I think I remember terryg saying something about providing an
all expense paid weekend for two at the Hyatt Regency Downtown for the winner.
Now that would be something indeed. There are a few newer hotels on the bypass. But the closet hotel to downtown Alvin is the Knights Inn and let me tell you, if I had to stay there, I would carry no matter what was posted.

Here are a few reviews:
We stayed at the rooms in the middle by the pool.Let me tell you,it was nasty but it was 1am and we were all tired,and kids.Never again will I stay here,the carpet at adjoining rooms was wet.My room the bottom of the tub was black.
I'm staying here right now. I travel for a living and live out of a hotel room. This is bad even for a Days Inn. The bathroom is dirty, tub and toilet. The water comes out of the faucet brown for half a minute. There isn't but 1 towel, the cleaning staff didn't replace the towels in my room. The sheets smell like body odor, there IS NO continental breakfast, none. Room itself has seen better days. Newly renovated? since when, 1975? There are several brand new motels and hotels right up Hwy 6 there. No name places but brand new facilities that are much nicer for comparable money. I'm checking out tonight..not one more night of this smell. I'm not mad I just know better. Oh, and the hotel is located painfully close to the rail tracks and there are no less than 3 trains that go by for about 10mins each starting around midnight ending around 1:30am..and they are very very loud. It would be easier to sleep next to the interstate in a tent.
