However, very good rates are available: we suggest

The Comfort Inn is about 1.5 kms North from the Marriott Hotel on Dixon Road (called Airport Road for the Comfort Inn).  Please book through a web application like Hotels.com

Has a free Airport Shuttle and you could take a bus along Airport Road the Marriott Hotel or a cheap taxi ride on Tuesday.

 

Please book rooms at the Comfort Inn and the Parry Sound Inn and Suites (was Microtel Inn) (group code to come soon) early because both fill up.  Please call the hotel directly now – there are rooms but not on the web.  The Trapper Inn and other smaller hotels and B & B also fill up. Please see the Hotels page for links.

Thank you to our sponsors.
