The search has begun for guest hotels!!  We haven’t exactly set a price point, but we’re looking at several options (and several price ranges) for our guests to choose from.  So far, we have about 14 people confirmed for attendance, but there are still several responses yet to be returned.  We’re extremely surprised at the number, especially this early in the game, but we’d like to get some accommodations nailed down so when the time comes, everyone coming will have a few options.  Take a look, and let me know what you think…

The Best Western Scores Hotel…it’s not at all what you think of when you think of Best Western, but it’s nice nonetheless.  We’ve heard good things about this hotel from people who have traveled to St. Andrews.  And my new trusty companion, TripAdvisor has a traveler rating of 3.5 (thanks, Am!!)

Next is the Macdonald Rusacks Hotel.  We looked at this hotel during our initial search of a reception venue and we were definitely impressed.  I would suggest that this hotel is about one notch down from The Old Course Hotel.  They are self-described as “a sand wedge from the 18th hole”.  The accommodations are much more expensive as compared to The Scores Hotel, but they deal more with luxury than efficiency!

Some more economical options include two different Ogston’s Hotels: North Street and PilmourWendy describes them as “quite a lively place” so it may be an option for the younger crowd.  Both of these hotels have mixed reviews from TripAdvisor, but like I said, it’s more economical – and when you’re saving money, you really can’t complain!!
