On May 2, I'm running the New Jersey Marathon. Rather than driving to Long Branch the morning of the race, I decided to stay overnight so I can sleep in a little later and be refreshed.

Who am I kidding? I'm going to be a nervous wreck and probably stare at the ceiling most of the night.

Problem is, the obvious hotel options are sold out, and I didn't want to pay north of $250 a night with a two night minimum stay required.

I put Asbury Park into, which scours other travel websites for best prices, and it popped up options via I scored a night in a nice Ocean Grove B&B for $100, one night stay only (no, I'm not going to tell you where, stalker).

So if you're looking for a B&B stay, give this resource a shot. I did a search through Cape May via the site, and it was spot on with options, prices and details. It's a great resource.

I discovered your blog because I am looking for info about the Atlantic City marathon. I had entered the lottery for NYC, but if I don't have a bib, I will do another marathon this fall. I am French and live in the Princeton area. Did you hear good things about the AC marathon?
I see that you train for a marathon in May, is it your first? Good luck!
I am an author too and French teacher.
