Both Holiday Inn and Guestkeeper are right on the North Side of Van Wert, which is about a ten to fifteen minute drive from Ohio City.
They are on US 127, which is Washington St in Van Wert. Just North of both hotels (not even two minutes) is the Wal-Mart Super Center, along with a McDonald's and Sonic, so you have some great access to supplies. In town, if you take Washington St (US 127) South to Main St and take a right on it, you'll go through town and see some local shops. You'll eventually come to Shannon St (State Route 118), and if you take it South you'll go through a line of fast food chains as well as some grocery stores.
If you stay on Shannon St/St Rt 118, heading South out of Van Wert, you'll pass the high school on your right, a good landmark that you're heading the right direction. Stay on that road until you enter Ohio City, the Community Building is just on the left.
You can also take US 127/Washington St South out of Van Wert, keeping on that road until you come to 709, taking a right and following it through Ohio City. 709 will turn onto a steet called Carmean in Ohio City, which will take you to St Rt 118. Going this way, you'll actually be on the other side of the Community Building, so take a right on 118 and follow it north to find the Community Building seconds away.
You'll also notice the gas station, which will be on your right if you take 127 to 709 to 118, which is a great place even in walking distance of the event site to get some food (they have chips and cold sandwiches as well as an order menu) and drinks.
