Hotels in Cleveland (zip 38732) (all the below hotels are on HWY 61 (N Davis)
Hampton Inn 912 N Davis ( about 1.1 miles north of the HWY 61/HWY 8
intersection past Walmart, and Holiday Inn Express, but South of the Airport Grocery restaurant—on the right)
Reg. price 129 (122.66 AAA and 116 AARP) (662-846-2915) MPA price 109 (10 room block)
Holiday Express 808 N Davis (about .9 mile north of the HWY
61/HWY 8 intersection past Walmart, but before the Hampton Inn –on the right)
Reg. Price 106.99 (662-83-9300) MPA price 95 (10 room block)
Comfort Inn 807 N Davis (about .7 mile from the 61/8 intersection on the left
right after the Econo Lodge and Wendy’s.
Reg. Price 77.99 (662-846-1525) MPA price 72 (15 room block)
Econo Lodge 721 N Davis (about .6 mile from the 61/8 intersection on the left )
This hotel has all its rooms with an outside entrance, but is pretty secure.
Reg. Price 65.99 ( 662-843-4060) MPA price 62 (5 room block)
Note: The Hampton
and Holiday Inn are high. The Comfort Inn is adequate and has a
limited single entrance. The Econolodge has
separate doors to each room on the outside, but I would think that the hotel is
pretty safe. I would try to book these prices asap. I
will check on the deadline which I think is about 2 weeks prior to the meeting.
They saved blocks of rooms at the different hotels (10 for Hampton, 10 for Holiday
Inn, 15 for Comfort and 5 for Econo).
Poppa Roc’s “Roc” stands for Rocconi – an Italian patriarch here. Nice Italian food. Bring your own wine. It’s on HWY 8 about a mile from the meeting site going West.
Airport Grocery About 200 yards past the Hampton Inn. Good barbecue .
Lots of memorabilia and atmosphere.
Crawdads – In Merigold about 7 miles north of Cleveland. Go up #61 and
make a curved right taking “old 61. Make a left when you get to a Quick Pic and you should run into the Crawdad area. Good crawfish when in season. A tad pricey.
Pickled Okra Downtown Cleveland. Follow 5th Avenue at the Conference area to Court Street. Make a left and follow Court across the old railroad track “hill.” Make a right on Sharpe St. Pickled Okra is a block on the left. Reasonable prices. I like it. Live bands on Fri. and Sat. after 9pm.
Backdraft A little pricey – good sports on TV. Go back towards HWY 61 on HWY 8 and make a right, just before the RR track “hill.” It’s on the right immediately.
The Warehouse These 2 places are to the left of Backdraft. Make a left before or after you cross the RR track “hill.” The 2 places are on the left. Hey Joe’s is a bar and the Warehouse a more formal restaurant.
