    Does anyone know if any hotels in the Sparts, IL area the have a vacancy for August 9 - 14. I would like to be within a 1/2 hour of Sparta if possible. I have checked with several with no luck so far.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Try O'Fallon, IL and Fairview Heights, IL. It is just slightly farther than you requested but they have hotels and restaurants a plenty.

    Thanks for the assistance guys. I was able to reserve a room at the Fairgrounds Inn is Du Quoin, IL for $72.00 / night. It looks to be about 35 miles from the Sparta shooting complex. They said they had more rooms available if anyone else is looking for a room. Looks like a decent place from their web site. Thats all I know about the place.
