ok people, i just reserved my room for coachella 08. about 20 miles away. basic motel 6 but really cool people and had a good time there . next to a dennys and gas place for snacks so it was all good. i noticed when looking for rooms that most places within 10-20 miles close are booked and i know last year alot of people were SOL so if u plan on going reserve it now! most places all u have to do is just put down a credit card and you can cancel if things change. good luck people!
