I suggest you contact your travel agent for specifics, especially
since the conference is getting close. Here is the message I posted

For college students on a budget, I would recommend checking out the
motels near the campus of the University of Minnesota. The "U" is an
easy drive from downtown Minneapolis. In addition, the "U" will be in
the throes of Spring Quarter, so there will be lots to do in and
around campus after a hard day at the conference.

Here are the motels that turned up from my search of the Yellow Pages:

Best Western University Inn
2600 University Ave SE
(612) 379-2313

Days Inn University
2407 University Ave SE
(612) 623-3999

Econo Lodge
2500 University Ave SE
(612) 331-6000

University Inn
2600 University Ave SE
(612) 379-2313

EXPLORE COMMUNICATION at the 41st STC Annual Conference,
Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 15-18, 1994
