Default Lampasas area guys I need some help please.

I am shooting a sporting clays tournament next weekend (OCT 9/10) at the Austin County Gun Club south of Lampasas on 281. I signed up late and all the hotels the club recommends are booked for the night of the 9th which is what I need.

Their recommendations were in Lampasas and Burnet. I am not familiar with that area enough to know which way I should go to look for another set of hotels. Is Marble Falls the next best option? I am looking for 'Best Western' / 'Quality Inn type places.

Any safe hole in the wall places you guys know of in that area?

Thanks.

marble falls is good but likely full as well if the event is pretty big. Lampasas has 2 hotels I believe. Not sure how many MF has

There's a Best Western in Burnet, West on 29, which is fine. Have stayed before.

Also a Comfort Inn on the S side of town.

Thanks. It is the State Supersporting championship. Little different game than regular sporting clays. Good warmup for nationals toward the end of the month.

Copperas cove/Killeen would be my suggestion. I just recently moved from Killeen a couple years ago. If you want trouble you can find it. The hotel areas are pretty safe.
