I'm flying in on saturday to see RATM, Manu Chao, the Roots, the coup and against me on Sunday. I plan to be completely destroyed since its a million hours in the air from new york on budget tickets.

that being said i'm arrived at ontario's airport around 4pm and need a place to stay for saturday night. I'm debating on whether it makes sense to get a hotel in riverside since i have friends there anyways and driving to the fest on sunday, i was just wondering is having a hotel an hour away a big deal, AND if and when i experience traffic on the 10 expressway and on the way to coachella how much time should i expect to wait before getting there in a rough estimate, should i try for a closer hotel or is that ok?

also i hear the heat is fucking crazy out there around this time, and thats frightening, not a question, just saying.

any hotel recommendations people can give me in regards to cheap hotels that aren't shitty to the point of finding stains and propane tanks in the room would be greatly appreciated. thanks. if you can recommend cheap hotels let me know what you think is good.
