'11, '12.1 coldchella
Prices jacked up all over the area at least $70 per room per night. Stayed at Holiday Inn Express on 111 (the one with Applebee's in the parking lot) for $121 per room per night this year. Cheapest for them was $190 this year. Sigh.
Curious, if you have stayed here before. I have always car camped only but am interested in adding the hotel in there as well. Is it walking distance?
There is no hotel within walking distance (that I know of) that is worth the money they will charge. We stay near the stores and either shuttle or drive in. I know I don't have a lot of posts, but it'll be our fifth straight year (in 2013) this way, and it works for us.
Any other tips for affordable rooms aside from motel 6? Have never stayed at a hotel for Coachella. If anyone has any specific hotels I would be grateful. Looking at the Hilton Garden Inn Rancho Mirage at this point.

so Holiday Inn Express PD is booked already? jesus.
I'll be cancelling a reservation for Motel 6 in Palm Desert here pretty soon if anyone is interested in booking a room there....
I think I am going to stick with The Comfort Inn in Palm Springs for next year, unless I end up renting a house of condo with some of my friends.
haha fuck. comfort inn doubled its rates and in the last hour the best western has sold out of any rooms i can afford.
between this and the fee increase I'm thinking of just giving up on this whole shit. like i know i'd have fun but i feel like i'm lining up for the newest iphone at this point, just a whole lot of effort and money that i wouldn't have to expend/spend to stay home and see these bands as they roll through during the year.
Motel 6 in Palm Desert (Right off the 10 at Washington), still has rooms for both weekends for $105 a night. This is about 10 minutes from the Indian Wells shuttle stop right down Washington. There is no obligation or payment needed right now and you can cancel up to 6pm the night before your reservation. No one reading this thread should have any excuse not to at least reserve a room just in case.
Edit: I would avoid the other Motel 6 at Monroe - it's pretty crappy.

actually, it's 6pm day of arrival.
So, I have always reserved a room using one of the travel websites (hotels.com, orbitz, travelocity, etc) as I have never found any decent rates directly from a hotel before. I tried 6 of these websites, and they all say that they will not reserve rooms more than 330 days ahead of time. So, their calendar goes up to about April 9/10 2013. I checked a couple of the hotel websites where we stayed previously, and they say "no rooms available". Just wondering how people are reserving rooms so far in advance, and if I should be worried!
The Red Roof Inn next to the In-N-Out by Agua Caliente had rooms for $160 a night with no restrictions two days ago. I know it's not the best place and a crazy price for it (It's $53 a night on Sunday), but it's a place...
Why the hell would you get a hotel when you could stay in the campgrounds and RAVE YOUR DICK OFF
Bastards at Holiday Inn Express Palm Desert are requiring a Thursday-Monday stay next year. Screw that.

I think I'll sleep in my own bed in Palm Springs.
Decided to not risk it and booked a room at the Hyatt in Palm Springs. Comes with two deluxe double beds and a sofa bed, so it should easily sleep six people. Not too bad for $162 a night.
