Offering the lowest rates and the best accommodations for your stay at the Nationals!

Nationals Lodging Policy

Youth Baseball & Softball Nationals is a “stay to play” event. In order to be placed in the tournament, all teams are required to book their lodging through our housing partner, Team Travel Source (TTS). TTS has secured specially discounted rates with the top properties in the area. Please read the important lodging policy information below!

Team Travel Source (TTS), our housing partner, has negotiated the best possible rates with the top properties in the area and give you plenty of options to choose from. All teams that book their rooms through TTS will receive specially discounted rates that are lower than you can obtain directly through the respective property websites.

before you will be eligible to request and/or book your hotel rooms.
Once the deposit has been paid, teams are eligible to submit their housing request by CLICKING HERE.

A Team Travel Source representative will be in touch with you once your request has been submitted.

To begin the process, please review the list of properties below, note your top choice and an alternate choice, and click on the Team Block Request button at the bottom of this page. One of the TTS staff members will contact you to setup your block, and provide you with instructions on how to make individual reservations under the team block. Any reservations booked through a third party provider (i.e. hotels.com, Expedia, Hotwire, etc.), booked directly with the property, or through any other method other than through Team Travel Source will NOT fulfill the lodging requirement and those teams WILL NOT be placed in the tournament*. There are a minimum 56 room nights per team required (i.e. 8 rooms for 7 nights). We enforce this policy due to both our coordination with our lodging partners for room inventory control/management and due to the revenue share we receive from our lodging partners. This revenue share has been factored in and discounted from the team entry fees.

Teams within a 60-mile drive radius that choose to commute to the facility each day may fill out the Local Team Lodging Waiver Request form to adhere to the Nationals lodging policy and avoid a lodging surcharge. If you are within a 60-mile drive radius and still plan on staying overnight, you are required to book your lodging through us.

Less than an hour's drive from Elizabethtown is Mammoth Cave, the longest known cave system in the world. With more than 400 miles of explored passageways, difficulty in tours ranges from easy to strenuous.  The Frozen Niagara Tour is perfect for visitors with small children, elderly family members, or others who cannot walk long distances. If “adventure” is your middle name, challenge yourself with the Wild Cave Tour, where you will journey with experienced guides through some of the starkly beautiful yet physically demanding “wild” areas of the cave.
