Hotel prices in Austin for this year's US Grand Prix are now higher than equivalent rates in Monaco, suggest reports.

After reading this, i promptly went to the motel 6 website and booked 4 days over race weekend in San Marcos TX for under $200 total. Glad I did before it was all booked. It's less than 30 miles from the track and I'll get to see F1 on a budget!

Pretty shameful cash grab. I would definitely drive, rather than stay nearby, if that were the case. The car rental would be cheaper than paying the obscene rates. Hope nobody uses these hotels at those rates and they learn not to do this kind of opportunistic wallet-robbing. Reflects poorly on Austin and ensures most fans will not stay there, but neighboring cities. Hope it improves...I'm going to try and go, next year.
