Name: AJ - BloodAgentComic
Hotel: Looking for bed, shower and place to keep my stuff within walking or shuttle distance to con.

Days Booked: Right now I need Wednesday night thru Sunday. But there is a good possibility I will either get there Thursday or not stay Sunday. I'd be willing to pay for the day though to hold a good affordable spot.
Smoking/Drinking: Would Prefer neither, can deal with smoking.
Spaces Left: N/A

Preferences and Description:

    * What type of room is it, and how many people can it fit? I'd like my own bed to sleep on, or couch is fine too.
    * Do you have an age or gender preference for roommates? I'm 36, married. I gotta go with male or a couple, no single ladies.
    * Include a brief description about yourself: I am a 1st time Con attendee to SD. I love comic art but I am a complete newbie to comics. What I know its from cartoons, movies and articles here and there...in other words, I know nothing!I will be volunteering at the con.
    * Specific behavioral preferences for roommates? I prefer one that is happy!, clean, and a non-drinker, not loud while I'm trying to sleep, does not bring a crowd back to room.
    * Any additional notes/comments you would like to add? I'm easy going, laid back, but not a partier. Love meeting new people and if you can draw AWESOME!

*** Update ***
I forgot to mention that if I can't, or someone can't get their hands on Friday/Saturday tickets I'd be willing to share the cost of the room. I've seen first-hand how mobs of geeks can be mayhem so empathy rears is beautiful head. Anyhow, good luck to those of you still searching.

BTW - don't forget to try a carne asada burrito...MINT!!!

I'm considering a different approach for lodging for Comic-Con San Diego 2013. I'd like stay in a private home, condo or apartment within a few miles from Convention Center. I've researched options which seem to be more reasonably priced than staying in a major chain hotel near the Convention Center. Most of the options I've found don't charge for double, triple occupancy, etc. which is a savings.

For example: Condo in the heart of Gaslamp Quarter that sleeps 4 with a queen bed in master bedroom and queen sofa bed (air mattress) OR sleeps 5 with twin mattress pad. Cost would be $899 divided by 4 = $224 per person from July 17-21, 2013.

I'm focusing on rental options providing a full refund at least 5 days prior to check-in date, in case I can't get Comic-Con badges. At this time, I don't want to post a link in this forum to the sources since I'm discovering that some private homes and apartments are already being gobbled up. You're welcome to send me a PM.

two different people i know have gotten a condo close to the con & neither of them have had *any* problem filling them! 
I think if you get a good price on a condo without hidden fee's etc  you'll have no problem filling them.  Good luck!

Hi Everyone,

Just a general reminder to use the following formatting.  (The easiest way is to copy and paste the layout and then enter your information as requested.)

Please edit/modify your post if your room is full, or if you made any changes to the room. This is so that people can see which rooms are available and which aren't.

It'll definitely make it easier to find roommates in the long run, especially as we get closer and closer to Comic-Con.  Good luck!


Thanks,
Zero

Wondering if this is still available. Me and my brother are coming from Ireland, and need a place to stay as everywhere close is booked up.

Zero/Alyssa -

Was thinking it might help as part of the template to include if there will be a bed available or space on the floor or sleeping bag or if the plan is to get a rollaway or :eek: sharing beds!
...you had me at hello...

I can add that into the "spaces left" section.   Good suggestion. ^_^d

Name: Chris
Hotel: Looking for someone with a room either on the shuttle line or within walking distance of the convention center

Preferences and Description:
I'm a 31 year-old male from Georgia who is coming to the convention as a volunteer. I keep to myself, am quiet, and low-key. I'll be arriving Friday evening and leaving Sunday afternoon or evening. I'm good with either floor space, couch, sharing a bed, etc. I just need a place to shower, sleep, and change clothes. I'm a big comic books, horror movies, sci-fi, video game geek.

Please let me know if anyone has space available. I can give a deposit if need be.

Room full!

Name: oneroomdisco
Hotel: Westin Gaslamp
Days Booked: July 11-15
Prices: $250 for bed spots, $225 for floor spot
Smoking/Drinking: No/No
Space left: 3 (2 bed spots, 1 floor spot)

What type of room is it, and how many people can it fit?
This is a two bed room.  Right now, it’s just my sister and myself, so there should be plenty of room for 3 more people (I won't go above 5 people in the room).  If you want the floor spot and want to request a roll away bed, that’s fine, but you will be responsible for the cost.

Roommate Preferences:
I prefer girls but either gender is fine as long as they’re respectful of others.  I don't care much about age, although I prefer 18+.  Roommates should be capable of being clean, organized, and mature.  Also, if you’re a light sleeper, be forewarned that my sister and I will likely be heading out very early each day.

Cosplayers are fine, but please no storing HUGE props in the room.

About Us:
23 year old female graduate student and my 15-year-old cosplayer sister.  I’m pretty calm and friendly, if a little shy at times.  We’re both very neat in hotel rooms and generally keep most of our stuff in our suitcases, unless we’re using it.  This is our first Comic Con, but I’ve run rooms multiple times for Anime Expo.

Payment: 1/2 due in order to reserve spot.  The second half will be due by June 15th.  Paypal is vastly preferred, although I will also take checks.

I don’t do at-con payment.

If you interested, e-mail me at sakurajade @ gmail . com.  You can also PM me. 

Either way, please make the subject of your message: Comic Con Room.  In your message, please include the following:
-   Name
-   Age
-   Sex
-   Which type of spot you want
-   Plus any other questions you might have  :)

Thanks!
