Rooms near Bristol Speedway

Can anyone tell me some towns to check out for rooms near or not too far from Bristol Motor Speedway? Coming to the March race.

1. Re: Rooms near Bristol Speedway

Finding a place to stay during the 2 NASCAR races we have each year is very difficult. Check out the following towns for rooms, but be prepared to make a lot of calls. The Tri-Cities area is somewhat compact (all towns are within around 20-30 miles of each other), so there are several places from which to choose.

1. Bristol - TN or VA - even though the racetrack is in TN, Bristol is a twin city, meaning the state line goes directly through the city.

2. Johnson City, TN

3. Elizabethton, TN

4. Bluff City, TN

5. Kingsport, TN

6. Hampton or Roan Mountain, TN - cabins would be all you could find either place, but they are still close enough and would be places other out of towners may not consider.

7. Jonesborough, TN

Appleton, Wisconsin

If none of those smaller cities result in a place to stay check Knoxville, TN. They have a ton of hotels and the ones I have looked at are fairly cheap pricewise for a Nascar weekend. Plus Knoxville is a straight shot to Bristol on the highway.

Asheville, North Carolina...Reasonable hotel prices and one hour from Speedway lots of dining choices. The closer you get to Bristol, the more you'll pay for lodging (up to $200 and more per night.) We enjoy the scenic drive through the mountains on the Blue Ridge Parkway on the way up and back.

Be prepared to pay jacked up rates! I live here and cannot beleive the price mark up! A room normally $30-120 a night will run $250-500 a night! with a 3 day min. at almost all hotel/motels in Tri Cities area! If you have a family or would love to relax during the races Gatlingburg & Pigeon Forge are about an hour away & there March rates & August rates are the same thru out those months & will be slightly higher on the weekends as usual! Chalets also available for great weekly rates! Google those 2 towns & they are loaded with places to eat & stay!

Plus there is alot of things to do there! That is where I would go for the races & make it vacation!
