Accommodations:
Accommodations: Two Choices we suggest, with special rates for Waredaca: First is the Residence Inn. It’s more expensive ($99/night) than the Comfort Inn ($84) but is a nicer property and offers more of an apartment feel than hotel room. The Comfort Inn is more the standard hotel room type experience but quite satisfactory. They both allow pets and have good parking for large trucks and trailers. The Residence Inn is slightly farther away but has more entertainment and restaurant selections nearby. Ask for special horse trial rates for Waredaca available for advanced reservations : Comfort Inn Shady Grove, 16216 Frederick Road, Gaithersburg, MD 20877, (301) 330-0023 or toll free (888) 605-9100 for reservations.
