    Where is everyone staying ~Joliet IL?


    Just heard the Host Hotel had a fire, and now they say they will be reopening next week?

    Just thoughts of other hotels.. Where are you staying?

    Thanks in advance!

    When I spoke with the host hotel last week they said they will be open in time. Make sure to use the NMRA block rate the rooms were alot cheaper.

    Re: Where is everyone staying ~Joliet IL?

    ill be staying at my house :P just about 3 miles west of the host hotel.

    there are a TON of hotels in the area if you need a place there are a few hotels off of I-80/Larkin ave, I-80/Hobolt I-55/IL RT-30 these three intersections are close, the 2 on 80 are about 12 min and the one on 55/30 is about 18 min away.


    if anyone has any questions, there are a lot of us in this area that can help with location of hotel, food and other stuff.

    for instance, I-80/larkin (north) bob evans, tacobell, sams club
    I-80/Hobolt (north) mcd, arbys, subway, Hero's West(sportsbar) West Side Tap(bar)
    I-55 /Rt 30 - Louis Joliet Mall it has everything around there that the typical mall area has. every fast food you can think of a few semi nicer places for dinner, and like 4 hotels.

    ps. closest walmart from track, north on 53 to I80 west to Larkin north to 52 west a little over a mile. 15 min from the track.

    FYI there are also some sitdown places to eat on Jefferson, which is off Larkin. The Wal Mart is also on Jefferson
