The nearest hotels are in Wooster (about 16 miles / 26 minutes north) and Orrville (about 13 miles / 27 minutes north northeast), also Crist indicated that, "There are players from the local area who would be happy to be the host to an overnight guest as well, just ask and let it be known." Dalton is about the same distance but no hotel.
