I am going to the Indianapolis 500 for the first time this year, and am having trouble working out the best place to stay. I was wondering if anyone has any advice?
I am looking for the cheapest comfortable accommodation available, if that makes sense! Preferably with reasonable access to the circuit, although I will have a car, so within 20 miles or so.
Any help greatly appreciated!

I went to the 2006 United States Grand Prix and I stayed in the Wingate Inn.
It's about a 10-15 minute drive from the circuit, and fortunately for me the lovely young ladies that worked for the Formula BMW USA series ended up giving me lifts there and back every day, after I'd got chatting to them over breakfast on the first morning.
The hotel was cheap but very nice. The bedroom was comfortable, they had free business centre with computers to use for internet, excellent buffet-breakfast included in the price. I would strongly recommend that you try this hotel; if I ever go back to Indy then I'll be sure to go back there myself.

I've checked and it's sold out, though. It's more expensive than I would prefer, too; somewhere half that price would be more suitable!
