ALTERNATIVES TO HOTELS:
There are a few trends becoming increasingly popular with travelers each year. For the adventurous type these options are either less money than the average hotel or can give you more bargain for your dollar. They may require a little more research, but in the end you'll often find yourself pleasantly surprised with the results.
This network offers a global network of people offering rentals ranging from rooms to entire homes. The prices are often equal to or less than an average hotel. However, you get the feeling of an actual home, sometimes with the personal attention of a friendly hosts. We've used this service many times and trusts us, it's great. Come on, stop being intimidated by something different and sign up. You'll be asking "Why haven't I heard of this before?"
Finally, there's the good ol' hostel - y' know, the place you always see as a drawback because you share the room with a bunch of a people but in the end end up finding a lot of great drinking buddies. Austin has some of the coolest, a few with their own small but private rooms. The link below will help in finding a few of the places some of our Spillios stayed last year.

Thanks for putting this guide together. So if I guess right. The holiday inn is the best choice to stay at due to the distance?
The Holiday Inn is directly across the street from the daytime events. (Also wow sorry for the way late response)
I have a room booked at the super 8 downtown that has an extra bed, I also have a car and will be getting into town on the 14th. This is going to be my third Spill.con too so I know my stuff (kinda)! If anybody is down for sharing a room hit me up....unless you snore. :p
Also willing to help others with rides, gas comp is nice but not required.
Id totally pay you for gas since I didnt rent any transportation
Who is staying at either the Holiday Inn Midtown or Habitat Suites?
Im staying at the holiday inn
Just purchased my room. Any Spillios that are familiar with walking to the events. I need a tour guide!
Hey if anyone is willing to split a room I already booked one. Just realized staying in a room by myself isnt the smartest thing to do . Send me a message.
