In the Tallahassee forum click on hotels then click on the interactive map on the right. It will show you most of the hotels in the area. You can pan this map along I-10 to see other hotels outside of Tallahassee. There are not a lot of them but you may be able to find something.
By out of the vicinity, do you mean nearby towns?
A friend's parents stay at the Holiday Inn in Quincy - not too far from Tallahassee.
Quincy's a nice small town, and would make a good choice. Barring that, Lake City is getting pretty far away.
You might want to look into Howard Johnson's in Midway FL.
It's pretty basic, but I have heard and seen some good reviews.
For "moderate" hotels, the Staybridge is great, although it's on the east side of town. The Holiday Inn on North Monroe is closer and really quite nice, too. However, I don't know what the going rate here is during game days.
