MOLINE — Planning a special trip to see the Great American Solar Eclipse?

You may have some trouble booking a hotel, if you haven’t already done so.

We’ll give you an idea of what the current hotel situation looks like when searching for a room on Hotels.com…

Yes, the red means there are no available rooms.

So we decided to broaden the search a little bit…

Nope. More red!

There are a few hotels with availability but they’ll cost you a pretty penny for a night stay.

Moral of the story: If you’re planning on making a special trip to see the Eclipse, Champaign, Illinois looks like a great option for last minute planners.

Not sure where to start looking? The website Room Key has put together a list of hotels along the path of the Solar Eclipse.

And don’t forget to pack your Eclipse glasses.

Good luck!
