What a great vacation!!! As a Christmas present, I had bought my husband tickets to the Spring 2007 races at Talladega and was desperately trying to make travel arrangements that were reasonably priced. I did a ton of research on the track and bought tickets sitting high enough to see the back stretch. I booked airfare on AirTran - a direct flight from Wichita to Atlanta. I got an awesome deal on Hotwire for our rental car. I consider myself fortunate that I lucked into a room at the Motel 6 just a couple months before the races. The day of our trip, we got into Atlanta 20 minutes early and our luggage was already in baggage claim when we got there (AirTran...You ROCK!!) We picked up our rental car and headed to Oxford. We got into Oxford at about 1pm, and I was concerned about the check-in time. Clerk at the front desk was awesome! She checked us right in and gave us a quick verbal "tour" of the shops and services around us. Location is great!!! Within a 2 minute walk is a SubWay, an Awesome Ice Cream Parlor (not enough time to sample all 30+ flavors), a Super WalMart (great for all your needs!), McDonalds, another Subshop, Shoe Stores etc. It was GREAT! Motel 6 is right off the highway and only 10 miles from Talladega Speedway. The room was a good size and the beds were firm and comfortable. Maid service was organized and our room looked great everytime we got back, no matter what time of day. We wanted a nice steak dinner our last night in town to cap off the Nextel Cup Race and the young man at the front desk was enthusiastic with helping me find the right place. And his recommendation was outstanding - Longhorn Steakhouse will definitely get my repeat business. I will definitely plan on staying here again. Price was right and location was great!!
Trip home went as flawlessly as the trip out. Check in went smoothly and the flight got us in early again!. Thank you to all mentioned above for a fabulous time at the races!
