Limited home hospitality is available to full-time registrants on a first-come, first-served basis. Although we will try, we simply can not guarantee that we will be able to provide hospitality to everyone who requests it.

Request hospitality through the registration process. The later you register, the less likely we'll be able to place you.

If you request hospitality, you should receive an ac­know­ledge­ment email from our hospi­tality coordi­nator soon after you register, but you will not receive your host assign­ment until closer to the event.

If you are in the Houston area and can offer hospitality, please click the button below to submit your offer to our housing coordi­nator.


The hall is in zip 77022 and there are several motels near there. The closest one to the hall (½ mile) is an America's Best Value.

Avoid the Western Inn. It is not a Best Western and gets terrible reviews.

There are some nicer hotels to the west in zip codes 77018 and 77092; we list some of them below. There are also some reasonably-priced Airbnbs in the area, as well as some rather expensive ones.

We don't have a deal with any particular motel and suggest that you check Trip Advisor or other review sites for recent reviews.

Popular in the past

Over the years both of the Marriott Brookhollow properties have been popular with Bayou Bedlam attendees. The Springhill Suites includes breakfast while the Courtyard does not, but remember that we serve a continental breakfast on Saturday and a full brunch on Sunday.


There are several properties along Hwy 290 between W. 43rd and Pinemont including a brand new Fairfield Inn & Suites, Holiday Inn Express, and Platinum Inn & Suites. These are an easy 15–20 minute drive to and from the hall along W. 43rd and Pinemont.
