website
In the interest of being ever-green, the coaches no longer print out swimmers' best times and send them home in folders. But, you can find your best times on the Meets page, by clicking on the link for either Yards or Meters and paging down until you find your swimmer.

Don't forget to check out the Photo Gallery Thanks to our super photographer, Caryn Pearson, wonderful memories are saved  for you.  All you need to do is go to the photo tab on our website & click on the name of the meet in order to be brought right to the shutterfly site with your kids pics.
