I have started hotel hunting and found three possible options open at this point, the cheapest of which is under $800 for Wednesday night through Sunday morning and is walking distance from the 'Con.  That said, I am completely open to sharing if someone is interested because for that price the options are pretty "bare bones".  I want to be walking distance (9 blocks or closer) and I am willing to pony up a decent share for a shared room/condo.

I am female and middle aged, but could care less if you are older/younger as long as you don't want to turn the room into a kegger.  I plan to be costuming this year.

If there is a thread for this, I apologize, but it seemed that all the 2013 threads didn't include anything for someone looking to share that didn't already have something booked.

Feel free to message me.

Specific behavioral preferences for roommates?
I'm hoping to find people that share interest in panels so I can stand in line with others at the panels id like to go to. Doesnt have to be all of them mind you, but some shared interests would be nice. Would like to go to panels of Dexter, the Walking Dead, Game of thrones, Psych, and some movie panels. Went to a lot of tv show panels last year that i wanted to go to but Im willing to go to some again. Also I love dressing up. Dressed as towelie from South Park last year. Its not required but would be kind of cool to go with others in costume as well.


Hope to hearn from some of you. Had some friends back out this year do to money issues so would hate to cancel.

I'm English and this will be my first SDCC, although not my first visit to CA.

Not to hijack this thread but a quick detour. Reach out to ukdeejay (one of the moderators for this forum). He has a Facebook group set up for attendees from the UK to make plans together. You might be able to make some new friends and potential roommates this way also.
