Try for free accommodations if you are willing to reciprocate or for cheap, short term rentals.
GET AAA MEMBERSHIP THEY GIVE DISCOUNTS AT PLACES LIKE HOLIDAY INN AND VARIOUS OTHERS LIKE MOTEL 6
You can check on craiglist.org and go under rentals in the city you mentioned and you can find temporary rentals or post a request. This site is also great for other issues you may have for the area.
Hope this helps
Like TOM said, Couchsurfing is a good source of free places to stay. You might also try student hostels, SMU (Southern Methodist University) dorms, student apartments and/or posting an ad on Craigslist saying you will exchange work and/or money for a free or super cheap place to stay.

Good Luck. Dallas is a GREAT TOWN. I lived on Lovers Lane for about a year and loved every minute of it!!

Check out the Belmont Hotel, for a hip stay with a modern twist. You can find them on Facebook or Myspace.
