the double nite requirement is why I stay in Appleton or Oshkosh.


I'd probably look into that as well. The last time I was in GB for a game was the Sunday night game against the vikings a few years ago. I had a free room for Saturday and Sunday nights (to go along with free game tickets and tailgate party at BFs steakhouse) so I couldn't complain.

The two night requirement is just something they do because they can. I think it's kind of cheesy (no pun intended) but if people put up with it I guess more power to them. Although I think its kind of like charging $50.00 for a $15.00 sheet pf plywood before the hurricane arrives or $8.00 for gallon of gas after the airplanes hit.

yep along with the jacked up room prices for the weekends there is a home game.

That's the point. They do it because they can do it. The first thing I do once the schedule is released in April is to check the most suitable game(s) for me and reserve a hotel room near Lambeau right away. If you wait until June/July it's pretty much impossible to get a room in that area. People just pay what they have to pay, even if they don't really want to, so you have to be one of the first to pay what you don't want to pay [grin1] I guess you find an even cheaper one later on, but if you're without a car, the gameday price for cabs levels everything up.

But selling the rooms completely overpriced is not Green Bay specific. To get a room in Munich at Oktoberfest time will cost you twice tothree times of the normal rate as well. Offer and demand determine the price ;) Not nice to see, but reality is nice very seldom.

It's capitalism. Demand outstrips supply in an area where supply is normally not an issue, thus price (and value) skyrockets.
