I'm looking for a cheap hotel in the Eau Claire area. Basically a bed and a shower. I'll even take another one of those 'No-Tell-Motels' like I stayed at in the Dells when we went after the Gauntlet.

"...my name is Brett and I'd like to check in."

"How many hours do you plan on staying??"

"oh my.... hours???" (no wonder this hotel was so cheap and located right across the street from the Pub)

Any suggestions?

I'd recommend the Green Tree Inn & Suites in downtown Eau Claire. Walking distance to decent restaurants (and a few caches - maybe more since I don't know where the contest caches are). I stayed there after a work Christmas party. I have two co-workers who live(d) there (one during a divorce, the other 3 days/week because he really lives in Minneapolis). I stayed in the main building (the older part, I think). It was clean and cheap ($45). Free wireless, as well.

I had a two-room suite. Sleeper couch/TV/small fridge (maybe a microwave, but I can't remember) in one room. Double bed, tv in the other. Real keys for the door (to give you an idea of age), but the rooms must have been updated because they do not look ancient.

It is also walking distance to some *very* interesting neighborhood bars, if you're in the mood for adventure. The Farmer's Market is nearby (Wed and Thu in season), and outdoor entertainment (at least last year) on Thu nights.

The neighborhood is a mix of the old, run down-ish type of small downtown and a downtown revitalization.

The Eau Claire library is a couple of blocks away, with internet access, in case you aren't carrying your own laptop.

If you do stay here, especially during the week, let me know. I work very nearby and would love to join you for a cache or two or three.

The Green Tree is very convenient to Robin's event location.

We stayed at this place all six times we went up there last year. It's actually a small place right behind the gas station. It was amazingly quiet. The gas station is open all night so if you have the munchies it's perfect. It also has 3 or 4 computers set up inside at their "internet cafe" that you can use free of charge. Oh, yeah... they have really good ice cream too. This is a really new place so everything was nice and clean and the price was right only $40/night
