For folks not in easy driving distance of the Twin Cities, you can use this post to find roommates to share a hotel room with or connect up with some of the locals who are able to host some attendees for the weekend!

The GPS Community Center is located at 1121 NE Jackson St., Minneapolis MN 55413. There are quite a few hotels in downtown Minneapolis that are an easy bus ride away. Google Maps should be able to give you the logistical lowdown on that, depending on which hotel you're looking up. Metro Transit also has your back.

Many people last year stayed in groups in Airbnbs near the venue, which worked out really well, and we highly recommend! While we'll leave actual rental & group organization up to you, we definitely encourage you to use this option :)

Note from Jo: You may be tempted to stay at the University Inn off of 4th St as it's the closest hotel to the center, but trust me and do not do the thing. Maybe something has changed in the last decade since I lived in that area, but I know it as a place to avoid and am thus passing on this important info.

Locals, if you have some guest rooms or couch space you're able to spare, please chime in! Any space available at an individual's home is at their discretion, of course.

Hey folks, I've currently got couch or air mattress space for one more at my place if anybody's looking. I'm about a 20 minute drive from the venue.

As ever, I love you all but prefer that I've met you at least once in the real world before you stay in my house. Thanks!

Anyone interested in sharing a Airbnb?

Good timing! I was actually planning on posting here about an Airbnb in a few days.

I did one last year too and it was really fantastic. This year, I'd rather not have to rush out on Sunday afternoon to catch a flight. So I'm planning on a three night Airbnb (Fri, Sat, Sun) instead of two nights. Are you (or anyone else!) interested in that timing?

That'd be perfect! What kind of airbnb are you thinking about?

Last year most of us (I think there were 4 Airbnb groups?) did houses within walking distance of the venue that were 4-6 people

I'll have to look closer when I get home, but the second and third potentially look good! The first one is too far away for walking. And if you want, you can look through last year's lodgings finder post and see if any of the ones we talked about there are still available

Okay so, I had a chance to look more :)

I really like the idea of the third one you posted, because it looks so close to the location.

I haven't just searched around airbnb yet, but from the thread where we discussed airbnbs last year, here are some of my favorites:
- This is actually the place I stayed last year. It was super great and super close, but it's more expensive.
- This one looks very pretty and is a lot cheaper. I'd prefer a whole house instead of an apartment though, so we wouldn't have neighbors if we record something!
- And this is I think my current favorite. Whole house, lots of space, inexpensive, and looks close!

Honestly, if you really like the last one too, I'd almost say let's grab one or two more people and book it right away (and then add people later if anyone else wants in, it sleeps 8). It looks like that place is booked almost all the time, so I'd want to get it while it's still available.

Booked it! We're able to cancel up to 5 days before the trip, so if we change our minds or something comes up, it's easy to make a change.

Can you send me your full name and email address to add to the reservation? Twitter or dreamwidth, either one works!

If you don't feel like reading all the way up thread, annapods, sisi_rambles, and I have snatched up this airbnb. It has lots of space, is inexpensive, and only a mile from the venue. Plus, it's a whole house, not an apartment, so if we want to record it should be fairly quiet!

It fits up to 8, so many more people are welcome to join us :D We've booked it for Fri, Sat, and Sunday nights, but if you're only planning on staying for 2 nights we'll figure it out. If we have 4 people it'll be $125 per person for the weekend, 5 = $112, 6 = $103, 7 = $97, 8 = $92. Join us! <3

Yes! We'll have to do some adjusting cost-wise depending on who's spending 2 nights and who's spending 3, but you are definitely welcome. Message me your full name and email and I'll add you to the reservation.

Despite the fact that I'll be living in MN during podfication I will also be sans car and living in a tiny dorm room over in Saint Paul so I would actually like to airbnb! I'd love to join y'all if you still have space! I have class early Monday so I would probably also just be two nights.

From: [personal profile] shmaylor
Yes there's still space! (And with you we're up to 7, so one more after that if anyone else is thinking about it) Are you a 3 night person or 2?

The listing says it doesn't have parking, but one of the reviews said that parking around the corner was very easy. Is that situation okay with you? If so, send me a message with your full name and email, and I'll add you to the reservation. I don't think we're twitter friends? Unless you have a different username there? But if you'd rather message through twitter instead of dw, I'm @theshmaylor

Is there still room? I'd like to join in! I would stay Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Do you think it has free onstreet parking? I'm not sure yet, but have been thinking of doing a roadtrip instead of flying in.

I'll DM it to you. From poking around on google maps, it seems like there isn't parking on the exact street, but intersecting streets do. Taking a look to know for sure though would be fab!

The last spot is yours! I have your email, but DM me your wallet name and I'll add you to the reservation.

One of the reviews said it was 'easy to find parking around the corner'. And this place is like 2 houses down from the corner, so I think it should be good to bring a car.

Hi! Is anyone else still interested in a different AirBNB? marianas & my gf and I are interested in this one that a few people stayed in last year. It's really close, but more expensive:

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/9075840?guests=5&adults=5&location=1121%20NE%20Jackson%20St.%2C%20Minneapolis%20MN%2055413&check_in=2017-10-20&check_out=2017-10-23&s=mRxmpm_g

There are two bedrooms and a sleeper couch. We can accommodate 2-3 more people if folks are okay sharing beds. I'm going to pay more because I need to claim the one queen bed bedroom because of my old back & insomnia. It would be about $185 per person for 5 people in that scenario.

There's a cancellation fee, so I'm not going to book it unless I know we have enough people. Also, I'm the world's worst sleeper, so probably you'd need to be willing to keep quiet after midnight or it's not a good fit?

Another Airbnb Option

Hi!
My sister and I booked this airbnb for Friday through Monday:

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/12702706?guests=2&adults=2&location=1121%20Jackson%20St%20NE%2C%20Minneapolis%2C%20MN%2055413&check_in=2017-10-20&check_out=2017-10-23

We'll have an extra pull out couch available for one or a pair of cuddly people if anyone's interested. I think this house has another unit available as well here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/5946613?guests=2&adults=2&location=1121%20Jackson%20St%20NE%2C%20Minneapolis%2C%20MN%2055413&check_in=2017-10-20&check_out=2017-10-23

They seem pretty well reviewed and super close to the venue.

Let me know if you're interested.

We stayed here last year! It's an awesome place and I was going to book it if someone else didn't. I'd be leaving Sunday afternoon though, if that's okay?

Not a problem at all. We'll be getting in around nine I think. Our flight gets in at 7:30.
Email me name and email and I'll figure out adding you to the reservation. Fiction.addiction at gmail.
