             With motel prices on the rise, it's totally possible to find a very nice cabin to rent in Arnold BY OWNER for around the same price. Check out www.airbnb/Arnold, CA (best) or www.VRBO/Arnold, CA  (Vacation Rentals By Owner.) We found cabins from $85/night ~ Scroll

the whole site; we found the cheapest on page 5! You can email the owners to see if they can negotiate a bit - especially if they know it's a working weekend for you; this also worked for us.

Share with another vendor; make a vacation out of it! 

             But, if you don't want to bring you own linens, then continue below......


             Motel prices vary quite a bit between Arnold, Murphys, & Angels Camp - with Arnold &

Murphys being higher, so you may want to make the short drive to Angels Camp (20 minutes)

for less expensive lodging. We've listed a few below, but for more call the Calaveras County Visitors's Center:  209 - 736 - 0049


             Prices are approximate; be sure to ask about any AAA or AARP discounts, as well as cancellation fees & booking deposits (DON'T make your reservation till AFTER you've been 

accepted into the fair)  Sometimes can be cheaper for Angels Camp motels, but be sure to call the motel directly to compare.


             Whatever you decide - BOOK EARLY for the best rates!
