The hotel we're at is 90% PSA pilots and I'm pretty sure they use the same place for every class- the staff is very airline-oriented and are bending over backward for us. They have shuttles taking us to/from class and to/from sims. They will have you provide them your schedule and work around getting you there. They know all about Sheppard, will help you print logbooks, etc. So it's not like any issue you have isn't something they haven't already dealt with. The rooms are single-occupancy and VERY nice. Turn-down service every day, stovetop kitchenette with full-size fridge and washer. Probably the nicest hotel I've been provided in the last 1.5 years of flying crappy Part 91/135 flying. It's a few minutes from the sims and surrounded by restaurants and stores, so everything is in walking distance. Just don't forget any documents (passport, logbooks, etc) or you'll be FedEx Overnighting stuff from home $$$. I highly recommend starting a WhatsApp/Messenger group with your class so everyone can share ideas/study/plan food/social outings. Most people in CTP will be in the same indoc class as well.

I haven't made it to indoc yet but I'm hoping the hotels provided are the same with a kitchenette- I like to cook and meal prep. Most of us are planning on driving to Dayton. 4-5 weeks without a car would straight up suck.

Is it 4-5 weeks straight or is it broken up. I heard some were broken up

Had a few friends go through indoc recently. Two were in the same class and one stayed at the Residence Inn, with the other guy bumped to SpringHill Suites (used for overflow); there's also a Fairfield which seems to have been brought into the rotation recently and it's also the F/A training hotel. (I think the RI and FI are crew overnight hotels as well.) There are 15-20 restaurants within walking/short drive distance, plus a Walmart, Sam's Club, and a bunch of other various retail stores. If somebody has a car, the USAF Museum is probably a 15 minute drive and makes for a nice day trip.

I've stayed at both for business and they're both nice in their own ways; RI was recently updated, but the rooms are nice, while the Fairfield is brand new (I watched it being built from the RI in August 2020).
