Can someone tell me about how much rooms are for the nearby hotels?? I got an Airbnb last year (great price BUT it was about a half hour away)... I would much rather stay nearby so I can go to my hotel to rest if need be but need to see if we can budget for that.

$230 to $400 per night for gaslamp district. and adjacent hotels. Basicaly anything about a half mile or closer. Hotels in downtown but further out are ~200night. Im pretty sure you can see last years prices here on this forum as well as the comic-con.org website and the unofficial blog sdccblog.com , if you were curious about a particular hotel

I am booking travel for work and decided to see if I could get a corporate rate for SDCC. The preferred San Diego hotel for our very large organization is the Pendry and I see that July 18-21 is blacked out this year b

Hotels can get three times + their regular rates for that weekend, so there's widespread blackouts, even for places half an hour away. It's ridiculous. But I'm lucky that I booked a smaller hotel in Little Italy area back in August for next year.

Last few times I stayed at a hostel but they have more than doubled the price, it is not worth it anymore and they are filled anyway. Still looking for a good backup hotel or hostel in case I fail with the lottery  :blank:

Any hotel on the shuttle route is a good backup (IMO).   Plus, I really don't worry about them filling up.  My first year I didn't know anything about hotelpocalypse (long story).  I booked my own hotel using the list from CCI.  Of course everything downtown was booked, so I looked further away at those that were on the shuttle route.  I booked in May on Shelter Island.  I got the convention rate.  As I was checking in, a couple walked in and made a reservation.  They ended up paying $100 more/night than me (I was eavesdropping), but they got a room.

Phasers on Stun!!!

Yah, that's the thing: you WILL get a hotel, and most likely on a shuttle route. Whether it's downtown or way further out, that's based mostly on luck. But even if things look bleak right after Hotelpocalypse and you get completely shut out, rooms invariably open up. In fact, if you are tenacious enough and check often (like several times a day), you will find downtown rooms. Maybe not all four days, but often 2+ days. If you already booked a room further out, and the new room you find is for Fri/Sat/Sun, I think it's worth it to book that and do a mid-con hotel switch. I've actually done that a few times.

I just need it to be far enough out after Christmas to give me a chance to recover ;D

I'm dependent on my tax return and work bonus for both hotels and airfare so I hope it's February or later.  Otherwise I can't even afford the darn deposit.  I moved into my own place and good lord it's expensive lmao.
