We recommend the LaQuinta Inn on 2333 S Acadian Thruway and Interstate 12 (Baton Rouge, LA 70808).
Here is a link to MapQuest map of where the LaQuinta is - You would go down (south) on Acadian to get to LSU.
LaQuinta is offering a rate of $59 a night for a room with two double beds and includes a Continental Breakfast each morning. To get this special rate, you must call the local LaQuinta (225-924-9600) and tell them you are attending the ACM Programming Contest. This rate will be good until October 27 (or until rooms run out).
At the bottom of this page is that same map retouched with a Purple path leading from LaQuinta to Coates Hall at LSU.
Beside the Laquinta is a Denny's (if the Continental breakfast is not adequate). Just West of the LaQuinta (across the street) is a really good place to eat - TJ Ribs. They have great ribs, steaks, etc. Just South of the interstate is an Outback and a Lone Star Steak House. One block to the east of the LaQuinta (get on the interstate going east and get back off) is College Drive. If you go south on College Drive, you will find Taco Bell, Burger King, McDonalds and several others. Directly across College (on the service road) is Chili's and several others. To the North on College Drive is a Wendy's along with several other places if you turn right on to Corporate drive (first right off College N). Just South of the interstate on Acadian is a WalMart (in case you discover that you forgot something).
Several other hotels exist in this area. We recommended LaQuinta because of rates, openings and ease of access.
Please note that Acadian Thruway has a 40 MPH speed limit that is often enforced.
