LUBBOCK, TX--- May 17 and 18 is graduation weekend for Texas Tech, and there is no room at the inn for families of graduates.  In fact most hotels all across Lubbock were already booked unless guests called months in advance.

Staybridge Suites - having been for months in advance - is one hotel that is preparing for families and visitors in the coming days.

"Absolutely no rooms left here," said Lisa Ellison, Sales Director of the Lubbock Staybridge Suites. "If it was released in about January, by March we were sold out on weekends."

Ellison said if someone is planning to come to Lubbock during an event like graduation at Tech, book as far in advance as possible.  Otherwise would-be guests end up on a waiting list.

"We do have a wait list that we keep and as we get cancellations," said Ellison. "And we just start at the top of the wait list and work our way down."

Staybridge Suites said they are almost full for the Paul McCartney concert later in June.
