If you're old like me, you probably can remember. So, there is an event in Sacramento (not car related) I usually go to every year, and I stay at the same Motel 6. Early last week I called to make a reservation: one room, one night. The lady starts out by telling me that there are a lot of events going on in the Sacramento on this weekend -- in other words, I better sit down. The price was $200 + tax and fees. WTF? I looked at other hotel sites, and this was one of the cheapest! I took it. I showed up last night to check in, and there was some other poor guy, trying to get the last room available. The clerk told him $324, and he just walked out. They're probably not willing to change the name to Motel 200 or Motel 300.
