Gee, that was harder than it should have been. I kept holding out for something else but at least it’s a bed! We have six rooms blocked as the Lone Star BMW riders. Let's try that.
$115.55 but with AAA or AARP she said it could be $86.66 plus tax

Sunday, March 27th
Destin, FL
338 Miles
We'll head south to catch hwy 90 and follow the coast all the way down to the ferry south of Mobile. After crossing the ferry, we'll ease over to the Destin area. Lunch will be along the way and supper will be in Fort Walton Beach/Destin. A Charlie Smith recommendation, "Fellers, I can heartily recommend Dewey Destins, either location, for fresh seafood, and the Key lime pie at the Donut Hole is the best. Actually the key lime pie at deweys is good as well, so I recommend having both!"

Also, when calling the Holiday Inn Resort FWB, the rate was $152 non-beach which is a 10% discount supposedly; they are holding 6 rooms under “Lonestar BMW.” So, the best rate is the Advance Purchase (non-refundable) online $136 or discount rate of $144 which the guy at the desk can’t do?

A nice comfortable start depending on the consensus of the group. If Joy gets to Greenville early enough to pull on a slot machine, all the better.
