I booked rooms at the Ellan Vannin, which has its own bar and cafe. I have not been there yet, so can't say for certain what it will be like. I found it by using Google Maps. Zoom in to the area of interest, and search for "hotels". There are a number of places like that along the coast in Douglas, which has the most nightlife.

I was advised to book the ferry and accommodations a full year early for the TT. At this point, all commercially available rooms are probably booked, but you may be able to find something in a "home stay":

I think the rush on the ferry tickets was primarily for those taking a vehicle. Foot passenger tickets are more abundant.

I don't think the OP will have as much trouble, not visiting during the race.
