  4. Abode Motel - 1128 Sheridan Road, Winthrop Harbor, IL - (847)872-3476
A bit of friendly advice dont stay at the hotels that are close to the track.

I wouldnt put these 4 on the top of my list of places to stay at...just saying. Gurnee, IL is the "largest" city near by with one of the largest malls in america and it has plenty of hotels its about 10 to 15 minutes from the track. Zion, IL is also right down the road and is home to the US Navy Great Lakes Naval base so there is hotels around there as well. Also look into Kenosha Wi its also about 15 to 20 minutes north and also has 2 large malls with plenty of hotels near it.

Eric usually gets a deal at the Gurnee Grand Hotel I think is the name and everyone that has stayed there has not complained that I know of. If the deal still applies Im sure Eric will let everyone know what the code is for a discouted rate.
