Conference Location and Lodging

The 34th Annual Alabama Clay Conference will be held in the Leone Cole Auditorium at Jacksonville State University, Jacksonville, AL. 

The following is a list of hotels and accommodations in the immediate Jacksonville area:

1) The official conference hotel is the Hampton Inn Jacksonville. This is the hotel closest to Jacksonville State University. We have reserved the entire hotel at a group rate of $109/night. This rate is only good for booking until January 10th, 2019, at which time the rates will revert to normal. Space is limited to the total of (80) rooms (45 doubles/35 singles) so make your reservations early! Use the following link to register:

2)  The University Inn in Jacksonville is another, more affordable option with rooms around $60/night, located just a short 2.8 mile drive down Hwy 21.

3) For a yet even more affordable option, there's the Lenlock Inn, located just 9 miles down Hwy 21 in Anniston. Booking is available through any number of travel websites such as:

4) If you're feeling fancy and want to treat yourself (and, really, who wouldn't?!), there's the lovely Hotel Finial just outside of downtown Anniston, 13 miles to the south.  Check the rates online and book early- it's really not that expensive for 3 nights. Just remember to finish your martini at Spencer's Bar in time to make it to the Conference!
