For folks not in easy driving distance of the Twin Cities, you can use this post to find roommates to share a hotel room/Airbnb with, or connect up with 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 for planning your bus route.

Many people in previous years have stayed in groups in Airbnbs near the venue, which has 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. :)

As always: 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 post to let folks know! Any space available at an individual's home is at their discretion, of course.

I was thinking about doing the same. The one I stayed in last year was walking distance to the con which was nice.

OKAY SO. I finally got my shit together and started researching.

These are the best 4 options I found for the 19th-22nd.

Option 1 - Looks like it may be the closest to the venue, but most expensive. $728.03 total. 6 people (the listing says 7, but I think that includes 2 people on a double bed, which is a little tight), 2 of those would be couch sleepers.

Option 2 - $524.91 for 6 people. 4 bed spaces, 2 couches (but they look a little small? idk I'm a tall person), and a giant looking finished basement with floor space if anyone wants to bring an air mattress. Location is a little offset, not too far, but doesn't look like there is a good direct way to walk there. Parking on site though if anyone is driving.

Option 3 - Furthest away, but my favorite. $646.27 for 6 people. 5 bed spaces, 1 couch space, 2 bathrooms. Looks clean, large, and simple.

Option 4 - Technicalllly the cheapest, but smallest. $441.93, and only fits 4 people, so the cost is divided over less people. The listing says 5, but again, I'm not counting a double bed as 2 people.

Thoughts? Is everyone still interested or have people found other places since I took forever to get to this? And of course, if there are more people interested, we can split between multiple airbnbs :D

I like option two or three, and I can totally take a couch space even if its a little small.

Marianas & I are interested in joining y'all, if there's room. we can probably go through the listings tonight and let you know what our preferences are. (IME, double beds can comfortably fit two if they don't mind being cozy.)

I am pro- close, so I think option 1 gets my vote. lattice_frames & I would be willing to take the futon.

Depending on how many folks are still interested, if we have to branch off into a 2nd airbnb, there's a close but small one here for probably 4 people (2 queen beds)

not too late! honestly, I left 4 months between "I want to do an airbnb!" vs actually researching airbnbs (whoops), so I'm not sure if some of the initial interested people already found other stuff.

I figure we'll wait another day or two and then make decisions based on who's chimed in on the options

I like #1 and #3. I'd prefer to be close despite the cost, but I'd also planned on renting a car so it's not a big deal either way. And if it's all the same to everyone else I would prefer a bed to a couch. :)

I also would like to be close (option 1), but if there's a car on the table, then I'd be okay with being further away.

Hello all! Since most people have said they prefer option 1, we decided to go with that. I did the booking because I had a coupon that I needed to use. We have reserved it for seven people, and the cost after the coupon comes out to 104 dollars per person.

Once the reservation is accepted, then I will have a reservation code that I can share with everyone, and we will have three days to pay for the airbnb. We can each pay for our part through airbnb directly which is really nice.

If there are any problems with this then we can cancel for free within 48 hours of now, so speak up!

If you want to pay right now, instead of waiting until tomorrow then you can email me (yourgrantaire at gmail) your airbnb name and your email address and I can send you the link.

Update:

Our reservation has been accepted and I now have the link to pay for the Airbnb. I am not going to post it out here on the internet because that seems unsafe but email/dm/message me or shmaylor for the link!

Just to confirm, the 7 are: you, shmaylor, xdiorix, velocitym1, isweedan, marianas, and myself correct?

I'll dm you in a moment for the link. Is it one link per person or can you pay/add info for 2 people at once?

That's the plan!

I'm pretty sure how it works is that you can only pay for one at a time, but you can use it more than once. You pay for "empty guest spot #x" and then can come back and pay for spot #y

So I thiiink we might be able to make it work. The listing says max of 7, but there's a queen bed, a fold out futon that sleeps 2, single bed, couch, and a double bed. I usually don't think of a double bed sleeping 2 people, but if 2 are willing to be cozy, that brings it up to 8. Or, since you're driving and presumably have car space, if you have an air mattress, there'll be space for that somewhere. We'll have to finagle money stuff (b/c we've paid through airbnb and the system only lets you split up to the max # of people on the listing), but that's doable.

Also if that doesn't work, I know klb is looking for someone to split a hotel room with!

No air mattress, but I have an awesome sleeping bag and an excellent pillow. Okay, I'll try to get ahold of klb first. Also, if anyone else is still looking for accommodation, I'm still up for renting another place??
