I called Pine Acres Lodge again this afternoon.
They are still not accepting reservations for April.
What is going on here, is that allot of new road construction is occuring in the area and Pine Acres management have bid on supplying rooms for the road crews. They still have not heard back regarding their bid, so are keeping the rooms available in case they win the proposal.
The desk clerk told me they do not know when they will hear back from the construction company and suggested that I go ahead and make alternative arrangements at another hotel.
Also, there is a Storytelling convention going on the same weekend and apparently this is a very big deal in North Carolina and people are streaming in from all over.
So, to ensure you have a room in Laurinburg for the April Maxton, I recommend you secure rooms at one of the other hotels in the area. Other than the Pine Acres Lodge, I have only stayed at the Clinton, which was nice.
Other racers have said the Jameson is nice but put a $500 hold against your credit card (which affects your available credit line) and it takes 2 weeks to come off.
Also, I have heard from quite a few to steer clear of the Scotland Inn (big issues there).Contact information for some of the motels in the Laurinburg/Maxton area.
