Booked at trip to MB for me and my Mom, May 18-25 at Best Western Carolinian. I realized this was the end of Bike week when I booked it but didn't realize there was another one Memorial Day weekend (Atlantic Beach). My 2 main concerns are safety and traffic. I cannot change the flight/car without large fee but can cancel the hotel if need be. Was wondering if it would be best to see the boardwalk and everything around the resort by May 23 and use the rental car May 23-25 to sight see elsewhere to get away from crowds or should we do it the other way around and stay put at the hotel during the bike weekend and not even try to drive? Would prefer to stay at the Carolinian and not change resorts but will if someone strongly suggested otherwise. I know there is a walk from the parking garage to the hotel. Has anyone stayed here during the bike events and had any problems? I know we will see things, I have been to, and enjoyed, bike weeks before and know what to expect in that regard. I am most concerned about the criminal element. If it was just me traveling, I wouldn't be so concerned. Is the area around this hotel safe and is the beach safe to walk during the Memorial Day weekend bike fest? I would also like to know if there is a fast way to the airport on Sunday, 5/25, will all the traffic? We need to be there by 11:00am. Thank you.
