Not sure whether there are any ma and pa motels east or north of there, but I doubt it...
    Isn't I-75/Daniels east of ballpark? West would be towards US41 (Cleveland/Tamiami). But there are hotels off Daniels east and west, and, as Thrylos said, likely not a budget whichever direction; especially at this point. You might find more of a bargain further north up 41 (Cleveland Ave), even across the river into N Ft Myers, but you will most definitely need a car unless you want to figure out the bus system, which does exist, but isn't so convenient.

    In regards to minor league spring training staying at Lee County, can anyone tell me where to find a link to the schedule? I'm either blind and can't find it on their website... or blind and can't find it on their website.

    I don't think the minor league spring training schedule has been released yet.

    Here. Links points to March, but there is a single game vs the RedSox on 2/28. The Minor League schedule has not been announced yet.

    Thanks Thrylos, and ChiTown! I will be at that February game, and the 1st/2nd/3rd in March. I was just assuming the minor league schedule was out already… but I guess I jumped the gun. Too excited!

    You will be there too early for "official" minor league games against other teams. Those usually start mid March. Regardless, if you get to the ballpark a couple of hours early and go to the minor league fields you will catch scrimmages (like AA vs AAA) and lots of practice, like TK leading fielding practice. The minor league fields are to the left of Hammond Stadium if you are standing on the parking lot facing the Stadium
