I have registered for the Rock'n Roll 1/2 Marathon in Va Beach Labor Day weekend and am looking for a hotel. Trying to avoid paying $1000 for the 3 night minimum and called RCI points, of which I am a member. The only availability they have are hotel stays at Ramada Limited (good location for the race but the reviews make it sound like a dump!), HoJo Express (Shore Drive and better reviews but not great) and Coutryard by Marriott (Greenwich -which if I remember correctly is out near Chesapeake). What's your advice as I don't want to stay in a complete dump but also don't want to have to travel 30 minutes for a 7am race.
