The hotels listed here have offered our attendees a discounted rate.  Unless otherwise noted, when making your reservations with these hotels, mention you are with the Rural Water conference to get the specialty rate. And remember, hotels fill up quickly down there and most discounted rates expire a month before the Conference so make your reservations early!

All hotel arrangements, rates and policies are at the discretion of the hotels themselves, and reservations, rates and agreements are between the hotel and the guest staying with them.
