For those planning a trip to the Indianapolis 500 finding hotel accommodations can be a chore. While there are several hotels and motels in the area, staying at a bed & breakfast can add some charm to your trip. Here are three Bed & Breakfasts located just minutes from the Indianapolis Speedway. Each offers a hearty breakfast and special accommodations.

The Speedway B&B is the largest house in the town of Speedway, Indiana. It was built in 1905 and has four to five sleeping rooms available. The room rates range between $78 and $175 per night.
