Sept 10th - Michigan/Notre Dame Game - NEED HOTEL

My husband and BIL are going to the night game on Sept 10th and will need a hotel to stay in as we are from Chicago. They would ideally like to stay in a hotel/motel that is closer towards Chicago versus heading towards Detroit or further east. Any suggestions? Obviously Ann Arbor hotels are all booked! I've checked Dexter and Chelsea too but hotels in that area are booked. Not sure where else to look. Suggestions? It's hard b/c sites like expedia and hotwire don't have listing for small town hotel/motels.

What about Jackson? Jackson is 30 miles from Ann Arbor and about a 30 minute drive.

Thanks...only 3 hotels in the area (at least that I could find) and they are all booked. Looks like I may have to go east to Belleville.

Travelocity is showing availability of hotels in Jackson. That's where I'd book, puts them on their pathway home on Sunday.

I booked the Baymont at DTW and they still had availability.

Sometimes it pays to call the hotel directly. The on-line availability not always accurate.

If you go to Jackson I'd stay at the Holiday Inn, even if it's more, rather than the other two listed. Hope you have tickets. These are the most sought-after tickets of the season...even more so than Ohio State! We'll be there too.

There are some nice hotels in Dundee, which is just 20 min. south of Ann Arbor, because we have a huge Cabela's store here. If you stay in Dundee, you would only be about half an hour north of the Ohio Turnpike, which, as you probably know, is a direct route to Chicago.

Good luck!
