Have attended MWP for 10 years and have always stayed at the same hotel. What are your experiences/recommendations for Princeton hotels? Just considering a change this year.

I use the Days Inn because I’m cheap and I can crawl to my room after the banquet if the need arises… That said, I believe Mr Dixon stays at a nice hotel in Peru, IL. Don’t remember the name. My rooms at Days Inn have always been livestock free, if not very luxurious…

I’ve stayed in all 3 motels in Princeton over the past few years, the Americinn is by far the nicest. It’s also the most expensive, about 500 bucks for 4 nights. I’d rather pay that than stay in the other motels though.

I'm staying in Peru, IL at the Fairfield. The hotel is ok-ish but there are more services nearby that Princeton has to offer (not there's anything wrong with Princeton!!). From the hotel to the field is 30 - 35 minutes drive though so a little farther drive.

That pretty much nails it IMO... :)

When the wife comes with me I stay at the Americinn, when she doesn’t either of the other two are fine with me, they have a bed and a shower.
