Santa Rosa Marathon Sunday Aug 23, 6am start time

Our daughter just signed up for the Santa Rosa Marathon, starting at 6am on Sunday morning, August 23. When we go to the Wine Country we usually stay in Glen Ellen at the Jack London Lodge. All of the hotels in Santa Rosa are very pricey for that weekend and many are already sold out. Since the race starts so early we don't want to be too far away from the start in Juilliard Park, downtown Santa Rosa. Any suggestions appreciated!

Wow. There really aren't any options. I just went to one of the major hotel sites and the only ones available are not the greatest hotels in our area. I wouldn't feel comfortable booking any of the hotels left (SR, Rohnert Park, Petaluma). If you can come up on a Friday, have you checked any of the vacation home/rental sites (I noticed many have 2 night min. on the weekends). Yeah, the last thing you want to do is have to still travel up to a half hour to get to downtown SR for a 6am run. Sorry.

Thanks Eric for looking. We ended up booking the

Rodeway Inn Wine Country, Rohnert Park

2 dbl beds $149, total with tax $170 (canx by 8/21)

for just Saturday night.

I know it is not ideal.

Unfortunately, due to time restraints we can only stay Saturday night.

One small motel I spoke with in Santa Rosa advised to check back closer

to the weekend for possible cancellations. He said the Fair is also going

on, making it for a very busy weekend.

Good luck. The fair ends early August. There is an accordion festival in Cotati that weekend. I guess that's more popular than I ever thought, plus the typical wine country tourists. Hope your daughter does well.

Thanks Eric. That's funny about the accordion festival - we may just have to check that out!
