I just posted a bunch of additional motels near the field ranging from $85 to $169 per night. All are within 10 minutes of the field and right off the Long Island Expressway.

Did you contact one of the local hotels for an event rate?

Yes. As noted in the thread, one of them offered us a discount if we booked 10 rooms.

The field closes at dusk and the gates are locked. You can check on the campgrounds that are listed at the ESL web site link posted earlier.

For those looking for rooms, Ed found this out:

scouted out some additional models this morning.

All of these are right near exit 40 of the Long Island Expressway and less tan 10 minutes from the field.

Hostway Motor Inn
101 Jericho Turnpike
Jericho, NY 11753
516 - 334 8811

$85 for a room wing a single Queen Bed. No two bed rooms and no cots unless you bring your own.
He said if we booked a block of 10 or more rooms he could do $75 a night.

The room I saw was worn but clean and serviceable. I would be OK to stay there.

Jericho Motel
32 W Jericho Turnpike
Jericho, NY 11753
516-997 2800

Small place, only about 20 rooms. I did not get to see a room
$90 for two double beds and $85 for one king bed

Edgewood Motel
38 Jericho Tpk
Jericho, NY 11753

Whole place has been redone. Looked pretty nice
Queen or 2 Double Beds - $105
King is $115


Hampton Inn - this place is brand new
120 Jericho Turnpike
Jericho, NY 11753
516-997 2000
$169 per night for two doubles or a single king.
Very Nice Place!
