    I'm considering attending part of the Grand in 2009 and would like info from shooters that have stayed in hotels/motels in or around the shooting complex. Is there anything decent within a half hours drive? Please let me know. Thank You, Pat Christopher

    More then likely you will have to stay at least 45 minutes from the complex. There are a couple of decent motels in Sparta, but they are probably already booked. I think last year they were charging somewhere around $130.00 a night.

    Pat,you don't have to spend that kind of money.

    Here are a few.Mainstreet Inn,Pinckneyville,Il. about 18 mins away.

    $45.00 per night.No Hilton,but clean nad Barbara owns the place.
    Plus free Ice ,just tip for her animals she supports.

    PH.#800 455 7378 Fax 618 357 2128

    Best Western Chester IL. nice -nice about 20 mins away.If I recall around $95.00 per night.PH#618 826 3034

    Super Eight Motel--Pinckneyville,IL. about $65.00 per night.

    (warning) ran by Indians-But,still half way nice.

    Ph#618 357 5600

    The wife and I have stayed at all of them.My pick Mainstreet Inn.
    Three blocks from there is a little hole in the wall Cafe that has food out of this world.Not fancy,but if you like meat and tators this is the place to go.

    Hope this helps

    I stayed at the Motel 6 in Caseyville. Its about 50 mins from the complex, but a fairly easy drive. 2 story motel, outdoor in-ground pool, and the best part, $35/night, and I booked about 3 weeks before the grand. Room was on the small side (probably par for a motel 6, buts its the first time I stayed with that chain), but very clean, very large bathroon, and value for $ was GREAT, one of the most impressive motels i've ever stayed in regardless of $. Dairy Queen right around the corner, and I think there was a Pizza Hut nearby as well.

    Colonel, I tried to book a room at the K-river motel last year. I was told unless I was shooting the whole Grand they wouldn't book a room. Is this still true? Looked like a nice motel. Hoosier
