The park is kind of out in the middle of nowhere and I don't recall any hotels within walking distance. Renting a car is probably for the best anyway because there's tons of parks within reasonable driving distance so you can catch a whole bunch of other games if you want to. It's pretty awesome.

I stayed at the "team hotel," which was in Glendale. It was maybe 20 minutes away. However, it had numerous eating places right next door. I think the Phenox Coyotes played there and maybe another team as well. None of the players stayed there, but I did meet a scout or two. I've only "been" to the Marlins and Reds BP, and the Reds wasn't really for me, as a regular fan. As a regular fan, you are confided to an extremely small space, and you can't really see the full thing. Luckily, I was able to get on the other side of the gate and see everything in whole. The Marlins wasn't that uptight and restricted.
