Hotels/motels linked here have either donated rooms for the "Modern Challenges..." conference speakers, and/or offered a group rate or a room hold for conference attendees. All are on "the north end" of Roswell, very near to the Roswell Mall (conference location), but rooms are limited!! Properties listed here are popular, well-known, and are already  over half sold out for 2017 UFO Festival weekend.

Rooms here are reserved solely for attendees of the "Modern Challenges to the ET Hypothesis" Conference  and also REQUIRE a 3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY   to book under this site's group rate/hold. To book under the Conference Rate room hold, you MUST  first pay to pre-register  to attend the conference ($99 Early Bird). Your emailed confirmation (sent manually,  not via "Auto-reply" - please be patient) will contain telephone numbers AND  a "booking code" which you must give over the phone to book under the conference rate/hold. Follow the links to learn more about each location's amenities, policies, etc.  You may certainly attempt to book "on your own" at these locations if desired, but if they are sold out already (except for our room hold) you will not be able to reserve  online or over the phone without the booking code you receive after pre-registering for the conference. Some still have availability at this time however. We look forward to seeing you in Roswell!
