I stayed at the Super8 at 5606 East 51st Street for the Oct '11 Oktoberfest and the rate was $62 a night. Its now $316 per night. While its a much nicer hotel than most, its certainly not worth that kind of money. I sent them an email asking why the rates are so high. Just for the fun of it I changed dates to see if the activity at the new race track was the issue, it didn't appear to be. The rates dropped into the $200 range.
The above two in my opinion are the best as far as location is concerned. Getting to the field is easy from both.
I'll do some more hotel research and see what I can come up with.
America's Best Value Inn has a 20% discount for booking 14 days in advance bringing the rate to $63.99. They might do better if you bring your own lizard.
