I decided that I will be in Munich during this years Oktoberfest for 4 days, but I noticed that all the online booking sites had practically no availability for any dates during the festival. The only availability that any had was a day here or there and there are no consecutive nights available. What are my chances of finding a place to stay if I arrive early and look. Will people cancel there reservations and spaces open up? Any suggestions on where I might look or what I could do? Thanks.

Yes, there’s always a certain pct. of cancellations.   If you go during the week (M-F), I would say you have a pretty good chance of finding a room…  Especially if you are going solo.  Try hitting these places – near the fest grounds, and I think you have a pretty good chance of getting a room via cancellation on weekday mornings:
 
 Hotel Jedermann
 Hotel Kurpfalz
 Hotel Amba
&nbspension Seibel

Guys.. if you have leads on hotel rooms… let someone know.. .. there are a lot of folks out there looking for rooms… I have actually filled up the Hostel at which i will be staying with a bunch of prospective Beer guzzlers.

Normally I am able to find my own accommodations through booking.com or venere.com or eurocheapo.com
Great websites
this year I couldn’t find anything within budget

So I went to info@statthotel.de

And they are an intermediary but I got a nice room with a minimum deposit close to the festivities.

If you are having problems finding a place contact them, I think they will do well for you,
