It may be more expensive and not as nice (by reviews) BUT it will be ground central for AMC everything! The cruises, car shows, block party, evening "socials", swap meet and main car show...6 miles away sucks.

Just booked a room at the Eisenhower. They told me it was the last one. Had to take a King Suite for more money, but it puts me at the scene of the crime. I probably will skip Kenosha, not sure yet.

Ok, 
After reading Sonic Silver's response, I called the host hotel and they have filled up their rooms for the AMO Nationals.

With that said, I will be working on trying to get other Hotels in the area to offer some discount rates. Until then, 5 miles southwest of the event, in Emmittsburg, MD is the Sleep Inn. About 8 miles away on the North east side of Gettysburg on Route 30 is the Hampton Inn, Hilton, Inn, Days Inn, Super 8 and the Wyndham. There are a few motels in Gettysburg, but parking would be tight. 1863 Inn of Gettysburg, Gettysburg Hotel and James Getty Hotel. There is also a Comfort Inn on the south side of Gettysburg next to the Cemetery & a Quality Inn on the west side of the Cemetery.
In addition there is a Comfort Inn about 4 miles south of Gettysburg at the Outlet Mall. 
There are two camp grounds outside of Gettysburg, Artillery Ridge Campground & Round Top Campground. Both campgrounds are south of Gettysburg and with in 4 miles of the Show field.
There are several Bed & breakfast all over Gettysburg, but I do not have any first hand knowledge of the accommodations. 
I will try to post updates as they happen on the Hotel accommodations.

Sent my form in last year, and yesterday reserved a room at Super 8 close by for $60 a night.  That's the plan, unless we sell the pop up camper and get a pull behind trailer.
See you there, and more!

I don't remember IF they sent a confirmation, or not.  I should find out or try to get a copy of my form.

Update!

We had a man on the ground today in Gettysburg to secure about 90 additional Motel rooms at 3 different Motels in the area. As the arrangements are finalized I will post the names, locations, rates and name that the motels will use for those events. Sooooo stay tuned!

If your wanting to book a room, see my post made on 1.16.17. I booked a room in a clean place, rated very good, at a fair price and includes breakfast with the option to cancel. Can't beat that. Here's most of it.

"Made a reservation today with The Days Inn, Gettysburg, rated "very good" on Trivago.com. I called Days Inn directly, starting price for a room was $190 because of the show. I easily talked them down to $149, to $127, to finally $93 then asked if they'd include the option to cancel, which it didn't, plus breakfast. Got it all!"

Is there on site parking at the host hotel for people who want to attend the show but do not have a room?

In Rockford I got a pass for the trailer.  Nobody seemed to care if I was staying at the host hotel or not so I just left the car and trailer there.  My hotel was within walking distance, which made it super easy. It was a nicer room for lots less money.

I really don't mind a short drive. I've driven through that area dozens of times and I've been to the host hotel location for a conference. I may just grab a room down the road. In Cleveland we stayed down the street and it wasn't a big deal. The road the host hotel is on isn't very congested. There is easy access to the highways and the historical sites are very close-by. I think it's a great location this year!
