Where to stay for Moto GP Austin

Me and my GF are riding to spend the weekend in Austin for the Moto GP. Any recommendations on where to stay? We are both taking our bikes. Would like to do some back roads riding while there besides attending the GP. Also suggestions on how to get there away from the 290 type freeway and more of a scenic route? Would be cool to get a group going from Houston too. We are planning on leaving Friday returning Sunday.
Thanks.

We're at Airport Wyndam Microtel. Riverside and 71.

Last year we did 1488 W from 45N, 159 W, 71 W to Austin. Lunched in Fayettville. Not a bad ride.

Most of the places we checked are booked, so we are staying with some friends, plus he has a garage to put my bike in.

There are a few if us riding up, so if there is a group ride going PM me, or let's start a thread

I'll be riding up as well that Friday, but I live just north of the woodlands so I take the back way to Austin which cuts through Conroe, navasota, brenham.

I use a thick steel cable lock and either lock to a pole or lock a couple bikes together. If they want it bad enough they'll get it, just try to make them work for it.

Thats what we did this year. Got a 3 bed 2 bath with a garage for about 800. Split it between 3 and it turned out to be cheaper than a hotel plus has a garage. Were headed up early Thursday so we can ride all day Thursday and Friday morning for a bit before we head to the track Friday afternoon.
