UPDATE -7/30/2012 - We have decided on a two day / overnight ride weather permitting. Leave Saturday morning, return Sunday evening.

After finding motels rates overpriced in the Johnstown area, We have decided to stay Saturday night in Somerset Pa.. I checked with Days Inn in Somerset and they have rooms available for Saturday night. The rooms are $69.99 per night without any discounts so if you have them, it will be less. The Days Inn is located at 220 waterworks drive, Somerset, pa. The phone # is[masked]. The motel had good reviews with trip advisor.

Feel free to book at other hotels in the Somerset area if your not fond of Days Inn.
