The nightly room rate is $85 for Single or Double occupancy, $92 for Triple or Quad.  There is an additional charge of 12.6% tax. Parking is offered at $5 per day.  The discounted room block is available at these rates until August 1.  After August 1, any remaining rooms will be released and reservations will be accepted on a space-available basis at their usual rate of $119 per night.

To make a reservation, call the hotel at (800) 366-3684, and be sure to identify yourself as part of the “Castle Rock Genealogical Society.”  All reservations must be guaranteed with a credit card or first night’s deposit.
