Amenities near the hotel

Here's a list of some of the basic amenities near the hotel that you might find helpful for FocusFest. If anyone has anything specific that you might be looking for please let me know and i'll see what I can find for you and add to the list. One thing I will say is that fuel is generally more expensive in Illinois than in Missouri. if you can cross the river and fill up in MO will usually save you 10 cents for or per gallon. The area that we are staying in (Fairview Heights, IL) have a good size shopping center on the same exit off I-64 with most everything you might need nearby.

Walmart:
1504 East Highway 50
O'Fallon, IL 62269

Randall's Wines & Spirits: ‎
10800 Lincoln Trail #1
Fairview Heights, IL 62208

O'Reilly Auto Parts:‎
10601 Lincoln Trail
Fairview Heights, IL 62208

Dobbs Tire & Auto Center:‎
50 Lincoln Highway
Fairview Heights, IL 62208

Auto Spa Oil Change:‎
10518 Lincoln Trail
Fairview Heights, IL 62208

Danny's Car Wash:‎
5709 North Illinois Street
Fairview Heights, IL 62208

BP:
6400 North Illinois Street
Fairview Heights, IL 62208

I live in the area, but I can be of some help. Un/fortunately I plan on being across the country when FF14 rolls around.


1.
Crockett Coin Operated Inc
Too much money too little time Kinda out of the way too.

2.
Danny's Car Wash
5709 N Illinois St, Fairview Heights, IL 62208 (618) 233-5016
no recollection


3.Auto Spa
5110 N Illinois St, Fairview Heights, IL 62208 (618) 239-6390
High Schoolers wash your car for the most part

4.Auto Spa Oil Change
Get your oil changed next door.


5.
Huck's
1029 Lincoln Hwy, Fairview Heights, IL 62208 (618) 632-4807
Gas station, probably a drive through.

6.
A & G Auto Spa and Mobile Detailing
mobile?


7.
Crown Car Wash
406 Hartman Ln, O Fallon, IL 62269 (618) 624-6559
Coin, recommended.

Belleville and Swansea are too "landlocked" from the major interstates, and you would've passed everything above.

Palms car wash is coin self serve as said above.

The Shell in O'Fallon is a brushless automatic, I run my car through it sometimes in winter.

There's also a decent coin wash in Caseyville not too far from Hwy 64 on the way to the track.

I'm foggy on what's North of the hotel on 159, I never really have to go that way for anything, not much to see. You'll run into a big ketchup bottle though.
