Can anyone recommend places to stay (budget) that are convenient for the Almere LD Triathlon in Holland?

And if you have any tales of woe about the race please don't share as I have already entered : )

Happy racing.

    I've raced in Almere twice before in the past, stayed at the Bastion Hotel, Brill Hotel but not cheap and a fair walk from race start but do able

    Also stayed at Camping Waterhout mentioned in above post, cheap and cheerful with a fair few competitors staying there, Cant remember how far from race site but is walkable/rideable.
    And if you have any tales of woe about the race please don't share as I have already entered : )
