For those looking for a place to stay ahead of Mizzou Homecoming on Saturday, October 21, it may be a challenge to find a hotel room.

The Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center had a few open rooms available Thursday but as a of Friday morning, they're completely booked.

Some hotels like The Drury Inn, The Broadway and Hampton Inn Stadium said they were sold out for Mizzou Homecoming as early as Monday.

Stoney Creek Hotel's General Manager Heather Hargrove said it's not unusual for guests to make reservations for homecoming far in advance.

"Reservations typically come about a year in advance because you can guarantee with the history and tradition of Mizzou Homecoming it's popular no matter what is going on," Hargrove said.

Hargrove also said there typically is not a hike in room rates ahead of the celebrations.

"I don't think you see too big of a jump. I know here at Stoney Creek the rates are very similar," Hargrove said.

The parade on Saturday begins at 7:30 a.m. and the Tigers will face Idaho at Faurot Field at 11 a.m.
