You could always search the Internet to see what's available. It's worth a shot.

Depends on how much you want to spend and how far away you want to be. On the cheap(er) side, hotwire has a hotel in Palm Springs for $89/nt (it's the Travelodge - I booked it a while back at $70/nt). Who knows, it's probably a dump, though. AAA's site had some decent rates if you're a member.

I'm staying at the travel lodge too, we booked in the beginning of november.
coachella will have great music, so don't ever wait until the lineup announcement to book a room.

Yep, I agree for the most part. Getting there (early) in the morning is pretty quick, but waiting in the parking lot followed by 25 miles to the hotel can be a drag.

staying in palm spings is not bad at all. getting to the festival is no problem and it all depends on when u leave. if u plan to hang around till the end then start drifting towards the exit so you can get out failry easy. but if u drag ass then yeah its a drag to wait in the lot... im staying in palm springs and from last year, its a good spot...

Travelodge in Palm Springs wasn't a dump in '05

Yes, I'm volunteering him since he has the house and probably throws a fabulous soiree.

just book a room right after the conclusion of coachella each year if the hotels will let you. some you have to wait a few months before booking opens up for that time period. but the point is, just book early and cancel if you have to. it doesn't cost a thing to make a reservation or to cancel it whenever you want.

Wow! :eek: The past few years, there were still reasonably priced hotels available at this time of year. Looking at Expedia and CheapHotels.com, there are only a few very expensive resorts ($300+) are available, unless you want to drive back to Palm Springs each night. I found a few rooms in Palm Springs for less than $200 per night.

Maybe it's because they announced the dates before they usually do?

I am glad we reserved a room back in July. I didn't think I could handle the drive back to Palm Springs each night, so we're staying at a Marriott in Palm Desert for $129/night.
