Planning Issues Willow Springs Oct 2016

Recommended Posts

I am traveling from Austria to Willow Springs to Attend CSS and Code Race and have some issues about traveling because I haven't been to California before.

 

I Will travel to LAX Airpot.

How do you travel from the Airport to the Hotel/Motel near the racetrack?

Which Motel/Hotel do you spend your night?

How much would the fee be for the travel (Airport - Racetrack)?

Do i have anything else to consider?

 

Maybe someone is traveling from near LAX to CSS who can share that ride?

 

Thanks for the sharing of your opinions :)

Roland,

 

I did the same trip as you, just back in 2012. I hired a rental car in the LAX airport. It takes a couple of hours to drive up there (85-95miles one-way).

I was recommended (and used) the same Motel in Lancaster that the CSS team was using. Ask the office for suggestions.

I would highly recommend the rental car, getting to the track from LAX isn't a overly complicated affair, just a couple of freeways, but depending on the Time of day LA traffic can make the drive a lengthy one. You also need to keep in mind getting from the hotel to the track each day, and if you want to go out for dinner in the evening. A low end rental car will be less $$ than all the taxi or shuttle costs.

 

There are several options for lodging in Lancaster I believe your information/confirmation email, which you may not have received just yet, will include some lodging options and possibly some codes for a discount.

 

There is a option in Rosamond, but its a pretty crappy one, however if your on a really tight budget and don't mine a dive hotel its there. Last time I checked it was about half the cost of hotels in Lancaster.

I agree with all said above except I would NOT recommend staying in Rosamond, we have had students experience car break ins at that place plus it's just not very nice.

 

Comfort Inn or the Holiday Inn Express in Lancaster are better.

The office will send you contact info for the hotels...I think we used a Hampton Inn recently, and that was pretty good. As Hotfoot said, stay away from the hotel in Rosamond.
