I'd also be interested in any recommendations, so might as well list-post, it'll be of value to a couple of us. 

Last I was there was this time of year in 2014 and I really should get back (spent the entire day there and never saw it all). Having IHG points to use, I found a Holiday Inn Express in Belmont that didn't charge an arm and a leg (14 miles from CHM) that was clean and comfortable and I found it an easy walk to several restaurants. One bit of advice, some of the live exhibits, like the 1401 demo, only run on certain days, so check the CHM calendar in advance if there's something you absolutely want to see live. -Cory
