For riders interested in a hotel near the start/finish, there is a Comfort Inn about five miles south of the ride start. Their phone number is (618) 656-4900 or 1 (877) 424 6423, or you can check their web site for rates and availability.
There is also a hotel just two miles from the start, The Country Hearth Their prices are NOT cheap, but it is close.
There is also a small motel (The Innkeeper Motel) in Hamel IL about eight miles north on US-55 and exit 30. Their phone number is (618) 633-2111. It is definitely nothing fancy (one rider says it is a minus one star motel), but it keeps more money in your pocket.
Due to a 24 hour cancellation policy imposed by the hotel, I do not make any group reservations at the hotel. I encourage you to make your own accommodations at the Limited Inn in Vienna. If you wish to share a room/expenses with another rider, I would be happy to share your email address and/or phone number with any other rider wanting the same. If you have any questions about other hotels/motels near Vienna check your favorite sites.
For safety reasons, the 600 KM brevet will be run in stages. An overnight is HIGHLY recommended in Vienna, IL at approximately the 213 mile point. If you are planning on riding this event, you should book your own rooms at the Limited Inn online or by calling 618-658-6300. I am not holding any block of rooms at this time. An overnight in Vienna will require all riders to begin day two no later than 3:00 AM in order to stay ahead of the check point cut off times. Riders are free to leave earlier.
