Traveling to the area soon.
Which airport gets me closest to the Fort?
Tips for directions?

Can someone suggest a hotel near the Fort?

For that matter, anywhere good to eat around that area?

The nearest airport is at Manhattan, KS - very small so cost more to come in that close. On motels, try this link: Geary County CVB - Official Website with, I believe, the ones in Grandview Plaza probably being most near the Fort. We haven't lived there in almost 10 years and they have experienced a lot of growth. The Manhattan Airport is on the west side of Manhattan, then you go through a small town named Ogden which goes onto the Fort.

AE is right. I'm at Ft Riley right now. If you're PCSing to Riley for military it's recommended to fly to Manhattan Regional AP. In-processing has a shuttle to pick soldiers up there. the next closest airport is KCI about 90 min-2 hrs & you'll have to pay the bill out of pocket until your travel pay gets authorized.
As for places to eat, if you want more big name chains you'll probably have to go to Manhattan (about 15-20 min drive) for anything short of Village Inn. They do have a mall that has Old Chicago's. If you're a drinker or just like going out to local bars/pubs you'll definitely want to check out Aggieville in Manhattan. It's a 6-block area of bars, pubs, & pool halls. Just make sure to go with a buddy or 2. Sometimes it can get a little rough for soldiers, but only occasionally.
