Alternate Accommodations

Several options are open when the Wichita Falls area hotels & motels are full. This information is provided as a convenience to visitors only and should not be considered as a recommendation from the Hotter’N Hell Hundred.

 

Host Homes will be available through the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.  Beginning in July, we will take offers of available rooms from local property owners.  Beginning August 1st we will play match maker and introduce riders to a local family or property owner who wants to help you compete in the HHH.  This is truly hospitality at its best.  Hundreds of host homes are available.  Great host home experiences have resulted in long-term friendships and perpetual HHH accommodations.  To sign up for the Host Homes program follow the link here, or call Marie Libby at 940-723-2741.
