There are a couple motels at the Braidwood exit off of 55. One of them they used in the movie "Planes, Trains, And Automobiles", so ya got that going for ya.
Elks Motel a little farther north on 55.
Joliet has dozens of motels. Check Channahon also.
When you get to the site, alot of the house techs and other friendly Exelon people will be renting rooms, on the bulletin boards, cafeteria, etc.
