Lodging:
Lodging is on your own at this training. Various lodging options are available in and around Stephenville. We will start by recommending these three hotels:

Holiday Inn Express
121 Lockhart St.
Stephenville, TX  76401
http://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/hotels/us/en/stephenville/stpes/hoteldetail
888-465-4329

If you use the code “TX4H” you will get a 15% discount on your room rate and the Texas 4-H Foundation will receive some monetary support from LQ.

Hampton Inn
910 South Harbin Drive
Stephenville, TX  76401
254-918-5400
http://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/texas/hampton-inn-and-suites-stephenville-DALSVHX/index.html
This will most likely be the most expensive hotel of the three.

There are other hotels in Stephenville, but I would bet these are probably the nicest.  If they don’t work, let me know and I’ll try to get you some more suggestions.  They are all fairly close to one another and our office; it doesn’t make much of a difference as far as distance goes in getting to the office.
