    Angry hotel rates ^ increase

    I was doing some early planning, decided to book a place in advance.
    I found this travelodge at $64.99/day, a f-ing steal if u ask me. I thought that
    I booked it on line, all to have the booking company to tell me it didn't go through? So I called the place directly...so they can tell me that a major entertainment company, booked all the rooms for next Coach... W.T.F.!!!!

    To top it all the cheapest place was at the same place where I stayed at
    for this past Coach. Their rates went up from $89.99 to $129.00/day. I thought
    I was doing this too early...but i was to late for the $64.99 deal. And all the
    other hotels want $200-$300/day, what a rip off!!!

    ************************** FYI ******************************
    The major hotel discount sites are going to start taking bookings for next year,
    by the beginning of JUNE, so look out for some good deals, if you plan to
    get a place. I'm gonna be looking for a better deal, that's for sure!

    And wait in a long ass line for those f-ing portable showers. Hell no!!!
    Not to mention having the sun beam on you early in the morning...
    having a curfew...and no privacy. There are many reasons why I
    don't camp on site, and never will.

    early showers: line is not long. just determine which showers are less crowded before you go.

    curfew: there is no such thing. i mean yes, they say there is, but lordy people party all night.

    sunbeams bright and early: this is why jesus invented battery-operated fans. and by jesus i mean engineers.

    One day I showered around 11am and there were no lines. I also showered really early one morning, no line, but I had to wait for the guy to open up, and then I went back again and rinsed off around 1pm.

    After camping this year, I would definitely want to do it again. Next time though, I'm bringing a wagon.

    So we should just assume that you're just being a spoiled bitch then. Camping is seriously the best way to go. It's $45 dollars for all three nights. Not $45 every single night. That's almost a third or maybe even less of what your going to be paying per night at a hotel. However, if the idea of being right next to the festival, avoiding the insane lines when it's time to leave and the crazy good vibe one get's when hanging out with thousands of others, then yeah... Continue to bitch and get but raped by the hotel prices

    i have always camped except for this past coachella and I have to say it was the best time of my life.....was with about 11 great friends tons of drinking and didnt have to sneak our drinks in...tons of swimming...and tons of clapping at old people while they played golf and i nursed my hangover. Also having a great shower and being able to take a shit in the morning and a shit at night....ah man....what a relief

    Oh yes, caca ... because it is SOOOOOOO fucking difficult to "sneak in" alcohol.

    In fact, I was relegated to employing the services of a zeppelin. It cost me 13,000$ USD.

    Fucking imbecile.

    No camping for me next year only because the porta-potties were atrocious.

    Aside from that, everything was all good.

    camping wasnt that bad i thought it was actually pretty good. If you go camping like at Yosemite the showers there are actually worse.

    Camping is nice if you don't want to wait in traffic, and you want to meet lots of cool random people, and stuff like that.

    But there's nothing wrong with wanting to stay in a hotel. No need to have people get hostile about it. Hotels afford certain advantages that camping just can't. Like pools. And private bathrooms/showers. And air conditioning. And quiet.

    How nice could a 64.99 hotel be in the first place?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I think lack of sleep because of the constant noise and shower lines were the worst problems this year.

    I'm trying to weigh dealing with traffic (hoteling) against getting no sleep and having no time AWAY from the festival to regroup (camping). I haven't decided what's more important yet because although I had very little sleep, I dealt with that OK by taking lots of mini-naps early on everyday inside the festival.

    I think our hotel was only 600$ for the weekend. Split between multiple people it wouldn't be that bad.

    i've been 3 times, hoteled it every year, and never once have I questioned if it's worth it. Yeah the traffic can be a pain, but i've never had the 2+hr waits some have. Sleep, a/c, and shower (and just plain old quiet time) make it worth while to me.

    If you are with a group, the best idea is to rent a condo or house.

    Or have a nice resort room. I can get a 2 bedroom at a couple resorts. I'm not with a group though.
