KSO--Where to Stay

It's that time of year again...time to plan our trip to the Krystal Square Off on September 27th in Chattanooga! We've been searching the internet for a place to stay during this weekend of fun, and since we've looked up all of this info, we thought it might be helpful to share it with some of ya'll too.

After two years of being official fans/now veterans of the KSO, we have decided that the best places to stay are downtown. Granted, we have only stayed downtown but why change a good thing? All of the places we have listed below are within walking distance to all of the downtown excitement and are easily accessible on the free city shuttle.

The rates are for 2 nights: Saturday Night 9/26 & Sunday Night 9/27
1 room with 2 beds unless otherwise noted, including taxes. We've included the links to all of the hotel websites--you also might want to check out expedia, travelocity, or some other discount websites. Some hotels had packages, government/military/AAA/other rates, but here is a basic run-down:

Days Inn Rivergate:
Downtown, within walking distance to all downtown things, free tram-stop right in front of hotel, only budget hotel with a good location

While in Jacksonville at the qualifying at Jacksonville Landing, I'll be staying at the Wyndham Riverwalk which is across the river from the Jacksonville Landing. This is the Jacksonville Jaguars Offical Hotel and we enjoy staying here when we compete in Jacksonville. I can also travel by boat right up to the stage. Our Suite is listed at over $400 but being a celebrity helped get us another comp for our stay.
