We attended a Senior Rama in one of the large rooms there. They had all kinds of exibitors., The security department had complete control over the entry process and everything flowed smoothly. There is plenty of parking for a large number of visitors.

I don't believe so, lots of condos for rent in the area, though. There's a La Quinta in FWB over the bridge...maybe 2 miles away?
