    Question Hotels in Paducah

    Can anyone recommend hotels in the Paducah area
    for the show next year. I have never been and I have
    6 friends that will be going with me. I will not be renting
    a car so any suggestions will be deeply appreciated.
    Thanks...

    My advice is to book right now because the rooms fill up fast. Some book for the next year as they are checking out this year.

    I was with my friend at Paducah that rebooked for the next year. I called to book a room after I got home for the next year. I was told the policy was not to book a room that far in advance and I would have to call back in Jan. I said well how did my friend get to book a room before she left? The clerk said that was not allowed it didn't happen. I asked to talk to the manager and he said the same thing. Not allowed. I know she rebooked, I was there. I called her and she called the hotel and told them she did rebook, had a confirmation number. And most all that had a room in the town rebooked and she could get a list of names of all that rebooked at the same hotel as she did. The manager still said it wasn't allowed, not their policy. You won't get to book a room until after Jan. and then all of a sudden there are no rooms left, all booked up. I have an email to the corporate office about this rebooking when leaving and no one is allowed to book before Jan but no rooms available as everyone rebooked.
    I love my life!

    I've looked at Expedia and Hotels.com and many are already fully booked.

    I rebooked for next year the same day I checked in. The Comfort Inn Suites was rebooking on Friday for next year.

    I understand what you all are saying, but what about trying another way since there are 7 of you? Try calling some of the local realtors and see if anyone rents out rooms or even a whole house during the time of the quilt show. We know people who do that in other areas to make a bit of $$. Just sayin' hotels might not be the only way to go. Realtors would also know about bus service, etc.

    I've never been but several of my friends make a road trip about every 2 years. They stay in Metropolis across the river from Paducah. If you can't find a spot, that might be a good place to try.

    My sister and I were in Paducah for the quilt show this year, and DH was able to book us one room with two queen size beds ($177) back in Jan or Feb; so I considered us lucky to have gotten ANY hotel room that late for the upcoming quilt show. But I am not sure if I would want to book a whole year in advance (or perhaps, yes, because of 7 or 8 people in your party). My question here is, are you sure of the dates for next year's show? Whatever, what you go through to get here will be worth it in my estimation. Even though the show is huge, and you have a hard time getting around to all the venues and shows and classes, it is well worth attending the Paducah show.

    Just a note in passing, we just happened to catch a show in Louisville, KY sometime last fall, that was a smaller version of Paducah, which I thoroughly enjoyed because of the smaller size. We were able to book late (it might not be such a popular show) and still able to attend a couple of the classes and the vendors were much more accommodating (not so crowded that they couldn't give you some one-on-one time); but they didn't have Ricky Tims either, so that made Paducah my favorite of the two.
    Make every day count for something!

    Many quilters book hotels for just over the river in Metropolis, IL. I would call the hotels and find out if they will be offering transport to the show.
    When there is a quilt show here, most all of the hotels offer round trip transport to the show.

    All the hotels price gouge during the Paducah show. We paid 125 + tax for a total of 146, for a room that normally goes for 65

    Is is kind of tricky.. If you stay somewhere you have first choice for the next year. Most of the hotels, motels, cabins etc will not let you book until after about May 14/15. We have stayed at Kentucky Lake Dam Lodge, they have nice cabins. You may have to stay about 25/30 miles out.. Also at Grand Rivers there is Lighthouse Landing or something like that they have cute cabins right on the lake... Just go online and look up lodging for paducah and surrounding areas... You will love it. We used to go in a group and had a blast. Most places require you to put up at the price of one night to reserve. Some don't
