Where to Stay at Mighty Uke Day

The official Mighty Uke Day 8 hotel will again be the Quality Inn University. It’s just a few miles away from all the festivities and has a perfect room we can use for late night jamming. They are offering us a special Mighty Uke Day rate of $74 + taxes for a standard room, call (517) 351-1440 for a reservation and tell them you’re with Mighty Uke Day. The hotel is located at 3121 East Grand River, here’s a map from there to Sir Pizza. (Rooms will be held until April 10, make your reservation by then to guarantee the special rate.)
