Hoping for July 16/17-July 21 (Will leave in the afternoon of July 21. Arrival date depends on offers/availability)

Hi! My two roommates and I are tentatively looking for a couple of ladies to split the cost of a condo. I say tentatively as we aren't sure if we have more friends joining us. Nevertheless, if you're interested, drop me a message and we can chat!


Name: Bern (25)
Hotel: Condo: 6 blocks to the convention centre (~10 min walk), WiFi, kitchen, washer/dryer
Days Booked: 16 - 23 July
Price: US$100/night or less
Smoking/Drinking: No / Within reason
Disclaimer: There is only couch/floor space available; no beds. There are two bathrooms in the apartment.
Gender/Age Preference: Female only, any age.
Include a brief description about yourself: My existing roommates and I are 20-something-year-olds from Singapore with various occupations. We're friendly! Two of us have never been to the US before, so we're sightseeing a little too. Similar fandoms are a plus! :D

Name: coletteingrid

Hotel: San Diego Marriott Mission Valley.  (was on Purple shuttle route last year and is steps away from the is the Rio Vista trolley stop)

Days Booked: 6! Tuesday 7/16 — Monday 7/22 (check in 4pm; check out 11am)

Price: $180/night plus tax = $203/per night.  For 2 people, $101.50 per night, for 4 people $50.80 per night.  Final Total =  $1217.76 for six nights.

Hotel is non smoking, but the room has a balcony, so...  & drinking is not up to me.

Spaces Left:
I don’t actually need the room.  I have a space in another hotel, but I got this room as a safety net during the hotel pre-sale (which is why the rate is only $180/night and not $195).  Since I already paid, I merely want to be reimbursed, but I could be flexible on the price if you don't need the room all 6 days.

Preferences and Description:
What type of room is it, and how many people can it fit? 

Double w/ 2 queen sized beds for 4 people. 325 sqft/29 sqm. Air-conditioned. Room has a balcony, total size 15sqft/1sqm and a living/sitting area.

Do you have an age or gender preference for roommates?

No.  Since I am giving up the room, I don’t have the right to dictate.  But whomever takes the room first will have free reign to select roomies.

Include a brief description about yourself:

Not that you will have to room with me, but I am a public high school English teacher living and working in NYC.  Last semester I gifted my 10 most motivated and most improved students copies of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One with music playlists.

Specific behavioral preferences for roommates?

Again, see above.

We can discuss PayPal options and we can set up the name transfer any time.  As I said the room is there, and having any room, even in Mission Valley beats camping out in Hall H or sleeping in a parking garage. Unless that’s your thing, then . . .. Email me.

This room has been taken. Thanks all!

Name: Lena Cast
Hotel:No Hotel, it is a house actually. 5 bedroom house with a beautiful view. one bedroom available only for 4 people. Off the 805 Freeway, Exit Olympic Parkway. In the beautiful city of Chula Vista.

Days Booked: Saturday and Sunday
Price: 100 per person
Smoking/Drinking: no/and no
Spaces Left: 1 bedroom
Preferences and Description: Hoping to find responsible and friendly people early on so we can build a relationship. I am bringing you into my home and expect you to be courteous and clean.
What type of room is it, and how many people can it fit? It is a 2 story house about 20 minutes from the convention. We are attending the con for the weekend (sat and sun) and you can come with us if you help us pay for parking. We will be renting one bedroom upstairs. It has its own entrance from the bedroom  where you can leave without using the front door. It is located in the nice area of Chula Vista (off 805 Olympic pkwy). We dont have towels for bathing unfortunately (BYO Towel). The bedroom will have a queen size bed and you can probably fit a total of 4 people in the bedroom.
IMPORTANT: Since there will be no deposit, we will be asking for photo IDs of everyone staying. I hate to assume the worst of people, but for our safety and the safety of our property we will need that information. You will sign a rental agreement valid for 2 days. My sister is a owner of multiple properties, so feel at ease, she deals with personal information in a daily basis.
Do you have an age or gender preference for roommates? not at all. Anyone and any gender (and of course any orientation. This shouldn't even be mentioned but some people are idiots when it comes to the LGBT community) are welcome <3
Include a brief description about yourself: Me? Well, I am 25. I will be cosplaying (if you are cosplaying Dragon Age that would be epic!) My sister owns the house. We are very easy to get along with. We are very friendly and quiet people. We enjoy good company and enjoy making new friends. We would like to have people who will not cause any trouble.
Specific behavioral preferences for roommates? no smokers inside. Obviously we cannot control what you do outside, but none of that inside the property, please. We dont like drunks, so that type of behaviour is out of the question. Just be friendly and courteous and you will receive the same from us.

Name: Joe
Hotel: Omni Hotel

Days Booked: Wed-Sunday
Price: 133 a night for two people, 89 if you're alone
Smoking/Drinking: No smoking but they do have a bar
Spaces Left: Two spaces available

Preferences and Description:
The room has two beds and a shower and is located across the street from the convention center by Petco Park. I'm sharing a room with a friend and we'd like to bring our cost down by bringing in roomates. We're not too picky, just asking that you be cool and we should get along great.

Include a brief description about yourself: This is my 4th year at Comic Con and the 5th for my buddy Steve. We like to hit up the after parties and try to get as much free swag as possible. Oh! And we love trying new restaurants. Aside from that, I like watching movies and listening to music and feel the best part of the convention happens after the doors close and the city transforms. Although the con is pretty sweet too. Hope to hear from you!   :D
Room's been filled. Thanks.  ^-^
