Frequently Asked Questions - Hotels

Any hotels closer ot the track?

We do our best to not promote any hotels that are over-charging loyal Talladega fans, and we only offer hotels that meet our strict quality standards.  Rest assured that if it's a hotel on our site we've got a fair rate at a quality hotel. 

Can't I call the hotel and get this rate?

Well...No. We leverage the fans buying power to contract with hotels for blocks of rooms, and they guarantee us the best rates in return. The track helps us promote those rates in exchange. Win-Win! 

When will my card be charged?

While a credit or debit card is required to book your reservation, that card is not charged by us when you book. You can cancel up until the dates noted on the booking page without penalty. 


Note: Last minute deals (3 weeks or less before race) are offered by hotels and may have different payment policies.

Is there a lower rate for AARP, Military, etc.?

Our early rates (offered until 3 weeks prior to the race) are guaranteed to be the lowest, including AARP, AAA, and any other online or publicly offered rate. 


Last minute deals will show any available discounts for AAA, AARP and Military. 

How does the shuttle work?

Once you book your hotel reservation, return to the transportation page and book your shuttle tickets. Our partners run luxury motor coach transportation from select hotels. We leave early enough to enjoy a full day at the track (including pit access and hospitality). Buses depart hotels one-time-only, and we leave the track 30-45 minutes after the checkered flag. SEE SHUTTLE FAQ. 

Does shuttle run if it rains?

We’ll still leave the hotel at the scheduled time under the assumption that racing will take place as soon as the big guy upstairs gets the message he needs to hold up the rain. You are welcome to wait on the bus to take shelter. If the race is called at some point your race tickets are good the day the race resumes, but unfortunately we won’t run the buses again (since many folks have to go back home to work). You’ll still have had a heck of a day at Talladega. In case of a rain-out we’ll give you a $5 coupon on your next Talladega Shuttle.
