Often times foggy at start but warms up and clears off quickly. I have raced this 2x and had wonderful experiences.

The Holiday Inn offers and early am continental breakfast with everything you need. They also offer a marathon discount. It's close to the bay so a little removed from the town but nice and quiet. The marathon shuttle does stop at this hotel!!
