The Iowa State Fair happens once per year for ten days in August. The food will give you indigestion, but you won't be able to resist. Perhaps the one bright spot for food is the Jennie Grinder. I can never go to State Fair and...More

I am attending a horse show at the Ohio Expo Center/State Fairgrounds. I would like to know of any nice hotels in the area. I would like something fairly close and want to avoid getting stuck in traffic on my way from the hotel back to the fairgrounds. I stayed at the comfort Suites last year and it was terrible. They really let it get run down.

the nice thing about the fairgrounds is that you're right off of I-70 so you can go north or south... I'd go south. for a nice basic hotel check out the Red Roof Inn downtown (Nationwide Blvd) or Drury Inn (also on Naationwide)... only a 10 minute drive from the fairgrounds. There's a convention center downtown so finding a room downtown can either be easy peasey or next to impossible the side bonus is, if you can get a room downtown, you'll be within walking distance of a ton of other...More

Have you tried the Extended Stay Americas at Crabtree Valley? I think it will fit your criteria.
