Does anyone know of any other "official" Nekocon hotels and when they'll be posted? I just want to keep my options open.

Only one I know of is Holiday Inn Chesapeake, which is where we're planning on staying...

Yeah, we'll probably stay there too. I was just wondering in case they ran out of rooms before I got a chance to make reservations, but I think we made them.

Try orbitz.com for some cheaper motels nearby. I just got a room at the Red Roof Inn with 2 beds for about $44 a night, and the location is right next door! :) Since I'm coming from CA, I think this time since the RRI is sooo close rather than usually staying at the con hotel. Even though the address is but a single digit between both hotels, hopefully the walk will be only a matter of seconds.. :thumbsup: I'll need it to be if I'm to go back n' forth each time to change camera batteries!!

Being that I work for Canon nearby, I pass by the place every day.
There's a place called "Best Value Inn and Suites" (formally Wellesley Inn and Suites) that's just as much a walk as the Holiday Inn. The Red Roof, you have to walk across the street, but the traffic is not bad. The Hampton Inn is the furthest walk from the Conferance Center, but it is not a bad walk ... not a whole lot of car traffic to worry about.
There is a new hotel under construction there but I'm not sure when they're going to finish.

does anyone know anything about the Red Roof Inn? are the rooms ok?
i want to get a bigger room for parties, but i don't know if everyone in my room will be ok with the higher cost. if RRI is ok, i might get two rooms there and use one for parties.

eureboeat king- is the address for the red roof inn 196 Ballard Court
Virginia Beach, VA 23462? I'm wondering b/c i went to orbitz and checked the location of the con ctr and the hotel on mapquest and it said it was like 9 miles away (i know mapquest could be wrong but i don't want to book the wrong hotel) if you could check to see what the address is and post it that would be much appreciated thank you! ^_^

Katiluna: The Red Roof I booked is the Red Roof Inn Chesapeake, VA.. The address is 724 Woodlake Drive, (I-64 at Greenbrier Parkway, Exit #289-A) Chesapeake, VA 23320. The Holiday Inn, the con hotel for Nekocon, is 725 Woodlake Drive, so the RRI is right next door or across the street (from what I've been told) So try to look for that one. The phone # to that is 757-523-0123.
After Nekocon 2003, i stayed at the RRI in Norfolk, and it was very quiet, accomodating, and clean. :) So I'm guessing the one in Chesapeake will be just the same, and it'll be interesting staying at an off-site small motel for 4 nights instead of at the con-hotel.. hehe
