This year we have one hotel within walking distance (2 blocks) called the Residence Inn by Marriott. It is a 100 room hotel that will sell out quickly, so please reserve early! The next nearest is 2 miles away; the Holiday Inn Express. Again, limited space! There are many hotels on HWY 183 off HWY 620 (approximately 5 miles from the DI) for those wanting more options.
