I know this has been covered before but I am having trouble finding the info.
What time and day does the York Swap Meet open to public? Is Friday set up only or for sales to public?
Thank you,

Many Motels and facilities are available near the fairgrounds. We generally have used the Days Inn as the Host facility. There is also a Red Roof Inn and others nearby. Go to the York County Tourist Bureau site for others and their locations.

See you in the future as I write about our past

Bob,
There are literally dozens of motels within 10 miles of the fairgrounds. If you have a favorite chain, check their directory. Most are located around the I-83, US 30 intersection which is probably five or six miles or so from the Fairgrounds. We have stayed at the Comfort, but that was mainly because I had a bunch of Choice points and I just got in the habit of staying there.
There's also a Harbor Freight Store in East York:D.

Actually, having been there for the last 2 years, if I thought about it I would have remembered the area has plenty of motels[:I]

I just wanted to make sure I was staying at the one where the Stude guys have the dancing girls I've heard so much about............

Or just show up. I did that one year and ended up with a 2 room suite in the hotel on the hill above the 'Round the Clock Diner for $80 a night. I could have had a party for 50 with plenty of room to spare. I am not sure the place is even open any more.

I may just do that Gary. But I like the idea of having my room set before I get there if possible, so I don't have to waste Stude time on it;)

As a bonus, I could price shop and try to act like I'm a cheapskate so I can fit in with what some Stude people like to brag they are- cheap!:D

If you are still having trouble finding motel space in the land of plenty of motels (York), I have a contact at the fairgrounds who will be more than happy to provide a livestock pen full of fresh straw for Friday and Saturday night at no cost. The one problem is there is no heat, indoor plumbing and one side is open to the outside aur. If interested just let me know

See you in the future as I write about our past

You probably already know, but call the motel directly for your reservation. The central bookings usually add about $10 to the price (and you can sometimes negotiate the price down even more by calling direct).

The Best Western is where lots of Stude folks stay, but my bet is that it is booked up by now. The Comfort Inn is good and usually has rooms available later than some other places, probably because it is a little further away. Still it only takes a few minutes to get to the Fair Grounds from there.

The Days Inn Conf Center on Arsenal Rd may still have some rooms, & they are reasonable. I am paying $45./night. I still need to find out if any spaces are available inside or if someone has some extra room.

The Days Inn Conf Center on Arsenal Rd may still have some rooms, & they are reasonable. I am paying $45./night. I still need to find out if any spaces are available inside or if someone has some extra room.

So then the party's at Bill and Ellen's suite??:D

As long as you don't mind second hand smoke.:D
We discovered a trick, can't smake in the dining room, so we order in and enjoy a nice meal. All welcome.
