Looks like CCI has released the list of hotels for “The Early Bird Hotel Sale”. These hotels are not part of the Downtown Hotel block. These hotels are typically further-out and are much cheaper then the coveted downtown hotels.
Just like the downtown hotels sales the early bird sale reservations are taken by Onpeak.
CCI has a full break down of how The Early Bird works on their page.
One thing you need to know is that these rooms are Non-refundable and usually require a minimum day stay

Don’t let the distance scare you away from these hotels as they do have shuttle services for them. Shuttle service will be available on Wednesday, July 19 from 3:00 PM until 10:00 PM. 24-hour shuttle service begins Thursday, July 20 at 7:00 AM and runs through Sunday, July 23 at 7:00 PM to help fans enjoy every hour of Comic-Con and the nighttime fun. There are also services like Uber and Lift to meet your needs.
The Early Bird is Good if you don’t mind the distance and don’t want to deal with Hotelapocalypse!
