Accommodations for Oil Field Workers

“Stratton Oilfield Systems has developed a keen understanding of the needs of oil field workers and the results are a resounding success.”

A well-rested worker is a safer worker in the field, thus The Studios offer only full or king-sized beds in a quiet, secure environment.  Amenities include:  daily housekeeping, weekly linen service, on-site laundry facilities, keyless building and room entry, DirecTV, Wi-Fi, a fully equipped exercise facility, and private training/conference rooms. The gated grounds are protected by 24-hour security with management and maintenance staff on the premises at all times.

The Two Bedroom Suites are 770 sq. ft., with 2 full size beds in each bedroom, a kitchenette, full-size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dining area, and a large comfortable living room.  The One Bedroom Suites are 322 sq. ft., with a kitchenette and a spacious, private bedroom featuring a king size bed and a desk.  All the Suites are equipped with flat screen TVs in the living areas and bedrooms.

Recognizing the need for community space, SOS created a large recreation facility on the premises, aka “The Man Cave”.  Residents can enjoy gathering around the 82” HDTV or the pool / domino / gaming /ping pong tables.  Out of doors, guests can enjoy the NBA quality basketball goal, huge gazebos & professional horseshoe pits, all set in a grassed, four acre area.

Convenient Dining for Eagle Ford Workers

There is also a state-of-the-art Dining Facility operated by Taylors International.  This is a full service, commercial kitchen, capable of serving three meals each day to 1,000 guests, in four separate dining rooms, if needed.  There are three hot entrées offered at every meal service, always a salad bar and boxed lunches available to go.  Guests have access to a fully stocked snack & drink area 24 hours a day.

Reasonable Daily Rates

With daily rates starting at $49.95, SOS has catapulted The Studios at Carrizo Springs to the top of the list for employee housing in the area.  It is a safe, clean, comfortable, full-service location that sets a new standard for remote accommodations.  Creating this type of model is not easy, but SOS clearly has it mastered.  Of particular benefit to smaller companies is the fact that long-term contracts are not required.  Stay a night, a week or a month.

Eagle Ford Shale Housing Gets a Creative Touch

Eagle Ford Shale housing needs have left very few beds open for those looking to move in to South Texas to take advantage of oilfield jobs. Several companies are stepping up to creatively meet the housing needs of South Texas. From Cotulla to Carrizo Springs and Three Rivers, man camps are popping up for oilfield workers. These new camps aren’t the trailer parks you are used to. The newest facilities have onsite chefs and sport game rooms and workout facilities.

When you consider the population density of some of the counties where the Eagle Ford is booming, the area will need more hotels, motels, RV parks, and rental properties than many could have imagined a few years ago. If you need to book a hotel or simply find a place to live, check out the Eagle Ford Shale housing and lodging page to browse and book a room today.
